Skarmory Redesign by Jack-Kaiser Skarmory Redesign by Jack-Kaiser
So many pokemon pieces lately, I got the urge to take a pass at my personal favorite. I love my flying knife stores.

The design is partially based off a mix of a Thai fighting rooster and the Secretary bird. I know the game version has teeth and window blinds for wings, but I wanted to make this thing look lean, mean and make sense for the listed size and weight. The idea was :icontiki-the-troll: 's; the conversation basically went:

"Take a look at Skarmory and tell me what kind of animal it would look like realistically."
"It kinda looks like a steel chicken."
"...I am not drawing a steel chicken. ...dammit, that's actually kinda brilliant."

So, yes.
My favorite pokemon is the razorchicken.






...I haven't the slightest clue how these things survive mating.

Credit goes to :iconarvalis: for the "realistic pokemon" format and for inspiring this sort of thing.

Ladies and Gentlemen: the result of a miraculously successful mating session between a male blaziken and a female skarmory.

I'd use the fuck out of skarmory if it actually looked like this in the games. Alas. . . .

...Wouldn't that produce a bird made out of knives that is also on fire?

...Holy shit, that would be the most METAL pokemon ever.
