Part 106: Bonus Material: Concept Art BonanzaWhat an art dump I'll of shit I'd been sitting on but keep forgetting to add? 'course you do!
Serge Concept Art - Actually used in-game in the Game Over screen. I ought to post that one of these days.
"My thumbs down was a twofold response-a sign of derision at being called a silent hero and a signal of my complete understanding of the mission orders."
Pictured above: Serge stoned out of his gord. Pictured below: Serge - angry drunk.
A few early Serge character sketches.
Kid's Portrait Artwork - She's one of the few characters that doesn't just use their main character art as a portrait too.
Kid with a bad sunburn art.
Near final Kid sketch - All that is left is to make that skirt about five inches shorter.
Alternate color scheme for Kid - Before she decided bright red was definitely the way to go for being a thief.
Alternate Kid design - In some bizarro dimension where she was 95% less slutty dressed.
Early Kid sketches - Slightly more in-line with her Radical Dreamers' design.
Slightly more hoboish Kid design. She appears to be wearing plastic bags for shoes.
Drafts of Lynx striking a pose and coping a feel.
Lynx just loves hugs with old friends.
Early, significantly less (and more) cat-like designs for Lynx.

Pip the Pokémon.
Some alternate Guile designs from back when he actually mattered worth a damn to the plot.

A cousin of the weird, ugly later evolved Metroids.
Yes, despite having a clusterfuck final total of 45 characters, the original designs included 65 in total. Here's some left on the cutting room floor:
Apparently, this was some robotic puppet type guy that you could swap-out parts to change his weapons and stats. Couldn't have any crazy unique traits like that. Axe.
A baker's daughter fighting with the mighty baguette of legend.
Goddamn ninjas are in everything. They're as bad as zombies.
A few more mermaid type folk. Umlauts optional.
