Barbariccia, one of the Four Fiends, Elemental Lords from Final Fantasy IV.
From a project at my Sister's Project community.
[And NO, this IS NOT inspired from the Hyadain song going around, I listened to that a LONG time ago and already drew something for that, hohoho.]

Ahhh, I first played this game back in the day, on the SNES when it was called "Final Fantasy II" and this chick's name was "Valvalis". ;p In any case though, whatever name you want to call her this is seriously an AWESOME picture; I love the perspective and the use of light is just gorgeous! Total instafave~! :+favlove:

Yep, Valvalis was the initial name given for the first translation of Final Fantasy IV/4 [for the US, II/2]. Barbariccia is her original name. I just always prefer to call characters by their rightfully given names. ♥

Kind of like how Rydia=Lydia I guess. :)

And like I said, whatever her name may be or what people call her, doesn't change the fact that this is a great artwork! Kudos dude! :)

Well, no, Rydia *is* Rydia... not the whole "L's are R's" thing... nonono.
[keeping it FFIV] Kain is Cain, and Milon's original name is Scarmiglione. Things like that.

Well I have a Final Fantasy artbook by Amano (which I purchased long after I originally played FFIV... I was seriously a kid back then) and it has her listed as "Lydia". I'm assuming that's legit considering it's officially licensed merchandise. :p

Good perspective, and I like how the hair spins around the whole pic. But, where are her legs? And the pinky looks funny.
That's right, the PINKY. I'm super-critical, yo!

hehe, I use my own hand for reference in my images... so I guess my own pinky looks funny? Hahaha!
If you knew the character, you'd know why she has no "legs" in this picture!

... especially if it's the "I will heal myself for 9999, and revive Levithan,
and kill off two of your members - Rosa and Cecil, and then rape you in the
@$$!"
head... god I hate that head... ehehehehe!

....that MUST be in the newly released FFIV otherwise I've had it lucky all these years when I've replayed the SNES! But srsly, you scare me with these words of "heal 9999" and "revive leviathan". ESPECIALLY the latter...
Either way I hate those heads, soooo many times dead!

BARBARICCIA! HA!

So.... LOL, you're gonna draw Scarmiglione, right? *snicker, shudder!*

I love the way you drew her, by the way. (The hair! The hair! Totally not Hair Flair Barbie!)


Is there a pair of sexy legs in your artistic future? (And yes, I need to return to Tegaki, lol)

I was just thinking today on my girl-crush on her. <3 I haven't beaten her yet because the Magnet Cave is kicking my ass.

I just heard the song about a week ago or so for the first time, and it turned on my Elemental Lords fire that I've had for YEARS, but this makes me extra happy. ILU KARN. :U
