.: THE CREATION OF MEW :. by Gymjack .: THE CREATION OF MEW :. by Gymjack
GOD this was endless to paint, but it's been worth every minute because i'm in love with the result!!! :deviation:

Since Mew was said to be the first pokemon, we could say he is the pokemon's Adam :D

I thought a million things while paintintg this, here's a random selection:

> I love Arceus' design and shapes... it expresses magnificently god-like attributes, but its design stays neat, simple and minimal. Really, i liked it before, but now i love it.

> Palkia would have been Michelangelo's favourite pokčmon.. its design perfectly fits into Michelangelo's style.. he used to paint monumental and bulky figures which showed the powerful strength of its characters, and he was influenced by greek classicism = Palkia, just perfect for him :love:

> I'm pleased of how Mew's tail came out... i wanted to mirror the arch of Arceus' mantle and i think i got it.

It wasn't easy but I tried to imitate as much as possible the effect of a fresco painting, so i used only wet media brushes since frescos are made by painting directly on wet walls.
I have lived all my childhood and the most beautiful years of my life in Italy, so this was an homage to that wonderful country.. Yay for renaissance!
I think i can easily say that this is my favorite pokemon artwork among my other doodles :nod:

:pokeball::pokeball::pokeball:


Edit: More saturated colours.. the original Creation of Adam is very desaturated, but i realized that a pkmn artwork needs very bright coloursss :nod:

If Mew is Adam, who is Eve?

to be honest mewtwo would fit uncannily well ^^; despite I assume that he is a guy?
Because Eve was made from adam and to be his counterpart.
Mewtwo was made from Mew's DNA to be mew replica... sort of similar and rather trippy :D

Since Mew is the first legendery I think it gave birth to all the other legenderies, I mean Blue, Green, and Red existed looong before all the other versions so I sorta see Mew as a parental figure to all of the other legendaries. ^^

Yeah, that is my idea too... Arceus is more of a "god"... the first REAL pokemon, is Mew!!! Not really a primeval elemental legendary, just a powerful ancient progenitor! :3 I'm kinda nostalgic about mew!

Hey I really really love your picture!

But, Mew was not the first Pokémon my friend. Arceus was the first one to be in existence!

Mew was the first pokemon because the other in the images was the Gods

exactly :D this is my feeling about the pokemon legendarium.. arceus, dialga and palkia are more of powerful first-generated entities than real pokemon.. Mew is the first pokemon imo.. this is also stated by its pokedex entry, so... :D
