Xerneas Scarlet by Dekus Xerneas Scarlet by Dekus
When I first saw Xerneas in the new Pokemon X/Y trailer - I instantly thought of Flandre Scarlet.
I made a topic on reddit.com about it and people seemed to like it.. so here is the rendered painting!

Photoshop CS6
Wacom Intuos 4 A5 Wide
Took me 1,5 days
Reference pic of Xerneas, Flandre and a deer.. oh and some forest pics..

I recorded some of the painting process: [link]

It was fun to mix two things that i like.. Touhou and Pokemon.. and challenging as I haven't really painted forests before. :)

OH!! There is a hidden Cirno in there! (Pretty easy to spot though..) :D

This would be like Mega  Xerneas, or Xerneas Primal Forme. Awesome

Hey really nice picture.. I'm making some videos about the Ubers metagame (I'm not sure if you play competitive pokemon but that's what I'm using your picture for). My video is here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=SmNhrv…

No idea what you're talking about but okey! :)
You can use my paintings as long as you don't make any profit from them.

Slight problem: We now know that Xerneas is the Pokemon of LIFE. Yveltal is the Pokemon of DESTRUCTION. Not that Flan is the embodiment of destruction. It is just one of her powers, and she is sane enough to not use it, even in danmaku. Would someone completely gone still do that out of love for their sister?...

Layman's terms: Xerneas's title and power is the opposite of what Flan's main power is said to be. Also, Flan is not quite as insane as most think...

ah. yes. I am aware of those.. It's just that I saw flans wings in xerneas and I just couldn't resist not to paint one.
It's an artists drive.. you just don't deny it.

Xerneas as Flandre. As if the Uber tier did not have enough nightmares about the new Legendaries. Now, the one they fear most can kyuu them...

Maybe shiny-Xerneas will be red? Then it'll really look like Flandre.

YES! I thought the exact same thing when I saw him (assuming Xerneas is a he)!
I guess now we know what pokemon Flandre would have if she were a trainer. Hell, Xerneas would probably be naturally attracted to her. They'd be, like, childhood-pals or somethin'. x]

Also, forgot to mention, AMAZING artwork. Smooth coloring. And Cirno was not that easy to find, even now I'm still not sure if I really found her... =.=

Yea.. maybe they will add Xerneas to Touhoumon lol..
Cirno is in a small fairy spirit mode with her little diamond-shaped wings in right lower corner :D

hm.. no.. I haven't thought of that. As TH got so mega popular - maybe it even affected the PKMN designers.. who knows.
