It's time once more for an RPGamer Fanart contest. This one is for Okage: Shadow King, Sony's forthcoming RPG title, a game which centers around a boy and his wicked devil of a shadow. Thus, the focus of this contest will be on the great antagonistic force which drives most RPGs: the villains. Submissions for this contest should focus on any RPG villain, and there are plenty of evil-doers out there to choose from.
The submitted art is not required to reflect the art found in Okage: Shadow King. It can be of any villainistic character in our RPG coverage. Pick the villain you think you can express most powerfully and artistically as a force of evil and darkness. Contest submissions will be accepted through Halloween, October 31st.
Send all contest entries to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to specify in your subject line that your entry is a part of the contest, and not a standard fanart submission. All rules listed in the Submission Guidelines still apply.
Contest prizes include 2 copies of Sony's Okage: Shadow King for the PlayStation2, and 2 bottle openers, resembling the demon character Stan from Okage: Shadow King for the PlayStation 2.
