Ordinary Day in Frigid Waters by rajewel Ordinary Day in Frigid Waters by rajewel
Needed to take a quick break from all the commissions and draw something quick and loose. The DMAP for this week is wailmer, so I used that as an excuse to continue with the poke... whatever these are. This time it features icy water pokemon. Fewer species than last time but there wasn't much else to include. Piplup just wasn't working so it got shafted. I know whales normally calf in warmer waters, lets just say its an older one thats migrated back.

In other news, I've come to realize that although there are a ton of water type pokemon there are actually very few fish pokemon, and of those most are fresh water o_O. Pokemon where are all the salt water fish. There has to be more in the oceans than just tentacool....

Lol, this actually only took like 4 hours.

Yea, but they're more tropical/warm water fish and I didn't think they'd fit well in an cold water environment which is why I chose to leave them out. Another picture maybe.

It's hard to rationalize fish pokemon out of water, I imagine that might have lead to a conscious effort to pull back from producing an abundance of them.

You should do a pre-historic version of these, with dinosaur-like pokemon :D

thats an interesting idea. I'd wanted to do one of these for different environments/types but I've kinda gotten side tracked with commissions unfortunately, but I'll keep that in mind.

Yes, I had contemplated him, but for this series I'm not including fifth gen pokemon since they're so geographically isolated from the 1-4th gen. I may make a seperate series at some point for 5th gen.

:iconsliverbolt:
Sliverbolt Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2012
well makes sense
glad your open to making 5th gen pokemon
havent seen much since Snivy and Oshawott
thought you may not like the current gen

rajewel Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I've actually got quite a few 5th gen in my gallery. There's druddigon, Zekrom and Reshiram, Oshawott, Dewott, Snivy, Tepig, Sawsbuck, Deino, zweilous, zoroark, Whimsicott, Galvantula, Excadrill, Swoobat, Woobat, blitzle, Munna, Gigalith, Pendror, Patrat, Herdier, Pidove, Liepard, Pansear, Pansage, and Panpour.

Its actually kinda scary/sad when its typed out like that o_x
