Hey, can anyone tell me why they had to change Doc's tattoo?

Because that's the Star of David, a widely-recognized symbol of Judaism. I think they were trying to avoid referencing a specific real-world religion, or perhaps trying to distance the character from preconceived notions or stereotypes of said religion?

Not sure exactly, but I AM sure it's similar to Crono having Lightning in CT instead of Holy magic.

Besides, Triforces are cool.

These are wonderful!

(You wouldn't have a comparison of Glenn, would you? :) I'm shameless, I know.)

You're right, that is the Star of David, but the upright triangle resembles the pyramid with the eye on American dollar bills, don't you think?  Kind of a strange combo.

Ah, triforce. You just reminds me of something:

I didn't post all of them, just because some prototype characters are almost exactly the same as their final version.  :D

I like the look of Demo Harle  !!
She looks more plain ...which alludes to her being 'something'  more.  :)

Yeah, could that fifty-fifty appearance mean something, or maybe it was just some random clown design.

So...does Doc belong to that Mojo worshipping cult!?  :shock:

One has to have their Mojo after all.

RW, have you seen utunnels' Glenn animations test? Pretty groovy. I wonder whether the demo had a dual-wielding Glenn coded in already? Probably difficult to tell from the textures alone.

Impossible to tell from the textures alone (or at least, single and dual-wielding Glenn use the same texture in the final product, although the models themselves differ very slightly).

Hmm, you are right.
I recall I saw another Glenn (no Lynx though) , so I think I need to double check the model.


Yes, there's a dual-wielding Glenn, same as the final version.
