So here's my thing, colored in.
This was what I originally wanted to do, but when the psychic subtype was announced I completely forgot about it, not realising that actually worked well.
So this is essentially an idea pilfered off of Bogleech
, i.e. an assassin bug Pokemon that covers itself in the corpses of its prey as camouflage/bait. This particular fellow's body was based on Platymeris biguttatus
, and it uses the disturbing eyespots on its wings to hypnotize its poison and fighting-subtyped victims (because of the weakness, natch), before killing them with its proboscis and digesting their organs. The left-over pieces of shell are fixed together with specially-made fluids to form terrifying chimeric armor! sad that the adhesives used can't actually stand up to battle eh? The weapons it fashions this way allow it to channel more powerful bug and psychic moves as well!
Since it's best to treat others as one would have them treat yourself, here's some feedback!
I think you're doing yourself a disservice in making all these essentially-complete ideas; you're giving both us and yourself too much choice for a final sub, meaning that it'll be three times harder to come to a final decision. That said, your latest one doesn't strike out as being all that remarkable; it feels like a compromise between the other two, with the green and the crystal ball together like that. I think that you should ditch the ball on this version, and make those dowsing antennae _huge_. The wing things are really wishy-washy too, they don't seem to be doing anything to contribute to the whole picture.
yours looks much too much like an ice-type with that crystal on its last segment. I'd suggest ditching the blue for something more pink or purple, as the rest of the design is generic enough that any other color would construe its own type. You might also want to make those wings look more natural by giving them more curves. I also feel I should remind you that your final submission cannot have glow effects extending beyond the outline.
yours frightens me a lot, though that's not to say that it's bad. I think that a more vibrant color scheme would be more appropriate though; the current WIP seems a bit visceral with all the fleshy reds and bile-y yellows splashed around.
while I have no right to argue color choice (considering my riotous sub), I think that you could stand to simplify the patterning on the abdomen, as that is going to be really difficult to portray in a sprite without making the mon huge.
