PoT/FE - Tezuka and Echizen

Concept Art:

Echizen took maybe 1.5 hours and Tezuka was about 2 hours (so that makes Hyotei by far the hardest group to do… Well, Atobe and Oshitari at least, and I was so-so with Rikkai, but they were the first group that I had ever done…) At least I've come up with a few small tricks to make things go faster (but nothing makes changing the color around fancy trimming faster X.X). ANYWAYS, with Lord Tezuka (Bow Paladin - his horse isn't around this picture though) and Swordmaster Echizen, I am done with all of the FE concept art \o/ !!!!!!!!!!!!! Fyi, last two I did was at the end of September and posted on the 1st of October. TIME FLYING AWAY, WHAT?!

You know what's crazier? I've been working on PoT/FE since May 2011. What's craziest is that I thought, up until a few days ago, that I was still unfinished on Ch. 3 and the middle transition paragraphs of Ch. 8 until I was reading something out of a journal untouched since the summer and some paper fell out… one of which that had the ending paragraphs of Ch. 3. Which means that I've been done with the main story since October-ish and haven't touched until last week because I've been working on the prequel.

Click for larger picture.

As I picked people for Seigaku, I noticed they all had the tattered cape/simple clothing look, which was hilarious since I was choosing art based on their fighter class. And almost all of them had blue and/or red (with the exception of Kaidou, but hey, he's Kaidou). I had to change Tezuka's coat from purple-ish to blue though. I do like how Seigaku and Hyotei have their country's colors. Only Sanada (black and gold armor, red cape), the Wyvern Lord (black armor), and Yagyuu (black clothes) represent Rikkai, which is appropriate seeing they are the highest ranking soldiers. Shitenhouji doesn't have anyone with their colors XDDD

What's going on right now?

1) School (came up with some new things for my 6th grade brass kids to get stickers for)

2) Typing/Editing PoT/FE (Part 4 - Chapter 3 has been a ***** to edit…) (To edit: 3, 5, 9, 10) (To type from journal: 6, 8, 11) (Typed and Triple Checked: 1, 2, 4, 7)

3) Fire Emblem: New Mystery of the Emblem (completed the game last night!!! Post with screenshots sometime)

4) Writing Japan Trip entries (so many things to type!)

5) Writing PoT/FE's Prequel (over halfway through since before Japan Trip, but now I'm getting some progress on it during my break at school)

6) HS Musical Rehearsal (every other weekend) and HS Pep Band (every week on Friday or Tuesday)

7) Fire Emblem: Awakening comes out February 4 and I'm getting the Cobalt Blue Nintendo 3DS bundle pack akl;flask;jfask;jf;sj

8) Need to find a second part-time job to make ends meet. =.=

Ryoma as Ike?? XDDD but Ike is so muscular PoR version's not bad though. I can't imagine Ryoma with Ike's body from Radiant Dawn. XD Nice that Seigaku characters got their Seigaku colors. :D Tattered clothes, huh... That is pretty funny. XD

Ahhhh, you finished Shin Monshou! I'm only on chapter 17. Unexpectedly got really busy this week. Only two days left until Awakening's official release date, ahhhhh. I don't think I'll finish Shin Monshou before Awakening's released now (and some stores are even getting the game early... I'm going to check tomorrow to see if my store has the game in stock yet). I look forward to seeing who ended up on your end team! :D I wasn't going to train Minerva, Sirius, or Julian, but I read that they have to be brought along to recruit the four bishops at the end. Darn. So now I'm starting to train them a bit, hoping it'll be enough to keep them alive. |D;; Don't want characters dying on me during the last chapter!

PoT/FE has turned out so epic. <3333 How many words is it now?!

XDDD Yeah, but there weren't really any sword wielders I had available as art that worked. If my Photoshop skills were better, I would have considered shrinking his muscle mass /rolls around

Seigaku got tattered clothes, Hyotei is fancy rich, Rikkai is sort of a mix (because you have the ones from the military and then the ones recruited from other countries), and Shitenhouji is nice casual. Amazing how things work out! \o/

I was on Ch. 19 earlier this week and told myself to beat the game ahahah. Release date so close!!! /o\ Mine's an online preorder because the nearest GameStop is 30 minutes away and I have school on Monday. Oooo, I hope yours has it early!
You don't have to train Minerva, Sirius, or Julian if you are on normal. All of your other units will be overpowered enough to handle all of the dragons and you don't have to rush to get up there to rescue to them.

216,000 words through Ch. 2 on ff.net (minus about 10,000 worth of author's notes?) with 9 chapters left to be posted. Btw, I have your book to ship to you. Would you be able to pay shipping ($1.50 from them to me and $3.50 from me to you = $5)?

Ryoma has sure buffed up. |D;;;

Yes, that worked out really well! Casual Shitenhouji. :)

I kind of wish I had chosen to have Awakening sent to me! I chose to pick up in store, and now I have to keep checking to see when they get the game. The dates are all over the place!

Ah, really? Even if Julian is at such a low level that he can't even survive one hit? XD; Though I guess I usually keep him out of harm's way even when I use him for raiding treasure chests.

10k of author notes? XD;;; Wow, only 9 chapters left. Good luck!!

$5 is doable. I can't wait. Let me know when I should send you the money. Paypal is okay, right?

He's still mada mada dane ;)

My whole universe seemed to work itself out in ways that I didn't come up with. Crazy universe. Someone else said their store won't have it until 2/5... I wonder why the dates are everywhere?

I kept them out of range the entire time and cleared all of the enemies before talking to the bishops one at a time. Because you need a rescue staff to get your talker out of harm's way... otherwise the boss would smite them. How I wish units could rescue each other!

It was a guess... Maybe there's like 6,000 words of author's notes? Everything is written - just needs to be typed and/or edited. The last chapter is soooooooo long omg. I think it might require a split, but I'll know when I get there.

Just finished packaging it. I'll be shipping it on Monday and then can let you know the cost, but I'm sure it's going to come out around $3ish for weight. I'll go PM you my Paypal now.

The universe working out just like that is so perfect. <333

The shipments for Awakening really are all over the place. It seems that Gamestop doesn't get shipments during the weekend, so the 2/4 Monday release date was off from the beginning... and there's something about how they only get Nintendo games on certain days? So the 2/5 date seems more accurate. But then some stores have gotten their shipments early... I have no idea now. @___@ I just want a confirmed date so I can put aside time to make a trip to the store on that day!! Since I'm supposed to pick up the game within 2 days of it arriving. =/

Ah, sounds like I can keep them alive just fine then. XD; I probably won't train Minerva or Sirius much then... I did want to train Julian, so I'm using him a bit more now. It's difficult to train him so late though because by this point in the game (with his current level), he deals 0 damage with an E weapon rank.... XD I did finally get him to D in swords after a bit, so now he can kill enemies and gain experience better!

Oh, I can't wait! <3 I got your PM~

That petulant little face on that grown up body :-) LOL...oh, Ryoma...

Wow, you are so busy! And have gotten so much accomplished!!

Yay!!! *hugs you*

Tezuka as Klein is a rather perfect combination. Even their personalities are similar. Lol.

Echizen fights for his friends....not. Lol I was thinking how he would like being in a taller body like Ike's. Crazy how all the Seigaku peeps matched quite a bit in the end.

And once again you are chin deep in things to do. YOU CAN DO IT HYMN!! *cheers*
