Crying because I got assigned to draw Gothita in the ‘r/pokemon draws Pokémon’ event on Reddit.
I HATE the Gothita line, and I’m generally more fond of the final evolutions in each line rather than the first or ‘baby’ evolutions. So I wasn’t happy when I Googled number 574 haha. I was going to avoid drawing it realistically simply because I dislike the design that much and couldn’t really think of a feasible way around it without making it super creepy. But then I saw it as a challenge and here’s the early interpretation for it so far, being based on owls (because humans looked horribly creepy).
Gothita apparently stares at ‘ghosts’ so much it doesn’t feel any attacks. Wanted to accentuate the creepy eyes (but the white around the eyes almost made me cringe, so I made them more owl-like). I also think feathers were a decent solution to the ‘gothic lolita clothing and hair’ that this line has, while bird forelimbs work pretty well given their lack of digits. And small beaks for their really odd ‘lips.’
I’d imagine as Gothita evolves they’d get slightly more humanoid-bird like. I even sketched realistic concepts for Gothorita and Gothitelle just to see if I could make this concept work for each design.
So yeah, here's a creepy, owl/bird, Furby thing.
