Dialga by PixieCold Dialga by PixieCold
Dialga, holy keeper of time,
thou, who wanderst through the eternal realms of history,
stop by me, just for one moment,
and give that second a glimmer of magic...


YAAY!! ^^ This is a collab between me and my Brother SanguisGelidus!!!!

This picture was drawn in PS CS4, about 20 hours... It was so much fun to paint and Dialga is also one of my favourite Pokemon! Tell me, what is your favourite legendary Pokemon?

-- favs and comments are highly appreciated!! --

I think it is good over all,with the coloration and the background especially.However Dialga is more blocky or square and is a bit more stocky,an example would be the neck:in the movies and games Dialga has a thicker neck and a thicker body overall,giving it a diamond like look, squarish in shape,bulky and stocky.Not to mention the fact that the fringes on its neck weren't their in the movies and games,but this look is good if your going for a breath-taking,awe-inspiring, fierce, and over-all more realistic appearance,which the back-ground appears to hint at the case being so. Over all, this art-work of the Pokemon Dialga is very good and makes one think that Dialga or something in the background is going to move.
What do you think?

I think that overall this is a beautiful portrait and I can tell it must have taken a lot of time because there are a lot of small details you put in that make it so fascinating. However I do wonder why the back right leg joint is showing, unlike how the front right isn't. I'm not a huge pokemon follower so please correct me if that's the way it's supposed to be. I do love how detailed the mane is (yet again correct me if it has a different name) and how you blended the colors off of it like it's illuminating the sky. You payed a lot of attention to the background too which makes it look even better. The detail of the spikes which adds a lot of contrast to the soft and beautiful colors of the backgound. I love it.

Well, I can't say much good about this that hasn't already been said in the critiques, but this is REALLY beautiful.

If I could get your permission (and that of the other artist this belongs to) to use this artwork in a video of a Temporal Tower remix I'm working on, I would REALLY appreciate it. Both of you would be given full credit, and links back to both of your pages would be included.

my fave legend is Entei. I always thought it was so cool, even as a kid. I remember on the card it said its roar was like thunder. so amazing. Dialga is beautifully drawn and colored. excellent job.

you should try to do more stuff like this instead of just one object like eyes or a person, do a full scene
