Dream Splash I - Zeal [2007] / Re: Schala Painting

At first I thought that too, but she's gotta wear something under those robes, right? ...or DOES SHE!?!?

Heh.  That was not my exact train of thought, though now that you mention it...   :D

Anyways, pretty awesome pic. I never knew that's who your avy was supposed to be...the hair seems a bit more blue than the Zealian's hair hue...

Thank you.  And yes, it is quite blue, isn't it?  I wondered about it myself when I was creating it, wondering if it would be too much so.  However, I think it stands out so much because the rest of the picture is so devoid of color.  I was trying to go for a life-like look in this picture, though you're right, her hair is probably much too blue for that...

But I can't help it.  I like blue.  :)

Character Design - She's very pretty, but her design is rather simple.

Combat Usefulness - Um.  Not very useful.  I didn't really dig the spatulas for weapons.  If you're starting on a brand new game in CC, she's useful on Mt. Pyre cause she's a blue innate.  That's about it, really...

Tilt Factor - Don't like her, I usually never recruit her.  Another's Leena seems to be rather sweet, but Home Leena is annoying, bitchy, and whiny to boot.

Final Grade - D

I really liked the story!  :)  The concept is brilliant, illustrating the early days of Zeal and how little they thought of the Earthbound.

I'll just vote A, and your B can be my vote.

Word.  Thanks!  :)

Did you forget to vote?

I accidentally voted B, and I don't know how to change it.  :(

It said clearly that Kid was Schala's "Daughter-clone".
But it also said that in her last ditch effort to save herself, or at least her sanity (which would be her good side before Lavos dominates her), she sent out Kid. So if that were true, then to have Kid would be meaning to saver her O_o

Well, not necessarily.  In real life, good people can be consumed by hatred, rage, insanity, ect., without having to split the good part of their soul from their evil side.  Schala didn't have to split in two for her to become filled with Lavos' hatred and rage.  She just simply became consumed and overpowered with it, and became evil (and a part of Lavos).  Though whether she actually did split herself or not is anyone's guess, because the Chrono world is obviously not like real life.  :)

It's very possible that this is what happened in Cross--that Schala tried to go to Serge, and ended up rending herself in two, the sane half becoming Kid.  I personally hold that Schala cloned Kid and sent her to Lucca with her pendant.  Having briefly met Lucca in Zeal (presumably), Schala would have known that Lucca was an intelligent woman who might know what to do to save her, and perhaps sending a clone of herself was the only message she could compose in her compromised state.  I personally believe that Schala and Kid are still two separate people.

Now this is just my humble opinion.  I have absolutely no problem with anyone believing that Kid and Schala are the same person, or combine at the end of Cross (in fact, isn't that the case in Radical Dreamers?  I'm not sure, but I believe that I heard that in RD Kid IS Schala).  The ending of Cross is ambiguous enough that there's room for either interpretation. 

Wow, sorry for getting off topic.  *shrug*  I wish we could find someone that reads/writes good Japanese, and we could just ask Kato what his intentions were...   *sigh*

Design: Hmm...She's a tiny Ayla, complete with a necklace that looks suspiciously like the astral amulet (but how could it be?)  Since she's presumably from prehistoric times, maybe it's a plain Dreamstone pendant.  *shrugs*  She has a cute little tail, bright green eyes, and a brilliant grin.  I kind of squee a little when I see her.  I think she's just so darn adorable.

Combat:  Wow.  I mean, WOW.  She may be cute and cuddly looking, but do not tick her off.  Just like Ayla in CT, she's a beast when it comes to brute strength and power.  Physically speaking, she owns.

Tilt: The game didn't spend enough time discussing her various possibilities, but hinted at something huge.  She speaks of "land-anger" and then she was separated from her village, but there's no other village in Gaia's Navel.  Then at the end of the game, she up and says she'll name her daughter "Ayla."  Perhaps she is Ayla's mother, and perhaps she's not.  There is a theory on this site somewhere talking about how she might just be the key to the Reptite dimension.  If she is removed from time, and then Ayla is never born, the Reptites win and humanity loses, thus eventually giving rise to Dinopolis. 

She had a lot of possibilities that the game never dealt with.  But despite its silence on her character, her potential makes her a memorable character to me.  Though many may not agree with me, I give her a grade of A.

Final Grade: A

Incredible.  Absolutely exquisite writing and characterization.   :)

Definitely. I'd wondered about the avatar for a while now. It's quite the sapphire jewel with which to adorn the crown of our Dream Splash!...

Thank you, ZeaLitY!  That means a lot to me coming from you.   :)

its really good, but i think it would be better if you actually had her in Schala's outfit, and not just a white shirt.

Thank you.  :)  I did originally plan to do it in her Zeal outfit, ponytail and all.  But as I started, there was too much color in the picture and it felt too busy.  I wanted something simple, and I felt that her Zeal outfit made the picture something didn't capture the essence of her character.  Simplifying the colors and putting her in white, while subduing all the other colors seemed to make a more striking image, and captured her spirit (in my opinion, anyway).  While one could argue that the Zeal outfit is part of Schala's identity, I wanted the picture to be about her, not her kingdom.

This doesn't mean I won't do a picture of her in her Zeal outfit in the future.  :)

There are many things about the picture that I don't like.  Her eyes are a little to olive green for my liking, and there are places where the blue in her hair smudged onto her skin. 

*sigh*  I'll fix it someday, when I have more time.

Wow. Simply amazing!

You should do some more of this artwork for the rest of the Chrono Trigger cast, especially the various people in Zeal.

And some Chrono Cross peeps too, like Kid.

Wow, thanks!  :)  I've actually planned to do a picture of Glenn from Cross, and probably Kid too.  It took me a very long time to do this one, though, so it'll be a little while till I get around to it.

Dream Splash I - Zeal [2007] / Schala Painting
« on: August 26, 2007, 04:20:22 am »
This is a digital painting of Schala I did about a year ago.  I used a model for reference (cause I'm not that good at art), but I ended up tweaking the face so it doesn't really look like the reference at all.  She looks just like I imagined Schala would...which is what I was going for.  I've always meant to go back and touch it up, but lately I've been writing fanfic instead.  One day I'll go and fix it up.  This particular file is a little bit grainy because it's in a compressed format.  I'll dig out the uncompressed version and post it later.

I know it's not new, but its the first time I've ever shared it with the public (apart from the little chunk of it in my avatar).  I guess it's okay to submit for the Dream Splash, right?   :)

Lol, I know how it works, but I think it is funny that after almost a year and a half, I still am a "New Member."

I know how you feel.  :)  I lurked on this forum for more than a year before I finally joined, and I've been a member about a year.  So I feel like I've been around forever, but I only have thirty-some posts.  :)

Hah, I've thought about reworking the rank system so that Lavos (+3000) comes before the heroes, but then the upper ranks would already be spoiled...

But I've got some tasty ideas for ranks above that, like the ominous "Paradox" or even "Time Devourer". Still, I'm probably going to reach these ranks before anyone...

Bleah, all the Gurus of [Anything] have vanished except Geiger. I guess we should hold a new court sometime.

"Time Devourer" would be an awesome rank.  How many posts do you have to have to be a Guru, out of curiosity?

I love Chrono Trigger and Cross.  I heart Glenn as my favorite Cross character, and Schala as my all time favorite female character ever.

I'm also a huge Stargate fan (both shows).  Torri Higginson and Rachel Luttrell are the most awesome actresses ever.  :)
