I believe in magic. I believe in dragons and fairies. I also believe that Sylveon can look cute and fairy-like without looking like unicorn puke at the same time.

Second bookmark set based on the poll from a while ago. Yveltal and Xerneas popped out a few times so I chose to draw bookmarks of them. I also added Sylveon even though it was barely mentioned because i though that of all Pokemon it would somehow fit the best. Even though the new legendaries and Sylveon are vastly different there is something similar, too. I guess that's the mystery of each Pokemon. We only know their names, and Sylveon's type. Yet everything else is still unknown, hence the title.
I just can't get over Sylveon's hideous official art. It has nice colours and nice design under all that cotton candy it's been covered with.

I like how this set came out. I hope you like it, too!

Lovely bookmarks!
I agree about sylveon, it's way over the top, it dosn't even look like evee or any of the other eveelutions. This is one of the only depictions of it that doesn't make me want to puke, so well done to you my friend!

Yeah, same here. Although I wouldn't mind if the sprites would do more justice to the Pokemon.

I agree with you on Slyveon, I've seen some really good artwork for it that make it look way less terrible. Yours is one of them.

Agreed, Sylveon's official art is absolutely horrendous - it doesn't even look like the other Eeveeloutions! The head, eyes, and body are all wrong.

Floofy Xerneas! X-D

I agree. It looks too different from Eeveelutions. I think they're cute as they are but Sylveon is just trying too hard.
His fluffy majesty. 'D

I can't stress this enough: you probably made the most perfect design for Xerneas I've seen(though I haven't seen much), and I'm looking forward to learn if Xerneas can live up to the awesomeness you gave it here!

Also Sylveon and Yveltal looks really good. I also do agree with you on Sylveon; somewhere underneath all the 7-year-old-princess-girl-design there is acutally a really nice design.
