Remake of:

After changing much of the cast, either character design or removing/adding characters, I decided to put another one with most of my OCs.

Who are the characters? I provided a map here:…
I am inspired by the Chinese novel 水浒传 (Shui Hu Zhuan), perhaps popularised by the KONAMI game Suikoden.

Comments and :+fav:s are highly appreciated.

Thanks a lot for Damaged927 for suggesting my piece for a DD and Nyiana-sama for featuring it! I got my second DD today!
What a pleasant surprise.

To those who commented and :+fav: my work, I don't know if I have time to reply one by one but I will try...
but at the moment I generally thank those who comment and :+fav: for it.

Imperial Army by =Grishend The suggester says: "I am thoroughly impressed with the sheer amount of patience that this piece took to make! Each character has a very distinct and individual feel to them and this has a ton to do with their outfits! They are great and look like they were each meticulously designed. Patience of a God I say! The colors all work beautifully together and the main focus character looks great! I like the glow that she has and her expression is perfect!" ( Suggested by Damaged927 and Featured by Nyiana-sama )

Your working always carries originality and depth, and it turns out you also make stories? That's just great! Amazing work! I don't need to say anything like 'keep it up' because i know you will. I envy you

Suikoden, eh? Never played the games really, but I liked the manga interpretation of Suikoden III ^^

BTW, I have a question.. Does the cammel-horses-like things the plainsmen people use as mounts have a name in that universe? I would loan those beasts into my D&D world...

Quickly readed, so it wasnt actualy Suikoden, feels free to ignore that question XD and all
Nice, nice pic anyway

The Blond girl at the top looks like Maka Albarn from Soul Eater.
