Typhlosion by sporezofchaos Typhlosion by sporezofchaos
Cyndaquil pups are born in pairs or triplets at the beginning of winter. they are born hairless, blind, and deaf and it takes many months for their eyes and ears to open, many don't open their eyes for months after birth and some even are adopted by trainers like this. They are aggressively guarded by their mother living in the den she burrowed into the bases of snowy, volcanic mountain ranges. When spring arrives the pups are fluffy, alert, and covered in flexible hollow quills. These quills serve many purposes, lying flat along the gradient of their fur when relaxed. When the young Cyndaquil feels in danger the quills are erected by tiny muscles and the hollow spaces inside filled with hydrogen and phosphorous contract stiffening the quills and expelling the combustible chemicals in a violent reaction both as an offense and defense. Once the pups reach adolescence and their mother can no longer nurse them they venture off on their own, prowling the mountain ranges for prey and a territory of their own. They grow exponentially, dawning a crest of quills on their heads as a display for rival Quilava. The fur around their eyes forms a mask to make them more intimidating and their ears, no longer vestigial buds, allow for acute hearing. Living in dormant lava flow tunnels, Quilava face their anterior towards the entrance as a defensive wall of quills to ward off predators and competitors. When they finally reach adulthood, their adolescent mask and crest are shed and they have doubled in size and quadrupled in weight due to added muscle. Their once green tinted fire-retardant fur is now blue, and a row of long quills has developed on the upper back and shoulders to provide protection from bites to the neck. The now adult Typhlosion is fiercely territorial and constantly combats others to protect their land.

finally done, this took so long, I shudder thinking about it...

so your accusing this Artist of coping from arvalis, for pokemon design that they both don't own the rights to, as Nintendo own the design IP, if nintendo wanted to be assholes they could accuse both for copying from them, you cant accuse a artist for copying as neither own the IP rights, and since they both used protected IP content to create there work, the copyright to there work becomes void as it belongs to Nintendo

And for me it feels like you're either blind, or you're stupid enough to offend someone without checking facts first.

I wonder how he could copy something that didn't even exist back then.

Wow chill there, kiddo. I didn't offend nobody (unlike you just did), I was simply stating that they look awkwardly simmilar.

If you would check his first art, you would read that he DOES style them like arvalis.
If you felt offended, sorry, but you would take a minute to check his other arts and read as much, just as I did. Maybe this whole situation wouldn't occur then.

And really, don't call me a kid being only 14, I would say the same to you seeing how you reacted. I wouldn't get offended just because I was called stupid for not checking my facts first.

Really, sorry. But I've dealt with so many people calling original concept owners a thieves, I can't hold myself.
Little edit: By original concept I don't mean the style he does the file, but the Typhlosion overall. Arvalis did take the blazing fur concept that appears here.

You shouldn't act like that towards people, it's childish from your side. Maybe she did say something that shouldn't be said, but you shouldn't act all high and mighty. Yes, she did mistake, she shouldn't say it (especially since she's older), but you're not without fault.

Both of you should now cool down and forget about this.

If I had to complain...quilava is taller and I would imagine him to be more weasel-like, and just lower to the ground basically.

Bleh, enough of stupid complaints, THIS IS AWESOME AND I WANT ONE!!! :D

Aside from Cyndaquil, Quilava and Typhlosion are from the weasel family, specially the latter, who lost like a honey badger... now that's a badass animal. :3

I didn't say his is worst. While his are realistic and I like many of them, some look more frustrated than they could in my opinion. xD I don't see animals always snarling, so I prefer something a little more neutral. Sweating a little...
