Dark Spiritsby technofortomcats

This was a commission for :icontwistedscissors:!

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.

ojalá los de pokemon sacaran mas a arceus en el anime y en las pelis!! yo soy fan de arceus y muchos dicen que no tiene historia... ¿este dibujo no presenta BASTANTE historia de arceus? molan los modelos y se pueden usar tanto en juegos como en pelis, las pelis asi con estos modelos SERIAN BUENISIMAS y con un guion rico :D MAS AUN!
ME ENCANTA! enserio... ¿algun dia podre dibujar como tú asi con estos colores?
PD: creo que no dibujo mal a arceus y a ningun otro XD pero no tengo tablet D: XD

Arceus, the finger-legged Pokemon XD Wonder if the dark plated one feels awkward with only bones out back. Like the themed rings (that aren't ring-like anymore obviously :)).

Wow, I like the use of color here! The contrast between the warms of the symbol in the center to the cools of the rest of the piece is wonderfully done.

I love the way you gave the different types details to go with the change! I understand the games can't really do much with that but I love how you did it.
