Triple Threat Triskele by Canyx Triple Threat Triskele by Canyx
A few of you might've saw this coming... I certainly didn't!

I scribbled the Charmeleon on the corner of a page while taking a break from commissions, thought it was cool, decided I should post a freebie on DA, and fleshed it out. Then I had the drive to create the other two in matching style and those happened.

And THEN I noticed that all three were pretty circular, so I thought, "Hey, I could put them all together in one design!"
But as you all know, I'm very particular about placement and how elements from one thing mesh with elements from another. It wasn't just a Copy-Paste job.
So I extended their 'attacks' by just a bit, and slightly edited position and size to create the extended spirals and this turned into a Triskele/Triskelion. It's not a perfect one, but especially from afar I'd say it looks pretty darn good! Whatever, I had never intended for them to be this way from the start so I'm just glad it worked out.

Well, I hope you guys enjoyed this bunch of old-school characters and what I've done with them : )

P.S. Got the name "Triple Threat" from Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Pokemon Trainer's smash ball move.

Hi! My friends and I found this piece on Google and wanted to use them for a group tattoo the 3 of us are getting. I just wanted to check with you first before we make ourselves into living canvasses for your work (which is awesome by the way!)

My best friend and I are planning on getting new tattoos. We were so happy when we found these awesome Pokemon tattoos. My friend and I have a tradition of getting matching tattoos, so now we're just trying to figure out which one of these three we are going to get. Such a hard decision!

Okej I'm concerned, you concider yourself "particular" about placement, then if I critizise the amount of water knocking the trisekele slightly out of balance, does that make me an obnoxious prick?
Reply
:iconcanyx:
Canyx Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2010
No, that means you have a fair and honest critique : ) (though I think this is more about the actual design than the placement of it)
I agree that the water might look a bit overpowering compared to the thinner 'attacks' of the other ones. I was either too lazy to change it or unwilling to draw the water in a way that is not wild and wave-like.
Oh well ;)
