    I’ve been meaning to draw Annabelle & Amarant together for the last year or so, but never quite got around to it until now. 

    Amarant is from Ximsol182s RPGM Horror, Claroscuro! The demo is currently out; I recommend giving it a play!

    OOOMG THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR DRAWING AMARANT IN YOUR STYLE! Those two troublemakers look absolutely adorable~ 

    Please check Veynn’s projects as well~  °˖✧◝(⁰▿⁰)◜✧˖°

    🌺🌺🌺 qvq/ Please

    Alright Z~ ^^

    🌺 Nika is very attached to his mother, to the point Amarant mocks him for it. If you click the grave outside his house more than 3 times you’ll understand why….

    🌺 Claroscuro is the first story of a project called “The Unlucky Children Trilogy” and they’re all are connected somehow. Claroscuro takes place in 1821. Expiatora happens on 2012 and lastly Petricor, which happens on 1720. The last two take place in Peru.

    🌺 As I said before, there are four realms in the game, the first being the mine. Here’s a preview of the second realm!

    🌺🌺🌺 hmu

    Alright, Biel~ \(≧▽≦)/

    🌺 Claroscuro actually has 3 points of view. The main game, from Nika’s perspective, a bonus chapter from the perspective of….a rather spoilery character, and a comic in 4-koma format from Amarant’s point of view.

    🌺 Yup, I’m planning to release a 4-koma after publishing the full Claroscuro game. It has a more comedic vibe cause, well…it’s Amarant.

    🌺 There are 3 main characters, Nika, Amarant and the spoilery character. Their names are connected to the story but they’re kinda ironic too. For example, Nikanor means “victory” and Amarant means “everlasting”…..Make of it what you want.

    Claroscuro (RPG Maker Horror) - 2nd Demo | Flare Let's Play:

    Welcome to the extended demo of Claroscuro, a fantasy horror game made in RPG Maker VX Ace by @ximsol182, we play as Nikanor, a boy who woke up from the bottom of the cliffs with no recollection of how he got there. What awaits next?

    “The year is 1821. Nikanor finds himself at the bottom of a cliff and no memory of how he ended up there. Also his mother is nowhere to be seen and his house is not quite how he remembers it. Confused and determined to be reunited with his disappeared mother, Nikanor is forced to venture through the nonsensical places inside his house. Will things ever go back to how they used to be?”

    The year is 1821. Nikanor finds himself at the bottom of a cliff and no memory of how he ended up there. Also his mother is nowhere to be seen and his house is not quite how he remembers it. Confused and determined to be reunited with his disappeared mother, Nikanor is forced to venture through the ethereal dreamscapes inside his house.

    Will things ever go back to how they used to be?

    Alright, the final demo is here. Instead of the same demo with bug fixes or new portraits, I’ve extended it with more content to make it more interesting. More maps, more puzzles and more Amarant being annoying!

    NOTE: Gameplay is not exactly final, and many things are due to change
