Skyforger by ShadeofShinon Skyforger by ShadeofShinon
I was supposed to do something productive today but then a wild five-second sketch of Rayquaza's head appeared and I got really inspired to draw the whole Pokemon! Rayqyaza's cool so I don't actually mind I wasted so many hours on this.
I realized that I haven't drawn almost any buildings in my pictures. Not that it bothers me, I get to draw quite a lot of buildings anyway. Speaking of which, that's not Sky Pillar, just a random tower. Sky Pillar would have to be a lot bigger if that Rayquaza should be able to nest on the top of it.
There are a few things in this picture that I thing would need some fixing but I've been working on this picture nonstop for so many hours (I lost the count) that I decided it was finished.

I hope you like it!

Thanks! It totally needs some teeth, being the epic beast that created the skies and whatnot.

Well, I think he didn´t actually create the skies. He´s just the one who has to divide Groudon and Kyogre when they fight...

To me that sounds a bit too little for such a legendary so I like to think he also created the skies. It makes him seem much more influential and important.

Thats true. A creature of his power has always more importance.

That I am also aware,
that should be a joke...
But honestly: I do not think that finns fit for Rayquaza...
Rayquaza is a "sky serpent dragon",no water dragon...

ShadeofShinon Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Really? I think fins or fin-like things would fit a sky serpent dragon very well. They could be a way of showing off. Also, technically those aren't fins but frills which are a completely different thing. A lot of dragons have frills. As for Rayquaza, he could use those as sails that help him in his flight through the skies. In my opinion, they also make him look more impressive and god-like.
