What if any of your pocket sized electronics like cell phones were customized characters? HANDYMONSTERS is just that.

The project began on Pixiv where it grew into a huge hit. Now a group has been established here on DA for internationalization.


Introduction | Submission rules


:iconcute-art-club: cute-art-club Happy, Kawaii, Cute, Moe! :iconfurry-pikis: Furry-Pikis Release your inner FURRY!! :iconkawaii-creatures: Kawaii-Creatures The Kawaiiest Critters Around~ :iconcutecritters: CuteCritters quality cute animal art
Actually I forgot to post here on June the 9th, but apparently from the words of inopoke, we are now allowed to submit entires of HanMon based on tablets. This includes any all-in-one tablet devices without a built-in keyboard, as well as the screen being onboard the device itself (i.e. does not need an external monitor for display). Possible candidates include, but not limited to, iPad series, Surface series, and all Android tablets.

I'm a proud owner of a MichaelSoft Surface Pro I, named Eigengrau. I know the new Surface Pro III is out already in the US and A, but I have no plans on replacing Eigengrau.

That's all folks! I'll be seeing you all in year 2015!

I wonder how far this fun, unique and adorable project go? Hmm...

I wonder, do you ever perhaps spread the words in the Groups, Chatrooms & Events subforum? That could be a good place to gain more people who might be interested in this, although I concern dA's base though, that subforum being mostly people seeking for roleplay groups and dA people itself being ugh, source of exacerbating stupidity of certain fandoms, lust, and so on.

As of me... I'm saving for a 3DS, to get to join them too one day. This is a good way to make friends, but I lack....

No. I will definitely NOT promote it anywhere on DA. People on DA lack the proper etiquette to host a group like this.

If you go to :iconinopoke:'s profile, you'll see that over 90% of people commenting are asking for requests. I just sent her a note on Pixiv telling her this (she doesn't understand English), she replied that she was surprised that DA is filled with people who ask requests but draw nothing themselves. By that I mean not even creating their own characters and then requesting others to draw them, but requesting a shi'iteload of Sonichu (Sonic + Pikachu) recolors that they traced off Google Images.

In case you think this is some :icontealdeerplz: material, I'm just trying to say that DA people lack creativity in general. That's why building my own branch of HandyMonsters here was unwise to begin with. That doesn't mean I'm going to abandon this group though. Even if I'm the last one standing, I'll stay here until... well at least my subscription runs out. ...which will not happen.

Alas, you got a point. This way there won't be anyone who knows this wonderful project, but dA is indeed ugh... just as accurate as that, or worse. I don't want to see stains of dApeople's idiocy impurely tainting over this project. Idk how to help further. Only if there are decent dA artists who knows and joins too.

I honestly never understand those who don't draw but has OCs and make requests.
MightyEaglet Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I made this group into a closed group, which means you may only enter if invited, or I permit your request to join. This will prevent a lot of trouble while I futilely try to convince people that this is not a roleplay or fan group.

In other words...

What are Handymonsters?
MightyEaglet Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
You basically create animal characters based upon your portable electronic devices, such as cellphones, gaming consoles, etc...

I'm starting to get really into HanMons, but I'm confused on one thing. When a user creates their own HM, does it become a "official" HM or is it just fan art?
MightyEaglet Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
If you create your own one, then it's official. Well, technically there are no real boundaries between official or fan art. But based on my own definitions, fan art only applies when you draw someone else's creation.

I can attempt to make my own handymonster, but I'm not entirely sure if it's going to look that good. I'm worried that nobody will like it.
