Soul-Consuming Flame - by ozwalled

Soul-Consuming Flame




I'd debated for a while on how to tackle the Soul-Consuming Flame, and finally decided on fewer flames and sort of inner glow. I was thinking of actual images I'd seen before of lava flows, with flames poking up at their surface.

Once I'd finished the character itself though, I knew it needed SOME sort of background. I started out with the floor, which I wanted to have a dry, cracked look. I started out haphazardly not expecting much, but like the effect that I was able to get with what I did. Above him, I tried depicting a smokey, dark Fire Springs.

Making drawings based on some of EB's small sprites can pose an interesting challenge, since some sprites don't have battle images or clay models to reference.

So part of that challenge lies in trying to figure out just what a pixel or two might or might not represent. And another element of dificulty can come from trying to get away from the "short and squat", nearly "superdeformed" kind of style that those sprites were presented in, in typical old-school Nintendo fashion.

A number of the Healer's visual elements were thus "made up" based on such pixel interpretation.
