New Face at the Corsola Reef by TamarinFrog New Face at the Corsola Reef by TamarinFrog
This is a (VERY) late Birthday gift for :iconpynni:. Sorry this took so long! ^^; Happy (late) birthday! Hope this was worth of the wait.

So, I went and tried some new things with this (which is not the smartest idea when you are doing a gift picture) and I'm pleased with the outcome. I need to do more of these "soft styled" Pics, even though it takes me 3x more time to do these.

I used Corel Painter Essential 3 and Photoshop for color editing and some last minute work.

Pokemon (c) Nintendo

Edit: Aaw heck! I just realised I forgot cradily's yellow head spots! And yeah, I'm not sure anymore if cradilys can life underwater but meh... This one does.

Sorry, just figured it out. I was just confused, as Cradily itself is pretty old... (prehistoric) But I'm not here to critique you, I think it is an excellent work, and I love Cradily, with or without "eye" spots on its head. I'm pretty sure Vaporeon is not very effective against Giga Drain, either, lol!

This is drawn very well! I really like the lighting effects from the pokemon being underwater. It looks very realistic ^_^ The corsola are cute, and yeah I'm not sure if Cradily do live underwater, but they are an interesting pokemon.

Considering that cradily's based on something that lived underwater (and sort-of still does)...
I'd go with 'yeah, it can live underwater' ([link]).

Cradily looks kinda odd without the spots... but it was done well enough that I don't think it really matters.
Yaycradily! *wants to hug it*

Also, that's nice water. I like that water.

Nope, only Kabuto/Kabutops and Omanyte/Omastar are water types. The rest are different. Aerodactyl is Rock/Flying, Lileep/Cradily is Rock/Grass and Anorith/Armaldo is Rock/Bug. Cradidos/Rampardos is pure Rock and Sheildon/Bastiodon is Rock/Steel. Hope that cleared things up ^^;

You know, this makes me think: Where do all the pokemon fit into their world's ecosystem? It's an established fact that some pokemon hunt other pokemon. To compose a structure just with the current 493 pokemon alone would take a while.

You've demonstrated just how talented you are at painting here, its something im yet to master (or even experiment with). The detail is wonderful, you chose the right technique for this piece, because had it been cel shaded, i think the background of the water would not have looked quite as nice as it does here. Wonderful job. ^__^

Just one thing, i think maybe you could have drawn the white lines on cradilly a little softer, a lighter opacity. Because it dosent look quite right here, almost like scars. ^^; It could be because they're too thin as well.

Over all though, really impressive. :nod:

Hmm... Good point. I was eager to finish this after 3 days of working on this so I made those white lines pretty fast. But yeah, I agree.

As always, another piece of your work I love :'D

I know you get swamped with comments, But it's nice to see how I'm not the only only who prefers drawing Vaporeons with transparant-y white head fins (instead of the sprites light cream colour) and the neck fin being all floaty and free. Beautiful.

Vaporeons onve of my favourite pokemon, so I always love seeing it wonderfully drawn x3 Swooshing fins, pointed paws, cat like features - perfect xD

Anyway, this has turned out longer than I ment |D Draw more eeveelutions! }D

Oh, and one quick question - is Saria your Leafeon named after Saria from Ocarina of Time? I was going to get one named Saria after her, and have it playing an ocarina, but you beat me to the name x3

right! /long comment

Thank you and yes, Saria is named after the character from OoT. I also have gardevoir named Zelda, Miltank named Malon and Mamoswine named Ganondorf. I'm planning to train gallade (Link) and vaporeon (Ruto) someday.
