Fanart– Completed Inevera by qMargot

Posted by Karen

Hey everyone! A little while ago we put up a post of some art fans were working on.

Today, one of them has officially been completed! qMargot from twitter recently sent us their finished piece and it looks absolutely stunning. See for yourself:

Inevera casting her warded dice. It took me a while but I’m finally finished

This is incredible! Thanks so much for letting us see the piece’s progress (it was 100% worth the wait!). I especially love the pose and cool light effects. I wonder what secrets the dice are revealing…

Fanart– 2D Arlen Sprite

Posted by Karen

Hey everyone! Man, what I wouldn’t give for a Demon Cycle RPG…

There’s been a lot of talk over the years about a Demon Cycle video game. Some people have even gone so far as to create skins in pre-existing ones. We’ve got Warded Man skins for Skyrim and Minecraft. That’s not even mentioning all Demon-Cycle-Inspired D&D and Homebrew games.

Have I ever mentioned how great fans of The Demon Cycle are? Seriously. Demon Cycle nerds are best nerds.

Recently, we found someone who’s going one step further. Jordie Bowen, a fan from London, sent in this concept for a 2D JRPG-style video game sprite of Arlen Bales. The sprite was created for a project at university and it makes the gamer in me so frikken happy. Check it out!!

There is nothing I don’t love about this. From the name (2Demon, I love it) to the character itself… guh, it’s so good! Definitely makes me want to play.

If that wasn’t awesome enough, Jordie is the same person who put up all those amazing animatic we’ve been showing off recently. That’s right, this is the guy who created this amazing vid:

This is so exciting. I can’t wait to see more!

Demon Cycle– Characters As Pokemon

Posted by Karen

Hey everyone! Remember when Peat figured out what Disney counterparts his characters had (Leesha as Belle, Jardir as Aladdin, etc.)?

Well, with last month’s release of Pokemon, I decided to commemorate the occasion by doing the same thing. Here are some of the Pokemon I think Demon Cycle characters would be…

Arlen: Arcanine

 arcanine

Loyal, covered with markings, plus a secret (sort of) legendary.

Leesha: Gardevoirgardevoirleesha

A beautiful Pokemon that will kick your ass with Magical Leaf.

Rojer: Mr. Mimemr-_mimerojer

You know Mr. Mime would be a jongleur. He just would.

Renna: Tyrogue

tyrouge

Pure fighting type, whose abilities includes ‘guts’.

Inevera: Marowak (Alolan Form)

marowak

“It’s said that their great care for their partners allowed them to gain something like a sixth sense and resulted in their changed form.” I think it fits perfectly. Plus, y’know. Fire and bones.

Jardir: Mewtwomewtwojardir

A master of his destiny.

Abban: Meowthmeowth

The purr-fect salesman.

Bruna: Granbullgranbull

Don’t mess with Bruna.

Mind Demon: Abra

abra

The psychic brains behind the brawn.

Mimic Demon: Ditto ditto

Obviously.

Do you agree? Or do you think another Pokemon would fit one of the Demon Cycle characters better? Let us know in the comments!

Fanart: Attack On The Farm Animatic!

Posted by Karen

Hey everyone! Remember those storyboards Jamie Sims did on The Tale Of The Return?

Essentially, Jamie put out a full animatic from The Warded Man. This is the scene where Keerin tell the Tale of the Return:

Awesome, right?? If that wasn’t enough, Jamie recently put a second animatic of the Attack On The Farm scene. This is a follow-up to the previous video and it is absolutely incredible. Seriously, check this out:

I’ve got chills.
