Smash Series: Greninja Makes a Splash! by Pixelated-Takkun Smash Series: Greninja Makes a Splash! by Pixelated-Takkun
Greninja Makes a Splash! I have been wanting to draw a Greninja print for the longest time! I've included him in my Smash Bros Newcomers print and Hydro Cannon ones but I really wanted to do one with just him. He's my favorite water starter and overall Pokemon! (Tied with Gengar, Tyrantrum, and Feraligatr tbh) He's also my main in Smash 4, My ID is kurisu1991x if anyone wants to challenge me :)

I've seen a bunch of Greninja fanarts around deviantART for some time now, and this looks outstanding coming from the use of tradtional tools.

The first thing I noticed is the background. It represents the time of ninjas back in Japan and this fits the Pokemon's appearance. The art techniques he uses are well done and I like how you can see the strokes to show wind.

From what I see in his gallery, he's definitely have a variety of drawing styles whilst keeping the roots of his colouring in the work. Overall, this is impressive and definitely captures the Pokemon well. Keep up the good work!

Greninja is one of my favorite Pokemon from the new generation! I love this drawing of her! I like the pagoda and Oriental garden in the background, especially the lily pads and flowers on the bottom of the picture. (That's cool how the pagoda has a Pokeball on top of its roof. Clever! :-D) I also like how you drew the reflections of light from the full moon on the water. Like your "Jurassic Pokemon" picture, the background shows a peaceful and quiet scene while the star Pokemon is in a powerful action stance! I like how you drew the water in her left hand--or rather, flipper--and how it follows the curve of the full moon behind it. This picture somehow makes me think of the song "I'll Make a Man Out of You" from the film Mulan (even though it's based on China rather than Japan). It's because to me, Greninja here exhibits the traits that the song says make a good fighter: "tranquil as a forest," "swift as the coursing river, with all the rush of a great typhoon," and "mysterious as the dark side of the moon." She has found her center, and is sure to win.

AWESOME JOB!!!!!

This looks fantastic! I love Greninja! He is my favorite overall starter pokemon and overall favorite tied with Milotic, Growlithe and Arcanine, and Piplup and his evolution line! The other water starters and their evolution line are close.

Wow, I love the fact you've used a traditional medium because it makes this stand out all the more. It's beautifully detailed and a lot of thought and work has clearly gone into this. The light-dark difference stands out well and it's a very atmospheric piece. Amazing work!

Oddly enough, Greninja is my least favourite water starter. I love the fact he's also a dark type; you'd think that'd make me like him more than I do as I have a fondness for dark-type Pokemon. He just doesn't do it for me... I suspect his moveset in comparison to that of Delphox and Chestnaught may have something to do with it. His signature move is cool in theory but it's not a move I'd ever consider teaching Greninja because of how low in power it is.

He reminds me of Infernape; both have the look of being speedy and being able to deliver powerful attacks, but both to me look like they'd faint from one powerful strike. It's not necessarily a reflection on their stats but it puts me off all the same.

I played Greninja a few times at the Best Buy event in Oklahoma City; Greninja is an absolute blast to play as! Quick on his feet, multiple ways to mess with your opponents (Substitute and Shadow Sneak), and a reliable projectile in Water Shuriken (which can KO at very high percentages). Definitely going to main him and Little Mac.

Little Mac is an absolute BEAST! He has so many super-powerful attacks it'll make your head spin. You have to keep him grounded though, as his airgame/recovery are pathetic.
