That's interestingly different. Nice touch with the card backs. A little odd giving her Lucia's pendant rather than the simpler one she's wearing in the artwork. I, uh, do recommend you work a bit on the breast lines. It looks like you were using the SSH portraits for your reference and they're a little weird in that regard too.

Thank you. In the Lunar I+II artbook the pendant looks different than later versions (Black and gold not only gold, as in the Newtype book, or the SSH portraits), more like Lucia's pendant, eg https://www.lunar-net.com/artbooks/artb ... oa-063.jpg. I guess it's still slightly different than Lucia's, but they're similar enough to me. Yeah, I did use the SSH portraits aside from the pendant. They were one of the things I liked best about SSH, that and the music.

SSH also had really nice city/dungeon graphics, with neat details like different towns having different interior decor. Really a shame the sprites were kind of oversized for the backgrounds.

An interesting point about the I+II artbook drawing. I did glance at it before posting but for some reason only at a very low-res version which, dear me, has a 2004 date on it so I probably grabbed it from a website (here??) which couldn't post really huge pics, or else I couldn't download them then. I really need to update my character art folders with more recent scans and images.

Xenobia was designed long before Lucia, of course. I wonder if in SSS and onward her pendant was simplified so as to not look so much like Lucia's.

The card thing is reminding me that I need to get screenshots of Brett's cards in TSS.

I'll second that the cards are a nice touch. Also, I hadn't noticed the hairband before, and I think it's rockin' in this picture.

I've wondered about this as well.

Thanks! I love fancy hairbands/headgear (and maybe Kubooka does too, since he created her in the first place.)
