Persona pictures I've made, now and in the past.

I've not yet gotten around to make any progress in blogging on this site. I thought I'd put something in here now, so why not a picture I've made of my favorite character in Persona 2: Eternal punishment, Mr Baofu what'shislastname.

I've only come about halfway into the game yet, but so far the most entertaining character has been the cynical information-broker Baofu, often in conversation with Ulala. I cannot remember the last time I've seen someone look so damn cool in banana-yellow coat and trousers while wearing Ozzy Osbournesque glasses. So here's to him!

It's pretty simple, Especially the background, I do not put that much energy in doing these minor drawings but it's very fun. Great way to spend an evening.

I've also done some others before. These are the ones I finished and didn't just start at and leave unfinished.

Oh... Oh no.... I did this one before I even played Persona 4, and I actually thought it was pretty good at the time... When I look at it now though... The cheesy pose was probably because I didn't know what the character really was like when I did it. Just thought: "She looks energetic, let her do a peace-sign!". Stupid, I know. Also looks pretty unpolished. The shading is sloppy and and the colouring is not very good.

"Shoot yourself in the head. Go on. It won't hurt." Well, I've already tried to watch TV at midnight, put my hand through the screen and also yell persona and call down a tarot card. Can't hurt to try this one too!

This one is alright. Not too bad if I'd say it myself.

This one I am still pretty fond of. Maybe not the face so much, but the pose and the shoes. Shoes are always some of the things I'm worst at drawing, they're either too big or too small or really blocky and clumsy-looking. Theese look kinda slick, maybe too high on the heels but overall... Did this one before playing the game also.

Probably figured out that I like the persona-series a little. Pretty much found out about it last spring and has been plowing through the game since. The character and persona-designs always looked so slick and imaginative, it's really inspiring and I guess that's one of the reasons I hold the series so dear right now. I mean just look at the persona designs for P2. They look so mordern, so slick, so incredibly weird and creative. Kinda like fashionmodels at some freaky fashionshow, probably also with Jean Paul Gaultier attending. While I like P4 the most I do think that every game in the series has strength of it's own.

In P2 IS it's a story about rumors and of sins commited in the past, in P3 it's very fun and varied bosses and events at the end of every month and P4 has it's bright charm and murdermystery going for it. And almost all games (never really got into the first one) have great characters and portrayals. This is probably not the last time I depict persona-characters so to say.

Have a good evening/night/morning. I hope you enjoy it.

Really cool work man, thanks for sharing. I'm no artist, but I can tell you have a real knack for drawing clothes and natural looking proportions. Which isn't easy to do. Keep it up homey!

I like the P3 one, although his grin looks kind of goofy :P

great work overall though

Thanks! Fun to hear that you like it!

Proportions can be hell sometimes, it's not always clear from the beginning exactly how long parts of the body should be in comparison to others and sometimes my eyes fool me and I realise that something looks wrong when I've gotten pretty far. That can be very annoying.

I wanted to make the P3 MC (or Minato as he's also called) look pretty mad for effect in the pic. The smile and the lack of eyebrows is the cause of that. :P

I like'em, very nicely done. As mentioned above, you did a pretty damn solid job on the proportions, something very often iffy.
