.:Water walk:. by Shoyu-Rai .:Water walk:. by Shoyu-Rai
Did a poll [link] with different dragon pokemon, and flygon was in the lead, so decided to draw one :dummy:

Flygon is a tricky pokemon to make realistic. In the games they have insect pre-evolutions and is probably based on a dragonfly o3o added one there btw XD But decided to try draw one in the style I do for my true (those with 6 limbs) dragons: saurian.

So will (probably) make some more pokemon how they would fit into my world of dragons. And like any of my big dragons, they can only glide o3o

Here is some description for my type of flygon:

A medium-sized dragon, built for speed and medium distance gliding. The tripple spade tail is good for gliding to hold up the tail. It has a very short face, so it preys on smaller creatures and insects that's big enough.

Their coloration doesn't fit in the desert, so as vibravas they leave the desert and lives later on plains or rainforests, with cliffs and hills for gliding. Females later return to the desert to lay their eggs in the warm sand. After they lay the eggs, the females return back home, leaving the eggs alone. Trapinches develop a hard insect-like shell, as a protection from predators. By time, the shell loosen up and changes color, still keeping an insect-like apperance.

As adolescence, their shell breaks, revealing their true appearance. Males are more bright red around the eye and on the wings, used for attracting a mate and scarring off opponents.


More realistic pokémon

Flygon and its pre-evolutions are based on antlions. young antlions dig pits in sand that ants will fall into and they will then grab them with teir giant jaws. Adult antlions look alot like dragonflies. They are also called sand dragons hence the typing.

I love the way you depicted Flygon in this. The fact that it isn't large or overly brawny like most dragons, but more slim and built for travel from the desert to the rainforest, in which yes, the coloring would work much better, and back again to lay eggs; it all woks perfectly for flygon.

The color palette you chose works really well. The way the specific shades blend in flygon's hide to work quite well in marsh or rainforest environments, and the environment itself showcases that.

Amazing job.

You know what? alot of these designs would be perfect if they ever made a Pokemon Movie with real people instead of anime charactors. Like.... these can sorta be what pokemon look like in the REAL world :D!

Something interesting to note is that the Trapinch/Vibrava/Flygon Pokemon were inspired by a real life animal called an Ant Lion or a doodle bug.

This looks really good! I enjoy looking at realistic pokemon; nice way to take a break from the steadily stranger appearances of the new ones...

Nice, I like how you made it running through the water to catch it's prey. I also like how you kept it stealthy, rather than strong and powerful like most realistic dragonmon.
