Like a Dragon by Chiakiro Like a Dragon by Chiakiro
I wanted to finally practice painting something other than fur, like scales, so here's Ren. It had its challenges, but I learned a lot from it :D

For those who haven't seen my nuzlocke comic, yes, that's a leg on a Gyarados. Deal with it.

I personally love the way you draw him it's pretty cool, the legs and the face are very unique. He has to be one of my favorite characters in your comic.

A leg, well, I can live with that.....


The work on the scales is amazing, the coloring is flawless, excellent shading[as always], and good detail on the head! You have got to be one of the best artists i've ever met!

I never noticed how similar Suicune, Articuno, and Gryados' crests were until just now. 

I like how you've given him limbs.

So I know they're teeeeeeeechnically not supposed to have limbs but I think this is one of the best looking Gyradoseseseses I've seen.  Nice work with the iridescence on the scales!

I love how you did the scales. It looks so smooth and realistic in my opinion. Did you paint them all manually or did you use an texture or a brush or did you combined it?

I painted them one by one with the default brush.

My computer has two screens. A couple of weeks ago, I put Cheza's painting on the right one... But the left one was still empty. And now you draw this! I'm so happy!

Lowkey I still want a Raze wallpaper. Wait. Didn't you draw him already?

You made the best design for Gyarados. I do wonder why they're Water/Flying-type when they're better for a Water/Dragon-type. I love the designs of your Pokemon in your Nuzlocke. Next up, Netane or Tiko?(Cute name for a beastly Rhyhorn)

That is because in gen 1 it would have been over powered, for a Pokemon that evolves at level 20 and is so easy to find.

:iconparousia45:
Parousia45 Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2016
Yeah, it would be overpowered. Too bad they don't learn any Flying-type moves to make use of their good attack stat.
