This beautiful piece truly captivates the loneliness and hopelessness of a poor Cubone. It blends cuteness of both design and subject matter with realistic shading on the skull helmet, which appears to melt into the paper itself. The trail of tears that resemble small bubbles gives the piece a surreal twist, and though it is perhaps unintentional, the shadowy lower left corner gives the piece a certain level of darkness. We find it especially interesting when pieces like this depict Cubone with blue eyes. In this particular picture, it is likely to add innocence to the Cubone and to enhance the tears. This is a very cute and heartfelt piece, and we can tell that the artist put a lot of time into it.
Cubone is one of those darker Pokémon in my opinion, and it's this that you've captured so beautifully. The pokémon is a symbolisation of death, loss and loneliness, and you've caught the tradgic side of it's character. Compositionally the piece is very provocative, showing a deep emotional state of anguish and despair, making this a very psychologically moving piece, the shading is excellently down and the 'ghosting' effect harks back to the background we have of it's mothers death, and the fact Marowak was the first Pokémon we've seen in a confirmed deceased state. The shading is of an excellent standard and defines the characters shape and form, creatng a more bold standard. The selected colours make for a more captivating viewer experience as they are evidently carefully chosen due to the outcome being so evocative and memorable, perfectly portraying the subject as it has been interpereted over the years and adding an original and more mature twist on a childhood memory. An excellently portrayed piece conveyed with precision, originality and flair.
