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 really loved the game, especially Mintaka, that's why I really wanted to do it as detailed as it actually is :)

I knew I recognized him!!!!

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!

Hehe, thank you ^^
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.

Haha, I'm very glad to hear that :)
You should play the game, it's quite nice, although it's pretty old by now :)

Okay, I'll add it to the list of games I'd like to play. :)
