The calm before the storm by StarlightMemories The calm before the storm by StarlightMemories
It gets harder the more I like a character

Characters Left to Right (to those who aren't familiar with the game): Masqurin, Synbios, Isabella, Julian and Medion.

I made this artwork in my spare time.
I wanted to make a fanart for the 20th anniversary of the Shining Force Saga, but the other one got messed up.
So, I made this one a little bit too early.
First I wanted to make a Shining Force fanart with characters in their resting time. I unarmed them and made a calm scene (the calm before the storm) before the battle in the next day.

For those who played the game, 13 or 14 years ago:
As I was drawing this I discovered two things I couln't see in the original game about those characters:
Synbios hair was dark brown (just like Suzaku from Code Geass) in the game, but in his original artwork his hair was light brown to red (maybe he was supposed to be Red haired, just like Julian).
Isabella, for a half-sister looks too much like her brother: Looking at their bodies structure, they seem to look the same age. Isabella has the same look as her brother (despite of drawing her more at ease), the same hair colour and the same eye colour (in some artwork, Medion has blue eyes). I began thinking they were intended to be twins, but the Developers changed their minds in the last minute.

I liked the presentation, but I failed a little while making some perspective in Synbios and Masqurin's arms (I tried to make their hands 30 cm further, but it didn't result so well).

P.S. To those who were following my art since the begining, you must now have an idea were I got the names for 2 of the main characters of Orium Caspium stories. (Medion from The Seal and Julian, the Infinity from the sequel.)

This is amazing! You're right, Isabella does look really similar... interesting. Julian looks quite worried, I want to give him a hug <3 ..but I always want to give Julian a hug o.o

Me gusta esta escena. Además al tener tantos personajes es bastante difícil. Te ha quedado muy bien ^^
