Phantom Detectives by VerminFu Phantom Detectives by VerminFu
This took me so long!

First thing's first. If you have no idea what the subject of this picture is: Please watch this friendly customer service announcement!

Ghost Trick is easily one of my very favourite games. If you haven't heard of it, think Ace Attorney but with a much more condensed story and more amazing art.

I have been working on this image for hell knows how long because I had to make sure I did it justice. I love everything about that game and I needed to Good Art to prove it.

EDIT: Well, that was unexpected. Thanks for my first DD! (Yes I see who suggested it too!)

Fantastic! I love the colors and the composition, and you couldn't have picked a better game to draw for, really.

You know, I feel much the same. This is definitely the subject matter I would have picked to get a DD given the choice. I guess doing one of my rare high-effort fanarts as a Ghost Trick fanart was a good plan, yep!

And I'm glad you like it, it does make me pretty happy to know others get pleasure from my hobby!

Just wow! I love it! You captured the elements of the game really well. I can't imagine how long this took to make. I really loved this game. My only gripe about the game was the short involvement of those two henchman (that girl who claims she's psychic and the blond blue guy). Other than that, I loved this game.

I for one have loved the game for well over a year. It's not the first time I've done Ghost Trick fanart and certainly won't be the last! I'm always pestering people to play it if I find out they haven't, heh!

Oh my god! Thank you soooo much for drawing this, you actually made my day. I won't go on about how much I liked the game.

I love the colours you chose and how you managed to make the characters look the same but added your own unique style to the whole thing, and you did such a great job adding all of the most important characters in there! That giant eggtimer is the best lol

Thank you! I draw these things for my own enjoyment, but it makes me happy when other people get a kick out of them too.

And thanks for the style comments too. I'm not a big fan of carbon-copying a style; I reckon the best fanart always has its own unique character. I'm not even content that I have managed that perfectly here, but that's what I aim for and practice always equals improvement after all!

Sleyf Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
That's what it's all about really isn't it lol.

I agree with you about style, it's alright to draw iconic characters so they're recognizable, but adding your own little touches and style to them is what makes great fan art stand out from the rest. I mean what use is appreciating something and drawing it, only to have it vanish into the carbon copy masses and be indistinguishable from the rest? I actually think you did the game and characters justice with your work and congratulations again on the DD, it was great to see your work there!

... Oh my god.
The second I saw this in the Daily Deviations section, I almost freaked out, I was so excited. More so than a wound-up Missile, I dare say.

This. Freaking. Game. I can't believe I hadn't got my hands on it until about two weeks ago, and I am so glad I did.
