While going through my drafts looking for things to add to my queue, I found this, which I’d apparently written but never posted. I feels like now is the appropriate time to do so.
I had a thought, and I am probably not the first person to notice this so please pardon me if someone else has mentioned this first BUT I am excited and want to talk about this.
So Umbreon’s markings look like a solar eclipse, right? And this makes sense, because the “umbra” is the darkest part of a shadow, and specifically during a solar eclipse, it’s the darkest part of the moon’s shadow, where the total eclipse is visible from.
What I didn’t realize until just now is that Espeon has this connection too! During a lunar eclipse, the moon doesn’t disappear. Instead, due to interference from the Earth’s atmosphere, it turns red, like the gem on Espeon’s forehead!
Apparently, the one thing I like drawing more than Pokemon is Fakemon and fusions.
It’s “fur” is actually made of wax and it drips everywhere. It’s lil’ feets click-clack on the ground wherever it goes. It will chew your shoes and then accidentally set them on fire, not recommended for inexperienced trainers.
You can change the trim by feeding it special items that change the fire color (like how you can change real fire colors depending on what chemicals you’re burning). Then it shakes off the wax and it “grows” back in the new trim. As for the hat… magic.
