This is a Pokemon TCG Card Binder commission for
you may have seen the first half here:
Two of the main Pokemon from this 'set' of cards are Ho-oh and Rayquaza and I chose to draw them performing 'signature' attacks; Ho-oh with Sacred fire and Rayquaza using Dragon Pulse (well, Rayquaza doesn't have a signature move)
The two sides are meant to be displayed back to back, and I kind of liked the idea of mirroring them.
I did struggle a bit with Rayquaza, he's just an awkward design, compared to Ho-oh.
The reason these two Pokemon were chosen over other 'main' Pokemon in the Legend
and Lost Link
card series is the correlation to the Chinese duality of the Phoenix and the Dragon.
