Espeon : Mage staff

Co-Op work by
Nichi Kira: editing
Revan Kusanagi: idea and concept


Revan: Here is the next one of the Eevee Evo Series. Espeon, the 4th of the Eevee Evo Tree. And like I said previously, the look would be an homage to a Final Fantasy weapon. This is inspired from Final Fantasy X, Yuna's Summoner Staff. Now we couldn't make it exatly identical because to Nichi, if it doesn't have some sort of blades, it aint worth uploading. >_> Ain't that right Nichi?

Nichi: Yes, for me I want to consistent with my blade series. Even if espeon is a psychic type pokemon and a mage staff is a perfect weapon for it.. I still put a blade on it.. it can cast spells(special attacks) and i can also be a mellee weapon.

I know but it made the staff look all weird. Anyways, I digress. We had to alter the initial look but still keep some of the original elements of the Summoner's Staff. The jewel at the base of the staff head represents the jewel on Espeon's forehead.

Now I have a favor to ask of you all. Please, I repeat, PLEASE give me your most honest thoughts on this look. This is the first time I thought of a design like this with blades and internally....Im not very content on how it came out. We didn't want to leave you guys waiting for too long. So give us very detailed Critiques and your honest thoughts. Dont hold anything back.

I dont like it. Espeon is my favorite Pokemon ever. And a staff doesn't really fit her. I think she would be better as a ornate katana. But that is what Eevee is, so maybe not. I just think it is too impractical. Nevermind magic, that thing would be heavy and would barely cut. I don't know, it just doesn't feel Espeon-y. If you where to improve it, give it a  really pronounced blade at the top. That would be... better. Its not bad, I just think it doesn't represent espeon too well. 
I'm actually a large fan of this look, although I must say... the pointed blade at the top center seems like it should be a bit longer and more pronounced, I love the look to this and it's very unique.

I am so gonna make a priestess holding this staff with an espeon at her side. I'll be sure to give you credit!

Definitely fits Espeon. Reminds me of cherry blossoms 8D

Although...Maybe make the whiskers(?) act like tassels? I don't really know, but the parts that represent Espeon's whiskers look to be stiff
