Since we can't make individual threads for all fan art, use this one to critique certain works that catch your eye.

It's about time this thread gets some lovin.

In keeping with my theory that art begets art, I constantly find myself scavenging the Internet(s) for Chrono-related fanarts for inspiration when writing fanfiction. And every once in a while I stumble upon a work that is just so perfect in the way it encapsulates a character's personality or otherwise strikes the imagination. So fellow Compendiumites, what are your personal favorite Chrono fan artworks? Here's a few of mine:

Cyrus and Glenn, by CuteLucca

Original: http://www.cutelucca.com/ctfanart.html

You don't see Cyrus drawn that often outside of Akira Toriyama's official art, which makes this CuteLucca piece a real treat. After seeing this, I could never envision these characters in any other way than how they appear here: Glenn slightly disheveled and eager to prove himself, though his gaze retains the edginess of having grown up with other kids beating the snot out of him constantly; Cyrus keeping a watchful eye on his adopted little bro'. And the attention to detail -- ah yes, the attention to detail...


From ZealTrio, by Emperor Justin at DeviantArt

Original: http://emperorjustin.deviantart.com/art/Zeal-Trio-FanArt-33355223

This is part of a larger work from Emperor Justin. Schala's exquisitely moody and forlorn here, like she's had a really depressing day -- like, a Lavos-waking-up kind of day. And perhaps neatest of all, the artist seems to have left the shape of her ears ambiguous. I prefer to think of Schala and even Magus as having normal ears, though I know lots of fans like their Zealians to be Elvish.


Title Unknown

Ack! I don't know who the artist is! If it's you, claim it and remind me where I found this.

Lucca is no longer nerdy - she's effin stylish.  Now, that's an RPG battle stance if I've ever seen one. Sans turtle helmet and with sledgehammer, this is the type of depiction that can totally change the course of a fanfic mid-conception; I'm never leaving Lucca out of a story if I can help it.

I think I've just about run the gamut of Chrono fanarts, but I'd pleasantly admit to being wrong about that. What interesting works have you folks come across?

Nice work, Chrono look great. I like the realistic touch, as a opposed to them all being cartoonish.

Wow, not many posts here. .__.; Umm... Well, here's a Ragnarok style sprite I made of Crono just now.

I'm planning to make the whole team + Schala and maybe Serge and Kid. Some constructive criticism would be great. ^__^

Looks, well, perfect to me.

Would you happen to be interested in joining the spriting team of a major Chrono fan project, perchance?

Wow, that's really cool.  I was actually planning to do that for my friend's Ragnarok server that we're going to start up sometime in January... D:

Cool sprites (though I think this thread is more for reviewing than showcasing)...Crono's pants look more brown than I think they should, but otherwise awesome work...I'd love to see renditions of the other party members, though!

I wasn't really sure what this thread was for exactly. ^^;

Um.. yeah... The reason Crono's pants are that color is because I was trying to stick to RO colors. I kinda ended up changing many of the colors anyways though. XD; *fails*

Ah, I was wondering what justin3009 meant by that...I'm totally clueless about RO...All I know about it is that it bumped off the Chrono forum at another site I used to go to...V_V
