HEAD OVER TO MY TUMBLR FOR SKECTHES AND WIPS AND SUCH
www.kganart.tumblr.com

Time: 8-9 Hours
Program(s) Used: Photoshop CS5
Reference(s): Some of `arvalis's pokemon art. FLygon and VIbrava Pics.
Copyright:Flygon © Nintendo, Game Freak, Pokemon, Ken Sugimori
Artwork © Me
Inspiration: Arvalis

Flygon has always been one of my favorites. This was challenging. This is the first time I've done anything like this before. You all know, RJ Palmer correct?(:iconarvalis:) Well, if you don't you are missing out on some amazing artwork. He's provided me with some inspiration and got me to get creative. This is a tribute to his pokemon artwork, and I hope you guys like it. This will probably be my only one... (update: it's not, I also did a Glalie one)

THOUGHTS BEHING THE PIECE:
- I felt when most people try to make Flygon realistic, they either didn't know about or forget that he's also based on antlions and/or dragonflies. They go all out dragon on him/her. I really wanted to incorporate a lot of adult antlion features into this realistic take.

damn I hate this arvalis guy I made several comments on the gengar image in an attempt to let him know that they didn't look like ghastly haunter and gengar but he didn't listen and instead blocked me.

Flygon is my favorites to, but I'm not sure if I would want one in real life. I have a thing about bugs and he is quite desterbing. Don't get me wrong, it's still amazing work!

I can only imagine the ridiculous awesomeness if you were to create a realistic-looking Nuzlocke comic... I'm drooling just thinking about it, and I'd honestly pay to see something like that.

This is an awesome take on Flygon. Since everyone really does make it completely dragon, this is a really unique and believable approach. :D

this is really believable.

The evolutionary line is based on an antlion and dragonfly

So the insectoid/dragon has a good look and feel behind it

It looks fantastic! And I like your version of it much more than the usual pictures of realistic Flygons (I share your opinion that they should look more like an antlion or a dragonfly).
Anyway, your drawing skills are amazing! Coloration and anatomy look awesome, and...You're only fifteen?! o_O Oh my...I feel so untalented now (but I know it's probably more hard work than only talent). xD
