Oh goodness I do apologise for the Noise filter, I added a bit too much and couldn't change it :<
Anyway here is Scolipede, one of my favourite bug type Pokémon. I based it on centipedes obviously (even some large extinct kinds) and looked at a huge bunch of macro images, but also did extensive research on making the legs insectoid rather than horselike. I did also have have shorter legs but it's just didn't look right, Scolipede looks quite large and it's stubby little legs look a tad useless. Essentially Scolipede is a 'centaurpede.' Either way, if you don't like centipedes, this will probably freak you out!
Done in Photoshop CS5 with a Wacom Cintiq 24 HD. It took quite some time because I redid so many things throughout. Maybe 10 hours
Where it kisses you obviously look at this precious bab.
Now there's a point - if pokemon trainers have 'gotta catch em all', then what happens if one of them is too squeamish to go near, just of the top of my head... a scolipede?
I just took another look at the picture, and I'm now totally on board the scolipede bandwagon. Go figure.
I wish I could have a Cintiq.
"What about those damn Unovans?"
"They ride bugs."
"They ride bugs?"
"Yeah, they ride bugs!"
". . .They ride bugs?"
"Yeah. Giant fucking purple bugs. Bugs instead of rapidash. It's fucking insane."
"That is fucking insane."
"Those damn Unovans."
Well at least they don't ride mossy goats, amirite?
This is the best realistic rendition of scolipede I've ever seen. You have the touch.
It looks awesome! It's scary and even a little bit disgusting, yet also really cool and the design and the colours are beautiful
I stumbled over your Pokemon art today and it left me speechless *.*
Love the way you made its head and the fact that the cerci look like the antenna, just like the game design. I can only imagine the strenght of those mandibles
Keep up the good work
I would probably panic if I met that Scolipede...
I mean wow!
