The Fire Mage by Sareii The Fire Mage by Sareii
We've not yet had true confirmation about this being real, but far too many leaks that I can't see it NOT being real. And a lot of people aren't happy with choosing Fennekin anymore. Admittedly, it looks silly in the model (so does Charizard X), but I still love it and had to draw it. I was a little disappointed, because I was expecting a more mystical design, but it does stick to the mage theme and I quite love it.

My main problem is the lack of a stick. Both Fenniken's and Braixen's entries involved sticks, and went to the the length of giving Braixen a magic wand. Oh well, for now I'm going to assume it dose have a staff but the leak didn't show it (had it in the folds of the robe or something.) Also, why are it's ears not on fire. sorry to rant, it's just that this picture helped me gain faith in fennekin as a starter

It actually has the stick. The official artwork revealed it does.

The reason it has no stick is cause it goes with the idea of witches being able to channel their magic without a wand or stick. Braixen is still a witch in training until it evolves int the powerful mage Delphox. So powerful it doesn't need to wand to  attack and it can channel attacks without it. or that's my interpretation mainly based on tumblr posts haha. I'm waiting for an official reveal though cause maybe that what the official info will say.  Also official art always changes my mind on a Pokemon.

I saw!! My theory ruined. But happy it has the stick still. :D I like it better now after seeing it's official art than I did when I only saw the crappy looking leaks. The official artwork looks way better than the game model in this case.

I do agree it's final form is kind of disappointing. I think your artwork makes it look cooler than it actually is! :XD:

As much as I dislike the Delphox evo leave it to dA artist to clean it up and make me like it. If this really is the final evo I hope it looks better in game because that leaked sprite is not doing it any favors. Think its too much dress/robe fur and not enough leg.

Personally, I find this design nicer then the other final fennekin evolutions I've seen. I mean, this one still has its tail, thank goodness and looks more mystical then the others. :) Thank you for making this picture.

Yeah, everyone's art looks far better than the actual in-game model. This wonderful drawing gives me some respect for the design. I think if they had just revealed official art of the evolutions before they were leaked, the reaction probably wouldn't have been as negative. Those blurry photos of simple 3D models aren't a fair representation compared to clear and detailed 2D images.

I agree, the problem seems to really be that the in-game model doesn't seem very flattering. I'm looking forward to it though, I'm still totally picking Fenekin, and come on! IT'S FIRE/PSyYCHIC! isn't that what everybody wanted?

love the pose. So many design choices for this fox, and honestly it is disappointing. not bad, but the designers went waaaay to far in trying to make it look like mage. Somewhere along the line it lost something. Either way love the artwork for it. great job as always.

Wow, this kind of makes me like it more. It looks great in this style. If only the final evo looked as similar.
