Storywise as well as literally there and back again all across the worldmap, specifically Insomnia, you kind of could turn this game into a Hobbit-adventure, complete with goofy sidekicks, random weird cameos and at least three people speaking either too polite to understand wether they just insulted you or not, or on complete riddles. Also, an angry wyrm.
Done for the birthday of a friend who wished for this old-ass scetch to turn into a huge-ass poster.

Noctis and Ardyn belong to SE, just like my soul.
Rest is by me.

I think Ignis would have a hernia if the rest of the bros all started requesting a Hobbit's daily meal plan, though. XD
Great posing here!  :D I like how hesitant Noctis looks, considering what we know that ring will do to him, but also the determination he has to put those feelings aside and save the world.  And then Ardyn continues to be shrouded in mystery, with a dash of his signature gentleman's act with the tip of his hat, the unexpected main baddie, completing the look of two Chosen Kings ready to fight for the same end but for different causes!  Man, this game.
I'll bet your friend loved this as a birthday present!

*is a bit speechless rn* Oh wow - thank you for your eloquence - you managed to put into proper words what I only always incoherently screech about XDDDDD Thank you so much for this comment!
And I´m very happy to say that yes, she was delighted! It´s now on her wall above the couch, much to the puzzlemet of her cat since that is kind of right above it´s favourite loafing-place.

Aw, you're very welcome!  :D  The secret is to word vomit your feelz into the keyboard and run it though Google translate.  Sometimes it works, other times you get something completely unrelated, like "baked potato." :|
Lately I've just been trying to be better about commenting on art that I like, because getting feedback is one of those great motivators, ya know?
Awww~!  Purrfect place for it!  Well, let's just hope the cat is okay with sharing its resting place, because let's be honest, if it came down to a brawl between Noct, Ardyn, and the cat, the cat would totally win.

I´ll remember that! XDDD
Google translate really works for you? Woha, that is amazing! If I try to use it translating ANY language, all I get is an incoherent mumbo jumbo XDDDD What was the orignal to the baked potato one? *curious*
And you´re absolutely right, comments are the things that in the end really show how the audience percieves the stuff one creates, and it´s the one thing I personally remember - fav something, great, you´ll get a thank you, but comment on something and these words will be engraved forever in the back of my head. Preach these words! XDDDD
And I also agree on the last one - the cat wins. Especially this particular cat.

Nah, that was just my sad attempt at being funny since Google translate is notorious for being bad. XD  As a result, baked potato seems like something it would randomly come up with, even if you put something simple like... "Hola".  Guess I was just hungry when I typed that, lol.
Yeeessssss!  Seeing people fave your work is great - not to make light of that at all! - but to hear why they liked it is a whole other ball game.  Did you like the coloring?  The style?  Or maybe you just like these characters and want to see more of them?  And even if you get stumped and don't know what to say, just a simple, "This looks nice!" can really put a pep in an artist's day. :3
Sounds like this cat has a reputation. XD  Then again, what cat doesn't?

Ah okay. Tho it really is notorious enough for something like this to really happen. As a last resort, some classmates and me use it for instand-japanese translations, since having something hilariously wrong written down is always better than having nothing at all, and we already had the weirdest sh*t. One of our teachers always encourages us to spin stories out of the poorly translated crap, so that´s a fun way to pass your time, and can be really inspiring for writing. XDD
Amen to all of that :D. Same with tags on tumblr - it´s always nice to see what it was that made someone think "Ima reblog dis"

And yeah, this cat is a real...oh well...let´s just say, my cat is deathly afraid of her, which is really saying something. Once a friend brought her dog with her on a visit, and Rin (that´s her name) straight up nearly murdered him - and mind you, he´s a big dog, some caucasian shepherd-mix. BUT she accepted the poster as change of her living space, so this cat at least approves of FFXV.

At least you can get some fun out of Google translate that way!  :D  Seems like your teacher's pretty cool for letting you guys do that, too.  Any interesting stories you guys were able to come up with?
Ah, tumblr tags!  That's true, too!  T.T Sadly, I can't always put comments in those, but I try to if I can think of something funny or witty at the top of my head.  Usually I'm too focused on making sure I get the ~~important~~ tags on there (because heaven forbid I don't tag something).

Aw, poor doggo. XD Sounds like your friend needs one of those signs that says "Beware of Cat".  Cats don't mess around.  If they don't like you, you'd best get off their turf.  At least it sounds like Ardyn and Noct are safe from the ferocious guard cat...for now.

Ahem...for some reason, all our stories would sooner or later end in brutal murder. Or aliens. Or both. Or it would go batshit-crazy, like in the stoty of the bureau fo forgotten birds (no shit, google translated this poetic nonsense), screaming watermelons, people drowning on air, praying seas and the forest of old germania being stuffed with men and bears. That´s what you get using google translate. It´s awesome, and inspiring beyond belief XDDD  We called our class-chronicles "The bureau of forgotten birds" simply because it really sounds like some surrealistic booktitle.
