We make the online game Mecha Galaxy (apps.facebook.com/mechagalaxy)
We need two portraits of some villains, asap.
Here is what the images will be paired with:
Taunts #2 - Prince of Iron
Attention pilots of the mercenary clans. I am the Prince of Iron and rightful heir to the Meiji Shogunate. As I speak to you an usurper has claimed for himself a portion of the empire. I go to take it back and return harmony to the Shogunate and I do not require your assistance nor do I desire it. However, my father, the Emperor has commanded me to seek all aid no matter its appearance.
Here then, is my decree. If you think yourself skilled enough to hold your place among the elite forces of the mighty Shogunate forces. If you have the arrogance to style your foreign self to be worthy of a place in the ranks of my army, you may submit yourself for training and testing. Some pride may be forgiven if there is honor and a true warrior's heart behind it, but do not assume you are an equal to even the lowliest of my troopers. You are merely a sell-sword. If you can earn a place within my forces perhaps a small reward may be found for the beggars at the door. Perhaps you may even be ranked as high as a trained hound and be given a bone from the table scraps of my true warriors. Do not presume too much or you will be put down like a rabid mongrel without a second thought.
My father has commanded me to welcome you into his Empire and I, the dutiful son have done so. But be warned, you money-grubbing fools will not be treated as guests forever. You may serve my brother or you may serve me, choose now. Just know this - if you oppose me you will be crushed under the foot of the mighty Shogunate Army.
Taunt 3 – Prince of Flowers
When you return to base after a long mission there is a message waiting for you.
Greetings fellow pilot. I, or should I say we, the Meiji Shogunate have great need of your services. I am saddened to inform you that troubled times now plague our great Empire. There is a traitor in our midst who has mislead many of our fine soldiers with fabrications and false promises of riches. Now our citizens struggle and toil beneath the the yoke of a despot.
I have come to you to retain your services. The service of a soldier for hire. Many times in our glorious history have Ronin, masterless warriors if you will, come to the aid of the Empire. I am recruiting an elite force, who like the Ronin of times past, strike at the head of the serpent and vanquish it. I would save my, our, citizens more unnecessary suffering if possible. Rather than a long campaign of brutal conquest, we Ronin will exact our retribution from the usurper himself. He thinks himself safe behind his walls and bodyguards. Already he becomes complacent and lazy, thinking no one can challenge him while he cowers behind his army. We shall make him pay for the injustice he has inflicted upon my, on our, people.
The mission will be dangerous, but no more so than any other and I will share the risk at your side. It will be difficult, but what is difficulty to the skilled warrior? And yes, there will be payment. It will be rewarding. Honor and glory to those who seek justice for the oppressed. The eternal gratitude of a mighty people. Perhaps a new home for those who wander the galaxy. For those who desire nothing more than coin, there will be payment in kind. I cannot promise you the bounty of a king, but payment shall be made.
Join me. You may discover you have found that which you did not know you were seeking.
Prince of Flowers
Each image should be 300 x 300, png or jpg. Full color. Because of their background, we'd like these princes to be Japanese. For the style, we do not want an anime style for it, but instead something more realistic.
