Though not as popular as the Eevolutions last week, Absol’s still got a good following in the art scene,  We’ve got a selection of 4 great pieces from the past month from deviantArt here.

Mega Absol by Rixnane

This is my favorite piece of the night.  I like the closeness and the intimacy that this piece provides.  The coloring and the sharpness of Absol is wonderful.

My Little Absol by DaisyDuke14

The title may mislead you a little bit, but the idea that young Pokemon are smaller is a good one.  I like the tiny Absol here.  The art work is more cartoonish, but it makes the Absol parent and child more fun and lighthearted.

Chibi Absol Sprite by Lawlawruu

This is the first time I’ve chosen a sprite in these art selections.  Also, this is Lawlawruu’s first sprite as well!  I love the cuteness, which I attribute to the face and the cute bobbing.  If you’re not smiling while looking at that sprite, then I don’t know what’ll make you smile!

Absol by PokeCrystals

And lastly, we come to the Absol figurine.  This one is not for sale yet on her Etsy, but you can check out more of her work there. I just love the detail and the attention to detail in this sculpture.  You can keep up with the latest piece from PokeCrystals on her Facebook Page or her Etsy.  Maybe you’ll find something that can go on your bookshelf!
