Troll Bridge by wanlingnic Troll Bridge by wanlingnic
Word to the wise: Never fuck with Snorlax.

To be perfectly honest, this pokemon always reminded me of the fairytales where a bridge has a troll underneath and it'll come out and block you from getting to the other side. And as we all know, trolls are dicks. 

Also, I only got to play pokemon X in late january after the first term exams - it means I missed out on the Mega-Torchich download event. Wehhh.

That is a very good interpretation of Snorlax. I also thought Snorlax reminded me of like an ogre or something from classic RPGs. It also explains why Snorlax is in the "Monster" egg group though if it were just an animal like a bear it would be in the "Field" egg group instead.

I adore this piece of yours, Wan. The design on the snorlax is wonderful--it reminds me of a sloth and a bear smushed together. The concept of it being a troll beneath the bridge fits it perfectly. It needs some sort of pay-off, or else it's not going to let you pass.

The watercolours are absolutely gorgeous--it reminds me of a children's book. I love how the figure and Snorlax are so painstakingly detailed, and you do not ignore the background, but you allow it to fade, bringing our attention as the viewer onto the situation at hand. Just really great work as per usual.

This is so fantastic.
Don't like snorlax
Don't like trolls
It just makes sense.

Now I think about it... Snorlax does fit the bill since he's always blocking ya and you pay him with a ton of food. XD

The mega torchic was the main icing on the cake!! :"( hope you got the celebi or garchomp! My singapore version couldn't download pokebank, so i missed out on some black-eyed kodama love.


^ this snorlax doesn't seem like.. the Rest type. Looks like it's got granbulls on one side of the family!

That's gotta be the coolest Snorlax ever! Reminds me of the movie 'Troll Hunter'.

I love the pokemon you draw in your style. :heart: They look so badass. Also, if you want to you can get a Torchic and a blazikenite from me if you gave me your friend code. I never really liked mega-Blaziken anyway X)

huh I never really thought of that, though in retrospect those bottom fangs really should have tipped me off. I guess the original design is a bit too bear like though you really sell the troll image.

Whoa, now that's a scary-looking Snorlax :wow: I love how you always manage to give us a different look of the pokémon~ :nod: I missed seeing your art, and you did a pretty good job on this! :D

Also, at least you have Pokémon X :XD: I don't even have money to buy a 3DS (or a 2DS) :XD:

Shhhh JESS I LOVE YOU. *smothers you*

I'm planning a reply on your note, and I was a bit scared to reply to you here before it was done but it's taking way too long because of my exams and I don't want you to think I forgot it and you. You're wonderful. *kisses* I've missed you loads too.

And yes! I actually didn't have the game for MONTHS after it came out. It's a late present from my family because I stayed in England to study for the january exams. QuQ Maybe you can buy one for yourself as a treat?

I'm sorry for the overreaction, but I was afraid you'd forgotten about me. I missed you so much! I've been having a tough time lately, so reading your reply filled me with joy! :glomp:

Don't worry about the games, I'm too busy to play anyway. And take your time with the note, I'll be waiting :dummy: Also, good luck with your exams!! YOU CAN DO EET!!!! :iconyeyplz:

Never thought of Snorlax like that. But now that you've mentioned it. It does really seem fitting.
Well I now know how I'll call my competitive Snorlax.

Btw. The art is amazing aswell, as usual.
