:Dark Wind: Shiftry by endless-whispers :Dark Wind: Shiftry by endless-whispers
Heh, this picture took me 3 weeks to complete...but only because I had a hundred and one distractions. (I even completed another deviation in between - my PorygonZ :D)

Shiftry has got to be one of the most evil-looking Pokemon designed yet...I didn't like Nuzleaf or Seedot's design (too simple) but Shiftry nails it as the Wicked Pokemon. I came up with 3 different poses for Shiftry before coming up with this pose, then sketched this pose 4 more times before it actually looked correct - I find Shiftry very difficult to draw ^^;.

About the colouring...I've never used so many dark colours for my drawings, so excuse me if my shading is off...Also, this is my first time trying to illustrate proper trees...I used the leaf brush I downloaded from here.


Shiftry is a copyright of Nintendo

...heavy hitter on my white team/y team. I wish it had a mega form. (for both sexes anyway. many people reffer it as "he". It could be male or female soni usually go with "it". *so i) Nice job though. youre way better than me.

That is just a great way to show off Shiftry I think! XP

The shadowing, the windness, all that good stuff! XP

So is this actually a TCG pic, re-done by you? Because I swear I've seen this before...
I like it though. It may had looked a little better if you had used some other color than black on the outlines.

Wonderful :) The concept is perfect for it's peronalyity/looks and it really does look official.
Crits: Is it suposed to be day or night? If its night; What if you tried zooming in more (or putting more emphisis(Sp? XD)) on the eyes and silver-hair? If you darkened out the underside of his belly and legs and ars and such almost to the point of total black in those areas... Think of how much it would make its manic eyes stand out... Then again, it is suposed to be fit for a pokemon card =d

You definitely nailed Shiftry's malicious look in this one, your work is much better than even the official art

It reminds of the Tengu dude in DOA2 (The pose I mean; Shiftry just naturally reminds me of him :p)
