Enter the Dragons by Trueform
It seems as though Trueform has well and truly broken the mold yet again, filled to bursting with pop-culture goodness. Let's start with the names of each Fakemon.

Shenlin, a derivation of the famous Shaolin monks and Shenlong or 'shen-lung' spirit dragon is clever and precise in describing the pokemon's appearance and type.

Shenfu and Shensei, a combination of Shenlong and kung fu/sensei respectively, are again prominently depicted with each Fakemon's weighted clothing (reminiscent of Son Goku from the Dragon Ball Z series) and long beard with accompanying yoga 'lotus' position. Also the western and eastern dragon styles arrer nicely alluded to by the evolutions.

The use of evolution through attack stat like Pokémon's Hitmonlee and Hitmonchan is clever but could cause people to choose Shenfu over Shensei if the latter doesn't have moves to make up for it (Maybe like a Shoryuken?)

Another problem might occur if the stats are the same upon evolving. In order to get rid of this, a third evolution might be introduced like Pokémon's Hitmontop. To keep with the theme of balance perhaps the Fakemon could incorporate the 'yinyang' symbol into its' design and the word 'Tao' into its' name, reminiscent of the eastern philosophical teachings.

Overall, this is a brilliant piece of art conceptively and I hope to see any revisions and changes this artist make with utmost joy. Well done Trueform!

P.S. On a side note I noticed the Dragon Balls held in the horns and wrists of the dragons. Nice work!
After nearly four months away from devaintART, I can see that quite a couple of things have changed, namely the layout. Everything seems so strange, so FOREIGN...
...and then you get over two seconds later and move on with your life.
:iconmehplz:

Reason why it's been so long since ANYTHING, is mainly due to university. So I can't guarantee any sort of art any time soon.
PEACE OUT!

Commissions

Commissions: I am Open for Business
I will create artworks for you! Full pencil drawing in colour is 10 points. A Black and White sketch is 3. If I'm inclined to give you a colour upgrade, well, I'm in a good mood. I can also do digital art but if you browse my galleries, I'd avoid that! However if you do feel like that, I can whip up one for a measly 1 point per panel.
