Zapdos v.2 by Xous54 Zapdos v.2 by Xous54
My artwork for Zapdos, the second version (normal and shiny colorations). My favorite of the Legendary Birds, it was hard for me to come up with a pose that I liked. I'm pleased with how this turned out, however.

If you wish to use this artwork, all I ask is that you credit me for it - no need to get my permission to use it. Thanks.

Zapdos was my Legendary Bird Guardian, which I become a Guardian Trainer. All time favorite Legendary bird...! Prepare for super Thunder Power!! :D

I don't plan on it. The only reason I went back and started drawing the Legendary Birds again is because I've been meaning to make Moltres art for quite some time, and my old artwork for the other two looked pretty bad and needed updated versions.

Out of curiosity, what do you think of the design change between two- and three-toed Zapdos? I know, it hasn't had two toes since Stadium 2 at the latest, but... I always thought that was cooler =P

Xous54 Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2012  Student General Artist
I like both equally. The number of toes it has doesn't really matter much to me, as long as it's not something ridiculous. xD

Fantastic! Zapdos is one of if not m favorite pokemon! However, I think that it's right foot should have been raised as well.

All we need is another Moltres! When you're finished, I feel as if I need to go through and make full art cards for these pieces of artwork.

Moltres is sketched and ready to be outlined / colored in. (I actually had it sketched before Zapdos, but I finished Zapdos first.)

I was Wonder Which One of the Legendary Beasts is your Favorite

:iconxous54:
Xous54 Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2012  Student General Artist
I think Raikou is my favorite Beast, but lately I've found myself liking Suicune a lot... So it's probably a tie between the two.
