Adventurer Cupcakee brings to this Months BDO Monthly a compilation of delightful screenshots with a beautiful short story! This bittersweet story tells about two sisters missing their old peaceful days!
Adventurer Cupcakee also brings us a crimson, fierce and classic Roselyn screenshot session! The dyes combined with the crimson roses in O'dyllita makes it an harmonic composition that marvelled us! Can you guess the spot where Cupcakee took these pictures?
Adventurer Mirnakova returns to BDO Monthly with a intriguing screenshot session, where the protagonist looks like plotting something! We loved the details and how the character blends into the Land of the Morning Light theme! Mirnakova, wait for us becasuse we are also going to... Seoul!


We welcome Adventurer Joximus to BDO Monthly with their portrait of their Corsair! We were amazed at the harmony of the colours and the beauty of Corsair, as well as Joximus amazing artistic skills! We couldn't move on to the next drawing without noticing that the Ellen Glasses acessory and the Blanchard Set match perfectly! 
We welcome back Adventurer CalhounFirenight to BDO Monthly with an amazing painting (yes you heard it right) of the Dragon King from the Sea Palace! We loved to see the progress images from the sketching to the creation of the emboss process that made the painting come to life! We hope the Dragon King doesn't acquire a taste for Cron Stones, otherwise the Black Spirit will be devastated!
Adventurer Shurei debuts in BDO Monthly with their Dark Knight resting after a long day! We loved the colours and tiny highlights on the hair, making it look like a starry night! And of course, we couldn't help but notice the cute kitten resting on the back! +1 point for extra cuteness!
Adventurer EruScarlet comes back to BDO Monthly with their favourite Archer! But this time - make it chibi! With a private music session to a papu & otter, EruScarlet is literally rocking the Primavera Outfit! We couldn't to notice help how cute the Archer is in this style! What instrument would you like EruScarlet's Archer to play next?
