Epic. That is what we call this project among ourselves. And this is truly an epic when you consider how much time, effort and research went into its making. Message2god is one of the hermit artist within us who knows and loves his touhou. His previous doujin with us was Tenshi’s Festival of Friends. Since then, this masterpiece has been in the makings for two years and we are proud to present his latest work: Lotus Destiny
#CDS0023: Lotus Destiny
Lotus Destiny tells the epic story of Byakuren Hijiri, the stage 6 boss of Undefined Fantastic Object. The story starts when Byakuren was young when she got to learn about Western black magic and started to see youkais up to her ultimate fate at the very end. Experience Byakuren’s life as she travels the land searching for her brother, fighting youkais, learning about Buddhism and growing as a character. Each episode of her eventful life is painstakingly researched and brought to life under M2G’s ink and paper, a magnificent feat that no one else within us will ever accomplish.

Don’t let that Chinese scare you away. There will also be an English version for those Anglophiles out there and we are also considering a Japanese version as well. As there will only be very limited quantities, better get it when you see it otherwise you might not see another copy on sale again… (I mean it. There will probably be less than 10 copies per language in circulation and most of us within CDS are already preparing our wallets.)

So one often read about art theft. It’s not something new and on our part, we had our fair share of it. While doing my research for this, I tried to access some of the old links containing instances when our art was stolen. Unfortunately, those links seem to be down. So what we have are here: Someone trying to sell T-shirts based on ours (and Daiyaku’s) artwork and another person trying to pass off Haimerejzero’s artwork for his own.
Art theft is a sticky topic and I suspect what I will say will be relatively shallow. But let’s try to establish a proper CDS stance on this nasty topic, ya?
