Roaming the skies after day, searching for souls to take away

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Chandelure
''Chandelure sucks spirits out of living creatures then burns these spirits. Chandelure hypnotize victims by waving the flames on its arms.''

''It absorbs a spirit, which it then burns. By waving the flames on its arms, it puts its foes into a hypnotic trance. Being consumed in Chandelure's flame burns up the spirit, leaving the body behind. The spirits burned up in its ominous flame lose their way and wander this world forever.''

''Chandelure is a combination of Hitodama (a blue, black, or purple-fire associated with ghosts and yōkai, equivalent to the western will-o'-the-wisp) and a chandelier.''

-------------------------------------------------------------------

I decided to do another haloween-ish piece. I have been intrigued by Chandelure's design and background story from the beginning (: And I just love that cold pokerface-like expression on their faces. It makes them even more creepier looking somehow. Next to that I was listening to a couple of macabre tracks in my playlist and then this idea popped up :] I imagined them floating in large numbers in the sky towards villages and cities when the sun goes down. I sort of got the inspiration from the lantern festival they hold in Thailand with all the lanterns rising into the night sky.

I got some inspiration from these tracks, they are originally used in a theme park they have got here in the Netherlands. But I thought they suited the mood and scene very well (;

It really seems like the Unova regions pokemon are all really creepy. o-o Even if awesome artists make them really pretty too. <3

Autlaw Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Haha yeah I thought so too :P I've read a couple of descriptions of Unova pokemon and some have got quite the violent or creepy characteristics. Like burning spirits of humans, Kyurem used to eat people, Pawniard sinks it's blades into it's prey etc xD But I somehow like how this generation doesn't have all-cute, sweet and mushy kind of pokemon. It adds some excite to the new game as well. I just love the story of Kyurem, it makes it all a bit spookier and exciting than the previous games :]

Yeah, I do really like all the creepiness factors that pop up in it. Even if every now and then I do like to just enjoy all the adorable. XD

Haha some more cute pokemon are great as well (I think Emolga is quite cool looking actually, as an example : D ). But my team has always been a bit on the creepy side x) I always have lots of dark, dragon and ghosts in my team haha xD

This is wonderful! And I was nearly hypnotized when I turned up my brightness level to see the glowing. =P
You know, this could be in a legitimate Pokemon movie. It's that good!

Chandelure is one of the best Gen 5 Pokemon hands down. Lovely art, and I love the shiny ones you put in. My very first shiny ever was a Chandelure. I practically died when I got her. ^^

I agree with that, their design caught my attention. I just love the somewhat elegance about them and then that spooky background information about them stealing souls x) And that poker-face they've got.. I would freeze if they came slowly floating towards me with such an expression : P

And you got extremely lucky to catch a shiny one ! c: I hope to encounter a cool shiny as well in White 2. My last shiny was in pokemon Ruby and it was a zubat xD...
