Jack the Reaper - Promo Poster by Rakugaki-otoko Jack the Reaper - Promo Poster by Rakugaki-otoko
Official title of this image: Lunar Ark
(but I couldn't fit that into the deviation's title)

please, click "download" to view the image at it's full size.
wouldn't want you to miss out on any details.

This took me forever to finally finish. but seeing all the people cheering me on when I posted the work-in-progress version gave me encouragement. I'm glad to have you all here.

well, here it is. the finished poster. Thanks to ~godsavant for QA during these past few minutes of finishing up. Since the picture is so massive, I would advise against printing it out yourself unless you have a special printer or something.
This is intended to look like one of those pull-out posters you'd get from Nintendo Power.

It's so crowded, ne?

Here is the order of things I did to make this image:
-Drew up the lineart on a larger than normal sheet of paper using pencil
-Ink everything and erase pencil lines
-Scan the sheet in two parts, then save them as monochrome images and reattach them.
-Open in MS Paint and color the characters and moon
-open up game maker, make an image the size of this image and fill with two different blue gradients.
-connect the two gradients into one giant gradient
-go into JtR game file and take ocean and cloud sprites
-expand sprites and place onto gradient
-overlay colored characters and moon with transparent background onto gradient image
-go into JtR game file and take the title screen graphic and DB logo graphic
-expand graphics and place on top of poster
-draw jet streams in the sky just for fun

I included every single enemy type in the game (at the time) but there are many more now, so don't worry about being spoiled.

I feel like I should write a lot more about this image, but I can't think of much else.

I love you all, and thank you for your support. hope you enjoy this.

I would really enjoy it if you could take the time to comment on this picture if you favorite it. thank you

aha, thank you! I'm glad it had that effect on you!
(Um, what was your username in the livestream? I've got a bad memory)
Yep, Eclipsus always has bad luck, so she's in the background of this image.

i was rufi! (rufimochi) you played parts of the game to show me : D it was really cool! Thank you again.
Aww poor Eclipsus!

ahh, cool! I remember you! Neat! I'm actually planning on livestreaming here in an hour or so tonight. So come on in, if you feel like it again ^^
Can't wait for the game to come out!
I really love how you put so much detail in each figure.
and gotta love those clouds. The way they wrap around the moon looks great.
Got it! I want you to take your time so you can make it the best it can be!

Thank you very much! I'm still working on it, but I'm pretty busy this month. Don't worry, it will come out whenever I'm finished!

Rakugaki da-kun, when I see the work of MarZhou I remember your art and character animation.

F;iphdlgp;fheiguh;fg;i'vhldhbvgkbgdlg I never realized you were working on a game! When I found you I was in the middle of a "watching spree", so I only took a quick glance at your works. This looks awesome! Now I'mma wait for the game just like everyone else!

haha~ It's been going on for several months now, actually. You can try the demo, if you'd like. look in my last journal, labeled the same title as the game.
