The Scholar is an interesting base but the Reliquian... is completely off. The Reliquian is basically an Antique dealer (The original name we had planned for them was Antiquirian) Guns and all that... jazz? Really don't fit it very well, in fact, we have a traditional Minwu sprite for him, sort of as an ode to FF2 (Minwu is my favorite character in it) as well as the Dragon Warrior series, with the look being slightly reminiscent of the Merchant . That sprite (fully complete except a portrait, maybe one of you fellows can help out with that, it is the topic called "A Portrait for Minwu" in the Spriting section, should be on the second page.)

In reality, I wanted a more gritty look for some of the classes, for instance the Invoker, I would like it to be a human version of...



The cantor, should look a little bit more rough and tumble then the traditional White Mage, they do use Shields and Swords now, as it stands.

The problem with the Arbalist design there is that it seems a bit close to the Sniper in FFTA, granted the only thing I ever imagined for an Arbalist was sunglasses on an Archer sprite, hehe.

Though I do particularly like the Scholar design, I'm not sure what class it could openly be used for.

^ Ahh. The trad image for an invoker.
Should we keep the Black Mage's face if ever?
 
How about the Traveler job for the scholar w/out hat? hehe..

The cantor would be close to a Paladin, as it seems.
I personally like Yuna's Psychic Job for the Inquisitor job, bec. it's purple!!

Well Voldemort, keep in mind that in Mercenaries, Arbalists are Very lightly defended, being the only class unable to equip any sort of headgear.

The traveler in essence is a fallen scholar, or a scholar that has lost it's way so an inverted scholar look would certainly be of much interest to me, but no, the Invoker is planned to show their face.

Inquisitor though is a bit trickier... they are Mage-Slaying Knights, after all. But I can't think of a fitting design, something very... holy and self righteous would be an interesting combination, but most Inquisitor's in Mercenaries aren't actual Inquisitor's, they're just using the monicker of a company from many ages past.

Inquisitors are MA based, swords and armors probably won't fit them.


Maybe I should add the job info in the first post..

That's true, especially since they can equip all manner of heavy armor, hehe. While they're MA based, they can't equip Robes, because well... they use Magic to fight Magic. Also as for the design concept of the Arbalist, I really like that Dalton type full body cape thing, just without armor. Full body capes are pretty fancy, and they shouldn't take Too much effort to sprite.

Oh I see. Too bad.. I expected Inquisitors to be kinda like Sages\Professors in Ragnarok Online, or
something that will make them look very studious and intelligent.

So inquisitors are some kind of green warder? hehe.
because MP is green!


Can you link me to the Minwu sprite?


What about the Hessian and Trancer?
Traditional Hessian Look?
Trancer = Freelancer? = Anything cool?



WC3's, or DotA's Mortred might fit uniquely for the Arbalist..
Are Arbalist some kind of Assassins?

cute. :P

Here's the page with the Minwu sprite. Still needs a portrait, of course, but he's pretty much done. I'll take a stab at the portrait myself, but know that nothing good will come of this. Oh, LD could you elaborate on what you mean by "inverted scholar" for the Traveler's appearance? That sounds too cool to let up.

Yeah, the Minwu sprite fits Reliquian well. They both sound ancient. :)
Thanks for the link, mav.

...I've attached a Minwu Portrait Work-In-Progress. It's not complete, and it needs work (mostly with shading), it's lacking Minwu's signature jewel, and it doesn't look exactly the same as it did in FF2. If anyone wants to work on it from here, be my guest, as I don't see myself working too much more on it.

Decent portrait attempts guys, but it definitely needs a lot of work. I don't have any suggestions right now, other then that you should probably add some more color somehow so it isn't quite so monochrome.

Yeah, part of the reason I gave up on a Minwu portrait is cause he's whole garb can come off as dull so easily...I'll work with the colors and shading on mine, but I'm having a lazy streak at the moment.

Yeah. As far as my portrait goes, I started with the turban and then worked on recoloring (skin and clothing). I'll reshape his mask to the more familiar triangle shape, give him the jewels on his turban, and hopefully replace his eyes too.

Eventually.

EDIT: Alright, I decided to just go crazy and see what happened; the result is the attachment. Please, offer any advice or criticism you have. Also I couldn't figure out where to place the jewel on his turban, so I'd definitely like some input on that. And as always, I have no objection to anyone who wants to take this off my hands and do whatever to it. Note, I will clean up the palette soon, once the base of the sprite is done or acceptable.

EDIT 2: Alright, I have another version pretty much ready, but I'd rather hear what you guys think about this one before I post the next version. The only difference is a piece of cloth that extends from the turban, to cover the left side of the mask. Still the same colors, but it pulls things together a little differently.
