Dev Team's Comment
Thank you for all the submissions for this contest! Every entry was so full of love for Atelier that it took us some time to select the winner...! Among them, we chose this one, which features all the main characters from the series. The memorial stamp-style design is also very moving and reminds us of the series' history. The entire development team will continue to work hard so that the Atelier series will continue to be enjoyed by everyone for a long time!
The warmth of each other that Sophie and Plachta feel on top of the book of the beginning is amazing...! I was moved and a little teary-eyed by the composition of the long journey and above all, the expressions on their faces. Although there are many words such as "friendship" and "affection," I believe that the feelings these two share for each other are unique and cannot be found in any dictionary. Thank you very much for your precious illustration!
To fit eleven people on one screen is a lot of work to begin with, yet each character's personality and characteristics are beautifully expressed in this illustration. I felt that this is a wonderful illustration that expresses love, and that is why I chose it! Thank you again for all the entries! I always have a hard time deciding which illustration to choose each time....
