Tornadus the Wind Waker by TamarinFrog Tornadus the Wind Waker by TamarinFrog
For :iconpokedex-collection:'s pokemon appreciation week! This time, tornadus!

First time drawing this guy! I admit, I like his therian design more but I decided to draw him in his normal form because reasons and I am happy I did that. This was actually a lot of fun and I started to like this form a bit more too. I suppose the lesson here is, don't judge the pokemon until you have tried to draw it yourself.

Tornadus is really cool considering he is the only pure flying type pokemon (arceus and kecleon obviously not included).

Never really liked Tornadus or any of his other forms- they just look like mentally challenged Zeus copies.

Has someone noticed that Tornadus is the ONLY pure flying type pokemon?

Great artwork!

Am I the only one who thinks he looks like the two wind gods from LOZ WindWaker. I mean seriously doesn't he remind you of those two. Particularly the red one. Well not an exact duplicate but maybe if you combined Thor and one of those two.

I do remember when I was playing Pokémon Black, and after countless tries I finally managed to capture this Pokémon! Jesus, it was hard to catch, but it was worth it at the end.

You know, looking at this, I've always wondered how Tornadus or any of the 3 cloud pokemon would react to a Lakitu.... or Lakitu to them for that matter. lol. This looks amazing though! I like the added touch of the wind wisps.

Tornadus is one of my more favorite Legendaries in Pokemon because he so freaking cool looking XD.
This actually reminds me of that one Bugs Bunny episode where Elmer Fudd was a weather God and Bugs was a female Viking...I think it's the pose Tornadus is in.

Oh! Forgot to mention I love the colours and the little wisps of wind :3

I'm praying that the RNG chooses the other two Djinns eventually hahah XD I love this trio of pokemon and their history in the games. The fact that they were all bringers of destruction except for their master landorus was fascinating to me.. especially the part where he became a sort of deity in their eyes from how he healed the land.

TamarinFrog Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Haha! I actually hope that too. It would be fun to draw them all.

I admit, I didn't research much about these three (I was more curious about the musketeer trio) but what you told sounds very interesting. I need to look into them more. :)

erhm Should have said a sort of deity in the eyes of Unovans XD but yes I am a pretty big pokemon Myth nerd hahaha. Canalave was a huge nintendo god... or arceus? send to me~ the library was an absolute delight to spend time in. oh dear my nerdy is showing again although I actually do spend most days of college in the library...

how you're doing such clean and neat lines? All free handed?  ;u;

Aaw, thanks. I just use very big canvas and resolution and big brushes with eraser in my aid when needed. (and pen tool whenever my hand is not steady enough).

fluwe Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I should try that some time as well o3o
(Especially that Pen-Tool, but I always had the feeling it doesn't feel good with my wonky style...)

:icontamarinfrog:
TamarinFrog Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Pen tool can feel a bit too mechanic but with practice, you can use it effectively with any style. :) Personally I like to do this mix. Draw with free hand but use pen tool in some places. Here, for example, I used pen tool to make the long part of tornadus' tail. Making something that long and keeping your hand steady all the time would be really hard to do by free hand.

fluwe Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Uhm, sounds logic to me. But then again: do you don't use shape dynamics for the brush? 
Maybe because of that it always looked off to me... 
Reply
:icontamarinfrog:
TamarinFrog Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
I always have shape dynamics (aka, pen pressure) on when I do thicker line than 3. (I don't have it when I do those fakeshots for example). But with pen tool.... Then I don't usually use pen pressure UNLESS I am doing the whole picture (or major parts of it) with pen tool. For example, this was about 90% pen tool: fav.me/d5kqrfo
