What do you mean you can only have 16 pineapple gels?! :iconsadfaceplz:

I'm replaying Tales of the Abyss. --> fanart. :P
I'm also trying to incorporate more of what I've been learning, such as color theory and what not, but that's not very interesting is it?

*glares at Mieu* You escape unscathed this time...

And then they try to lower the prices later, but it's too late. >,X
The damage is done, I don't wanna buy from you people! xD

Thank you, Moogle~

I LOVE how you incorporated an actual city into the piece, sadly I've never seen anyone else do that. It just makes it so much more interesting to me! :D
So yeah, anyways, great job! Do another? 833

I totally agree, one of the best parts about walking around in a tales game is the atmosphere it presents, and Chesedonia has such a bustling and exciting feel that it'd be a shame not to draw it! Cx
And, man, when I get free time, I'd love to! 8D

Exactly, Chesedonia is one of my favourite places in the game, it just seems like such an amazing place to go to!
If I could draw people like you, I'd be putting up drawings of the cities too. But sadly I can only draw backgrounds, and bustling cities just look like ghost towns without people. ^^;

And yeah, Abyss is one of my favorites! I think the characters are some of the strongest personality-wise out of all of the Tales games I've played so far.

I agree, the personalities are great which doesn't surprise me considering how impressive Symphonia 1 and 2 were. Sadly they're the only other two Tales games Ive played so far but I'm working on correcting that issue.

I need to pace myself on Abyss though cause I keep pressing forward to see what happens next and I'm getting a bit under-leveled for the boss fights. XD

Yeah, Tales games take a while to get outside Japan, if they ever do, so getting to play them all is hard! I've only played four myself. (It certainly doesn't help that they can't decide on one console. XD)
And I know what you mean! The storytelling it set up so that you usually have a sense of urgency or important to getting to the next plot point, like if you spent too long grinding monsters for leveling you'd end up letting the world get destroyed! D:

Haha yes very true! That's exactly it! But at least that's what the second playthrough is for; going back through and taking your time on the things you didn't before and getting those things you missed. Ive found with Tales of Symphonia theres always something new that I never found before even after 7 or more playthroughs. It's crazy.

As for the number of Tales ive been able to play, Tales of the Abyss is my third but without a Playstation I likely won't be playing any more less I can get Tales of Graces for the Wii patched so I can understand it.

That's why I'm all sorts of sad I don't have a PSP. All of the Tales of the World games come out on it, and you can even create a character, I hear. :C
And I totally agree on the second playthroughs: that how I figured out how to get Kratos back in my team again! Yay, Kratos! :dummy:

Oh man, seriously? Wow now I want a PSP too! Making my own character would be soo freaking cool!

As for Kratos, me and my sister have always preferred Zelos. Kratos always irked us the way he acted. haha

:icongavi-gavi:
gavi-gavi Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2012  Student General Artist
Yeah, I felt bad after I had to kill Zelo, but usually I'd still try to defend Kratos, even if he acted like a total prick the entire time. XD
And I know, right?! Why didn't they release it on the DS or ANYTHING else? XD

Oh yea.... I see it. But he's wearing red rather than purple so it... yeah.

:iconcryforeverplz: You're so kind!

So my color theory, huh? Okay...
I had an overall idea that there would be a red-orange theme or mood, essentially the color you would take away when looking at it. To try to emphasis that, I tried to make many of the colors warmer by making them slightly closer to red. For instance, Luke's coat has a lot of orange tint toward the top and the shading of Guy's hair is really red (that's also to show the red shade from the canopy). Also, to contrast the reds and oranges, I made the sky intensely blue as well as give tear rather neutral, colder shading. This kind of highlighted the reds at the bottom and under the canopy, but also gave your eye some negative space to move around the picture with.
:iconsweatdropplz: I don't know... did that make sense? I didn't exactly organize my thoughts very well. XD
