Hi, I’m Onmi. Some of you may know me as the guy who was working on an FE6 update that was at the time titled ‘Divine War’. You may have assumed the project died, it didn’t, I simply preferred not to be on Serenes anymore, as well as not wanting to join FEU until I had the project basically completed. Which I do now.
Basically completed because we’re still getting the last few remaining art assets together… which is where I have a problem. See this christmas is the planned release date for the now titled “Maiden of Darkness” demo, since inception the project has never had a portrait artist, we’ve gotten by with bouncing around to people who have free time. However when you have a release date you’re actually approaching, you can’t afford to simply run about headlessly hoping that someone with free time will drop something into your lap.
While the project needs a few portraits still, for the sake of the demo, we only require 2 more portraits. Those would be for Nino and Mary. So I am putting out a request here for any portrait artists willing to lend aid. I cannot offer compensation, so I realize this comes off as selfish, the only thing your help provides is getting the project actually out and into peoples hands to be playable.
I can also understand if you fear that your work will be wasted, what if the project doesn’t come out? That’s why I have waited till now to request. I make no bones when I say the project is approaching its end date. There are a few odds and ends to be cleaned up but otherwise the only thing truly holding back a release is portraits. If you are interested, I would be most grateful for the aid. As a visual guideline on the custom portraits here are two others that have been completed,
Mary - Female Fighter/24/Western Isles Native/Wards Older Sister
Notable Features: Brown hair, A Red or Green colour scheme. Has a headband. She is a fighter, so she shouldn’t be a twig.
‘Iris’ - Female Sage/34/Actually Nino
Notable Features: She should have a pendant and still be recognizable as Nino 20 years later, as the characters who have previously met her can recognize her.
EDIT: I would like to point out that these are merely the portraits necessary for the demo, the portraits in full that I require are.
For the main game: Elimine, Hamon, Barrigan, Hartmut. Roy (Promoted), Lilina (Promoted), Guinevere (Promoted), Wolt (Promoted), Elphin (Promoted), Boss portraits IF I don’t just wind up ripping them from FE8. Rebecca, Matthew, Pent, Louise, Serra, Heath, Vaida.
In these cases these are enemies or NPCs, hence why I don’t necessarily need them for the demo. And yes I can have portraits change on promotion, this is because for my hack, Supports are event based, so I can have them use custom music and give items and money and things like that normal supports can’t do. But similar to enemy portraits, I don’t need the promoted portraits for a demo
