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.

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 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!
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.
