I appreciate the "bumps" but post some art if you could
Gallade is pretty nice too.
>Why does Pixiv have all the good shit?
Maybe japanese artists feel closer to that franchise, given that it is their domestic produce?
DeviantARTlets are capable of producing something decent once in a while, but dA's 'good stuff' is seemingly limited to box art Pokemon and 1-st generation.
Which leaves me with a pic-save ratio of 1 to 5 for dA VS Pixiv as far as Gardevoir and Gallade are concerned.
Other - though of limited relevance - matter is that Pixiv's tag system and user-driven willingness to enforce it makes it much easier to find fanart whereas deviantART (especially) and Tumblr discourage searching for new content.
Japanese artists are usually better than western artists anyway, regardless of the subject matter
Not really sure why, but I'm going to guess it's because Japan has a lot more basement dwellers, enough to warrant a wikipedia article
There needs to be more non-waifu gardevoir. It seems like all you find is cheery and cutesy shit.
It's one of the most powerful psychics in the game, why does everyone seem to think it'd behave like a submissive teenager?
Because this is how quite a lot of this fandom has been since its inception.
The only remedy would be to make some new content which takes this notion into account, but generally sitting on ones hands and complaining until someone else fixes it is the preferred method of problem solving.
If I could make content I would be churning it out, trust me
Learning to draw takes some time, but it is always worth it unless one is quick to sabotage himself over failed steps.
A not unenjoyable imbalance as far as I'm concerned
Maybe start with something loose just to keep you drawing?
When I drew stuff like pic related I had to make a whole reference and design sheet before making even a single dot on the final image - otherwise I would be discouraged as well.
Well you're welcome to it, I prefer my gardevoir mysterious and powerful, not some clueless bimbo
See, I can't even doodle without criticizing my stuff, at least when drawing living beings.
You drew that though? That's incredible.
>See, I can't even doodle without criticizing my stuff, at least when drawing living beings.
Maybe practice with a character that you wouldn't care if it got fucked over? For some time I felt that I'd be butchering IPs through trying to draw fanart of them, so I decided to breach this barrier with a character that was considered to be a pathetic encroachment within the franchise it belonged to.
Discounting the exaggeration, that's still implying cute things can't be powerful
Maybe Anon rather meant "not being depicted as a moe blob with a facial expression most commonly seen on blow-up dolls".
hm... maybe I could try that.
Now I just have to work up the desire to actually bother with my digital stuff instead of just using a shitty pencil
Not at all, I just pathologically hate the weak, submissive, childlike demeanors that are most often displayed. To me it's blatant waifuism. You don't like the pokemon, you just like to fantasize about it. Not sayign that is the case for all you guys, that's just how it comes off to me
Apparently October will bring in more Pokemon plush merchandise, but all that seems to be left as an info are stamp-sized pictures.
I..I really don't know how to feel about that.
Initially an ambiguously representative form in the shape of a knights helmet as well as hair. However this subtle design element was too often overlooked so they just went fuck it and created Gallade to emphasize those subtelties already in the line.
Anyone lurking? I got a bunch of images, willing to post of another contributes
You have my attention, though I only have garde pics anons have already seen
I have some left, but I'm low on anything that isn't a repost or Gallade.
my my if it isn't the best Gardevoir picture in existence
Is there any bigger resolution of this one? Or at least Pixiv link?
Not that I could find...
Sorry I'm slowing down btw, just waiting until the thread gets traffic/lurkers
Sure. Take your time. I might bump it from time to time as well.
I have a stupid question that has been nagging me today.
Are there fanarts that pair Gardevoir and Gardevoir 2.0 - Gothitelle - together?
My Gallade folder is full of images that depict Gallade alongside Bisharp and it seems to be a fairly popular theme among japanese artists to the point that there are several fan-made comics and comic series using this pair extensively and I wondered if there is Gardevoir-Gothitelle variant of it.
Oh boy, here we go.
>why do people draw gardevoir with tits
Because on some level they are aware that Gardevoir by itself isn't fappable and thus depictions of it are equipped with everything that can bridge this fetish gap.
>That should be it's brother, Gallade since he's always getting neglected.
I'd rather have a Gallade that keeps smiling. It is enough that his fandom feels miserable, no need to push it onto the Pokemon in question.
>tfw when no mega gallade
A question comes to mind you think in the remakes will swap out his trapdevoir for gallade?
This. So much.
As far as official merchandise and advertising goes, it is rather common to depict Gallade as a sympathetic being. No idea why - maybe to balance out the metric shittons of such 'stare blankly into horizon, snap at the slightest sign of cheerfulness within one mile radius' blade-wielding heroes?
I think that anon meant "why replace Wally's male Gardevoir with Gallade when giving him both would be a better option?" - there was no mention of megas in that post.
I myself suspect that the earliest chance for a Mega Gallade will be somewhere in late stages of sixth gen, be it Z or Sinnoh remake.
Something like this? I can't see it being used over Aegislash honestly.
Do we know yet? It might as well be a sequel, given that both of villains were spared.
Well, crap. It is going to be hard to make Gallade viable without ridiculously broken abilities.
>Do we know yet? It might as well be a sequel, given that both of villains were spared.
They have been confirmed to be remakes multiple times over, otherwise we'd have new villains, even considering Maxie and Archie still being alive by the end of the originals.
Sinnoh remake would make more sense in this gen, given that RSE, DPPt and XY(Z) all have the 'Let's make this world a better place to live by destroying it utterly!' storyline.
Also, Johto has received a remake in gen4 so I doubt that we will be seeing it remade prior to gen7.
Since ORAS was announced a new pattern was found: The remakes are all connected to the number 2 somehow.
>4-2=2 (4/2=2 as well, not to mention the square root of 4 is 2)
I think we can see Sinnoh remakes as soon as Gen 8.
Alternately, since GBA, there's been remakes every new Nintendo handheld, barring upgrades of old ones such as the Game Boy Micro and the DSi.
I admit that my "Sinnoh remakes confirmed" was an asspull, but I don't think that such mathematical patterns should be trusted either - ultimately nearly everything that GF plans in advance is engineered towards extending the life of this franchise rather than catering to M-muh canon! M-muh patterns! kind of people.
With Mega evos a lot of previous assumptions regarding 'unshakable' canonical foundations has been thrown out of the window. People expected RSE to be remade in gen-5 because this is what pattern suggested, but GF simply postponed it until late 2014 to promote new platform and new uplift.
>That red chest plate makes hugging harder
>Let's remove it surgically, it couldn't have been of any importance to its organism!
Maybe reposter likes it?
Although the aforementioned artwork shines in seven different shades of stupid, the premise of caring for crippled/disabled/hurt Pokemon has some charm to it.
she's like a small asian QT 3.14
Yes, Froslass IS 100% female, but the pic in question has Gardevoir dressed as Froslass - and Garde by definition shits on the gender VS outfit code.
Quit yer bitchin'
But you're all butthole surfers
an ability would not be enough
and, if Gallade got a Mega in ORAS, he would end up being one of those Pokemon that needs its Mega Evolution to be good, like Charizard, Pinsir and Kangaskhan
>he would end up being one of those Pokemon that needs its Mega Evolution to be good, like Charizard, Pinsir and Kangaskhan
Not sure why this would need to be exactly bad - this is sort of like "Blaziken needs its speedboost to not be a shitmon".
GF would have to either revamp physical psychics and boost their psychic movepools or go with the flow and retcon Gallade to Fairy/Fighting to improve the regular one.
Sometimes I wonder if it is possible for anyone who despises Gallade to drop this hate and gain a bit of sympathy for him instead.
None yet. As far as anything Gardevoir/Gallade related goes, only the comics of Sougetsu get translated.
I don't have samples of that one either, as I seldom save anything that has chest-tumor Gardevoir on it - but these are definitely worth checking out.
Type the artist's name into google search along with Gardevoir or Gallade and you'll get a link to Danbooru stash that contains translated versions.
I opened up the archive to find this thread and recent history is swamped with people furious over Gallade. What happened?
>he's a janitor
>on the internet
>on a pokemon imageboard
>he does it for free
>he takes his "job" very seriously
>he does it because it is the only amount of power & control he will ever have in his pathetic life
>he deletes threads he doesn't like because whenever he gets upset he has an asthma attack
>he deletes threads he doesn't like because they interfere with the large backlog of little girl chinese cartoons he still has to watch
>he will never have a real job
>he will never move out of his parent's house
>he will never be at a healthy weight
>he will never know how to cook anything besides a hot pocket
>he will never have a girlfriend
>he will never have any friends
Janitor aint gonna do sheit
I dare him to do something
Don't tempt fate Anon-san
Gotta Live Like Larry in these times m8
>finishes his hot pockets he cooked in a dirty microwave
>sees his waifu having sex with someone other than him
>the vibrations in his ass are too much for him
>removes all evidence it ever happened, but not before he saves them for his own purposes
>bans the person responsible
>for 12 minutes
>"that'll show him who runs this bitch"
They just look kinda cute with the big eyes and whole dancer in a dress thing that they have going on. Plus it arguably looks the most human of all pokemon so it's easy to give a personality to one as less of an animal friend and more a human friend, which is more relatable
>it arguably looks the most human of all pokemon so it's easy to give a personality to one as less of an animal friend and more a human friend
Pretty much agreed.
Dunno about 'the MOST human of ALL pokemon', but it's up there close to the top, sure.
And if I had a Gardevoir to care for, I'd have a hard time comparing him/her to a dog or horse or some other animal companion.
Not as autistic as Gardevoir haters who don't explain why they hate Gardevoir apart from the fact that it's popular.
I would but all I have is old stuff... I think
