Arceus by sanguisGelidus Arceus by sanguisGelidus
In the night of conception,
light and dark matter whirring in the emptiness,
Arceus executed his first creation,
the legendary Pokemon...

---

Arceus, the creator of all Pokemon...

Well, I have not watched Pokemon sense the first season ended, but I have to say, this is amazing. Not only the Pokemon, (if i am correct that this is a Pokemon) but even the scene in the background looks like something that you'd see in a dream that you would never want to escape. The colors are beautiful and even though the planet in the background is in darkness, you can guess that it is Earth. I love this a lot. And it's no wonder that tons are favoriting it, downloading it and commenting on this beautiful picture. It's truly amazing.
What do you think?

This is a really amazing piece of art. What captured my sight is the correct anatomy of this pokemon, the glow and the colour palette you picked. These cool (cold, not awesome) colours give a really noticeable appearance of space, and the black reflection of that energy wave Arceus p-i-c-k-s tells us that he's in some kind of an orb, though I can be mistaken.
What I want to pay special attention to is the golden cross-like wheel attached to its torso. You illustrated it so perfectly that I can even feel the...well, let's say shape, or embossing, ugh I can't pick the right word, but I think you understood what I mean.
Another touch that caught my sight is the energy-thing Arceus is standing on, and the ripples on it. That looks magical in a pokemon style and...cold.
This picture is really stunning. Keep it up!^^

This is incredible! It looks like Arceus is weaving the universe together with those pointy feet of his.
This would make an epic destop background.

And um... Unown have some relation to Arceus, possibly being the 'thousand arms' so that could've been something to work into this.

Creator of the Pokemon world, but not Pokemon in general. Most Pokemon came from Mew.

Of all the Pokemon they could have chosen to be God, why Arceus? As a kid, I always thought that Mew was the Pokegod, and even now, out of all the possible legendaries, I still wouldn't have picked Arceus.

Even though it was in the 1st Generation of Pokemon, but I believe, that in the 1st Movie, when the tears of life was complete, when that beam of light appeared, Arceus returned the soul of Ash Ketchum to his original body.

So how's that Palkia picture coming?

Sorry, seeing the description and upload date I couldn't resist teasing. This is very very wonderful looking. An added thought is maybe if you do Arceus again you could have it with a cloud of Unown.

Mew isn't the Origin of *All* Pokémon. Just the origin of regular Pokémon and some Legendary. It's Obvious Arceus created Mew. To create the regular Pokémon.

I don't think the critics did good in saying what the purple does for the pokemon. I am not a fan of the newer generations, and with the more powerful legendary pokemon, I honestly have lost a lot of interest since the third season, but I love the colours you used here and have actually become interested in this pokemon because of it.

The use of purple, however, is where I differ greatly on. Purple, like deep, vibrant purple, has historically been used as a sign of power. Roman emperors would wear deep purple robes that no one under them was even allowed to own. It greatly suits Arceus. Even more, it is elegant, pastel colours can appear obnoxious and messy if not fitting for the setting; to put it here is far from fitting. It is gorgeous and gives more an air of unimaginable power and beauty.

But otherwise, I am your broken record to repeat how awesome it is, and awesome in it's correct term. This inspires "awe". May not like the later series, but this is glorious.
