The Reincarnated by ShadeofShinon The Reincarnated by ShadeofShinon
The lighning that struck the tower,
the fire that burned it down,
and the wind and rain that put out the flames.

Their master took pity on them and brought them back to life
and made them legends.


Yet another Japanese styled Pokemon painting. I've been wanting to draw the legendary beast trio for such a long time and now I finally got myself to do it. The idea I had for this picture was quite different from the outcome but I still kind of like it. The picture looks a little too cramped to me, I guess I've been working too much on bigger surfaces so making the beasts small was quite difficult. Also, I wanted to add something to the background but I guess it should've been something more muted.
Oh well, it was fun to do these again. I'm going to make more soon. :>

I hope you like it!

Sweet, another Japanese-style picture!

I love how you gave the beasts a kind of draconic look to them. I don't always like draconic portrayals of pokémon that aren't the type, but I think the slightly dragon-like faces are cool here, kind of making these creatures look like oriental-style beasts of lore. That and the beast trio actually doesn't have particularly mammalian-looking faces. I also love entei and suicune's paws, you really got the style down to really resemble drawings of Eastern legend. And of course the cloudy/smoky/hazy manes are fantastic as ever.

Am I reading right that you used coffee to make this picture? I would like to know how one applies coffee of all things to a painting, I really would.

Thank you!

I find it quite funny you see them as draconic portrayals. That wasn't my intention. I merely studied how beasts were portrayed in oriental and more specifically Japanese art.
And as for applying coffee, I just painted the paper with it before starting to work on the actual picture. You can find the whole process in my Japanese Painting Tutorial. No coffee was consumed by the artist. I don't like coffee.

Love the change in style! It fits the style of the Japanese legend, and you did a great job with the coloring as well. Clearly you spent a lot of time on this. Also, did you ever hear the theory that these three are reincarnated versions of Jolteon, Flareon and Vaporeon?

"Coffee"

haha. =p

Yes, I've heard of that theory and I think it does make sense. Still, I like to think of the beast trio as unique species instead or just hardcore Eeveelutions.

Coffee is a very nice art medium!
