2-8-12: I'm a Big Girl Now! by Robaato 2-8-12: I'm a Big Girl Now! by Robaato
SatelliteSoda February Draw-A-Day, Day 8. FINAL FANTASY IV.

Sorry, didn't feel like doing a piece that tells a story, wanted to play with lighting more (and draw "grown-and-sexy" Rydia). Though I think I'll throw in a vignette later on if I get time involving this game.

Oh yeah, this game.

Final Fantasy 4's story is the classic RPG story. It set the bar for a lot of RPGs to follow. The story of a man's road to redemption is one that is told often, but you can't help that Cecil was the most gangsta' main character to do it.

Also, Rydia was my favorite gal for a long time as a kid; such a beast on the mage'dom, she was.

TOOLS: SketchbookPro2011/PhotoshopCS4/Cintiq21UX
MUSIC: Final Fantasy 4 OST
TIME: 1 Hr. 50 Mins.

Oh yeah, go and click download for the full res. That's how small I worked this piece at, so you can see how imperfect I really am. :)

If only she gets to keep her white mage spells, kinda nerfed my party dynamics :P

It's not very often that I say "I like the bewbs," but thanks for not making the funbags too ridiculous. XD Full and plump can be achieved without going nutzo on the jubblies.

And yes, Rydia is the mostest badass evar, though she ties pretty even with Edge and Kain in my book. :boogie:

Rydia was a nice surprise in the game. You never were sure who was going to come back into the party, and the sudden return of her, older even, was a part that made us smile. Then you realise she's also super hot. Bigger smile.

Also. Spoilers.

Of that game, I think my two favorite characters were Kain and Rydia. I really love how you worked her out, and honestly, she pretty much set the bar for me when it comes to video game girls.

Excellent job!
