pleasure to meet you, prepare to bleed by tlwelker pleasure to meet you, prepare to bleed by tlwelker
New cover for chapter 1! The original chapter cover was so bleh that most people don't even know it had one! I axed it pretty early on, huu.

Something relatively calm and standard for this cover, it IS the intro after all! I can't wait to go nuts later, y'know...when more has been revealed and such.

It's not my favorite song in the world, but [ 30 Seconds to Mars - Night of the Hunter ]'s lyrics are ridiculously relevant to the first prologue arc of Heartcore. When I first heard it I thought it was pretty cool, haha! No joke, the lyrics are in the video description and it's ridiculous. Hence the title of this deviation. :U
---
This chapter gets it's [ Idiosyncratic Episode Naming ] from Disgaea 2!

Despite Ame's very notable similarities to Lina Inverse/Ryoko Hakubi, her story and role is far more similar to that of Rozalin's, so~! (She's my head waifu~~ ;u;)

Plus when Ame isn't likened to a strawberry, rose is usually the next metaphor down the list.

I'm going to ask a question I already know the answer to, are you going to leave the original pages up elsewhere for viewing/comparison? It's always a treat to see art grow but I'm aware from a previous devation >:U that you're not fond of your older art and like hiding it.

Also, very nice image I like the lay out and as I've stated 250k times, the colors.

Oh no I know that, I was wondering if you'd go the whole hog and have a top row of earlier and a bottom row of recent. But it was still awesome to see :)

It would probably be rubbing salt into the wound, then, to mention that I picked up the incredibly thick strategy guide for it when I got my copy years ago.

The one with the complete item index.

And the Dark World maps.

Well she a lot more like Rozalin in general she always has been, but there is that teasing naughtiness that Ryoko and Lina had that is a large part of Ame's personality. Ame always dresses business attire yet sexy, she's very much a character with depth because half of her wants to be like her dad, she's in denial of it, and half like her mother, although she is more in control of herself then to marry a Royce. Her clothing reflects that conflict being neither business wear nor sexy as does her choice in jewels and neckwear, in time her conflict will result in her being her own person but she's heavily in danger as a character of becoming like Royce, she has subconsciously made a play to be in charge of the council, she already at war with most of it, without a good influence it won't be long before she kills them and take over, as we have seen that is the demon way.

lol That's what I see anyway, I could be wrong

I gotta say Rozalin is at the top of my list of favorite video game leading females. Ame struck a similar note in my heart when I first laid eyes on her as well (which was basically seconds after I was looking at your old Rozalin fanart).

Wow Royce, you got some impressive pearly whites.

Anywho, I just realized how dark the backgrounds are when the characters are in this area, especially around the ground. And coupled with the characters' dark clothing here, it's a little hard for them to stand out. Ame is a bit of an exception, since she has that red glowy aura thing going on there.

I am liking the detail of the background, though, and the poses and faces of the characters are just dandy. Swell work, this is!

Yaryar, I may want to consider some things...but thankfully the bulk will take place in the palace (again), so!

I don't shade with full-on black anymore, thank god ;; But my monitor is pretty bright so I could still be making it a bit too dark for others! ;;

Thank you!
