So apologies for my week of absence, I had a spontaneous holiday (a last minute deal for an all inclusive week in Majorca – who could resist?) and therefore didn’t have time to schedule any nail art.
Dragonite annoys me to no ends, he’s my least favourite pokemon for several reasons.
1) It looks like a fat charizard. I mean they’re both the same colours and mostly the same shape.
2) Dratini and Dragonair are blue, elegant and cute so how on earth do they eventually evolve in to that fat, orange Charizard imposter.
3) What happens to the gems that have been evolving; dratini starts off with one on his head, dragonair develops two on his tail and one under his chin and then dragonite… none, where do they go?
4) Just no. I just don’t see it, it doesn’t make sense, something went wrong. It could have looked so much cooler, keeping with the serpentine body and blueish hues it could have looked great but no.
Is anyone else with me on this? Or do I just sound a little crazy now…
So the legendary birds from the original series form a trio, and it actually explains this in their names; articuno (1), Zapdos (2), Moltres (3). How cool is that?
I wasn’t too impressed with how Articuno turned out, I wish I could have conveyed more of it’s natural grace and beauty. Instead I’ve got a sort of pudgy pigeon who can’t wait to fly off the nail…
So I think Omanyte is so adorable, it’s just a shame that it evolves into a hellish looking creature that will haunt your dreams. Omastar does not seem like the kind of thing you’d want to meet either a) in the sea or b) at night, actually can we just go with option c) at all.
Being created from a fossil, I thought it would be cool to include some in the background so I used some shell water decals. I think it works!
So I had a few ideas for ditto, such as having him transformed mimicking other pokemon the only tell tale sign being the beady eyes. But then I thought it might be quite fun to make him in to a repeating pattern, and I think it turned out quite well! It’s a totally wearable design, right?
So I’m actually a big fan of Magikarp. Not because he evolves in to super powerful Gyarados, but just because he’s a fish Pokemon! And he’s sorta cute too yeah?
So this guy featured heavily in my pokemon card deck when I was younger. As in I had four Pinsir cards, which was the maximum of any one card you can have in a deck, and a whole heap load of grass energy to support his moves. There were obviously other cards and I can’t really remember if it was a particularly effective deck, but I still fondly remember Pinsir.
So unfortunately all I can ever see when I look at magmar is a duck on fire, but I did wonder if that’s how it somehow got it’s name – magma+mallard? Who knows, it’s a silly looking pokemon anyway.
