Before the Storm by rajewel Before the Storm by rajewel
Lol more working back into things stuff. So have a froakie this time. I felt like giving it bubbles instead of fluff because i can and i wanted bubbles : P That and I secretly like frogs.

Anyway have more pokemon and now back to more productive things.

I thought this was a Frogadier because of the bubble scarf.. Froakie doesn't have that as clearly imo. but Frogadier probably wasn't announced at the time of this pic

This is fantastic. Exactly how I picture Froakie in my head.

I'd fave it a hundred times if I could!

I'm not a fan of Froakie but I really like what you did with it.

I love frogs. :D

This picture really stands out to me, the background is amazing and the froakie looks so happy and pretty. The painting just really works well as a whole - maybe it's the composition?

I'm not sure I'd use the word "ugly" but I'm not terribly fond of it. Its really far from the original feel of the eeveelutions and I don't like how girly the new ones have been (particularly this one). Though I suppose if its like some sort of normal type evolution of a female eevee who you dress up/max beauty/win first place in some sort of show with I could kinda understand the design. But so for I'm pretty =_= with it.

it just doesn't look like an eeveelution :( And I don't want to sound like one of those people who only like 1st gen because I'm not but this thing just doesn't look like it should be an eeveelution... There are so many better ways they could've approached it that would've been 1,000 times better.

have you changed your opinion on Sylveon now that you're played with X/Y? I never really had a big opinion on it so nothing changed for me

evanlley Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2014
I still think its ugly, and doesn't look like an eeveelution enough. And I never used it because I just can't put all that effort into having an eevee evolve into a sylveon XD

I think the fluff is supposed to be foam. There's actually a frog that will kick up foam to make a nest for its eggs. But anyway, I really like this picture! The textures and lighting are just gorgeous. :D

Love the expression. The "Fluff" being bubbles would make sense, I always saw it as snow due to frogs not really having fluff.. Hair maybe but not fluff. xD

Love it~<3

Although we already have a water/fighting frog thing I think that'd be a cool dynamic too (given the sort of attacks the starters used in the demo vid). But who knows this is pokemon we're dealing with. Oh the trolling if they made them all part fighting -throws hands in the air-

I thought that it could be part poison, like a poison dart frog, but no one seems to agree

Real frogs use a nest of foam bubbles to help protect their babies so they do not dry out.
So the white "fluff" on Froakie is probably inspired by this.

Froakie has bubbles on its back, not fur. Some frogs make foam bubble nests and bubbles incorporated in the design pays homage to that.

:iconsusiron:
Susiron Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ahhhh
It still looks like, and I think is fur, however. It might be meant to resemble the bubbles, but it doesn't look like bubbles. It looks more like a mane or cloud.
And that's why I like how the artist interpreted them as actual, clear and free-form bubbles.
