    Topic:
    COW #319: Pokemon Re-Design

    Brief:
    I have been putting off this topic for a little while, but I felt now's a better time than any to once and for all make this available to the creature designers of Creature of the Week! Behold Pokemon, the popular nintendo franchise filled with wondrous and fascinating pocket monsters! There are more than 700 pokemon that have been announced so far, 719 to be exact. As a result there will be plenty of creatures to choose from, but I want you to please keep in mind, there are a large amount of pokemon that would break some of the rules of CoW or would not be considered technically creatures (ex, Machamp, Bellsprout, Ditto, Magnemite; to name a few). I will not restrict you from picking one of these pokemon, but I would ask that you try to avoid picking one of these since others would be better suited for Creature of the Week. However if you do decide to re-design one of those "other" pokemon, do try your best to 'adjust' their design so that they can properly fit into the rules of COW (at least if you wanna make the poll).
    One last thing that I require for participants in this round, this is going to be a first come first serve style round, so you cannot use a pokemon that someone else has already laid a claim to. Therefore before designing a final piece you must have called a 'claim' on your chosen pokemon here within the WIPS THREAD, otherwise you will not be included in the poll. So without further ado, you are required this round to re-design any of the 719 Pokemon from the popular video game franchise.


    Round Requirements:
    -you can choose any of the 719 pokemon, but please keep the rules in mind when designing your pokemon.
    Here's a complete list of Pokemon to help you choose
    -you MUST claim your chosen pokemon in the wips thread in order for it to be included in the poll

    These are the claims made so far, any pokemon listed below are no longer available for designing unless the artist that has claimed them states they no longer want to use that pokemon for their entry:
    Hydreigon - Scorge
    Salamence - Rob Powell

    -Remember to make the design your own rather than just a realistic interpretation of your chosen pokemon
    -I would also ask that you would provide a small thumbnail of the original artwork or sprite for the sake of comparison and the fact that it'll be easier to identify it as a pokemon since there are so many available now

    After a little contemplation, I've decided to put a claim on Salamence instead, I think I'll have more fun with him. That means Sableye is back up for grabs.

    I choose Haunter! Is it too "human" because it has hands?

    Moirae: Don't miss understand, I did not restrict the use of any pokemon so long as your final design still adheres to the rules...it is perfectly acceptable if a creature has a couple human qualities (such as human-like hands) so long as it's final design isn't too humanoid. Neat start so far on the sketch, before going to far with it see what else you can do in terms of concept.

    Archerion: I didn't recognize the name at first and assumed it was a Japanese name, however I looked it up and it appears to be a fan-made pokemon that evolves from Houndoom. You have to choose one of the official 719 Pokemon from the games in order to participate this round. You are free to use Houndoom if you want, or even Mega Houndoom. As I will allow Megas for this round.

    Art is not about competing against others and being better than everyone else, but it is about competing against yourself and discovering your greatest potential!

I want to do dunsparce http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wi...arce_(Pokémon) but he is pretty pathetic on his own... I'm not laying claim to it but uhhh yeah just wondering

    Xionix: You can go absolutely nuts with the design! So long as we can still recognize the final design to be your chosen pokemon, then the sky's the limit!

    Cool idea! I'm not familiar with any particular pokemon (except Pikachu ofc..), so it's a little hard to choose and keep track of which ones have already been taken. Perhaps you could keep a list in the first post of which have been chosen and by whom? (Also it looks like two people are doing Pyroar.)

    Anyway, I'm gonna try Sawsbuck.
