Before and After by f-wd Before and After by f-wd
So it's been exactly 5 years (started in September 2007) since I started drawing digitally and drawing seriously, so decided to do this meme!
I wish I started way earlier haha ;v;

Riesz from Seiken Densetsu 3 (c) Square Enix

Makes me wanna do this. Nice improvement. Though sadly my traditional commissions are so Pro there's been no improvement in seven years.

I might. But the last time I saw an improvement was before I started learning Dry Brush Technique. But still. IT'd be hard to scan a vast majority of most my drawings.

Are you kidding? The story is amazing, the music is BEAUTIFUL.
I still listen to its OST's to this day ;w;

Lol I always did love her design, she isnt like the usual heroines you see in games these days, she was special ♥

Yeahhh but not very many people know this game in the US/on dA sadly ;~;
Me too, I have its OST in my itunes hehe//

Yes yes, she is such a gorgeous character!

I've wanted to draw her for a while but I always get worried that I'll ruin her somehow, whether it be forgetting something on her outfit or just making her look awkward or out of character xD

...I can see why not many people would hear about it sadly. The name would throw people off "Seiken Densetsu 3"
I mean, alot of people know the series as "Secret of Mana" in the states.

Not only that, but alot of the mana games died off long ago :c
They totally didnt deserve it, Each game is beautiful in their own way and needs more attention

Aw don't worry, it's always fun to draw a fanart of characters you like!
I realized that I forgot to draw her necklace but shhhh

Yeah, and because it wasn't officially published in the US so not very many people know about this game ;C

Square Enix should give more love to their other games too, not just Final Fantasy ;3;

TsukiHina Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
They really should of had it published...

Its bad enough Dawn of Mana never hit my island so I had to throw it on a wishlist at a second hand game store :C

This one I would have payed so much to own ;A;

Square Enix needs to revive all its older classic games..they would get so much love, so much more then their 3D stuff lately.
The storylines, the scenery and setting, the fighting styles, it was all so perfect to me.

f-wd Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2012   Digital Artist
Yeah I don't get why they didn't publish this, it's one of the best games from Squaresoft ;~;

I hope they would revive classic games too!
But I heard that staffs who worked on Seiken Densetsu 3 are no longer working for Square Enix so I think it won't happen;;

I wish they would at least port this game to DS so I can play it anywhere I want
Because I have a feeling that they would ruin it if they are going to remake it +_+;
