Realistic Pokemon: Flygon by ReneCampbellArt Realistic Pokemon: Flygon by ReneCampbellArt
I love Dragons so drawing Flygon was easy; I referenced house fly characteristics to help add that insect feel to Flygon without going overboard.

A few hours, Photoshop + Tablet. Now time to do Haxorus and Garchomp!

Flygon isn't actually a Bug Type, it's Dragon/Ground :) And thanks!

Yours are the best realistic Pokémon I've ever seen. Of coarse, your competition is a tortoise photoshoped blue with cannons cut and pasted to its shell. But still super good! :D (Big Grin)

As with most other commenters on this piece, I too see artists going either all draconic or all insectiod with their designs. This piece however is a good balance between the two, and I must say I love it to pieces. Realistic headcanon accepted!!!

Quite a perfect combination of insect and reptile, I really like those external eye covers and the wings are especially great, perfect blend of classic insect wings and actual arms.

Quite the looker...but some thing about that eye doesn't look like it fits but it might just be my phone.

ReneCampbellArt Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2014  Student General Artist
The actual eye is hidden behind the large pink sheath that Flygon has to protect it from dust (like a pair of goggles), so it is transparent, if that's what you mean :)

It's wings should be a little bit bigger and wider in order to realistically support it's massive weight (at least as big as it's body, like the official Pokemon sketch), but other than that, it looks amazing!

The wings are actually more or less the same size as the one shown in the original anime drawing (which, under scrutiny, may not provide flight on their own. Wing beats per second, and other biological structures such as hollow bones also come into play).

Considering how this pokemon is in ONLY the bug egg group, this is probably the best realistic representation of it.

I don't base my interpretations on type or egg groups, but merely on its design. I've seen much more insectoid interpretations of Flygon that suggest it is fully an invertebrate and thus fits in the bug egg group better than mine. I depict it as half bug, half reptile, so-to-speak. Realistically, it would have it's own taxonomic class and thus an egg group of its own :)

Great work! This is one of my favorite realistic Flygon designs. Most people make it too reptilian, but you managed to keep it looking insectoid. Love it.

One of my favorite dragons. I like how you combine aspects of insects and dragons in this piece, like the fine hairs dotting parts of the back and the combination of dragon-like wings and butterfly-like wings.
