XENOSAGA PSM swimsuit illo by AdamWarren XENOSAGA PSM swimsuit illo by AdamWarren
Another one of the illos that Ryan Kinnaird and I did for the magazine PSM's now-defunct "videogame swimsuit illo" feature, a few years ago... Me on the line art, Ryan on the Photoshoppery.

This one features characters from the XENOSAGA game, in case you can't tell. A bit heavy on the "racktastic" angle, I'm afraid, so my apologies to the cleavage-averse out there. Oddly enough, I kinda LIKE the way that the star-laden sky rather competes with the equally colorful and showy buildings in the background; IIRC, I think I pushed Ryan to go "over the top" with the BG elements, and he WENT with it, baby.

I'm posting this for two reasons: one, to add another color piece to spice up my otherwise-monochromatic gallery; and two, to commemorate the tragic loss of PSM's swimsuit feature (well, a tragic loss to my bank account, at least). In fact, my upcoming endpage piece for the June (?) issue of PSM likewise memorializes that now-defunct practice... and shows the true horror of what a 2007 videogame-swimsuit feature might've actually look like.

Great line art and nice colors. I miss PSM and its artist's illustrated covers.

The blue-hair reminds me of Ayanami Rei from Neon Genesis Evangelion, for some reason. Poker face, maybe?

Hey, I saw this in an old issue of PSM I had while raiding my closet.

I think it was also the first time I ever saw your artwork (I recently read Empowered 1).

Amazing work.

I've sketched out some Xeno' fan-art, too.
Yours is better.
ARMORCRYSTAL Featured By Owner May 17, 2009
This is one of the reasons why I still play Xenosaga.
Mocha-Rush Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2008

AzureDeath92 Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2008

dp21 Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2008
that's the kind of art that gets 8th grade boys to start looking at hentai, then they become addicted and spend all their time fapping and posting messages like this........

Solbet Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
Haha, I remember this pic. Man, this is what originally made me want to go and buy the Xenosaga games, lol! Lovely pic, btw, and PSM screwed you on a steady paycheck.

Byaukugan01 Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2007
Gotta say, Kosmos is damn hot in a swimsuit-more than usual I mean-but i still wouldn't try asking her out...I like my arms attached to my body and not being used to beat me to death, thankyou very much.

I like how KOS-MOS's hair flies.
clampfan101 Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2007  Hobbyist General Artist
Kinda strange that KOS-MOS is the emberesed one, isn't it?
Anyway, the scenery is very nice! (and I did't mean the girls by that >.> )
Akihisho Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2007
Great art, I love the background also, I feel like playing the game now...
OmegaDez Featured By Owner May 28, 2007
The loss of the swimsuit feature is sad indeed. However, PSM was a lame, biased magazine and I am glad to see it gone now.

But anyway... Awesome picture mister Warren. XS ep 1 Shion is always a big win in my mind. I didn't even know you were on DA. Now I know. ^_^
Nightmate Featured By Owner May 23, 2007
