Magikarp used Splash by Ruth-Tay Magikarp used Splash by Ruth-Tay
I had a busy period finishing projects. Now I've finished them I can work on my own stuff again. I thought It would be cool to do another pokemon art. This time magikarp. It's based on a Koi carp and placoderm fish. And He has to be doing his famous splash atack of course.

Took me 5 hours done in Photoshop.

Thanks for the kind comment. I see you used my dragonite as icon, that is nice too. But could you please ask me before using it. I'm mostly not difficult about these things, but I had some of my works stolen, and people have been selling my stuff without giving me any money or credit.

This is so badass for a Magikarp /w\ Love how you rendered the scales to resemble the original design yet keeping it more realistic!

You know, the thing about magikarp is that it's so looked down upon for a lot of obvious reasons, but to swim against the current to meet their destiny takes some great strength and resolve. It's really cool that you show it doing just that and also make sure it looks as amazing as it should at the same time.

The pokédex says that they are dragged down by the current tho, they don't have the strength to overcome it.. :P At least that's what I remember anyway xD

You may be right. I just like to think of the myth it was spawned from, is all.

I think I read somewhere that it could leap hugh heights. I just don't remember where.

"A long-lived Magikarp is able to utilize its immense splashing power to leap high enough to scale mountains. (...) However, it is usually overlooked by Trainers because of its perceived weakness: even in the heat of battle it will do nothing but flop around. It is not a strong swimmer, and currents in the water will sweep it downstream."

So yeah... Apparently it IS a strong fish, just not for swimming xD

Placoderm? Plecostomus/Pleco? LOL. Very nice job. I like the way you did the scales and of course the splash attack. Classic, just classic.
