Am I even allowed to do this?

Prinny Laharl is a combination of overlord Laharl of Disgaea fame and a prinny of Nippon Ichi Software fame.

He's a character that shows up in the game Prinny: Can I Really be the Hero? for the PSP. Well, He's more of a boss than a character. And I think he's an optional boss.

From this you may be able to tell that I have not actually played the game. In fact, I do not even own a PSP. This is why I asked if I am allowed to draw fan art of a character from a game I have never played.

I decided to make this because a) prinnies are awesome, and b) Laharl is awesome (I have played Disgaea 1, but I haven't actually beaten it yet... >.>;; ). I also decided that trying to draw a picture of just Laharl would be difficult (although, in the end, maybe not that difficult), and I couldn't incorporate Laharl and prinnies in a picture that would a) not have massive amounts of violence, b) keep me sane and c) not take forever to not actually ever finish.

Of the weapons he holds, one is one of the two knives that Prinny Laharl wields, and one of them is a sword from Disgaea that I decided was awesome.

In conclusion, this is some nice fan art to throw out there before I try to fail at actually drawing something original.

Edit [22.12.09]: hmmm. It seems that this has become far and away the most popular drawing that I have ever submitted to deviantart. It's funny, since I initially drew it for a friend as a going away present (he ended up getting a special updated version that you will never see) before I realized that Disgaea is actually a pretty popular game/series (which is why I am no longer surprised that this drawing is "popular" (please forgive my antiquated, attention-deprived definition of the word "popular")). In the other news, I have now officially played Prinny: Can I Really be the Hero, seeing as how I bought myself a PSP [last week] (I got it so I could play Tales of VS. as well as P:CIRbtH). I then found out that the game is so frustratingly difficult more because of the jumping mechanics (you can't change direction whatsoever in midair, something that the platformer genre has not prepared me for). I also have copies of Disgaea 1 and 2 for my PS2, but I doubt that I'll ever get around to actually beating them, seeing as how little time any video games have gotten from me lately (don't worry, I'm not actually spending my time doing anything useful, video games have simply faded from my primary time wasting syndicate).

This was longer than I expected it to be.

You caught me. There's actually a Good Reason™ for why this picture happens to be inaccurate in this respect.

Back when I was drawing it, I happened to Borrow Heavily® from Prinny:CIRbtH's spritesheets, which have (for one reason or another) no eye detail whatsoever.

(if you look hard enough, you can see the pose that I referenced copied blatantly).
