Realistic Pokemon Sketches: Water Starters by ReneCampbellArt Realistic Pokemon Sketches: Water Starters by ReneCampbellArt
Will come back to these later.

Squirtle: A bit of a challenge since Squirtle is shown as both a biped and quadruped in the anime. After a lot of feedback to make Charmander biped (who is never quadruped in the anime), I decided to depict Squirtle as a semi-biped Terrapin (Fresh Water Turtle). I had to change the features but I can only speculate a Squirtle would probably use all fours most of the time and chill on its back legs for a better look at its surroundings.

Totodile: No brainer; baby crocodile. It was really hard to even make it biped so it's on all fours now.

Mudkip: An interesting one. A cross between an Axolotl and a Mudskipper.

Piplup: Baby Emperor Penguin.

Oshawott: Sea Otter Pup with a Beaver tail.

This is just how I interpret Pokémon if they were 'real-life' or 'realistic.' I understand that people don't agree with my interpretations, but instead of getting snarky about it you can always find another artist to draw Pokémon the way you see them :) Hope you like them guys!

Do you take requests? I plan on getting one of the water starters as my 21st bday tattoo, I already have tri-force/deathbat so the whole tat regrets is out the window already.
I really like pip/osh
