Time for a new MonMon Memo! MonMon Memo 57 shows off early rough illustrations of the new Digimon characters from the Pendulum Z2 V-Pets.
The text below uses the machine translation from the official site due to lack of time. We will see about swapping it out when/if there is time for a proper translation.
Have you made a reservation for "Digimon
ZII with the addition of three new forces! I hope you can check it out.
This is a Monmon Memo, but in fact ... valuable materials of the new characters of ZII ... I got an early rough illustration!
The general flow until the illustration is completed is
[(1) Concept sketch → (2) Each designer creates a rough sketch based on it → (3) Check total finish]
It will be. (Although it's pretty rough)
By the way, the concept sketch about Pendulum Z was created by Mr. K of PLEX (who often cooperated in interviews of Vol.55 etc.), and from there it seems that each designer created a character based on the image and settings. !!
The materials introduced this time are (1) and (2).
I'm excited about the initial design and the information drawn in the corner, but how about everyone ...?
I received some supplementary comments from Mr. K, so I would like to introduce them together with the rough illustrations!
■ Concept sketch
■ Rough illustration
Pomemon (upper left) / Parasaumon (upper right) / Tropiamon (lower left) / Entmon (lower right)
You said that "WIND GUARDIANS" was reinforced mainly with plants.
It seems that the design was quite close to completion at the initial stage.
Is the tongue of Tropiamon like a petal? I also feel particular about the design of the invisible part ...!
Mr. K: Pommon was a bird with a beak, but in consideration of its derivation to the dinosaur system, I asked him to change it to a dinosaur-like mouth like an urvogel.
I see ... Fine adjustments have been made to the evolution destination so that it doesn't feel strange.
(I personally like the small illustrations of Pommemon).
■ Concept sketch
■ Rough illustration
Junkmon (upper left) / Machmon (upper right) / Riberimon (lower)
It can be seen that Junkmon examined the balance of the elements as in the interview with Vol.55.
The four legs of Rebellimon at the time of the concept are atrocious, and this has an impact. Digimon, which are often mechanized, such as the explanation of the mechanism by which rough missiles are launched, are also very attractive!
Mr. K: When Machmon told me with a nuance that "you don't have to be conscious of carrying someone," the design was finished with a mess that you wouldn't want to carry. Rather, the character came out with that, so it became GO as it was.
The character of Machmon was established by the rough illustration ...!
I feel it very much in the aircraft with increased murderous intentions.
■ Concept sketch
■ Parkimon (upper left) / Mimicmon (upper right) / Manticoremon (lower)
The idea of Parkimon is quite different from now ...! Digimon that protects the ruins, it is also designed to feel a solemn atmosphere.
It seems that the name of Mimicmon was Liberimon (provisional) by default. In addition to the barrel image that was the interview, there was also an executioner image.
I feel the angelic element of Manticore Mon, but the ferocious demon beast design seems to express the contradiction of "Vi BUSTERS but virus species" ...!
Mr. K: The hippopotamus and giraffe plan of Parkimon were very good, so I hope there will be a day when we can characterize them as Digimon
I chose Mimicmon because it is easier to convey the image than the name Liberimon and it matches the design. Since the name itself was Gataka' discarded that Riberimon, metal suit the character image Ogremon was adopted for those who had been tentatively called.
It's a character whose name matches well with the motif of "mimic", which was unlikely until now ... I feel that the niceness of the name is also one of the important elements of the character!
I told you a lot about the story behind the ZII characters from the initial design, but how was it ...! I hope you can discover their new charm!
Digimon Pendulum ZII" with new characters!
We are steadily making preparations so that everyone can enjoy it.
We hope that you will pick it up Digimon
See you again in the next update! See you!
