Fire Emblem - Nolan bw by Meibatsu Fire Emblem - Nolan bw by Meibatsu
August 28, 2010.

Corel Painter X.

Lineart for the Fire Emblem Club's 20th Anniversary collaboration! I thought I might as well show the lineart before I ruin it with my terrible colouring. xD

Coloured version here: [link]

This is Nolan, a former merchant turned bum turned mercenary leading the Dawn Brigade to fight Begnion's oppression of Daien (in Tellius, Fire Emblem 10). Even though you hardly get to know any of the newer characters in Fire Emblem 10 due to limited support conversations, you can already tell he's awesome, right?! Well, I think he's awesome! He's a true hero in my book! I even like his name! Nolan!

I kept as close as I could to Senri Kita's design because well.. I cannot improve on it more. xD I decided to give him a bit of a good-humoured pose to further illuminate his coolness!

Nolan is one of the few units I really enjoyed using in the Dawn Brigade (though ironically, on Normal mode, they're all stepping up to the plate, even Micaiah). He hits hard and is pretty skilful for an axe user. Plus, he looks like he belongs in Robin Hood's gang, so bonus points there.

I know. His ruggedness and abilityt o take hits makes him awesome. Glad he didn't end up really sucky or hard to raise liek the other guys. xD

Somehow, I'm having a good run with Micaiah's (not so) Crappy Team. Nolan, Jill and Zihark were always the saving graces, though.

He looks... like he is thinking about something funny or devious... I like it! Good job!

He probably is about to a wise but sarcastic comment to Edward and Leonardo. xD

Perhaps he's caught them talking about how to impress the ladies. haha

You make him look awesome. :D (not that he isn't already! Hell, he's the second best fighter in the Dawn Brigade.)

I make him look awesome because I have to! It's like.. a part of his character! lol

He also becomes a wandering hero for people in need, which makes him even more super. xD

Just a string of awesome work from you, huh? Yeah, I like him a lot too! Very underrated!

Haha, yah. I finally decided to do a burst of higher quality artwork this week! xD

And yes, I think Nolan is very underrated. I think a lot of it is due to the fact that he is in the Dawn Brigade, and many people dislike that group. Plus.. not enough support conversations to flesh him out.

That's true, as a character he is rather lowly developed, but hey, that is a problem with a lot of Radiant Dawn, but you can only introduce new characters and develop them so much!

Hey, Mei-

Seems there was a bit of a mishap, and ol' Nolan didn't show up in the gallery. Submit again?

Great work on everybody so far. Really diggin' it.

Ah- so it is.

Perhaps it's just my internet that's all bent outta shape.
