::PSO SERIES 2 - HUmar:: by martinhoulden ::PSO SERIES 2 - HUmar:: by martinhoulden
Picture 4 in the PSO Series 2 2009 - 4 of 12!

My character! Well, the one I played as the most - even recently on restarting it over at [link] , I ended up picking this one again. I think its probably my favourite design, and I generally like versatility when it comes to customisation - HUmar is definately the most generic and all-round XD

And I couldnt turn down an oppurtunity to draw the dragon from Episode 1 - a legendary gaming scene which, whilst now quite dated, felt fantastic at the time.

I'm really trying to push narrative in these pics, as I dont have enough practice at it. It's all too easy to have the narrative of "trying to look badass", hehe.

Hope you enjoy! All comments welcome and appreciated. Thanks for looking.

Check out the other characters in the gallery:

God, how your works inspire me to play BB again after so long. Guess it's time to start a HUmar!

And I never think of PSO as dated... excpet when I'm trying to convince others it's worth playing. Some people just don't know...! *sigh*

lol, i know what you mean. But then i describe to them what its like to play and they get interested! I guess maybe the visuals are a hurdle ...

Yeah. I did manage to find one person who doesnt mind the graphics. One out of everyone I know. -_-

But I'm sure they'll all happily jump on the bandwagon when PSO2 comes out. Have you seen any gameplay? Just... ugh! :faint:

You're welcome. PSO is one of my favorite games and the drawings you did reminded me so much of why I do. Hopefully you'll have some more!!

Man, Humar doesn't get much love recently, but this seems to be acceptable compensation for it. =P

...even though i'm a HuCast fella...

Excellent job on the HUmar expression, dragon's head, and impression of movement. *thumbs up*

Hmm... did you change the face, with this last update? I remember that there was something that made me lift an eyebrow, last time I saw this, and I think it had somethin' to do with his facial expression.

*scratches his head* BAH, can't remember it. Either way, whatever you did, it looks great now. :3

Ah the good ol' days of Phantasy Star Offline. (Yeah I played offline quite a bit.)
It's still one of the most fantastic memories from back in the day. The dragon hitting the ground and screeching as the screen shook at its ferocity. You were like
'HOLY CRAP WHAT DID I DO WRONG!?' Much love.
Great pic. I enjoy what you did with it a lot, and also I'm a huMAR whore as well. XD

That is pure awesome!

I love how PSO allows for a mixture of technology and magic, so much that no one complains about using photon weaponry against a dragon.

The expression on his face just says about everything every n00b back in the day would say the first time they got to the dragon.

Great Job.
