It's My Minions Versus Thee by ShadeofShinon It's My Minions Versus Thee by ShadeofShinon
Honchkrow for "Draw Every Pokemon" in Nuzlocke forums.

I love Honchkrow, I really do. I love big badass birds but Honckrow has more than just that. It's a boss. In fact, according to Pokedex it is a Big Boss Pokemon. Inspired by that I decided to draw a boss Honchkrow with a lot of Murkrow minions. The title is a part of "The Cage" by Sonata Arctica. I freaking love that song. And I also thought it'd make a good title for this picture. Lots of birdssss....

Anyway, I kind of like how this turned out. There are a few things that don't seem quite right to me but to be honest I'm so fed up drawing feathers and stuff for now that I don't even care.
I hope you like it! :>

The minute I saw the title I said 'Sonata Artica' And I was right! Surprisingly fitting... ;^_^
I like the birds but they're missing the Murkrow 'hat' though I'm not quite sure its possible to acheive the 'hat' with feathers...

Yay, someone recognized the title!
I'm personally not a fan of putting on accessories such as hats on Pokemon, even when it's part of the design so I try to do things such as the hat form with more realistic means. I just don't like the idea of every Murkrow being born with a detachable hat.

true, true. That hat really is weird. Sometimes I wonder what the designers were thinking.

Outstanding job!
My brother has a custom team of five Murkrow and a Honchkrow, just because he likes crows and ravens, and these bad-ass birds are no exception.
I can only imagine that sort of team to belong to a mafia style gym leader... Giovanni maybe?

That sounds like an awesome team! Maybe I should make a team like that as well, because of this picture and because I, too, love crows and ravens.
I could imagine Giovanni or any higher member of TR having a team like that.

Honchkrow is such a BAMF. I never gave him so much credit before, but here lately I began to realize just how good Honchie really is.

Yeah, Honchkrow is really badass. I love ravens and birds in general but I never really had an opinion on Murkrow. Until Honchkrow came.

Ooh, Ravenlord! I think I might've played that song once or twice while drawing this picture because ravens. What actually inspired me was just a single line from a single song - the title line. Otherwise Ravenlord would be much more fitting.
