square enix contest - Trigger by V-lock square enix contest - Trigger by V-lock
My first entry for the Square Enix contest.
check out my other entry, Toto: [link]

So there was reason for my "I must draw in Tetsuya Nomura style" craze from a few months back. xDD

The character's nickname is Trigger, due to her numerous victories with shooting games in the arcades. I think she would be a cool hero. xD

Reasons for design
After looking at the concept art boards and the existing character art, the urban feeling of the game was the first thing that really stood out for me. And compared to previous games with the art of Nomura, the outfits are actually wearable. The design for the outfit came fast after that. I wanted to draw a hoodie so badly.

The existing characters have a rather muted, retro colour palet (with exeption of the main character, damn purple). Honestly, I tried pink at first (I'm such a girl) but that failed completely. It didn't fit in with the rest of the characters. I choose brown and orange after that, which I always find a great colour combination and fits exellent with the existing art of the game.

I hope you all like it. :3

Again, amazing! You draw those horrible zippers so well!! Her hood is precious, and baseball socks = plus! I love baseball socks! Awesome job, orange was a nice color choice.

This has to be the best one i've seen so far.
Trigger really does look like she could be in the game, and she wouldn't look out of place.
Her outfit is adorable, and IS actually wearable, like you said, and it seems to complement her personality.
I really do quite like this one.
Good Luck! :thumbsup:

This is like the only REALLY good contest entry! :D I hope you win, I don't wanna wind up playing as some crappy character who had to be edited several times just to look decent! It looks like Trigger could be put into the game right now! Awesome job.

Wow. You got the style down, that's for sure! I was looking through all the other contest entries, and they all seem to be wearing bright and happy-happy-happy colours which blind my eyes. :(
When I first saw this, I actually thought that it was a piece from Nomura, and had to do a double take! The whole concept of her outfit is really cool! It's very simple, but I like that about it. After I saw this I found myself strangely wanting to play shooting games in the arcade....
What program did you use to do the line art and colouring?
Good luck in the contest! :D

bright colours are oke, I just think they should be visible in the small things. :3
I wish it was a Nomura piece, cause then I would be Nomura and then I wouldn't be having a mental breakdown over my graduation projects. xD;
I used photoshop for the whole thing.
thanks. ;D

You used photoshop for the whole thing? Goodness... You've got skill! I tried using photoshop for a piece once... Let's just say no one ever saw the finished picture. ;)

it just takes time and practice to get it. I've been using it for 5 years now and trust me, my first drawing on it wasn't pretty either. xD

Well then good luck! XD
and hmm I place 100 bucks on this picture getting into the finals ^^
call out me if u like but that just means I'll be 100 dollars richer XD.
btw how did u learn this style? It would take me years to draw like this. -_-
(you don't have to answer this question if you don't want to, I'm just curious and I suck at drawing people XD)

no thanks to the bet. your dollar ain't that strong as my euro. xDD

I'm sad to say I've always been quite good at copying other people's styles. I drew my first drawing in Nomura style when kingdom hearts got released here and drew my second and third drawings in this style a few months back. they're in my gallery, if interested. xD
and I guess it's a style that suits me. All big lines and simplistic colouring. :3

lol, good point.

alright I'll check them out, oh and btw if u check favorites section in this contest ur pic. is like 4th place.
You are definatly going to finals ^^ so once again Good Luck!

as for the art style, true and the arms and leg structure I think is like the shins are slightly thin and the arms near the wrists are the same. But that's all I think I could be wrong. Well thnx for answering my question ^^ I'll be rooting for this pic.

I'm 4th with the favorites of the past 24 hours. All time I'm second row from below. Besides, favorites don't tell anything. The one on number all time? it was drawn in 2006. That person just changed the category of a previous existing drawing.
