Program: Pen + Painter IX
From: Final Fantasy IV

Drawn to sell as a print at Anime Next 09'.
I've always wanted to draw the entire hero cast from Final Fantasy IV... since the last time I did actual fan art was when I played the game... and that was when I was in the 4th grade! hahahah... I don't even think I really *drew* back then either!
But anyway. With FFIV DS in my poessession [and I have yet to play it!] I drew this... oh, how I love the characters of FFIV...

Incase anyone was wondering, FFIV is my 2nd favorite Final Fantasy title.

Please keep your comments about the illustration.

A certain Prince Spoonster looks a little short. I'd be pretty nervous too if I had to stand next to the guy that bitch slapped me when I first meet him.

Ahahahaha best moment of the game!

Saiyakupo Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2010
OMG. EEEEEEE! Edge has Rydia's hand! WEEEEEEEEEEE! This is so wonderfully amazering of an artwork! *3* I love how you captured everyone your own way, and how it kind of looks like their all looking down at the same dead corpse (us). And how Kain is so very tall, and how Edward's heart looks like he is just all in PAINNNN. I love all their expressions, you did everything beautifuly! ^w^ <333 :+fav:

Dark Cecil kinda looks like Batman.
karniz Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I didn't include Dark Knight Cecil... that's Kain.
[And he is definitally more like Batman than Cecil is... hehe!]
wetpaint Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
This is awesome! I love the design aspect of it too. Great!!
balba-bunny Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2009
You capture the characters very well in this piece. I adore how you can tell Edge's genuinely smiling under his mask being happy to hold Rydia's hand. Good choice of background color too, it really brings them together :D
karniz Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
yes, he is really just spazzing out at his catch of the day. ^^
Thank you! I adore the cast from Final Fantasy 4, so I was so happy to draw this! Heehehe. My inner fangirl was screaming.
HakuIsCheesy Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2009
Whoa...this is amazing! And it has all the playable FFIV characters in it...spectacular job!
yumifan Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2009
Amazing^^ You even added Fusoya, even though Tellah appear as well. "Your spoony bard!!" Rydia looks really hot as well^^
karniz Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Gotta respect FuSoYa's grand beard.
and I absolutely LOVE Tellah. ♥
Thank you~

I love this game, and this picture! Good job. Have you ever played the hard version of FFIV? It's one of the hardest RPGs I've ever played. What's your #1 favorite Final Fantasy game?
karniz Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
by "hard" version, do you mean one of the re-releases that ISNT the original SNES version, then yes. I played the GBA version to completion and I am going to be starting the DS version quite soon... hehehe!
My favorite, hands down, is Final Fantasy VI.
And FFIV is dead second. Such good, old, classic games. ♥
dietpillz Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2009
I believe the GBA is the hard version. I know that the Final Fantasy Chronicles and Nintendo DS versions definately are. That one probably is though.

And about six..
That is my favorite game ever. I recently beat it with my room mate simultaneously. We had three tvs set up and we would play on two and watch MST3K on the third. Got our guys to 99. So much fun.
kimikofiregirl Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2009
Love this picture! XD I like Edge and Rydia up there. To by honest I actually ended up trying to look at the upside-down people by turning my head upside down. I'm pretty sure I looked pretty funny but it was worth it XD
superblooper123 Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2009
wow i love this :) i like how you were able to get rydia's hair to look. the 3D render of her hair in the DS game looks like frozen vomit
