Magnamon by Mearns Magnamon by Mearns
Armour digivolve!

The unusual golden DigiEgg, one of miracles, changes V-Mon into a form of limitless potential - Magnamon!

Magnamon has been on my most-wanted list to paint, as his gold armour is something I've had a ton of ideas for in terms of expressing. Generally, I wanted to bring across gold as a substance and not as a shiny metallic yellow, which virtually every single painting of him has understandably done.

To this end, I used texture very, very heavily - but also in discretion. It was much harder to paint than I expected, in terms of making sure the texture, chrome hues and specularity worked in conjunction.

Digimon, Magnamon Toei Animation, Bandai

Ah........ nice to see you. I'm Korean and I want to play a costume of magnamon and imperial dramon. 
And I will prepare their 3d source and make them as paper craft. 
I am going to build them as human sized model and wear them.  

I could find 3ds file of wargreymon and omegamon. but I couldn't get magnamon and I-dramon that I want to make. 

Can you share this magnamon's 3d file and I.D.'s? I really want to play their costume and I will never spread your work. And I can provide my personal information to make you trust me.

 I really want to get 3d source frome you and I will take a film that I costumed it. 

If you have interested at me, please mail to my E-mail adress. (wjddusqkd9@naver.com)

To me, all of this is perfect save his shoulder armor. I thought that those went over his arms...:shrug:

Still though, awesome job!

You're right - they do! It's part of the problem with the way some Digimon were designed, they aren't actually that flexible. Paildramon's shoulder pads gave me a similar issue as well.

Thanks for the feedback! :)

Yeah, I saw you mention that in the description of your Paildramon piece. :shrug: Oh well, no Digimon is perfect. Save WarGreymon, Omnimon, need I go on? X3

No problem! I know I always appreciate feedback! :meow:

Oh wow, interesting..
the black background means a lot of contrast, but I think you know that.
the clear lines of the armor are really great, seeing as you don't really have "outlines" in general. :0
Maybe I shouldn't talk, since I fail at that a lot, but I can't make out where the light source is.. surely somewhere in the front of him, but the shading is a bit odd.
But yeah, even though some of that may sound very negative and all, it's actually a great drawing and it's nice to find a fellow Digimon fan. ♪

No, you are absolutely right - the light source is suppose to be in front of him, just to the left. :P
And yeah, it does contrast a lot which has been a sticking point! Next time I want to add in more dynamic backgrounds. Thank you for the feedback! :)

No problem, Backgrounds are hard to do, but I am sure you will do just fine. ♪

Nice. I love the texture. I still don't know how you don't get more attention.

Thanks, means a lot.
It might be because I take so long to upload new stuff, and also because I don't network much around DA's community.

No problem.

Yeah, maybe. Do you have anymore digimon drawings in the works?

Yup! GranKuwagamon, who's about half way there.
After that I'd like to work on Agumon and his evolutions. :)

Sweet. GranKuwagamon's pretty awesome. It would be cool to see Agumon and his evos too, with how good you are at texturing.
