March 5th by OoAmmyoO March 5th by OoAmmyoO
"Memento mori."

It's the 5th day of March, 00:00AM sharp.
... One moment of silence please.
...
...


Thank you.

This is a job that stretched throughout this week, simply because I felt I needed to properly celebrate this date. You can find links to each one of the drawing's steps in the gallery. (If you want a list with more pictures, please ask. I do not mind.)

<<<SPOILERS WARNING SPOILERS WARNING SPOILERS WARNING SPOILERS WARNING

This is a memento for the characters of Persona 3, in one of the most memorable moment for the players of the game, when the MC dies after offering his/her own soul to protect our world. In the following days he/she continues to live by sheer force of will (often referred as being "very tired" by the game) until the day they promised to meet up with their friends on the roof of the school, when then they finally fell asleep to wake no more. They probably wanted to keep their word until the very the end.

(cut from my own comment below) <
Peace for those who left... Sorrow for those left behind. That was the idea that I wanted to pass with this image... And I also doubt you have noticed... But there are two butterflies left behind: blue, they are standing still over the bodies of the main characters. One on Minato's chest, another on the Minako's back. And for those who are familiar with other games in the series, there is a well known golden butterfly taking them away ...

SPOILERS END SPOILERS END SPOILERS END SPOILERS END SPOILERS END>>>

It took me a while to decide the poses too. I sketched quite a bit around the drawing until I decide them. Ken's, Koromaru's and Akihiko's are my favorites from the ones behind, although I like all of them, of course *giggle. I was also thinking about how to draw the MCs ... It would be good to draw them sad or looking at the ones that they will leave behind, I thought? But then I realized that if there is something that they believe are their friends, they are strong enough and will understand what they both did eventually. So I do not think they departed with sadness. I think the two should be happy with the world they left for those who move on. And that's what I drew.
>

I do not lie when I say that this was one of the games that made ​​me pause to reflect on my own life. He has a very unique way of dealing with very mature themes such as relationships, future, and death itself. No wonder he got a R18 in some places.

If you like complex games and/or rpgs with a good plot behind it, please go ahead. I recommend games in very, very, very rare cases.

Thank you so much for reading!
Have a great day, every day.

The moment I saw this I just started crying. There were many instances throughout the game that made me cry, but seeing this was like taking all those pieces and compiling them into one big heartrending image. It's so beautiful and sad all at once that it really just puts me at a loss of what to say. This is absolutely gorgeous.

In the PSP version of the game, you can play as the Female MC. If you get Shinjiro's Social Link to max you give him a pocket watch on your last date. The watch absorbed the bullet that should have killed him when he was shot by Tanaka.

Wow, I know it's been said before but this is beautiful. I love that you explained your reasoning for how you drew it, it's always an experience to get behind whatever thoughts behind the creation! It's certainly beautiful and what an amazing touch to have them look so ethereal and...happy. Amazing work, thank you for making it :)

Great game so far, but I didn't managed to beat this game yet. -____-

Well, looking at the title and the description, I bet this is the day that both protagonists technically died (but I guess it's a long sleep for both of them)

Looking at the date, I remembered that my mother's birthday happens at the same date with the event happening in this art.


Seeing this art actually had made me heartbroken (spoilers, no!!) since I've currently obsessed with the Female Protagonist. TwT

That would Philemon. He is an iconic figure of persona since the very first game, though he is 'gone' from P3 onwards. He is a man with a butterfly mask who initially gave the characters from the game their personas  Although he no longer appears in his human form, he still 'appears' in the games in his butterfly shape. Philemon is  formed out of people's desires for growth and hope, and is considered one's spitual guide.

I haven't finished the very first game and the ending part of the second game yet (P2 is divided in 2 games) but I have played P3 and P4 too many times, mostly because I have watched/replayed with my friends as well. They're hooked on the Megami series now, and it's aaaaalllll my fault. XD

I am cry. This... is my favorite game. Hands down. I cried every time I played it through... especially on MC's route and I can't save Shinjiro (when on FeMCs he's merely comatose... if you max out the S.Link). But nicely done. I am filled with so many feelings of this game.
