finally a mega gallade that doesnt look like something from out of megaman. i mean i like megaman just as much as the other guy but the inspiration for gallade was taken from chivalrous samurai and spartans, yet his design and pokedex entry shows that gallade fight fast intercepting an enemy blow and ending the fight with one hit.
i like your design because its more lighter and implies speed unlike the robotic, heavy mega gallade i saw on deviant art.
if i could draw like you i would probably draw mega gallade with.....the bottom half of a robe or something similar to gardevoir skirt but fashioned like the bottom half of a samurai jack or rurouni kenshin robe but with cuts to show off a little of his legs. i would also heavily extend the blade increasing its length and design it so that it doesnt extend from the elbows but is permanantly fixed to the outside of his whole arm like an actual tonfa-like sword but longer.
i would then some how redisign the spartan head horn thing and the chest spike with the design philosophy of sleek simple and aerodynamic....kinda like yours actually, i like what you did with the chest/head peices.
i like my idea because i like the thought of gallade having a purely fighting mega form as a contrast to gardevor ballroom form. yin and yang you know i also like the thought of seeing mega gallade fighting like anime samurais like kenshin, speedily one shoting people with one hit from his swords before they realize gallade even moved
something like that i would draw(if i could draw that is)..... even though we both have different visions on what mega gallade could look like, out of all the pictures on deviant art this what i would like gallade to look like the most
...beautiful! I could see mega gardivoir and this mega gallade dancing by themselves in the middle of a large marble and gold ballroom with soft red velvet drapes and sparking chandeliers and pokemon standing around the side watching them with awe.... Sigh....

This is absolutely perfect. I was looking for different design ideas of Mega Gallade and this is the best one I have seen so far. He's knightly, a perfect mix of fancy and fresh from the fight. Love it.
You know, this is one of the best Mega Gallade I've seen so far. If the cape-like veil were to have longer, sharper points and the legs were to be thicker on the upper legs and perhaps slightly more armored, I'd call it a nigh-perfect Mega Gallade (since nothing's perfect ).
