This is awesome! If Mega Arcanine was real I'd love this to be his design.

No problem! I love the idea that mega Arcanine would be a fairy type as well due to it being inspired by the legend. ^^

fairy-type on arcanine? lmao no
fairy typing for arcanine makes no sense at all. all of the fairy pokemon at the moment are based on modern "fairies" or old folktale faeries. and before you pull out granbull as a defense, fairy-type granbull doesn't make any kind of sense either; as i just said, compared to other fairy pokemon, it doesn't fit in that category. that would be like making shiftry or gengar fairy types because they're based on spirits too.
plus, while arcanine is described as beautiful, a fairy typing gives the impression of delicate. arcanine is not.
i would've tried to do more with its fire typing and tried to bring its firey theme to the foreground of its design. made it pop.

i really hate to say this, but this is full of non-organic looking material like the armor and collar-- arcanine is a pokemon whose design looks 100% organic, adding those is a really bad move as it A) adds too much contrast to the rest of his design and B) really makes it look like a digimon, and i really hate saying pokemon look like digimon, but this actually does. they look like removable pieces added to him by a trainer, not something he would "grow" from evolution.
looks like he has lipstick on- he's a dog/cat thing, they don't have lips like that. the fire is in odd places; middle of the tail and top of the head are the worst places for thin fire trails like that. the eyebrows/beardwhiskerthings look odd, very eastern dragon-like which is very bad considering its fairy-typing and dragon and fairy are kind of counterparts. 

good art but if this was canon i could see waves and waves of hate going to it. x.x;

Fairy makes sense for Arcanine because of it's origins as a Chinese Guardian for Temples. Honestly this design fits the Pokemon's origin nicely. Please before you make comments like this do some research beforehand.

i know very well arcanine's origins, but the fairy typing is dumb. sorry. no real reason to back that up, i just don't think its a great idea. it just seems every "fan-designer" of mega evos just wants to make everything and its mother a fairy-type.
it'd also give him a weakness to poison and lower his resistance to steel. the only good it would do is give him a dark-type resist and a fighting-type resist.

and the design is such a small change but it doesn't do arcanine justice. literally all he did was add armor to him and call it a mega. its boring and it looks ugly.

That's actually a brilliant modified typing, aesthetically and competitively. I wouldn't like some below suggest Pixilate be its ability as its Extremespeed would be pretty ridiculous--I don't even know if Arcanine needs a Fairy move at all, to be honest.

Would love to see a fire/fairy combo, and a fairy type that isn't so feminine looking (besides Granbull). This idea is great.

Shishis are so cool, and your design and interpretation couldn't be more spot on. We need more Fairies in-game anyways, and Mega Arcanine would make for an awesome Fairy-type addition.
