Realistic Pokemon: Scolipede by ReneCampbellArt Realistic Pokemon: Scolipede by ReneCampbellArt

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

That'd be a scary-looking bug in real life!

I am deathly afraid of centipedes and if I saw this charging at me, I'd rather die on the spot

This looks so freaky, I love it! I like Scolipede too. It was a cool pokemon. I feel rather glad we don't have those really runing around though.. I sometimes wonder how people even survive in pokemon world lol

I love when bug Pokemon look frighteningly insectoid. This is fantastic!

Now that, THAT is disturbing. Great artwork, don't get me wrong, but a supermassive arthruplura/centaur combo is not something I want to catch. Or battle. Or get within one hundred metres of.

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?
