Yveltal and Xerneas by finiens Yveltal and Xerneas by finiens
I wanted to draw these two since they were revealed. I made a few sketches, but that was about it. January I finally started with this painting. After finishing the (pretty messy) lineart

- I got into an artblock
- started my free art campaign
- had to draw a ton of art trades and contest entries (not that I mind, really <3)

Well... in the meantime I didn´t really like the lineart anymore, but I still wanted to complete it. Just because. That´s the reason it´s not in my new, prefered cell shading style. And that it doesn´t have a real background. Meeeeh.:/
*goes working on art trades again*

I like all the paintings you have selected and the blending from one theme into the next is really smooth. If I was on youtube I´d definitely +fav it.

I love the realistic stylization you did with these designs, and I think this looks pretty cool even without very much of a background. To me, the dynamism in the poses and angle make up for it.

Is there any chance I could get your permission to use this in a remix video I'm working on of all the main legendary battle themes? I've been looking around for some really high-quality artwork to go along with my the X/Y section of the medley, and I would be incredibly grateful if I could use this. Of course, you would be given full credit for it, and a link back to this image would be provided in the video's description.

I´m glad you like it. A lot of people said they don´t mind the background, so I don´t mind it as much anymore, too.XD

Yes, you may use my painting. My only condition would have been the link back to the original, but you covered that already.^^

Thanks so much, it'll help out a lot. I'm sending a link to the video to all the artists who are letting me use their work for it once the whole thing is done.

I´m glad you like my interpretation of these two. The designs of the new pokémon are so pretty and fun to draw, especially the legendaries. Xerneas is so majestic and has beautiful colours, while Yveltal is one of the most intriguing flying types ever.

If you had Yveltal at his real size compared to a deer like Xerneas, Xerneas would win in a heartbeat.

Naah, I´m not sure about that. The andean condor has a wingspan of 3,2m/10,5ft and is told to hunt even llamas and alpacas. If it catches a deer of guard, so it can´t use it´s antlers, the bird might win.

Hehee :meow: but in the picture the deer has its hooves up at it, so it's not off guard. And from what we know so far, it's likely to be based off of a quetzal due to its name.

Well, it could be a quetzal. To me it looks more like a condor, but you might be right. Logic isn´t one of the pokémon creators strong sides.XD

Or electricity working on birds. The three legendary dogs actually being based on cats. Diglett being able to learn arial ace.

Seriously, its like what the heck? Or water and air being not very effective on steel when those are the two things that make it rust.

I get that they have to balance the types, but it wouldn´t hurt to make it a bit more logical. By the way, I´m glad they created a new type to counter dragons. These guys were way to strong.

As always I had no idea what to do with the bg once I´d finished the sketch. This light from above and the blurry yellows/greens seemed like a fast and easy way to get something interesting.
