Great! I tried to make a dark mystical forest scene with little spotlight behind the legendary creature. But now that I look at this I see that the composition could be better and the colors too. Who knows.. maybe I'll do a better one some time.
Yep.. and yep.. It looks oldskool + newskool because 1. its digital 2. it has a 2013 pokemon game and a new legendary 3. but its hand-painted in a traditional style, just digitally 4. the brush style is looking like oil painting.
Very beautiful. Xerneas is such a mejestic sight. I was blown away when I first saw it back in January. Out of the two I'd say Xerneas is the most beautiful and graceful with the power to back that up, naturally. It's no wonder it's Fairy Type! I could just see this pokemon being called the "Guardian of the Forest" and leading lost people and pokemon back on the right path and helping hurt and lost travelers. Celebi's the "Spirit of the Forest" so that would surely make Xerneas the "Forest Guardian".
I look at Xerneas and I think of the Forest Spirit from Princess Mononoke and the Great Prince of the Forest from Bambi! Very nicely done Xerneas really looks at home within the forest in this picture!
