Dialga by JoJoesArt Dialga by JoJoesArt
Dialga, holy keeper of time,
thou, who wanderst through the eternal realms of history,
stop by me, just for one moment,
and give that second a glimmer of magic...


YAAY! Drew Pokemon again! ^^ This is a collab between me and my sister :iconpixiecold: If you didnt already visit her gallery, then do so now, she is totally worth watching!!! :D

And please give her version of the painting a favourite too, if you fav my version! ^^


This picture was drawn in PS CS4, about 20 hours... It was so much fun to paint and Dialga is also one of my favourite Pokemon! Tell me, what is your favourite legendary Pokemon? :D

-- favs and comments are highly appreciated!! :D :heart: --

Ok, so the good stuff! First of all, the shading on this amazing! I love the soft little touches here and there. The water is beatiful, and very realistic. I feel like I could just jump into this peice. Dialga has this elegant toughness to him. However, I think he may be a little skinny. The crest by the base of his tail should probaly be moved up a little closer to his hips. But besides that, I can't spot anything wrong with this piece. The background is beatiful! Love the glowy effect of Dialga's body. Your best peice yet!
What do you think?

This really amazing. The lighting and you technique is something thats for sure. You made Dialga seem almost as if he was real. I am almost speechless at how beautiful this image is. the way the moon reflects of the water really makes everything stand out, and the norhtern lights ( sorry i can think of what they are really called) are so pretty. Dialga really looks like the all powerful dragon pokemon he is meant to be. I love the new style you gave him. he looks so strong and majestic. Your did a really amzing job with this image

Hot damn.

What brush do you use, man? All your work is wonderful, and the time put into them is surely well-spent. The only thing I cannot help but wonder with all these great artists is; the brush? It doesn't look like you apply texture to anything, but what settings do you need to achieve the realism in your work?

Dialga's leg kinda reminds me of the Monado from Xenoblade Chronicles with the symbol and the bright blue light emitting from the center.

Fireshrike Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Amazing picture. The designs and feathers you added to Dialga's original design plus the misty effects on the picture make it look very mystical, something truly worth of a guardian of Time. Terrific job. :D

My favorite legendary? It'd probably have to be Dialga, actually. Reshiram, Rayquaza, Lugia and Giratina are also favs. ^_^
