VII by AbyssWolf VII by AbyssWolf
I made these to pass some free time... maybe I could have done something that hasn't been done a million times (I think this is my 4th..?) but BLAH
Also posted these individually in my tumblr, where I post pixels more frequently:

People are making money off of your work on FB with T-shirts, if that is not you, FYI.  Send me a message for the URL, as deviantart won't let me post without thinking it's spam.

Very nicely done!

You should recreate these with all individual pieces for body parts and armor laid out on one image so that people like myself can make rigs and make animations and games. Like a spritesheet.
These are super tight.

If only there was an FF 2D fighting game to use these in
ShadowOfTheVoid Featured By Owner May 12, 2016
If FFVII had sprite-based graphics like this, then nobody would have ever wanted a remake. Those early 3D games have aged poorly, but sprites are timeless.

Anywho, good job on these.

That is so true. I can go back to 16-bit games just fine to this day, but first-gen 3D makes my eyes bleed. Once I saw a Playstation 2 in action, all 3D graphics before that point were dead to me. Those first 3D consoles may have had the minimum power to make 3D work, but they didn't have the power to make 3D look good.

And speaking of dead to me and FFVII remakes, I always feared that when it happened, they wouldn't just improve the technical presentation, but totally overhaul the art direction itself to be more realistic, along the lines of Advent Children's visuals. And hey, what a surprise, that's exactly what they did. I loved the way the FFVII cast looked in the original Nomura illustrations, or Kingdom Hearts (mostly the first one, because I hated their Advent Children outfits,) and even in these sprites here. But like all Nomura designs, they look absolutely awful when they get close to anything realistic. (And besides that, I wouldn't have been a fan of Japanese RPGs in the first place if I wanted realistic art direction in any context.) So I guess I'll always be stuck with original FFVII's horrible early 3D graphics, or the remake's horrible art direction. But never a version that has both the right style and technology.

Well, there are mods for the PC version that try to update the graphics without changing the style entirely.  The Reunion mod (which is also a retranslation and a menu overhaul) has a good one, and it's compatible with the Steam release.  The model overhaul in the Reunion mod just makes the models a bit taller, and unblocks the blocky original chibi designs (hands look like hands, and so on).

These seriously remind me of some of the wackier '90s arcade fighting/beat-'em-up games, like the Ninja Turtles arcade game, Darkstalkers (Cait Sith especially, the big Moogle thing reminds me a lot of the sasquatch guy from that game) and Final Fight (this version of Barret could easily be a boss there -- probably a hard one too with that machine-gun arm!)

I'd have a lot more interest in playing the 3D Final Fantasy games if they looked like this rather than like a bunch of awkward spiky-haired lego-men. XD

What do you use to make this
goukitenku Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Sometimes I feel that VII would have been better as sprite art, it maybe would have aged better. Whenever I tried to play it (I never played it when it was out, wasn't interested in JRPGs at the time), the visuals (also, the fanboys) were just too jarring for me.  Your art just brings that point home!  That being said, I will play the remaster and see what they come up with
GoatMutation Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist

OMFG this is just so awesome. Someone should definitely build a 2d remake of the game using your sprites, it would be so fcking epic!!!

:faint:  This is beyond amazing. What do you use??? Anybody knows??
ShadowOfTheVoid Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2015
Had the games industry not made such a rapid push towards 3D graphics, FFVII could have had amazing sprites like these instead of the crude 3D models we actually got. IMO, the industry moved to 3D entirely too soon. Sure, it worked for some genres, and other genres essentially require 3D graphics, but even back in the 90s I thought the 3D graphics of the day were typically bland and uninteresting. Nintendo were about the only ones that could pull it off, but then again they were going for a colorful and very cartoony aesthetic, and I still thought 2D games looked a lot better. I still think 2D sprite-based graphics still had a lot of potential, but the industry was largely done with 2D once the hardware got powerful enough. It's a shame, though, as sprites still have their own charm. Fortunately, after the turn of the century further advances in technology made 3D graphics less of an eyesore. Still, I do miss sprites, which are rare outside of indie games.
Cool. I've been playing this game a lot lately. :)

Outstanding work. The fuzzyness on Cait Sith's Mog
is great too. Most don't bother with that detail.
Chrenolda Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Although I appreciate the complexity of the sprites themselves, I feel as if the sort of pink filter over everything makes the colours a little too drab for my liking. Overall however, great job!

These are gorgeous, seriously. My favorite FF title in modern pixel art style! Just WOW.
