Introducing our version of Shadow Souji! >8DD

The one on the left belongs to :iconotaku-hime95:
His full concept, symbolism & explanations can be found here in Hime-chan's deviation --> [link]
This Shadow also had a major role in her fanfic.
It had a cool concept, so be sure to check it out~ ;) --> [link]

The one on the right is my version ^^
Concept & symbolism explanations here:

Representation: Hidden wishes

There's something that you wanted so much.
Day and night you secretly wished for it, all the time knowing that you can't have it.
From fear that everyone would laugh at you, you keep those wishes hidden and buried inside, never voiced out.
After awhile, you started losing your mind from it.

...Grant my wishes...

- Ready to do just about anything to get what he wants.
- Usually found continuously making white paper cranes.

- paper cranes = hopes to make wishes come true
- has a traditional, shrine-like dungeon (shrines are one of the most common places where people go to to make wishes)

- I mainly stick to Izanagi's design elements :3
- following the symbolism, stuff are made to look traditional, added with shrine ropes & bells on the naginata.

Extra note:
Since I actually have 2 more versions of Shadow Souji, I give each one of them a different name for the sake of differentiation / so they don't get mixed up >_>"
Just for reference, the one here is called Tsuruji (鶴寺) :meow:
鶴 (tsuru) --> crane
寺 (ji) --> temple

I would like to see what might be a 'true' Shadow form?

Maybe a huge bancho monster with a warped izanagi mask combined with the bells and shine symbolism. Like to show wanting to power to get whatever he wants.

I just realised that your shadow Souji has a kinda-sorta similar outfit to the cheer squad outfit in P4 Golden...

The fanfiction can't be found. Is there another place that I can read it or is there something I'm doing wrong?

Whoa, sorry >A<
The writer deleted the fanfiction because she planned to rewrite it.
Not sure whether she had plans to continue that rewritten version, though T___T

Thanks for your interest ;w;

What is Tsuruji's wish?
DAVE37 Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2012
does he have the ability change personas too? maybe like Shadow Yosuke, Shadow Chie, Shadow Yukiko, Shadow Kanji, Shadow Rise, Shadow Teddie, Shadow Naoto and Shadow Labrys?

Oh, this is a wonderful concept! I've read a couple fanfic on that had Shadow!Souji, but were never thought out this well! I love the idea that Souji has wishes of his own, but since he's the protag, he's not allowed to fufill them. And the art itself is amazing too <3
