how to draw lucario

Hi everybody, welcome to a new NIL-Tech drawing tutorial: "Pokémon Lucario". Lucario is a character of the Pokémon anime as well as a computer game series. Known as the Aura Pokémon, it can feel the Auras of all things. It is a Fighting and Steel Pokémon. It is seen in the games Pokémon Dimond and Pearl and the movie Lucario and the Mystery of Mew. In an interview with Pokémon Diamond and Pearl director Junichi Masuda, he noted Lucario's name as one of the hardest to make, since they wished to make it work both the Japanese and Americans.


Here are some interesting facts about Lucario:

1. It has developed four black appendages that hang down from its head, which rise when Lucario reads or controls aura, unique energy that it senses.

2. Lucario can study this energy to predict the movements of its competitors and also track their quarry.

3. They also have the power to control this energy offensively, in the form of eruptive balls of energy.

4. Lucario can understand human speech and can communicate with people through telepathy.

5. As MegaLucario, its cream fur ends up being much longer, and its thighs slim down. It develops even more spikes on the back of its paws, which have transformed crimson. It likewise gets spikes on both of its feet, which have become crimson as well. Its previously red eyes are now orange-colored. Its aura-sensing appendages grow much longer, and 2 of them are tipped in crimson. Its shoulders also possess a spike each.
