The Game-Art-HQ Art Challenges are both a Challenge and a Community Project that is organized through our Group on DeviantART.

GA-HQ Community Members can either claim a game or a game character of their choice if it is related to the Art Challenge Theme or get a selection of three games or characters picked for them

Vagrant Story 2015 GA-HQ Art Challenge

Vagrant Story is one of my favourite video games ever made and I can’t believe that it was never remastered or got a sequel. It was part of our Playstation Tribute in December 2014 already and this piece was actually supposed to be  for that project but as so often in our lives, things work different as planned.

Marvin Law, the artist behind it was glad that he could finish this piece for our RPG Art Challenge at least and wrote the following:

This piece features, the main character from Vagrant Story, Ashley Riot prominently in the centre, meanwhile many of the other various characters from the game, namely, Sydney Losstarot, Romeo Guildenstern, Callo Merlose and Rosencrantz are shown within the silhouette of Ashley Riot, along with a few monsters, the Minotaur and a Dragon, which seem to be iconic monsters from the game as well. 

In the background you’ll see, the city of Lea Monde, where a majority of Vagrant Story takes place, along with the Rood Inverse, which features as one of the main driving forces of the story, in the game. 

Additionally, which can’t be seen by everybody, there is actually a map of Ivalice inserted into the very back of the image, to remind people of how this game does still connect back to Final Fantasy, and it’s Ivalice Alliance series of games.
