Primal

Journal Entry: Thu Jun 28, 2012, 11:53 AM
  • Listening to: Primal Soundtrack for inspiration
  • Watching: My computer screen as I paint a new digital piece
Okay so recently I found my old Primal game and realized how amazing the game was. So After a lot of other fan art pieces I've worked on for the game, I realized that I hadn't done anything based on the game in so long. I look the time to come up with an alternative idea of the main character Jen. And tried to mix it up a bit. My goal was to create to fan pieces for the game because I feel like its such a classic that it still deserves the attention.

I'm not working on a more subtle piece on the game using pure light as my pain effect. Its given me a character to draw and practice my digital art as I'm still learning so much everyday.

Do anyone else love the Primal game?  And do you have your own thoughts on what a sequel to the game should be about?

My favourite game. Really, since 2003! :XD:
I believe you already know my thoughts about your Primal art (and overall, I mean, you're just brilliant!) and I am so glad that someone keeps creating art for this game. Thank you for being an amazing fan! :tighthug: (I'm not thanking you for being my fan it's for being... "oh shut up" :ashamed:)

SEQUEL!!! Sequel, sequel, sequel... I have had sooooo many ideas about a possible sequel and all of them are awesome. I have imagined so much, from exploring the 4 realms further to exploring new realms, exploring the Nexus and breaking all the rules... Arella not being as "good" as she seems... oh my imagination is limitless :XD: (of course, it is).
Have you had any ideas about a sequel?
I have read that the planed sequel was going to be about Lewis going through all these challenges so that he could go back to his body in Mortalis.

aaawww :aww: thank you so much! :thanks: I just loved the game so much! I just wish there was a second game. That would have been so cool to see Lewis in the realms. In my opinion they did leave it open at the end when Lewis is in the coma in hospital.

I think the game's art has just inspired me to come up with some fan art, the concept art and design of the game was just flawless. Jen's character is one I wished could have became iconic because she's so funny and witty and people relate to her character.

My idea for a sequel and where I kinda went with my recent fan art, was Jen being sent back to oblivion, Lewis never recovered from the coma and in ways she's peed off and angry with everything, loosing Lewis makes her different but not in a good way, and something inside her changes hens my Primal Piece - Unknown power. But there's a war between realms and Jen has the option in game of which realm she chooses to protect. In ways a Mass Effect game decision idea. You get to choose your own path.

Which ever way you choose to play effects the realms in different ways. Her decision effects Jen's character either corrupting her or making her more pure. Also there are other realms and new demon forms to posses! One demon form i've had in mind is one similar to a spider giving Jen the ability to climb walls as scree would not be in the game :(

I could talk all day haha! :blahblah: its why im studying Game Art & Game Animation and Character 3D modeling this year! My passion for gaming just overpowers me!! hehe!!!

Waw! I see our ideas for a sequel are not so different! Agh! LOVE IT!!

Jen is a fantastic character. She is not all heroic and "I'm good and I am right" she is unsure of herself and her powers, she is not conceited, she throws jokes into the air at wrong times and ends up being incredibly funny :D I absolutely adore her.
It makes me sad that when you mention female characters from video games everybody thinks "Lara Croft" but no one thinks Jennifer Tate or Amanda Evert (awesome character that every Lara fanboy hates... of course I would have to adore Amanda :XD:)... or Alice Liddel. Anyway...

I think if they made a sequel of Primal it would be awesome again; one just cannot go wrong with such fantastic characters and worlds, don't you think?

I could listen to you all day! As long as all the conversations return to Primal :XD:
Unless you are like a lad I met a few weeks ago that thinks just because I'm a girl I must not be a great gamer... >.>

Anyway! :tighthug:

I agree she is funny and different to any other female characters, She has that awkwardness about her that makes her unique, Her jokes and things she says are just what game characters need. :D

I am a Lara fan, but mainly because it takes me back to when I was like 6 and it was the first game I fell in love with, but I am glad to be getting a Lara Reboot. Just hope they make her more interesting tbh. :/

And nope...I'm not like that lad you met, my sister would kill me if I were like that, We both grew up playing computer games together and she loves Primal too! She's the one that thought of the pink aura because it represents girl power in a way. :) I wrote and essay for university on how games are changing to balance female and male gamers, Like how Lara's changed now from being a rather busty character with not much to her, I feel like there focusing more on Lara's personality which I strongly agree with. :) But i feel like Jen was the most interesting female character she was just so normal and relateable

Oh I am glad!!! :hug:
There are these lads that, when a girl doesn't like a certain game, they are like "Of course, you're a girl. It's only normal." and I am judged for liking Raiden from Metal Gear because he is handsome and not because he is a traumatised and fantastic character. You see?
Ah well, maybe I'll get used to it one day and not care about such comments.

Heh! My first video game was actually Primal :XD:
I do not dislike Lara, but I don't think she's the most interesting female character ever created.

Oh, that is nice!
And I agree with you on that as well, Lara's personality has, indeed, grown with time, but now some of the fans are complaining because she whines too much (I do not understand these people). Characters can have their moments just like people, otherwise they would be robotic.

P.S. Hug your sister for me :hug:

Primal was my first PS2 game I played, and I remember how amazed I was with the game. It sucked me in from the very moment of the intro and didn't stop until the credits roled. the characters, the locations, the powers, the voice acting, the atmosphere, the music, everything was just so...perfect! It's truly an underrated gem. :D

But i'm afraid there won't be any sequel. It's officially stated so. Plus, the voice actor of Scree died, so it wouldn't be that same without the same voice actors to me. Hoever, they still has some leftover cncpets of the sequel they where making, before they cancelled it. Wanna see for yourself? Here's the link: [link]

And If I may suggest a idea for your next Primal drawing...

I was thinking you could draw all four demons forms of Jen! And with the human Jen in the middle to add the touch of it. That would swell! And it would give you a chance to experiment more with lighting. Such as Green (Ferai) Blue (Aqua) Purple (Wraith) and Orange (Djin) :)
