This is Pinatamon. I actually created this Digimon while revisiting the game Digimon Rumble Arena 2, which I used to play when I had friends round. In that game, there are several pickups that can cause a variety of effects that can either power or depower your character. One of the possible effects is called “Pinata Party” where the digimon who collected the pickup will become a pinata. In this state, they cannot attack, and computer-controlled characters will automatically flock towards the pinata’d character in hopes of getting from free EXP while they’re helpless. So I thought it would cool to make a pinata Digimon inspired by this effect. Pinatamon is a pretty weak Digimon who can’t do much damage with physical attacks, and can’t start doing any real damage in battle until after being damaged itself.
I also discovered that when I design Digimon, I have a tendency to make them support-types rather than attacking-types. I dunno, I find supporting roles in RPGs fun to mess with, so maybe that’s why.Also included Pinatamon’s In-Training form. I couldn’t think of what its Fresh form would look like though, so I just left it. I’ll probably go back to it later.
Been a long time coming, but here she is at last.
This is Eidolomon, Wraithmon/Vapourmon’s ultimate form. Sorry it took so long to upload this. I actually had drawn this ages ago but was planning on waiting until I had finished her mega form so I could release them together. However, it’s probably gonna be a while before I release the Mega, just because the Mega form is gonna be verrrrrrry difficult.
At first, I wasn’t sure WHAT Vapourmon could evolve into and was kind of planning on just leaving the evolution alone for a while. However, one of my followers on tumblr actually messaged me not long after Wraithmon and Vapourmon were uploaded, and asked me if I was planning on finishing the evolution line. I actually plan to make complete evolution lines for all my Digimon, unless I say otherwise, but obviously it will take some time. However, having this person seem so interested in the line being completed actually gave me the inspiration to work on it.
So I thought “What could a ghost Digimon evolve into?” Bakemon evolves into Phantomon, who is a grim reaper, but I felt that wouldn’t work for Vapourmon. Then I thought, “Well, Vapourmon was created from a horror game, so maybe I should base her later forms on iconic horror monsters.” And then it clicked! The iconic Japanese ghost girl who you see in a lot J-horror, the one with the long hair covering the face and the long white robe, especially since I could make that white robe resemble the sheet she wears as Vapourmon.
So yeah, the design just kind of pieced itself together. I’m a little worried about what people may think about this design as I’ve heard some complaints about later Digimon stages being too humanoid (especially if those Digimon are feminine) and I actually agree with some of those complaints, but I think Eidolomon looks unique enough that people will like her….… hopefully xP
