inku art

consider:

in journal 3 when ford is talking about his time in the portal he says ‘these tatoos’ are among his greatest regrets

note the plural

i humbly submit he has more than just the one he drew

and i further submit that literally all of them are smash mouth lyrics

My first photoshop picture ever! I thought it could be a good chance to try something new with another “skin” for Inku. I still have many things to polish but since it’s my first attempt, I’m not going to complain.~ I’ll be making a new promo soon too!

What if his eyes just always did that tho…

protip: the fastest way to get me to like an adult male character is to put a small child near them and have them immediately get afflicted with a bad case of THE DADS

hi dark tower fandom i’m halfway through The Gunslinger and i have opinions about Roland Dadschain

Got in a discussion with some friends about Lucario’s design and how I really Do Not Like It. So they challenged me to redesign it, and I did! @bogleech i feel like this might be relevant to you.

(It goes without saying that Pokemon is for everyone so if you’re a person who likes canon Lucario and how it looks, more power to you, you and I have no beef).

My first course of action was making it look more organic, so I got rid of those weird globular things on its head and the plastic-y tail and replaced both with shapes that are still blocky but do give the impression of fur. I got rid of the odd-looking stripe ‘masks’ for actual masks, to call back to the fighter imagery and also Anubis (since everyone insists Lucario is based on Anubis but its design doesn’t communicate that well at all). In addition Lucario is a guardian and fights for justice, so the masks are intended to give it just the barest hint of a superhero vibe.

Its other stripes I replaced with markings that are supposed to call back to both boxing tape and mummy wraps, again to point toward its two cited inspirations. 

The steel typing is another thing Lucario didn’t communicate well at all in its canon form, so I gave it cuffs as a Riolu and full on metal gloves as a Lucario. These cuffs, gloves, and even its bones are made of a special metal that resonates with Aura power, allowing Lucario to use it with greater force and precision than any other pokemon. As it evolves it even goes blind, relying fully on its Aura-sensing abilities to ‘see’ the world around it. Its gloves are just as much a sensory organ as they are meant for fighting. 

It also has a great sense of

BALANCE
