Gooey entities that can be encountered in Squaresoft's 1991 Final Fantasy Adventure Gameboy video game [original Japanese title: Seiken Densetsu: Final Fantasy Gaiden (Holy Sword Legend: Final Fantasy Side Story); European moniker: Mystic Quest]. A complete remake of said game was also released in 2003, on the Gameboy Advance, sporting the new name Sword of Mana.

Marsh Men glide effortlessly through the muck and tangled vegetation of their habitat, randomly sinking down into the stagnant mire, and out of sight, only to arise again, moments later, in a different location. Physical contact with one of these monsters will damage the player, as their semi-solid bodies are highly acidic, but, they're relatively slow and not terribly aggressive. These creatures are impervious to most conventional attacks; it is only through the use of spells, or magical/elemental weapons, that one has any hope of harming them.

Slain Marsh Men are worth 10 experience points and 5 pieces of gold. After being defeated, they will occasionally drop a chest containing either a bottle of Ether (restores 10 magic points) or a Will Stone (temporarily boosts the Will attribute, which affects how quickly your attack meter, at the bottom of the screen, replenishes itself.) Marsh Men are often found living in close proximity to other swampland enemies, namely Jellyfish and Poison Flowers.

I really love this one. How did you make it look so gooey? Very cool work.

It's mostly just a matter of adding lots of thin "dripping" lines and trying to convey a downward "flow" direction of features across the entire figure's form. A high gloss coat of nail polish also helps the effect.

Great as always. The more into retro gaming I get the more your stuff amazes me at how accurate it is. They should hired you to do a line of retro game mini figures.

This is Slick! (sorry I had to). Do you use a magnifying glass when you work? The scale and detail you make is so stellar.
Patraw - Thursday, June 14, 2012
No, I don't use a magnifying lens, I just squint and stick my face right up close to my work.
