Legendary Birds by Exileden Legendary Birds by Exileden
Now it's time for classic Legendary Trio! Zapdos, Articuno and Moltres!
Why pokemon is going downhill? In my opinion, its not about pokemon designs or so... just because is ALL TIME ALWAYS SAME. Changes are only new pokemons, little changes with worlds and characters looking- storyline, characters and mechanics are ALWAYS same. It never changes, bores us and thats why we look at new pokemons as worse because nothing suprises us anymore with pokemons
Discuss!

Awesome! although I never liked Zapdos wings not that you drew it wrong it's just I wouldn't know how to draw it where it would look like it could actually fly.

How are you getting these paper textures? Is it watercolor?

Amazing work =D the birds were always my favorite trio! It is quite upsetting to see the new pokemon... I can't even look at the diamond and pearl ones because the art isn't even as good as it used to be!

I agree! Nintendo really offer to add in some new game mechanics, not just some different gimmicks like they do with Legend of Zelda (Which is probably why it's going slightly downhill too). They could change the way things work in the Pokemon universe- maybe change it so that you play as a Pokemon, avoiding trainers and cooperating with other Pokemon, though not like the Mystery Dungeon games.
By the way, great pic! ^^

I Can Handle Up To Silver, But After That, They`re All So Stupid And Pointless! ; A ;

Even Some Of The Silver Version Pokemon Are Silly. But The New Ones Are Getting Totally Out Of Hand!

I don't like the new designs. they used to be more arround "mythic animal/element" mix (obviously with it's excepcions: mr.mime, voltorb and stuff). but now you just get a bunch of alien looking things that are mostly plain boring or just retarded looking, of course, just in my opinion...

I'd love to see these colored in your usual style. I think they (particularly Moltres) would make great Pokemon LEGEND artwork (TCG).

i must agree with you about the Pokemon games. the last ones i got were Pokemon fore red and leaf green (technically people bought them for me). i haven't played pearl, diamond and platinum. i heard they're a waste of money and time.

I agree, I always hate how people sit there and bash the designs. :hmm: And to me, it looks a little hypocritical of them because I know they would hate for others to bash the designs they make up...
Anyway, very lovely... I love Articuno the most. ^_^

I kinda agree with you're Pokemon point.
It is really... okay. It is all the same.
But I guess they tried to fix it with Mystery Dungeon or whatever.

This is why I still play my ORIGINAL Gold Version. Not HeartGold, but the actual Gameboy Color cartridge :3 I honestly don't think I could get used to playing Pokemon any other way :)
