Crimson Steel by Ryst-Airasee Crimson Steel by Ryst-Airasee
FUCK YOU LUCARIO, HERE'S THE BEST STEEL-TYPE

Yes that's right I said it. I will also say that I feel like the biggest nerd ever for drawing this, let alone submitting it... but my gallery here is long overdue for an update, and I'm itchin' to play some Platinum!

And when I DO play, I will hopefully catch a Scyther and evolve him into a Scizor and he will lead my team to victory. GO UNDERRATED POKEMON!

Technical stuff: oc1.1, one layer for Scizor himself, two layers for the glow of his X-Scissor attack. About 3 hours, from start to finish, all in one sitting. For those of you who want to see Scizor himself without that pesky gold stuff, here he is: [link] By himself he is only one layer, makes blending easier. :]

PS. I also saved the event file of this since I did it all at once. If anyone wants that for any reason, to see how I approach painting or whatever, just let me know.

Pokemon/Scizor (c) Nintendo;
Art (c) me. Yadda yadda.

This is outstanding, great slash effect, even cooler that you seem to have painted it instead of just using Glow!

(And if you did use Glow, that's awesome too xD )

scizor is badass enough for me to ask you
if he were in brawl what do you think his final smash would be?
I have five ideas and they are:
Scizor launches a dragon out of his pincers
Scizor performs a perfect double team an attacks randomly for 20 seconds
Scizor's x-scissor slashes into a four slashes crossing
(ver. 1) Scizor pulls out scyther's blades and slashes the first opponent he makes contact with while tracing the stage until he hits someone
(ver. 2) Scizor pulls out scyther's blades and slashes similar to link's final smash while tracing shadow lugia shaped seal
these are my ideas. What is yours? you don't have to mention your favorite of mine if you don't want to

Either Swords Dance so that he can land damage-boosted attacks or just a good 'ol X-Scissor to the face as an instant KO. Or Swords Dance then X-Scissor... hmm...

third idea is just like that but my two versions with blades of scyther is more badass combine a swords dance with mine an it is gold
btw which one did you like
then my brawl moveset is win
standard x-scissor
side bullet punch
downward double team similar to lucario
upward steel wing (one of the only pokemon to get STAB on it) or aerial ace
each one's name of my ideas
1. dragon scissors
2. perfect double team (made by my twin bro)
3. star scissor
4. evolution fusion x-scissor (needs a better name)
5. shadow lugia trace fusion (needs a better name)

I got color changes to
1. normal
2. shiny
3. black armor
4. crystal blue armor (blue team)
5. master chief green armor (green team)
6. orange like in emerald
bonuses
gold armor
white armor
rusted armor

when he pulls out scyther's blades he does x-scissor making an instant KO in the fourth idea but in the fifth techstab fury cutter similar to triforce slash with scyther's blade


btw fun fact I read on bulbapedia (the pokemon wikia) scizor is never the same color two games in a row he was dark red in gold and silver, red-orange inb ruby saphire and emerald, crimson in diamond and pearl and dark red in platinum [link])

Well, good news is you can find Scyther in Platinum, north of the one town with the breeding center. :) So that's a plus.

As for the picture, this looks down right amazing. I really can't add much comment-wise... The pose is fitting, and the bright yellow lighting the red against pure black is very striking.

Good work, and best bug-type and part of my deadly three-man team.

Scizor is awesome and this is an awesome pic. He was my favorite steel type before Lucario, and still is very high up. Definitely my favorite bug type at least.
