Art time!

Image Thumbnail (custom)

With the Digimon X3 up to pre-order, we're getting better resolution artwork for various Digimon, plus short profiles for new ones!

I've generally been posting these once a week, or when some other relevant news shows up, but since there was a bigger batch of new ones earlier in the week, we only have the ones that showed up here at the end of the week, but there are some good ones here. All use pre-existing profile details, so just artwork today...


First up is Jazardmon (art above), the adult form of Jazamon, the Digimon who showed up during Links endgame content. This is the first time we've seen his profile artwork.



Next up....

Image Thumbnail (custom)

Paledramon! The adult form of Bulcomon is from the Chinese mobile game Digimon Encounters. Like Jazardmon, this is the first time we've seen his profile artwork.



Last up is larger art for one of the better known X-Antibody Digimon.

Image Thumbnail (custom)

Alphamon: Ouryuken! We've gotten him larger in art books before, but getting it relatively clean from Bandai is nice.



More to come! (But not for long, pre-orders for the X3 close in under 2 weeks, and they're gone thru 'almost' the full lineup so far!)


Thanks to onkei for confirming some of the profile details.

Paledramon's artwork sure is impressive. But c'mon bandages? It will be shattered cuz of all freezing ice. But it's good to see digimon traditional clothing in tatters.

Jazardmon felt like it's alien dragon jet. Look like it's Nakano drew this.

Since when has Digimon ever applied any logic in clothing? Don't quote me on that.

Jazardmon looks dope! I'm excited we'll be seeing the unrevealed Digimon on Monday after months of speculation 😁

Paledramon's art is really nice, and Jazardmon's helped me with my biggest gripe with it: from the 3D models, it looked like it and Jazamon had the same heads, save for some blue. In this artwork the differences are clear and make me appreciate the overall design better.

Paledramon looks a lot better in the 2D art, whilst I still don't really like Jazardmon all that much. But yeah, the 3D models of these mobile Digimon are really bad, hopefully they are better should they get put into console games, but probably not.

Surprised Jazamon's line actually got liked because of this artwork. I guess Bandai should put the artwork on top priority before 3D models.

I think Bulcomon could be perfect addition to Jazamon & Vobomon for trio.

Vobomon = Nature force, Volcanic Ash/Lava/Volcano/Earth
Bulcomon = Nature force, Snow/Blizzard/Glacier
Jazamon = Opposite of Nature, Man-made/Artificial/Steel/Sky

Something like that. But shame Bulcomon's Ultimate form isn't Dramon and... got Humanoid body.

Jazamon's evolutions look a lot better if you view them with a Megadramon style build.
That being wings, arms and a snake-like body with no legs.

I thought they were doing a land/sea/earth trio but they quit at two. Might be another Dracomon situation where there's art for sea volvomon or whatever in the archives that's unused.

I think we really do have that trio although Groundramon may not be counted but Seadramon and Airdramon. The problem thing is, Betamon lacked "Dra" and Airdramon have no evo line. Dracomon got "Earth" and "Sky/Heaven" evo but no "Sea".

So I don't think they plan about trio element digimon evo lines.

The unused concept for the "trio" was Earthdramon rather than Groundramon. Technically different.

Yeah. I wish they release another digimon anniversary artbook about the unused concept arts of certain Digimon ones including Tower turtle and TV board digimon ones. Because Technodramon is only one had my strongest interest.

"Heaven and Earth" or Tiāndì is a completely different concept than "Land, Air, and Sea." It's a Chinese concept where Earth and Heaven are a complementary pair, like Yin and Yang. There's no third "sea" counterpart. Dracomon and Vorvomon+Jazamon are based on this concept. Combined, Heaven and Earth form the whole universe, which is what Dracomon's conceptual third "Almighty" line represented.

Jazardmon is one of the many Digimon that clicks a lot more once I see the official art. Sometimes the 3D models just don't communicate the same impression!

In that case, I dread to imagine the fans' reactions over seeing certain X-Antibody Digimon they hate being rendered in 3D.

X Antibody 3D models made it easier to see at every angle to draw at.

X Antibody haters? Honestly I truly don't understand them. It's only mecha armor. Not mecha robots. And there is only Mechanorimon yet it didn't get X treatment.
Those X forms are pretty much living as most normal ones do. And it clearly separates Digimon from Pokemon for sure, making it "mature". Like Beast Wars toy's cards got really ugly savage arts (I love it!). Don't you agree?

It's different? I see. Noted. Thx.

I think Dracomon's "Golden" evo line will not see the light ever for all eternity since Examon was moved over there as a jogress from its original slot, non-Jogress "Ultimate" level.

I see vovomon line as bringing things to extension and jazamon line bringing life to planet, atleast that is what I can make out of the profiles so far.

Jazardmon looks pretty cool, I never got a chance to try Linkz before it shutdown.

I'm pretty sure it was confirmed that greymon is the "earth" part of the trio. The earthdramon you talk about is a winning entry from a digimon illustration constest.
