I thought I should turn my Lapras painting into a Pokedex-entry, too, to make it all more consistent! ^^ Hope you like it! (And now you know, why I drew my Lapras with whiskers and antennae! + I added the ice type, that was requested ^^)
-- Favs, comments and critiques are highly appreciated! --
I really enjoy this piece. The body design is suited for the deap lake/deep ocean habitat, and the jagged rock formations on the shell also look like ice, and add to that effect. I especially love the gentle-giant aura I get from the Lapras itself and feel reassured by the description, lol. The antennae and small eye combination was creative and well thought out. I appreciate how it has deep sea turtle characteristics about it in the picture that are also described in the additional info. The description displays a wide vocabulary, which is something nice to see as well. I like how everything in the picture is backed by the description. The smaller creatures that accompany the image of the Lapras help describe the enormity of it and give me a good picture of its size compared to other creatures. I appreciate that they are Mantines and the other Pokémon's name escapes me, who are also designed after deep-sea creatures; it helps display the habitat. The shadows are well rendered; as if it's caught in a ray of sunlight reflecting into the ocean. My only concern is the background; it's a bit bland compared to the majesty of the creature in the foreground. Maybe a background of its main habitat/area to show where it lives. Other than that, I really, really love this piece. You did a magnificent job
The way it shows a form of realism makes me think that it is possible to find Lapras out in the depths of the sea where the colossal squid live. I just love the detail on the shell and face. The way the mouth slightly opens with the whiskers kind of moving back from the face reminds me of a very, very strong but kind grandmother who loves you so much and gives you advice when you ask for it. The only thing is that the background could have had a bit more detail depicting the environment, otherwise, it's awesome
I think you have the most pleasant realistic Pokemon- not only are they amazingly drawn, but also, you don't draw them in a grotesque manner, like how most people draw realistic Pokemon. It's nice breath of fresh air! Stunning work!
Es wundert mich das Lapras keine Vor-Entwicklung hat. Ich mein, es sieht aus wie ein entwickeltes Pokemon oder nicht? Am ansprechendsten finde ich die ganzen Details auf dem Panzer mit den Anemonen, Korallen etc., das wirkt sehr natürlich Ich weiß nicht wieso, aber das Mantax in der Ecke macht mir irgendwie Angst O.o Die Fühler erinnern mich an eine Art Monster von dem ich mal üble Alpträume hatte. Ich komme aber nicht mehr drauf, was für eins das war. Mal ne Frage, hättest du evt. ein paar Tipps für mich zum Thema Felsen malen? ^^° *sich die Stacheln am Panzer beguck*
