Final Fantasy VI: Bookmarks by karniz Final Fantasy VI: Bookmarks by karniz
:icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz:

Drawn: June 2010
Program: Painter IX
From: Final Fantasy 6/VI


More chibi's! These were actually illustrations done for a plentiful series of bookmarks that I lovingly hand-crafted and had for sale during Anime Next 2010. They did pretty well, amazingly enough. But I think I made too much of certain people and not enough of others...

The Final Fantasy 6/VI group~ I think I had the most fun doing these... and I actively use these bad boys as my refrigerator magnets... hehehe~ ♥

Please keep your comments about the illustration.

I dunno what pool was that you made, but I think now you see it was really wrong. SHADOW DAMMIT
Also Strago, he's cool too.

ps "So as an artist I would have loved to do EVERYONE" So why didn't you do them? Don't say you don't have time.

Since you decided to open the gates being super negative, for whatever reason;
I'm just gonna paste a reply that I had made back in 2010, y'know, when I originally drew these up and made em' for products:
"Actually, I ran out of time to do all of the characters - all fourteen of the main heroes were planned as well as some of the "antagonists" [ie. General Leo.]
[And no - Gogo is not actually hard to draw as a chibi... well, at least in my version of what I call chibi... hehehe!]
Thanks! Kefka is really great. ♥"
But yeah, ALL fourteen heroes and a handful of NPC's WERE sketched out, but I had to pick and choose what would sell the best.
Sadly, that's how it works in the product-making world!
I, too, absolutely adore Strago, Shadow, Umaro, Gogo, General Leo, Cid... but would they sell? Probably not more than one or two.
And did I finish the illustrations? Nope, because I was working on a comic to sell on the side, and the comic needed to be finished.

I had to make an unofficial 'poll' as to whom would sell better than others.
Popular characters sell better than unknowns, unfortunately.
So as an artist I would have loved to do EVERYONE, but as a seller I had to stick with what would make me the most $$$.

And Lock sold out almost instantly! hehe.

Hey man, I have LOTS of love for Shadow. ♥
Alas, when doing these bookmarks, only 'popular' characters were chosen, although all characters were planned.
These didn't sell well, which is the only reason I didn't continue to do the rest of the cast.
Shadow DID make it on the cover for my doujinshi, Trick Stars Vol. 1 - dressed as Strago from FFVI. He is on the bottom, where there is some text... [Edge, from FFIV is dressed as Shadow.]
You just can't see Interceptor on the ground, because of the text. XD;;

You gotta make what sells, that's the truth.
My fave five from FF6 are Shadow, Locke, Setzer, Gogo, and Terra.

I agree with your team, technically I like them ALL, but my main cast was always; Setzer, Tina, Relm, Gau... XD
[I like casters. And Gau cuz'... well, he's Gau. ♥]

Well... These were made these as bookmarks that I hand-made & sold.
Not just to be used to print out and make yourself.
But I guess it's too much to ask of to respect an artists wishes...

It's a mixture of their pixel art as well as Amano's illustrations of them. Hehe, and Lock is the best. ♥

I always thought that Setzer looked a lot like Sephiroth from Final Fantasy VII. I sure hope their personalities aren't the close. (Nobody comment on that- I'm not that far into the game I don't want it spoiled for me. I'm only on the mizo river.)

:iconkarniz:
karniz Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It's the other way around - Setzer exsisted years before Sephiroth's invent.
Well, to answer your question - Setzer is a human. Hehe. [Unlike Sephiroth which wasn't really... there...] Setzer has a bigger role in the story. Sadly it really only exists around the time that you attain him [which is soon] and again towards the end.

I knew that sephiroth came after setzer. (6, 7, 8.... I can count mommy!)

But yeah, I dunno, cuz I just finished all three stories on the split part. Still no spoilers kthx

I've always believed Setzer to be similar to Sephiroth, but with much more style. ^^ and anyone who believes Sephiroth a better villain than Kefka, then your beliefs are just plain wrong, sorry for you.

:iconkarniz:
karniz Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
In essence, Sephiroth is similar to Setzer - since Setzer came first.
I don't think there are many villains out there more devious than Kefka. ♥

This is so incredibly badass. So awesome. I adore how you combined elements from the sprites, the Dissidia art style, and the original Amano designs. Way to go. :D

:iconkarniz:
karniz Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Please, do not mention "Dissidia Style", none of the designs were inspired from the Dissidia game whatsoever - they're mostly my interpretations of Amano's art in general. I do not have any of it online at the moment, but I had illustrated a Final Fantasy doujinshi/comic I had done before Dissidia was released that showed these looks.
Sorry, strong-headed that I am, I do not look up to Nomura's art at all. Heh.

:iconinspirrational:
Inspirrational Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2010
Not so much a fan of arguing about a compliment. "Actually, I had these designs before Dissidia came out" is sufficient; and frankly, I was referring to the aesthetic decision to combine elements of the sprite work and Amano's art to make a new look.

I don't care if you can appreciate Nomura's work or not. I never said you copied it.

I absolutely love the way you drew Kefka. These things are awesome.

I was about to ask about Gogo, but he'd be kind of hard to draw as a chibi, so I'd understand not including him.
