Commission: Samael's Team by ShadeofShinon Commission: Samael's Team by ShadeofShinon
A Pokemon team commssion for :iconshadow-wulfe13:

This is by far the biggest commission I've done. It took a ridiculous amount of time, much more than I expected but I think it was well worth it. It's been a while since I did a Photoshop painting but it was all good. I learned many things while doing this and I think I outdid myself when it comes to patience. I'm quite proud of how this one came out and I especially like the Togekiss. I also like how Gallade turned out give it's weird design.

I hope you like it! :>

Time taken Seems I've stopped checking the time but I'd estimate it took 25-30 hours.

My goodness, that background is incredible! It looks movie-poster perfect! Those crimson clouds are just so stunning and they look fantastic reflected in that rushing river. And the mountain and valley are breathtaking! And that team looks like a force to be reckoned with!

I've never been much of a togekiss fan, but this one is utterly awe inspiring. The way it spreads its wings, the mountains and land splitting asunder around it as if it can literally move mountains with its sheer force, this beast is a sight to behold. Those eyes are simply hypnotic, and the feather details bring to mind an angel ready for Armageddon. I love the birdlike look, you really give me a whole new appreciation for these chunky, funnily-bodied flying types. 

Your interpretation of snorlax is fantastic as well. I love how you've given it a look which makes it resemble a giant ground sloth which has exceeded its sloth peers in slothfulness, having gained such heavy bulk. The fur and especially those claws are really well done and I love snorlax's indignant expression which makes it appear to be irritated at having to wake up and ready to inflict brutal agony on whomever put it in a situation in which it had to. 

Great work on arcanine, I love the seamless blend of canine and feline features you give this pokémon. I especially love the stripes on this one and this Legendary Pokémon sure looks majestic with its mane blowing in the wind. 

That seaking's splash as it leaps from the river is just phenomenal. You really put your skills at effects to good work. The sight of the foamy wave shooting up, reddened in the sunset is a treat to the eyes. And it's really cool how you turned its "fangs" into little barbels, kind of like on a real koi. That's a pretty cool gallade too. Kind of reminds me of how :iconannaj: draws that line. Like a noble alien. Really cool.

Exquisite composition and some jaw-droppingly good designs here. Shadow Wulfe sure is lucky to have received something like this!

Metagross is a very tank like Pokemon to begin with.

I know, but in the sprites and stuff, he looks a little slender...

I don't know. I think you just made his vertical fatness a little too much.

still a good picture, though.

I make a lot of modifications to the sprites. I simply felt like giving it more mass would make it look like more a steel tank. The proportions in the sprites often look of to me. Besides, the commissioner was happy with this and that's all that matters.

I REALLY like your work! You've done a great job there! Especially the way how Togekiss looks like the strongest of this team! It seems like it has a mystic influence over the rest of its team mates.

The Togekiss is the best! One of my favourite Pkmn. Goddamn it, your style is so amazing. Realistic and beautiful, but they still look like Pokemon! <3

Love what you did with the Togekiss, I was never really a fan of the design but this makes it look amazing. I like it much better than the original.

So, he spelled Samuel wrong because he got a pretty big coincidence.
