Heya everyone!

Well, I've been silent on this one for a while except for a few close people and some inner circles. I held back on this update since I wanted to make sure that everything is in the clear.

From March, I managed to get a hold of Hiroki Kikuta, the man who composed the music for Secret of Mana (and many other games). This November, finally got the songs available! Both of them are beautiful!

Via tweets (Updated 13 January 2015): twitter.com/Hiroki_Kikuta/stat… (From Hiroki Kikuta) / twitter.com/Seizui_/status/555… (From myself)

UPDATE: Current as of 13 January 2015, I received the title for the songs from Hiroki Kukuta, "Promised Hearts". Truth be told, I am not sure the meaning behind it, but I'll interpret it as I can:

Meaning behind "Promised Hearts"
I like to think of it as Reize making a promise to himself to become an adventurer. He wants to live out his dream and will do anything to achieve it. As such, he will brave through anything and achieve it. Along the way, he may inspire others to take up the mantle and explore or achieve their dream.

However, I have two different songs with the same tune. I mentioned that I love both of these songs for different reasons. I personally decided to classify them as "Spring" and "Summer" respectively. I decided to base the subtitles off of the seasons due to it tracing back to his humble origins as some kid in a village that is completely surrounded by forests. The forest life stress importance on seasons, which tends to make or break necessities such as harvests and life in the forest. It is humble and fitting. However, the individual reasons...

Normal Character Theme: Promised Hearts ~Spring~
This is the type of song that you would hear when you meet the character. Perhaps it is an introduction song. The subtitle of "Spring" fits with this; it is a season that is often mellow, yet not somber. It rains during the time. Something you can relax to, just like the feel of the music.


Battle Theme: Promised Hearts ~ Summer~
This is the battle theme. I like the vibrant sound to this music. This is also one that you can imagine Reize out in the field, braving the new world that is now accessible for him. "Summer" is chosen as a subtitle due to its vibrant and sunny nature. The music carries this trait through it's Samba-like tune that makes you want to dance, but also good for a playful spar.


Give special thanks to the following:
Hiroki Kikuta: twitter.com/Hiroki_Kikuta
- Now freelance, Hiroki Kikuta is doing his own thing now!

- All around awesome guy, part of a team called Sekai Project. This would not be possible without his help.

I am not an artist, but someone who commissions artwork.
Llamas and other crap are worthless as shit to me, so don't expect one from me.

How I Operate as a Commissioner



:bulletred: I tend to look for people whose art style matches with the intent and objective of my vision, so I will not use one person for everything. Someone's art style may work for one motif while a different artist will work for another motif.

:bulletred: Overall, I am a nice guy. I am amiable as long as you keep me updated and am generally cool with people's flavors that they put. Other artists can agree. However, I do not mind being a jerk if you are proving yourself to be unreliable.




Where I can be found


Sanctuary Crew: I am one of the streamers for the group. We're a small, knit group that stick together.

Commissions: Hired Artists Who I am Waiting On

These names will be deleted when the projects are completed. (Current As Of (CAO) 18 June 14)

:bulletred: Vellvette [Hired Jan 2 2014]
- (Gave Update: Yes)
- Current Status: She has been constantly updating me. <3 She can only log on at the weekends, so it's all good. Progress is going well.

:bulletred: mangartdraw [Hired 22 Dec 2013]
- (Gave Update: No)
- Current Status: Seems legit, checking for an update on commission.

:bulletred: therese678 [Hired June 2013]
- (Gave Update: N/A)
- Current Status: Hired to do my 10 page intro comic for Reize. Was only given one page so far. No updates despite being told that I would get an update. I should have handed the project to EUDETENIS instead. e_e

Unreliable Artists

This is the list of artists that have earned my contempt due to communication problems and overall ignoring the commissioner. So, you can hire them under your discretion. I don't care. Just don't say that I didn't warn you. (Updated CAO 20 DEC 13)

:bulletred: mazjojo: There is a difference between artistic liberty and screwing up the character. He has done this twice and looking at the one with Reize annoys the crap out of me. Not only that, but did not get previews to prevent such a travesty. This violates the fact of 'If it is not your character, you are not to change what he looks like to ensure that the character design integrity remains intact'. The biggest issue with him was the yearly wait for a commission, forcing me to change it, and wait another year. Hired 2009 for group pic, sketch came in 2010. The purpose for the pic was moot, so I asked for money back. He was unable to provide the money back . New commission, another year. No communication, no nothing.
:bulletred: kinly: Took the money and never did the artwork. His poor friend Watou had to give the money back that he took from people and disappeared into nothing.
:bulletred: ryuuen: Did other stuff except for the commission.
:bulletred: tooaya: Took too long and did not inform me that the commission was finished.
:bulletred: JDarnell:Took too long even get the commission done with no real update on progress. Good artist, but bad with service to her customers as far as communications go.
:bulletred: OverlordJC: 2 month wait, no update whatsoever. Not only that, but when it was completed, I was not informed and learned of this from another person. He also failed to deliver the high-res version via e-mail after I gave him the information.
:bulletred: Ferisae: This one saddens me a lot. I was hoping to like this as a commissioner. However, I waited from January for this and it was nearing the end of August. Got my refund completed 25 SEP 12. As much as I liked the artist, unfortunately, the unreliability is a fact.
:bulletred: Nefis Good lord, looking at one of the pictures, it was never completed and it even took long to get that without much real update.
:bulletred: Lo-wah Hired on 22 MAR 12, received picture 31 DEC. No preview updates in-between and wondered where they went. Granted, artist made irresponsible mistakes due to personal problems. However, this is considered a consequence of that. Overall, this has been a valuable lesson as I have had many unreliable artists as of late.
:bulletred: shinjyu Hired on 2 JAN 11, finished 16 FEB 13. ...I don't know what to say. This is one artist that I enjoyed the most and she had been reliable. But since this last one. I don't know now. :/
:bulletred: Riza23 Hired on TBD, finished Ahahahaa. ...More later when I care to finish this.
:bulletred: KenshjnPark Hired on TBD, finished Ahahahaa. ...More later when I care to finish this.

Hello Seizui! I have decided to write about a character that is a little bit like yours. He is a knight, so he has a knights code and all that (how original can you get :p) But i am afraid of it being too much like yours and getting in trouble for it. I would send you that Knights code, but I am metaphorically blind and can't find where to send the information to! If you desire me to call off the project, I could do so. I would just like your permission to continue with it, for your character is what inspired my future character Thicket, the knight of Lumină and I would hate to rip off yours :D Thank you very much for your time. Have a good day!

Hey Thicket1,

*coughs*

To be fair, the Knight's Code, I completely jacked from Tales of Symphonia, Lloyd Irving's Dwarven Vows. It was recent that I had to change it to... not COMPLETELY rip it off.

Stuff that I took have been inspirations, others completely jacked, but eventually modified. Any case, go ahead.

In truth, I'm sure you'll also be able to form him as your own character. It took me a while. By while, I mean years.

If you need someone to bounce ideas off of you, I can. Honestly, what helped me was having a close friend like :icongalvanizing: who was my sanity check and is the one responsible for having me cut out on the ripping off.

Ok, thank you very much! I appreciate it! I will try to upload the code later on when i have finalized it! It would be interesting to have someone to bounce ideas off of to create it. To be perfectly candid this is just one of my pathfinder (dnd) characters of whom i wanted to write a story-arc for.

It would be very helpful if you could give it a look-see as soon as it's up! I can always take it down and edit later, so no rush! I should be posting it relatively shortly. Again thank you for your time in writing me back!

Sounds good. Ahh, Pathfinder, that's a game I haven't played in a while. But sure, I'll help you avoid the same mistakes that I am still trying to rectify.

You've probably been asked this MANY times but how did your character end up in "Shovel Knight"?

Hello!

Well to answer your question, it was during their Kickstarter. They had a tier that allowed the person who pledged at the tier to be a "Director for a Day". They could make a mid-boss fight, or some type of scenario. It was an opportunity to see my character as a boss fight, since Valdis Story: Abyssal City had him as an Assist Character.

Thanks!

While I wouldn't mind that, alas, that won't be possible. I am happy enough just to show up as a boss fight.

Oh! So you're the guy who developed Reize from Shovel Knight! I really like his design, very Tales style. <3 Those boomerangs bring back bad memories of Quick Man, though x'D
