Day 25, Poliwag, Poliwhirl, Poliwrath, Politoed.
Hard to fit all these guys in one frame for some reason.
So I know Paras is the one people might relate to mario the most, but I always thought Poliwhirl had much more of a resemblance.
Did you know that Poliwhirl is the creator of Pokemon's favorite Pokémon?
I wanted to do this one in a painterly style like with Oddish, so that I could play with transparancy of the pokemon's flesh, the gooyness of the blue oil-substance it oozes over it's black skin, it's inner organs showing through the clear white flesh of it's belly. unfortunatly, i couldnt find a pose that would work for it, so i might just do a separate study.
