Machine by The-Walking-Dude

This was the second piece for the compilation assignment that I wanted to submit here. This time the source of inspiration was Shaun Tan. I really liked his books as a kid, primarily for the illustrations he made.  They always intrigued me, with their contrast of surreal designs of contorting structures and brightly coloured creatures with the realism of urban environments and arid landscapes.

The Shrine to the Maw by The-Walking-Dude
The Shrine to the Maw
So for Uni, we had to create some compilations with reference to artists that inspired us. I liked this one so much, thought I'd submit it. (a solid month after I finished it. Best at submitting things~)

Anyways, the artist in question for this piece was Perth Artist Austen Mengler, whose works I really admire, both for the macabre content, and for how simple in design his pieces can be, yet so detailed.

Kinda liked how this piece turned out, seeing as I was trying something new, and I really thoroughly enjoyed the process of making it.

Poke-collab Gen3: #337 LUNATONE by The-Walking-Dude
Poke-collab Gen3: #337 LUNATONE
Lunatone Are well known to hang around in caves, but they have been known to dwell in forests on occasion. They hang from stalactites or branches to rest and lay in wait for its prey. Their scale formation often resembles the rocks of the caves they dwell in as camoflage, particularly near the tail, leading many to believe that they could levitate. Lunatone possess a bright red, reflective scale, larger than the rest, on each side of the torso. In dark caves, bright light will highlight these scales, as well as the claws on the feet, designed to scare predators into thinking that the Lunatone is a much larger, more dangerous creature.

-------------------------------

Lunatone design for the 3rd Poke-Collab at :icongottadrawemall:

When I was given Lunatone, I started wondering what sorta animal it might be, then Mum showed me a picture of a Pangolin hanging upside down by its tail, and I thought it was perfect. I felt I had to draw one upside-down as well as one standing on the floor, so I could say 'yes, it IS a Lunatone. Of sorts.'

Lunatone Belongs to Gamefreak/Nintendo

Comment below and if you are among the first 20 to comment (hahaha, like that'll be hard) I´ll give you a feature here, showing off the three deviations in your gallery I like most. In consequence, you in turn will do this feature thing, and put me in the first slot.
"The idea is not to get a free feature, but spread the art around to everyone on DA to enjoy and love!"

Have at it. I think.

Tagged by :iconlumina121: coz reasons...

How This Works:

1. Google "Random Pokemon Generator." There are many generators out there, so pick one. I recommend the first result, but it's entirely of your choosing.
2. Set to whatever 'Dex you want (I recommend National Pokedex, but it's your choice). Keep the Type set on Any for now. Throughout the survey, you will be asked to change the Type of Pokemon and the Number of Pokemon at various times IN PARENTHESIS, so pay attention to the question! Also, do NOT exclude legendaries from your search. Makes it a little more fun. (If there are no instructions in parenthesis, keep the type on Any and the number on 1.)
3. If the Pokemon you catch along the way have evolved forms, you can make them evolve at any time—or not at all, if you choose. 
4. Start filling this bad boy out!

The Adventure Begins
