Image of the Day - September 24, 2010

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 Gryz and Rune sketches used for the game ending. The Gryz sketch is notable for his closed fist, which was changed to an open handed wave in the final version appearing in the game. This close up of Rune is the basis for his encouragement of Chaz before departing into the wilderness.
