Commission: MissingNO. by ShadeofShinon Commission: MissingNO. by ShadeofShinon
[On Tumblr]

A digital sketch commission for :icontrueerror: of my interpretation of the glitch Pokemon MissingNO.

I was really thrilled to get this commission because MissinNO. is such a cool concept and there is so much you could do with the design.

My main idea was to try to combine different forms and to make it look like there would be several Pokemon merged into one and you don't know where one ends and the other begins.

I looked up some glitches and I stumbled upon a glitch called Charizard M that is basically a really freaky programming anomaly and pretty much the end of the road. It transforms your Pokemon into more Charizard M and there is no way to get rid of it. venturebeat.com/2011/12/07/the…

So I decided I'd include Charizard in the design, in addition to Kabutops, Aerodactyl and some gassy element as a reference to the ghost - all three being forms of MissingNO. I aimed to fit Charizard in by making it skeletal as well and make it seem like the most prominent part of the design as a reference to it taking over data. I also wanted to make the design in a similar shape as the best known MissingNO form, aka the tetris block, so there is some reference there as well.

I personally really like how this one turned out. I even got to experiment on some glitch effects which was really cool. Gotta love pieces that really teach you something! This time it was effects and also a certain chaos in contrast to my usually clean-ish designs.

I hope you like it!

Great job!

Beneath the seas, besides the flame
Off the coast, where lost beast came
To bring the world misery and shame
A piece of the world is missing

The path you should have never crossed
The Beast exacts a heavy cost
The Number of the beast is lost
You'll know it by its hissing

The Bones from hell you cannot tame
Devour your life and all your fame
That is the price to play its game
And all while you're reminiscing

Definitely an unsettling design and perhaps wouldn't like to run into it in game, but would be wickedly cool!

This gets even better if you look up its stats. Missigno is 10 ft tall and 3507 lbs of glitched skeletons. Sweet dreams. :)

So about three meters. Sweet! I love it even more now! For once a Pokemon that's somewhat proper in size.

Hooooolyyyyy shit.  I have never seen a Missingno. design anywhere near as amazing as this one.  The glitch effects look great, I especially like the clawed hand on the bottom left.  This thing is scary as fuck and I want one.  Throw that into battle and watch your opponents piss themselves in terror.

Now all it needs is a simple, out-of-place question mark placeholder. Eh, that probably just starts appearing randomly on walls and other surfaces while this thing is around. People look around, rub their eye and think they're seeing things with all these symbols everywhere, and them BAM MissingNO. shows up.

Very cool. You really get a sense of chaos looking at this thing. Like, this is just a still frame of what it looks like now, it could be entirely reconfigured in two seconds. You have to wonder what goes through Red's mind when he encounters one of these glitchy monstrosities.
