Serious Gumble (Ancient Beasts) by Zistheone Serious Gumble (Ancient Beasts) by Zistheone
This was an illustration request I did for :icondreadknight666: DreadKnight666, which features a rubbery creature known as Gumble from his online game Ancient Beasts.

Since Gumble came off as one of the cuter & weaker creatures from the game, I thought it'd be interesting to make him look like he's trying too hard to be serious by wearing a viking helmet and holding a mace, rather than using his own strengths and natural abilities. When painting Gumble, I used Ken Sugimori's style as my biggest reference and looked at more of the slimy pokémon such as Goodra and Swalot for the same kind of body texture.

This illustration was done in gouache (with a bit of watercolor), though I used Photoshop to touch up a few white spots and any specks of dust that were on the scanner.

Thanks, I saw it & I really appreciate it. I also think it's cool that you're going to make a game starring Gumble too.

Also, I wanted to let you know that I posted this on my Twitter page as well, it's just that I didn't know that you had an account before I tweeted it, so I just used your real name & mentioned all of the information in the replies due to text limitations.

Well, the drawing led to a series of nice events, a fan even uses it as avatar on facebook now and we managed some nice brainstorming on the project the other day :)

Thanks for featuring it & for the points. I was  a little worried that you wouldn't like it since it doesn't have Gumble in a battle pose
