It's been a while since I posted the Shadow Monsters designs. Here's a quick sketch before my exams.

Shadow monsters do not mindlessly wander the area they spawned from like regular time monsters. Instead they travel through multiple worlds distorting as much of time-space as possible. They're hard to find but their destructive path is traceable.

They don't like to stick in one place very long, but they do show territorial behaviour, coming back to a particular spot when they aren't doing their thing to sleep if they want to.

REWIND likes a specific flower field of purple four o’ clocks; RECORD in a crystal cave; RETRY inhabits a pond. (still have to think for the others)

PAUSE is particularly fond of a dead tree. So boring.

"A specific flower field of four o'clocks."  For some reason, I find that time reference incredibly amusing.

Making them fond of certain things almost makes them kind of cute, though.

I chose four o'clocks because I needed a purple flower that opened at night. REWIND is entertained by that characteristic. The time reference was the bonus. :P

Cute time monsters huh... that's a nice thought (then again, they morph into time sweeper lookalikes, it's a given). Besides their strong desire to wreak havoc, I like them having quirky traits.

Y'know, it makes me wonder about the old and new designs of the time monsters.  The old ones were "cutesy," but still weren't something you'd want to cuddle, somehow.  Some of them were pretty uncanny and they always managed to come off as so mindless, hostile, and in many cases, legitimately dangerous, so they added to the aesthetic without losing the feeling of being threatening.  BLiNX 2 really pulled off something different (and ironically, they were a lot less of a bother once they turned all demonic, maybe aside from the time dragon that I never want to bother).

Makes me realize that these shadow monsters are really quite abnormal for being so... conscious.
