Hanmon: Rhapsody + Mobi by crayon-chewer Hanmon: Rhapsody + Mobi by crayon-chewer
"What if your cellphones, portable game consoles, iPod and other electronics in your pockets and bags can become cute little creatures, accompanying you side by side?"

Well that's what #ProjectHandyMonsters is all about!
(( or Handymon/HANMON as I like to call them! ))

As a fan of Pokemon/Digimon/creatures in general, this group fits me so perfectly! I can't wait until new Handymon show up! :D


--SAI + Wacom Intuos4 tablet--
I used this stock photo for the tape.


-----------------------

:bulletblue: Rhapsody, based on my blue iPod Nano. I think his design is more than obvious, but I wanted to keep the simplicity... ^^;

A really upbeat and cheerful creature, he loves keeping up with the latest trends! His main obsession is music, though he's very fond of art as well. He's constantly seeking out new and interesting things, but still loves the classics. He's very friendly and always considerate of others and even loves sharing... the perfect gentlemen! Whether he is on the move or just relaxing at home, he can easily find something to occupy himself with. He simply loves adventure and is very enthusuatic of just about anything! Rhapsody has a blue tongue, in which he's a little embarrassed about, but since he can't stop smiling, there's no way he can hide it anyways! Slightly clumsy, he occasionally slips up and falls (( in real life, I always drop the poor thing! )), but he gets right back up again! Nothing can keep this guy down... except for emotional songs and gravity!


:bulletblack: Mobi... as in "mobile phone." Bad pun is baaaaad. :XD: He's based on my current phone, the Verizon Motorola VU204.

He has a really quiet and solitary personality. He never gets calls and when he does, he often ignores them for unknown reasons... and then later sulks about it. He doesn't talk much (( because he's always on vibrate/silent, lol )) and doesn't like being outside of his comfort zone (( which is usually in my very small pockets! )), but is willing to do what he has to when the time calls for it. Mobi always feels a little inferior around his friends (( you would too if your friends were iPhones! )) but still enjoys the company of others. He is often too shy to socialize, so he appears very grumpy because of this! But deep down he's a very sweet and loyal little guy, even if he doesn't like to show it!

HOMG these are so frikkin adorable!! :love: Dang girl I seriously don't know how you manage to be so unconventionally creative, but somehow you always do! Both of these little guys are sooo sweet... at first I was looking at the smaller size before popping it out to full-view, and only then did I notice how Mobi is based on a grumpy-looking little bulldog, apparently! I so love that! :XD: Despite being a bit different in appearance, it's amazing the similarities your little mobile and my little mobile have in common personality-wise, haha! ;p

Of course Rhapsody is totally adorable too, and I love that strange but wonderful detail about him having a blue tongue lol! :XD: Very creative and very cute piece of work girlie, really!

I totally love doing things like this! I draw them all the time, just never do anything with them! Maybe I should upload some of this stuff... :XD: And yeah! My real phone actually looks so much like a grumpy bulldog... as strange as that seems, it's uncanny! I'll have to show you some day! :la: The bit about Rhapsody having a blue tongue was actually a mistake! I accidentally colored his tongue blue instead of the usual pink, but liked it so much that I kept it! Yay for unintentional mess-ups! :w00t:

Thanks so much again for all of these lovely comments! It always makes me smile to see my inbox so full of love! :glomp:

I was kinda expecting this long ago, but your design is much better than mine. My design for my old cellphone is like a wolf with propellers.

Haha, I kinda did start this long ago, but have been trying to think of a way to display it in a "cool" way. At least I finally got it! :XD:

Now I just need to figure out how to submit it to Pixiv. I had no idea that was a requirement, even though I've probably read the rules a million times... ^^;

Oh, the wolf with the windmills! I've seen Eco-chan. :3

hinawashi Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Submitting to PIXIV was never a requirement. Since the group here on DA is for people who are in DA only, but not in PIXIV. Otherwise this group wouldn't exist, because I'll just redirect all traffic to PIXIV.

Makes sense, non?

Hmmm, I must've gotten confused by ~Cosmeon's comment then! I was freaking out thinking I'd have to learn Japanese to navigate around that site. Well that's a relief! :XD:

I just wish the group got more traffic. ;w;

Don't worry. Building a community within a group is a lengthy process. Sometimes, you gotta outlast your own patience to expect good things to happen.
