swamperts by SilverMender swamperts by SilverMender
poke challenge of designing 3 different-looking pokemon based on a random pokemon

I got swampert, one of my favorite pokemon, lucky me. There’s definitely some extra-vertebrae inspiration in regards to the slight redesigning, try more realism while keeping fairly close to the original pokemon.

Anyhow, my three swamperts are:

a) Iki Iki, a pretty female that’s probably something of an attraction at themed parks or something like that

b) Seriva, my original Emerald version swampert. I swept entire teams just with her, so I thought I’d make her a hunk

c) Obo, a fatty super mellow and adorable babbu that was found as a liddle mistreated mudkip by caretakers, and evolved into a big swampert that was overfed and just drags his bulk along. my favorite one

and some first sketches to get the feel for swampert. i gave it the weird barb teeth some turtles have, just for kicks

fingers crossed for the next pokemon




ps. i went through your critiques guys! first thing morning I'll reply, thank you so much on the feedback, I'll work hard to improve!

Swampert is one of my faves too, and I just love all these interesting variations you've come up with while staying very true to the original design.

Proof that in the right hands pokemon can be an amazing thing, i appreciate when artist take a nod from real life and show how each animal/pokemon can still be different and unique in there on way albeit they're from the same genus

<3 Swampert and all the previous evolutions of it. Only game that throws me for a loop on this pokemon so far is mystery dungeon on ds. Is only one type instead of two. Is supposed to be ground/water type. :/

These are amazing :) I love the variance of characteristics between each of them that makes them distinguishable from each other :la:

Ah God all of them precious children. I love how you varied them and made them unique with the body structure and coloration while still retaining species and all. It's rare to see people portray multiple Pokemon characters of the same species that way.

Wow now truly that is skill in character design. Changing subtle things to make one type of Pokemon look like three different characters. Awesome job. <3
