    Here's a few reference shots, they're not ideal, I guess people are too busy drawing the other characters.

    Her hair is a little weird but I'd really appreciate an import. Thank you!

    I second this, as well as Palutena, Viridi, and if they can do it without making it look weird, Medusa. I would do it myself but I'm a terrible artist.

    Seconded all the way, especially Medusa and Palutena.

    Hopefully these will help for Palutena, sadly I can't find one like this for Medusa or the others yet though.

    The official artwork of Medusa. Not a profile shot, but gives a good look at her face at least.

    Ah, I've seen people asking for Palutena on /vg/ aswell. I'll give it a shot, shouldn't be too long.

    Edit:
    There you go.

    She looks great, thank you.

    I have to ask, how do you make your own hairs? I've been looking for a tutorial for just hairs but can't seem to find any.
    I'd try my hand at Medusa and Phosphora myself, if I knew how.

    Check this.
    Voltlight's being hardcore here and drawing everything from scratch, if you have a good profile shot of the character, paste it over the template (as a new layer), adapt it to the size and position of the head then draw over it.

    Wow, Palutena looks great! Think you can try Phoshora? :D

    With the current references, no. I'm not good enough to work without a good profile shot.

    I'll take a shot at Phos, it's an interesting design...I might even learn a new thing or two. Probably get something up tonight or tomorrow.

    Lol, always upload videos without music... that's my opinion.

    Also, his page has a tutorial with images... the images are hosted on imgur, so they aren't showing up... I've started migrating the images onsite... maybe 1/9 of his tutorial is visible right now.

    Okay, took a crack at Phosphora. Chance's right, there's not a lot of good ref out there...I take it she's a newer character? Anyways, I had to redraw most of her, had some trouble getting the color gradation effects in the hair so I hand painted the hair colors (made it look fire-ish). Take a look at it and see what you think, the imports and codes and everything are over in my thread (http://superdeepthroat.ryonani.com/index.php?topic=2206.0) but here's the preview:
    [​IMG]

    EDIT: I may want to move some of the layers around to cover her ear. Let me know if you want it altered. I like a little ear-peek myself. Also, it was hard to tell it her hair feather out to the sides or the back, so, there's that I guess.

    Hey, she looks pretty good! Yeah, she's from the new 3DS game. It just came out, so with time I imagine fanart and such will increase, but I'm impatient lol.

    Still searching for good reference shots for Medusa, you'd think that, as one of the primary villains, you'd find a bit more art of her.

    at 3:49 in this video there's a semi-profile shot of her from a piece of artwork that I can't seem to find the whole of.

    Well yes, but so is everyone since the last Kid Icarus game is 25 years old and the character designs have vastly changed. She's just... very forgettable.
    Look at the pokémon protagonists: B/W 2 has yet to be released and they already have a shocking amount of fanart.

    I'm more disappointed that the game is just called B/W2.

    I'm more disappointed that the game is not for the 3DS.

    These games do not need to be for the 3DS. They are sequels to Black and White, which are on the DS, and original owners of those games, such as myself, would feel cheated if they had to buy a whole new system to pick up the sequels. Nintendo is trying to get their games to as many people as possible, and the 3DS, while doing well, still isn't in nearly as many hands yet. 6th gen and RSE remakes, if they're made, will most likely be on the 3DS, when Game Freak can do more with the 3D, and not have to make a game that relies on the BW engine.

    In other news, I've finally found a couple of profile arts of Medusa, though I don't know how much help they'd be to anyone.

    Looks great, thanks TOlive! Her hair does spread out, it's kinda weird. Great job!

    The Phosphora import looks pretty good, TOlive. I believe her hair fans out in all directions, but the best way to get a really good look at it would be for someone who has the game to get her Idol (like Smash Bros trophies) and post a vid or gif of a 360 view of her head. Heck, you could angle a simple profile with it.

    So........does anyone have the game...?
