Dator vitae

Life giver

​He is such a beautiful Pokemon, and has such a mystical aura to him...  like a pagan deity.
... I know that as a legendary, Xerneas is genderless but I feel more comfortable using male pronouns because antlers are usually a male thing.

I wanted to make that life-bringer theme clear, notice how the ashes turn to leaves or petals when they pass through his antlers? no? Yeah... it's a bit hard to notice and my scanner is to blame... that HD piece of ... plastic... is a bit hard to operate and I have no idea what I'm doing half of the time... 

Pokemon X really surprised me, I wasn't expecting the story to be so deep and engaging! it's now ranked among my favourite Pokemon games of all time.

FirielQuite pretty. ^_^ I like the overall color scheme, and the dawn-glow on the horizon, and the way you did the blue sheen on the darker parts of his body and the little texture details on the grass. ^_^
E must be strong to hold up the weight of such a large mass of antlers.

FirielYou're welcome. :)
I did recently watch Secret of the Unknown online because somebody recommended it for its art. And it was... Fun. Not necessarily going on my All Time Favorites list, but pretty and reasonably-plotted and it had some real pathos. And afterwards I felt mysteriously compelled to draw Entai, but my first try on him didn't turn out too well. <.<

AntaresOh man! that's one of the best Pokemon movies around :D
and Entei is EPIC! I love all that fiery lion-dog thing going on with him. 

Still if you ever want to get into the fandom I'd recomend the games rather than the movies, but it's up to you of course :)

FirielWell, I don't know if I'm diving straight in, so much as developing an appreciation. ;) And I've never been a lot of good at games, plus having limited resources right now, so investigating film is simpler for me. But I'll keep the recommendation in mind if I ever get an opportunity. :)

IcalatariI LOVE this. I realize after reading your description that the character design isn't yours.... Forgive me, I realize that for some people, not getting into Pokemon is equivalent to how I feel about people not getting into Lord of the Rings. I repent of my nerd sin. Anyway, I love how the antlers go from cold colors to warm at the back, and that's the way the leaves turn as well --- dead to live. If you hadn't put a description there, I'd have said somebody in an anime had a surprisingly beautiful dream. :P AH! CRAYON??! Surely that's too soft for crayon, you didn't use any pastels? Wow....

AntaresHehe don't worry, no nerd sin was commited here :) in fact, I'm actually really glad that someone from outside the fandom liked his design, it goes to show how well thought of it is and that's just the reason why it inspired me to draw this. 
Nope, no pastels, just some wooden coloring pencils and a TON of time :) thank you so much for the comment!

PS: Lord of the Rings is AMAZING! Tolkien is a genius! and I'd love to get more into it but I'm a very slow reader and I have a really bad memory for names and chronologies so even though I love it I won't be ale to hold a reasonable conversation with hardcore fans so I just lay low and admire from afar ^^
