The Astral Flow Duo back at it again and looking more refined than on 3DS.
I missed the oc antics.
Same initial party as on 3DS, as well, albeit ever so slightly more accurate to their true designs. Azure, Silvia, Lana, and Mira is a frequent quartet that I like to use. Gonna change things up in the next part, tho.
Was able to make a really solid version of my oc Lana in the Monster Hunter Stories 2 demo. Really happy with how she turned out, and the setting of the demo fits with her role in Ride the Winds!, too.
I wanna post some pics from Stories 2 again. I got to test making Azure and Silvia for side files this afternoon. Azure looks just as on-point as he did in the first game, more on-point than in any other game to date.
If I had to nitpick anything about this, it'd be that his bangs are sitting toward the opposite direction and that he could use some more hair in the back. That's literally it.
And now... Silvia. She was the best yet in the first game, but she's even better here.
HER HAIR COLOR IS FINALLY CORRECT! FOR THE FIRST EVER TIME!!!! HELL YEAAH! This is the best she's ever looked in anything I've made her in. Typically I go for longer hair on her, like so:
And that's also a more accurate style on her, but as you can see, the second color option isn't correct. Pretty much like how it was in Miitopia.
Fortunately, the first option with the correct highlight type is still a style she's used before, and it's also how she keeps her hair when she's young, so it fits for the age of the protag of the game. So either style is a win for her, but the top one is a better win because accurate hair color finally.
The game's character creator still feels like an oversimplified 3DS creator, but the options are just too good for my main ocs. Man. I'm so happy I could cry.
Anyway, here's some more of Lana from my main file.
