Ok, that out of the way, this is an amazing, and in my mind, accurate portrayal of that menacing Houndoom. Your vision here is nothing short of impeccable. The originality of the artwork is fairly low, but that's only because it's a Pokemon, so take that one with a grain of salt, would ya? I can see everything, from the hairs on his tail to the sharp tips of his claws to the multiple layers of his horns. And the background is nothing short of sublime, itself! As for the impact of the artwork. It is a dark, hellish take on one of my all-time favorite Pokemon, and I love it for that. You deserve every single word of praise for this.
he's more like hellhound! i don't even like pokemon anymore but i find this guy pretty neat! i don't want to look at him as a pokemon. but as some awesome demon dog. lately i've been busy downloading pictures of canine monsters so that's why i'm attracted to this one the most.
