Vaporeon's origins are uncertain, though it could be based on a cross between aquatic creatures, felines, and canids. Its feline and fish characteristics may mean that Vaporeon may be a visual pun on the catfish. The fins and dorsal lining may be based off different types of tropical fish. Its ears resemble a mix between a fish's fin and a fennec fox's or caracal's ears. It also shares characteristics with mermaids. Vaporeon may also be inspired by the Telchines of Greek mythology, or the Merlion, a national symbol of Singapore. Vaporeon's resemblance to both carnivorans and cetaceans could be based on primitive whales, such as Kutchicetus. Its fringe around its neck resembles a ruff.
VAPOREON IS MY FAVEEEEEE AND THIS IS FANTASTIC
I'm astounded by the colouration you did on this piece. It doesn't matter to me that the lilypads aren't that detailed... A job very well done!
