Sunken Party by TamarinFrog Sunken Party by TamarinFrog
Happy Halloween everybody! This is my entry for :iconpokemondaily:'s Halloween themed contest!

I always love to put effort into my Halloween pictures for some reason even tho the holiday is not a big thing here. I dunno. Something about it just inspires me.
This time, I wanted to do something different. You know how Halloween is usually linked together with candy and Autumn scenarios? Well, I wanted to make a Halloween party but in a very strange place. SO I chose two of my favourite ghostly jellyfish pokemon and decided to draw them dancing in a sunken ship (most likely sunken by them too) while other pokemon take care of the mood light.

Phew! I am so happy I managed to do this in time! I had the idea since the contest was announced but leave it to Tammy here to procrastinate and think that Pokemon Y won't distract her too much! Oh boy was I wrong. XD But hey, at least it's here on the right date! ;) Hope you like it and Happy Halloween again!

It's a beautiful and haunting picture. I love the idea of the Pokemon having a dance in a sunken ship (that they may have sunk).

Well, it's just that Jellicent are known by their pokedex entries to have some strange habits...
"The fate of the ships and crew that wander into Jellicent’s habitat: all sunken, all lost, all vanished."

I know, but including actual bodies in this pic would be way too graphical and wouldn't really contribute anything to the main idea, "underwater ball".

Let's say sharpedos ate the bodies.

Ah, okay. I'm really bad at catching sarcasm and jokes if there aren't any smiles or something indicating that it was a joke... ^^;

An impressive image. The lighting is gorgeous, and I love the texture of the piece that gives it an underwater feel. So many small details make it something I want to look over for a long time. Nice work!

When I see this, I couldn't help but think of the old couple that died together on the Titanic, given the nature of ghost Pokemon often having ties to once being human, it makes me think that they very well could be that couple if the tragedy of the Titanic existed in the Pokemon world. Not to make light of the event of course, it was just the first thought I had when I saw this piece.

The effort put into this picture really shows, especially with the attention paid to the details and shading. Like others have mentioned before, the Chinchou and Huntail lighting up the ship as well as the looming Sharpedo in the background are great touches!

This is the best Underwater Halloween Ghost Party I've ever seen! (Not that I have seen too many but still...) :la:.
Guess bringing drinks to the bottom of the sea isn't a very good idea once you think about it.

Wow, this is really cool! An underwater Halloween party, how original! Also pretty sinister, seeing these creepy cnidaria have apparently destroyed a vessel before literally dancing on its remains. 

Pretty cool job getting the Gothic-style spooky class with these frill-bearing ghosts elegantly waltzing around the room. I'm enjoying the background characters too, like the huntail snaking around the chandelier's wire. You can't have a classy villain without a glamorously accessorizing serpentine pet, now can you? That ominous, bioluminescent tail is just so eerie! I like the chinchou accommodating for the chandeliers' candles not being able to function underwater with their lights.

The algae, barnacles, corals and other underwater elements are plain gorgeous, and I also love the bubbles and ghostly, tattered curtains of the windows. Excellent rendition of everyone's favourite medusoid menaces!

Yeah, maybe because it is not that popular thus people don't bother to read their pokedex entries.
