When plotting the cutscenes of Phantasy Star IV, the staff at Sega drew references by hand before creating them as 16-bit, sprite based gaming graphics on a computer. In this example, we can see two views of Rika. In the upper sketch, she leans out the door of the Landale as it hovers over Chaz and Rune. A joyful expression crosses her face as the wind lifts her hair. The lower sketch does not appear to have been used during the game.

It's a shame, it's a really great shot of her. :(

The second Rika is really a great drawing. I wonder what she's thinking :shiftyeyes:

I think the second drawing is when she's looking back at wren and raja before jumping out of the landale.

Do you mean this one?

I didn't think it was that one at first. After a closer look, it does seem to match up. If it is the same, they mirrored the art. That threw me off.

Yes that's the one. Although her look looks a bit softer in the actual game screen now that I look at them side by side.

I love these Rika sketches, looking at them kinda makes me think they’re should have at least been a PSIV manga.

The artists that did these could have definitely made a great manga. It's a shame Sega didn't take advantage of marketing opportunities like that at the time.
