Basis for Anya?
« on: October 05, 2012, 02:00:25 PM »
Does anyone know if Anya's design was based off of an existing lighthouse or style of lighthouse?

She's a rather distinctive shape, at least in my experience with lighthouses.

Not that I know of but it's a good question :)

She's a star, shining her light at the other lighthouses and at River. Of course she wouldn't be just a typical lighthouse. :P

Well I was going to say that I found a pretty good likeness of her.



The Gibraltar Point Lighthouse, built 1808, located on the Toronto Islands. (A 15-minute ferry ride from downtown Toronto)

Ha! You've been found out. XD

Nah, but Kan didn't do the lighthouse art, right? I'm not sure who did, but it would be interesting to see their inspiration.

Spoiler: show

... Kan lives in Toronto last time I checked. Don't tell me it's a coincidence.

Also not hard to make a snapshot and post it with: "I'd like it to look something like this"

The only time I was on a lighthouse, we were on the way up with my family (I was a kid) and there was this open gap that I thought it was door and tried to go out, then realized there was no floor. I got so scared that I went back while my family made it to the top (it was a taller lighthouse than the one posted). Always been scared of heights so... yeah, not so pleasant memories of that thing >.>

Also, it looked more, rounded instead of square-y :P

Hmm, I suppose.

To me it seems a dead ringer for Anya.

Either way, I'm going to go visit her and be her friend.  :plat:

(Seriously, this game has me seeing lighthouses in a whole new way)
