How would Pokemon look in real life? Freakin’ terrifying, actually
Pokemon have cropped up quite a bit recently, what with full remakes of Pokemon Ruby & Sapphire and spin-off title Pokemon Art Academy being announced for 3DS. Those are nice and all, but Nintendo’s going to have to pull out some serious heavy hitters to compete with artist RJ Palmer and his growing collection of realistic (read: nightmarish) Pokemon.
His most recent work shows a distinctly aquatic Lugia stalking a coral reef inhabited by a very unfortunate Seadra, but Palmer has drawn many Pokemon to life already. His Tyrantrum rendition, both living and fossilized, is something to see, as is the gigantic insect horror that is Giratina. Second-generation starters have seen some love as well: the Meganium family comes to life as titanic turtles, and “bipedal crocodile” has been taken to the extreme with Feraligatr.
