If the swirls in real life are the intestines, does it mean that whole in its belly is its anus?

I don't really understand why people make these intentional creepy pokemon and call them "realistic versions", when, clearly you are ignoring the actual design origin and lore of the individual creatures...

Sweet rendering of this amped-up amphibian! I love what you've done with its mouth. Even if technically the polis' swirls are meant to be guts, that horrific twister on this pokémon's face which leads to the sarlacc-like pit of doom that is its mouth is an utter fright. And I guess it made a bit of sense of poliwrath's odd apparent lack of a mouth. I love how you've continued the spiral motif by throwing in those crazed, swirling hypnotic pupils of utter madness that along with the wall-eyed frog stare you've given it makes this thing look little short of deranged. Great job working poliwrath's stubby form into a hulking menace with the clear raw might of a bulky fighting type, and excellent work on the details - the dripping body, clawed, webbed feet and ominous marsh-like background give poliwrath a brilliant swamp monster vibe which suits the titanic tadpole tremendously!

You've done it again, Soup and Butter!

That's a wicked combination of badass and creepy.  Totally digging it, except that it doesn't look as "fighting type" as it did before.

As... interesting as this design is, the signature spiral on the belly of Polywag and its evolutions are actually intestines showing through semi-transparent skin, just like with real life tadpoles.  This fact has even been confirmed as canon by Satoshi Tajiri himself (Polywag is apparently his favorite pokemon).

I thought about going in that direction. I decided against it. I may try the transparent route in the future though.

Yeah, the whole "transparent stomach" look has real potential.  Just look at these things:

While i love this imagining, i feel like the colors could have been made to match the original a little better. Like, maybe have there be more of a gradient with lighter colors around his spiral and darker colors surrounding it, so as to give the image of that white belly?
