Those... things connecting the body itself and the seed remind me of a horror manga I've read ages ago. If the tube-thingies in there got hold of you, you'd be done for. Here, they are a lot more organic, but it still looks like poor Bulbasaur is suffering - at least it looks so said I want to cuddle it and tell it that everything's ok and that one day it'll be a giant, badass flowersaur. From the looks of the top of the seed, it seems it's close to evolving. Maybe that's what's causing him pain? That the bud and leaves inside the seed are pressing against the seed walls, but they are still supplied with blood and the nerves are still connected and the seed is very, very heavy, now so close to evolving.
I came across a few very cool-looking pieces in 's favourite gallery, and I decided that sooner or later, I'd have to check that out for myself. Well, here I am, and I am not one bit disappointed at what I am seeing.
This here bulbasaur's go the works. I was just telling about how wonderfully grotesque and just plain freaky visible roots are on a bulbasaur. Just like Chewy, you've taken this to a fantastic degree, and your incredible level of detail you've put into those oozing, pulsating, pustule-bearing roots has successfully turned this cute elemental creature into a brilliant abominable science lab monstrosity. And then of course, you've literally topped it off with wondrous, alien, red-spotted, tentacle-like vine forms sprouting out from the top of its plant.
The rest of this creature is also brilliantly detailed, with highly elaborate wrinkles and structures in the skin, and a stubby little tail, folded in furrowed skin like an accordion. The bizarre creature looks back with an inquisitive, lined face that resembles Yoda's, with a beak like that of a stegosaurus. And finally, bulbasaur's spots have been transformed into intricate, inky patterns on the pokemon's face. This is a phenomenal start to a brilliant album.
I can't wait to see more. But this may still prove my favourite. We'll just see.
