Chesnaught [Alternate palette] by Haychel Chesnaught [Alternate palette] by Haychel
Chesnaught is the final evolution of Chespin~ I don't really like its original palette so I changed it to Chespin/Quilladin palette~ Which one do you prefer more? :3

Hmmm... is hard to say which one i like better. I think this one flows with the prevos more, but Tag365 has a point... id say i like them about equal.

This actually looks a lot like shiny Chesnaught! O: Shiny Chesnaught
I do prefer it to the regular color scheme! ^-^

Well, the reason Chesnaught was pale is because Chespin's line was based on a knight, a hedgehog, the life cycle of a chestnut.

 

Chespin - little hedgehog with green spiky chestnut surrounding. If you look at its back, you see a small circle

 

Quilladin - bigger hedgehog. The circle at the back of Chespin's head is where its face would go, as it had more armor on that side. The chestnut armor also expanded, which is what actual chestnuts do when they're almost ripe.

 

Chesnaught - huge hedgehog. The unripened or premature chestnut itself is brown and the outer covering is green, which is why Chespin and Quilladin are their respective colors. Chesnaught's color came from it being fully grown and after a chestnut is fully grown and ripened, it splits in two and has the pale color.

I love this, aaa.
If this was his color palette I definitely would have chose him.

The original design has way too much tan and it looks yucky.

I do like this color better.  I've always gone with the Water-starter in the games, but since Chespin is the FIRST mammalian Grass-starter (literally EVERY Grass starter has been reptilian), I was like GOTTA CHOOSE HIM!

You're right, the color palette is a bit off. I also think the horizontal lines on its body are a little weird. I suppose they're emant to look like a chainmail, but it could have been executed better by Sugimori.

Good artwork. But when it comes to this Pokemon Evo-line. Basically, it went from Pokemon to Digimon. lol imo

Hello. I've looked upon your work for a certain amount of time already, but, following the design of chesnaught and the presentation of your artwork, i would very like to submit a request. But since it's my first time actually doing a request for an artwork, and not knowing properly where and how exactly i should submit it, i figured that i'll just try here and see the result - if you're interested of course.

But let's start with the context. First time Chestnaught design's was revealed, as much as his name, an instant image reminiscent of another universe popped into my mind : [url=images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__c… Pattern Terminator "Dreadnought" armor of Warhammer 40.000 universe's Legion Astartes[/url]. (if i didn't screw up the link, the image should appear via the link thus provided. If not... well f*ck.)

My request would be : could you draw another artwork of Chesnaught that would take the chainmail ornament and shoulder design of the Terminator armor, and re-working as you see fit to adapt it to the pokemon design ? It could become the most badass thing ever. Even if this answer is no, then you can erase this post. I won't be a bother anymore.

Anyway, splendid work. Your drawing style is still a wonder to see.

I kinda prefer these colors for Chesnaught over the actual ones. When I first saw the final evolutions for the X and Y starters, I didn't think they would be official, because they looked nothing like their previous forms (the only exception being Delphox). I hope in the next generation, or in ANY future generation for all I care, they could fix this.

 

I could list a few other examples like Torchic's evolution line, but the fans and I can agree that this is the most prominent.

I love its design, though I agree that it's palette is very unfitting as well as completely unnecessary. They seriously should've kept its colors the same as before with only a few minor differences.

When Quilladin evolves into Chesnaught, he's suddenly almost white! :o (Eek)
This is better. <3

I prefer the brown color of the body but the shell's color in the official design makes more sense since Chespin's line is based on a chesnut and chesnuts go from green to pale white when they get older. I don't mind the official colors now since I'm used to them.

It takes quite a bit to get used to haha, I guess that's always the case for new generations oh well~ =3= I'm still icky about how pale it looks~ I understand it is based on reality, but still, it makes Chesnaught like nerd that sits in the house all day hahaha! I like the shiny version more, I guess~

I definitely prefer these colors over the ones they actually gave it.  :)  I really like this- I chose Chespin as my starter for X (Fennekin for Y), and it's kind of adorable when he smiles.  A tough brute who's still kinda silly.

i think this should have been the coloration, or quilladin have some white...though i wish they didn't put a turtle shell on him, kinda through me off; but he's growing on me, same goes for greninja and delphox, who i wish kept the bubbles instead of a tongue and delphox went back to four legs...
but yeah, they are growing on me as i accept them to be official
