037 Vulpix and 038 Ninetails by RtRadke 037 Vulpix and 038 Ninetails by RtRadke
Vulpix is born with only one tail, which splits several times as it grows older. It also spits fire.

Ninetails have been known to live for hundreds of years and are believed to have the psychic ability to create illusions, however such reports are unfounded in hard scientific evidence. It is said that pulling one of their tails gives you bad luck.

I think I need more practice drawing canines. It's mainly the fur I have trouble with.

I want to hug them they are so cute. I really like your realistic Pokemon drawings. I don't know how to explain how I feel about them :3

Thank you. I try to model them after real animals as closely as possible. Results may vary.

Np. Are they hard to draw? I know I would have a tough time!

Actually most of the pokemon are really easy. Every once in a while there is an Exeggcute or Mr Mime to solve but for most there are obvious animals in nature to base it on and I'm okay at drawing from references.

Cool. Your drawing style is just amazing and I almost wish some of them were real because their design is so realistic.

You have to love Kitsunes, especially a nine tailed one. I like the story in Mystery Dungeon where a foolish person touched the tail of a Ninetails and his loyal Gardevoir gave her life to take away the curse, but he ran away and the Ninetails said that that person will become a pokemon and the world is be in chaos...

I like the stories in the Pokemon world, the legends are so fun

You should draw a "Realistic" Vulpix, but with one tail. This one is great too!

They look cute and quite like foxes, but I like the Zoroarks more

Ninetales is one of my favorite pokemon, and this is a good drawing, but it doesn't have the same feel as ninetales does. Not as elegant.

Well, alot of creatures made to look elegant in fiction aren't in real life. *shrug* Like lions. They're made to look like majestic kings/queens of the jungle, but they don't even LIVE in jungles, and half the time they steal food from cheetahs and hyenas.

I dunno, you say you can't draw canines, but your vulpix is great! It's probably the best vulpix I've ever seen (the last one I saw looked more like a goat!). I kind of like how it doesn't look as neotenic as the real vulpix.

Though why all the tails? You'd think they'd just weigh it down when it ran.

I know what you mean, my ninetails turned out a little "squat" and not as majestic as it should be.

Ninetails is one of my favourite Pokemon. These must have been kinda easy to draw because they are based off of real animals (mines having the extra tails). I like them. My only little bit of advice, Ninetails looks more like a Coyote, kinda short and has a more wolf-like face. Other than that I think that they look great! :w00t: I think you did a good job with the fur.
