View Full Version : Need reference pics of Leon

04-11-2003, 05:20 PM
I've looked, and besides the official artwork, I can't find any images of Leon. I bought a jacket that will work perfectly for his costume, but I need some detailed shots of the pattern on his back. Anything that also shows an up-close view of the lionheart will work great too ^_^

Anybody have anything?

Dude, what Leon? Leon Kennedy?

04-11-2003, 05:28 PM
This should go in Game Costumes. ^_^; The artwork is going to be your best bet aside from playing the game, y'know?

04-11-2003, 05:41 PM
LOL, sorry ^_^

I was just wondering if anybody had any screen caps or such ^_^

04-11-2003, 05:53 PM
I had a ton of them, but I deleted them. I mostly found them all on google.

04-11-2003, 06:03 PM
:goes to google to search for "Kingdom Hearts Leon"...

I tried Altavista but it didn't kick back anything...

I know the Lionheart on the shoulder is a bit different than, say, the Lionheart Necklace (which I have). I made an image in Flash of the Lionheart on the shoulder using the 2 pics I could find. Is it a good approxamation? If not, what do I need to change?

Plus: Is it only on that one shoulder or is there an identical one on the right? And are the belts on the back of his thighs on BOTH pant legs?

Thankees ^_^

04-12-2003, 01:11 PM
Ok, just answer this then: Is it the one on the right? Because looking at the 2 pictures I can find it look like the one on the left isnt correct, because the mane doesn't touch the cross...

04-12-2003, 02:13 PM
hewo ^^ Well the belts are on both thighs, as u can see on the legs in this pic:


and as for ur rendition of the insignia on his shoulder, its a good approximation, but the actual lines of the mane and of the cross are alot sharper. This pic might help, and I can sketch out a larger version if u'd like. Also, the shading on the lion itself adds alot more dimension :)

04-12-2003, 02:15 PM
ackack the link didn't work, lemme attach the first pic:

and here's a site with some screenshots:


They pretty much show that the insignia is only on his left shoulder ^^

I love you, Alaria ^_^

Is there anything that shows the wings on the back? I found one picture in the cosplay database, but I don't know if its accurate or not...


04-12-2003, 08:00 PM
The Lionheart looks more like this? (on the right)

Get on AIM, Alaria! ^_^

04-12-2003, 08:14 PM
Yes! That looks really good for the silhouette of it
gaaah, can't go on aim tho, or I'll never get work done, lol ^_^

The guys' wings are an ok approximation, but the feathers are too thin. I can't find a screenshot yet, but here's a short clip; you can see leon's back at the beginning.
Lol, try and pause it just as Yuffie starts talking; his hair kinda swishes to the side and u can see the wings really clearly

Did I mention that I love you? LOL

Thanks a bunch! Will do! I'll post a pic of the wings when I sketch them in flash.

04-12-2003, 08:27 PM
*giggles* ty ^^ Glad to helps anytime. U r coming to the Irvine photoshoot rt? I know Matt's gonna wear his KH Cloud, so pics of u two together would be awesome!

04-12-2003, 08:58 PM
If I can get a ride up there...one plan has fallen through...

But Definately, I'll be wearing Leon if I go and hopefully sporting a gunblade.

04-12-2003, 09:07 PM
*scratches head* did u ask Spooky? I can prob pick you up and take u to the picnic, if u don't mind leaving early, but I would be able to take you back

04-12-2003, 11:21 PM
As far as I know, Spooky already has different plans to get up there...

I'll PM you later ^_^

04-13-2003, 12:15 AM
Here we go...I was able to bang out 2 wing designs...which one do you think?

04-13-2003, 01:02 AM
Hmm, the one on the rt, but a little more rounded on the upper feathers, and a tad bit more space in between the feathers ^^

04-13-2003, 01:15 AM
Like the new one on the left? Or do all the feathers need to be slightly rounded?

PS: Its almost 11:30. If you aren't doing any work, then get on aim! It would make this all immeasurably easier ^_^

04-13-2003, 01:32 AM
I know, I know, sawwies, but I can't ;_; the spacing on the new one on the left looks better, but yeah the ends of all the feathers need to be more rounded. Think of how you'd draw feathers on an angel wing..they'd be alot softer at the ends

04-13-2003, 01:39 AM
Does this look better?

04-13-2003, 01:40 AM
Durned attatchment didnt go through...

04-13-2003, 01:49 AM
yup! Now put the same spacing above the round thumbs up feather as between the others, and its perfect! ^^

04-13-2003, 02:03 AM
So this would be perfect? :D

04-13-2003, 02:10 AM
yaay, good good ^_^

04-13-2003, 02:11 AM
YAY! Thanks so much!

On a side note, I've already cut out a gunblade and am working on it! I'll finally have another costume ^_^

04-13-2003, 02:36 AM
kewl! I look forward to seeing it done ^_^ Hee, after seeing ur Dart I'm tempted to add Rose to my list for next year's costumes! She was my fav character in LoD

04-13-2003, 12:55 PM
I could help you and Matt make some dragoon armor hehe...
