Noise: Spiralscope by Tagami-Crown Noise: Spiralscope by Tagami-Crown
Entry #1 for the World Ends With You contest.

Spiralscope takes the form of a seahorse and has three basic attacks. It can unwind its tail while swinging it like a whip as the spikes extend, spew out deadly bubbles, and send out a sonic wave from its fin.

The spikier the seahorse, the better. :D Even with those spikes, it looks so huggable. I had a lot of fun with this one. ^_^

Noise concept and official designs belong to Square-Enix. I only own Spiralscope.

Aww, I can see why this was one of the winners. <3 Congratulations on that.

If they make a sequel, I'd love to see this in it. You followed the style so well.

Aww, thank you, Kiehs! ^o^ Who knows what the future may hold. We might someday see a sequel with spikey seahorses floating around. XD I for one would be amused.

Nice Zelos icon by the way. :3

Nobody expects the seahorses. XD Need plushie!

I'd love to see him animated, too! ;_; It'd be awesome to see it handled in the same fashion and graphics as the actual game. Animation takes a lot of time, which I don't have enough of. D:

Nope, haven't played the game yet. But by simply looking at it, I can tell it makes a good enemy in the game. ^^

Just wish this entry won & it's put in the game. Then you'd know I'm right. =p

I hope you get to try the game out soon! :3 *still hasn't played yet* XD

This can't be like the original Kingdom Hearts with having a special monster boss thrown in just for a contest, but it would have been pretty cool if that was the case. @_@ *imagines* Who knows what the future may hold though!

If I knew how to make animated gifs, then I'd give a try with animating these creatures. XD

amari9 Featured By Owner May 8, 2008
That would be cool! Hehehe. I actually imagined things this way if your entry won:

*The characters walk around the Shibuya District looking for the next big thing in the Game... A few meters ahead, a giant aquarium display was broken into. All the water from the tank has been drained & the street is flooded. The characters continue walking & suddenly stopping with a conversation. "There's something strange in the water..." And then, WHOOOSH!!!! The Spiralscope appears & shrieks with terror at the heroes. Then, they all take their stance for battle.*

Wow, I could almost make a novel on this thing. Hahaha!

Of course! It's boring if the Spiralscope sounds like a horse. Lol It would also be interesting if the characters are poisoned because of the water where the Spiralscope was swimming in. XD

Amazing! Very good concept, and it looks as if the seahorse is etched into stone: it gives it a fossil-like feeling. I'm very impressed! :)

You did a nice job, dear. However it coulda been better. Maybe if you worked on it a bit more. I'd be interested to see this if you reworked it! Congrats on the win, sorry people are angry at you but I agree that you should but a little bit more work into it.

It wasn't easy to stick as closely as possible to the official Noise design looks, which are relatively simple no matter how you look at them. It took a lot of researching and comparisons to get this far. I'm all up for lots of detail, so my entries for this contest were real challenges to design and not overload with intricacies. @_@ I honestly thought that quite a few other Noise designs would have been selected, so I'm really deeply flattered that the development team chose this as one of the finalists. :blushes: Maybe sometime in the future, I'll redesign Spiralscope without restrictions to one style, but by then, it might look completely different and scare you. XD; Thanks, Nadasulaki!

It wasn't easy to keep things so simplified for the contest and to the game's style, but it was still fun. :) You mentioned adding in some small details in the back, but what did you have in mind? :3 More of the tribal tattoo designs or maybe some side flippers? I'm more than flattered by them choosing my entry as one of the finalists; I really didn't expect to win over quite a few of the other Noise designs. @A@;; Thank you, CrazyHane! ^_^
