Sorey’s white spandex Super Saiyajin suit, Rose’s frilly Sailor Senshi dress, both their rainbow sparkle powers, their rapunzel hair, and their weird spiky high heels are gifts to mankind and should be appreciated.
So I decided to do screencap redraws of some armatus mystic arte cut-ins. In case you couldn’t tell yet, subtly de-anime-ing anime is one of my favourite pasttimes (and amazing practice, too. You wouldn’t even believe how I struggled with the colour flats, even with the blues!).
For a second, I actually thought about doing a screencap with an actual background for practice reasons (because GOSH this game has glorious sky backgrounds), but I wanted to draw the armatizations and flashy elemental effects, so that won out. It reflects how I play this game.
My sister: “You’re using the Sailor Moon mode more often than you’re using normal attacks, aren’t you?”
Me: “Er… yes???” *violently hits L1 and is offended whenever an enemy doesn’t have any elemental weaknesses*
Also me: *sometimes uses the water armatus just because she’s too lazy to move towards the enemies*
Also me: *armatizes with seraphim under-attack-at-the-other-end-of-the-battlefield because it solves the age-old “STOP ATTACKING MY MAGE, YOU ASS!!!” problem. And also because I’m sure Mikleo would be SO pissed to be saved from attacks that way, and that’s funny*
Also me (actually in every video game ever): *screams, curses and shouts at the screen, and pushes buttons with a lot of force*
I case you didn’t realise it yet, this game has officially both saved and destroyed my life, it’s very flashy and I love it. The anime is a wonderfully animated bad fanfiction, though, and I recommend to stay miles away from it.
*silent whisper in the distance* You can’t purify dragons.
Imagine these cut-ins being ANIMATED. This should have been the Zestiria anime that we all deserved but didn’t get, damn it.
ANYWAY, TECHNICAL INFO:
All Photoshop. Lines are sloppy, colouring is sloppy, everything is sloppy, but it was fun! There.Shall.Be.Even.More.Some.Day.
For the record, rough sketches of the remaining cut-ins (which I don’t intend to line and colour) can be found here: toradhart.tumblr.com/post/1580…
. I love the fire armatus on Sorey, too, but his Super Saiyajin pose won out in the end.
AAAND this is new: for those who didn’t read about this yet, I sold my soul to Google and I now have a Youtube account! Partial recordings of some parts of the drawing process are up there! www.youtube.com/channel/UCpYor…
