Another stack of weekend stuff!



After Digimon Adventure: episode 24 aired, Digimon Web revealed the profile art for DoneDevimon, and it looks really good. The attached message:
Thanks for watching episode 24, The Final Stage, DoneDevimon!
From beginning to end it was filled with rage... amazing... 😳
We reveal the official illustration of DoneDevimon who tormented Taichi & co.😈
Look forward to the Digimon Encyclopedia tomorrow!
Next is episode 25, Dive to the Next Ocean , what will happen?🌊


And then we have new art from Kenji Watanabe!



This time we get a representation of the battle from the new episode! Watanabe does a number of interesting things here give interesting lighting, perspective, and the appearance of speed. His attached message:
It had a lot today! DoneDevimon! The design motif is based on the image of something like Spawn or Venom. I was asked to reduce the amount of lines for Digimon, so it went in a fairly simple direction.

Red-eyed Taichi along with images of Mugen and WarGrey, and Patamon!
Watanabe's love of American comics is well documented, so the familiar visual was one people picked up on before. Also interesting is that he was asked specifically to make the design basically specific as an evolution to Devimon rather than something that might be more varied in use.




For card game fans, we got a really nice preview of DoneDevimon from the upcoming Booster Set 4. That can be found here.




And last up this time, some more high resolution pieces of Digimon profile art!


This time we get 1 Digimon from each of the upcoming Pendulum Z2 V-Pets: Hawmon (Wind Guardians), Locomon (Metal Empire), and Shoutmon X3 (Virus Busters.)




Each of them were shown off after a quiz (Hawkmon, Locomon, Shoutmon X3) where they showed sprites from the Z2 and had people guess who they were showing (out of 4 choices.)

The choices for each quiz were:
Wind Guardians- Falcomon, Pomumon, Hawkmon, Jazamon
Metal Empire- LoaderLiomon, Locomon, Machmon, Gundramon
Virus Busters- Omegamon, Shoutmon X3, Shoutmon X5, RiseGreymon


It was noted Hawmon had many correct answers, and that Shoutmon X3 was a difficult quiz, as the majority of people guessed RiseGreymon.



They put up a sheet of all 4 choices from Virus Busters to show the differences:
Omegamon, top left
Shoutmon X3, top right
Shoutmon X5, bottom left
RiseGreymon, bottom right




Fun selection of stuff this week, and all art.

I couldn't help but notice DoneDevimon bears an uncanny resemblance to final-form Dark Carnage from the Absolute Carnage storyline, so maybe Watanabe drew some inspiration from that too.

...Yeah. That's a Venom-like. Now he has 2 most common/main/"canon" Megas. 5 if you count Myotismon as an ultimate. ...And whatever you might count NeoVamdemon as. Anyway, That's a crazy idea. ...So is it Done or Dan? Is this a read it this way type issue? We always get those.

Inspiration from Venom and even Spawn?! Alright DoneDevimon is now epic 5x times!

I was so sure DoneDevimon's official art will have him standing menacingly but oh man dat that crawl pose made it look so amazing!

Damn how many times Kenji kept getting told to go easy on designing digimon?! X Antibody designing then now this DoneDevimon.
Was it for the sake of animating DoneDevimon or what?

Tomorrow we'll know how is his name written, I really like that the Profile Art is in a bestial pose, the moment when in the episode he walked like that made me laugh.

As some already pointed out DanDevimon is like VenomVamdemon in that is an mentally unstable evolution.
Let's see if someday we also get a Belial inspired similar evolution for the Devimon line.

Isn't Daemon the evolution with the intelligence already?

Yeah, but I meant a Devimon named one. Like Venom, Belial and Neo are from the Vamdemon species.
Demon could evolve in theory (or it possibly is only my headcanon) from any of the Perfect level demon/fallen angel besides Lucemon(maybe).

Devimon's proper Ultimate evolution doesn't need to have a 'Devimon' in its name just as Seraphimon doesn't have 'Angemon' in his name.

Wow, guessing between the Shoutmons and Omnimon would be a pain from pixelart. Especially since that looks more like WarGreymon to me.

Well, if they tried to turn Seraphimon into an -Angemon name, he couldn't call himself SerAngemon. He'd have to call himself SoyAngemon ;):ROFLMAO:

"I was asked to reduce the amount of lines for Digimon, so it went in a fairly simple direction."

I'm a little bit worried about this comment. I hope that rule isn't rigid or permanent.
I mean, yes, digimon have to go back to the simpler design rather than full of spikes, sharpy shining unmatched crystals like some of X digimon. But by simple it doesn't mean to be flat and not have many colors and accessories like DoneDevimon.
I love DoneDevimon's design but I just don't expect for other new digimon's designs later will be as simple as his design.

I'm not a Japanese speaker so anyone may translate that line if I understand it wrongly.

It's okay I'm sure he can go as bat shit crazy with the design as he wants if DoneDevimon gets an X form.

I'm sure if he gets X form, he will be that much scarier in Ogremon X designing style. After all Ogremon X shares with that certain demon in design from Spawn comic. Much better DoneDevimon is Spawn/Venom inspired. Probably X form = Carnage?

I'm surprised Kenji is such fan of that Spawn and Venom. I wonder what comics he is fan of? I hope the next design will be based on more certain comics he read.

That or it's another mecha.

(Please please be another mecha, Imperialdramon is fucking awesome.)

He's practically there already since he not only resembles Venom or Spawn, but Dark Carnage. I could definitely see much more lines being added to accentuate that effect if he got an X-Antibody form.
