Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice ► Prosthetic Art Challenge Announcement

    Runtime: 04:12

    ►Submit your designs to sekirochallenge@gmail.com
    ►Download the template here: drive.google.com/open?id=1jJoGEmNy5q9nYKmU-HLL5qPz5G102asf
    ►Rules: Come up with an original prosthetic arm attachment, design it, and tell us how it works..and you'll go into the running to get a piece of $1500usd, as well a portfolio shoutout on this channel.
    ►Thumbnail & Reference sheet by DevlinArt: devlinart
    Prize Distribution is as follows:
    1st - $400 + Portfolio Showcase
    2nd - $300 + Portfolio Showcase
    3rd - $200 + Portfolio Showcase
    4-10th - $100 + Artist Shoutout
    11th+ - Humble Bundle Monthly Keys + Artist linked in Description (and maybe in video)
    Submit your art (even if it's a draft) before February 22nd, and you'll be eligible for a Mystery Prize.
    The final deadline is March 8th. I will be fairly strict with this date, but may allow some leeway on a case-by-case basis.
    To assist your design, and to help with consistency..we've designed a template that I recommend you follow. It features an official piece of reference art, a space below for you to describe your weapon..and three angles of the arm that I recommend you draw over. Now..while it's mandatory that you try to fill out the written section below..nothing else here is. If you want to draw over one of these arm templates, that's fine. If you want to use all three arm angles - go for it! If you really want to, feel free to ignore these arm angles completely, and start from scratch. Imagine you were designing something for From Software's animation and gameplay team. All I want is to understand your design, and how it functions.
    Speaking of function, let's go over the written section. If I was describing a weapon called the Loaded Axe prosthetic, I would say it's a weapon designed to crush your enemies' defenses. Its R2 performs a vertical smash attack..and its follow-up performs a double-bladed slice including the katana. Most follow-up attacks seem to use the katana in some way.
    And finally..you can be as realistic or outlandish with your design as you want. Some of you might design a bow prosthetic..and some of you might decide to strap the Moonlight Greatsword to Sekiro's arm. From Software have always been realistic and ridiculous at the same time. You can be too.
    Again, entries close exactly one month from now, on the 8th of March. Please submit your entries to sekirochallenge@gmail.com. Make sure you include your artist portfolio, social media, and PayPal address..in case you win. Considering there's quite a lot of prizes, please don't feel discouraged from entering. You'd be surprised at how few people do, and we all appreciate your art. If you have any questions, or wish to submit a draft within 2 weeks to be eligible for the mystery prize..please, go for it.
    Good luck..and hey, remember the game's tagline: kill ingeniously.

A lot of people asking "Can I submit more than one weapon design"? I think it's best to submit one type of weapon design per person. This helps to ensure it's your best design, and that the winner isn't someone who overwhelmed the challenge with ideas (even though that's awesomely talented of you). That said, feel free to submit your alternate ideas. This allows you to express those ideas, and I MAY feature them. Just be clear which one is your "main" idea to be judged for the competition.

VAATI. I HAVE A THEORY FOR YOU. PLEASE SEE MY COMMENT AND NOTICE IT I BEG OF YOU. The dark soul is in the blood,yes? What if the thing in bloodborne that is turning people into beasts is in fact some what related to the abyss or the dark soul? We saw what it did to Gael! Turning him into nothing more then a beast hunting for the dark soul! Please see my comment....

I have one question- I sended my early submission, but now, when I slowly approach final stages of work, I added more angles, some things to weapon concept and mechanism, so even thought the general theme of weapon didn't changed, it certainly shows some little design changes and updates. So the question is, If I send this updated version, it will disqualifay my entry, or I worry to much? I know it may by stupid question, but I'm stupid man with lot of stupid ideas :P

I know this is late (I was about to enter the competition for Sekiro but unfortunately, UNI stuff starts early) but I was wondering if a prosthetic arm can switch to a matchlock or the tanagashima shotgun. Since it's a combination of both historic and fiction. Since Sekiro has taken place during the Sengoku Period (from 15th to 17th century), the matchlock weaponary (Mostly rifles, not sure about pistols though) had been introduced by the Portuguese around the 1500s, mostly by trading. Thus created the name 'Tanegashima' rifle, named after the island called Tanegashima. Most of you had seen enemies armed the Tanegashima while watching gameplay footages or playing the demos. The gun is also around the Edo Period, but Sekiro is around the Sengoku Period so I'm not sure whether it's in the late Sengoku or the mid. As the for the fictional part. The shotgun. They haven't existed or made til the 1800s, but since Sekiro has a fictional weapon called the flame cannon (whatever it's called) which obviously sets enemies on fire within a large radius, a shotgun can have potential as a crowd control weapon, though they're three things that I find to be a problem. 1. It'll be Bloodborne all over again as players will just use the shotgun almost constantly, even though it does some damage. 2. The gameplay style of Sekiro is a sword based combat which means it encourages us to go personal with our enemies and clash blades with as we time the parry and strike, or use stealth, not the 'taking the gun to the sword fight' thing. Even though there's flamethrower like cannon in it. 3. Even though it's support utility weapon, it's very unlikely developers of Sekiro would implement such weapon as the shinobi would rather not carry a firearm, as it would probably be cumbersome and pointless since the firearms would diminish their stealth tactics due to noise it makes upon using it It's just my theory so who knows. If the developers wanted to implement such idea, they would probably go for the rifle or pistol design with an option to change ammunition type. But that's their choice.

STANDO attachment: The prosthetic arm splits in a horizontal line, adjacent to the arm itself, creating two new arms, capable of punching enemies extremely fast, packing a lot of power with each punch. R2: the prosthetic arm activates, attacking the front of the character continuously for 3 seconds. The character can walk forward, but not backward nor turn or jump. You can't cancel it until 2 seconds have passed - to cancel, just tap the block or attack button. Being hit will cancel it at any time. R2+R1: the character does a spinning punch with the prosthetic arm, launching the enemy forward.
