Bouffalant by Ironwolf09 Bouffalant by Ironwolf09
#656 Bouffalant
Bash Buffalo Pokémon
Ability: Reckless or Sap Sipper
Height: 5'03" ft
Weight: 208.3 lbs

Bouffalants are herbivores, spending most of their days grazing in prairies and plains in large herds. Their daily schedule involves grazing, resting and then moving to a new location to graze again. Female bouffalants live in maternal herds which include other females and their offspring. Male offspring leave their maternal herd when around three years old and will either live alone or join other males in bachelor herds. Caution should be taken when around them, for even though they usually are seen as roaming steadily, they can easily outrun humans—Bouffalants have been observed running as fast as 55 miles per hour. To add to the danger thick hides and their large horns turn them into an almost unstoppable force.

Inspired from all the realistic pokemon :iconarvalis: has done

Awww it looks really sweet. I'd be the idiot to try and pet it despite knowing its based on a very territorial animal.

Love that texture on the fur. Oh! And that looks like a pidgey on its head. I almost didn't notice it. So cute!

I love Bouffalant. :D And you managed to make the rings on the horns and the afro look like they're a part of a more realistic animal. I had a lovely paradoxical Bouffalant on White version, he was both careful and reckless at the same time. :)

Had you included the trainer silhouette as well, I would've completely mistook this for arvalis' work. Seriously, great job!

Also, love your new avatar icon lol.

arvalis Featured By Owner May 2, 2013
If you want more true to life biology, they cant look much like the real pokemon at all. My buddy ~MetalReaper does his designs without any hint of magic to them, they are cool but dont really look like pokemon. I try to preserve the pokemon's key chracteristics and present them in a believable manner. There is no way to present a hexapod vertebrate as biologically accurate because to our knowledge they do not exist. All one can do is make them convincing enough for the viewer to suspend disbelief.

to be fair, pokemon are very difficult to interpret "realistically" while remaining faithful to their original design, tbh i'm still studying for my bachelor degree so i can't say i'm entirely sure. if it helps Polymelia or Dipygus deformity sorta makes six legged reptiles plausible. u r a far better artist then i so plz do not think i am trying to prove anything or insult you by saying this.

well your design looks like a normal animal and is pretty faithful to the art of Ken Sugimori is what i mean.
Reply
:iconironwolf09:
Ironwolf09 Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2012
Well I think it's because Bouffalant is a more
straightforward pokemon and easy to make "real" where the
pokemon Arvalis does are maybe more interpretational and he
has to actually the change the design to make it into a
realistic "real life" pokemon/animal
