To Become Complete by ShadeofShinon To Become Complete by ShadeofShinon
I really like Kyurem, I like it's typing, I like it's design even though the sprites are a little derpy and I like it's story. Even though we don't know much of it - yet. I hope the upcoming new Pokemon games will explain it more. I also feel pretty bad for Kyurem, I see him as kind of a miserable Pokemon. I don't care if he's claimed to eat Pokemon and people.

I drew this picture because I like Kyurem, because I haven't done any cell-shaded picture in a while and I just wanted to draw something good - rather to prove myself that I don't suck than to show off. I've been feeling dissatisfied about my art lately - nothing new, it happens every now and then - mainly because there are so many artists who are better than me but also because I feel that I haven't improved much lately. In fact, looking back at my older works I think some of them are so much better than what I've done since.
I'm not having an art block but lack of motivation. It'll go away...hopefully soon? I'll try to work harder and see if it helps (if I can gather enough motivation to actually start something). I think I'll redo one of my oldest pieces in my gallery.
Oh, and did I mention I learned something when I drew this? Well, I did. I learned that I hate drawing ice.

Anyway, sorry for the rant, I hope you like the picture!

Kyurem rules! It has the most beautyful background-story of all pokemon. His endless search for wish or reality to heal his destroyed body...

Besides: Awesome work! :-)

THE WINGS!!!!!awesome smiley animated 
Neat pic :)

And that title just made me realize something.

Kyurem is very powerful, but "incomplete".

According to legend, it eats people.

By absorbing Reshiram and Zekrom, it obtains even more power, and changes its form, becoming more and more "complete".

And the item used to fuse it is called the DNA Splicer.

Kyurem is the Pokeverse's version of Cell! :omg:
