realistic dragon

Not sure if i ever posted this, but i found him again and i doubt i’ll have time to finish him.

Alolan exeggutor! The basic thought behind him was that the main body was an adult and the extra ‘heads’ were actually the young exeggcute before they drop off to form a cluster of their own. the ones around the main head are known to bicker with the parent body, whereas the tail dwelling ones are quite content and friendly. Basically a living dinosaur too, with the leaves being akin to camouflage feathers as they feed on things in the canopy of Alola.

They then drop off and begin their life as a cluster, their skin going pink before they go off to reach maturity.

boop!

SUNMOON POKEDDEX DAY 11 - Favourite Normal Type: Drampa

 A PRECIOUS NORMAL TYPE DRAGON. I have been waiting for one for years and Drampa is just perfect. It looks so gentle and fluffy and lazy. I kinda made a mix of goat, sloth and great anteater here. It’s a neat design, you can do a lot with it. The goat features were the first thing that came to my mind and I personally like the idea of it having a goat face.

SUNMOON POKEDDEX DAY 18 - Favourite Dragon Type: Kommo-o

I fell behind a bit because I decided to make this one larger and more detailed. I felt like Kommo-o really deserved that. I like the design and the concept so much and the entire line is super neat. You don’t always have Pokemon lines of this high quality. Jangmo-o is super cute and it becomes this big fighting badass dragon. What’s not to love?

PokémonMorphology - Dragonite.

My second set, as it’s my favourite Pokémon. 

I worked on making this set a bit more refined, and a bit more creative. Whilst the designs out there are superb, I wanted to push for more body shape differences then simply swapping the colours. Hopefully this will flesh out a more realistic Pokémon world a bit more. 

I have attached the text to the pictures and made them a bit more scientific, as people kept deleting the flavour text, but it’s also attached below. Please don’t delete it :)

INFORMATION BELOW


COMMON DRAGONITE

The Common Dragonite is the most plentiful and registered breed found to date. It is categorised by an equal balance of wingspan, limb size and tail size, being adapted for life both on the land and at sea for extended periods of time. It is also an incredible flyer, known to rise to great heights in order to circumnavigate the globe in a relatively short amount of time.

In its common form, which can be found in lakes, rivers and other large bodies of water, Dragonite is a light orange colour, with teal membranes to its wings and yellowish antennae (which it uses to sense prey and also to perform electrical attacks). Dragonite reaches full maturity at 55 months if trained correctly, with wild specimens varying between 55 to 65 months. A creature with extreme intellect and power, it is not easily trained and is marked as a pseudo-legendary class Pokémon.

BLUE EASTERN DRAGONITE

The Eastern Blue Dragonite is found primarily in lakes and rivers and is noted for having very high special attack and special defence capabilities. Though smaller than their common counterparts, they are longer, more lithe and are considered the most elegant of the various breeds. They are not capable flyers, preferring to glide with their smaller wingspan, but are inclined to use them to surge out of bodies of water to catch prey. 

These Dragonite are the calmest and most serene of their species, boasting higher intelligence than the Common Dragonite. Along with their small wingspan and blueish colouring, they are easily spotted by their white frilled antennae that adorn the neck, leading people to mistake them for the juvenile Dragonairs that often accompany them in their pods.  Being that they often live in warmer climates, they seem slightly more resilient to ice attacks (a primary weakness of dragons) as their blood is naturally warmer overall.

CRESTED DRAGONITE

The Crested Dragonite, sometimes called the Flame Crested Dragonite, is one of the most exotic breeds of this Pokémon. Its vibrant colours set it apart from other Dragonite, along with several other differences.

As a cliff-dweller by nature, the Crested Dragonite has a much larger wingspan to body ratio than other Dragonite, capable of gliding for days at a time if required. Its feet are less webbed and have longer talons that allow it to pluck prey from the water. This also affords it more grip on its mountainous home. The crest fills with blood when the Pokémon is angered and shows off the same exotic colours that adorn the wing membranes.

Crested Dragonite are often faster than common Dragonite, as their naturally larger wings allow for them to reach heights and speeds few other winged species can match. Their downfall, however, is when they are grounded, being lighter and more fragile than their Common brethren.

MUDDY DRAGONITE

The Muddy Dragonite is known for being the most aggressive of the Dragonite breeds. Far stronger and tougher than its ocean-dwelling brethren, the Muddy Dragonite boasts exceptional defence and attack, which it sacrifices speed for.

As these creatures are often found with the ability ‘Multiscale’, (a highly sought after trait in the Dragonite species) it is no surprise that their tough, armoured hide separates them from the other breeds. Their wings are small and unsuited for long distance flights, preferring, as with other small-winged Dragonite, the use of quick bursts of speed in their swampy homes. Dwelling in murky and often shallow waters inland, the Muddy Dragonite can also be found lazing out in the afternoon sun, heating its body temperature up before it returns to the water.

This breed is often used as parental stock in order to pass on the Multiscale gene onto its offspring, weeding out the aggressive tendencies as the process goes along.

SHINY DRAGONITE

‘Shiny’ Dragonite (and its evolutionary line) are rare, but are becoming increasingly more common, as are most ‘Shiny’ Pokémon. This pigment change, whilst adored by the training public, is in fact a genetic disorder resulting from inbreeding. All too often, trainers will ‘farm’ Pokémon eggs in order to create stronger and more specialised animals, sometimes resulting in a ‘Shiny’ side effect.

The disorder, which can affect any Pokémon subjected to harsh inbreeding, can be categorised in a faint sheen on the skin (that can result in them being shunned from their social groups and parents and simply not surviving in the wild due to lack of camouflage in weaker animals) and a drastic skin colour change. Whilst considered desirable, most ‘Shiny’ Pokémon are often frail and sickly, few living as long as their uncorrupted counterparts. Pokémon breeders are advised by the government to halt this process, but with such a high demand for glamourous Pokémon, it is unlikely to stop any time soon.

GREAT OCEAN DRAGONITE

The Great Ocean Dragonite is exceptionally rare, typically spending most of their lives in the deeper areas of the ocean.

Despite being rather sluggish and poorly equipped for combat on land, the Ocean Dragonite boasts remarkable defences and HP stats, with a thick hide that only the strongest attacks can penetrate. In comparison to the Common Dragonite, the Ocean Dragonite is far more suited to life in water. Its arms and legs are more fin-like, and primarily used for steering its massive body through the water. Its wings are too small for it to fly with, considering its weight, so they are commonly used for underwater battles, where quick bursts of speed are required. A large mouth also allows for it to swallow entire schools of Goldeen, Magikarp and other fish-like Pokémon in a single gulp.

Seeing a fully grown Great Ocean Dragonite is a rare privilege. The largest known recording was at a Kanto lighthouse in 1998, where it was estimated to have been at least 30 meters long.


EDIT - added in a size chart because quite a few people were asking for one :)

Imagine: Sherlock investigating your suicide

Originally posted by kylogue

Sherlock hasn’t said a thing since they arrived at the scene, but when has he ever? When the two walked in, John recognized the body that hung on the rope as Y/n. He remembers Mycroft repeatedly mentioning the name and eventually bringing the girl with him for a visit. Y/N was a friend of the Holmes’ family, namely Mycroft and Sherlock. What worried John was as Sherlock observed the body, he didn’t show a bit of grief.

Sherlock swiftly strided to Lestrade, speaking hurriedly, “Where’s the suicide note?”

“What makes you think a note was left?”

“Please, you wouldn’t have called me if there wasn’t a note,” Sherlock rolled his eyes.

Lestrade made a face that practically said ‘well, you’re not wrong’, “Its less of a note, and more of a drawing. Take a look.” He handed Sherlock a folded paper.

Unfolding the paper, he finds a nearly realistic sketch of a dragon. It was a Chinese dragon, with short from arms and horns. Sherlock handed the paper to John and told him to come along. John quickly took a picture of it before handing it back to Lestrade, quickening his steps to catch up to Sherlock.

In the cab, Sherlock asked for Johns’ phone. She sent the picture of the 'suicide note’ to a number, along with a short message.

“Who did you just send this to?” John interrogated.

“Mycroft, of course.”

“Why?”

“Because Y/n isn’t dead, but she’s in danger.”
