Endgame by Neuroid Endgame by Neuroid
Ugh, this didn't turn out as good as I thought. OTL
KyuuKyuu-kun was surprisingly easy to color though.

__

In Yume Nikki you have this protagonist (Madotsuki) who can enter lucid dream state and explore a huge nightmarish world in her head. I guess the easiest to avoid theory making is to say she does so, thinking that if she confronts her fears, they will disappear. But after finishing with collecting every effect and exploring everything there is, the world is still there, which leads to her suicide.

I thought it was kind of sad that it ended this way at first. But then again, walking out the door wouldn't really change anything for her.

It stinks, she probably thought that she was still dreaming, so she jumped in hopes to maybe wake up before she hit the bottom?

And considering no second game came out, I'm assuming so... :XD:

This is really lovely. :) I like it, you're very talented.

Oh god. This game made me tear up.
I have to say that I really like the last panel, and that smile on her face just adds to the atmosphere of the picture. Well done. ;)

This is truly amazing. You're very talented. I especially love this one because, she's smiling. About to die, and smiling. Also the fact that at the point in the picture where she jumps, all the hands are reaching for her. Like, they didn't know it would happen, and they didn't want her to go. This is lovely.

Oh, thank you!
I suppose you can interprete this as you like. My own intention was for it to look like they destroyed that little hesitation she had left and gave her the final push.
They are the reason she's in that position after all.

i think she was rlly just pushing herself to suiciding bcse its all in her mind bcse of her insanity and i like the pic alot its like so epic and sad at the same time its just some weird feeling and i think she was grining at the end cuz she did all that she could and analized her past life now she sees that she has nothing else but be free.... i rlly loved the pic its very different from what u see in YN fanarts its very epic and u did everyone perfectly as i see and i love monoe's face cuz it looks like a tentative or rhape face XD

It's a computer game named Yume Nikki, you can download it here [link] (you're gonna need that wiki page too, so keep it bookmarked)

It's completely exploration based, and speculations what's going is left for the player to decide.

sorry, i know this is supposed to be serious but...it's really silly of her to sit on the edge like that=P
anything could happen, as shown here...
(this is just looking at the pic without reading the explanation)
anyway, this is very well done, i really like ur art style:) very natural (not stiff)

oh em ef gee, it's awesome!!! :iconlachoirplz:
;u;
I had the honor to see this work in the making ;//u//; And I was waiting for it eagerly! :la:
U know, the 2nd frame remains my fave one. I dunno why, it must be the many figures. the frame looks so full and nice ;u;
The shadow u put on the first frame really does help fill it out >u<
I luv the texture on the last one! :la:

ps: *still is jealous over u ability to draw hands ;n;*

I do have to agree with you; the game is supposed to be depressing and dark, and the best fanart reflects that. Though if fans want to draw Moesada, that's their prerogative, and if drawing cheery art makes them feel better, I can't knock them for it even it's not 'accurate.'

That being said, this really is an amazing picture. The expression on the dream characters is great -- Monoe looks so giddily evil, and Masada is seriously scary-looking. That last panel is incredible too, great us of lighting/shadow ^^

I know what you mean. I have laughed through many parodies of the game's ending, and I enjoy lighthearted fanart a lot, but I guess it was the general feel I hated so much in that particular piece. :/

asjhfg Thank you for the feedback.
I tried to interpret Masada's avatar, since his face kinda resembles a skull from what I see, but most avatars miss mouths an the like, it makes it kinda hard. Plus his fingers look really messed up, it makes me wonder what would he need a piano for, doesn't seem like he can play it.
