Journal Entry: Sun Mar 15, 2015, 6:43 PM
Hey there, folks. If you've recalled, a few days ago, i did a poll, asking for your opinion on what game characters you wanted me to draw, in terms of doing them for the first time. Now, after mch deliberation on my part, i'm happy to announce the top ten most recommended suggestions for me to draw, as i don't want to be overflowed with the many ideas in mind. As i said to you all before, they were taken under consideration, but only the best ten suggestions will be done, starting in April.
Now, for the best ten best suggested ideas from you all, folks.
1. Ryu Hayabusa from Ninja Gaiden
Ryu is definitely one of the coolest kickass ninjas that ever existed in the domain of video games, even though he comes from the hardest of video game trilogies that ever existed: Ninja Gaiden. Like many heroes, he's gone through some evolution of his own over the years, changing from his normal blue ninja outfit to a more black one and that you would see in the Dead or Alive games as well. It's unknown right now if i'll draw him in his old outfit or his current one. But he will be done, no doubt about it.
2. Mach Rider from the game of the same name
Now, that one is mostly a majorly obscure character with a cool kickass theme that would be remade in the Super Smash Bros. games. The character's true name is unknown, but his story is an interesting one, even though it comes from the golden age of games that keeps on going again and again, until your game is over.
3. Sonico from Super Sonico
This one somehow caught my attention, as while she's kinda obscure to me, she's probably isn't for the rest of you. But any lady with pink hair is awesome in my book, so there you go.
4. Vivian from Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door
Originally supposed to be a villainess in the game, this one would end up joining with Mario in his quest to rescue Princess Peach from the evil X-Nauts troops. Her invisibility powers surely helped Mario and company quite well during his quest. Plus, she's not as evil as some would claim her to be. She just... wanted to be good, nothing more.
5. Sodina from Thousand Arms
Now, i know next to nothing about that game, but the character that i was being shown to truly is a beauty in my eyes. Plus, her looks kinda reminds me of Aeris from Final Fantasy VII... or something.
6. Palutena from the Kid Icarus series
For those who've played the Kid Icarus games, you surely know who Palutena is, meaning one kickass goddess that won't back down from anything that comes her way. But back then, she was just yout typical damsel in distress, being captured by the evil Medusa. For that one, i might do her in a Crossover of Different Generations artwork, as there was a few different looks in her that saw her evolve over the years.
7. Shantae from the Shantae series
Wayforward Technologies' own mischievous genie girl and a damn popular one too. Her debut, however, mostly came in the late lifespan of the Game Boy Color handheld, making her a bit of an obscure character... at first. But despite that, she gain a loyal fanbase, wanting to see more of her in more games. And as such, her recent game was brought in on the Wii U and 3DS.
8. Ashley Robbins from Another Code
Another obscure character in my book that mostly came from a game that i'm unfamiliar with, despite having heard of it. The character herself, however, is a damn good one for me to draw, especially since she's got a mysterious past in her in some way.
9. Moogle from Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles
Of all characters that made Final Fantasy real good, the Moogle is the one creature that may truly stand out as the best representative from that game series itself. I don't know why, but despite not having played any of the Final Fantasy games (except for the two Theathythm Final Fantasy games on 3DS), the Moogle can be an easy one to draw for me.
10. Cynthia from the Pokémon series
Cynthia is truly one of the most sexiest game character that lots of Pokémon fanatics had the pleasure on seeing. And while i've not played the Pokémon games, except those of the pinball types, i have to say that Cynthia is quite alright in my book, thus she's officially gonna join those that will be drawn by me.
Well, that's the top ten game characters i plan on drawing in April. And sorry for those whose suggestions were made to me, but i don't want to overflow myself with too many ideas there. But hey, at least, i thank you enough for giving me your ideas. Anyway, expect those to be done in that specific month soon.
