The staff member's portray:

Yes, he was the guard standing near Melek in the good ending of WC3. I'm assuming he's from the Melek's clan and therefore looks more like Melek.

I guess this is him too, right?



Of course, thanks to the models of FF14.

Fear, Terrans, for I am B'harg ko Maksga'hra K'dyapa!!!

(b'harg = red shirt (lit. "red armor"); maksga'hra = lit. "extra person"; k'dyapa = disposable / unimportant (lit. "not important") - ergo "Red Shirt the Disposable Extra".)

For my level, Melek's bowing pose is a little difficult to draw. But there was a real sense of accomplishment in actually drawing it. His talons are retracted, so they look shorter than in the original game.

The High Resolution portrait is in floor #79.

Of course, thanks to the models of FF14.

The 3rd Terran Character Portrait:

He is a common people, a classmate.

In my idea, I would like him to come across as somewhat detest the social unreasonable phenomenons, and often initiating some sharp topic.

His first class question will be: "Professor April, I'd like to know what topics are off-limits in this class."

Of course, thanks to the models of FF14.

If anything, I think this is only an issue because your scenes - at least so far - appear to be only the torso and above. But within those constraints, I think the bowing pose came across quite well - I can see what you intended to convey, at least.

Thanks for your encouragement!

Got it! I'm trying to work that out within those constraints, too. Actually, when Melek bows for the first time in this part, the text window is hidden, so players could see the portrait unobstructed.

P.S. Actually here I would like to do an exaggerated portrayal of Blair worship. In my idea, this scene shoule be actually a rewrote by Melek's staff (for the cub audiences), not a strict reduction of the actual situation. Of course, when it comes to memes specifically, I'm letting my self go, haha. As for the two memes used in this part, the Luke one is familiar to everyone, but there is another one related to Mark Hamill... do you see it?

The 4th Terran character...

Plot idea: Because of a bet with his girlfriend, this guy chose several courses to be taken with the Kats...

OK, never mind these stupid tandem plots I designed. 😹
Of course, thanks to the models of FF14 again...

The 6th Terran character is Col. Wilhelm Schwarzmont.

Edit: under optimization, please wait...

Col. Schwarzmont teaches in the Department of Military History of Confederation Fleet Academy. In 2668, He once briefly served on Admiral Tolwyn’s staff during the Earth Defense Campaign. In the story world, the novel of Action Stations is a companion piece to his yet to be completed study of the beginning of the war. "I have decided to take this format for a variety of reasons, the main one being the flexibility that it offers."

The uniform style of the Confederation doesn't seem to be exactly the same from series to series, so I played around with the original design a bit. Again, I know very little about military uniforms, so please be critical.

P.S. Well, I'm not sure that's the right way to draw this portrait (and that's why I cover the eyes of the character with the light reflection of the glasses). But I really think that's what this scholar should look like. 😹 If it's wrong to do such a design, please criticize me and I'll amend it as soon as possible. If this is acceptable, then I will color this portrait next.
