What, that piece of clothing is ESSENTIAL. It makes Joshua seems more John Rambo! :lol:

The categories are too broad for me to decide on one. Really, it all comes to the work of the artist involved and how it would fit into the context of the game.

Some that particularly stand out to me include:

Katamari Damacy

Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne
Image
Mark of Kri
Image
Earthworm Jim
Image
Disciples II: Dark Prophecy
Image

I guess I lean towards stylized art more than realism. Variety is helpful in expanding the audience. Abstract art is hard to understand/relate to (although I'll admit some are aesthetically pleasing), thus rarely has a place in games.

Got in touch with a new colorist who is coloring the Seasons Of The Wolf images (and probably will use him for other RPGs). He can also do a more painterly style:

I was thinking if to use this style for the game CGs... it would be different from the game main coloring style, but would look cool, a bit like The Witcher or other RPGs. Of course would be much more expensive so I'm still thinking about it :mrgreen:
(note that I'm talking only about the COLORING style, not the style of the lineart or anatomy or anything).

Wow, amazing coloring! The artist of this must be very talented, I would love to see his/her color art for games! :D
Every rule has an exception. Even this one.

Wow that looks incredible, the new colorist is very talented indeed, might be more expensive, but if you can I'd hold on to this one!

Is the same guy that colored the Seasons Of The Wolf characters, but he showed me this other image as different style, so I started thinking how to use it, for sure not for the sprites since would look out of place, but for the CGs maybe yes.

I like the idea for using it for the CG's, should try it.
