"Evil", but I think it's cute lol

but how can something rated e have blood?

Gekasso responds:

It's a red paint

It might sound benign, but I like your background for these "character / monster exhibit" pieces! It has a very.. 'matrix'-y vibe? Perfect to concentrate the eyes on the subject, but still has enough little detail to not be a flat gradient.. I'm not sure how to explain it! It's just really pleasing! x)

The ghost smiling almost makes it feel like it just wants to hug the viewer... but then the blood might make you reconsider. hehe x)

Saw your reply to Putney and I could 100% see this in a game! Maybe something along the lines of Slay the Spire? Whatever you eventually do with these concept arts, I'll check out! <3

Gekasso responds:

Textures on background make everything more eye catchy ;3

Yeah, I think card game/strategy manager would fit perfectly, I wish I knew how to program.. I spend too much brain resources on drawing, learning music production and blender..

And thank you!

hmmm, interesting monster potential!
Like it could drain years from a character in almost Dorian grey fashion, and if the back side was a mirror that reflected magic back, it could be quite and encounter.
Maybe this fiend more a cursed frame, and it victims become it's portrait?
In any case, clever choice of using the drapery as prehensile limbs, but also making it match the figure in the portrait, which makes also visual good vibes but also give the sense of them reaching out. also conflicting the blur with the stern brassy frame is fine contrast, and quite eye catching.
Thank you for making this.

Gekasso responds:

Thanks! The idea was the ghost is trapped inside the portrait, so the only thing he can do is levitate the portrait and use the curtains as limbs to attack people.
I love to draw monsters concept art in case one day I'll find a way to make my own game.

This is gorgeous.💙

Gekasso responds:

Thank you! ^^
