I never even played Tactics Advance. But I really like the Nu Mous' design. Critical frames look great!

Here it is, Twinees, better late than never. Concept art drawing WIP, Nu mou FFT
(Yes, this is still a rough sketch.)


I think blue is the owrst color the robe can have. Suggesting purple, or brown, just not blue.


This is originally part of the Nu mou proyect by Twinees and I, so it will be shown outside of FFTIA. More will be made as well.

Then wait till you see this colored version:

[attachment=1:ktna5hrn]GIMPd Nu mou.png[/attachment:ktna5hrn]

Colors from FFT Chemist

This is the result of countless experiments involving Gimp with 4 layers, colorize, contrast, brightness, layer multipliers, level edits, and many more a nonsense that I probably don't remember by now.. Got the file in case you want to see that mess.
As the shading was done on paper already, there was no need to do any drawing digitally; way to bring my main obstacle down.


EDIT: I could apply these effects to other of my pencil rendered drawings, like the Mateus one, but that'd take significantly longer.

Whoa... taking colors directly from Yoshida's own work is a brilliant idea! I love how old and weathered he looks, yet so defiant. This is a good example piece of capturing the spirit of the originator.

Cause FFH is a site that consist of volunteers maybe? But yeah, for such awesomenes you should be paid.

@Smash: What is so amazing about this is not the quality but how you are able to learn and adapt so quickly :)  This is a superb sketch from top to bottom. I am even more amazed at how you were able to do your coloring in 4 layers (I suppose one for each color? one for the outlines?). He really does look fantastic.

If you are interested in doing these kinds of sketches for work... they usually sell for $60-100 each but although majority of the time you don't get to draw what you want to draw. The practice usually more than pays off itself.


PS: I had always been curious about those ears, are they suppose to look like that? (with a giant hole cut opened? and darkened?).

I doubt I'll have the time to even consider doing these things for work, with college and all. :P


Those are the same Nu Mou ears they've had since their creation.

On the artwork, here's how it was done:


I'll drop the Gimp file on the Babus folder, if anyone wants to have a look.

Twinees, update: Moving around the arms and doing refining to the Northswain sheet. Arms in frontal position have been aligned better now.

This needs some testing btw.
