A very talented Pokémon fan creates an incredible 3D shadowbox representing one of the most adorable Pokémon, Hisuian Growlithe.
the Pokemon franchise is one of the most successful of all time, due to the immense popularity of the Pokemon animated series, later video games and trading cards. The latest title in the franchise, Pokemon Legends: Arceus achieved incredible commercial success across the globe while receiving mostly positive reviews from critics.
Since Pokemon has become a thing, fans have shown their appreciation for the series through various artworks. Also, with the advent of the internet age, this fan art became more common and could be easily shared with other gamers. These works of art include everything from traditional drawings and paintings to digitally created and 3D printed works of art. For example, a player created an adorable digital Pokemon Leafon fan art waiting for a train.
Like these talented artists, another Pokemon fan decided to show off his creative prowess. Reddit user IllustriousParsley2 recently uploaded an image featuring a unique and innovative type of Pokemon art, a shadow box. The user dedicated the shadowbox to Hisuian Growlithe, one of the most adorable Pokemon in Pokemon Legends: Arceus. Notably, the shadowbox contains a small 3D sculpture of Hisuian Growlithe in a rocky and volcanic region. Naturally, most of the Reddit community raved about IllustriousParsley2’s creation in the comments section, while many also inquired about purchasing the Hisuian Growlithe shadowbox.
For the uninitiated, Hisuian Growlithe is an alternate version of the popular Pokemon, Growlite. While the original Growlithe is a Fire-type Pokémon, the Hisuian Growlithe has a dual Fire/Rock type based on its region. Additionally, the two variants have distinct physical attributes and look quite different. Hisuian Growlithe has slightly darker orange/red fur with a gray mane and tail, while the original Growlithe’s mane and tail are beige. However, both versions of Growlithe have black stripes on their back and legs. Besides the physical differences, the two Growliths have a markedly contrasting behavior. The original Growlithe is known to be loyal, friendly, and bonds easily with humans. In contrast, Hisuian Growliths take longer to connect with humans as they have lived in isolation for several generations.
Interestingly, this isn’t the first time Hisuian Growlithe has been the subject of fan art. Many works of art are floating around the internet depicting the Fire/Rock type Pokemon in a bunch of different ways. A player created a 3D print Pokemon figure of Hisuian Growlithe, while another used TCG energy cards for their art.
As these fans create Pokemon fan art, many more are speculating on the release date of Pokemon Scarlet and Purple. The game is expected to hit the market later this year, and many believe it could arrive in late November.
Pokemon Legends: Arceus is now available for Nintendo Switch.
