Boy, i was disappointed when i saw Braixen for the first time. WTF, i thought, they made a fucking ballerina with a stick in the ass, i thought. I mean...a stick in it's ass. WHY. Then i got Y, i got my Fennekin, i evolved it and Braixen disabused me very quickly, because....it may have a stick in its ass and look awfully feminine, but holy smokes, are these stick moves STYLISH or what.
As for Delphox: It's still hard to swallow this overkill earfluff but come on, it's a magician. Soft spot for magicians and stuff. Mega-Alakazam: Didn't see it in action so far, so i can't say much about it yet. But looking so forward to it. D8
Fuck yeah, Pokémon.
One of the reasons i got hooked on Pokémon anno 99 and still enjoy the games, beside the overall addictive collecting/fighting concept (and and and): Foxlike critters everywhere. And they still keep designing even moar.
Some time ago i felt like doing a little collection between work and here you go with an odd...culpeo-esque pokémonstyleidunnobla (yes, i always saw Abra, Kadabra und Alakazam as foxes. And i do love them, really. I remember that i wouldn't leave Cerulean City before i caught an Abra (mostly called "Houdini" just BECAUSE ) that also always stayed constantly in my team after that.)
And please don't be disappointed that i didn't include the Eveelutions here. Even though they do share some vulpine features i could never see them as foxes but rather...cabbits (cat+rabbit hybrids). You know. Long, thin ears, short muzzles (and i'll kiss a horse if Espeon's inspiration wasn't especially borrowed from cats). Doesn't mean that i do not like them, though. Umbreon actually is one of my favourites.
And i feel like drawing more. Maybe i'll throw in another one with my favourite Pokémon.
But you know what? Both our opinions are alright, because: in terms of what Pokémon are - each to their own.
But not many people outside of Japan knows this but Eevee was based on Fox Squirrel from Studio Ghibli movie "Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind".
Here is a link to comparing the Fox Squirrel to Eevee:
This character was made by Hayao Miyazaki who is one of the the greatest animators who have ever lived; his fame earned him the moniker "The Japanese Walt Disney"
Teto himself is said to be based on a fennec fox.
I apologize if my grammar seems to be suspect, english is not my native tougue.
If you have any question feel free to respond.
Da du die Füchse in Semi realistische stil gezeichnet hast, weiss ich nicht welches Geschlecht zu denen gegeben hast. °xD
Kadabra sieht aber ziemlich weiblich aus!
Aber sie sehen alle super aus! >///<
Und ich bin erleichtert keines der Evoli Entwicklungen zu sehen. :'D
Interesting that you think of Alakazam as a fox, I could never really make out what he was supposed to be.
And it's nice to see a new twist on the eevolutions, I never thought of them as cats except for Espeon, obviously a cat.
I always thought of Mew and Mewtwo as kangaroos, not cats as well.
