Thank you c: The main brushes I used for this I believe were the regular air brush (on a hard setting), the normal brush, the marker tool, and the eraser tool. The lines are done with marker, the colouring was air brush and I THINK brush as well, but I could be wrong. (I mainly use that tool for lining but I sometimes flip and use it for colouring as well, although I'm p sure I mainly used air brush) and then shading is a combination of air brush and the eraser tool on a very large, low density setting.
Well, it's open to interpretation as to whether Latias and Latios would actually look like dragons. Altaria is listed as a dragon type, after all. And when you're drawing pokemon in a more realistic style everything is really up to the artist.
Eh I think it makes good sense, tbh, but that's just my opinion. I've always thought of dragons as an advanced type of dinosaur-- and birds, being the descendants of dinosaurs-- fit really well into that group to me
I don't see why a dragon can't look like a bird? ahahaha I've never really thought of them as dragons though, tbh. I actually had to google their types to remind myself what they were in the first place. But eh, I just really like birds and their shape just makes me think of birds xD
I think honestly I just like birds a bit too much and tend to mentally make a lot of Pokemon more birdlike in my head xD (like with Yamask and Darumaka, they seem bird-like to me and I've drawn them both more like birds to match that ahahaha) Happy you like the rendition, though c:
