Flygon by Ruth-Tay Flygon by Ruth-Tay
Made this speedpainting while waiting on a render of my animation.

A realistic Flygon, A mix of a dragonfly and a beetle.

I hope he looks cool.

Took me 1,5 hour.

Pokémon (c) Nintendo

Looks like Vibrava, but it's still impressive

Hello. I admire your drawing form. The main reason that I want to comment on this is that someone has claimed your work as their own:…. If this other user is actually you, sorry for wasting your time.

You didn't waste my time at all. Thanks for letting me know :) I filed a report and told the person she should not post other people work but only her own.

Very creepy but cool. I love this! :D

This needs to be in the game!
Flygon should still evolve into its dragon-like form if leveled up, for fans who prefer the original appearance. But teaching Vibrava AncientPower should evolve it into this bug-form, like the cases with Mamoswine and Tangrowth. Both forms would have respective typing as well: Dragon/Ground and Dragon/Bug.

at first glance i thought it was yanmega, but flygons much cooler, his shiny was a disappointment, and i agree at least he shouldnt be ground type at all

Your version of Flygon is very different, but I like it a lot. The Flygon family have insect features to them so this version makes a lot of sense.

But... what about the dragony goodness?
Rasec-Wizzlbang Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
It still bothers me that flygon isn't a bug/dragon type.

Why isn't there a dislike button on this site
zarLizzard Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
Because it isn't meant to cater to dicks such as yourself.
InfiniteContinues Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2012
Wow. Everyone is allowed to dislike something. I guess when hitler is around, you think anyone that wants to dislike him is a dick.

Things shouldn't be popular for the stupid reason that they are. It isn't fair on anyone else.

ironmaiden22 Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2012
cuz it's designed to counter haters. even if you don't like WHAT was drawn, would it kill you to admire the skill it was drawn with? she did a pretty damn good job, and you KNOW it. and if not then you sir are blind.
InfiniteContinues Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2012
Flygon isn't an insect. And dosen't have any insect features at all.

Ruined my favorite pokemon.

You're a dick.
Ruth-Tay Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2012  Professional Filmographer
You are right its a ground dragon type. I am aware of that. But it looks like a dragonfly, its pre evolution looks like dragonfly and the one before looks like an ant. It does indeed have insect features. You can read the bulbapedia page about it if you want: [link] Thats why I based this realistic look on a dragon fly. Its my own interpetation and you may have otherwise, but this doesn't mean what I did is a bad thing. I'm very sure there are hundreds of other Illustrations of flygon you do like.
Spartan0214 Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2012
Actually Flygon was based on the adult form of the antlion, but I like your version alot. :) It looks great and so do your other dragon drawings

Wow, wow, WOW! *__*
This is sooo freakin awesome, I LOVE it! I always like it when artists draw Pokémon more realtistic. And I wish Flygon would look like that in the games! xD And yes, it looks incredibly COOL!

littlemisshufflepuff Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'm not a huge fan of dragon-types, but if I had to pick a favorite, it would definitely be Flygon. Why? Because it looks like a giant insect of skull-caving awesomeness, and I prefer insects to dragons anyway. :)
TheOutlander37 Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2011  Student Digital Artist
This is awesome. I think Flygon should be a bug/dragon type. It would be awesome just like this painting! ^_^

Draconic-Fox Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2010
Hmm ... It's really well done and such, but what would you do for yanmega then?
Ninzo Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2010  Student Filmographer
What a beauty <3
I envy people that can speedpaint.
kamrya Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2010
Awesome painting! It reminds me more of Yanmega. ^-^
taylorem Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2010  Student General Artist
WOW. That is so much cuter in the game. 8D

Nevertheless, this painting is just amazing. 1.5 hours? Incredible! The details and shading is awesome and I just love the way you've taken something and totally made it your own. Brilliant!!!

That is awesome. Besides the fact that dragonflies,Beetles and Flygon are awesome. This is a great realistic rendition. I love the shell wings.
