Leaving Mintaka by Jennyeight Leaving Mintaka by Jennyeight
Fanart of Lyude, a character of the Game Baten Kaitos. Character belongs to Namco.
Mintaka is his hometown, but when the Empire starts to tyrannize the other countries, he tags along with the protagonist of the game to fight against his own county.
The game is a little bit of both, Steampunk and fantasy. It's quite old by now, but I still like it pretty much :)
I mainly used SAI PaintTool for this one, some parts also done with Photoshop CS2 and CS5 and Corel Painter 12. The flame and smoke effects were done with Flame Painter.
The original fanart and game screenshots I used as reference can be found here:

I'm sorry for the bad quality, but in the middle of the painting process Flame Painter didn't save it correctly (well, of course I didn't save it correctly, but didn't notice it), so on some parts the resolution is quite bad.

I must say that I'm really impressed with all the nice details that you've placed in this drawing and together with Lyude's facial expression which shows concern and seriousness, I think you've captured the vibe pretty well...

that, and I loved to see how you've worked all the way up from just that sketch to adding details and then finishing the artwork ;w; it's truly amazing! <3

Wow Lyude! I haven't thought of Baten Kaitos in a while, it was a fantastic game. Your work is fantastic, you've captured him perfectly! I cried when he cried in the game.

Holy moly, this may be the best piece of Lyude I've ever seen (and I'm not to fond of the character, but this is great). You sure know how to draw Mintaka perfectly too! :D It's so nice to have a Baten Kaitos piece realized for a large portion of the DA community, since as I'm sure you know, the game was underated and obscure to most. I really like the way you drew his eyes. :D

I loved baten kaitos!!!....Admittedly...didn't like Lyude himself so much....Loved Savyna and Gibari....

Great picture you did an amazing job with the background and everything!

To be honest, I hated Savina, because it's quite hard to get really good combos with her, but Gibari was always my man, together with Luyde and Kalas :)

I usually used Xehla [after she got her more dark/fire based attacks] Kalas and Savyna.

I always had really good luck getting combos down with her. The biggest problem was timing it since she was really fast, keeping up was the difficulty. Once I got a hang of that I loved her x3

I remember seeing a trailer for this game but I never played it. I'm beginning to regret that, the character design looks lovely. Of course, given your skills you can probably make any design look gorgeous but I it still makes me curious about the game.

Oh wow, I loved Baten Kaitos and Lyude was actually my favourite, so it's really cool to come across some fanart of him! c:
In any cause this is really beautiful. I especially like the details on his jacket and on the metals in the background.

I was crazy excited to see this piece in the DD's. I completely love this game and I thought Lyude's character could have had a little... more. I love this piece. His features are very real compared to the style in the game. The colors are fantastic.

Yeah, actually Lyude is only a side character, that's one of the reasons why I wanted him as protagonist of this fanpiece :)
