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.
Please also have a look at my other fanart of BK here:

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.

Yeah, I loved Lyude in the game :)
Glad you like my work :D

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
