I did this little FFIV strip because I was experimenting with something, which is why it looks a little rough around the edges. Kind of a neat idea though, just taking ideas from random FFs and turning them into one-page strips….next time though, COLOR.
Loved the designs in FFVI DS, by the way- well, except for Rosa; I have no clue what happened there.
I honestly have no idea why I drew Bayonetta, I remember at the time the game came out, I had, like, A REASON (something in particular I was trying to portray about the character), but I can’t remember for the life of me what that was. Even though she’s not a character I’m particularly fond of (and I’ve never played the game), I think it came out well- now, if only I could remember what this was FOR….
This was my first take on Riorla from Dark Juice Box, before I had an idea who she was and she became much scrappier and less elongated. I think I originally did a quick sculpture in Crayola Model Magic that inspired the character, which was about the size of my thumb.
Even though it really looks nothing like Riorla anymore, I still kind of like this drawing- she’s like the big sister that Riorla doesn’t have. Maybe a cousin.
Like Ayla, it took two attempts at Marle from CT before I got one I felt was decent. Her face in the first one reminds me of Cameron Diaz, and not in a good way. I feel like the second one has much more of her character, but the pose is a little boring- Marle should be in action, I know.
This is probably my favorite DJB-related image so far, even though Moxil (the mini-unicorn) looks a little weird.
Rydia! Actually done with colored pencil, which is why it looks so different. I wanted to draw her and real media and then paste her onto a box, which I did, so that’s why it looks so different. I don’t do stuff like this much because it always comes out messy and whatnot, but it’s fun now and again.
I got to Chrono Trigger very late in the game (like, 2009 late), but I was really impressed with the characters. I tried to do a series of the Chrono Trigger characters and ended up just doing the girls (which is so typical.) Why did I keep giving Ayla such tiny feet? She is a warrior who clubs robots to death with her bare hands, it makes no sense! Ah well, flawed but kinda cute.
I ended up enjoying Luminous Arc 2 for DS far more than I thought I would.
