I've got a little challenge for you.
If you've ever played some monster collecting/raising/battling game such as Digimon or Pokemon, then I can almost bet that you've imagined yourself alongside your favorite/most formidable partner in them.
As you see with me, my most prominent monster games/shows happen to be Digimon and Pokemon, and so drew this to reinforce that.
As a Pokemon trainer, my favorite Pokemon is Quilava, so I drew and dressed myself up in appropriate Trainer apparel with my Quilava.
As a Digimon Tamer, my favorite Digimon happens to be Mihiramon, one of the 12 Devas. (and Leormon really evolves into Lynxmon, no, I didn't make it that way in my head, REALLY.) Therefore my Digimon partner is Leormon.
The monster you choose can be from anything of this like (Spectrobes, Pokemon, Digimon, Monster Rancher, etc.) but it can only be one monster as a partner--in any form.
And there's no limit as to how many versions of yourself you put in the picture. There is also no rules to say how professional it is. (Look at mine, seriously, it just was a sketch and only recently did I decide to attempt to spread a plague)
Enough of that.
Trainer-me has the expression of "My scarf is red from the blood of my enemies" and Leormon looks mighty handsome to me.
Quilava comes from Pokemon, and belongs to...Game Freak I believe.
Leormon comes from Digimon and belongs to Bandai, Toei Animation.
Look. A watermark.
