Commission: Team Rocket Executive Blayze by ShadeofShinon Commission: Team Rocket Executive Blayze by ShadeofShinon
Pokemon Team commission for :iconisilwenshadewind:, her Team Rocket OC and team.
:bulletgreen: Here's a couple of detail shots: sta.sh/025jgc4boywa

I enjoyed drawing this, partly because of the awesome Pokemon, partly because of the atmosphere in it. It was really nice to draw a Team Rocket member, I love how ominous they are as an organization. I'm quite happy how it came out and the commissioner seemed pleased, too.
Just a small note to people who may wonder, some details that don't seem to match with the original designs of the Pokemon were requested by the commissioner so don't get confused. :>

I hope you like it!

I love it when people do pokemon in a realistic style. Unlike me, who just, well, tries to draw them as they are...Sweating a little... 
Just another look... Yes, I like it. I like it a lot. Meow :3

I'm glad to hear you like it! Nothing wrong with drawing Pokemon as they are. I just find this style easier for me to do and more enjoyable/challenging ans easier to personalize. Also, I've always wondered what Pokemon would look like if they were real so that's how I ended up drawing them like this. :>

So, are commissions your main thing you do? I have to say, They're magnificent!

I would like to say no but at the moment I only have time for commissions. If I had time I would like to concentrate mainly on personal art and projects but first I have to finish my commissions.
Anyway, thank you!

Love the "anatomically correct" Charizard :) (Smile)  Since there are no natural 6-limbed mammals or lizards a lot of creative license can be taken, but wings are almost identical to bat wings and the limbs are very much like a Komodo dragon's and look almost natural (especially since the wing size is accurate for something as heavy as a Charizard).

Yeah, that's what I like about dragons and dragon-like creatures - you can use your creative license a lot. But yeah, that's pretty much how I designed this one. Thanks!

At first I thought the Starraptor was a gryphon, and I spent a minute trying to think of which Pokemon was gryphon-like before I realized it's 'back paws' were actually a Trapinch. Haha. The whole pic is awesome though, I wish I had the funds to commission one of my team.

It's probably the harpy eagle -esque that does that. But that's not a bad thing at all
Thank you! If you some day have the funds and I'm open for commission, feel free to note me. :>

I am going to SAI so much until I can make badass things like this. I frigging love how you just make it so badass SAI despite the fact you can't do as much with it as in Photoshop.

ShadeofShinon Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I like that attitude! SAI and Photoshop are both great programs that have very different functions. One is better for some things while the other is better for something else. But don't forget you can mix them, too, since SAI can save in .psd!

Very nice! I love the detail in the Luxray (especially the scar on his snout). The Charizard is once again awesome ;) I love how almost gryphon-like Starraptor looks like as well! Great work!

Thank you! I'm glad you like it. The gryphon flair probably originates from harpy eagle, which I base my Staraptor on.

Tortola looks like Staraptor's back feet, making me think it was a Staraptor gryphon for a second.XD

One of my fakemon inspired fakemon is a Dark/flying black and grey gryphon. Remember that really convincing fake starter pic that sprang up before DP came out when everyone thought the starters were going to be Dark, fighting and Psychic? The one that had the beaked cat, the white kangaroo, and the purple triceratops? Well I kinda adopted the beaked cat and made evos for it based on 'winged' cats, real life cats with Matthew fur or skin growths that can be mistaken for wings. The second form would grow the pseudo wings while the final form would be a full flying type and a full blown Gryphon.XD
