I AM LUGIA HEAR ME ROAR

Made for Game-Art-HQ's :icongame-art-hq: Pokemon Gen II Tribute collaboration. It'll become available for everyone in April, but those that had already participated in the Gen I Tribute collab (like yours truly) get to submit their entries a month earlier. Yay!

I chose Lugia because he's one of my favorites. I love how, in spite of his minimalistic design, he still appears imposing and powerful, whereas newer legendaries need to have a convoluted anatomy to be just as imposing. I mean, they don't all look bad or anything (I love Giratina, for instance, and that guy has a pretty complex design), but Lugia just has a certain charm in his simplicity.

Also, his wings are really just giant hands. I mean, really, what's not to love about this fella.

ADDENDUM: I forgot to mention this in the original post, but I was conflicted as to how to depict Aeroblast at first. There are two variants; the one in Gen II and the second movie, where it was an orange laser beam, or the current version, which is just a hurricane breath. I kinda just combined the two version, turning it into a laser beam surrounded by a hurricane. Now that is hardcore. 

I felt like trying something different here, wanted to try out some brush tools. Tried to go for a more sophisticated shading than what I usually go for, while also keeping the dynamism I like to keep in my drawings.

Also, it's been forever, hasn't it? I haven't done anything new for my current project art wise, but I am working on it! Just, y'know, felt like drawing something for once, and maybe I get to submit some fanart a bit more often.

I'm liking that tornado beam effect! It just doesn't look as impactful without the light beam IMHO, so I'm glad you chose that. The tornado effect adds some nice bit of turbulence to it. The thick and scratchy lineart, as wella s the brush on the coloring adds to that too. Awesome stuff! :D
