Fan Art - 09/08/03  

   Advanced Wind  

I promised last week or so to have a new layout for Fan Art, but I ran into a few snags in the coding and am now looking it over like mad to see if there's any way I can optimize our layout. If you wish to see the current layout, hand coded by yours truly, you simply click on this link and you'll be taken to a nifty link. I use an insane resolution, so if you go blind I am sorry. You can sound off in our update thread for this update, located in the *dundundun!* Latest Updates Forum! Pretty derned easy if you ask me.

Also, a PSA for those of you who receive the SoBig virus from art@rpgamer, fanart@rpgamer, cainejw@rpgamer or any past updaters:

This computer or the webpage I use to check my e-mail is 100% secure, and accordingly there should be no infection. Meaning, I am not infected with this virus, so you should not be getting it from me. This is the virus known as Klez forging the header to be from us when we are not sending it. Most e-mail providers have wisened up and finally blocked most SoBig attachments, but some do get through. I get about 50 e-mails a day on a good day telling me the SoBig I didn't send is failing to send. On a bad day, it's 100. So don't send me e-mails telling me to stop sending you virii(plural of virus), I am not sending them.

Never open .pif, .exe, .zip, .rar, .scr, or any other executable format if you don't know who it's from. If you do know them, ask them before you open it

"Zell, Remade"
Artwork by Jane Chen
Zell - Final Fantasy 8

Artist's Comments: Zell is one of my favorite FF characters. When drawing him, I took particular interest in his tattoo and the slightly mischievous look of his mien, since both aspects are definitive of Zell. The hardest part of this picture is probably Zell's skin tone, with the hair coming in a close second. Photoshop 7.0 and Intuos2 were my tools.

Zelos, Genius - Tales of Symphonia

Artist's Comments: Heh, I saw something like this depicted in a screenshot. ^o^ I tried to do this with Paint BBS, but again, my browser messed up. -_-; So all the green magic-y effect stuff is made in PSP.

"Curious Momo"
Artwork by Starchaser
Momo - Breath of Fire 3

Artist's Comments: I love Momo's design, she's just such a cute character, one of the few game girls who are not stick skinny and wearing skin tight clothing, or next to nothing. That's why I was so excited to discover that you could apprentice under her in Breath of Fire IV!

"Emotion Revolution"
Artwork by Katya
Sephiroth - Final Fantasy 7

Artist's Comments: I love to draw Sephiroth so I did this for an art appreciation project to express our emotions with colors. Sephiroth represents myself, the meteor represents my anger and hatred. The double wing is my conscience and finally, the safer sephiroth represents my satisfaction and happiness so there is a misshapen halo since it is not the dominant side. Pretty much Sephiroth's emotions as well.

"Great Gospel"
Artwork by Sefie Gainsborough
Aeris - Final Fantasy 7

Artist's Comments: Ahh, I can't believe how hard I've worked on this! It's Aeris doing her ultimate Limit Break, Great Gospel. I realize that the background's on a different angle than her, but as it's a screen shot that couldn't be helped.

"Jedi Powers"
Artwork by Kashi
Unknown - Kingdom Hearts

Artist's Comments: This was originally a more colorful picture, but it ended up a little too.. ehh.. no sure what it was, but I didn't like it. After some filter smacking, I thought it looked pretty good as wallpaper. Enjoy.

Artwork by Tisbore
Black Mage - Final Fantasy 1

Artist's Comments: inspiration from others art is always great. fan art can help you practice something you would like to improve. but copying line for line. you dont learn anything. but to follow the lines and try to figure out why other artist drew that certain line. picture it, dont copy it.

"Final Battle in Stained Glass"
Artwork by Patorik
Link, Ganondorf - Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker

Artist's Comments: I consider myself to be a fairly good artist, so when I saw the official Stained Glass pictures, I figured I could make one of my own. While there are a couple of mistakes that I can see, I'm happy with it. This took weeks to finish, and was drawn in Flash.

Only the Night Sky Knows

I hope that made up for the long time you went without updates. Next week I will be answering questions you have for me on the contest, so if you have any please post them in the update forum for this update and I will answer them publically. Thats all I have for this update. Stay safe until next week, which will probably end up being next month at the rate I'm going. Also, I am asking that we please start holding off on the Final Fantasy. I know it is the most popular title of RPG games, but we are simply accumulating too many right now. There are many other great titles out there so start looking for other games to play and draw, because Final Fantasy art here is nearing it's breaking point.

To guess, please do it in the update thread.
