Yamask speedpaint by Leashe Yamask speedpaint by Leashe
Couldn't sleep, so decided to scribble before I delve into my mountain of homework. Seriously, this little guy is the most disturbing pokémon ever.

You can see the process here on my tumblr!

(Shudders) I don't think I like these realistic ghost types!!!

Wow, I never knew that Pokémon would get this.... dark. A wandering soul that cries over everything that it lost in death, and carries around that mask constantly being reminded of it.

The only thing to make the Yamask even creepier is if it said it was someone you knew before who had died. Like wouldn't that be super awkward?

...Yamasks were cute for me...

Love how you made it smoky, instead of having it a definite form!
Nin10dohgirl Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2012
Not as disturbing as Hypno, or even the evolved form of Yamask...:fear:
RodolfoMushi Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
wow, speed paint...
billabong2011 Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2012
This is INCREDIBLE, easily the best rendition of Yamask I've ever seen. Honestly, it's probably one of my favorite pokemon renditions period. You made this pokemon come to life. Truly, wonderful work!

WOW! You made a cute Pokemon look evil. Eeeeevil.

i see nothing wrong with yamask. it doesn't really matter what Nintendo or gamefreak is making what type of design for pokemon, the games will be still fun. unless they make some stupid and weird looking pokemon(a snail maybe) then you can say 'wtf is this crap?'.

anyway job well done

...Am I the only one who thinks Yamask is cute? I mean, I understand if I'm one of few...this is the same girl who played "Silent Hill" at age 12 and ended up giggling more than screaming. I don't deny that it's creepy, I just want to know if anyone else finds it cute.

This is one hell of an awesome reinterpretation of YAMASK. Love your imagination :+fav:
Both feature of original shape and ghost type are appeared perfectly fantastic.

Cubone was the most disturbing Pokemon before this one because, where the hell does every Cubone manage to get the skulls of their mother? Do all the baby Cubone like, kill their mom & rip the skulls out as a baby or do the Marowhak commit suicide? Wow, went off topic. Anyways, yeah, this is a depressing & disturbing Pokemon. I can't imagine how much pain it feels every time it has a flashback of it being human.
NiftyNautilus Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2011  Student Traditional Artist
No. Like an octopus, a Marowak dies after its babies are born. After it decays, the cubone takes the skull. Yamasks are depressing, but please don't faint them. They just need some lovin'.
SunHeart101 Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well actually, the marowak starves to death. It has to guard the egg until it hatches and if it leaves, then another pokemon will eat the egg. But the mom cant get up to find food so it starves to death. i think its sad too...
KooboriSapphire Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2011  Student General Artist
Oh c'mon, like she couldn't take the egg with her or place it in a spot where food is plentiful. Unless, that depends on what they eat.
SunHeart101 Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
They have to hunt... And, the eggs are too heavy.
eMATTgination Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2011
This is a great interpretation of one of the strangest pokemon.
JemDragon Featured By Owner May 16, 2011  Student General Artist
I actually think cubone has a more depressing pokedex entry, unless they changed it.
"It wears the skull of its deceased mother. Its cries echo inside the skull and come out as a sad melody. "

Anyways, I love your rendition of yamask. =] It does show how a pokemon whose is most likely just as depressed as cubone should look.
Leashe Featured By Owner May 16, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
I don't know, being a human and then somehow transformed into a pokemon, forced to fight, but at the same time remember your past life? They are both pretty sad.
Xaidurk Featured By Owner May 12, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Yamask has one of the most grotesque, disturbing, depressing 'dex entries any of the games have. A pokemon that used to be a human, and now lives its life waiting for someone to capture it to force it to battle? What a "life." And let's not forget that they cry when they look at their masks and remember their pasts. Anyway, my point is that you captured all of that in this piece. I really love the eyes--they look incredibly eerie.
