More Final Fantasy designs
I know, I know, another obsession. These were never the best designs, but I still loved the characters. I still think this would be the best fodder for tv series. The characters are extrememly archetypal, but thats part of why I love them so much. It seems to me whenever western studios try to capture the charm of anime, they miss the point. I don't think it's got anything to do with the eyes or the hair or the "style"; it's the subject matter. There's a certan creativity and fearlessness that goes into there stuff, stuff I think we're too scared to do. I'm sure I'm alone on this, but i would love to animate a foppish, drag-queen villain (bottom, second from the right).
I didn't do as many of the main characters as I planned, but I just got hired to do some freelance concept art (which means I can't post any of it, ARRGGHHH) so I figured I'd finish up whatever I did to night and get it out of my system.
I know I put these up before, but I wanted to show a test I did with Zidane alongside these designs. This time on an actual video so people don't have to link to it. It landed me a job anyway. I think Rob Paulson would be perfect for Zidane...
