Arctic Flare by ShadeofShinon Arctic Flare by ShadeofShinon
I've been fiddling with the idea of drawing something completely out of my usual repertoire for quite some time. A watcher once said it'd be cool to see a Garurumon drawn by me and ever since I've had the urge to do so. 

So here you have it! Garurumon in my style! I'm not a fan of Digimon but I liked the series as a kid (until the reality punched my face and I realized how terrible the Finnish dub is) and there are a lot of cool designs.

Pokemon is still my thing but this was very fun and refreshing.

I hope you like it!

Sweet revamp here. This thing kind of reminds me of the Cheshire Cat. What with the purple, striped body, the yellow eyes, the grin with visible teeth (however slight). Also, the spiralling tail and crimson nails give it that kind of wacky edge. Also, the lack of a horizon kind of gives it the sense of having come out of nowhere. The lack of tracks supports this. What a strange beast. Lovely background as well. I love the look of the snow on the bushes as well as those crooked, frosty branches. Quite the chilling scene.

Thank you!
I can see the Chesire Cat resemblance not that you mention it.
Also, I really love wintery scenes. It makes me glad to hear you like the background. :>

I saw the curly tail and purple and I immediately new it was Garurumon. I love digimon, the English dub is very funny, currently re-watched the seasons. I like what you did the ice breaths/lights to show Garurmon's icy attribute.

Your artsyle is the best to describe garurumon. He, I believe, is like an ice digimon and the way you drew his fur made it look warm yet cool (if that made any sense XD) but yes I love digimon as a kid! I always seen digimon as the better show and pokemon as the better game :P

Thank you! It actually does make sense because that is very close to how I'd describe Garurumon. :>

Garurumon! Awesome. He looks so amazing like this! Honestly I don't blame you for not liking the series very much, I only liked the first two myself. Everything after the second series wasn't all that great in my opinion.

Yeah, I've seen a few episodes here and there after the first two seasons but they didn't seem that great.

Don't worry, the most recent one i saw in passing makes them seem desperate. All the evolutions seem to be them just playing mix and match

I think I probably liked it because it was one of the few that looked like an actual animal, and the fact that I've always loved big cats and dogs :)
And, as you said, it's design is gorgeous. You really did it justice :aww:

There are actually surprisingly few Digimon drawn like this. I'd like to draw more of them in my style. Maybe some day I will.
And good to hear you think so!
