I completely agree and thought the very same thing when I first saw the sketch, but I decided it wasn't worth it to get her to change it. And I already asked her to change the choker out to some straps to make her less like Nei, so I'm kind of being a wimp about asking her to change other parts. :oops:

I would love it if Anna looked like she was about to redefine pain, in the hottest way possible, of course.

If your paying money, you should get it changed.
It really isn't a huge thing to edit for the artist.

You're right, and upon more thought, I contacted the artist and asked if it was too late to change her expression. I also sent her Anna's page from the Compendium for examples of Anna's more serious demeanor.

She's done! Changes were implemented: new expression (which kind of resembles the expression she had in the game's final cut scene; cool!) and new straps. I fraking LOVE this.

AMAZING :Drools: Really cool and well worth your investment.

Glad you like her! She's probably my favorite so far. I like the airbrushed background and neon-looking whip. Even though this is supposed to be an updated design, the background gives it a great nostalgic 1980s vibe to me.

As of moments ago, I sent my Thea ideas off to a new artist. Here's her dA page if you want to take a peek at her art style:

The big change for Thea will be a move away from frilly and towards ancient Greek/Roman overtones. It's not like Laya's outfit, though.

I also found an artist to help with the male characters, and am about to send ideas off for a Kain redesign. His redesign is among the least drastic I have in mind. His red outfit will be a one-piece mechanic's coverall, he'll be holding his psygun from the text adventure, he'll have mechanic's gloves instead of those silver bracers, and his yellow boots won't be quite so yellow. His hair will be about the same, since there's nothing really that dated about it. Of course he'll be smirking. I'm debating giving him welder's tinted glasses (not goggles!) to have on top of his head, but I'm not sure. Anime characters with goggles on their heads is becoming so cliché these days. Every series has a smartass guy with goggles now.

So be on the lookout for Thea and Kain!

I'd like to give a star for this topic.

I love the Anna design! It was well worth your investment, indeed. The whip definitely reminds me of the ones in PSP, which is kinda cool actually. :D Colors are good, and I have nothing to complain about...other than I do miss the skirt. :P

Haha! You crack me up, Zucca! I'm glad you're enjoying it, though.

Thanks Tsu! (And hi!) I kind of miss her skirt, too, but I'm sure Rolf isn't. ;) The whip came out great and makes me wish it had been a good weapon in PSII.

Thea was totally hot... Lesbians wouldn't like her, but I think she's got it. Nice artwork! I'ma fan.

Lesbians wouldn't like her? *confused*

Anyway, I'm glad you like it so far. She'll be much more dynamic in the final piece (and check it out! She has a Layan tattoo!), throwing her slicer. I'm already crazy excited about this artist doing another PSIII commission. I'm thinking maybe Lena? If only I could get inspired, though...

I'm getting an urge to draw a proper Kara sketch... But my damn schedule is keeping me busy... AH, SCREW IT!!!

Edit: I just showed the Thea illustration to a friend of mine who happens to like women. She said: "That guy's wrong. I'd totally eat her."

I love this artist and I also like her design loads.
I really wanted to put every detail in but due to the size of the ps 4 sprite, that wasn't an option.
So it's as close as I could get.
Amazing, very Rinoa (FF8) which I love.
Might steal your idea for a certain fan game.


Left - Neo Thea
Right- Semi Classic Thea

@Wing-0, a fellow nemesis of mines who I argued over forever about homosexuality in a topic that will remain forever locked said Sari was smoking hot, and Thea was ugly and something else... That little lesbian line was a knock at that member, cause they had JUST gotten done mentioning how Thea was ugly seconds before I replied to this post...

I also had told her OF COURSE she thought Sari was hot, Sari looked like a butch dike :P lol

For real though, keeping it serious...

ImageImage Doesn't Sari KINDA look like Conan? Wait, wait...

ImageIf it wasn't for the chest, it'd be hard to tell this was a chic.
