Frog, Nadia, Lucca
« on: November 22, 2009, 10:00:25 pm »
I keep forgetting to post these. They're based on a dream I had, taking place during the Fall of Guardia. Marle and Crono were fighting against the Porreans, but suddenly Marle was spirited away by one of the castle staff. Crono chased them and ended up trapped with Marle in a part of the castle he didn't know existed. He and Marle step through the only open door in the room...and vanish.

Skipping ahead, Lucca rescues Glenn from imprisonment and re-Froggification at the hands of a magician who has been kidnapping and transforming humans into beings similar to Frog.

Plus a whole lot of background info that's too long to put here. I don't want to bore anyone. This takes place in an alternate timeline from any of the Chrono games. There's more info on the pages themselves if you're interested, but it's not very cohesive or well-written...

The pictures!

She doesn't wear this during the siege, but she wears it later, in 600 AD. It's a gift from Leene.

Frog was wearing this. He's really ticked off that he's a Frog again, but he finds that he's sort of fond of the form, which is keeping him from being able to turn back. He'll eventually return to human form.

My personal theory: Magic makes your ears pointed. Lucca continues to practice magic after the events of CT while still being a genius inventor.

That's it. I may or may not post the full story/dream in fanfiction form...

Nope.  Birth defects make your ears pointy.  If magic made them pointy, then magic can make them rounded again.

All and all, nicely done.  The Marle pictures was perhaps a little too bright (something about the levels that need adjusting).  Other than that, keep up the good work.

I feel like you HAVE posted these before.
Either that or I'm getting an unbelievably strong sense of deja vu.

Ah, that Lucca one is really fascinating. Nice pose, too. How ironic that she supposedly died in a fire, being a fire innate. I wonder what Mr. Kato was trying to tell us...

These are great.  Love 'em.  You're really talented.

My favourite is Marle.  She looks absolutely fierce.

"What might be our strength one day may be our weakness another day."

At least, that's what I took from it.  Or...

"That which we passionately pursue may ultimately consume us and destroy us."

Those are my best guesses, anyway.  What says you?

Thanks a lot! It's good that my older works can still hold up under scrutiny...

Really love your work! I was going to ask why Lucca's ears are pointed, but I guess you explained that! I love your use of shading. I don't know art-terms very well, but your art looks like its 3d while... not really being 3d? Is it just called cell-shading? Anyway, it is unique and I enjoyed them a lot.

Ahahaha, my head will explode from all these insane EGO BOOSTS.

Seriously, thanks!

Lucca: I don't mean she magically made her ears pointed, I meant that practicing magic has the side effect of making your ears pointed. It's not based on any canon, it's just my own opinion. Feel free to disagree. 8D

Also, you're right about the Marle one...but I'm not going to go back and fix it now.
