This was drawn as a promotional poster for the webcomic, Amya. I am 100% unfamiliar with Fire Emblem and its characters, and any similarities in their designs is just a strange coincidence!

For whatever reason this one's really distorted when not fullviewed - just a note! This here is another poster drawn for the webcomic, Amya. asdfghjk not much to say about this one except that it took two days and I really love its results (Faye's hair can be pretty nuts)! Here's a look at its humble beginnings: [link]

Wow this is really beautiful. Especially the colors. I wish I could learn something about colors from you. *_*

I'm so glad you like them!  I'm afraid I'm terrible at explaining my process, but in hopes that this helps you:

(Link goes to a step-by-step GIF):  i43.tinypic.com/mru54y.jpg

When you don't need to be grounded by realistic colors (as with this illustration), limiting the color palette to a couple of strong choices is a great way to make them stand out.  I basically used two main colors (the saturated red and light blue), blended them a bunch in the background, then used those same colors to add shadows and highlights to the characters.

Thank you so much! :D
I really appreciate the advice. And that gif is actually extremely helpful! It's also extremely nice of you to help me out! ^_^

This is really nice. The colours look really nice together! I wish I wasn't so artistically colour blind when it came to my own works. ^^;

You probs don't wanna hear, but it's really cool how much they look Fire Emblem. Even if it wasn't intended, Fire Emblem has amazing outfits, and so does this art!

I was gonna say how much I love Fire Emblem, then I read the description. It's still a super amazing picture though! (I actually came here from the Amya website!)

Love it when I first saw it and still love it today (sorry I was too lazy to sign in and comment before :X)

The outfits are gorgeous! And I absolutely love the wind affect and the colors!

Thank you! I'm glad you liked the colors. :B

Graceful. Wholesome. Lush. Surreal. EPIC.

Also love the fact that the colour theory, character design and the movement of the various forms are harmonious with each other, really adding a sense of trialed reconcilation (with a eventual positive outcome I think :heart:). Thanks a lot for the very powerful effort here! :iconhugglesplz:
