DnF - Valentine's day Event Speed paint

Currently, in Dungeon and Fighter Korea, there's an event where you have to color in one of three outlines and submit it as an event for a prize.
Al, has decided to do his own take on it.

This is definitely different for him. He has to apply his own style to something to a base line art, and the start is very awkward (detailing the face first and then moving on).

This speed paint is based on the most recent avatar sets released in Korean DnF.
What's restricted him the most seems to be the base art style. The Mage's head is HUGE and it looks iffy.

Because this is based almost directly on something else, the detailing on these two characters is very nice. The hairs are distinctly ATK and the soft shading works well.

PERSONA -trinity soul-


Our Home's Fox Deity

To be honest, I'm not sure how I feel about this. NIS america's more recent works with Ar Tonelico II and Cross Edge have left me caring less and less about the company. I like Ar Tonelico II as a game and really want to play Ar Tonelico III, but when you have a company that purposefully removes voices because their own voice actors couldn't fill roles, have spelling mistakes, and forget to even convert and translate some of the japanese text, it leaves me wondering.

Having read through some visual novels (not by NIS) I generally ignored spelling errors and the occasional grammatical WTF, but thinking back on it now, I can't do the same with NIS. They should have a large enough staff of beta testers and quality control that major bugs, and aesthetics shouldn't be there. They're making rookie mistakes and it's making me question their other work. Just look at the email they sent. Notice how it says "Pandra Hearts"? I didn't do that, that was a copy and paste. You can look for yourself assuming they didn't change it by the time this is posted.

Stuff like this shouldn't happen, and it worries me when they start licensing anime.
I'm not sure if you've seen the Disgaea 3 opening as subbed by NIS America. It's pretty bad. The translation is....different from what I'm hearing and the subtitles themselves are extremely loud and the type set is a bit large. I'm glad that they're licensing anime and getting more content into our market, but I'm a bit skeptical at the quality it will distributed.

New Poll

I'm changing polls. The new poll will be about your monitor size. I need to figure out a good size that would accommodate all and make the stream better. Currently it's at 600 X 375 (16:10 HD ratio) and I'd like to increase it but i'm not sure as to how what the max resolution is for everyone. I can't accommodate everyone, but worse comes to worst i may need to do Lowest common denominator.

By the way, I only posted 16:10 resolutions so pick the closest one to your monitor.
