Lost Linkby technofortomcats

Fan Art / Digital Art / Painting & Airbrushing / Games©2011-2015 technofortomcats
This is a Pokemon TCG Card Binder commission for :iconcallyfin:
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.


As this is a commission, you may not edit or use this artwork for your own gallery/website/blog. Please respect the artist's wishes.

Thank you.

Looks real good, but where's lugia? Lugia is based off of Ryujin( Japanese dragon god of the sea). 

Either way looks good and Fave too :)

Commissioner didn't ask for Lugia so Lugia was not included.

It's so pretty! Pixeling this, especially the Rayquaza half, seems like it would be a challenge. I wish I could practice pixeling with this piece of art, but I will respect the artist's wishes and just enjoy looking at it.

I really like how the clouds blend into each other.

I have noticed the tendency of Pokemon to not make much in the way of sense, especially the in the later series ;) Rayquaza is a bit of an awkward design, those tiny little legs! Kinda T-Rexish. For a struggle I think you did a great job. I'm a bit curious about Ho-oh's positioning, my brain reckons the feathers should be pointing upwards and backwards as it looks like it's diving rather than hovering. Having not seen official pictures of the thing (just your renditions) I wouldn't have a clue how its anatomy affects it :)

Love the duality. Very well illustrated.

You say you struggled with Rayquaza, but I think he looks better than Ho-oh. The figure 8 shape is nice.

I always thought it was awkward how both were supposed to be master/guardian of the sky. Now it seems that we have a battle for supremacy.

I think the idea is that Rayquaza is the creator of the sky, (atmosphere, in logical terms. Because it flies above the ozone layer, so, yeah....) and Ho-oh is its protector.
