Evolving by Esepibe Evolving by Esepibe
I dont know why,but lately,I ve been on a "crush" with the Gardevoir line.Especially Kirlia.
(Not THAT kind of "crush" of course!...Google is filled with a lot of that crap anyway...just type "Kirlia",and prepare to throw up your meal.)

I started to notice some character potential on this evo line.This is perhaps the most human Pokemon in the whole franchise.

So,the reason of why I haven't uploaded anything else the last couple of days is because Ive been busy doing a big croquis filled with Ralts/Kirlia/Gardevoir poses and expresions.

While working on this croquis,I came up with this.

This is basically a Kirlia evolving slowly into a Gardevoir,instead of doing it at once like in the games.
Or a Kirlia entering in the "teen age" if you wish to call it that way...XD

(Girlia?,Kirdevoir?...whatever)

And I had some fun mixing the colors here:

This is obviously a quick coloring,and its far from complete.




EDIT:By popular demand,I added "Kirlade"!.

Again,the clear green on arms,chest and legs is the pigmentation either dissapearing (legs) or appearing (chest and arms)

The Dawn stone in there is kinda obvious:If a male Kirlia from a tribe is destined to become a warrior,it needs to be exposed to the radiation of a Dawn stone during growth/evolution phase.

So, the one on the the right is a male Kirlia, right?

Please ignore my earlier comments. It's called "going overboard". I still like the piece though.

Hmmm... wouldn't it be "Kirlad"? the Kirl from Kirlia mixed with "Lad" for a more male-sounding name?

love it all the same!

Funny thing about saying it's the most human, it's really a member of the Indeterminate egg group, inhabited by slugs and ghosts, which means humans are closer related to Lucario and Buneary than Kirlia.

The human-like egg group ALSO includes volbeat so... yeah no.

My personal headcannon is that humans are a a branch species of the ralts line that lost most of thier abilities, before they became fairy. Remember psychics exist, and so do aura adepts (aka fighting) for humans so..

Humans being capable of psychic powers doesn't mean we're in the Indeterminate egg group. I mean, the Humanshape egg group actually has a lot more psychic- and fighting-type pokemon than the Indeterminate.
Volbeat is actually more human than Kirlia or Gardevoir are.

These are awesome! Lol. I don't even think the hearts were neccesary to play the romance angle on these two. Now you need to stick a Ralts/Kirlia behind them whistling. Come to think of it, a comic could be done from that.

hey dude! :D I was bored a few days ago, looking through DA for gallade/gardevoir, and i find this. This pic inspired me enough to make a rough draft of a new story! :D Can't give you details though, because it would be *SPOILER!* just note me if you want to hear it.

That is so cool, the Kirlia looks really cute! X3

I have a "crush" on Gardevoir too! Too me, she's one of THE best Pokémon ever, right next to Typhlosion (who are both in the #1 spot for me)! =D

I've always liked the idea of the levels meaning the age of the Pokemon, like if this was teenage like 15 it would be half-Ralts half-Kirlia, and then a Kirlia would become a Gardevoir during young adulthood.
