Realistic Pokemon Sketches: Gen 6 Starters by ReneCampbellArt Realistic Pokemon Sketches: Gen 6 Starters by ReneCampbellArt
So Pokémon X and Y got announced, and I just had to draw the starters! Hopefully their evolutions come out nicely. My favourite is Fennekin, then Chespin, then Froakie.

The legendaries look awesome too.

Chespin: It's strange breaking out of reptilian starters, and Chespin was probably the hardest. However it's markings and grass type made me think of a Chipmunk, so I went along with that (apart from the tail of course!) The hat made me think of the fuzzy coating ofChestnut fruits, with the green down it's back and tail being some sort of moss-like growth.

Fennekin: Yep, my favourite of the three, and obviously a Fennec Fox. Didn't change much, apart from adding quill-like fur on it's hind legs and fluffing up the face/ears. I added rounded black markings near the eyes to kind of replicate the style shown in the original character.

Froakie: My least favourite, but it has potential. Just an average frog really, with reference to the Blue Poison Dart Frog. Only because it's blue though. The white spots on it's nose are glands that secrete a mucus, and Froakie can rub this mucus on it's body to prevent itself drying out. It can also blow air into the mucus to make a bubble like foam (as many frogs do for their spawn etc) which it carries on is back to further keep it from drying out.

Agreed <3
I chose Fennekin because I liked Braixen, but in the end I wished I chose Froakie.
Oh well... Vinn, my Blastoise, will always be my water starter in X. And I couldn't give up Firenz (Del') <3

You should redo this sometime, since Chespin's dex says that the green is wood

Eh, the Dex is usually wrong ;) It still contains cellulose, just with leafy green moss growing on top. Nothing really to redo.

I disagree. From what I have seen it is turning out to be one of the most revolutionary (as a Pokémon game that is), and many of the designs are shaping up to be awesome!

Now these are Pokemon I would actually train! The official designs, on the other hand... let's hope the evolutions look cooler. Gogoat and the legendaries are the only GVI Pokemon I like so far.
