Pokemon wasn't really an inspiration, the aesthethic ended up this way since I translated this from a pencil drawing while keeping the lines as close to the pencil drawing as possible (an aesthetic choice I'm trying to drift away from).
The idea behind the picture was creating a creature that felt small in comparison to its surroundings, but still strong, hence, I went for a gecko who could weild a giant, Thor-like hammer. As to where / who are we looking at, this drawing is intended to be one of the cards for a card game, so the only important aspect was to keep the character clear, centered, and easily recognizable.
Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire aesthetic inspiration?
What's the context behind the picture? Where are we and who are we looking at (or does it not matter)?
