Shin Megami Tensei

Yaksini and Eddie

This is another annual commission for one of my Master Tier Subscribers. This one’s an odd one, and I think it exists mostly as a way to get these two characters into the Studio. At the very least, the commissioner said they felt their wasn’t enough art out there of either character. Yaksini is a demon enemy in Shin Megami Tensei, and I don’t think there’s much to the character beyond that. Eddie Archer (Imada Kanchi) is one of Nate’s friends in Yo-kai Watch. Other than maybe a loose relationship with the supernatural these two have nothing connecting them, but here they are anyway. The commissioner wanted to see them in the Amazon position, and I went with a high angle to really highlight their already noteworthy size difference.

Maki, Isabeau & Argilla

This is another commissioned piece featuring Isabeau and Argilla (who I’ve drawn before), and introducing Maki Sonomura from Megami Ibunroku Persona, the first in the acclaimed Persona series. Not too much to say about this one, other than that I like the pose the commissioner and I decided on for this one. I think everyone turned out looking pretty good.

Isabeau and Chiaki

This is a commissioned piece I recently did if Isabeau (Shin Megami Tensei IV) with Chiaki Hayasaka (Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne). The pose here was chosen by the commissioner and is based of an existing piece.

I’m pretty happy with this one, even though I’m not terribly familiar with the Megami Tensei franchise. All the same, it’s pretty exciting to be introduced to characters in this fashion, and that goes double when the picture turns out as well as this one did.
