Fan-Made Digimon

I was once a hard-core fan of Digimon, and I wanted to make my own story called "Digimon Rebirth". I remember the plot being something about Digimon fans growing up, which meant that the digital world was crumbling and needed to be rebooted. It sounded much cooler to me back then as opposed to now. Maybe I still have the file where I wrote the first chapter of the story. I doubt it, though.

This was the main Digimon character's forms. Sadly, I'm not sure what the names of her various forms were. She would default to the form that I drew second from the right. If I remember correctly, I came up with a lame name like Yellowmon for it because it was a yellow Digimon. Then again, I'm not entirely sure.

I think I drew this in '01 or '02. I didn't see a date on the picture, so I couldn't tell.

Expressions Are Fun

This is an expression memo for some of Toki's scenes throughout Eternal Rain's main arc.

Drawn in about 2007 in the empty spaces of my math notebook.

Initial Design: Meh-Eh-Au

It's criminal how little fan art I have of my "Rebels" characters recently, considering I used to draw those guys all the time back in high school.

Actually, I think this one even predates that. I remember drawing it during spring break one year, so I'm guessing it was sometime in '00. Yep, I came up with the idea for "Rebels" in eighth grade. My, how time flies.

Side note: Meh-Eh-Au's hair/mane looks SO different. Same with those eyebrows.

Eternal Rain Debut

My first "Eternal Rain" art.

This was drawn in about 2005. It was the picture I submitted to the KG comics club, along with the story synopsis, when I joined.

Semi-Realism, Anyone?

An early attempt at semi-realism. I actually have several versions of this picture, but this is my favorite one.

I drew this in middle school -- it's dated for 2003.
