For the longest time I had one avatar: a Terriermon with byakugan, a spiked collar and a tattoo. ZiPo came up with it for me after I told him how much I liked Terriermon from Digimon Tamers. But in 2016 I came up with a pokesona, Glaceon, an OC I could call my own. This is my attempt to show they are the one and same - me. I liked duality images kinda like this one from Poor Yorick, so I wanted something like that. ZiPo proposed the idea of a broken mirror and a butter knife which I liked. The mirror also means that the image is flipped, so the tattoo on Terriermon’s head is on the wrong side and reversed. Anyway, the result looks cool as fuck.
Just a silly idea I had. Momentai kinda sounds like “мой минтай” (my pollock). So here it is.
A commission I asked for half a year ago. I saw giant ears of a gigantamaxed Cinderace and thought of Terriermon, so I asked ZiPo to draw Terriermon who painted himself to look like Cinderace. He instead made Terriermon only paint the yellow parts, the rest of the Cinderace’s design is made up by a skarf and a pair of socks, which is fine by me. The version with no paint blotches was a bonus. The artwork also has two easter eggs I somehow managed to notice right after waking up.
I commissioned Nix to draw me a Terriermon the way models pose in shampoo commercials. I had that idea every time I was thinking about that image ZiPo drew as my website logo and that I vectorized in order to engrave it on a thermos (I think it actually fits a cup more since it’s more wide than it is tall). She thought I was talking about my character, and I didn’t object, but I did ask her to make a version with a regular Terriermon. Apparently, she considered it the primary version, because it’s the one she posted everywhere and it has the highest resolution. Although it’s a simple colored sketch, so not much detail is lost in other version.
Here’s that image I never posted. Wow, it’s been more than two years since ZiPo has drawn it. I never liked the image because colors seemed too dirty for me. I mean, there’s so much brown, and it looks like Terriermon is covered in dirt. Actually, now that I look at it again, it’s not bad at all. The detail is pretty high, the anatomy is fine. Maybe eyes look kinda insect-like. I’m still not a fan of the color scheme, but I actually like this art now.
ZiPo got kinda fed up that I wasn’t using Terriermons he made for me (except that old 150x150 image from 2009), especially the one he was kinda proud but I wasn’t happy with and never even posted, so when we got together one time and got drunk he decided to remake that Terriermon. And this time the result was pretty good. It’s my current avatar for Xbox Live.
Back in April my friends and I had an idea for a custom cup design for our tea parties. My friends helped me brainstorm the design idea, and I then commissioned Nix to draw my characters drinking tea.
This is a (sort of) ponified version of my avatar drawn by ZiPo. Well, its sketch looked more badass, while the finished version before edits looked more kawaii (and a bit wrong). But I’m more or less satisfied how it turned out in the end. Didn’t expect the pony to be so slender, though. I need to lose a few kilos to match him. Also, a horn wasn’t supposed to be this big, but ZiPo tends to like it when a pony has a big and thick… horn.
I guess everyone who knows me online are used to see my avatar, because I’ve been using it since at least 2009, probably even earlier. It was made for me by my friend ZiPo, I like it a lot and don’t plan to change it any time soon. In case you’re clueless, that’s an avatar I’m talking about:
Last night I received an e-mail from DZAladan. Well, actually at first he wrote me on Steam that he couldn’t send it to my server for some reason (I blame M$’s routing), so I gave him another address. His e-mail contained the following:
