Absol by blueharuka Absol by blueharuka
this Absol doesn't look too pleased about being chosen for a battle.

i tried doing something a little semi-realistic with it, i'm not even going near trying to do full on realism, i find it weird how when people do realistic pokemon everything is either a cat or some kind of lizard. :/

I really like your depiction of Absol here bluehakura! Somewhere between a canine and a feline, which works for this Pokemon. Well done; favoriting!

Thanks!

I was never really fond of the 'everything is strictly a cat' method that everyone seems to bestow on a lot of mammal-like Pokemon.
but I gotta be fair and say that some of them really do have cat-like qualities that you just can't ignore, so it's best to just make 'em be both!

I especially feel this way for the legendary beasts.
many people see them all as completely feline...I respect their way of seeing them like that, but in all honesty, seeing a cheetah/leopard Suicune makes me cringe so much it makes me want to vomit (it's over-exaggerating, yes, but I just CAN'T see that. ever.) it's obvious that Raikou is a tiger, Entei I've always seen as a lion/mastiff dog cross and Suicune is always pure canine to me.

so yeah, a cat, a dog and a catdog. :D

Yeah, I always saw Suicune to be more doglike that catlike as well. Hmm, a Mastiff interpretation of Entei makes sense too as you mention it! Short muzzle and floppy jowls perhaps. Or a giant Persian XD
