AFest 2012 piece numa 2! :D

This came out so much better than I had hoped. I dallied a little with cel shading -or at least something like it- and I found I like the stark lighting, even if I can't figure it out sometimes XD Man, those clouds. I liek me sum clouds.

It will be printed on 9"x11" paper and personally signed and matted for AFest Art Show.

Pokemon (C) Nintendo

XDDDDD Why does Zek always turn out so much sexier than Resh, even when Resh is CLEARLY the sexier of the pair? I don't know. IT BOGGLES MY MIND.

Umf. YOU SHALL LEARN, GRASSHOPPER. YOU SHALL LEARN.

My gawd... this is fantastic. I absolute LOVE the lightning coming from Zekrom's generator tail and how it glows such a pretty blue color on his feet. Excellent job with this, the atmosphere with the Thunderclouds is fantastic as well. Gotta love dem clouds.

Thinking it would have been cooler to somehow make them...connect?
I mean picture to picture. Like have the clouds slowly turning yellow and orange to match with Reshiram.
Or something

Are you going to make a Kyurem? : O

I considered that, but I just went MEH and did separate pics. And yes, I am doing a Kyurem :3

If Zekrom did exist in real life, fanatical people would probably worship it as a God or something lol.

Did that AFest Art show tell you to add this watermark?
Nice interpretation of Zekrom though. I like the head.

Again for the watermark: if someone really wants to steal your art, this watermark is rather senseless, unfortunately it is very easy to overpaint (even for someone with lower skills than you). If you are afraid of thievery, you could submit smaller images, because nearly noone is able to paint so much detail in small canvases. Then again I guess you want us to see much of the details. IMO this watermark is very annoying. Of course nearly everything I said is obsolete under the circumstances of public sales.

Another thing is that you want to print this. Don't get me wrong, I think the idea is awesome, but dark pictures are VERY hard to print, they often get even darker after that. In this case it COULD end in total darkness, except for the flashes and Zekrom's tail/eye, that would be not so cool. I hope you saved the file at least in CMYK mode. You could send the guys of AFest two versions. In one of them you increase the brightness of the whole picture and tell them why.

Good luck with that art show.
Please don't feel offended, I did not mean any harm.
I like this picture of Zekrom very much - perfect mix of simplicity and amount of detail and of course the perfect head shape.<3
No fave due to annoying watermark - I'm sorry

lol, I generally don't watermark my stuff, but since I AM going to be selling it as a print, I felt the need arose. I know dark pictures are hard to print, as I've done it before, and will likely toggle with values before matting it and bringing it to AFest. This is just the final produvt before I have to mess with it in PS XD

And don't worry; I ALWAYS keep the non-flattened picture as well as the finished png. This makes for easy editing :)

And thank you for your compliments and advice! I'm sorry the watermark ruined it enough for you to not leave a fave, but you commented, and that's good enough for me. :3

XD I always liked Reshiram more than Zek, but with this piece, I've really gotten to like him more. He turned out so well, and I actually look forward to the next piece I get to do with him :3
