Mr. Bateson by Robaato Mr. Bateson by Robaato
Quick sketch I did last week of Breath of Fire 2ís Ryu. Breath of Fire 2 is probably my favorite BoF. And Yoshikawa is high up there on my list of favorite artists.

Took about 20-25 minutes, I think.

Could you do a remake of this? It has LOTS of potential. BTW, this was a classic game ^.^

This is definitely favorite BOF Ryu. They seriously need to make another BOF game. It's LONG overdue.

Ahh, Breath of Fire. That series needs more love, ESPECIALLY in the face of what Capcom has planned for it!

Also, why did America feel the need to change Ryu into that hyper-masculine 'roid-monkey on the cover of the US boxes of BoF 2? This guy looks cool as he is!

I never played 2 but I did play a bit of 3 and now the battle theme from it is playing in my head.

Man I was just playing this game a couple days ago. Crappy localization but still a top-notch console RPG of the old school. Never could figure out why Ryu chucks his sword at bad guys - weirdest attack animation I think I've ever seen.

I like the scribbly look here.

Pretty sweet, although I must admit I'm more fond Yoshikawa's designs in Breath of Fire 4. I think they hit that perfect level of detail and simplicity. Plus they translate really well into sprites.

Yoshikawa's a boss all around, from his old school anime era to the more simplistic modern style. :nod:

His last name is "Bateson"? Huh. I never knew that. (Not that he had much of any official name in the SNES release, mind you.) You planning a full set of the hero characters? If so, I am very much looking forward to Nina. :)

To be honest my favorite was BoF 4, but maybe it's because it was the first one I've played of the series...

I think that the rating of goodness of Bod games in my case is as follows: BoF 4 > BoF 3 > BoF 2 > BoF > BoF 5 where BoF 5 is utter crap X( I mean why the hell they've made it a timed game? I hate those X|
