Tapu Koko EX by bbninjas Tapu Koko EX by bbninjas
It took me a week.... but it's dooooone! :la:

As soon as I saw the Tapu Koko leak for Generation VII, I absolutely knew that I had to make it into an EX on some SUPERSIZE blanks! I think it is a significant improvement to my FA Gardevoir-EX - much more dynamic. Fun fact: Despite being a guardian deity, Tapu Koko may not actually come to your aid in times of need. That's where the Fickle Guard comes from.

uh, you do know that fairy types resists fighting types, because he's a fairy type (if you don't know).

It's because official Pokemon cards generally do not pay attention to secondary typing. So, it is very likely that if an official Lightning Tapu Koko-EX was released, it would have weakness to Fighting, and if a Fairy Tapu Koko-EX was released, it would have weakness to Metal. (The irony! xD)

That was fast. I would probably take two and a half weeks to create something like that. Good job!

Did you use a website for this or is it something else?
Reply
:iconbbninjas:
bbninjas Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I would never, ever use a website, because they are inaccurate, don't give me any flexibility and use ugly watermarks; and I think they're the cheap way of making a card (:x). Instead, I use the lesser known Corel DRAW (for the art) and Corel PHOTOPAINT (for the card), the latter of which is very similar to Photoshop or GIMP.

Well, that was a very detailed answer. And my brother used Corel Draw for a few years.
 His.. things were awesome, but I've never heard or Corel Photopaint.

Corel DRAW is really nice - it makes beautiful vectors and other great vector resources. :3

Photopaint is basically an extension of Corel DRAW. The limitation of Photopaint is that it doesn't do text nor outlines nicely, so I have to import my text-less card into DRAW, which is a bit dodge. :/
