Tag-Team Event

Digimon belongs to Bandai.
Joshua and Tirimon belong to :iconrueme:
Valleri belongs to :iconsaawaa:
Chris and Zerumon belong to :iconbear-0:
Cade belongs to me.
Song used is さあ、走りだそう! (Saa, Hashiridasou!) from the album デジモンアドベンチャー 02 歌と音楽集 Ver.2 (Digimon Adventure 02 Song and Music Collection Ver.2). Mixed by me.

EDIT 2: FINALLY FIXED THE MUSIC SYNC. IT'S FNALLY IN TIME PROPERLY NOW. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH

Everyone up there, I'm sorry if I didn't do justice to your characters =w=;; I tried to be accurate in all details and keep them IC in whatever they do, but if I failed, have my apologies and some chocolate. *feeds*

EDIT: SOME OF YOU MIGHT BE SEEING IT TOTALLY OFF-SYNC TO THE MUSIC. I'M SORRY, TRYING TO FIX IT NOW. *SOBS*

-----------------

IT IS FINISHED. FINIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIISHEEEEEEEEDDDDDD.

*flips table*

I now hate Flash. And photoshop. And big file sizes. And the piece of music I used. And stupid insane details on Joshua and Cade and Valleri. And stupid timing. And I need sleep. And I will never, EVER do this again. And I hate all the stupid ugly error-y stuff in there but I'm not going back to fix it I'm just too tired.

.....And I get this warm and happy feeling when I look at my beautiful Digimon in this. owo


BEWARE LONG AND LENGTHY DESCRIPTION

I first decided to do this as a challenge to myself, to touch the Flash that I haven't touched since my secondary school days under the tutelage of Mr Lee.

When I first began storyboarding and planning, it seemed really fun and exciting... and then I got down to actually drawing and the anatomy, angles and poses fair killed me. I'm not a very good artist when it comes to either of those three, so even the sketches took me really really long to get right. Still, I'm proud to see that I managed to get quite a variety of positions and angles in this compared to my usual happy 3/4 front comfort zone view.

Digimon has always been one of my all time favourite fandoms (yes, I love ALL THE SEASONS, EACH AND EVERY ONE). That, and the fact that I've always been ambitious, meant that I didn't want to submit anything crappy. Hence the drawing, redrawing, fussing, drawing, erasing, redrawing... Much thanks to my awesome brother :iconburstjoe: for helping me with some anatomy and foreshortening advice when it came to Monodramon.

Most of the focus is on the Digimon, because after all, in a battle, the Digimon does all the work. I've always loved how Digimon are sentient creatures who grow and learn, even though they are data, so I wanted to showcase them fighting. Although some put the leaders (and their Digimon) as 'standby in case of trouble', I thought that since it was a 'tag-team', they should involved in the battle as well; either as support, or as the attacker for a support-based partner.

Then there was the fact that some people were choosing winning/losing sides. I'd feel guilty if I defeated my opponent, because it'd somehow feel like I was elevanting myself up. But I didn't want to lose, either. *likeswinningSHOT* So I made it end in a very loose, 'epic' sort of way, with no final end. And frankly, in a sparring match between members on the same side, that's pretty much what it is. Endless, because they are ever improving on their own and with each other.

Lineart is always a pain. Took me days. Seriously. It did. Colouring, too, but I hope I'm getting better at it. And halfway through you guys can probably see where I started to go I DON'T CARE ANYMORE SOB. XD;;;

I HATE FLASH. I'M NOT GOING TO RANT ABOUT IT TOO MUCH BUT I HATE FLASH.

And finally, the credits to everyone involved:

Much thanks to :iconbabo-sparkle: for encouraging me all the while as we talk about our similarities and silly acts and YAY TALES.

Much thanks to :iconburstjoe: for advice in anatomy and foreshortening.

Much thanks to :iconrueme: for making this lovely group, and prompting me to start this insane project.

Much thanks to :iconbear-0: and :iconsaawaa: and :iconrueme: for putting up with all my my question-after-question-after-question notes on your OCs.

Much thanks to you for taking the time to watch this.



*collapses*

Project began on the 26th/27th of August.
Project completed on 23rd September midnight.



NOTE: Please ignore how the height of people, size of Digimon and length of tails are ever changing. Also ignore the inconsistent backgrounds, which tend to be very lazy looking.

------------------------

THIS IS NOT FULLY COMPLETE GIMME 20 MORE MINUTES DDDDD:

So apparently Dai is stupid and time zones make no sense to her. And the event ends tomorrow. oTL

Excuse me while I smash my head against a wall.

It's not exactly a comic, given how nothing goes in sequence and no actual story whatsoever... XD; But thank you! And I'm glad someone actually watched the Japanese Digimon recognised and loved the music!

No probs, awesome art and tremendous effort deserves praise :] And of course I recognise the music (the dub music DID NOT do justice to Digimon =_=;; )

Daidairo Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
YES. YES. The original music of Digimon was just awesome, both the songs and the BGMs! I don't think I know how to appreciate the dub music. >_>;;

Might I ask, do you have any favourites? Personally, I loved all of Wada Kouji's opening themes and My Tomorrow from Tamers : D
Reply
:icondaidairo:
Daidairo Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
I don't think I can pick favourites, I tend to really love everything... well, about a third from the huge playlist?

I enjoy everything by Wada Kouji, nearly everything by AiM, and Kazama Yuuto's pieces (Yamato) are also lovely. The evolution (and card slash) themes also make my ears very happy, and some of the anniversary/Christmas songs are gorgeous. Although not Masterpieces of Music, many of the other character image songs are wonderful, or at least highly amusing (Guilmon March, Agumon Ondo)... Never Give Up in Xros Wars and the various battle themes there are great, too!

.... I can see I'm not very good at answering your question. =w=;;

:iconmeigumi:
Meigumi Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2011  Student General Artist
Wow! That's a huge playlist >.<
And nono, you've answered my questions well, thanks xDD!! AiM isn't too bad (I find her voice too high pitched for my tastes, however, at least she can sing well...and like you mentioned, some of the Best Partner CDs were not exactly "masterpieces" LOL!!). Ooh, I like the Bokura wa Dejitaru theme (very nice) too!

I'm a total Digimon nerd, so I collected pretty much every album that I could get my hands on XD;; I'm still missing some of the Frontier, Savers and Xros Wars stuff, though.

I don't seem to remember a 'Bokura wa Dejitaru' theme... Do you mean that one which played at the end of 02? 'Bokura no Dejitaru Waarudo'? If so, I love that too *w*
