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

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! :)
