"Spit Pistol" is basically the champion level version of "Cria Spit". Unfortunately, Criamon's lower leveled body couldn't handle the recoil and he's thrown back considerably after each use. Not wanting to risk a lose through a self-inflicted ring-out it was agreed between boy and alpaca that the new move should be avoided.

Unless, of course the right opportunity presented itself. . .

Art wise? Not all that confident in this piece. But I guess I should upload this as soon as I can in as complete a state as it can be.(which will hopefully leave some wiggle room for some last minute tweaks? idk) Inking the artwork traditionally saved a lot of time, and I'm hoping that the in-profile angle makes the actions easier to read. There was also an attempt to keep a consistent 'slant' or angle in terms of layout. I guess I like how the metaphorical pistol came out, and feel pretty satisfied with the characters. Particularly Elecmon as a whole, and Magnhild's "ugh" expression.

The amount of straight lines and angles, even the poses of the Digimon and how they're angled, not to forget the spit and pistol works wonders. I get a richochet feel off this piece. xD The wavy lines(wood) background is a good contrast too. Interesting stuff!

Thanks a lot for commenting on the design/layout aspect of my entry.(and the previous one too) It's pretty easy for me to take those elements for granted, so I appreciated it :)

If I were Elecmon's tamer, I'd probably be less like 'ugh' and more like 'NOOOOO!! MY DIGIMON IS DEAAAADDD!!! NOOOHOOHOOO WHYYYYYYY"

That said, this is still cool. I'm thankful for the absence in blood on this one. :3 The violence doesn't bother me (I think it's the key point of interest in your battle scenes, I dare even say), but as I think I've said before, the blood seems really out of place when it comes to Digimon. Nice work!

Thanks for commenting on my work.
I can go either way in terms of blood with Digimon. I think it just depends on the story. One of the scenes from Digimon that has always stuck with me was when an injured Ogremon was re-encountered and he had trickle of blood stream down his face. Blood is a good shorthand for injury both serious and minor, how real an audience feels an injury is could effect how empathetic they are to it. Seem to work best in stories where writers really want to push the idea that these creatures are more than their artificial parts and origins.

But on the other hand, the way 'digital' damage can be shown has good visual potential: Beautiful glowing lights, shattered data bits, the reveal of--not muscle or blood--but digital mesh or ones and zeros under the flesh. It all does an effective job of establishing Digimon as otherworldly or artificial.
Ah, woops, kind of rambled there... Thanks again for the comments.

Not at all, I found the rambling to be quite interesting.
You're quite right of course about blood as an indication of injury, I suppose you could just call it a personal preference to see evidence of the creature's digital roots when they are damaged. I would further argue that something can still look like an 'organic' (in the artistic sense of course) living thing even with that digital evidence. It certainly sounds like you know what you're talking about though, haha.

You're most welcome. :3

Haha, I love how the spit goes right through Elecmon! I can hear the sound effects in my head, so that makes this an effective piece!

It's nice to read that the move gave off a sense of impact and/or sound. :)
