Commission - Kyle And Mega Gardevoir
Really glad i got this done for thalassophilouswitch and i’m really happy how it turned out. To explain M. Gardevoir from before, here’s my extract from the sketch
the basic explanation is that she is a cross between an orchid mantis, a lions mane jellyfish, and partial human qualities. I wanted it to feel natural, but still ethereal, like a fairy should be.
when they mega evolve, the ‘skirt’ produces these massive ‘dress’ of fleshy frills that are used as sensory organs. Essentially it increases its power by being able to sense even the tiniest of brainwaves, changes in air currents and movements from nearby opponents. It also secondarily functions as a way to deliver more oxygen to the brain. Like jellyfish, these frills are so thin that they can directly absorb oxygen from around it, which goes to its increased heart size (the ‘open’ section on the chest)
This means massive power boosts to its psychic abilities and my thinking is that its so powerful now that it doesn’t really need to move much, so the ‘gown’ doesn’t slow it more than it can handle.
Straight onto the next one tomorrow if I can!
