Realistic Maika and Karamanero (Inkay and Malamar) by Reganismyfirstname Realistic Maika and Karamanero (Inkay and Malamar) by Reganismyfirstname
HOLY CALAMARI! SQUID POKEMON! Suck it Octillery! If you haven't already heard, check out the latest corocoro scans here! [link]

Edit: English names confirmed! Maika is now Inkay, and Karamanero is now Malamar (haha the Calamari nickname would be very fitting)

I just had to do this rough paint thing of a somewhat more realistic version of them in their natural habitat, despite not having water typing. I know Karamanero's tentacles look weird, but I wanted to show that beak! As I am studying Zoology, and hoping to go into Marine Biology, the introduction of bioluminescent squid pokemon has me ridiculously excited. I am totes going to catch one, why I already have a mental list of possible nicknames:

-Squidward
-Calamari
-Cthulhu
-THE KRAKEN
-Davy Jones
-Leviathan
-Mrs. Tentacles
EDIT: Awesome names suggested in the comments
-Ursula
-Zoidberg (personal favourite)
-Firefly ([link] Educate yourselves
-Blooper

Oh, so I'm not the only one who thought of Ursula when I saw these two Pokémon! That's great, really great. xD

np about the article, without game related art like yours and your permission i have nothing to write about :)

I organized a lot of contests in the last 2 weeks here on dA but this one seems to be the most unique one so far, the "screenshot art" style is something quite untouched and i bet it can be a real challenge

Good luck and much fun with your entry if you choose to participate :-)

For some reason, I'm going to call my Inkay "Squiggles" or "Squidgy" :D

Don't get me wrong, I love octopus and all Cephalopods, but the fact that octillery is supposed to evolve from a fish is simply unacceptable.

So inkay evolves into a Chocolate covered marshmallow with a gram cracker?
Seriously, Nintendo could have chosen a better name than MALAMAR. (Mallomars)

This is still a freaking amazing representation of them realistically. Well done :D

Imagine if someone named their character "Davy Jones", then challenged another player to a battle and the screen says "Davy Jones sent out THE KRAKEN!"
