I Adore Thee
January 24th, 2002

In a few days, I'll officially be back at college and living in the crazy dorms. What does that mean for this Fan Art section? Nothing, really. =P It just means that updates may be more frequent again and I'll be on AIM more often to bug you all. Better internet connection... no siblings to fight over the 'Net time... less general problems... Hahahaha...

Er, so, on to the fan art, eh? In this update, there's the usual Final Fantasies along with fan art of Ragnarok Online, Suikoden III (FINALLY!), Xenosaga, War of Genesis III, and Secret of Mana! And I must say "kudos" to these fan artists! They've really impressed me not only for their style and design, but with their love for other role playing games. That's not saying I dislike Final Fantasy... I just wish people would show more fan art love for OTHER RPGs. I'm sure people have heard of Breath of Fire IV, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and Wild Arms 1. ;P

Anyway, this latest update contains the last of the late November and most of December submissions. Just a few more to go for the next update and the holiday backlogs will be done! Of course, that's not saying you can't send anything to me now, right? Send fan art right here as always, and Jen will be very happy. (Er, I'm Jen, by the way.)

In other news, I mentioned in the update before this one that I'd give an example of the Critique page for all to look at, and then I'd begin accepting submissions for it. However, I've decided to add it at a later date due to do my realization of the next semester at college. (Okay, so the whole moving-to-college DOES have an impact here.) Anyone interested in seeing an in-the-works critique page is welcome to ask me about it through e-mail. Other than that... well, I guess it'll have to wait until my schedule is cleared up. Sorry 'bout that. =(

So, with all that said, see you all on the next update!

Chibi Jacques in a Tree!
Artist: Jessica Westover
Game/Inspiration: Suikoden III
Comments: I got the idea for this picture from the scene where Jacques went to sleep in a tree because he couldn't fall asleep in a bed. I think he's just too adorable. What with his extreme oddness and all ^.^
Assassin under red Moon
Artist: Lisomorphe
Game/Inspiration: Ragnarok Online
Comments: I miss Ragnarok sooo much that I can't stop drawing my characters.
Artist: Lisomorphe
Game/Inspiration: Final Fantasy IX
Comments: I made this fanart because I love Garnet, she's so cute ^_^, don't you think?
Artist: Adam Brake
Homepage: None.
Game/Inspiration: Final Fantasy X
Comments: I did this picture at my friends house using a led pencil and water color paints. This isn't my best, but I rarely color my art so I'd thought I'd post it up. If you'd like to see more of my art or have any comments please please e-mail me at adambrake03@hotmail.com
Secret of Mana Manga
Artist: Dan Brito
Homepage: None.
Game/Inspiration: Secret of Mana
Comments: Here's some secret of mana fanart that I might just turn into a manga fanfic. The only familiar character from the Secret of Mana series is the sprite (in the middle), the other two main characters (top left), and Jema. The others I created. Also, the golden haired sprite female was based off of Charlotte from secret of mana 2 (3 in Japan) and is her descendant. The character next to Jema with the concerned face is the king of the sprites. He has large antlers, but I wanted to only focus on his face.
War of Genesis III
Artist: Becky
Game/Inspiration: War of Genesis III
Comments: This is an illustration of Demian Von Prios of WoG III. This piece was done for my Painter tutorial. I liked this particular character's design, and attempted to illustrate him. Hope this picture is enjoyed!
Kawaii Mel
Artist: JoSH
Game/Inspiration: Suikoden III
Comments: None.
You Shall Be As a God
Artist: Pigeon
Game/Inspiration: Xenosaga
Comments: Hello =D Kos-Mos is such a great character, you should all check Xenosaga out if you haven't already ^_^ I hope you enjoy the picture!
Proud Cloud
Artist: R.A.Tz
Homepage: None.
Game/Inspiration: Final Fantasy VII
Comments: I used only mechanical pencil for this artwork. After I scanned it, I used levels in Adobe Photoshop to make it like this! Unique eh? I like this artwork very much! Actually this is Cloud from Kingdom Hearts. He's cool rite? FF7 is my favourite of all FF series!
Artist: Theron
Game/Inspiration: Ragnarok Online
Comments: I like this game so i tried to draw my favourite character from this game.. and it is of course a Wizard **ggg**
Midnight Squall
Artist: Gleu
Homepage: None.
Game/Inspiration: Final Fantasy VIII
Comments: Drawn in ink, then edited and colored in microsoft paint (which kinda sucks). My first time sending fanart, but probably not my last. The jpg formating gave the picture some blurr effects, which I think is actualy an improvement.
Squall and Rinoa
