Cadogre Upgrade!








Effective immediately, Blackmoon Corporation have done you the service of upgrading your cadogres to my new design. The ancient tech had to be thrown out, but these bots are really built to withstand anything you can throw at them now. The pets have also had a reboot to their system and should be functioning at a much higher level, you're welcome. Oh yes, and you can now get a vibrant cadogre, if you wish - although I'm personally fond of that shiny, powerful red.

Always had a soft spot for the cadogre. That cherry one is tempting..

Oh wow, these were never pets I really wanted to have, but I think the updated shading makes the look so much better. I chose one for Monorail because it's a futuristic species but I can't wait for the Spectrum to get updated now. Their claws could maybe be a little sharper but I still think it looks great. (:

I'm very confused. Why does the nuclear Cadogre still look exactly like the original?

Anyone else see it?

Huh, has the Arid one not been upgraded yet?

AlanaBanana

The shading alone is worth it, IMO.

Just curious -- how come folks with constructive criticisms aren't making a revamp feedback thread? Several pets have been modified post-release due to user request! If there are anatomy issues or if the attitude of the pet has been totally altered, artists seem pretty willing to consider tweaks... just not from offsite comments or news post replies.

Pollux

yeah, these are neat. but Calvin Blackmoon, what is up with you? you need an update way more than cadogres ever did.
5

Morse

Lovely shading and colors but yeah, they're very much lacking in sharpness and danger now.
4

Nebulous

Not a fan :/ The older one looked more fierce. Don't get me wrong, the art is lovely, I just feel like it's more... cutesy now and I don't quite dig it.

Speiro

That mallarchy tail though

BoaConstrictor

I've read all the comments now and can't understand the hype. Honestly, if you showed me the 2 pics, I'd say the old one was the updated one? More detail, livelier, shinier, everything but the claws waaayyy better (radar, pose, legs,...). The new one kind of looks like a child's scribble version of the original :-(
3

BoaConstrictor

Hm... They look stiffer, bulkier,... Got mine from the Adoption Center and not really wanted a roboter :-)
I'm glad mine has been a Nightmare for years - if only it didn't have those strangely huge claws...

Xero

Those new claws look way too rounded and cutesy compared to old ones. :/

ShinyPikachu

They're so pretty, I love them!
Great work! :3

Clown

Not a fan of this change. It's way more blocky and the loss of sharpness in some of the features (the claws in particular) take away from the character that the original had.

Celia

The art is definitely an upgrade. They feel less alive now, though. A bit stiff in terms of their stance, a bit positioned. Oh well, it's still nice that they've been updated to the more "full" art style.

twocents

I really like the cherry one. The dark red works with it.

Sielbee

I want to add that I do really like the art overall, and I do think it looks better than the old one overall. Honestly it wasn't until I started really looking at it and comparing it with the old one that I found things I don't like about it. So, yeah, nothing against the artist, and I don't hate it, it's just little things that bother me that I'll probably get used to.
1

Sielbee

@Books yeah I see what you're saying. Just adds to the "toy" look I was talking about.
0

Mouse

I'm not hugely fond of robots but I like the new design! I just think the orb on their chests and their eyes should have a bit of a glow to them to make them look more alive/on. They kind of look like they're powered down right now.

I never really had much of an opinion on these guys before, but WOW, this updated art really brings out the best in them. :o Kudos!

It's so rounded and ...non-sharp, the art is great but is just lost some of its essence...

Frieda

You know...I've never really been fond of this species...not because they are ugly or bad or metallic, or any of that. In fact, these revamps are amazing, kudos to the artists. Perhaps it's because Mr. Blackmoon had something to do with them, or perhaps it's because I've never been able to figure out how to pronounce the species name...Kay-dog'- er? Kay-Dodger? (heaven forbid!! ) Kuh-dough'-gur? Kud'-uh-gur? Kay-doo'-jer? How do you stand on the back porch and call one of these thingies to come in at night..."cadogercadogercadogercadoger!" See...it's sad that such a mighty-looking pet is saddled with a totally unpronounceable name that conjures up all sorts of silly images in my fertile little ADHD brain. I will stick with pherrets (pronounced "puh-hair'-uts") and my priggles, (pronounced "pruh-jel'-ies")....snicker

Quote By Books:
(basically, there's no inner light that a working radar screen should have, thus making the orb dull and muted)

it still would have been nice if they had not gotten so soft overall. they were cute, but also dangerous before. :(

The new update is amazing, great job to the artist(s)!!!

I also agree that I wish the chets orb was more illuminated and that the claws were sharper.

Mav

Ooh, very lovely remake! The new highlights make them look so sleek and refreshing. Great job on the new tail posing too.
I can't help but feel like the front feet are super tiny in comparison to the head though and that the middle, where the front and back leg meet, isn't super distinct on the non-light colourations.
Beautiful work over all though. These guys were certainly ready for their update!

Pegasus

I love the revamps that keep in the spirit of the old art but also improve upon it, although personally I like the old claws better, the sharp ends seem more powerful robot-ish.

@Sielbee

comparing the two commons, helpfully posted by Ninja below, the radar is extremely dull, no light coming from the screen. some of the other colors' palettes make it look more of a "working" screen, but the basis of the species (which all color revamps will thus be based upon) just has an uncharacteristic dark half-orb. I guess you could say it's turned off? but that makes no sense in context for the pet. :/

Marine

I like how they're starting to lean back towards their solid, bulkier original designs. Those things were lovely old clunkers!
I hope all the special poses don't change too much-- maybe to reflect the stockier anatomy, but not too much. I love my Storm, Angelic and Dark Matter Cadogres very much!

(Maybe the new Bloodred one might have the weird robot tentacles return, I always liked that little detail.)
2

CakeMoose

I can't believe I didn't notice how outdated the old art was *cringe* these new babies look so nice and sturdy!
I should look into getting one after the older special colors get updated
2

Sielbee

Anyway I do really like how the Nuclear look, I've never wanted a Nuclear pet before but I might have to change my Cadogre
0

Sielbee

It looks great overall, I just wish it had kept the same sharpness. They look more like toys now. Actually they look more plasticy than metallic now. But then since a toy is used to change a pet into a Cadogre maybe the toy look is intentional?

@Books I'm not sure what you mean but the crosshairs are still there, just harder to see especially on the common and arid, so not sure if that's the problem, that and it's not just a flat spot anymore

Woah, the new art looks so much nicer! :0 I miss the sharp claws they used to have, but overall, I think this is a big improvement.

Wait... Did Glade and Hydrus already get updated?! Or were their faces already without the microphones as people are calling 'em?

Boy, I'm looking forward to seeing what the special coloration poses look like, since I've got a few of my boys as them.
0

Books

while overall I love the new look, I'm really, really sad to see the claws turn into ~happy little puppy paws~ and all the spikes rounded off. :c


also curious why the targeting system has been turned into a misplaced looking random dull orb on its chest?

if we're turning them into robo-housepets now, why even keep it at all? aesthetics?

pandemonium

I enjoy how well the artist captured the material they're made of. They look very convincingly metallic now whereas the old one really felt more like plastic (think car body plastic).
My only question is: are the forehead/mane spines slightly off center? They seem to be hanging more towards the left side of the center line of the face..
2

Loki

The new one looks far more substantial, proportionate, and capable of robotic movement (the new appearance gives the impression that its got some pretty cool hydraulics going on behind the scenes). The artist has made the metal look like actual metal and the illustration of the joints is especially impressive. Fantastic redesign! I give it an A+

it reallyz looks great the only thing I'd change back is it's clawz since they look more dangerous on the older version then this one and not sure whyz the mic piece gotz removed but it looks awesome anyway ^^

Aw, all of their points got softer and rounded. I guess they're moving away from being tools of war and towards being housepet softies. :(

Even with my minor complaints, I'm very happy to see the second best robot get such a lovely upgrade. I am not at all worried about how my Scy is going to look if/when the dark matter one gets an update too. ♥ (which is great, because I love my robot pets)
I like how they just look heavier B U F F B O Y E, the more squared off and defined muzzle, the spikes on the tail are actually really cute now and, of course, how they stayed nice and shiny~

Well, hello there new design messing up the placement of the bro sticker on Dan Bell's page. lol I don't know if I want to try and fix it or just leave it. The Cadogre is just a place holder until I settle on a species for him.

Nice! It's good that such old art finally got a revamp! Love the dark cherry color.

I'm not into Cadogres though so I'll just be over here buried in the salt that MR TWO TENTACLES HYDRUS HARVESTER CAN'T EVEN SWIM.

Cant wait to see what my nightmare cadogre will look like eventually with these revamps. My baby will be even more awesome. :D

Nova

Lovely upgrade. I don't know what it is about that Twilight one... but he's speaking to me. Also love the happy accident that came from the cherry color, that dark red is so beautiful. The only thing I wished would have happened is that the tail would have gotten segmented like the legs were. That isn't necessarily an upgrade complaint, as I always wished that about the Cadogre, so that it looked like it could move around more.

That powerful stance, HOLY crap! What an AMAZING upgrade to one of my top favorite pets!!! Your Local Robot Enthusiast 120% approves of this amazing revamp. I barely have any more specific words. I am just screaming. Holy sweet bippy. Oh my god. Oh my god.

Atomic

Lookin' good! I used to have a Nuclear Cadogre a long time ago (I still have the pet, but I changed his species, color and name). I've always meant to get another one someday...this provides a little more motivation to do so. Saving my last pet slot for a Blobbity Blob though...

They are so much better now, great revamp! It's​ probably just me but they look fluffy. Fluffy metal robots but still.

It's funny how the common one is actually colored like most cherry pets should be, so the cherry cadogre has to be a burgundy color.
I love the update, and especially how they 'beefed' up like someone said :D
Well done!
