RD - Rupert the Toxicroak by TamarinFrog RD - Rupert the Toxicroak by TamarinFrog
And here is Rupert!

Now we are getting to characters that have some changes in them!

First, I have to admit that I simply adore how ~dynamo5 drew Rupert in her comic version of "Toxicroak Prince" and her style has slightly affected me here. (seriously, if you haven't read her comic, DO IT: [link])

Second, I think I have always drawn Rupert's head horn bending back but now it is emphasized more.

And next, he has now a small gap in his front teeth.

And, his new favourite sugar drink is no longer Pokecola, but "Payapa Pop". This drink is made of payapa berries thus it is kinda expensive and rare. But it has the same effect as the berry thus Rupert can actually take some psychic hits. (it is also rumored that the drink causes addiction but this has not been confirmed).

I preferred when his... poison sac thing was round, like before, but that's just me. He looks awesome otherwise :D Love the gap between his teeth and the horn bending backwards.

I don't know if anyone's said this yet, but the gap in his teeth totally reminds me of Donatello from the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles show they're playing on Nickelodeon.

Oh! So he is based off of him!

So in that case, does he also have a crush on a girl that will never work out? :iconawesomefaceplz:

Mostly little things in their appearance (to make them stand out of the normal ones) and their past histories (how Elisa got them etc). Nothing else really.

I was about to point out that it looked more like ~dynamo5's style now :D
For those wondering, Payapa Pop has always been his favorite drink, but since its rare and expensive (And he takes huge doses a day) Elisa gets him Pokecola instead most of the time :la:

Interesting to see some character with changes now. Although in all honesty they are quite subtle unless you look closely, kind of like Scratch's freckles. Still he is a very handsome Toxicroak nonetheless.

The style you are using right now for them seems to make them look a lot more cartoony. I still like your old style better.

The only thing I will admit is I like the way his poison sac was a little better before, but your definetly still right about the Toxicroak Prnce design.

Gap teeth usually make a character look funnier, is Rupert headed in that direction a bit?

Hmm a change in soda, so does he still like Pokecola or is he exclusivley on Payapa Soda?

Hmm actually that soda sounds tasty, even tastier then Pokecola *Drools*

Lucky Rupert now has a handy opening for his sugary drinks to go through. I hope all that sugar doesn't make the gap bigger. Come to think of it, now that raises questions as to how he got it...

Heh heh, neat.

To be honest with you... This one isn't ugly, but it's really bad if you compare it with your old style...
