Dragon Dance by Noktowl Dragon Dance by Noktowl
For So I Herd U Liek Progress

Based on something I made 5 years ago [link]
combined with the real Dragon Dance

Nope, I'm still not a fan of Gyarados.
As much as I think it has great design and
in-game usability, it's overused.

I'm not a fan of overrated stuffs.
But a design this awesome deserves
to be overrated, I must admit.

So... the concept was basically to draw
my brother's Gyarados and my Milotic
(it was drawn during the Ruby/Sapphire period)
in one scene. The two were battle frontier buddies.
In multi mode, the two swept the enemies easily.
Wasn't our the best team for competitive playing,
but we loved the fishies.


Bonus: Phailed sketches that took me over 2 hours [link]

Photoshop & Wacom tablet, with a bit of patience
and slight pain in my fingers for 15 hours.

I'd like to see a Gyarados like that on the streets for Chinese new year or something. :XD:

I am very intrigued by the detail and style that you've put into Milotic and Gyarados. It has a distinct Eastern feel to it, the obvious Lung Dragon design presenting itself very well in this portrayal. Milotic is something to behold as well, and has a very interesting fish like look to it. In my opinion, Milotic looks like something of a Koi Fish, or a Catfish in this, what with the whiskers.

The colors clash VERY well with this! The soft Pinks, Reds and Oranges against the Blues, Yellows and Sea green makes this picture very Elegant looking, combined with the Style. Overall, Great work, and congratulations on the DD, as well as the First Place prize!
