Man.. Oh MY, The Hand of the Rising Sun is stunningly gorgeous. What a beautiful piece of artwork whose beauty is only matched by its deadliness. I love, absolutely LOVE the visuals on that perfect, singular page describing the weapon and all it entails with a centerfold drawing that is simply majestic. Everything on that page adheres perfectly with every other part, and all those parts tie together with such natural fluidity and flow. Each part of the page, both descriptive and visual, adds so much without ever sacrificing an ounce of the cohesiveness. And the depiction of the sky lantern, at its peak height, in the center so perfectly encapsulates the creativity and how truly awe-inspiring this project is. This central visual went above and beyond the core purpose of visualizing the weapon and how it would be used; but this visual is truly a successful piece of storytelling with such attention to detail that you can understand the emotions and the fear that the enemy soldiers are feeling at that moment, and in that picture I feel the artist truly captured the essence of the entire game of Sekiro and took it even further with a weapon so unbelievably beautiful yet deadly, awe-inspiring yet also inducing a sense of dread for the confused soldiers blinded by a weapon so complex and fleshed out that they will likely be dead within seconds of the scene at hand. Not to mention the immaculate attention to detail that helped flesh out the believability of the weapon and establish its presence in the world of Sekiro. Looking at this image brings me back to the enthralling opening cutscene to Sekiro. I feel drawn in and heavily invested instantly by this portrait, akin to the grippingly powerful hold the game itself had on me. Every choice for this page is masterful, from visual perspective, to setting portrayal and the narrative weight given to the weapon. It truly invokes the sense of awe that playing Sekiro for the first time also invoked within me. And with Sekiro being one of my all-time favorite video games, that is a truly difficult fear to accomplish. But there is one visual choice that I truly love above all others in this picture; a choice which commands innate respect for how effectively it was executed & portrayed. And it affected me instantly from a subconscious level, drawing me into the painting on first glance and holding me there as it truly invested me in the world it built. That choice was too place the perspective of the painting at roughly the same eye level as one of the enemy soldiers that Sekiro is descending upon. It instantly directs your brain to struggle and try decipher the confusing situation that you are in with the perspective of an enemy soldier. Those soldiers do not have a fold out page detailing the complex and nuanced, yet well developed and coherent design of The Hand of the Rising Sun. They had just been attacked, and within a split second of that initial attack they were already being blinded from above by a Giant-Floating-Lantern-wielding Shinobi. Upon first viewing this portrait, I felt as though I were in the shoes of a third enemy soldier trying to prepare for an incoming attack like no other. And while my compatriots and I desperately tried to see through the blinding light and prepare for the Shinobi descending upon us from above, I can feel the speed and deadliness of the danger at hand. My vision begins to restore for a split second as one of my comrades is plucked from the sky and killed by the Shinobi. My sight returns just long enough to meet the gaze of my equally perplexed gaze. The Shinobi redraws his Lantern as quickly as he withdrew it to kill my ally, and he reaffixes the blinding light upon us as the reality of how grave our situation is sets in. Like a Hawk, or an Owl, masterfully plucking its confused, unprepared prey out of existence, my only other friend and ally is stripped of his mortal coil. We never stood a chance, and I truly feel BOTH the dread of the soldiers AND the unmatched prowess & deadly might of the Wolf Shinobi and his Hand of the Rising Sun. Absolute art. Absolute mastery. Absolute awe-wrenching beauty.

This is autism. Dude, you're bitching about the realism of a fucking fully functioning prosthetic arm created in ancient Japan that has dexterity functionality that can't even be replicated by state of the art engineering today. Why is this even being done? For 'portfolio shoutouts' and a couple hundred bucks? From Software isn't going to hire any of these guys and they're sure as shit not going to incorporate any of this stuff. Such a waste of time and talent.

I would have loved to see something that would pin the enemy to the ground. Like, after deflecting, you could fill a small bar that when filled, you could preform a small attack in which you shoot a sort of rod into the enemies foot, pinning them to the ground and allowing for you to hit them multiple times before they can recover. To balance this, the enemy could counter with a devastating attack that you have to dodge out of the way once they are out of the pin.

Just imagined tool like "Dogeon's batteries of lightning" that helps you unleash "Lightning of the Tomoe" while in mid-air or fill your sword with sparkles if standing on the ground which gives you chance to shock enemies after attack

I like the trail blazer as I thought of upgrading it with a special moveset as the same as the longspark firecrakers when upgraded instead its starts with the sparks of the katana as it goes on it follows with a spin of oil igniting it around sekiro which could do fire damage is the enemies are too close but is near instead of fire damage they would sweat which distracts the enemie and lack of focus which another idea is that you can make a pillar of fire infront of an enemie which prevents it from attacking as the oil ignites it will try to take the shape of a pillar as the oil gets thrown up in the air

One problem with the Hand of the Rising Sun is that you can kind of just insta kill bosses, unless it doesn’t affect them. And it removes the challenge from tough field enemies.

All of this just makes me wish FromSoft would’ve given us DLC and a few new areas for the game, possibly armor and a few extra prosthetics as well. I think FromSoft did such a good job with a Shinobi game and they should’ve kept going with ancient Japan themed games. Hopefully we’ll see more in the future 💯🦾

I love the concept of the mechanics of the Hand of the Rising Sun, but I gotta point out two things as an Asian person passing by: 1. The idea of the Rising Sun did not exist in Japan in the Sengoku (warring states) era, which Sekiro is set in. 2. The Rising Sun symbolism is mainly associated with imperialist / WWII era Japan, and is offensive to nations who were victims of Japanese imperialism/aggression.

Wow, amazing art. I'm a little late to the party, but my favorite work is probably the locust hive, at least the idea of it. There are so many possibilities to actually include that into the game in retrospect. For example it is one of very few that I can see having some kind of a special effect on a boss or at least a few mini bosses by stunning or distracting them, similar to the effect fire has on the guardian ape. It could also be a means of evading a fight by distracting a group of enemies. Furthermore it fits perfectly into the prosthetics upgrade system in Sekiro. I could imagine a trap upgrade (leaving a stain of pheromones or some kind of odor for the insects to linger around somewhere in the path of an enemy), a different type of insects (bees, maybe, while using their honey as a byproduct to slow down enemies), an upgrade that makes the insects swarm around and protect you (being active constantly for a limited amount of time) and so on. And lore would be easy to include, after all utilizing insects as weapons or traps isn't too far fetched to believe that the tool could've been used by a neighboring tribe or something along those lines. But that's not to say the rest wasn't really good, in fact I'm baffled by the quality and variety of ideas people came up with and how much work they put into it. Great contest, really!
