All time fav: Lugia by Twarda8 All time fav: Lugia by Twarda8
Day 31 (I don't bother with order) of pokeddex challenge: All Time Favourite pokemon, Lugia.
I joined: the challenge, the urge to draw Realistic Lugia, eager to paint something (anything), need to update DeviantArt's gallery and need to upload a new video on my YouTube Channel. So I've got 5 in one.

A 2 hours speedpainting, done, as usual, with GIMP.
Sketch is avaiable here: [link]

That's a cool take. So what do you think is the way he flies, if he does fly?

Some kind of gliding, I think, could be possible. Just like Mantine. I can't think of anything as fleshy as hands to become a great wing. As I like the hands idea (I'm not a fan of feathers or bat like wings in Lugia) I decided to make them more like fins and make Lugia more marine animal than a flying animal. The only thing I can think about it's Flying type is that, it could evolve from flying ancestors, that were diving deeper and deeper, longer and longer to seek food. Or something like that.

Interesting. Maybe it can glide a little (or for long, relatively to it's size) like the flying fish who can jump out of he water and fly a few seconds before diving back into the ocean?

I think that's how Mantine works.

The more you know => trial and error is replaced by knowledge => the faster you get.

no, Lugia isn't a nice poké you can pet :XD:. excellent work. It's good to see a new one of your realistic series =D

That's aint a new one of my realistic series. That's an aberration of/from it. The main reason wasn't the series but the pokeddex (and sudden inspiration hit). It would be a full body fully detailed painting, if it were Realistic Lugia. Here you have a speedpainting with focus on the head.
