Rain Dance by ShadeofShinon Rain Dance by ShadeofShinon
I did this a while ago for Nuzlocke Forums "Draw Every Pokemon" project but didn't submit it here, only tumblr and the forums, and I don't even know why. I like this myself so why not. On the other hand, I don't want to spam you with all of my speedpaints but since I haven't submitted anything in a while I guess it's okay.

Milotic is a freaking cool Pokemon. Ridiculously hard to get but worth it. And it's a sea serpent. :heart:
I experimented with the colours a little and I like how the sky turned out.

I hope you like it!

I am an admin on Facebook page and I am wondering if I can use your artwork on that page. I will leave a link to your gallery in every post that has any of your artwork in it.

Since you asked so nicely you may use my artwork as long as it's properly credited and sourced.

I think if any work can make use of the less is more clause to make milotic shine, this would be it. You've made me love milotic more by painting just its front, back and middle than I usually have seeing it in full. There's some real character you've given it half-hidden in the waves, giving the sense of a mysterious sea beast which never is truly within reach - something quite true of milotic itself. The omission of visible eyes and the fact that the perspective leaves much of the visible side in shadow just adds to the mystique. Really well done scales and tail, and that looping coil arching out of the water like one of those tires half buried in the cement lined up to form a sea serpent is really engaging. The circular shape almost imitates the curve of a crashing wave, suggesting stormy seas as this creature summons a rainstorm. Speaking of waves, the water here looks excellent, and what can I say of the sky and clouds more than, "Brilliant!"? 

Magnificently, mysterious milotic, marvellous!

Thank you very much!
I'm still very fond of this piece, even if it's quite old now. I've always found Milotic's mystic nature especially fascinating so it's very nice to hear you think I've managed to capture it here.
I've been planning to draw Milotic more, maybe one day I'll get to do an idea or two I've had for some time.

I also remember the first time I was hunting for a Feebas. So many hours of work. But it was worth it in the end. Milotic is amazing.
Thank you!
