:Haunting your Dreams: Darkrai by endless-whispers :Haunting your Dreams: Darkrai by endless-whispers
It's been a while since I posted any Pokemon art...

This is not really an original idea - I referenced a card from Magic: The Gathering TCG for the colours and concept. (Just in case you are curious, the card is Shadow of Doubt by Greg Staples.)

Just a short bit about the concept: Darkrai is supposed to be the incarnation of nightmares (correct me if I'm wrong), so this pic depicts it sending out (or being formed from) nightmares. So I skipped its lower-half 'skirt' to show the swirl of nightmares.

Anyways, Darkrai is one of my favourite new Legendary Pokemon (other than Sheimi, Giratina and Fione). It's looks pretty neat for a Dark type, although by its nightmarish design, I swear it should be a Ghost type as well - but that would make it way too strong ^^;. Seriously though, isn't there a Legendary overkill in DP? I have a feeling Nintendo creates more Legendaries just to continue making movies - after all, they've already stuffed Dialga, Palkia AND Darkrai in the next one...

Oh yeah, this pic is wallpaper-sized (really, it's a coincidence :D), so you can download it to your desktop. Just don't steal it!

here is your picture on a different website:…
I remember how I decorated this picture with snowflakes for christmas... but don't worry I didn't uploaded it anywhere because it really looks dumb and I made it just for fun xD I really love the atmosphere of the picture. It is in a dark street and then the shadows become alive and you see the figure of a darkrai..
with the legendaries: I don't mind if there are many movies with legendaries as long they are cool xD .. and make me cry... I cried at the scene with the sunset and the memories of darkrai during the movie... Then Darkrai appeared as a shadow I couldn't stop thinking "oh my gosh so cool!! oh my gosh so cool!! *__*"

Thanks :) I like how Darkrai has different personalities in both the games and movies. It's one of the more multi-dimensional legendaries IMO.

Dude, this is awesome! :D Darkrai is up there with Pokemon like Mewtwo for me, and you captured his personality perfectly!
Just his back-story and his appearance is what attracts me to him; even the girl in Black2/White2 that was killed after being in Darkrai's nightmares was something that shows he's one of the truly evil Pokemon.
Very nice job! :D

Darkrai fanart inspired by Shadow of Doubt....
I wonder how it would look like if it was inspired on Death's Shadow instead.
zafara711 Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2012
Darkrai is one of my faves and remindes me of Garrus from mass effect for some reason.

Hello, your work has been stolen. [link]

I've reported it, but I thought you should know anyways ;)
endless-whispers Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2012
Thanks for the alert! What's funny is that the user is trying to pass it off as a traditional media illustration, and people are actually believing him :(

You're going to have to throw me in an industry-sized Pokémon Center splashed with guilt, regret, and blood to scare me.

hi! love this! i used it for a local trading card game tournament poster, as a background. :) i already credited you in the poster (source, your username and deviantart). it is a local non official tournament (we are just a few players, like 8 or 10 people, but we like to do posters and make stuff look like the official ones). i hope it is ok for you! :D thanks

Hey, I'd put like your signature on this or wouldn't want it to get stolen again... I feel really sorry for you. I hope people realize they need to get their own dang talents and draw their own art and I hope this all gets settled soon!!
