: Forgot to sharpen it. Now it's crisp and lovely instead of blurry and dumb. c: Also upped
the contrast just a teensy bit.
Good lord this took a long time (just take a look at the approx. below), but considering how huge it is and
how many days I completed it in, it's not too bad. I actually finished it sooner than I expected, but hell was
it ever a load of work.
Originally there were supposed to be more characters featured in this thing, too. Four more, to be exact. Eh,
well, maybe five. Naomi and Aito were supposed to take up the bottom left side, and Ikkei and Tatianna on
the right. And possibly Sorrow, whose new name, by the way, is Soren. c: I decided his name was kind of . . .
silly. Like, why would you name your child Sorrow
? It's almost as if they were trying to doom him to
a life of misery.
But anyway, they didn't make the cut. I couldn't fit them into the picture right. It seemed no matter what I
did, they just made everything look horribly crowded. Plus it would've taken a lot longer for me to get this
done if I'd put them in. Wasn't worth it when I have a commission, a Kiriban drawing, and a bunch of gift art
that I want to work on.
So in the end I decided to just stick with Kaine (pre-insanity) & Kyani, Hikaru & Elizabeth, Ellen, Alexander,
and Iori. I was planning on throwing Alex's old Awakening outfit through the revamping process, but when
I went back and looked it over, I found that it didn't really require a change. It wasn't too complex, nor was
it too simple, so why fix what's not broken?
As for Iori, however . . . I'm really happy with his new outfit. Like really ridiculously happy. I don't have to
deal with that pain-in-the-butt hood anymore, which I was finding harder and harder to draw for some reason,
he looks more bad-ass now, and he has these new super awesome gloves.
