You should have kept him left-handed.

I'll say this, I actually prefer your redesigns of the cast over the originals. The original versions weren't bad but were kind of generic; If you tossed Crono into a group of other RPG main heroes, all using swords, he'd blend in pretty well. But here? An industrial-age scrapper with an improvised weapon. It just feels more unique, and tightens some of the themes of the story. Creativity should always trump nostalgia in character designs, lest one falls into the pit of mediocrity.

I won't harp too much on Toriyama's designs, the man is a legend (if not very diverse in his style). But I'd be totally down for a design like this in a remake of Chrono Trigger.

Plus, it'd be hilarious listening to all the 90's nostalgia-overloaded fans crying and whining.

These would make a great a concept for a more western ( as in not japanese) remake of CT, and even though I'm really tired of the constant abuse o steampunk, it certainly fits with this story. You certainly put a lot of effort into these designs, my hat's off to you!

This is probably the biggest departure from the original. If I had to guess, I'd say Steampunk Hobbit as imagined by Taiyu Matsumoto.

In fact, it's such a departure I'm a little curious. What inspired the move away from Chrono's original clothes? The short sleeved robe, boots with tucked-in spats, and headband? Where did the flat cap/distorted dutch cap and prominent red nose come from? Why change from Chrono's familiar katana to the length of pipe?

Huh...very nice concept you have here. I'm eerily reminded of Zeranium from Radiata Stories, the old man/bum/former knight that wielded a lead pipe into battle. Your Crono cleans up much better than him but it's the pipe and the kinda drab clothing that makes the similarities. Even the artwork seems somewhat similar. Regardless, a great piece.

Think you can do one of Marle, Lucca, and Robo? I bet Robo would be cyberpunk!

Interesting concept. lovely drawings. I can see why they'd throw this street urchin in the prison.

Oh my gosh, the hair! That wild mess is gone!
And yet, in that main colour image, he's still a stubborn little punk, so I guess that's what matters in the end? |Db

Making him an Irish factory kid works well, because it instantly feeds people with a motif they can easily understand. I was most excited to see your redesign of Chrono, since his character in the game was one without personality.
