Realistic Druddigon by Leashe Realistic Druddigon by Leashe
Initially made for changeyourprofilepicturetoapokémonmonth over on facebook, I just can't get enough of druddigon, he's just so bold!

I tried not to overwork it with detail, kept two of the limbs more out of focus than I normally do but I really enjoyed working on it on and off during finals week and the holidays.

you can see the initial sketch over on my facebook page!

Druddigon's wings aren't for flying. They're for absorbing solar energy to live. It's a heliophile pokemon, like Helioptile is.

This is awesome: you've made him look much more traditionally draconic than he is in game. That said, a lot of people underestimate Druddigon on account of his Base Stat Total being the lowest of all Dragons and his low Speed. But, two words: CHOICE SCARF.

Whenever people gripe about this Pokemon generation having bad designs, I show them this picture of Druddigon.

And then hit them in the face.

Ohmygosh this is amazing. The detail is not overworked at all, it looks fantastic. That was a great way to reinvent druddigon realistically, I love the face! ...and also I just love druddigon in general.
