Tooth + Claw + All Things War by DoNotDelete Tooth + Claw + All Things War by DoNotDelete
It's like I reached into my soul and found a mirror.

Dynamon embodies something intangible, something about myself which I don't understand and cannot describe... but nevertheless, something that is a reflection of what I am at my very core.

Dynamon's theme music: [link]

The background was a nightmare to balance, and the textures kept misbehaving, but I think I'm finally finding the artistic direction I want to be heading in.

That's fine; Thanks for the comment!

Yeah, Dynamon has had a rough early life and needs somebody to look out for her.

Very cool, I love that you feel so strongly about him too, I feel that way about my Digimon, Ankimon c: Uhh.. And her brother Machimon who I totally did not just forget.

This is cool. Was it hard work to design this?

Well, it was hard to get her face right, but once I was happy with that the rest wasn't too difficult. I'm not sure I'm entirely happy with her forelimbs though.

Coming up with colour schemes is probably the hardest thing for me to do; I usually have an idea about what colours I want to use but often find that the colours I had in mind don't always work out.

I used the 'digital hazard' symbol that some Digimon have on their bodies, but other than that she's fairly original, yeah (not just a recolour, lol).

It's tough to be original and give off the Digimon feel all at once though.


Thanks.

Wow, that turned out great! I especially love the head.
It's a pretty interesting design, I like your partner. Glad you found a design which you are truly happy with! I always love how you give your characters songs. I think of that too, but I can never settle for one song in 95% of the cases haha.

The background is pretty good, it's neat to look at, yet it doesn't take away from the actual object. I think it turned out great despite the problems you had. The textures on Dynamon itself are a bit pale, but I don't think you wanted them to be that dominant anyways. Metal Digimon often have a few scratches and sometimes chipped parts, MAYBE that suggestion is usefull for you in any form or way.

Yeah, I'm not 100% on the song, I almost went with 30STM's "Search and Destroy", but "Vox Populi" is a bit more upbeat.

I thought the textures might be a bit too dominant actually, so if you think they're almost too pale I'm probably moving in the right direction.

I hope you like her Digivolutions too!


When I get around to them!

Well my problem for a theme song is rather that the personality changes a lot on the digivolutions (if that makes any sense). But I narrowed it down so far, so I'm getting there haha

Well as pale as the textures are, there is quite a lot of it. But yeah, you only notice it when you look really close. I don't know what you intended initally, I'm guessing what you did here (lots but not directly noticable texture), but you could go with the obvious route, like 2 big scratches on the back leg and a few small ones on the neck. These are just suggestions though, it's your Digimon it looks like you want it, and I'm generally not good with machines or metal parts so take my ideas with a pinch of salt.

Hm.. interesting Digimon design.
Somehow, all the Digimons' original design have something that resemblant all of them, and your Dynamon really get this!
BTW, your stylish BG still amazing me! =]
And I love when you put a theme music for your OC's and works! ^^

Thanks, on everything you said.

I try to give original characters a theme music if I can, I feel it gives them a little more personality or something, but it's not always easy to choose a piece of music.

I strongly agree with you! I also try to associate some characters of mine or a scene of my series with music! Besides giving to him more personality and "life", it also inspire me to make this!

It's a play on "sugar and spice and all things nice" which is what little girls are purportedly made from.

Not this little girl.


I don't know if that was used in PPG, but if I came up with something similar it's purely coincidental, I guess.

I thought so.

And yes, it is used in PPG. It's in the intro, and such.

The weaponry increases in the later Digivolutions.
