I... I made it in time! I'm so happy.
This is my entry to this contest:
The G.A.M.E Game Dev./Manga 'n Anime Contest!!That's right ladies and gentlemen Game Development Art and Manga/Anime categories on Deviant Art are joining forces for a Feb to March long Contest! Hosted by :iconmaster-mune: :iconrydi1689: and :iconnyiana-sama: It is so appropriately labelled The G.A.M.E (The Gaming Anime Manga Experience)
The G.A.M.E Contest Information Do you have what it takes to finally tell your friends you won "The Game?" Your challenge if you choose to accept it, is to create a Game Screenshot experience! Can be traditional, digital, 3D: as long as it's Original! that's right! Only original characters, and original settings of your own creation may be entered. Game Development Art Category, and the Manga and Anime category on Deviant Art are not Fan-art Categories. They are not for your pictures of Zelda, or your pictures of Naruto: they are for your own original characters, your own original settings and any games/manga you collabora
These characters are my original characters in the manga I'm working on.
It's called Doll Weapon
. And well... the contest theme is making cutscene or screenshot by ourselves(meaning, it should be original).
I do plan on turning this manga of mine into game someday. So I hope I at least succeed with the manga project.
The group has only few members and I haven't added many details about the manga yet but if you want to check it out or are interested, please go here ->

Anyway, onto details about the background of these characters and story.
[From left to right in the picture]Orange/yellow head:
Azumi - She's the most reliable among these characters. She cooks, she takes care of the things needed to be taken care of and she fights using a short knife, but she isn't really into physical battle. More like, she uses her brain when necessary and this is mostly how she wins against her enemies.Red head:
Vann - He's a guy who always wear a smile on his face. Nearly no one can ever read what he's thinking, and he doesn't like explaining matters that can drag for more than five minutes, so he tend to write them on paper instead but in actuality, he is smart and an observant.Dark blue head:
Raishin - The main female character in the story. She's originally a sculptured doll, but was given a life and since then, she is struggling to learn how things work in this world. She met Azumi the first, and they traveled together. Raishin learns to fight, barehanded and she is quite strong, whether this is from the mysterious life force given to her or not is unknown yet. From being emotionless in the beginning, she eventually learns the emotions of humans and develops one for herself. Purple head:
Teiji - The main male character in the story. Most people tends to think that he is a lazy guy, but to him, he just doesn't like wasting his energy on things that he thinks unworthy. But his character develops as the story progressed. If at first, he never opened up to anyone, later on in the story, he'll learn to trust and rely on certain people.Brown head:
Miko - A supporting character. She's a magic-user and she can almost do everything with her magic. But in return, her energy gets sucked along with the force so she usually can't run or fight physically. She has a sadist side to her.
The story takes place in a world where magics, sorcerers and anything almost impossible come into life. It is a mixed of historical, yet modern fantasy universe and it has science fiction elements on it too.Genre:
This is a game where you can control the main character(default) or others(you choose) and then go in an adventure, with the group. A certain mission is what they have to complete, and while on their way, take requests or jobs from people to earn money for their daily living and for other things.
In this cutscene, they are inside of a dungeon as they found the item that they were looking for. That blue bottle glowing has a magic force inside it and only Miko, who is a full magic-user can touch it.

Thank you to everyone who views it! I did my best with the shading and background so I'm really satisfied with how it turned out. Even if I don't get chance to win the contest, I'm so proud of this work! I'm also grateful to this contest that gave me the chance to create something beyond the usual! I'm really happy! (Finally I can at least shade properly)
