BrownDust2_FanArt
Since there were many incredible submissions for the fanart category, we decided to base our selections on whether or not the artwork deepened our love for the official characters even further. This illustration made excellent use of the designs of the characters in Fire Chip and depicted them in a fun and colorful style. We loved the user's artistic choices, from the design of the font in the background to the overall color scheme, and looking at this drawing made us think that we were being invited to join them for a drink. Sadly, we have zero experience with a dream scenario like this, so our imaginations are limited in terms of what might happen next...
New costume design category
ユースティア
It was tough to choose a winner since there were so many amazing entries, but in the end, we based our decision on the character's costume design. This illustration was an unexpected departure from Justia's usual image without overdoing it on the sexy front, well-balanced and well-executed. It also gave off cute vibes, and was designed in a way that could appeal to a wide audience. We found ourselves returning to it over and over again. In many regards, we felt this was everything we could have wanted of an illustration of Justia in stockings.
Gold Medal (3 winners per category)
Cash prize: 200,000 JPY (approx. 1430 USD)
Additional prizes: a swag bag of BrownDust2 merch,
in-game items with a total value of 3000 diamonds
Character fan art category
海中嬉戏
While the winners of this contest are chosen in winter, this illustration fully transported us to summer days filled with sunny blue skies. Looking at it made us long to play with them and evoked many emotions.
We'd always thought it was a pity there wasn't an official illustration of Schera's (Scheherazade) back profile, and lo and behold, our prayers were answered! Thank you so, so much for this wonderful illustration and for making Schera even more stunning.
Character fan art category
*
This illustration is drawn really well, and we love the vibe it gives off. The coloring is also incredibly aesthetically pleasing, and we found ourselves spellbound for a while.
New costume design category
ユースティア 冬の踊り子
This was definitely one of the most eye-catching illustrations in this contest. The proportions are well-balanced and pleasing to the eye, and the vibe it gives off fits the theme perfectly. Overall, it is an incredibly well-designed piece.
New costume design category
クリスマスの泥棒猫
The quality is just unbelievable, and it's the perfect summation of Christmas cheer and Rou's adorableness. While coming up with this comment, we had to restrain ourselves from saying, "Aww, so cute!"
New costume design category
.
We liked how this illustration depicted Schera (Scheherazade), aka the poster girl for Brown Dust 2, in uniform, lending her an air of sophistication and cuteness. We took one look at it and felt instantly blessed.
Silver Medal (5 winners per category)
Cash prize: 100,000 JPY (approx. 714 USD)
Additional prizes: a swag bag of BrownDust2 merch,
in-game items with a total value of 3000 diamonds
Character fan art category
アリス
The minute we saw this illustration, we were immediately captivated by Glacia's expression and her cynical and cold air. This drawing unmistakably went above and beyond in expressing her charms.
Character fan art category
ルゥ
This drawing is incredibly cute and sweet, and the coloring is gorgeous too. Despite Rou looking a little more grown-up than she is now, none of her charms have been lost. How amazing is that?
The dynamics of the four main characters traveling together were depicted really well, and we liked how we could almost imagine the story behind the scene.
Character fan art category
LAYLA '▽'v
Adorable, simply adorable. So adorable, in fact, that we could feel our hearts pounding. If there was merch with this design, we would no doubt snap them up in a heartbeat. We also love the sleek hand-drawn style and could easily stare at it for hours. Work? Oh, right...
Character fan art category
Brown Dust 2!!
What makes this such a lovely illustration is the fact that not only is each character absolutely adorable, but their personalities really shine through as well.
New costume design category
Eclipse - Pool Party
As much as we would love to feature Eclipse dressed in something similar to this illustration in-game, it probably isn't feasible because, well, such is the nature of the world. This drawing perfectly illustrates our hidden desires, and we can feel the user's love for the character. The texture of her skin also looks highly realistic.
If we were to go by design alone, this was undeniably a personal favorite. The concept of characters in fantasy settings wearing modern clothing is always in high demand, and this illustration definitely satisfies that need.
New costume design category
【Winter city Edition】_Costume
This artwork features not just one, but three designs, each of them highly refined and sophisticated. Thank you for this lesson in stunning costume design.
Not only is the quality extremely high, but the fact that Justia is wearing a mini wedding dress absolutely deserves a chef's kiss! Due to the impeccable design, we can already see this illustration gaining popularity. She is simply adorable.
New costume design category
Teresse-Santa Girl
This has to be the perfect example of who Teresse is as a character: sweet and mature in looks yet unexpectedly provocative in style. We wish we could keep an eye on her from below the chimney, as we wouldn't want her to fall and hurt herself.
Bronze Medal (10 winners per category)
Cash prize: 50,000 JPY (approx. 335 USD)
Additional prizes: BrownDust 2 Merchandise(Mousepad,Keycap),
in-game items with a total value of 2000 diamonds
Character fan art category
VERSUS
What a thrilling and dynamic scene! You can practically feel that something is about to happen. We were really impressed by how well-drawn this was, and it could easily be one of the cut scenes in the story.
Character fan art category
断裁
We loved how expressive this drawing was, and it made us want to find out what happens next. We fully believe that Blood Glutton Justia will prevail and emerge victorious. You can do it, Justia!
Character fan art category
シンシア
When we saw this drawing, we went, "Wow, has Cynthia always been this beautiful...?" and we apologize for that. Thank you for reminding us that each and every character is very much loved by all of you.
Character fan art category
Nya!
We love how Rou looks like she's about to jump out of a comic panel, and it's amazing how much the single "Nya!" can convey in a word.
Character fan art category
ユースティア
The atmospheric lighting left an impression on us, and we also liked her nonchalant expression while eating, which we found to be very on-brand for Justia.
Character fan art category
dawn
A tried-and-true composition and lighting combo. Absolutely wonderful.
Character fan art category
안젤리카
The concept of a fighting nun was well executed in this piece. Angelica's expression, in particular, was the cherry on top of an already evocative drawing.
Character fan art category
無題
The background reminded us of a classical painting, and the vibe Lecliss exudes is one reminiscent of death. We were especially mesmerized by how the drawing seemed to hint at a dark past.
It's hard not to smile when the characters are enjoying themselves like this, and those fun vibes really shine through in this piece. If we didn't have to worry about our blood sugar levels, we would totally join them and help ourselves to some dessert too.
Character fan art category
Ocean
This, this is exactly what we were looking for. This is a great illustration of the desert sisters meeting at the beach, and we love it.
New costume design category
Diana - Bunny Onstage
Diana in a bunny girl costume—is that even allowed? The colors and accents really make the outfit, and the design is undoubtedly a classic crowd favorite.
New costume design category
Winter Postgirl Rou
We loved how artistic this piece was and how Rou's color palette and vibes made us think of night and space. In addition to being girlish, her design also felt inspired by Asian aesthetics, adding a mystical element to her look.
New costume design category
Scarlet Oath Angelica
We felt that this user definitely understood Angelica's charm. While it's true that she looks incredible in swimsuits, she looks equally amazing in combat outfits. Being able to pull off both is precisely what makes Angelica who she is.
While Liatris is a somewhat unhinged character in the story, we couldn't help thinking that perhaps if we went on a cute date and held hands, like this illustration suggests, we would see a different side of her that would make our hearts race!
New costume design category
パジャマ
We liked how the color scheme and design had an ethereal feel to them. While we got to see many different faces of Justia throughout this contest, we find simple and modest illustrations like this just as charming.
New costume design category
Christmas Angelica
We were taken aback by how this illustration was able to depict all of the following: that Angelica looks adorable no matter what she wears for Christmas, how cute she looks when she's surprised, and how gorgeous her legs are. It's not easy to show that Angelica can be charming no matter what she's doing!
"Ms. Eclipse, could you explain this problem to me?" "I'm so sorry, Ms. Eclipse. Please give me a suitable punishment!" ...Are we fantasizing, you ask? No, certainly not. That said, we might have had a few, ahem, "images" flash through our minds when we saw this illustration.
Looking at this dress with its beautiful blue accents made us feel as calm and pure as the bright blue sky.
New costume design category
典狱长グレイシア
Admittedly, there's a certain charm in seeing the young and cute Glacia depicted as a mischievous little devil. From this illustration, you can sort of get a sense of how the playing card soldiers might have come to serve and revere Glacia as their queen.
New costume design category
シェラザード
This outfit suits Schera (Scheherazade) so well that we wouldn't be surprised if it was part of her everyday wardrobe. Her expression and posture are also incredibly on-brand!
