Very good work:pat:!Good shadowing,good lighting,really nice background and the atmosphere seem mysterious.
The Dragonades look like they are...sort of....hypnotism!
Your vision and its result is AMAZING indescribable and unbelievable!
Really good work. Next time add a few clouds if you want to do it a little more mysterious, but also a full moon is just fine!:iconbigheartplz:

I like the way you draw the sea and the light on it but I think you should add little illumination on the edges and tops
and more shade on land.
Also the moon is pretty amazing and the stars seem real
Well done!!:love:
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
54 out of 57 deviants thought this was fair.

I love this piece because of its double meaning whether intentional or not, (though I believe intentional). I wouldn't have even caught it if it wasn't for the title, Conception. The Dragonairs seemed to be hypnotized by the moon and it seems their only thought is to get to it. The implication that they are sperm and the moon is an egg is quite a wonderful one.

Not to mention how mesmerizing the color scheme is, and how fluid the whole piece is. I'm always amazed when you can show something glowing and this is a perfect example of how it makes a painting even more interesting.

My favorite pokemon is Lucario! I also roleplay as one who wanders the world and universe to be stronger and wiser! I even built my own ship called the A.U.R.A-120!

Dragonair is a longstanding member of my dream team, which also includes Ninetales, Jolteon, Articuno, Serperior, and Mew.
OratheRiolu Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
My favorite Pokémon has always been Flygon. Did you know that since Butterfree is my second favorite and Flygon my favorite, my favorite Pokémon is not dragon like Flygon's type says? It is in fact, bug, as both are in the bug egg group... Sorry for the random Pokémon know it all knowledge...
ikari-ken Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2013
My favourite Pokemon is defintily Charizard, but right after that it's also Dragonair :D and then Dragonite ň.ó
Nice job you've done there! The picture looks totally pretty *-*

My favorite regular pokemon is Umbreon. My favorite legendary from the 4th gen is Dialga. I also like Groudon, Zekrom, and Mewtwo.

i have one but what does it evolve into? i keep leveling it up (or trying to) but it wont evolve
LadyAnatar Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
You've probably figured this out by now, but it evolves into Dragonite at level 55.

And I love this picture. It's very beautiful, and the feel to it is very peaceful and silent, while at the same time, it has an icy clarity to it that I find fascinating.
Defgon Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
actualy i havnt played it in a while and i havnt even gotten close to that lvl with it. my highest one is a 80 something which is charizard and hes the only one up that high since it is the pokemon i started the game with
LadyAnatar Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
I haven't played for a while either! Bad me.

I actually have several games, but I think my FireRed Charizard is about level 80. (For the record, Charizards are awesome!)

Best of luck!
Defgon Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Charizard is my fav and thz
honeyfizz14 Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist

Amazing scenario of the flight of dragonairs <3

While I do like Dragonite, this time, I may be giving my Dragonair an Evolite (if I get one :D)
HeiKurashi Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2012
This is beautiful. Dragonair is by far my favourite pokemon.
UglyTree Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist

Okay, that's done. Yes, I adore dragonair. One of my fav pokemon ever. :D

You wouldn't believe how hard I'm laughing right now. x'D
+1 internet to you, sir or madam. :)
red-stained-december Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Dragonair was one of my favourites too! Oh, but my absolute favourite had to be Eevee. The diversity of the pokemon is what I love about it. Being a person with MPD, it really connects to me. They're all the same, yet so vastly different.
UseTheBrakes Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2012
Dragonair is really has a beautiful form. Dragonite looks WAY different, but we all know the video. My favorite Pokemon are Togepi and Gardevoir. Togepi was my favorite since he was first shown, but Gardevoir...she snuck up on me...
welltheponiesmademe Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2012
This picture is so pretty.
And my fav pokemon would be bulbasaur.
Then Banette.
Dragonair is my third fav.
AnajiNeff Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2012  Student General Artist
I've always loved Dragonair, never much liked what it evolved into though.

I was into pokemon for a while as a kid, but even now I still have a fondness for them because of their intrigueing fantastical designs... it's awesome to see an artist take advantage of that!

Belphegor95 Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2012
dragon pokemon, especially dratini and Dragonair, are my favorite! >w< this is really beautiful~
Abrax47 Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2012
So long and thanks for all the fish. That came to my head since Dragonair are usually found in water. and jumping into the sky at night is whats reminding me of the Dolphins.
Onlynameleft2pick Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2012
Dragonair! :heart:
lisajong2 Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
i love this! the colors are beautiful and i love your style:D
Sunlight-Soleil Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2012
This is absolutely beautiful. The colors are serene and it is a very striking image. The Dragonairs look sinuous and ethereal as the moon seems to pull them in.
Edeferent Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2012
Just beautiful Dragonair.
kaimele555 Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2012  Student General Artist
Ahhh, I love Dragonair :heart: This piece is beautiful (: Great work.
