Well Professor I'm Stumped by Ry-Spirit Well Professor I'm Stumped by Ry-Spirit
Got into my Professor Layton hype again after playing Ace Attorney Duel Destiny, wait what?! LOL yes I know, sometimes I play something and then start hyping for somethng totally different. WELL not completely different, I mean Ace Attorney and Layton did have a crossover. But yes Ry is strange like that. I remember one time I was watching Batman and suddenly had the urge to look up Benedict Cumberbatch cos Batman reminded me of Sherlock Holmes. ANYWAYS. I hope you guys like this fan art, I put a lot of extra time into this to make it as good as possible, I also made the effort to take shots of various stages in the drawing and will upload a tutorial page to show how this artwork was done, havent done one of those tutorial for ages ^^ So look forward to that. But yes in this artwork I wanted to put Luke as the main focus, as you can see he is playing a Layton 3DS XL (It is not a real thing by the way, I wish), and he seems to be stumped! Lucky for him Flora seems to have figured it out, smart girl. I also want Layton in the artwork but less of a focus, so there you can see him in the background reading a book, who knows what he is reading. Also Im a big fan of the animals in the game, I especially like the robot dog and hamster and the parrot as you can probably tell, they are so adorable and HELPFUL in the games. Speaking of which, do you wanna know which Layton game is my favourite? I love Professor Layton and the Unwound Future, because I am a big fan of time travel, and also this is the Layton game that has actually made me cry, probably the ONLY game that has made me cry ever, the ending.. omg all the feels. So yes there you go, also wanna say thanks to my friend =S-bro for helping me come up with a good name for this piece, Im not the best with coming up with names as you probably already know. THAT IS ALL! Look forward to the tutorial! And if you have read all this then I just wanna applaud you for doing so, I dunno why you even bother reading this massive amount of text! I am actually half trolling and seeing if anyone actually reads this, yes this is in fact a test, testing your patience, an experiment, for my own amusement. OR maybe this itself is a puzzle, why not? You guys like puzzles? Here's a puzzle. And by answering in the comments below I would have seen that you HAVE indeed read all these text, and as an appreciation for your patience, I will come by your page and give you a llama or something ^^, you dont even have to answer it correctly, but if you can then good job you. OK here's the puzzle: "What has a face and two hands but no arms or legs?" YUP! Good luck you smart Ryceballs.

A clock! Anyone who didn't read the whole artist comments but scrolled through the comments is probably super confused right now. Luke's face in this is adorable! I really like the arrangement.

This is an amaxing piece! I love how you included all the different "extras" (robot dog, partot, hamster) and the style... <3

Also, I'd say a smiley doing jazzhands ^^ or one of those poster-thingys they put on the fences of construction sites with those guys holding up there hands shouting "no entry beyobd this point!!!!"... but I'm probably really far off XD
