Tentacool and Tentacruel by Ninjendo Tentacool and Tentacruel by Ninjendo
Say hello to the Zubat's of the seas! How many times did you see these while surfing? Despite their common occurrence, Tentacruel is actually a pretty decent Pokemon. Show some love to these underrated pests!

POINTLESS FACT: I never want to draw another tentacle again (oo kinky)

The lighting on the blue and red areas (shells and eyes? Except they're not eyes) especially are absolutely astounding *o*

Yeah I agree. I mean, I didn't really like them at first myself to be honest but now I kind of do for some odd reason xD

I like to think of these Pokemon as 'growers', you don't really like them at first because all it seems is that they get in your way but once you take the time to know them and try using them, you lose that hatred :3

Yeah I know what you mean, they just tend to grow on ya xD It was like that with Gengar and some others for me too.

Hmm but out of curiosity, did you ever tend to dislike some pokemon?

I never cared for Onix or the Geodude line, I dunno, there are so much more better rock types...

Ah I see~ I know what you mean about that. I still don't like geodude's line even now xD Though I do have a liking for Steelix :3

So true... But Tentacrule surprisingly has some decent defenses :) Tentacool sucks... but like you stated earlier. They are the zubats of the sea ._.

Great quality in here :D The tentacles from both look perfect, and tentacle are quite a pain to draw :XD: Zubats and Tentacools should make an unstoppable alliance!

Woah I just noticed that Tentacruel has a beaky think that the front.

POINTLESS FACT: I thought the red shiny things were tentacool/tentacruel's eyes for quite a long time



...Also I like pointless facts

Looks great. The only small nitpicky thing I can find, is that the tentacle all the way on the left looks a bit choppy at the start. Loving the shading and everything else though. Especially enjoy the position Tentacool is in. Looks neat. :3
