Delcatty by wanlingnic Delcatty by wanlingnic
It's a Delcatty. You need no other explanation.

...Well, alright, you'll get a little more explanation.


This fluffy beastie is named Dinah, and belongs to Yvette 'Ivy' Devon. If you've seen half the sheaningans Ivy's been up to on her tumblr askblog, you might notice she has an obsession for cuddling things.

Well you can all hold this cuddlemonster responsible. Dinah is probably the friendliest little floofball you'll ever meet - mild-mannered, sweet and very huggable - she taught Ivy that Pokemon aren't feral war machines, and they need love just like anyone else.

Dinah's death was one of the reasons Ivy decided to leave home (there wasn't much 'holding her back' anymore).

Most of the time Ivy's cuddling, smothering, petting or otherwise showering a mon with affection, she's trying to let Dinah 'live' again through that gesture, if only for a little while.


--

Delcattys are adorable, but incredibly biologically impossible. What with their funny 'stamen' things coming out of their neck. xD Since Ivy's an aviation mechanic, turning them into ornamental feathers (like the ones on peacocks and secretary birds) made a lot more sense.

Ha! I was scrolling through this group then suddenly I noticed this and went "OMG I'd recognize that style anywhere!" (I read your Burning Bridges Nuzlocke comic :D)

Awesome job! Nice idea with the feathers, somehow they just seem to fit.

This is the only time I've thought that a delcatty is actually pretty and not derpy looking. I love the whiskers/whatever the things coming from her neck ruff are called. The feather like tail is awesome too.

Very cute and elegant!! I like this interpretation a lot better than the original design, it does biologically make more sense!

You made Delcatty look even more awesome. She's one of my favorite normal types.

P.S. -I also have a Delcatty in my Emerald Nuzlocke. She's so adorable!

No, it certainly doesn't. It's not too childish like the original style but it isn't too far-fetched realism like other 'realistic pokemon' drawings. Keep up the marvellous work :)

You are constantly changing how I look at Pokemon. I liked Delcatty before but this is just precious. I want to hold her and squeeze her and never let go. Really you're brilliant. She's adorable and gorgeous and stunning and fierce and everything all at once and I love it. :3

(fierce explanation(since the picture is rather cute and fluffy overall); to me something in her face is rather lion like and I can picture the sweet smile being replaced for sharp class at a moments notice if the occasion called for it.)
