Realistic Pokemon Sketches: Water Final Evolutions by ReneCampbellArt Realistic Pokemon Sketches: Water Final Evolutions by ReneCampbellArt
That'll do for now I think.

Blastoise: Heavy armoured terrapin/tortoise, with the face of a Snapping Turtle. The jets are based on the Mollusc Siphon(cephalopods mostly), and the muscle tissue can extend, harden and rotate so water pressure and accuracy is increased (in before dick joke). The thing is, these siphons are very vulnerable compared to the rest of Blastoise's armour, so many trainers incorporate metals plates for protection.

Feraligatr: Saltwater Crocodile mixed in with the Kaprosuchus.

Swampert: Giant Salamander + Mudskipper + Axolotl.

Empoleon: Emperor Penguin + Rockhopper Penguin. Down sized the flippers as well. The sharp edges are hardened bone maybe?

Samurott: Sea Lion and Sea Otter. Samurott's back half needed more otter type physiology because a full fledged Sea Lion didn't work out. The head shell is based on a Caltrop Murex shell.

Blastoise looks a bit weak and small.

Looks fine to me. I have nothing for scale to compare Blastoise's size too, so I don't know how it looks 'small.'

Love the feraligatr, but might've liked slightly longer arms on the swampert :)

Empoleon's got that regal stance to it, too.

Nice snapping turtle design for blastoise, and the otter-like impression for samurott's lovely.

I agree. Although, for some reason, the any realistic depiction of blastoise always just looks like the original to me - it probably has something to do with the fact that there are water cannons sticking out of a tortoise.

I like how you gave Blastoise those Large Scaled Plates on his arms, to represent those strange thick loops on his arms. Great Job. :)

Great job! On Samurott especially! I didn't think there was a way to make him look credible, but you've proved that assumption wrong.

I can't help but notice you don't get a lot of views on you work, despite your obvious talent. I was wondering if you'd mind me posting some of this to my tumblr. Not just the pokemon redesigns either, but your great wood-cut-like animals also. I'd of course link them to your dev-art page.

I won't do it without your okay. Give me the word and I'll try to get you traffic, though I can't say I'm famous or anything.
