Meloetta's artwork?

0 votes

Well, I remember seeing something on Serebii.net about Meloetta's artwork. So, I was snooping around and saw it:

Is this the right one? Because then, it can replace the sprites on Meloetta's page. Thank you for your time. ;D

And I saw it on there front page, but now its on the side of Serebii's Meloetta page ( http://www.serebii.net/pokedex-bw/648.shtml ).
Yep, that's the right Meloetta. The green one is Meloetta in its Aria form. The brownish one is in its Pirouette form. Hope I Helped :D
The colors were the colors of the hair, like green hair and browish hair. Sorry if you got confused.
No this is artwork from a user on Deviantart called Xous54 and are not official artworks here's his profile http://xous54.deviantart.com/
Yeah, it looks like legit artwork, but as you can see, the Aria forme image has a watermark. They do look great, though; Pirouette Forme is probably one of my favorite Fighting-types.

Bulbapedia has this for Meloetta. If you look very very very very carefully you can tell some differences between the style of these and the style of regular Pokemon, very well done forgeries though.

That's anime artwork, Speed freak.
Its anime but not Pokemon Anime. Every Artist draws differently, the artist for Pokemon artwork does not draw the same way as that fan artist.
The artwork you posted is not fan art, it's for Pokémon anime. What other kind of anime would it be for?
No I was saying the one that Rio posted was the fan art. I know the Bulbapedia one is correct.
I see.
Also regarding the artwork in the question, you can see textured lines; Ken Sugimori draws with solid lines.
Wow good eye Sam I did not notice that before! The textured lines seem a bit more pronounce in the dance form.
I immideately knew it was Xous54 when I saw his signature under Meloetta's left arm.
Yeah that was kind of a dead giveaway.

Only the Aria form has been officially revealed AFAIK, so the Bulbapedia one is the only official artwork. The others are fanart, note the black body instead of brown as in the sprite.

Although Serebii has a different artwork...
