Okage: Ari by crystaldragon Okage: Ari by crystaldragon
So, I'm about 7 years too late for an Okage fanart, aren't I?

If you think Ari's eyes look freaky, then don't play the the game, because that's totally what he looks like. Although, apparently his eyes were changed for the international versions because people were complaining about how scary they were. Kinda weird, since they didn't change Rosalie or Linda's.

This is a great piece of artwork. It is simple and yet it captures the eerie feel of the game in it's entirety. Great job.

Ari's eyes aren't THAT freaky. At least in this picture. In Japan, heck yes.

Great job~! ^_^

I think altering the looks of a certain something is disrespecting the artist's creativity.

I think Ari/Ruka is very cute just the way he is.

This game seriously needs more love, and I think you did an awesome job capturing Ari and his wonderful shadow :p

Did they seriously change the eyes for some versions? o.O' I must still have the original than....that's a bit strange.

But yeah, awesome work! :heart:

When I saw a preview a long time ago, before it came to the US. I was attracted by his eyes. I thought they made him look cute. I was a little disappointed when I actually played the game. :( I did make a picture of him with those eyes. It's far in my gallery.

I'm totally in love with this game. I played it a long time ago, but the disk I rented was so scratched and I couldn't get through the door to Madril. I just recently bought it.

It's a really good picture, I really like the perspective and detail in the eyes.

They were changed? I had not idea, fascinating. It's a small group, but we have an enthusiasm for all things Okage: [link]

If you have the time, perhaps you could share other tidbits, sources, theories, etc. We'd love to have you.

RiddleMeThis8 Featured By Owner May 4, 2008
Awesome I'm NOT the only person in the universe who played this game! Actually I noticed his eyes were considerably less freaky than everyone else. But his huge eyes is what made me want a plush of him! :heart:
