ARTICUNO

The making of Articuno was brought on by the request for me to make Lugia.  I remember taking my brother to see the movie “Pokemon Movie: 2000.”  The three legendary birds (Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres) were featured in the movies.  I am going to make Zapdos and Moltres soon.  I have also included the color lists for both the normal version of Articuno and the shiny version of Articuno.
