    Sorry there seem to be no bigger one. At least not now. Ryuou had said he would make bigger ones but still not yet.

    I've seen the image before... larger.
    I think it was on an auction with YJ.... or around AN.

    Sorry I can't be of more help than that. Try using shoppingmalljapan to look around.

    There are at least 7 art books. The problem is that they are extremely rare and valueable. You can only find them at auctions.

    I have already a product page in the works since we can't change AN's list now. As it turns out I don't have enough space or high enough limits to store big pictures on the net...

    Once a member from AN posted his great scan archive...(need to look.)

    Looks nice, where's this one coming from, who's the author?

    Someone realy need to grab at least couple of those art books...i'd be real happy to see some real artist work, more detailed and stuff...
    Almael, is there any scans from art books?
    And are characters are more like anime style or like those old Seikai books covers?

    If you mean the pic I posted then the artist is Salmon found here.

    There are actually 8 12 books now or more can't check precise number. :/
    The
    archive has been posted in AN, don't see the thread yet. I was sure I
    had it marked but maybe that was on my older out of service drive...
    Ok found the thread it's here. Tsk, I was looking at all the old ones page after page that I didn't notice it was put up there.

    Great - i remember seeing these but never did a reliable bookmark archive. It seems AN serve us well still.
    There's realy a lot of useful visuals and those pre-productions sketches are priceless - if i'm not mistaken those are the ones used by animators as reference for various poses/expressions etc and the guy who drew em is kind of "real" designer of all characters. The pencil can tell a lot. And he's even using "cross/oval" method for drawing heads like i do Very Happy

    Almael, this is what i think it is, can you read what it says? Smile

    Btw, maybe we should put up a real sticky "Important Seikai links&resources" topic?

    Those are both production and prototyping sketches. The way the artist does them is normal compared to others.

    I mean - there's he/she is woman and a man. Meaning it's how he'd look if he was a woman in anime? Strange, why did they have to change face..

    Spoiler:

    There are different versions for all characters, and somehow they selected only one.
    I think Sobash was to look conservative, but he/she is actually experienced and knows 'business' (trader).

    Although, the trader king is escaflown was nice, too. Laughing

    Spoiler:
    I found this picture on one of the hobbyist/amateur artist sites like deviantart or something else, but somehow lost where exactly i took it from. If you have any idea where this might be coming from (maybe somemanga?) let me know - i like it and want to learn this simple strait line style and it's good for learning how to draw seikai characters in anime/manga style - i want to see more of this artist

    My common practice is to quote the post to get the url.

    Paste it into another tap window and see if it works. Some sites prevent hotlinks so you may need to go to the site first to have their cookie activated and then try the url on that page again.

    For small images sometimes you just edit the url a bit to get a big image. Many images have common naming/url scheme, but it may not work for any random pics.
    Code:

    for example
    http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/e/ed/United_States_Northern_Command_emblem.png/600px-United_States_Northern_Command_emblem.png
    ->
