This ended up taking a huge amount of time to do. It started with a rather odd idea i had about a week and a half ago. Something along the lines of "I should model Jolteon in a power plant, with realistic fur and all that sort of thing". THAT resulted in the consumption of most of my free time since. Why Jolteon? *shrug* My 11 year old self thought it looked cool back in the day when there were only 151 pokemon and I could recite those from memory.
Overall, I'm pretty happy with the result. The power plant I think looks very good. The Jolteon model is...well, I've spent so much brainpower on it over the past few days I can't think sanely about it anymore. Somethings i felt turned out great (the fur) others, not so great (the face). All in all, I'll call it a win since if nothing else I got a HUGE amount of character modeling practice in.

Please, PLEASE download the full size, there's quite a few little hidden bits around the back that you won't really see in the deviantart web version. Plus you get a cool wallpaper out of it!
