Hola!
Yes, I colored something...
I was drawing a bunch of "Retro art of games I played before I could draw!" pictures... hahaha, this was the first of many in a series: Secret of Mana!
Probably one of my absolute favorite games from my childhood...

This illustration was used in "How I Color My Illustrations", by me. ^^

Yes, I know there are a lot of things off in the image porportion-wise... but I am not going back to fix it!

Please keep your comments about the illustration.

I do state in my disclaimer at the bottom of my comment box: "Please do not copy, use [icons, avatars, etc.], reproduce, or redistribute the art for any reason other than personal use."
I would respect if you would not use any of my illustrations for uses other than personal use. Basically I do not allow use of my art in other's productions, so your Youtube channel would qualify as something I do not allow.
Thank you for asking first.

I love it! I really enjoy that you gave the sprite the axe, 'cause that's the way I roll.

It's funny that you drew the Sprite with the ax and the Girl with the spear. That's always what I equipped them with when I played. XD

Hehe, because that's what I always made them use as well!
I guess it's one of those weapons-that-fit-the-personality sort of thing, hehe.

Ah yes, one of the only RPGs I could stand to play through entirely. Good times, then.
The composition's good, and you've got some nice colors, but you used too much shadow. Also, the princess looks older than the hero and sprite--the shading of her face doesn't help things either.

yush, it makes her look like she has really high cheekbones... sadly, I know this already. Hehe.

It might be dark on your monitor... I have mine calibrated for my art program settings and it looks exactly as I see it when printed. So you might want to look in on that~

Awesome job, you should try Legend of Mana next.

This is a game I played a long, LONG time ago.. and I played Legend of Mana a long, LONG time ago too [when it first game out]. hehee. I'm a HUGE "Legend of..." or the Seiken series. I've pretty much played every single one other than the new one for PS2, and the one they released for Wii. But yeah... old skool Mana fan here, hehe.

I dont blame you, anything after Legend of Mana fails in my eye. And dont bother with Dawn of Mana. Unless you like 5 minute loading screens for inventory menus.

Also, there's a Wii Mana game? o_o

This was one of the games I loved most as a child, too. I never got to beat it, even now, but I friggin loved it. Playing it years later kind of kills the magic of it all, but hey, it was cool at the time.

This was one of my fave games as a kid also. X3 I love your renditions of SNES gamessss. I played as the girl always, but you made her look fierceee. hehehe.

I also enjoyed your walkthrough on this picture, it's always so unique to see how others do their coloring.

Just awesome, the end. :d
