Lugia by LindseyWArt Lugia by LindseyWArt
Guess who!

I make it too easy

My favorite legendary Pokemon, ever, and made more like a dragon than a bird.

This started a few nights ago as a head sketch and then I decided to go full scale. I struggled with it a lot, but that was because there was no plan involved; No thumbnail, no outline, I just jumped in and painted.

More spontaneous creation!

Anyways, I like to thank you all for looking, as always, and I hope you all enjoy!

EDIT: Wow, wow, wow. I finally got a DD! Thank you =animalartist16 for the suggestion and ^kasumichan2003 for the feature! And thank you everyone else for all the compliments and favorites. Love you all! :heart:

Daily Deviation

Given 2011-12-18
Lugia by *SephirothsHeart ( Suggested by animalartist16 and Featured by alexandrasalas )
:iconshadows260:
An incredible personal rendition of a figure that is or has been a part of so many lives, SephirothsHeart's 'Lugia' is a dark and powerful alteration of the series' original art. The sculpting and detailing of the head as compared to the lack of such measures on the rest of the body serve only to accent and draw attention to the efforts but into creating and personalizing the creature, and the skillfully crafted water effects truly represent the explosion of power Lugia is meant to represent.

Any singular part of this work could be separated from the rest and stand strong on its own, but together they form a wonderful and breathtaking image that wow's those who were never a fan of the series and brings a smile to the faces of those who were or are.

Aah! I love this! I always pictured him as less of a bird and more of just straight up monster. He looks very humanoid. Is that on purpose?

I can see that. It wasn't intentional but I wasn't very good at animal anatomy back then so human anatomy was what I referenced. That could be why he looks a little humanoid.

Anyways, thanks a lot!

Intentional or not, it looks fantastic! It's rather interesting to think of Pokemon being more human than they're designed to be...

When I think about it a lot of them have a lot of them do have human characteristics, like a lot of them walk on two feet and have two arms. Not a lot of animals do that.

Very true! It's fun to imagine Pokemon as being the result of some sort of strange mutation or gene experiment. Yet, it happened so long ago, the present populace don't  know how they came to exist and much research is needed to understand them.

Gawd, this picture never ceases to amaze me. The way you drew Lugia here is just... powerful. It actually evokes a sense of raw, unbreakable power from it as Lugia crashes through the water. The way you drew the water for that mater as well is great. Everything is just... too good for words here.
