●Comment from “Atelier series” development team
First, we want to thank the fans for their participation.
We can really feel the love of “Atelier series” from each artwork. They are so touching!
We finally came out the one involving both Nelke and other legendary alchemists, which vividly shows a beautiful Atelier world and makes us even want to pay a visit to such place!
We are looking forward to your support for the Atelier series in the future.
Mel Kishida Award
●Comment from Mel Kishida
Wow! That looks exactly like my style! How Amazing! Come work with me!
Just kidding. But really, the point is, I can feel the sense of Arland very much and even more refined details. The poses look also pretty girlish which is really good!
More than anything, Lulua has been just announced days ago, but you’ve gotten her in your artwork already? I’m impressed!
By the way, I haven’t even drawn those 4 alchemists together yet myself!
NOCO Award
●Comment from NOCO
All the artworks are full of love and energy. It was really difficult to pick one from them.
Finally, I came up with the one which impresses me with its proficient drawing skill and adorable style. It's so cute!
