SMT - Goodbye Halcyon Days by WitheringMoon SMT - Goodbye Halcyon Days by WitheringMoon
*Download for full-sized image*

My entry for the latest loading screen contest with SMT: Imagine. My character Sharvari and friends. :meow:

Look at all those emo Devil Busters standing around, IT'S LIKE THE CLAVICULA SALOMONIS AND AN ABERCROMBIE & FITCH AD HAD A BABY. A fabulous, pretentious and slightly heretical baby.

This didn't come out exactly the way I wanted it to; originally, I was going to do more of a dynamic shot. That would have made the scene quite a bit more claustrophobic, so I stayed with a straight-on view.

As always, thank you for viewing! :iconbowplz:

Sharvari looks like a true queen of chaos, and I like it.

Halcyon is a term for an idyllic time, when everything was pretty much safe and perfect. The exact opposite of most SMT games. xD

I like this! I love the composition and the figures! Do you use photo reference or draw from your head?

Thank you very much! This was done with a mental image in mind, the only photo reference I used was for the hanging incense burner.

Lawl. So this is your DA account, huh Kikuri_Hime1? You might not know who I am, but I am one of your biggest fan from the forums. I really enjoyed your latest loading screenshot for the MT event. Unfortunately, my version of Pyro Jack wasn't good enough, or somehow fit into the MT theme universe=p. -will bee watching ya-

Oh my goodness, thank you!! *'3'* I thought your Pyro was lovely (same with the Frosty version), it's a shame it's not a loading screen. :/

Is it weird for me to think that that little Beezlebub looks cute and I want one? :iconiloveitplz:

And what's the purpose of SMT Imagine? I've always wanted to try and play it...does it cost anything?

:iconwitheringmoon:
WitheringMoon Featured By Owner May 27, 2011   Digital Artist
Nah, not weird at all, I want one too~ Such a fluffy, angry fly. ~:heart:

Honestly, Imagine has a great community, and if you're just starting out, there's quite a bit to do. It's a free-to-play MMO, that offers additional stuff that you can get for your character for real money, if you so choose. It's set in the period between SMT 1 and SMT 2, so it's interesting to see what went on in-between games. I can recommend it if your a fan of the franchise at all, especially since it's free. :3

Hmmm...I'm not really into MMOs, but this one actually sounds fun! Although, the only SMT games I've played are P3, P4, and Devil Survivor (and am currently playing DDS). Maybe I'll check it out xD

It's very reminiscent of the old SMTs, but it's very playable either way. :meow:

This is too amazing for me to find words for. But I shall try!

I really wish I had the attention span to do a big group picture like this. So much going on at once~ So many expressions, outfits, and demons. It really captures a lot about SMT: Imagine, and the sociable aspects of this MMO. Seriously...I've played so many MMOs and NO ONE talks...it's just quiet and everyone doing their own thing. Imagine is the FIRST MMO I've played with people shouting and chatting in public.

I never thought I would see a Gyuki look so cute and cuddly...lol

Sweet work~ I look forward to seeing this as a loading screen. :D

I agree with Imagine being a more social MMO, totally. The community is small enough that you'll run into a lot of the same people, but they're social enough that the game and the forums aren't total ghost towns.

I was honestly worried that the picture would end up being too "busy" with so many people and demons in it; I still kinda think it is a little crowded, but I'm pleased with it overall. And seeing this particular Gyuki in-game so much makes me think of him as a big slobbery doggie. ;3

Thank you so much! :D Wish me luck!!

You don't need luck, you got this one in the bag. :D But still, good luck! I want to see this in game!

I'm playing Rift right now cause my bf wants to. Seriously...no one talks, not even in the guild. I just see "Congratz!" when I reach an achievement and then "Heal plz" when I'm doing field battles. That's it. No other conversations going on. While as I can just sit in Shinjuku Babel or Nakano all day and enjoy the random shouts and conversations all around.

That's a big beef with me with online games...I'm not EXTREMELY talkative, but I like to randomly chat and joke around with people, and a lot of communities just don't have that kind of sociability. D:

Yeah, really. I don't have to be chatting with my party the whole time. But when a whole dungeon run is like "................................................................." ...I feel there's something wrong.
