This looks damn good! I am very pleased with the attention to detail on the grays. I wouldn't change anything on it myself. I just want to see it in a frame. If I can ask a favor, can you post a picture of the other side. I know it would look backwards but im really interested in what the other side looks like with the added texture of the beads. Again, way to knock it out of the park. This is a great piece. Hats off. Lol, it is forcing me to write 100 words. Since that is the case, please pick a SF2 sprite and I will do it.
What do you think?

Oh my god! Love Shining Force. Wish they'd make a direct sequel with some of the original cast. Miss Sega Games.

That would be pretty bad ass. I'd be happy with just a new Shining Force PERIOD at this point.

Nah, he's the easiest. Max can kill all three heads of dark dragon all by himself. With one person each taking out the skull warriors and max fighting dark dragon, it's the easiest fight in the game, and any shining force game.

->was able to kill Zeon in 5 turns with Slade/Gisarme without taking out any mobs except the blue shaman<- I'd have to call Zeon much easier. Although by rights I had an overly abundant amount of dodge/counter/second attacks.

If you're playing him on easy mode, sure, Zeon would've been easier. Read my other post where I explain why and what happens during a dark dragon fight. So long as you never have any other characters near dark dragon, you can have max go up to each head and kill them easily by himself, and dark dragon will only attack him, never use soul breath. I think.

Oh I've done it on every setting except Ouch, haha (Although I don't know why, I never found ouch too dificult {Coding issue or some nonsense compared to Super, wasn't it?}, just never finished that file! my Genesis died) Maybe it's just from years of playing it and then trying out other games in the series? Kinda like I used to fly through the levels in Mario bros., yet now, 15 years later I can't even beat world 6-1, lol! By rights, I never actually liked the original Shining Force (Dunno why, just my thoughts) so that may have added to the difficulty for myself.

Ummmm, dude, he was easy as hell. Max at promoted lvl 15 could kill all three heads by himself.

Well I don't know how you did it but I had to keep Max out the way and I think he was higher than lvl 15, WITH the Chaos Breaker! I used mainly Luke, Gort, Zylo and Musashi. And even like that, it took a while.

Well you probably thought that swarming dark Dragon with your team mates was a good idea, only to get demon breathed to death. If you send Max in by himself, he has a high chance of getting double attacks, and critical hits, and either way, it his attacks took sizable chunks out of Dark Dragon's lifebar, and dark dragon would only attack Max and do little to no damage at all.

I have no idea why I first sent Max in to fight Dark Dragon by himself, but it worked, and it worked well. I thought maybe it was a fluke or something, so I went and played and beat the game several more times. Same thing happened every time. Max gets 2 attacks, very high likelihood of a critical, and dark dragon only attacked him rather than use demon breath.


Besides, wouldn't you like to see Max's special finish on Dark Dragon anyway? The only way to do that is to..... have Max finish him off :)

A special finish? I didn't even know about that! No, for me it was totally different. I used Max as my main fighter throughout the game and leveled him up quite a bit but at about the last 2 chapters or so for some reason, like Blue and Kokichi he just kept getting murdered with a couple of hits and I couldn't figure out why and because of this, I couldn't level him up any more because he couldn't survive ANY encounters, and Dark Dragon was no exception. I sent Max and a few others in at him but he just singled Max out and killed almost with no effort at all. So with that, I had to do what I always did and just surround his ass and whale on him. Took a while but eventually I did it, and I don't think I'll ever play that game again.

Wait.... wut.... I mean, did you play the genesis version or the Gameboy Advance version? The Genesis version was easy dude. It was just time consuming. If you didn't properly level up and equip all the best weapons, you were getting raped. Dark Sol was harder than Dark Dragon. I wish I could make a video of this, but Sega's been taking them down anyway.

Really? I played the MegaDrive version on Sega MegaDrive: Ultimate Collection on Xbox 360. And I leveled up the characters as much as possible and equipped all the best weapons. The game was retardedly difficult. I suck at that type of game though, but other people tell me fighting games are hard but I kick ass on them.

Maybe you accidentally put the game on the hardest difficulty level. On normal, the game is a friggin breeze. Or maybe the game was adjusted to be harder on the updated system. You may want to get an emulator and play the game again, it's so fucking retardedly easy. The easiest Shining force hands down.
