Steeleon you can se under this text.

S T E E L E O N

TYPE: Steel.
ABILITY: Sturdy

STEELEON evolves from EEVEE while knowing
Metal Claw and holding Metal Coat.

I prefer the first one you made, not hating on this but just my opinion.

This is so very cute and well-designed, but for some reason, it doesn't strike me as much as the original does. It's difficult to pinpoint my thoughts on this exactly, but overall the 'robotic' look you were going for just doesn't quite do it for me. If you were going for a unique look, then I don't begrudge you for that because it's never a bad idea to experiment (and some of the best things were made by accident!) but in comparison to Cloudeon and the rest of the Eeveelution family, the less-natural look of Steeleon here makes the Fakemon stick out oddly. The original looked more... organic for some reason, more natural, like along the lines of Lairon/Aggron and how their steel armor doesn't make them look like machines, but more like something you could expect to find lurking in the wild (yeah, I know I sound stupid, lol)

Overall, this is beautifully drawn and designed so please don't let what I said get you down. I can be very nitpicky (and petty!) sometimes and an Eeveelution based on the Steel-type is going to be hard as hell to create whatever you base it on. I still like it a lot, but Cloudeon's design appeals to me more. :)

You know what? I agree on what you are saying, and yes it is very difficult to create an "organic" looking steel type. I mean. The first two pokemon that I think of beein steel types, are Steelix (which is part ground) and Klinklang. And the last one are very robotic-ish. So maybe the older version I made of the steel type eeveelution is more natural, but the design was too close to Donpahn.

Oh, its not getting me down at all! I appreciate the comeback A LOT! It is really helping me to think in different patterns or what I should say. Thanks! :hug:

That is true. I guess now that it you mention it, the original does look a little like Donphan with the dark metallic plating. I understand exactly what you mean in how difficult it is creating 'organic' looking Steel-types, which is why I found it difficult to comment earlier without sounding horrible and petty. There are many Steel-types that look both organic and robotic, and being an artist, it's completely your right as to what your creations ought to look like. :)

I'm glad what I said didn't get you down though, thank you for taking my comment so well and replying with your thoughts on the matter! Sometimes I get a little nervous about commenting because not everybody appreciates such critique, but thankfully you're not like that at all. I'm not too sure on what else to say apart from that other than you've done a beautiful job with both versions. Like you said, it's very difficult to get a good design going because of how varied Steel-types can appear, and creating an 'organic'-looking eeveelution made from metal is a damn hard thing to do. :(
