    Bah, I'm gonna go ahead and say it, since only a small part of my audience has ever played SMT

    (SPOILER)Lou is Lucifer. He is an important character throughout the series who is far less unambiguously evil than you'd think. Of course, his characterization largely depends on what alignment you choose, but most of the time he's characterized as someone rebelling against the status quo who wishes to free humanity from its chains. He's the epitome of the Chaos alignment, so if you're Law-aligned, he won't be very friendly to you.

    So far he's shown up as!

    Louis Cyphre (the vast majority of times this is his pseudonym though he's looked different)










    Most recently, he's taken a female guise, including Louisa Ferre



    And Hikaru!





    Honestly, making him a hipster/street artist felt like it fit the setting and the character's general theme. We'll see how well I can implement it in the story itself though >.>

    Honestly, one thing I've learned in the SMT games in IV is that if you go Neutral, both sides take offence at you, so you're kinda stuck between a rock and a hard place when you take a third option.

    Still depends on the game. Aside from IV, usually Lucifer is a pretty swell guy, ironically

    Why did they decide to switch to the totally different Hikaru? Unless Hikaru means something in Japanese?

    Basically, they switched it to make it a bit less obvious. But it's still not some random name - Hikaru has the same root kanji as Hikari, which means light. With Lucifer basically meaning "light-bearer", you can kinda see what they were going for.

    To be fair she was shady as smurf as soon as I first met her.

    She was just interested in you guys!


    To be fair, that's still subtler than Louisa's "I have no love for humans but I cannot abandon them" line.


    Yeah, the idea I have for Lou is kind of more human in my head. I guess he's just at a stage where he thinks he's got time and decides to just enjoy the human life and screw people around just a little before resuming his plot to lay siege to the Heavens

    Oooh, forgot to mention! The right eye is red only in the Dark Realm. When he's in the human world, they're both blue.

    That reminds me of the T.V show 'Lucifer' which is where the Devil himself grows bored being the Lord of Hell and abandons his kingdom to run a nightclub. Somehow he gets involved with the LAPD and assists a dectective in crime cases.

    That kinda 'I want to be among the humans and live life' vibe reminded me of the show. I've never seen it, but I've heard about it and it seems interesting, if kinda wacky. 'The Devil fights crime!'

    Well, he's still not really goody-goody, honestly. I can kind of see him seeing the potential in Jack and trying to get him on his side. But aside from that, his art is kind of how he tries to spread his godless might-makes-right philosophy. So he's dialing it back a bit, I guess.

    Still, this is a fanfic to Devil Summoner, not mainline SMT, so I want to make it much less gloomy and more fun (since Devil Summoner/Persona is the timeline where the worst stuff doesn't happen and people live relatively normal lives), so it makes sense for Lou to be a bit more, laid back, I guess?

    Here's Aida MacNamara!



    Aida's a newly employed assistant and Jack and Benny's office. Spunky and optimistic, Aida quickly accepts all the weird stuff happening around her when she starts working for the Goldsteins. She's happy to experience something new because she's still looking for her way in life.

    It was fun drawing a full-body pic of a woman since I haven't done that in a while, and though the proportions are still a bit off (Lou is so far the pinnacle of my drawing proportions), I still think this is the best I've done!

    Also, I notice that, with Aida's curves and Lou's muscles, my characters are becoming a bit more overtly sexy, and I'm not sure how I feel about that 0_o

    Ooooh I really like her! You didn't even need to tell me about her personality, as it was very clear on the paper. She's probably my favourite character, she seems really spunky!

    It's Benny time!



    Gave him a dress shirt and pants this time to make him a little more elegant and to show off his muscles a bit (the turtle neck kinda made him look fat XD). I also like that he has sneakers - they were a happy accident, actually.

    Also, another new pose! I dare say I'm getting better at these full-body pics!

    These are looking great! You're doing good with the full body poses!

    If you want prompts, you can always draw my characters
