Raikou by sanguisGelidus Raikou by sanguisGelidus
... unleasher of nature's powers...

---

The last one of my "How-would-the-dog-trio-would-look-in-reality-series".. xD These ones were so fun to draw, somehow it was really relaxing! :D I drew Raikou as a tiger.. :) I think this is my favourite one! :D

Entei:



Suicune:



Drawn in PS CS4 with Hanvon graphic tablet, about 10 hours

I hope you like it! :la:

-- And as always, favs and comments are highly appreciated!! :D :heart: --

I love it!
Vision
This piece reflects Raikou very well. I think it strongly shows the idea of Raikou. It is an electric type, so the lightning goes very well. 5 out of 5, good work.
Originality
Well, you don't own raikou. But you gave a good background that's original, so 3 out of 5. :)
Technique
Lots of people try to make pokemon look real, and most fail. But you, my sir, mastered. Its like you threw a master ball at good art techniques. Dude, I want to be as good as you. :) Also, I like how you put little rain drops and lightning, so 5 out of 5, saying that you made the fur look SO real, I can't believe it!
Impact
In the faq, it says: "Does the artwork resonate with you or evoke strong emotions? Does it make you think? Does it blow your mind? "
Well, it does give me emotions. I love it! I'm in love with your art! It does make me think, like, "How does he do this?" And yes, it does blow my mind. :) 4 1/2 out of 5.

Final Words
You are awesome. Keep up the good work. Next, I would like to see the legendary birds. I think you could really do a good job picturing them real. I hope you continue with your art and never stop. :)

You know, I always found it so odd that Raikou, Suicune, and Entei were called the "dog trio." I never saw them as dogs. Suicune I saw as a wolf, yes, and wolves are one of my favorite animals, but Raikou was a tiger to me, and Entei was a lion. I think you envisioned these three pieces perfectly, and I have to say Raikou has always been my favorite out of the trio.

Originally when the Pokemon movies were made, each of the three was supposed to get their own movie. The third movie was about Entei, the fourth about Suicune, and the fifth /was/ supposed to be about Raikou, and I remember seeing the commercials and I was so excited because he was my favorite. But at the last minute the fifth movie was changed, and Raikou never got his own movie. I was disappointed and rather frustrated with Nintendo for changing it and I still believe this beautiful and majestic tiger deserves his own movie.

Raikou didn't get a movie right? But I know for a fact Entei did, and Suicune had a game, maybe a movie, don't remember. Raikou is awesome and needs moar love!

Raikou did not get a movie itself but did appear in the one with Zorua and Zoroark (along with the other two, as well as getting a few episodes for itself dont ask which part of the series though cuz I have no clue ^^;). Suicune appeared in the movie with Celebi. And as you said, Entei did get it's own movie.

Yeah, that's it. I think Raikou had an hour long special called The Legend of Thunder. I think Mewtwo Returns was like that too...but it may have been a full movie.

I actually stopped watching the anime after Kanto. Picked up the first five episodes of BW. And old episodes are on at dinner, and I don't know when new episodes are on. So I can't even follow it. The games are awesome though...and my favorites are Togepi and Gardevoir.

I don't watch the anime either mostly cuz it's a repeat of the same storyline, just change of pokemon, people, and places. ^^;
I'd rather just watch the movies. I do like the games though I haven't been able to play anything after emerald *cry*

All you need is Platinum, either Black or White, and either Black or White 2. But yeah. Don't let people tell you otherwise, gens 4 and 5 are awesome! But then again, it's a Pokemon game, so yeah, it's awesome!

Excellent Raikou rendition...The best I've seen so far as the standards are pretty high here...This is the renditional artwork to beat for all those Raikou drawings out there and so far, you're the champion at the top of the mountain...Monumental job you did here, catching Raikou in his natural habitat in the thunderclouds...So electric and exciting, it's just way too much...Nice linework and coloring of his body, so real it crazy like you can touch him (though that be a very bad idea!)...Dangerously cool pose and glare, looks like a pokemon you don't wanna get on the wrong side of...And lasty love the dramatic thunder and lighting background that brings this Raikou rendition more to life...The personification of exhilaration...Feels great to see this...Marvelous job!

Even though Entei is my favorite of the three Barky Dog Lions (that's what my girlfriend and I call them, don't know why) I like this Raikou interpretation best. The colors you used- the blue light glowing on what is supposed to be bright yellow fur- make is look SO mystical. Amazing job :D
