DFO Valentine's Day


Made in Paint Tool SAI.

The original designs for the ghosts depicted (Rhasa, Bremen, Kazan, Saya, and Blache) are the property of Neople/Nexon. Additional background ideas by Kasumei (http://cloudflash.net/fo rum/memberlist.php?mode=v iewprofile&u=220).

This is an entry for a Valentine's Day contest at DFO (Dungeon Fighter Online, a beat'em up style MMORPG). The requirements were:
a) The picture must have a male class giving Valentine's chocolates to a female class.
b) Sent in by February 11th.
The winner will receive some little DFO figurines. Runners up will just get one at random... I gave it my all and this is probably the best picture I've ever made, so I hope to win, though I know one of the other artists there is definitely more skilled than I am.

So, my idea is based on the "soul bender" class in the game. Slayers are cursed with a demon (called Kazan) living in their arm; the infection spreads and it attemps to take control of them. Slayers can become soul benders, people who basically tame the ghosts within their arm and summon them at will. In my picture, he gets them to carry roses and boxes of chocolates. I tried to make them look kinda sinister and stuff despite this being a Valentine's drawing. The girl is intended to be a fighter; more specifically, a nen master, one who harnesses an inner power called "nen". Basically soul benders embody darkness while nen masters are all about light. They just happen to be my two favourite classes in the game, so yeah. Took me around 3 days to finish this (not with all my spare time, of course).

DannyP responds:

Thanks for the support. I placed as a runner-up, though I don't know if that was 2nd place or 6th place. In Facebook comments/likes, I seemed to be third place, so I guess I lost either way.
