:Rise with Me: Shedinja by endless-whispers :Rise with Me: Shedinja by endless-whispers
Hehe, it's a dead Pokemon!...which is what I will be anyway if my exam grades don't pick up soon ^^;.

Anyways, I worked on this picture for about a whole week...Colouring the Shedinja took a day, but I took another 6 days thinking of a background for this pic. Shedinja is technically in a forest, with spirit flames rising up with it, though it may look like a church instead - your interpretation. Bits and pieces of its wings are crumbling away, but Shedinja looks very peaceful (actually, Shedinja doesn't really have a way of expressing itself...) A combination of brown, green and blue (and also my first time actually using the dodge tool) - I'm pretty pleased with how this picture turned out in the end.

You can check out my older illustration of Shedinja in my Scraps gallery as well :).

So haunting and mystical at the same time! Nicely done!

This is really nicely done, and the coloring looks great!
I actually got a Nincada and leveled it just to get a Shedinja, I didn't care at all about Ninjask. XD

I can say that your shedinja is one of the best art I've found about him. Very good work, especially with the colours that are perfect.
I want to ask if you would like that I use this and some other of your art (you are very good at this, my favourite is your chinchou! ) to make some of my cards.
Of course I would give you the credit for the picture!
If you are not interested or you simply don't want that your work is used in such a way I won't lay a finger on any of your pictures! Please, continue to do these beautiful arts, good work!

I love this thing, sadly, I was never able to use it properly. EVERY TIME I battled against someone, they always had a way to rid of him. Lovely job on your coloring, & that background looks fantastic.
KennethSloane Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
you should try a lum berry or focas sash would that help?

Awesome. I like Shedinja, ans this effect of dissipation, or 'evanescence'...
But it's a little sad.

Awwwh, a current pokemon obsession. This pokemon amazes me and he is so different. I love using this guy against my friends, they are total pokenerds but never expected wonder guard <3 tis a shame however that you cant fool them twice.

The way you drew him, the colouring, background everything just complements shedinja perfectly. Great work!
RoxleyHusky Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist

Ok, I'm feeling compelled to withdraw my saying about porygon z, because this thing owns just as much! I love the deteriorating wings! As for the background, I didn't really think it really was in any place in particular. Just a random background.

Though those particles of light around it look a bit like sperm... little something to chuckle about.
pikachuIchooseu Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2008
great picture!
the background makes me think of a Night Elf Forest from Warcraft III, full of Whisps :)
Glacideas Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2008
The background is absolutely stunning. The wings are well done as well. I just adore this work.
My favorite, by far, of all of your pieces. ;_;
But your entire gallery is so wonderful~ :heart: :+devwatch:

Even though the lighting isn't reflected on Shedinja, it still looks like it belongs perfectly in this surreal scene. The perspective and crumbling wings are amazing too!

Interesting how an empty shell filled with some spirit or something is one of the best Pokémon.

So, you would've been a Shedinja if you got bad grades? o_o

Alrighty then... Good pic though!

anodiamond Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2006
Celestial Shedinja for the win.

Looks quite nice..I'm really digging the perspective on this one, although [its] right wing should be tilted outwards a bit more. Nice job!

The background is hypnotizing....woah....
Wakki Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2006
I love this picture! :heart:

The colours are amazing! good work ^-^
