Yveltal for Pokeddex 2013 that I just completed despite being a few months late. There will be a dump with all the paintings I did for the challenge but I wanted to upload this one separately as well.
This piece is for favourite gen 6 legendary and even though I love Xerneas's majestic beauty a huge bird of death takes the spot for me. The design is just amazing and I love the concept. Yveltal is definitely a fearsome beast that fits its role perfectly.
I quite like this design. Yveltal's "hands" are pretty interesting. While I don't think of them as real hands I didn't want to make them just feathers either. In this design I tried to make them look more like spikes, claws, extensions of the bones in Yveltal's wings while making them blend in the feathers in the wings. And instead of making the head pieces feathers I drew them as horns.
I hope you like it! And stay tuned for the mega dump!
