Week Two: Battle At Sea

Submission for week two! “The Divine Spirit of Language,” the song used for this week’s theme, was featured in Star Ocean: Till the End of Time, the third installment in the Star Ocean series by Enix. It’s played during a boss battle against Crosell, a hulking behemoth of a dragon that’s literally 20x larger than the characters. So, I was inspired to draw a similar battle, though the story behind it is completely different, and the opponent is not quite as large. 😉

There were quite a few things in this pic that I’m particularly proud of:

  • Raiyoku in his eagle form, which is actually based off art I’ve seen of Japanese hawks; his human form can be seen here: http://oronoda.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d4nj4xy
  • a believable sea and sky (oh, how I love the water tool…)
  • getting all six of my main characters in one pic, even though only 1.5 out of 6 are fully visible… and their colors were done quite poorly…

I hope to incorporate my characters in future submissions, and look forward to week three. And thanks so much to Simon for starting this whole thing!!! 😀
