Star Ocean 2 - Rena by Dice9633 Star Ocean 2 - Rena by Dice9633
Oooo, Rena!! I tried to maker her look prettier and more her age than the way she was depicted in the PSP port of Star Ocean 2.

This took a surprisingly short amount of time (which is rare for me), but a lot of fun to do nonetheless since it is as simple as it is.

Enjoy. =)

I think the only two pictures that did her any justice was yours and Kaikky... Everyone elses are cheap knockoffs in comparison lol =)

I really like Rena in Star Ocean 2.

By the way, you ever notice how Rena and Sailor Mercury look alike?

The game probably has my favorite villains ever!

You've captured the part of Rena that usually goes unnoticed in fanart: her bitterness and grief. Faving for sure.

Rena is so beautiful. I wish I had played the PS1 version of SO2... but I have the PSP version. I heard they changed her outfit between the two versions... :( Oh well, she's still hot though. I like the way she looks in this picture, too, she looks so intelligent. There's nothing flashy in this picture, which is very good because it shows the true skill of the artist. I'd say that's worth 10 out of 10! (yeah, I couldn't help but quote Claude there! Sorry! :D)

Haha great response, made me giggle! Thanks for the 10 out of 10 (that's a quote that's so bad, it's good because of it). The fact she looks "intelligent" came as a surprise, and really flattered me! Thank you!

Very touching, love the effect, and the background looks beautiful. I especially like how you have the effects of the wind blowing her hair elegantly.

It's not really the BEST game... the first half is pretty boring. But I can't stop loving it... haha
I love Rena, for some reason, I just think creators have been really inconsistent with how to envision her.

yep, Rena is my favourite female character too! She's different from the others, that's why I love her so much :D
and about the boys, who're your favourites? I like Claude but I'm in love with Leon and Ashton!XD These two are just too sweet!

You and me both... I actually liked the older 90's art in comparison to.... the Claude-the-Pedophile aspect, flirting with an 8 year old girl, skipping through the forest. ...That just makes it sound worse...

Err... only so many designs I like from that one... I think my favorites are the major NPCs. One being the would-be oracle Lymle knows, and the other the girl who made Faize go stupidly in love within 5 minutes.

Reimi is pretty... except her flappy skirt things.

Oh? Why's that? (I actually found the PSX portraits kinda better, even if they did lack the "polish" of the PSP version)

Well I just feel better playing this old thing with the old portraits... I think in the PSP version many of them look too young... but maybe I'm just foolish^^

No, not at all; they are too young looing. Celine's open mouth looks weird too. It's like a hamburger stacked as this:
Top Lip
Upper Teeth
Tongue
Bottom Teeth
Bottom Lip
Under Lip Shadow
It oddly looks messy. The voices are still better than the first, you can't take the GodAwfulVoiceActing award from the first game...

^^ Star Ocean 2 fanart! Sort of rare, that is. Awesome^^

Hm, I agree. She does look a little young in the PSP port, but then again, it seems a lot of RPG characters these days do not look their age XD At least I think so...

I for one, couldn't believe that Claude (Crawd XD) is 19 when he said so..
He looked sort of...16. XD Or that might just be me...

I sorta like her. I think she's sweet (and bloody mandatory if you hope to beat the game). I did get this vibe she was actually a big whore part way through the game. I think she has like feelings for Claude/Crawd, Ashton, and Dias at one point or another... hell, probably even lured Leon at one point...pfft. Just messing, thanks for the compliment.=)

I think the everything annoyed me after SO2. It's not even *that* old and it's aged horribly. Go youtube it for a giggle - the art itself shows the animators stopped caring after the 3rd episode haha
