Zekrom v.3 by Xous54 Zekrom v.3 by Xous54
My artwork for Zekrom, the third version. When trying to decide on a pose, I remembered when Zekrom was first revealed people (myself included) likened its design to a "fallen angel." So, in this piece I wanted to draw it in mid-flight, as though it's descending from the heavens. In contrast, Reshiram v.3's pose is supposed to represent an angel looking down from the heavens.

Anyway, I'm pleased with how this turned out. This will probably be the last Zekrom I draw for a while, just like Reshiram v.3 is the last Reshiram I'll draw for a while.

Please don't use any of my artwork, including this piece, without my permission. If you wish to contact me about using my work, a Note is the best way to do it. Thank you.

Enjoy.

I don't get why did they made shiny versions of Zekrom and Reshiram if you cannot capture them in their shiny appearances.

So the game wouldn't crash when someone (like me) encountered one with the shiny hack.

It won't crash, I have both shiny Zekrom and Reshiram, but I don't use them. I was thinking their shiny versions would have been given out through an event, but it never happened.

So at the moment, action replay is the only way I know to get their shiny forms, but since you still can't catch them normally in their shiny forms, the question remains, why did they make them?

I meant that they programmed the shiny palettes in so the game wouldn't crash if the game was hacked to make all encounters shiny, and the player encountered Zekrom/Reshiram. if they didn't put the shiny palettes in, a shiny Zekrom/Reshiram may have been invisible, if the game didn't crash trying to find nonexistent data.

Sheesh I KNOW its green because he's shiny but, I'm asking why would the designers make it or why is it green when... Nevermind.

Great stuff! One of your greatest features in your art is your shading, and that really stands out here!

Do you use a lineart tool for your lineart? Or do you just make those line with the pen tool?

The outline is originally a sketch made in pencil that gets re-outlined in Very Fine Point Sharpie. After the sketch is scanned in, I use the Threshold tool to make the outline pure black and the background pure white.

If there are any fixes that need to be made, I use the Pen / Brush tool.

It looks really great, just like Reshiram.

Will you be doing a Kyurem v.3? Just asking.

It depends on whether or not I can make a good enough sketch for it. I've tried, but I haven't been able to make a sketch that looks as good as my v.2 art for Kyurem.

So I'll probably end up just keeping Kyurem at v.2 for a while and focus on drawing other Pokémon.

Yeah, that's fine. :) As long as you don't copy the exact pose, but if you do just be sure to give me credit for the original pose. (I've had other people do this in the past, so I figured it was just worth mentioning.)
