See No Evil by Turtle-Arts See No Evil by Turtle-Arts
A quick sketch of Darkrai because I didn't feel like going to bed yet. :I

Darkrai's actually not a personal favorite of mine when it comes to design, but I like the idea of him. And actually, I used him for part of my my OC, Datu's story, which was fun. I didn't watch the movie with this guy or anything and I never actually played the games that he's in, but I thought the idea of a pokemon that causes nightmares just by being close to it was cool. But I like the idea of Darkrai actually being an evil creature, and not a mamby pamby little guy like what he seemed to be more of in the show.

So here's how my version of Darkrai works, a.k.a. the version of him that I created for Datu's story.

Basically, Darkrai is a spirit living deep in a cave who comes out of his den once a month on the new moon. He only comes out then because Darkrai can only survive in the darkest of areas, and even moonlight is too strong for him. But when he does come out, Darkrai spends his nights above ground sewing the seeds of nightmares to spread throughout the world. He does not attack people without reason, but it is forbidden to look at him, and any person who dares to seek him out is subject to punishment. And Darkrai's form of punishing those who look at him is to cast them into endless nightmare that drives them to madness and eventually death.

Yup, so that's how my version of this pokemon works. :I Oh, and for his funky red collar crest thing, I decided to make it entirely out of hands that wrap around and hide his face. Which I'm figuring all the hands can move individually and open up to reveal Darkrai's actual face, but he only does that to people he's going to kill. Evil, evil pokemon. >_< So yes, enjoy my quick little Darkrai sketch. :>

He inflicts madness upon all who see him, and he only comes out during the new moon...

*looks at the moon calendar*


I'm safe for now. :iconmingplz:
