Digimon: Cornicmon by NicGiraffe Digimon: Cornicmon by NicGiraffe
This is actually my second attempt at drawing a dinosaur (I think the first one I ever drew was Elsa from "We're Back: A Dinosaur's Story", and that was ages ago). Cornicmon here is based on a parasaurolophus -- for some reason, I really like hadrosaurid (duck-billed) dinosaurs. Her name is derived from the Latin word for horn, corniculum.

I used references for her face, since I was having trouble making it look quite right, but I’m not sure if her anatomy is correct or not, so constructive criticism is welcome. I don't have any concrete ideas for her stats yet (BTW, I'm not above taking suggestions for them), though I do want her attacks to be based around sound and music, since it's been theorized that parasaurolophus may have used their head crests to produce noise. Poor thing doesn’t have a concrete color scheme yet either. I intend to write a Digimon 02 sequel, and Cornicmon is Mantarou Inoue's partner in the story.

Hmm, not bad. Although, I don't see anything about her that makes her a Digimon. She looks like a Dinosaur you'd see in the Land Before Time. Don't get me wrong, this is a very nice drawing and I really love Dinosaurs, but what makes her a Digimon aside the fact that she can talk? Like does she have markings on her body, does she have certain attacks, does she have digivolutions? What?

As a matter of fact, she's a Rookie right? Does she have a Champion form?

Thanks! Concerning the constructive criticism, you're right. I was looking at this sketch a while ago and thinking the same thing. She actually has green, yellow, and blue markings now, but this was posted before I had finalized her coloration. I need to draw Cornicmon's updated design (and since I’m slowly getting back into drawing now, I’ll try to take a crack at it sometime). She finally has actual attacks now as well (sonic hammer and cretaceous club).

Yeah, she's a Rookie. I have a couple of vague ideas for her Champion and other higher forms, but I’m wondering if they're either too silly/or not unique enough to use. Out of all my fanmade digimon, coming up with good digivolutions for her has been the toughest.

No love for Canichemon, lol? XD

Hmmm, I'm interested. Would you mind telling me what you have in mind for her Champion form?

Sure. One idea was a taller anthro version of Cornicmon's rookie form. Basically, she would be dressed like a woman from one of those 80s' exercise videos (headband, leg warmers, etc.), and have a Walkman that she could use for assorted sound-based attacks. I picture her aiming it at some enemy and blasting them with sonic wave that knocks them off their feet. over. My other idea was similar, except that she would have a guitar instead and be more like a blues musician. Her attacks would tie into the guitar.

But like I said, I'm pretty iffy on those ideas.

Not yet. I actually haven't started thinking about one for her yet. I'd like to call her something a little more unique then "Dancermon" or whatever, lol.

Your welcome. If there was a sequel to 'We're Back' this would be a nice addition to then cast.

Great steach she looks like an exllcent character, as for one of her attacks how about a sound wave based attack. By the way if you interested Asctoa has done another one of my OC's Yogi Jr who basically the son of Yogi Sr and Cindy.

Thanks! A soundwave roar or something like that does sound good for one of her higher forms. I also like the idea of one of her forms gaining a musical instrument that she can use as a weapon.

And cool, I'll be sure to check that pic out.
