Guitars of Opelucid City by GenkoNoMiko Guitars of Opelucid City by GenkoNoMiko
My friend, Akemi, and her Zekrom playing electric guitars. :D

This is the corresponding fanart to my "Violins of Opelucid City" which can be seen here [link]

The idea for this came up a while back when my friend and I first started playing Pokemon Black and White. I bought Pokemon Black (because I wanted Reshiram) and she bought Pokemon White (because she wanted Zekrom). After playing through the games, it came to our attention that Opelucid City was different in both games: In Black, Opelucid City is more technological and futuristic (supposedly meant to represent Zekrom), and in White, Opelucid City is more rustic and natural (supposedly meant to represent Reshiram). In each version, there is a person playing an instrument right next to the Pokemon center. In Black, it is a keytarist, while in White, it is an erhu player. This got me thinking that it would be cool if I drew a fanart of me and Reshiram playing the instrument represented in White's Opelucid City and a fanart of my friend and Zekrom playing the instrument represented in Black's Opelucid City. I decided to go with electric guitars (instead of keytars) and violins (instead of erhus) because I think that they are better contrasting instruments. ^^

Special thanks to Akemi who designed the outfits on both this piece and the "Violins of Opelucid City" piece. :3

For my first time drawing Zekrom, I think this turned out pretty good. Surprisingly, Zekrom is so much more complicated than Reshiram. X)

:iconclapplz: nice work XDD

and yes, Zekrom is a heck of a lot more complicated than Reishram DX

It was a really neat idea to draw them like this though :D I was thinking about drawing Reishram in black city and zekrom in white forest since the two of these things are different :D

I like the concept of both drawings Kiyoko-chan. I had to look a little closer to see Kirisu's guitar pick but it is there.

Good job! *thumbs up* o(^-^)b

Hurray! I sensed this coming. It's a perfect contrast to Reshiram's drawing. One is bright and vintage, the other is dark and cool, but both are terrific and wonderful. Great work!
