Decidueye by ItsWolven Decidueye by ItsWolven
So I sort of fell in love with Decidueye. Coolest freakin' Pokemon ever. It may as well be my favorite Pokemon, out of every single one. Badass Grass/Ghost type owl archer thing? Yes please.

So here's a little fan art. And man, it was a journey. I nearly gave up in the sketching phase. I was having a really hard time getting the pose and lines of action right. But I figured it out-- The key was using a big ol' triangle and dividing it up. That pretty much set the foundation for the entire pose and I think it turned out really well because of that. I tried so many new techniques in this picture, so it was a great learning experience. I especially had fun playing around with the colors.

And of course I make the silly mistake of not even thinking about the background until after I pretty much finished the character. So, backgrounds are obviously not my strong point. I have much more fun just drawing characters, so I get lost in that and the background is often an afterthought. I wanna change that and get good at proper backgrounds, perspective and all. Soon™. 

Well, that's my little anecdote about this piece... Anyways, enjoy, and please let me know what you think!

Also you could probably use this as a desktop background if you wanted!

Primarina is my favorite because I have a soft spot for mermaids and seals, but Decidue is literally RIGHT behind it on love <3

I can respect that, I've seen a lot of cool Primarina art. I didn't really care for Popplio at first but that evolution definitely won me over!

Man this looks great, can't wait to get my hands on the game. I still have to suffer until Wednesday though, stupid EU.

At first I wasn't sure if I liked any of the starter's final evolutions after seeing the leaks, but after a while (and a bunch of great fanart) pretty much all of them grew on me. I was still hoping for an awesome fire tiger or something similar (at least on all fours), but I guess I'll have to take what I can get. At least shiny Incineroar (not sure if that's correct, typing this from memory) looks like a golden Tiger, so that's definitely something I will have to get in the future.

All in all though Decidueye looks and feels the best. Thinking about it, all bird starters have been great so far, I actually picked all of the so far (gen3 & 4), and it looks like I'll continue doing so.

Again, great piece of fanart, and as Garuda already said, I think the background fits too! Maybe put some more light in the foreground plus a fitting hard shadow (think of a spotlight), otherwise the well-lit Decidueye here clashes a bit against the dark background, making it feel a tiny bit out of place.

Keep it up!

Oh yeah, I totally agree about Incineroar. I had such high hopes for Litten... but Incineroar sorta disappointed me. I was totally hoping for some badass quadrupedal tiger. Also, Incineroar's hands bother me... they look weird. But what he lacks in design he makes up for in character, I suppose. So it's not too bad.

And I see what you're saying there. Duly noted! Thanks!
Have fun when you get the game, I've only just started but it looks very promising!

Dude, he looks awesome. I didn't know he was ghost type and it make it even cooler. I would choose him without a doubt. 
You really nailed the pose and I like how the simple background puts a ghostly atmosphere.

Thanks, glad you like it! Who knew Rowlet would have such a great final evolution?
