FFVII - The Scientists by CrimsonSun FFVII - The Scientists by CrimsonSun
Their combined IQ is OVER NINE THOUSAND!!!!


This was a lotta fun to do, despite requiring very little effort/skill on my part. ^^; Did take a lot of time though. Time I should've spent trying to improve in the (many many many many) areas I'm lacking in, hehe.

Left to right and top to bottom:

-Hollander; Crisis Core (who I like to call Eugene. It's cute. Say it out loud. Eugene Hollander)
-Faramis Gast; FFVII OGC (which I think is actually supposed to be Gast Faramis, but 'Gast' is a much better last name and I daresay the one we're all used to)
-Shalua Rui; Before Crisis, Dirge of Cerberus (who, for the record, obviously missed ALL the lab safety classes when she was in highschool)
-Fuhito; Before Crisis (couldn't find a picture of his costume. Hope the one he's wearing is okay. ^^; I'm extremely fond of Fuhito, if only because he was the only one who ever stroked Hojo's massive ego. Yeah.)
-Grimoire Valentine; Dirge of Cerberus (In Dynamic!Pose because Grim=Indiana Jones in Crim's mind, for whatever strange reason)
-Hojo; FFVII OGC, all other compilations (If I was forced into a marriage with any fictional character, let it be this one)
-Lucrecia Crescent; FFVII OGC, Dirge of Cerberus (she's so beautiful. ._. )
-Bugenhagen; FFVII OGC (most people forget old Bugen was a Shinra scientist once and was good friends with Prof Gast. There's a lotta backstory there that'd be fascinating to explore ^^)

...Right. D'you think I exhausted my chibi-drawing mania yet? ^^;

It is kind of sad the Grimoire was the only one not to fuck up his kid out of this group although Lucrecia probably would have done okay with Sephiroth if she had been given the chance. I all so wonder sometimes what he had to say to his students as they joined him in the Life steam one by one because they all really fucked up.

You included Shalua and Bugenhagen, I love you!

Aww even Hojo looks cute! . . .wow I never thought i'd say that ever.
CrimsonSun Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2011
OGC just stands for original game canon - meaning FFVII itself. :)

This is pretty awesome. xD

Aw...I will use the Hojo Chibi for a Tattoo on my leg.
Can I get your accreditation for this?
Ayu-Dev Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
These little chibis of yours are just the greatest!
Anyways, I never knew that about Bugenhagen... good to know though ^^
noxfoxArts Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
I'm coming back to this work of yours again and I wondered, when is it said that Bugen Hagen used to be ShinRa scientist, knew Gast and all? I don't recall at all since it's been a long time I haven't played the game... I may have missed details.
(and lol about the combined IQ comment! XD)
CrimsonSun Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2010
It's something Vincent says when you talk to him on the Highwind, I think when you're about to visit Cosmo Canyon to watch Bugen's planetary laser show. :)

All the equipment at Cosmo, Vincent says, was a gift from Professor Gast. And something along the lines of 'science and the planet lived side by side in that old man's heart'.

x) Yes. Gast fan right here. There's precious little about him though! :<
noxfoxArts Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
hmmm... I so wanna grab my PlayStation and play this part... or install an ISO version on my PSP... I've gotta do this soon!
thanks for the information, I'm so blaming myself for missing this (I tried my best to talk to every character as much as possible all along the game, even noting dialogs on post-its... hundreds of post-its ^^;)

I liked Gast until he left Shin-Ra and didn't come back to face his error regarding JENOVA when he knew she wasn't a Cetra. I tend to think that's even the reason he left, he didn't know how to stop the experiments, couldn't kill Sephiroth or what and so he ran away (I hardly believe Shin-Ra would just let go such a brilliant scientist). I don't hate him though^^
I wonder what's your opinion about him. It's true there's so few about him that it's hard to have a clear idea on the character.
CrimsonSun Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2010
I think Gast got cold feet as he progressed further into the Jenova Project, what with his morals and all. Hojo used that hesitation to usurp his position (by telling Shinra Gast is trying to sabotage the project, or something). Of course, Shinra wouldn't want to let go of Gast, because he was a brilliant scientist, but also because he knew too much (they were conducting experiments in Nibelheim, after all - I think the whole project was supposed to be super hush-hush). Plus, who knew what they were planning to do with Ifalna at the time!

I think Gast is a man full of regrets. I RP him occasionally - and he's never forgiven himself for...anything. Especially on the Sephiroth sector. Lucky Gast died before he found out what Sephiroth would become. :(

...I'm planning to go into a bit of this stuff in my doujinshi. x) ...and sorry for the blab, lol. I love Gast and so few people want to know about him (or know about him at all, haha!) :)
noxfoxArts Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
That's an interesting point of view :) It feels very credible seeing both Gast and Hojo. Somehow I tend to think their relation may also have been a bit like Edison and Tesla, with Gast as Edison and Hojo as Tesla, Gast used Hojo's works and managed to get the fame because Hojo only cared for science and looked like a crazy dangerous freak, even if he had great ideas... :roll:
I was somewhat inspired of this for Key of the Twilight^^

I really enjoy seeing different takes on characters^^ and every character. Doing RP must be nice to get to know them. I tend to think it's also nice to try to love all the characters even if it's about loving to hate them, sometimes it brings surprises.

I'd like to see that doujin when you publish it!^^

There's really not enough Grimoire art out there ^^;
Mariejol Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2010
Great, I like this Hojo.
atharvaveda27 Featured By Owner May 27, 2010

Where did you get the name Faramis from? And how did you know Bugenhagen was a Shin-Ra scientist?

I'm just curious, I've not heard of this material before.
CrimsonSun Featured By Owner May 27, 2010
No prob. ^^

Faramis - or, I think it's supposed to be spelled 'Faremis' now (like the whole Verdot versus Veld thing) - comes from one of the Ultimania Omega volumes. The earliest one, I think... I'm not sure how many volumes there are now with all the new canon.

And Bugenhagen being a Shinra scientist is something Vincent says, if you talk to him on the Highwind while going to Cosmo Canyon to watch Bugenhagen's planetary light show. :) Can't remember the exact quote, but it referred to Bugen and Gast being good friends, and that's why I remembered, because I'm a Gast fan. ^^

Your FF work is amazing. ;o; I can't stop faving ittt.
YamiMichelle Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2009
Hollander is his first name and Hewley is his last name. ^^;

Anyway, you drew them very nicely. To me, Hojo looks like he's saying" bring it on!"
CrimsonSun Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2009
Hewley? I always thought Angeal didn't know he was Hollander's son? And it would've been hard to ignore if they shared the same last name?

But I haven't played CC so I wouldn't know. o.o ...I thought Angeal might have taken up his mother's maiden name since...Hollander was sorta absent as a father... But again, speculation. xD and I really just like saying 'Eugene Hollander', hehe.

And thanks. ^^
YamiMichelle Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2009
I think he knew. There was a part where Hollander mentioned something about "our child" and Angeal got angry, and then Hollander said something like "then do it for your mother" so I think Angeal knew.

I am glad to see some really interesting NPC fanart! I love them all, thanks for doing this! +fav!^^ (Lucretia is my Nr.1)
Xejicka Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2009
I do like the mad scientists. I'm crazy for them.

Shalua is the prettiest one, even if she did failed the lab safety tests like I did. XD

Hojo... I am a fangirl... In denial. Cosplaying him is one thing, while welcoming abuse, because it's funny. But having dreams of being Lucrecia is another. Oh well.

Grimiore makes the badass scientist. He's Vinnie's dad and he has an awesome name like Grimiore. His nick name is Grim, for crying out loud!

Yes, I'm obsessive, is that okay?
fynewyne Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2009
Hojo: :finger: Bitch, I can't help it if I'm hot.

Bugenhagen: :meditation: Your delusional narcissism doesn't hold a candle to my adorable old-man-ness. Don't I look like pretty young women come and coo at me? I do. I do indeed.

Crim, ilusomuch :tighthug:

:woohoo:You did :earth:Bugenhagen:earth: art:la:

Hey, hey listen! You should do more Bugenhagen art. :turbopoke: He is one foxy old dood.

Oh, oh, and because I'm on an emoticon kick and this one is awesome:

Okay. MY opinion of them looks-wise, according to the order you placed them in. Ugly, ugly, slut, cute, hot, REALLY hot, Exquisitely beautiful, weird.
CrimsonSun Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2009

But then again, you just called Hojo really hot. So we can hardly trust your judgement of appearances. :XD:

And thanks! ^^

Um, I'll take it back for you, but Hojo is my main man!

cursedchaos13 Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
**Warning: I'm sugar high at this point**

SQUUUUUUUUUEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! Oh... I don't know who to tackleglomp first!

Hollander (though INSANELY adorable above! X3 Sammich!) is my official reason why I do not want the original FFVII redone for 3-D gaming. Why? If I had to fight Hojo that way, I'd sadly lose all respect for him. Even if the fighting system stayed the same, I'd hate to see Hojo have to throw something down and POOF! one of those freaky experiments pop up. Just not right...

Plus he runs like a FREAK! (But I bet Hojo would stand still and just say "BRING IT!" XD)

Grim: YAY! LOONY WITH THE CAPE!! ... Damn oekaki board... that's what I think of whenever I see him!! XD *hums The Raider's March* XD

Gast... I hardly knew ye... but he's still cute! *chibi!love*

Shalua just owns with her outfit... it.. just... wow. I wish I'd look that kick ass... but keep my arm... I like my appendages, kthx.

EEEEEEEEE!! Hojo's canon fanboy, who like all good fans, attempted to kidnap the source of their hero worship. n_n But I saw Fuhito's form up there, and started screaming to get the crazy Reaper away from me.. I've been playing The World Ends With You too much... ^^;

Burgenhagen... I need to play FFVII for reals now... I have it on my PSP, but I'm so close to the end of Crisis Core that I want to finish it before I start the original. (ZAACK!! WHY!! .. wait, That doesn't help! ;_; )

And now for my favorites: Hojo and Lu! *fangirl attack* Lu looks so darn cute. It makes me want to crush her in a hug. Hehe... And Hojo... he's doing that "BRING IT!" look I talked about earlier.. EEEEE!! *MOAR CHIBI!LOVE*

I know who to tackleglomp now! YOU!! MWAHAH!!

LUV's from (SUGAR HIGH! YAY!) Khaos
CrimsonSun Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2009
Hahaha! Yep dear, you certainly sound like you're on a sugar high. :XD:

Umm... have you exhausted this chibi thing yet.... Ah, NO! XD

Okay! :D Here we go:

Hollander: As if the wing wasn't good enough, I LOVE THE FACT THAT HE IS EATING A SANDWICH! :D That is so Hollander!

Gast: Poor guy. Looks like he has got a headache, but I do love his little coffee cup. And he would have been a wonderful daddy to Aerith!

Shalua: Two Words. Kick. Ass. She knows she is a badass and she will go for it.

Fuhito: I have never played Before Crisis so I know nothing about him... but from that outfit and that lovely look... MAN HE IS HOT! :D :w00t::w00t:

Grimoire: I just love this guy. I really do! HE SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN MORE SCREEN TIME AND MAYBE EVEN A CUTE MOMENT WITH HIS SON! Grimoire is made of so much epic win and that pose ROCKS OUT! And man, that cape! Great job on him. Too thumbs up!

Hojo: Just... perfection. He is... wow! Just looks great and that pose has HOJO written all over it! GOD PLEASE KEEP DRAWING HIM! :D :glomp::glomp::glomp:

Lu: I have to admit, she does look adorable and the effect with her hair is really touching!

Bugenhagen: Don't know him too well, but he does look very cute! :D

TWO TUMBS WAY UP! :D :glomp:

And I know, I owe you a story big time, I just need to find the inspiration! Don't worry, I haven't forgotten! :hug::hug::hug::hug::hug:

'Grim=Indiana Jones in Crim's mind, for whatever strange reason'

It's not too hard to see with pretty much the only things he actually does on screen (and the scarf). However now I'm kinda imagining him running around with a fedora.
CrimsonSun Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2009
I just imagine old Grim to be the kind of scientist who gives a lot of lectures, has a whole group of fangirls and probably a fanclub on Facebook, spends most of his time in the biggest, most ancient library in the state, and then, occassionally, KICKS UTTER ASS. XD

JUST LIKE INDIE! ...God I love Indie. ^^

I did forget that Bugenhagen was a scientist who was friends with Professor Gast. :ohnoes: Now I must replay FF7 yet again.

I see Lucrecia is decidedly devoid of tentacles, lolz.
CrimsonSun Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2009
That tentacles remark just makes me want to draw all the crazy scientists in their crazy form. As much as I love Lifeform, Fuhito's mad monster form beats Hojo's hands-down.

Re Gast, it's something Vincent says on the Highwind if you bug him at the right time (I think, when you're on your way to Cosmo Canyon for that night show Bugen puts on). I only noticed because I was on the hunt for anything Gast-related. ^^ I loves me some Gast, mmm. b:
