just a reminder, the first design was made by another artist just for the countdown art
clarus in king's tale and clarus in kingsglave doesn't contradict each other, there's a 30 year gap in the story which csn justify the change in visuals
Can I take this to the Ultimania spoilers thread, or do you want to do it? ^^;
It's in the UCE art book as concept art for the main game. It could have been an earlier concept for one of the scenes between those two that we did get, especially since the apparent location (and therefore timing) might not be ideal considering what they've said they're adding.
i really got that she was determined and strong by how resistent is her conviction to execute her duty... at least in her 5 minutes of screentime; many dumb ppl that are complaining about her don't get that a person can be strong in many ways, not only physical; she
lived her entire life to her duty as oracle, lost her mother, the empire got her in a leash, awakening the gods was very unhealthy for her, she kept dreaming about her platonic love, only saw him adult when she was about to die; but she did her part, she did what should be done, this is strenght and resistence that i can respect because even living a shitty life wasn't enough to stop her; the main problem again is that all this wasn't exposed enough.
anyway, if stella is being described as weak and dependent by official material, then it might be well the case.
