Elphaze's Profile Picture

Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
Hello everyone !!! You can call me Elphaze or just El ( ・ω ・)ノ

I'm currently the male sprite artist for the visual novel Lucid9 which is also available on steam for free:…

But mainly I'm just a random hobbyist drawing whatever I want c:
I'm more active on my twitter~




The Moomins!
A little bit different from what I usually do, but I decided to revisit my childhood show after I bought some Moomin mugs. A very good decision as I’m very happy too see this lovely family again. It’s so fun to discover new moments and also freshening up memories that have gone blurry over the years. A lot of things has changed with how I view the series, and in a good and exciting way! 

Persona 3 Dancing moon night!
I couldn't believe it when I first saw the promo artwork and almost dismissed it as a very good fanart. I expected a Persona 5 spin-off, but P3 dancing game came off as a big happy surprise! Thought Persona Q would be the last game where they were featured in

Tbh, I don't care what kind of game it is, but I'm just so glad to see the P3 cast back in the spotlight again~~ 

Recently I've joined a visual novel project called Lucid9, and I thought I should say a little bit about it ;3 It's a really enjoyable experience to be a part of this even though it eats quite some of your time haha XD 
And if you wonder what a visual novel is, it's basically a story told through a game where you yourself choose your own route. 

Lucid9 by Elphaze>

Here’s an incontrovertible, absolute truth: Fate likes to screw you over.

You see, I was a fairly average kid. Yama Ishimoto, ordinary high school student, ordinary citizen in the metropolis of Isamu.

Anomalous accidents? Haphazard serial killings? It happens. No big deal.

Then, somehow, I was suddenly entangled in the midst of it all

Let me tell you: it became a pretty big deal.

Our visual novel will have a common route centered around Comedy, Slice of Life, and gradually Mystery, while heroine routes will be heavily centered on Mystery, Drama and Romance. Don't be fooled by the seemingly "Ordinary school life" setting, as Yama said it himself : "It became a pretty big deal."

We don’t have exact numbers in mind, but we’re currently aiming for a 5 hour long common route, and between 20 and 30 hours for the whole VN.


Also, this is the alpha demo, so we're going to improve it waay more in the future ;3 But feel free to come with any kind of feedback!

Didn't know you had deviantart, have to say I loved lucid9!  Also I know your in the art section but do you happen to know how is the progress of the voice patch or the second part of the novel? I've been looking forward to it since I finished the first part.

Hello! I'm glad you enjoyed it! I can't say more than what's been revealed already, but we're continuously working on it c: The progress  might be a bit slow since we're all doing this in our free time, but there definitly is progress! As for me I'm currently working on the new sprites~

Do you have any tips to drawing clothing wrinkles and folds? 0.0
I can't draw wrinkles or folds that well T^T
Elphaze Featured By Owner Edited Apr 9, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Uhu, I don't think I'm the best person to ask, but I'll try to give some tips.

I believe observation is very important, not only manga/anime references but also in real life. 
Pay attention to how the folds change with the body position. After a while, you'll notice that the same wrinkles will appear in similar places. For instance the wrinkles when you bend your arm. I used to watch  the folds on my teacher's sweater as he was teaching. Now that I think about, now I sound like a creep orz

Then try to draw what you see, maybe from a photo. But keep in mind that even the folds in photo might look off sometimes. Slowly you'll get a feel of what's natural and not, and you'll be able to draw them without looking at references.

I'd say experience is the most important. For me, tutorials usually didn't help me much. I just drew a lot and it came naturally, though I personally still have problems with it and tend to minimize the amount of wrinkles hehe (^^ ; Remember that everything takes time, and people have their own paces, so no need to rush at all c:

Hope it made sense!
