Miasmon Bestiary 10: Skularna

Skularna




Types: Undead

The ancients that inhabited Fracture before it was fractured were rather boring reptilian humanoids, probably. The world is littered with their ruins, which are inhabited by monsters based on them rather than on humans. So there are things like this floating skull - one of their skulls, rather than a human skull, as that wouldn't make any sense.

I like how this as a drawing turned out, but anatomically it's nonsensical, and I haven't actually properly designed the Elarna yet... but I should have done that before doing one of their skulls. So I may change the design later, perhaps. If I do, though, the differences will likely only be small. Maybe. Probably.

It evolves into something called Skelarna, which I mention since it seems an obvious name that I want to show I've already come up with before anyone suggests it, or something. o_O

This looks like nothing you'd ever see in Pokemon, probably because of the ethereal glow and the fact that it's a set of disconnected bones. Thumbs up for not copying Pokemon on your ghosts!
Also, I wonder... Will the ancients, or Elarna as you call them, be anything like the Reptoids or Lingons? Or will they be some sort of median between the two: without the strength of Reptoids or the magic of Lingons, but some other defining trait?

The monster is great! The skull and the dark colours make it perfect!

The design is rather fantastic, and creative, and what really tops this little work of art, is the way the bright white and blue of the hollow eye contrasts the dark look of the rest of the body, giving it a surreallish and etherealish outlook.

Looking forward to more... :D

Awesome! I love it when games with archeology themes do it right and have very foreign-feeling ruins with hints that a very foreign people once lived in them. Plus this is just a very cool monster. The little floating vertebrae are a nice touch.

Heh, this is actually really cool. I can't stop looking at it.

Maybe it has something to do with the fact that it's a skull...

Now this is a 'mon that I'd love to get/earn in the game.
Hope that the sprite will be equally brilliant.

I take that the "Skelerna", or something will look more like a complete skeleton? Skull Roggle maybe? Possibly?

Of all the Miasmon drawings you've done, this one is by far my favorite. I like it's ghostly and dark feeling...it almost seems as if it was guarding something..

This is my favorite by far. I love the dragon skull and the way that it looks like it is the very essence of miasma. It seems like it could very well evolve into the Zombie Dragon secret boss from MARDEK 2. Very much looking forward to Miasmon.

What is your anatomical issue? Is it that the head does not go far enough back to allow for a brain? As the Skularna (and the race you based it off of) were your creation, you cannot have any anatomical issues in your own drawing... right?

Love this one; freaky monsters are my favorite! Maybe I'm a fool, but whenever I played the pokemon games I chose my team based purely on aesthetics. Made for an interesting challenge, if my most effective pokemon's evolved form was a poor design.

By the sounds if it, this monster is actually a dead version of another, which is much creepier and cooler. Definitely not something you'd see in pokemon games, so really excited for the darker tone Miasmon seems to have. Keep it up!
