Realistic Pokemon: Houndoom by ReneCampbellArt Realistic Pokemon: Houndoom by ReneCampbellArt
1/3 of my favourite fire types (non legendary). Decided to go for the Hellhound look rather than a Doberman with horns and chains.

sorry but, i think this houndoom looks like its pretty dead (undead,walking dead) i mean the whole skin and fur was burned away!it creepy if i think about that there usually should be iron or stell instead of bones!
BUT!
 
its really nice artwork!

It's meant to be dead, after all, it's based on a Hell Hound and they are undead beings :)

Thought the bones were also a much more cooler interpretation than bits if random steel on a Doberman with horns. But hey, that's just me.

that's a wicked houndoom.. 
i have been requested to use this in a Photoshop trainer card. To be honest, i would love to. its really actually quite cool.
it will be for a dark gym leader. the other sprite he requested would look awesome with your houndoom: Evil Anime girl by xXBubblesXx3
i am praying you both say yes haha x)
all artists who are awesome enough to allow me to manipulate their awesome work get links on facebook, deviant, youtube, the actual edit itself with much loves and shout outs. <3


look forward to a reply soon ^^

Sorry, but I don't usually let my artworks be manipulated and used, especially if the payment is only 'exposure.' I will be declining your offer at this time.

With this picture, Houndoom got even more epic.
I love that you gave him fire, gave him exterior bones, made realistic horns, and rationalized that weird thing on his chest.
Also, I just realized the Pokemon Houndoom's back legs are... off. By a long shot. Now it bugs me. XD

I think giving it the undead look is way better than the doberman with accessories thing.  Haven't seen this before.  Good job

If they ever do a more adult oriented spin off for the franchise, I hope they use your designs.

You know most of the time when you see realistic makes you want the pokemon less but now I want a Houndoom more.

I'd say you took way too many liberities in creating it and it doesn't look much like Houndoom, which IS a Doberman. But then again, it's your drawing and interpretation.

Houndoom is actually a Hellhound, but I used the Doberman as the main reference for anatomy. I understand about liberties (for example, Houndoom isn't on fire and half rotting), but by lore and what it is based off, that's what a Hellhound is. Doberman-only Houndooms are very boring interpretations to me.

I absolutely love this. The Hellhound look definitely works a lot better than, as you said, just going for a Doberman with horns. I love that it looks like it's being immolated from the inside out and the red hot embers collecting at the bottom of his rib cage translate into the orange belly on the actual Pokemon. What a great concept!

Houndoom was one of my old-time stables back in the day. Cornerstone of my team, and even then I was scared of it. "If bitten by a Houndoom, the pain never goes away even long after the wound has healed" -- Silver version, Pokedex ofHoundoom (might have paraphrased a little.)

._. If I had seen this first... I don’t think I would have been able to sleep at night if I were actually a Houndoom trainer.

On the upside, this shows exactly how much potential pokemon has to become "cool" again it the drop of a hat -- if they added a dash of realism and dropped the kiddy crap the world would spin the other direction for a day it'd be hit so hard by the fallout.

VERY GOOD DRAWING btw.
