I just got back from my first trip to Japan and while I was there I happened to pick up a bunch of KH2 stuff, uncluding several books. There are SO many good references in them that I thought I'd put up something here. However due to sheer number, scanning all of it would be a hassle, so I'll just post in response to any requests.

Some examples of things that I hadn't seen before that are in there:

Tetsuya Nomura's character art of Pence, Hayner, Olette, Seifer, Fuu, Rai, and Vivi. (don't remember seeing Setzer)
Sketches of the faces of KH2 Organization XIII members. (not sure about the ones in Chain of Memories, though)
Both in-game and drawn versions of the Tron world costumes.
Close-up of King Mickey in his Org13 coat. (slight variation on the clasps and maybe beads)

Since I'm going to try making a wig for Roxas and Axel, I tried sketching each of their heads from a lot of different angles (6+) and I could scan those as well.

Reply here or gimmie a PM and I'll do my best to get things up quickly. Hopefully there won't be too many things that I don't actually have.

edit:
Also have:

Nomura-san's artwork for - DiZ, KH2 Auron, Kairi (school uniform), Dusk, Prideland versions of the gang (useful for plushies?), KH2 Riku, Ansem the Wise, KH2 Paine Rikku and Yuna, black&white Sora, weapons of the same Org13 that I have faces of.
PS2-quality in-game shots of the five or so Org13 that didn't make it to KH2. (poses are all generic, might be elsewhere online)
Most of the pixel art from Chain of Memories, including all the character portraits displayed while they talk. (unfortunately it doesn't include all their various expressions, just a straight-faced one for each)

Could you post Axel, Saix, and Demyx's face/character sketches? =3 Take your time. Thanks!

In response to these first two requests:

First, I need to say that apparently in between my coming home from college and my trip, my scanner has been moved somewhere... Working on finding the bugger!

But...

Shippo87: Will do! Saix's also includes both "normal" and "berserk" faces :3

Relion-Rinoa: Hmm... I'm not seeing Yuffie, sorry. :( I think I saw Cid somewhere, and if I find him then maybe Yuffie would be there. But I would probably need an Advent Children art book to get at that particular illustration.

Oh, sorry about the colors getting grainy in there, not sure why that happened. If I figure it out I'll re-scan them.

An addition to the above...

Could you please scan each of the Organization XIII weapons?

If that's too much I can get more specific. Take your time. Thanks a bunch!

Gaaah apparently kh2.co.uk has the same book I do, and they were willing to separate the pages to get better scans. :x

http://www.kh2.co.uk/?com=Artwork
Has all the Chain of memories Org13 guys(and gal :P)
And as far as I can tell... Zexion does NOT have a weapon. o. O

Thanks Killer_Tofu. Even if it makes my shiny book obsolete it does save me from breaking all the bindings. :D

The first 4 rows are all KH


Does anyone have or can obtain screenshots of some of the keyblades? Im particularly looking for Fenrir and Ultima right now.

You don't have to separate the pages. And those sites got their scans from here (http://pics.livejournal.com/nunuu/gallery/0000r7a6?.view=grid).

I bought the book online, and its dang pretty. All being unique for my own scans I guess. Some could consider it breaking the bindings, but it actually made it a lot easier to view. I just opened it to the page without the color cover and held it down softly so I could get the entire image.

Zexion doesn't have a weapon, that's why his grave was destroyed in the KH2 game in The World That Never Was.

o_o I WUV YOU! *Glomp-Smooch-age*

Is it possible at all to get that book imported? xD I'm not visiting Japan anytime soon, unfortunately. *Sobs*

Acturally what I was gonna request seems to already be present in one of your scans: Luxords cards, still looking for a referance for Sora's Card form or Dice Form (I know someone made the Dice form before, just havent been able to really find it again >.<)

I bought it from here (http://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/product/4757516215/249-7638775-8604368?v=glance&n=465392). They ship to other countries, and Play-Asia's store is too expensive. So that's your best bet. There are a couple English functions somewhere on the site...

That's the biggest picture I have of his card / dice forms. I could always re-scan it, but it would be even grainier.

Seraphy, I now love you (In a friendly, non-stalkerish way) Those pics will work fine. That first one will really help, and while second one is a bit small its still gives me the idea. Thanks you so much.

Those are the right books, alright. I would reccommend getting that combined package of the two books for about 3200 yen. It's actually cheaper than what I got them for... o.o (well, maybe not after shipping, but if you put the cost of plane tickets in there... ^^; )
The two books together will get you a lot more images, each has things that the other doesn't. Ultimania (the black one) is more of a KH2 players' guide, while the red one seems to explain the relation of the games a lot more. It also includes the CoM and KH things.

Okay I have another question to throw out there cuase after doing my own research I finding inconsistancies (And not even beteen just concept to game art).

Luxord's earring set up. The only constant thing I been seeing is on eboth ears on the outter ridge he as a set of ringed earrings. Now comes the fun part. he has a small Nobody's symbol earring he wears on his lob, I been watching this thing switch from one ear to the other O.O. Finding a possable stud/ball below the rings whihc seem to be there then not (those are small so I just may not be able to see them).

Just seeing what others can find, less I just pic a set up, stick with it and be happy. Also ahead of time sorry for the hassle. Just trying to get those small little details down =)

Seraphy
06-03-2006, 07:53 AM
Its kinda odd. Cause in the artwork, he has the Nobody earring on his left side. But in the renders from the guide, he has it on his right, while the left has none. o_o; And then it switches from side to side sometimes. I guess you should just choose whichever ear. XD

Trir
06-03-2006, 03:06 PM
Yep exactly, Thats what I came acorss as well. Darn thing doesnt know how to stay put. Oh well.

Yay Squaresoft and their forever Changing-the-Desgin between Concepts, Renders and FMVs. >.>

Thank you for the refrence images everyone. I want to do normal-clothes Riku.

Does anyone have any idea what color his jeans ought to be? My guide makes them look purple. x.x

Seraphy

I think his pants are a darkish type purple.
