Skies of Arcadia Hunting for the Red Moon Crystal by Ashikai Skies of Arcadia Hunting for the Red Moon Crystal by Ashikai
I really love this game. It deserves more art from me than this, but this will do for now.

Now I know that going with an open sky motif for SKIES of Arcadia would have been the more obvious choice, but srsly, you spend most of the story hours trudging through dark, ancient temples. So I thought I'd change it up and try that instead. I have a lot of sky pictures lately. Gotta mix it up a bit. XD

I need to get back to that game. I only got a few hours in, yet I loved it.

This is absolutely beautiful!  Perfect in every way!  Who are your favorite NPCs that you wished were playable?
I would love a tv series of this game

All of them? LOL I kinda wish it was a bit more like Suikoden, and that you could swap out any of the characters, TBH. It was a bit boring playing the game with only three characters. I mean the story and gameplay made up for that, but it's probably one of my biggest pet peeves in this game.

But yeah, it would make an amazing tv series! *^*

There were 6 characters you could play as, but with a cast of characters that big...at least 10 should have been playable.

Your art is spectacular, you make the story come to life.  My favorite series is Dragon Quest though...but this one is very close to my heart!

Aaaaaaaaaaaand that shows how memorable they were lol (or just how much I used them). I wasn't really fond of Enrique (I know he was decent in-combat but he was so borrrrring), Dachma wasn't my style (WAY too slow, and I'm no good with tanks with a 3-party system) but I did love Glider. It's been so long since I've done a full playthrough, but I seem to remember replacing Fina with him for a good while, but I'm chronically underleveled all the time and really needed her healing skills more than Gilder's damage. 

If I had to pick one more character to add, I'd pick Piastol cuz she's badass and i wanted to see more of her story. I always wanted Lawerence too. I was convinced for the longest time I could get him as playable... >3>

Enrique was very proper style player, kind of royal but interesting nevertheless.
Dachma was really cool and strong.  His story was really sad I thought.
Glider was really cool and he was always running away from Claire the girl pirate ship. I wished she had become playable.
 I would love to see this game redone!

Piastol was a new character in Legends and she was tough to beat!

She was! That's why I wanted her to be playable. Hell I was convinced she was a secret character right up until the final boss. T_T

You know what you can do is take all those characters that you think should be playable and draw them together in a fighting pose.
Marco - with Sling shot.
Claire - with Dual pistols.
Piastol - has her weapon
and  other ... Vyse's Dad!  He should have been playable too!  he should have pistol and sword.
Anad whoever else.  I know you would really make it look so spiffy!  Be an awesome project

This looks really awesome! I love the styling you gave the main 3. ;-) Aika looks particularly good. :clap:

(I've got both the Dreamcast & GameCube versions, and I don’t think the Dreamcast version was bad in anyway, like those below are pointing out. Plus the music was better, and there was less “glitching” on the transparent stuff. ;-) But then you did get the extra features in the Legends version, so it has its positive aspects as well. :-) )

Thank you! :D

It's also super cool to hear some positives about the Dreamcast version. I usually just hear a lot about how the encounter rate was way too high, and that's about it. I was never lucky enough to have a Dreamcast so it's cool for me. :D

I got my Dreamcast version of the game around the time when it came out in Australia, so some way through 2001. Then I got the GameCube one later on, 2nd hand.
I used to play the Pinta Quest on my VMU when I went out for dinner sometimes. :D

Thanks! I played legends and I think the only complaint I had about the whole game was that the encounter rate was a bit high and the growth rate a little low (I hate grinding). But I heard it was WAY worse on the dreamcast so it makes my complaint a bit pointless. lol XD

I played Legends too, but I didn't mind that much, except while flying when I was trying to get discoveries ah! :D
I can't imagine how bad it was on DC. I was told ship battles were awfully long too. I guess we were lucky to play the GC version first ahah.

This is wonderful! I love their expressions and the lighting especially. Vyse and Aika are intrigued by their discovery, and Fina is a little reluctant... so true to their characters. Awesome job.

They are. But, forget what I said. Thinking about it, picking on eye-colours is pretty nitpicky.

gamecube. I was never lucky enough to own it for the dreamcast... so I guess that means I really played Legends.

Your not missing much, The dreamcast vision was a nightmare with super high encounter rates, legends fixed that so it's all good

Ahaha that probably would have made it so I never finished the game. High encounter rates are KILLERS especially for someone like me who goes through every RPG chronically under-leveled.
