Steelix | Iron Tail by ishmam Steelix | Iron Tail by ishmam
Steelix used Iron Tail!

I'm proud of how Steelix has a bit of that refined steel sheen, that power packed Iron Tail, and a rocky background that would seem like the perfect habitat.

It took about an hour on PaintTool SAI using a Wacom Bamboo tablet. Enjoy!

Fancy. You might want to try adding some more solid highlights. Metal is a very reflective surface, and it often produces sharp, jagged and bright reflections which follow the contours of the shape.

Also, perhaps try toning down the detail in the background, or maybe blur/desaturate it as it gets further away, so more attention is attracted to the Steelix, and so it stands out more.
