EDIT 24 OCT 2012: asdgfbajgklb THANK YOU FOR THE DD~~~~~ Thank you :iconcharmandarz: and thank you :iconkasumicr:!! Thank you~~~~ ;u;:iconthanksfeatureplz:

Touched up a lil bit as well since this picture has got a DD~ Mainly fixed the lil shadow on its "crown" and added some more feathers on Ho-oh's right wing.

Daily Deviation

Given 2012-10-24
The Seven-color Warrior by *Haychel ( Suggested by TommyGK and Featured by alexandrasalas )
:iconpoison-stripes:
This is just really amazing. Ho-Oh looks very lively and the shading and lighting makes him really pop out from the background. You can actually see his marvelous plumage, which a good majority of fan art doesn't do, and the only other time I can remember Ho-Oh being this vibrant was in SoulSilver, and this piece here looks marvelous. I just simply love this. You can really see Ho-Oh truly living up to his name as the Rainbow Pokemon with all the colors being displayed very proudly. This is a wonderful piece of work, here. (Also shocked that I can give a critique as a non-subby person (for now), but I digress.) Very very wonderful.
What do you think?

:iconpiplup40:
The colours really catch my attention and how Ho-oh has detail that makes it look realistic is just plain awesome. Also the background does sute Ho-oh's colour scheme. The shading and lighting are really well done. Ho-oh's feathers also look lively. As well as me being a pokemon fan I give this deviation 5 stars all the way and this is my first critique so it is not easy writing one (or rating it). Overall I think this deviation really did deserve a daily deviation. In short to this critique: this piece looks like a whole tonne of effort had been put into it.

The colours in this are divine, very saturated and bright! And how you've drawn the sun's rays behind Ho-Oh is astonishing.
Congrats on the DD! Very well deserved, I can see the effort that has been poured into this piece. :D

ERMAHGERD HREYCHER. You've definitely deserved a DD for a while now and I'm so glad you now have one!! I think what makes this great is the flow into Lugia, or vice versa I guess? Anyway, your art is amazing and loads of congrats for getting a DD!! :iconhappyderpplz:
