Happy Xmas, Winged-Wasabi by Trueform Happy Xmas, Winged-Wasabi by Trueform
This is a present for my good friend :iconwinged-wasabi: who requested that I choose one of my favourite designs from his gallery to draw in my style. I love chess and chess-based fakemon, so I chose these three, which I have always really loved the designs of. Here are th eoriginal designs:



I hope you don't mind that I adjusted some details a little to suit my style! Have a great xmas and new year :D

These designs are copyright to :iconwinged-wasabi: and only he may use them.

I couldn't stop myself from giving this all-time complete five stars :D As much as I am happy of getting this gift and I could just scream: "AWESOOOOME!" in the comments, I'm actually going to write a critique on this gift ;)

Let's start with Pawnuo. With his defensive stance and angry look, no one would ever think to mess with him. The message he sends is: "You take one more step and I'll destroy you." The split colors are really well done and the glossiness of the black part really makes the smoothness of the design appear better.

As for the Bravalier, his confident position and the outstretched arm pointing towards the opponent makes him look royal and regal. The shining helm effect is great, and as you said in the description, I can see you made a few little modifications to make the white and black more balanced and I have no problem with those changes. I can totally imagine him saying: "Bring it, scum."

Now on to my favorite of this line, my dear Rookrin. I had always liked his eccentric and somewhat dumb grin, and you made it go to a whole new level. I mean, just look at those extremely pointy teeth! I like the changes you made to his eye, however his face looks more like a zombie one instead of a chess fakemon :P But that doesn't matter, Rookrin IS supposed to be intimidating. The three-fingered hand looks really nice and I wish I could've drawn that when I was creating my chess line. The tower part on his head is also very well achieved, it really looks like it's in 3D and has perspective.

Also, the background is an excellent choice, representing something royal, and the whole chess line makes me think of guards, sentries that are protecting their kingdom and maybe their king and queen?

Now that this whole critique is finished, I want to say a big thank you to you, Dave. You had tons and tons of presents to do, and yet you had time to do them all and, plus, they're the peak of high quality :D I'm really happy to even have met you on dA and I don't need anything more than that, you're much more than any present I could ever have. Thank you so much!
