It's only taken about 16 years for me to do this in a half-decent way, but...

I actually did Flashback fanart. o.O

The problem lies with the fact that Conrad has stupid hair. Way before Cloud had evil, hard-to-draw hair, Conrad had already managed it. Mind, this is also the same guy who was smart enough to realise that aliens were living among us, yet was dim enough to actually get CAUGHT by them and shipped off to Titan. Idiot.

Now... I have a slight favour to ask anyone who's ever played Flashback... (To my knowledge that's... er... Danny! *grins* We can't be the only ones... can we?) I need a reference for Ian, as you might be able to guess. I know he's the 'generic background human to be used all of once in a quest' model, but all I have right now is my memory of the sprite to go off. I can only really remember 'blue shirt' and 'darker blue pants'.

And you can't see Ian's eyes for the sheer fact that... well... I have this sneaking suspicion that he's a lying bastard. I can't put my finger on it exactly - it might be something to do with the way he vanishes mysteriously, or that he was stupid enough to get himself caught, or perhaps to do with the fact that he never really seemed interested in actively searching Conrad out... or maybe because the fact that you found him, protected by alien guards, right where the memory machine was seemed WAY too much of a coincidence... I never, ever trusted him.

I'm still trying to think precisely what he might have been doing... but still. No faith. Whatsoever.


It's oddly nice to draw fanart for a game I've not played in years. ^_^; ...I need a decent bit of emulator software and a ROM so I can play it again.

I LOVE that game.

(I just can't be arsed to set up the Amiga and dig out the disk box to play it 'properly'... You don't realise how blessed we are in this day and age with our consoles until you embark on an Amiga disk-swapping marathon.)

It's ok, we can be the only fans of the game. That just means we rock the world due to us knowing real gaming goodness. =)

As far as Ian, I am not sure myself. I will fire up an emulator and check it out later.

Which platform would you like it in, SNES or Genesis? =) I can get you set up with either.

Love the fanart, wish I could graw as well as you can =p

I'm not sure there's much difference between the emulators other than... doesn't the colour of Conrad's T-shirt change? It's white on the Amiga, but on my friend's Megadrive it's red. o.O But I just tend to use any emulator that I can work easily. ^_^; Unlike WinUAE, which scares me. (I'm not sure any of that made sense...)

I wish I could remember where I put the manual and game box. I think we cupboarded it. :/

Drawing is only practice! *waves finger around* But I'm glad you like the pic. Hopefully I'll even finish it. ^_^;

Surprisingly perhaps, I've actually played flashback. Sadly don't remember Ian, or what the emulator I used was called...
