Cambrian was when we had our aliens by Weirda-s-M-art Cambrian was when we had our aliens by Weirda-s-M-art
I WISH I COULD HAVE MORE TIME FOR THIS GUYS, BUT I WAS HAD TO RUSH LIKE CRAZY WITH THE BACKGROUND TO GET THIS ON TIME:iconcryforeverplz:
ppl who know my stuff know I would love to spend eternity to caress details,
but :iconpoke-fanclub: doesn't accept entries after Sunday end :(

There were planned 3 Tynamos, 2 Cradilys and ~8 more Lileeps. EEEH at last Anorith and THE MAIN STAR, Armaldo, are done liek I wished :iconhappytearplz:
- - -
IMPORTANT! THIS ARMALDO IS INTERPRET AS ARMALDO SUBSPECIES, SO IT'S NOT BASED ON ANOMALOCARIS AND MANTIS
SHRIMP AS I COULD DO(especially for claws), BUT IT'S BASED ON ANOTHER ANOMALOCARID CALLED TAMISIOCARIS BOREALIS.


I know...more like "BORINGalis" 'cause who cares about artists sharing their commentary under artwork?
Maybe you? I always love to share poke-science trivia mixed with my love to paleontology, so I think
it wouldn't hurt to see some fascinating animals that were REAL. :love:
- - -
This drawing was drawn for :iconpoke-fanclub: weekly "draw me a Pokemon" contest.
Even if I won't win like with my Scrafty entry, I don't care. Same as with Scrafty flying on Honchkrow,
I've had so much fun on this even if artwork was a bit strugglesome at some parts.

IT'S BECAUSE I friggin' LOVE CAMBRIAN PERIOD AND ARMALDO NEEDS SOME FANART.

If I'll win, I'll call a Pokemon that also lacks fanart and if not Poke-fanclub's weekly contest,
there might be no better chance for it...

A Barbaracle.Barbaracle Icon 
Some people knew it... :iconheplz: it's no secret I don't wanna be the only one who will show something
with that weird Pokemon.

- - -
Let me do something way more amazing than this drawing
or thought behind. VIDEOS SHOWING CAMBRIAN FAUNA.

www.youtube.com/watch?v=LbhGWD…

It would be very nice if you could also watch this vid to just know about this amazing period of time
www.youtube.com/watch?v=R5_XLV…

Do you know what was before dinosaurs?
Ah right, you're not very familiar with what was before famous dinosaurs.
I can tell you, long, long time ago before the life forms inhabitated the land, before even fish existed,
we had...ALIENS. :iconaliensguyplz:

This Armaldo, as I said, is inspired/based on Tamisiocaris, which was like a whale of its period times.
Anorith is based on my favourite Anomalocaris species found in chengjiang.
Kabutops also got an extra attention from me. ESPECIALLY KABUTOPS.
I love both 1st gen fossils even if my fav is of course an Aerodactyl(called fossil Pokemon, not revived
frm fossil, WEIRD AND GENIUS! :icongenius-plz: ). It's because even if I'm not loving trilobites
and ammonites, they're just fascinating having SUCH VARIETY OF FORMS! That's why, let me show you
one of my favourite trilobites, Comura:

www.fossilera.com/fossils/amaz…

www.fossilmall.com/EDCOPE_Ente…

Now you can see why this Kabutops looks a bit different :D

Tynamos were going to be obviously Haikouichtys in my mind since I just saw them...! I can't help it, PREHISTORYYY...!

Maybe you should do a Precambrian version. Maybe it would have Solosis!

yaaaaaay! :iconshaplz:

I'm still amazed by the fact we have Pokemon based on such intriguing animal not many know.

out of curious, have you ever wondered what animal could be good base for Armaldo?
I have one, but I don't wanna throw it first to ruin your thought (well that's not how I wanted  it to sound, but oh well :roll: )

all that really comes to mind is some sort of Armored prosauropod or a terrestrial sea scorpion like in your picture here
or you could do what i have seen many times with a theropod scorpion thing

So is this prehistoric Hoenn
Reply

Weirda-s-M-art Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yes and no; tectionic plates moving change the original position of fossil.
Because cambrian period is from really long period time of the planet, the fossils found in Hoenn might come from the place which was Kalos!

Paleontpologist found most of Anorith and Lileep fossils, because of good conditions that allowed them to stay untouched so long. There are no Onixes in this region and self-exploding geodudes doesn't live in the desert where the fossils were found. Some are in truly marvelous state~

Were Groudon and Kyogre in existence during this time

Also was there a Pleistocene Era in any of the known Pokémon regions, forgive me if this question sounds dumb

I'm glad my work on those two fossil Pokemon worked very well, I was inspired by colorful mantis shrimp, because I base Armaldo a bit on it :P
it has to be something....

Kabutops in my eyes is like an underwater version of praying mantis, so it IS dangerous, yes :D

Hmmm...who knows? Kabutops might not win with Armaldo, Lileeps has grass moves, but I planned here some scared Tynamos...guess from what they got scared ;)
(I plan to update this drawing someday, because ony two-three Lileeps?! that's not me! and those Tynamos-Haikouichtys I always wanted ;^; )

Omg it's like people drawing combusken as penises, but I try my best
to not to draw Apollo as penis. And I don't think they're like penises...just
tentacles like tentacruel/tentacool. But you did them wonderful!

:iconweirda-s-m-art:
Weirda-s-M-art Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I've never thought of tentacles, because simply...tentacle end so thin and are longer...even if Octillery has realy short tentacles, they're just shaped like them at last :P
Tentacruel always looked odd there, but it's more of medusa than  octopus, so I rather see clusters or thinner tentacles :shrug:

as for the troube with cartoonish Combusken, I guess simply make its "red pants" fluffy and less shaped as circles,but as feathered avian leg(can be chiocken, can be...dinosaur of course as ref...! :iconlainloveplz:)

something between those in your style would make Combusken blessed from its "curse" if you want ;)

Time to update my long playlist,woo~ :la:

Maybe I'll will update later, the .psd file is not deleted yet! :D
