I never said the current was bad. I said I adored the current art. And I agree. Miriam is indeed a cutie.

EDIT: SUNLIIIIIIIIIIIGHT!!! $850,000 reached!

It is not Dawn of Sorrow or Portrait of Ruin's artwork, so it passes that test. All the revealed characters stand out and none of them are bland. Miriam in particular stands out with her unique dress, the horns, her gradient hair, and the odd patterns on her skin that are clearly meant to evoke images of stained glass windows. She's instantly recognizable. Gebel is the same way, his crystallized body giving an element of unease to it. I also wanna see some more monster design as CV was great with those.

PS 850K hit, Hayter is in

That's an extremely unprofessional way of handling the artwork, though. If there is another artist creating art for the game, and hell, they are in the middle of it, they shouldn't just replace the artist. As much as I love Ayami, if IGA let it slide and they got rid of the current artist when they've already put out pieces, I'd lose respect for IGA.

Well so long as IGA made sure to pay the artist in full as well as release his/her previous artwork in a artbook or something alongside the game I think it would be cool, I certainly would not lose any respect for IGA for going with the better artist for his vision, after all the teamup or IGA,Ayami,And Michiru is well synonyms with the CV series.

Hmmm... I can possibly make a cross stitch work out of Gebel... but I need a cleaner image.

I feel this is appropriate for right now, and this game.

I've been watching the podcast and IGA says that this game would take 18 months to 2 years to make.
SotN took about 3 years.

So IGA decided to create another protagonist who is not only a female, but is also a whip wielder?? YES!! IGA, you're getting better and better at this.

I don't mind the art style either. She looks good. At least it's not another goddamned pretty boy protagonist, Jesus...

I have no idea why there's so much hate of the artwork.

Yeah, it's not Ayami Kojima. (actually, who is the lead artist?) IGA tried to get her and couldn't.

But this art style seems like it is a mesh of Rondo of Blood and Order of Ecclesia. I don't see how that's a bad backup.

Agreed here. I think the art is fine.

Wow!  Exciting stuff!  Instead of working all day, I spend the day with my migrained head buried in my pillows.  After a quick look at the KS, I have two questions:

1 - Any opinions on physical vs. digital copies?  I see that plans offer one, the other, or both.  Why would someone want both?  Isn't one or the other just fine?

2 - I don't have time (or desire yet...still fighting off the migraine...it's a doozie!) to catch up on 10+ pages...would someone who's been here tell me what's the general consensus?  Good, bad?

THAT would be fucking epic
