FFXIII: Bookmark Illustrations by karniz FFXIII: Bookmark Illustrations by karniz
Edit: Oh, this bothers you? I'm happy it does!

Drawn: June 2010
Program: Painter IX
From: Final Fantasy XIII/13

What be these?! Chibi's?! Yes. These were actually illustrations done for a plentiful series of bookmarks that I lovingly hand-crafted and had for sale during Anime Next 2010. They did pretty well, amazingly enough. But I think I made too much of certain people and not enough of others...

But yes, here is the Final Fantasy XIII crew! I haven't really played enough of the game to do many of the other characters, but I did get up to meeting Fang... so at least I got to see the main cast in action! It's a fun game, now only to get myself some more time to sit down and PLAY it! Hehe~

Favorite characters are Sazh and Fang... they're hot shit. ♥

God they're so adorable. I loved to have one these myself.

Snow has his moments...but most of my love for him is because of a love Troy Baker. >_>
Fang and Vanille are my favorites.

Are you going to do one with the non playable characters of this game too? Like Serah and Dajh? I really like those two a lot!
karniz Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
at the time I didn't have as much time to work on these illustrations in time for the Convention so I had to negotiate doing those that were more popular.
Now as far as doing new characters, I also once again have to see if they'll sell well enough... Serah has a good chance, but not Dajh, probably.
[If it were a on-request type deal, I can do a bookmark or two as a personal commission, that way I'd HAVE to draw them... hhahahahaha]
But thank you. XD

I think I can honestly say that I liked everyone in the game except for Snow. But these are great~! Any plans in store for you doing Otakon next year?
karniz Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I can honestly say that Snow has his moments... I like how he isn't *too* cookie-cutter... but as I yell most of the time when playing: WHAT IS UP WITH HIS HAIR!? TAKE OFF THAT DAMN BEANIE YOU HIPPIE.
There, I said it. Haha! ♥
@ Otakon: I dunno. It all determines if I'll be able to go *with* someone... supposedly the AA there is a bit more strict on what you can show, so I have to prep with the proper arts... plus, I heard that the process to actually get a table is pretty crazy... so some research is in store. XD

Snow isn't so bad. Everything he does, he means well.
I just wish he would MATURE for God's sake! If a sequel comes out I hope that happens so I can go back to loving the Snow/Serah pairing the way I used to. Not absolutely loving Snow/Serah stinks! Especially since it's CANON ;_;

And yeah, change their outfits too XD

Yeahhhh, I won't spoil anything, but I will say that he looks like a douchebag. Or, like, a stay member of Linkin Park (I don't like Linkin Park. D|)

Right, right. I wasn't aware that the restrictions had tightened up so bad. I do know that if you make too much money/buy up too much table space, you have to do business in the dealers' room, but that was only because of this one douchebag who bought up 9 tables a few years ago and acted like they were different artists. >_< Actual registration for tables only opens up 2 weeks prior to the con, which is ass-pain. I think I gotta stay focused if I want a table for myself. And they're expensive, too. :/ (Everything in Maryland is expensive.) I would like to see you at a con again, tho. :3

Oh my god! Leona Lewis killed Fang and is now disguised as her, waiting to kill the rest of the group in their sleep so the game so the game will be 100% all about HER! (as if her crappy song wasn't bad enough)

These are so adorable! The two ladies on the ends are my favorites. <3 The guys in the middle...those grins... I haven't played the game and yet their chibi selves scream so much about their personalities.
dyko-chan Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2010
Oh FF13...
I have such a love/hate with this game like many...
But I can say nothing but love for these bookmarks. Wish I could've snagged one.
karniz Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
hehehee, I hear ya. Currently I *like* it, but I don't LOVE it [like I was 100% of the time w/ FFIV, FFVI, and FFXII] ... I think that the battles could be better, but the constant amount of cutscenes and the very showy visuals make me dizzy sometimes... [I'm more into the final fantasy series being more, y'know, fantasy. Not sy-fy... haaaa...]
