Espeon : Mage staff background [link] made in photoshop Co-Op work by Nichi Kira: editing Revan Kusanagi: idea and concept Revan: Here is the next one of the Eevee Evo Series. Espeon, the 4th of the Eevee Evo Tree. And like I said previously, the look would be an homage to a Final Fantasy weapon. This is inspired from Final Fantasy X, Yuna's Summoner Staff. Now we couldn't make it exatly identical because to Nichi, if it doesn't have some sort of blades, it aint worth uploading. >_> Ain't that right Nichi?
Nichi: Yes, for me I want to consistent with my blade series. Even if espeon is a psychic type pokemon and a mage staff is a perfect weapon for it.. I still put a blade on it.. it can cast spells(special attacks) and i can also be a mellee weapon.
Revan: I know but it made the staff look all weird. Anyways, I digress. We had to alter the initial look but still keep some of the original elements of the Summoner's Staff. The jewel at the base of the staff head represents the jewel on Espeon's forehead.
Now I have a favor to ask of you all. Please, I repeat, PLEASE give me your most honest thoughts on this look. This is the first time I thought of a design like this with blades and internally....Im not very content on how it came out. We didn't want to leave you guys waiting for too long. So give us very detailed Critiques and your honest thoughts. Dont hold anything back.

I dont like it. Espeon is my favorite Pokemon ever. And a staff doesn't really fit her. I think she would be better as a ornate katana. But that is what Eevee is, so maybe not. I just think it is too impractical. Nevermind magic, that thing would be heavy and would barely cut. I don't know, it just doesn't feel Espeon-y. If you where to improve it, give it a really pronounced blade at the top. That would be... better. Its not bad, I just think it doesn't represent espeon too well.
I'm actually a large fan of this look, although I must say... the pointed blade at the top center seems like it should be a bit longer and more pronounced, I love the look to this and it's very unique.
All of the focus is on the head of the bladed staff, which is fine, but I feel like the rest of the body is ignored (too simple) like at the very bottom of the pole. The head looks too awkward to me. Maybe extend the very top spike to a similar length of the side spikes, preferably the middle or bottom one. Still great work.
it looks very top heavy like it looks like it'll be very heavy to lift (the blade part) in real life i think maybe you could try slimming down the design (to emphasis the slender appearance of Espeon like its tail)
and if u still want to do something with the blades try and use maybe 7 blades resembling Espeon's whiskers (cause 7 or 3 or even 6 are mage numbers [i think they are XD])
and the middle part is kinda confusing cause in Umbreon's u had the Moon's so maybe make them suns?
IDK only opinions and i nvr saw the Final Fantasy inspiration weapon so...
DUDE! I KNOW! I told Nichi to slim the blades down but he didn't want to do it. With the size of the blades, of course it will all be top heavy. Also it has 7 blades. Count them lol The middle part is the design from Yuna's Summoner's Staff.
I like the core concept (bladed mage staff), but I don't like how the blade is on top. Kind of busy and going everywhere. If you guys were to go at it again, I think something like [link] would be better. Maybe Espeon's face in profile with all the cool stuff in the middle?
