Realistic Pokemon: Charizard by ReneCampbellArt Realistic Pokemon: Charizard by ReneCampbellArt

Phew, glad to have this one out the way. I spent a bit more time on this one compared to my others, about six hours in total. I decided to make Charizard less...fat, but still retaining that classic stockiness that it has. Also, before any of you ask why its wings are arms, here's a biology lesson for you. Wings and arms are homologous structures! They have the same form but a different function; they're not entirely different things (you'd be surprised how often I get this). Yep, same goes for anime Charizard even though its wings have been simplified a lot :)

Anyway, as usual here's  all my other realistic Pokémon sketches and interpretations. Which type should I do next? (I've done Dragon, Ghost and Fire type so far).

This was drawn with Photoshop CS5 and a Wacom Cintiq 24 HD tablet in about six hours.

This is amazing. I really like that it's as "realistic" as possible while still staying true to the original design. The only issue I have is that the snout seems a bit too narrow, but even that's a minor point.

I love this! Instant Fav!!! Incredible attention to detail, in all aspects. In particular, I like the way you did the fire at the end of the tail. . . very clever. Masterful design on the wings, as well. Most people don't think about the "wings are essentially arms" concept, which you pulled off incredibly well. Cant wait to see more like this one. . .

I LOVE your rendition of charizard. one of the best I've seen so far because it still looks like the original pokemon but looks a lot more epic XD
Beautiful.

I think you should do a dark type next. Like weavile or something. I haven't seen many of those.

It's amazing! His eyes look menacing, the scales are very realistic (I specially love the wrinkles (?) in his neck, belly and wings). Another clever touch you added were the bones on the scales, it's amazing how you noted that it would be weird-looking if the flames were just there...

You're taking commissions? I always loved the steel types. Maybe Metagross will prove a challenge to you?
