I love doing Pokemon art, especially of Arceus (my favourite!)
Please read the description!
They requested a dark-plate equipped Arceus (on the left) facing off a ghost-plate equipped Arceus (on the right) I decided on a very "rune/forces of evil" feeling for the background and the plate in the center was inspired by celtic knots and greek pottery.
The designs of the Arceus are based on this drawing here
Instead of the traditional colour change when Arceus uses Multi-type, I designed different appearences based on mythology and inspired by Ookami
. For example, the purple Arceus is equipped with a ghost-type plate. So his mandala around his tummy is transformed into a Torii gate and he has ofuda (those paper slips) plastered on him. The grey Arceus is equipped with a dark-type plate so his mandala is transformed into a hideous monster while his rear end has rotted away to bone.
