A piece I made in anticipation for Pokémon X and Y. With less than two weeks left to go I wanted to create something with the games' mascots. The idea for the image came to me out of nowhere two nights ago and I just had to finish it. Originally this piece was going to be a bit smaller and only feature Xerneas, but I extended the image on the left and bottom to include more of the water, stone, sky, and mountains - a choice I was really glad I made. I'm really pleased with how this turned out. It's probably one of my favorite pieces of art I've made in a while. Took more than 7 hours, but it was worth it.
So, for those of you who are getting the games, enjoy X and Y!
