Wierd that you cant get him how you like, cos I think this is my favourite drawing of all three of them.
Though articuno's pose was good.
Zapdos's expression was good.
And Moltres's anatomy is good.

Huh I like them all for different things. Good going! I hope you sell lots :)

This is epic! You have a gift for pokemon drawing.

I had another epic dream involving you/ your characters. It sorta went like this: Shale and Blank were fighting with lightsabers.
Shale: You monster! You killed my brother!
Blank: You fool... I AM your brother...
Shale:... Well, I knew that, I just wanted it to be dramatic and stuff...

Moltres looks okay, but I really dislike it because it looks like a turkey or a vulture. :P

IDK why I hate them, I like Condors (even though they're a type of Vulture)

you should'nt hate them
hate is a strong word...

Vultures are extremly important birds to the ecosystem and they are rather fun to handle as a 'bird of prey (if you can call them that)


eh i still love them :x

Great job!

the dogs aren't dogs, they're actually cats....how is Raikou a dog when it's striped like a tiger and has the fangs of a saber tooth?

:iconmechanicalmasochist:
mechanicalmasochist Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
people call them the ledgendary dogs its just a thing
though don't think they are all cats I axctually think they are a mix of both
because it goes like this:

raikou, is a sabre toothed tiger yes
entei is actually based on the mythical lion dog/fu dog or
Komainu(it has many names)[link]
these are carved statues found in japan that resemble a lion and a common thing to see and sacred places as it is a guardian.
suicune I do believe is a wolf but however it is based of a kirin (as a kirin runs across water it purifies it)
but in nthe latest promotion for hg/ss
suicune is seen throwing its head back in a howling gesture after it leaps forward. not to mention its longer muzzle and other attributes.
so I believe it goes:
cat/ cat-dog/ dog

and I think that makes a lovley set :3

but pokemon has a lot of mythology behind it I mean don't get be started on the eevee family XD
for one umbreon is based on a rabbit and no one seems to know that XD

ah yes I know who that is

I knew about the rabbit in the moon (from okami)

but it did help reading the wiki
I actually really like umbreon being a rabbit though its more unique XD
