Alakazam by Culpeo-Fox Alakazam by Culpeo-Fox
Last night i had one of the most epic dreams ever.

I was part of Thorin and Company (lol wtf), travelling not through middle earth but dark and eerie jungles, not hunted by orcs and wargs but cannibals and surreal cyclope-like monsters.

If that wasn't whimsical enough: I also had my Pokémon team with me, my Alakazam (for whatever reason) being the one who constantly was outside his Pokéball, walking along with me. He could actually talk (and would do that with the most softspoken voice), he was wise and caring and elegant and a gentle-pokémon and intelligent and badass, and oh my God, Alakazam.
At some point, i got apart from the group, hunted by those monsters - Alakazam insisted to stay behind and save time for me, fighting these creatures on his own. "Go on, master, the dwarves need you!"
Fuck those dwarves! I wanted to stay with my Alakazam. D8 But he'd just push me miles away in a safe place with his psychic powers, leaving me wailing for him like a little baby.

...the rest of the day, i kept scribbling dozens of Alakazams and entertaining the one in my team Y for decades. Alakazam always was one of my favourite Pokémon but now...wow. I mean, think about it, he sacrificed himself for me. D8
(and yeah, i know, it is just a ridiculous dream that i'm so excited about, but i can't help the fact that my dreams are able to leave some of the most intense impacts on me - no matter how absurd they might be.)

TT^TT I was NEVER able to get an Alakazam because I didn't have a buddy to trade Kadabras with!! Alakazam's one of my favorite Phychic types, dammit!! Why, Game Freak?? Just......WHY TRADE EXCLUSIVE?!? Couldn't you have made Kadabra/Machoke/Graveler/Haunter evolve at like, Level 50 or something? *sigh* Oh, well......At least I can see him in Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Teams......Anyway, awesome pic with gorgeous effects:DI just woke up this morning with a horrible nightmare:noes:......I think I was killed in a forest fire trying to save an orphaned baby Abra......*huddles next to Alakazam here*

Alakazam! :love: I think we may share a similar huge fan feeling for that pokemon, especially because your dream sounds pretty epic and makes him even more awesome. Actually, Alakazam and Mewtwo are my fav psychics but Alakazam just wins with his looks.

This painting looks great! I like the dark forest color tones (as well as the hint of trees in the background), the soft golden light on the scenery, how it reflects on the character (and his spoon), and the glowing dust flakes in the air. Maybe they're pollen. Either way, it adds to the myserious atmosphere.

And Alakazam's eyes. You're really good at capturing the essence of vulpine eyes and the way they're look at things. It's always fun to see pokemon in your style. :D

Wow, danke für deinen Kommentar! (und verzeih mir, dass ich auf Deutsch antworte, ich bin da immer ein bisschen faul)

Oh ja, Psychopokémon, da sagst du was. Meine Lieblingsviecher aus dem Typ waren ebenfalls stets Mewtu und Simsala :) (sowie Lugia und Latios). Witzigerweise war Simsala in meinen Traum ein Mewtu-abschlag mit seinen telepathischen Sprachfähigkeiten, der Stimme usw. (und meine Güte, wer laut Pokédex 5000 IQ sein Eigen nennt, der sollte schon dazu in der Lage ein... D8 )

Weitere Pokémon werden noch folgen. Geplant ist noch eins mit meinen jeweiligen Startern und Lieblingspokémon im Generellen. Das sind schon...ein...paar. Be afraid. D8

Ja stimmt völlig! Was der Pokedex sagt, zeigt sich irgendwie so selten. xD Wie zum Beispiel dass Tauboss mit Schallgeschwindigkeit fliegen kann? Erstens passiert das nie und zweitens, wie fest und stabil müssen die Federn im Körper stecken- zusammen mit Mortzflügelmuskeln und Knochen die nicht bei der Geschwindigkeit brechen?

Irgendwie mache ich mir eh meine eigene kleine Pokemonwelt, besonders wenn ich meine Comics mache. Da darf zum Beispiel Simsala sich telephatisch unterhalten, und alle Pokemon dürfen mehr als nur vier Angriffe lernen lol.

Über Sinn und Unsinn der Pokedex-Einträge haben Skia und ich uns schon zu früheren Zeiten lustig gemacht. Mein Libelingsbeispiel ist ja immernoch Wailord: 14,5 Meter lang bei 398 Kilogramm Gewicht. Halten wir dagegen mal den Walhai: der wird "nur" bis zu 13 Meter lang - bringt allerdings satte 8 Tonnen auf die Waage. WTF, aus was für einer Schaumstoffmasse besteht so ein Wailord? 8D 350 Kilogramm, soviel bringt so mancher korpulenter Mensch auch auf die Waage. Oder nehmen wir Entoron. 1,70 soll das groß sein. No fucking WAY, dass ein Entoron genauso groß ist wie ein Glurak, das ist ja allein schon von den Proportionen her ein Unding (und die Größe finde ich für Glurak wiederum ganz schön...mickrig. :P).

Andere Einträge jedoch sind extrem inspirierend, bzw. ziehe ich die für meine "eigene Pokémonwelt" eher zu Rate. Die Sache mit Simsala etwa hat mich dermaßen durchgerüttelt, dass sich da wohl auch erstmalig eine Art ernsthafter Fancomic/Fancictionding um eben dieses Simsala anbahnt. Mal sehen. :P
