Kaukomieli by ShadeofShinon Kaukomieli by ShadeofShinon
[Farmind]

A proof that I'm not dead and still know how to draw.
I haven't had time to draw almost at all thanks to school and Pokemon XY. I've been wanting to draw something from the games ever since I got them in my hands but I simply didn't have the time. Now I have some, which I'm going to use on commissions and my Nuzlocke update.
I drew this sketchy little thing of my Lucario Kaukomieli. He is the shining star of my team and even though I disliked the way Mega Lucario looks I have to admit that normal Lucario looks a bit plain and not nearly as badass and hc as Mega Lucario. Not to mention the stat boost Lucario gets upon mega evolution. I'm still not a big fan of the concept and I wish it was better included in the story (I love how they did it, but I wish there was a bit more...something) and most of the mega evolutions are ugly as fuck. But Mega Lucario is so metal.
I pretty much just played around with stuff, tried to remember how things work and try out something new. I like how this came out, oherwise I woul've probably just kept it Tumblr exclusive.

I hope you like t! Expect to see more art and streams from me soon!

It'd be cool to see an anime episode with more realistic versions of Pokemon. Even just one.
Thanks!

Sure looks like the beast there! Nice going on this guy. Also, that's one cool background! I wonder if he's facing a vicious porygonZ or something. Great perspective, makes this lucario look larger than life!

The bg was born when I found a neat brush from my downloaded brushes. You can think he's facing a Porygon Z but my initial thought was that he's just showing off or is just finishing the mega evolution sequence.

okay I dont remember if I have commented on this already or not but this is awesome. I love mega lucario and this is just a cool picture. I particularly like the staging/pose and "camera angle" that combined with the lighting (which I have recently become hyper-aware of haha) makes this piece very dynamic and action-y. did I mention its awesome?

He's perfect! My fave's mega evolutions are m'Abomasnow and m'Banette, but after trying out the former without much success, I think I'm just gonna use Banette for my mega. those two are pretty much the only ones I care about, other than m'Aggron (which I like but not as much).

Thank you! I think my favourites are Charizard Y and Houndoom. Banette and Lucario are also cool. I'm a bit disappointed in Aggron though. I wish they didn't make it look like it ran to a wall. If the head was different I'd like it a lot more.

As wonderful as the subject is, can I say I'm more of a fan of that beautifully rendered background? c:
Of course Mega Lucario is metal. It's a steel typed Pokemon after all! <brik'd>

I like Mega Lucario, and honestly the design is a part of it. There are lines on the body that kinda remind me of Yveltal.

 

I really don't know which Mega Evolution's my favorite. Kangashkan had a neat concept, Gyarados scared me to death, and Garchomp is a beast. I haven't seen them all yet, and I'm kinda playing around with them atm.

 

Great pic, as always. :D What made you think of the name, btw? Is it Norse?

Reply
:iconshadeofshinon:
ShadeofShinon Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I think the resemblance to Yveltal makes sense considering the story.

Mega Kangaskhan is very neat but also a bit too much. I mean, it gets to hit twice. It's awesome that Kangaskhan got such a boost though. Mega Gyarados is one of the few that I actually like. It's so awesome! I'm not a big fan of Garchomp's design. Looks like pointy chins is a theme among mega evolutions and Garchomp's blades make me so mad. The blades are all wrong, I mean, just look at them! It makes my head hurt.

No, the name is Finnish. I named my Y Pokemon after Finnish mythology names.

I see.

 

Y'know, I think my mom's side of the family is part-Norwegian (plus French, Dutch, and more besides...it's pretty diverse).

 

But Finnish mythology? Huh. Tell me more. 0.0

I have no idea about my roots. My surname originates from France but I don't know if it has anything to do with my roots.

Finnish mythology is pretty much Kalevala. It's our national epic, a book of myths and stories gathered and put together by one man. I think there are myths that are not part of Kalevala, but the epic has most of them, I think. Then there are some folk stories as well.

Maybe, maybe not. My last name is German, but from what I understand my dad's side of the family had come and been in America for quite awhile.

 

Interesting. I've just made a note to myself to look into this Kalevala - myths have held a kind of fascination in me, particularly Aesops and hero-tales.

I caught a Riolu at level 5 or something and added him to my team very early ... so I hated how everyone just got a Lucario later in the game. I never trained that one, even though it was a cute story, but I didn't like how you just got him and he became mainstream. If it wasn't for the Lucarionite I'd have probably just refused him to join me.

Great drawing by the way, I love Lucario's Mega Elovution <3
He's so badass x3

I didn't even know about the Lucario thing, I played the game blindfolded. It may be mainstream, but the story was nice and I love Lucario and I couldn't possibly say no to a free Lucario.

Thanks though!

I didn't know about it either I just knew I wanted a Lucario in my team but I was a little upset when suddenly everyone had one. Maybe that's a weird way of thinking though xD

:iconshadeofshinon:
ShadeofShinon Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Nah, I get you. I'm usually against anything mainstream unless I really, really like it myself. I used to dislike Lucario a bit because it was so mainstream, but when I used one I completely changed my mind. Now I just ignore the mainstream and do what I want. I even evolved my shiny Eevee into an Espeon mostly because shiny Umbreon is too mainstream. (I do like shiny Espeon a lot, though.)

WindSwirl Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Ah I'm glad you agree ^^
I still love my self-caught Lucario, he kicks the asses of the Lucarios people got as present, and he kills Charizards :D
And shiny Espeons are awesome! I think a shiny Espeon was the first shiny I've ever seen. Someone had one in the Duel tower in Leaf Green ...

ShadeofShinon Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Self caught are usually better. Though it does depend how you train them. My EV's are all messed up so it's not a wonder if my Lucario gets his ass handed to him.
Aren't they! Normally such coloration would only make my head hurt but for some reason I think the bright green fits Espeon really well.

I've got a bright green Machamp but I can't really say it suits him xD
It does look good on Espeon though!
Ahh I never really care too much about EV's either, I'm happy if they are good but I'm also using pokemon with bad stats as long as I like them ^^
And I hardly ever use legends, too.

:iconshadeofshinon:
ShadeofShinon Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Haha, I have a green Machoke I should evolve (in my Diamond, back then I had no one to trade with) and it really does look weird. Not that the Machamp line is aesthetically pleasing in the first place, but the green colour doesn't exactly make it any better.
I used to be like that but then I got interested in competitive and I've started to think about it more. When I play the games I hardly think about it, but when I start training other Pokemon and creating other teams for online battling EV's are a must.
And I don't use legendaries either. I catch them but they're mostly just decorations. Not because I don't like them, but because I think using them is a bit cheap.
