Seeing it on a computer screen rather than my phone, I'm pretty sure now that it's mainly the Popolopoï that I find uncanny in that scene above. Did they just invert the texture colours? They look really wrong.
Ly herself looks OK-ish, though they could probably darken the shade of her clothes slightly. Looks like a similarly cheap edit, probably to increase the contrast because somebody noticed that she looked naked :mrgreen:

While she looks fine like that in the middle of a brochure page, she looks very wrong in the middle of that pirate bastion (as do the blue Popolopoï). Maybe it's just because I grew up with the Western version, but that picture just looks really off to me.

I was just referring to her in-game appearance, not sure why she looks so different in this artwork. I think she looks off in both cases anyway.

According to this video, the japanese Dreamcast version depicts Ly in a different way than the japanese Revolution version:



I really don't know why they felt the need to change her design again in Rayman Revolution.

Oh, I see, then the artwork you posted is actually identical to her in-game appearance in the Japanese version of Revolution, while my screenshot is from the Japanese Dreamcast version of the game. I had no idea there were too Japanese Lys, this is even more confusing now.

In any case, I can't seem to find an in-game screenshot of Ly from the Japanese version of Revolution, so this would definitely be a worthy addition.

There is this screenshot that was shared on Twitter, but the quality is not the best:

The Dreamcast Japanese Ly looks a lot better to be honest, I have no idea what they were thinking for her Japanese Revolution design. I'm almost getting Tily vibes thinking about it, and I may even argue that it's worse than Tily. :fou:

This is the Dreamcast version, which doesn't look so bad in comparison:

I don't see one of these Japanese Dreamcast ones on RayWiki under Ly's article, unless I'm just blind. :P

Well, unless someone has the ROM handy, this could do the trick for now, if we can identify the source to properly credit them, of course.

It was only in the French article for some reason, but I've just added it to the English one as well.

Oh that makes sense, I hadn't even taken notice of the variations in the Japanese games being part of the articles.

I can somewhat understand the colour changes, even if they look somewhat unusual, but why did they change Ly's face. :P
