Realistic Pokemon: Froakie Evolution Line by ReneCampbellArt Realistic Pokemon: Froakie Evolution Line by ReneCampbellArt

I'm currently working on Chespin and Fennekin's lines at the moment, but it will be a bit longer before those are finished. I still have two exams that I should be revising for and lots of errands to run. Thought I'd upload the Froakie line since I finished it rather than waiting until they were all done.

As per usual, you can find my other realistic Pokémon sketches and drawings here.

I based these guys on a mix of Poison Arrow frogs and Asian Horned Frogs. I shifted Greninja's anatomy a little so that it could even stand up on its hind legs at all, and tried to retain that angular look that it has.

Anyway back to exam revision (sigh). These were done with Photoshop CS5 and a Wacom Cintiq 24 HD in a couple of hours.

I hate gamefreak. WHY did they wrap greninja's tongue around the neck like a scarf?!

There's some interesting biological theories behind Greninja's scarf tongue. Although I prefer bubbles it's not something to hate Gamefreak over.

What a despicable creature. Why the frozen hell would it have its tongue wrapped around its neck ?

VERY cool art though, thank you.

I don't know. Ask Gamefreak, they designed it that way to make it look 'Ninja-like.'

Someone said it could twist of the nerve endings and predators would peck at the bright fleshy tongue, leaving it to snap off (much like a geckos tail) and Greninja gets to live another day :)

Anybody else ever wonder if the Greninjas are suicidal?

What do you mean by 'suicidal'?

Seriously? They wrap their giant tongues around their necks and leave a good three feet hanging behind them for some guy to just place his foot on their back and PULL! If that don't count as inviting someone to kill you, then I don't know what does.

Thanks, but, at the end of a day, Greninja is a bipedal frog with a tongue scarf. Nothing I can do :)

lol did you check out megophrys for your sketch?

Yes, I did partly base Greninja on the Horned Toad.

my version used a bit of megophrys because of the origami like head....and the splendid tree frog for the ninja like quality...where'd you get your selections from?

Asian horned frogs for the head also, and poison arrow frogs for the colouring with some obvious changes in anatomy :)

Nice pic, never realized that was Greninja's tongue that it used as a scarf. Talk about being tongue tied.

These are wonderful designs! My only qualm is that Greninja doesn't look like the facultative quadruped it seems to be in the games.

Greninja is actually more bidpedal in the games but crouches on all fours like a ninja. My version would easily be able to jump and move on all fours, I just wanted to depict it in a standing up pose since it (and the other gen 6 starter evos) are depicted as rather humanoid to fit in with their rpg class theme :)

I haven't been really up to date with the newest pokémon, but I take it this is the water starter for X and Y?

I love how dynamic his body looks like and how correctly the anatomy is (frogs and anphibians in general prove hard to draw since they lack a skeleton... at least for me they prove to be a chalenge :P). The colouring is also pretty great, with well placed light areas.

I really do love your art (:

Well they do have skeletons, just thin and strange anatomy. But yes they are harder to correctly draw with out trouble. Especially ones that need stand with more human like pose's like poke'mon.
