Horribly long description is long. Proceed with care.
I.wanted.to.do.these.for.so.long. I’ve been working them on them on and off in free minutes in between. For MONTHS.
Tales of Zestiria linearts! Tales of Zestiria GIVES ME LIFE. Have I mentioned that today? Aka Tales of Sailor Super Saiyajin Sorey the actual Eevee gijinka who is too pure for this world, and his merry sentai team of friendly elemental spirits who fight evil in very tight and very silly looking costumes (I mean, get real, combat stilettos!? WHY!?). How is this not awesome. The accompanying manga and anime adaptations are so beautifully animated/drawn that it makes my heart melt (less happy about the story changes, though), and I could cry for ages about the entire incredibly likeable cast of characters. That being said, I haven’t had that much fun with a JRPG for a long time, and I don’t fangirl THAT HARD about anything very often. New life goal: create something that gives people the feels that I have about this game.
Thank you Bamco but also damn you because I think I’ve become the personification of tumblr due to THIS GAME I SWEAR
As usual, I ever so slightly de-anime-d the characters. You’ll never believe how long the linearts took me. And I even cheated and traced some of the patterns in their clothing to speed up the process, argh… (Lailah, how is your dress even real)
Good news is that I’m ridiculously proud of these linearts. They’re also very clean for my standarts. I’m seriously thinking about adding Dezel and (since Berseria is just around the corner) Laphicet and Eizen to the bunch as well to have all playable Seraphim/Malakim covered, heavens help me…
THERE WILL BE COLOUR. I’m just not sure yet whether I’ll go for digital cel shading, shining traditional drawing ink, or both. There will also be elemental magic. Which you mostly can’t see yet.
I tag this description #Tales

Official music suggestion: eat the opening folks I’m totally not addicted to this beautiful shit NO NEVER (the Japanese original of course. The instrumental still rocks but I prefer it with the vocals)www.youtube.com/watch?v=e8tAyl…
. I’m also pretty much addicted to this most epic of battle themes: toradh.tumblr.com/post/1545063…

100% Photoshop. Zaveid got “finished” just yesterday night, I lack sleep, I have a headache and I’m genuinely afraid of next week and life in general, so chances are that I’ll hate these linearts the very moment when I can think straight again. But we’ll see about that.
