Xerneas LEGEND by Xous54 Xerneas LEGEND by Xous54

A card I made for PokéBeach's December Create-A-Card contest. Had to upload it here because I needed the image url and because of its size I didn't want to host it on an image hosting site like Photobucket. Anyway, here's the information about it:

 

With Geomancy being its signature move, I just had to include it. The artwork was inspired by it, after all. Damage output and Energy cost for Eternal Radiance was ultimately determined by looking at Raikou & Suicune LEGEND's Aurora Gain - there you do 50 damage and heal 50 HP for 1 Water and 2 Colorless with no drawback, so I upped the damage and added some drawback if you want HP back.

On the attack having two effects rather than 1: Since this is a LEGEND card I wanted some lasting power, and I wanted it to be powerful. But with only enough room for two things (attacks, powers, and/or bodies) and by making its power a one-time thing, I had to figure out a way to make the card able to adjust to its current situation with only 1 attack. Originally it was a coin flip to determine the effect of the attack, but I decided that was too risky for the player if he/she needed one effect over the other. Unfortunately doing this sacrifices a lot of card space, but I did it anyway.

Weakness of Metal for obvious reasons, Resistance of Dragon because that should be a staple for Fairy-Types, and Retreat Cost of 1 because if Entei & Raikou LEGEND can retreat for free and Lugia LEGEND retreats for 1, I figured this thing shouldn't be any higher than 1.

From a visual standpoint, I decided to go with water effects because it works so well with the focus on light - allows for some really pretty effects. Plants/leaves would have been another route, but in the end I just liked what I was able to do with the water. Plus the whole water = life aspect.

Original blank by Cascadegonpory; edited using the Fairy texture made by CMP and holosheet by Nekoban Ryo, as well as making a few edits (texture, shape) of my own. Credit for the water splash effects goes to eross-666, Moonglowlilly, and starlaa1.

 

I do have ideas for a Yveltal LEGEND card, but whether I get around to it or not is something I'm not sure about. It's going to depend on the amount of time I have to work on it.

Enjoy.

believe it or not, i thought this was a real card when i stumbled upon it somewhere else. you can very, very, very easily pass this off as a real pokemon card ^ ^ you have everything down pretty much perfectly. it's a small detail, but i like how you just put "illus. xous" without the numbers. i think that makes it more official, but that is just me. 
you had so many good ideas for this card, they all go very, very well together :>

Unfortunately the background was made at its current size so I could't release a larger version of the artwork without re-working the background (which I don't have time to do right now).

 

The Xerneas itself is massive, but I don't want to post it without a background.

Yeah... I understand even if this 'epic' drawing style suits Xerneas really well and it's just perfect for a Legend !
