First, your art, as always, is adorable. It's so cute that you have caught my attention for the game. Well done, and keep that in mind for the rest of the critique.

Your designs combine the best features of classic cartoons and modern anthropomorphs, which is a very good combination for a game. Slightly oversized hands, feet, and heads will convey action and emotion in-game. The child height and manga-style large eyes give a strong 'cute' effect, which is the greatest impact of the picture. They are very, very cute. There is enough breast/hip/waist/general femininity to add a small amount of sexiness for anyone who likes that, while not being blatant to the uninterested. I think you have hit the perfect 'all kids, some adults, offends no one' combination, if that was what you were going for.

These are some of your least original designs, since they're simple anthropomorphic animals, but you have put in a lot of style within that framework. The clothing is eye-catching and 'different', without having that FF7 impractical weirdness. Prominent but realistic accessories like bracelets and laces help with that. I hope they're able to be programmed into the final version.

Your color choices are excellent, even genius. Each character's palette is exotic enough to prevent a generic look, easily distinguishes between each character at a glance, is interesting with the constant patterned breaks between repeating colors, and matches their power theme.

One flaw concerns me. The heads, especially the eyes and mouths, are not very three dimensional. The mouths of the purple and green characters aren't three dimensional at all. This is adorable in concept art, but it may be hard for the artists translating this into the game to capture, unless you use a very limited sprite selection. Since your art is so expressive, that could be a big problem.

To sum up, justify my ratings, and echo the beginning of this critique, I like these designs a great deal. They are so cute that it hit me at a glance. For game art, that's important. Congratulations, and thank you for the pretty pictures.

First off, these concept arts look so beautiful and detailed. ^^

Anyway, for Vision, you did well with the coloring for all three of these. The lineart for all of them is so smooth, the shading is well done, and the contrast between light and dark colors is spot on.
For originality, all of these characters look super original and they all look so unique. ^^
For Technique, I love how you did the plants, the water, and the lighting for each of the character profiles the most. They have great detail, great contrast and texture, and look so vivid and bright. This can make the character stand out more, which is a good thing.
For impact, these three all look like they are ready to help out, kick butt, and take names. ^^ The tone overall can make people very pumped and excited.

Overall, you did a fabulous job on these concept arts for these three girls.
I wish you good luck on your work for Freedom Planet 2.

Thank you for letting me know. I think they did change the original art, and in such way, made a comment over the original -- a derivative work under "fair use". As long as they do not claim my original art as theirs, I don't count it as stealing. Of course, the way they choose to have fun with my art seemed a little rude, but I don't mind and was actually amused by its silliness. XD

I kinda miss the way you drew Lilac's nose in your FP1 drawings of her but these are still great! Really glad you are doing the art for the sequel. I was hoping you would do official stuff for Freedom Planet since I say those first few drawing of the characters. I especially love the way Carol is drawn in the FP2 art! She looks so badass! I love her!

Ask yourself. "Would Carol wear makeup?"

The red above her eye looks like that. (Not that it looks bad!)
But I would guess she wouldn't do that. Maybe for a special reason, but not daily.

A really small detail, but you'll need every single piece. You can not afford to waste anything to tell what you want. (not just the text. Everything. Every single texture, sound, music, even the level design)
A strong narrative for a game like this is your most special thing. And you are the ones who can do that. (you already proved that you have the skills, but you need to use it more)
