Dressphere Request Update

Wed Jan 16, 2008, 1:30 AM
Really just some more info as some great ideas have come my way.

Further detailing the requirements of this, I'll bullet point the relevant and great ideas info so far.

- This is for Dead Fantasy III, so the deadline is beginning of April where I anticipate being that far in the project.

- I am asking for an ORIGINAL design. I'm doing this cause I want you to see your design in my movie

- I will be modeling it, all I'm really asking for is a quick drawing, maybe even if it's an idea well though out enough that I could draw myself.

- When the movie's done I want to be able to point to your artwork and give you full credit when people say "where's that dressphere? How come I didn't see that in the game?"

Because the ideas have been so awesome I'm thinking I shouldn't limit it to just one. So I'm ready and willing to cut out a few of the existing dresspheres I planned for to fit yours in. I wasn't really a fan of the secondary designs anyways.




Some Suggestions/Guidelines about what I'm hoping for:

Not too comical - I.E. Mascot, Trainer, Berserker, lady luck, they're kinda pushing it as far as designs go. This movie is pretty serious actually. When I think about the previz, it's pretty hard hitting. So I don't want to put something in that'll distract the viewer.

Must fit Rikku's Style - She has a generally warm color pallete and high yellows. She's also wearing things on the skimpy side, but the designs that work well on her are still more or less tastefull

This is still a fighting movie - Which means it still has to be something that's mobile, so I anticipate having a pretty tough time with ones like Black Mage that aren't built for high movement.



Some good ideas so far:
Ninja Dressphere - this one's cool cause she's fighting a Ninja, I like the idea of seeing her with a sword on her back, but she's already got 3 dresspheres with swords. Maybe mixing it up a bit? I thought something with chains like Nariko or Kratos would be cool!

Dragoon - Because it's a pretty cool nod to the older Final Fantasies and wasn't there in FF-2. PLus no one yet is in the fight who has a spear.


I also fully support if you were to com up with you original dressphere idea as well! Give it a back story! Support it with details! The more the better.

Some examples given:
Martial Artist - I like the idea of a more grounded design, plus this one would be easy since I have a lot of motion data I've generated already for simple hand to hand. Also Tonfas were suggested for this cause they're cool.

Puppeteer - When I hear this I think of her using anime type wires. I don't see where this'll fit in the sequence I have planned, but it is a cool idea nonetheless.

English Chap - 'cause Jfak is oh so silly

Bondage Gear - For Sexiness!!



This is awesome!!! Maybe if there are enough that come my way I could make a poll and we could vote on it!!!

First I want to say love Dead Fantasy, can’t wait for part two, your work is awesome.

And I made a entry for your request. I though along the line of cyberpunk/hacker for Rikku because she’s a thief and good with mechanics. Now a days that would probably translate into hacker.

Hey

this is like a super rough un-complete proto version wich i done in paint, if you like them enough i'll do some decent more-finalized drawings of them w/ more detail and from various angles. If i carry on with them i dunno what weaon all go with, someone mentioned a sniper rifel wich seems like a cool idea = P

i originally did the yellow dresphere then changed my mind on colour, several times lol.

[any body] feel free to give me some critisism, be it either good or bad, thanx!!

I've just scanned my idea for a Tao Rikku. Once it's colored it I'll post it up.

Basically it'll be a cross between a martial artist and a magician, something to counter most of Kasumi's and Ayane's ninja magic. She'd be blindingly fast, wielding chained spearheads either held in hand with the chains around her wrists, or thrown ala Scorpion or Kratos. The magician side is covered by what I've taken to calling Zen walls; a magical barrier about a metre wide each way from which Rikku can jump in mid air. They'd only last a few seconds, but when used rapid fire Rikku'd be easily able to keep up with the ninja girls' teleporting and own high speed.

What about an Esper (from FFVI) dressphere? Based on Terra's Esper transformation from that game, this would be used greater magical power is needed, particularly to boost one's own fighting prowess.

An example picture of how Esper-Terra looked is here: [link]

Rikku's could be yellow-ish instead of pink. Between the form and the aura/haze around it, she'd be sexily naked, without anything explicit being seen. And if it's too much, you could have it naturally end after a short time (like in the game), putting her back into whatever dressphere she was wearing before that.

Esper-Rikku in Dead Fantasy III!

I've sent you a note already, but to be thorough, I'll post it here, too.

I'm supporting the Dragoon idea:
[link]

The drawing is a very quick sketch. I can redraw and details you might need if you want. Heck, you can even change anything you want from the design, too.

Also I need to redesign the spear since I just tossed that in so she was holding something. I originally had a chain coming off the end of the handle, too, but I wonder if that's too far from the conventional dragoon.

Ok so I got my ideas out:
"Rider" Rikku How cool would it be if Rikku went "GET OVER HERE!!"

Alt. Samurai Costume The more I look at it, the more I think Rikku wouldn't wear anything that baggy.

Then I just started to have fun:
Bruce Lee Costume If she fought with her fists.

"Voldo" Costume I suppose this could fit under fetish...

I was thinking that would be kinda cool if Yuna could summon something and then have the DOA girls take it down....along that line of thought of original X costumes....I was thinking that you could use Rikku's Godhand as that "burning arm" thing shyft9 was talking about....it would be cool if she could use it to lift heavy stuff and punch harder....probably making her as strong as the other fist fighters but faster....

I like the where the rider one is going I was always a fan of her character, I wonder what sort of detail I might be able to put on top of it. Her mini dress was really hot.. And the Bruce lee one is a cool thought, I'd definitely have reference for moves to be done with that style. THanks for putting the time in to helping me out. :)

What's your thoughts on using costumes that preexhisting Original Characters use. Yaknow, sorta promote the character by means of Swag? :D

montyoum Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2008  Professional Filmographer
Hmmm

I guess it depends on the character

like will it be a version of their outfit, sayyy Rikku Keyblade Dressphere. Or it is a complete copy of that character with Rikku's head? And is it preexisting final fantasy characters or just anyone in general?

I guess I made this request 'cause I wanted to see original designs on charactes we knew, but if the one you have in mind is cool enough or is justified in some way it might make sense.

I'm actually not that faimilure with any of these characters, other than Tifa. ^^; You mentioned a few things, but the character costumes I had in mind actually wouldn't fit into any of those slots. More like, Cyberpunk, thank anything else.

I just thought I'd pick your brain on that. I don't belive those costumes fit what you're looking for, but I just thought I'd ask. :thanks:

I really do love the ninja idea. It fits her, aside from thief of course lol. And I'm partial to Dragoon cuz I loves spears, but I don't see it for Rikku.

S'also very tempting to think of something else for her *ponders*

Mojinr Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2008
Unfortunately I'm no artist so I can't draw you out what I have in mind but I imagined Rikku in something of a "Weapon's Master" dress-sphere. An Al-Bhed all-in-one weapon that can transfigure from different phases and modes. Spear mode, sword mode, machete mode, kunai, sniper...etc.

Since you know Rikku always struck me as a Macgyver-ish with her ability in alchemy and mechanics I thought this would be perfect.

Clothing wise she'd probably wear a some steam-punk/warrior hybrid clothes. Or a cross between her Alchemy and Dark Knight dress spheres.

I seriously like the Dragoon idea.
See Rikku leap off into the sky, and then the camera focuses back on the rest of the fight for a moment, and about fifteen seconds later she lands HARD on one of the DOA girls.

So this is what I've done so far.

Fearless Rikku MAN!! I thought I was so original thinking of that 3 sectioned staff from Fearless. But ShaneNewville beat me to the punch...haha

Cheongsam Rikku Apparently its called a Cheongsam....the dress. I had to look it up.

Ninja Rikku KUNAI!!

Anyways...I still have one or two ideas in my head.....but thanks for the opportunity to do this.

Instead of a spear how about a staff? I was thinking of Goku's Staff which can grow longer. Rikku could use it as a weapon to hit opponents or could use it to propel herself towards an opponent. Or make a quick escape if things get to hairy.

I absolutely love the idea of Rikku using tonfas. As she used daggers held pointing outwards in X-2, tonfas aren't a far stretch at all. In fact, they mesh quite nicely. If I had an inkling of drawing talent that could be considered half-decent, I would put those tonfas onto something great, but alas I fail miserably as it is. Still wanted to give a huge thumbs up to a tonfa idea, though!

Hmmmm ...

why not a Blade Dancer Dress Sphear?


: 3

I imagin blade dancers would be dressed somewhat like a dancer, obvously. Yuna, Rikku, and Paine dressing as people from difrent countrys using difren dances. The blade would be like a sword, but with 5 blades comeing out of the handel in a fan shape.

What do you think of this idea?

Playing off the idea of a Ninja/
Assassin type, it would be cool
to have the traditional katana
on her back, but being a ninja/
assassin (pretty much the same thing) she could also have hidden
blades that slide out and for an
attack from her wrist area and/or
knee, heel, elbow, etc...

It would also be sweet to make
use of some of the other ninja
weapons/items from Tenchu
like smoke bombs to distract
her opponent. All kind of
illusionary treats. Think of
her being able to appear at some
point, as her enemy's ally to
just before an attack.

Or going a little more projectile
style, they may be able to shoot
off sort of like Scorpion's
"Come here" thing dong.

Another weapon (one of my
favorites) is the three-section
staff. But that might be harder
to animate. A good reference
of use in a more recent film is
Jet Li's Fearless. But that jets
a little more into kungfu style
than ninja. I've alway though
of ninja being Japanese and
kungfu is Chinese.

Have a look see at this drawing in particular. Sorry for the bad quality, but it kinda shows the detail in how the costume kinda has that "kinky" feel to it. It's worth a shot [link]

What about making Rikku a Neon fighter class

as in rikku is wearing her usual bikini strap, (perhaps some extra straps around the back) but in all neon colors, such as (bright green, yellow and blues, maybe some red.)

her weapon would consist of a single dagger, a bit longer than one she usually uses,

am i forgetting anything...
ah shoes. well the shoes would be high teck hooker-boots.

...if you like where im going with this let me know =)

i really want to design something since I've always had a knack for clothing design both in conceptual and real life application, though unfortunate I've never played final fantasy X2...

i'm guessing the by the description so far that these dress spheres not only change the characters appearance, but also their physical abilities and fighting style, yes?

since i remember riku being from a background in "forbidden" technology in the original final fantasy x, would it be a stretch to attemt to incorporate some of the mechanical designs from the game into a piece of weaponry or armor for the outfit...

for example, the first thing that came to mind as i was reading your suggestions was a kind of "buster sword" like the one cloud wielded in FF7, but since Riku is so small, it would be awkward for her to hold such a weapon without, lets say, a strength enhancing armor over the arm she uses to hold it. i can use elements of the mecha in ffx to design the armor, and of course still manage to incorporate a fitting clothing design to maintain the "bright" and "skimpy" aspects of Riku's tastes in clothing... i can have, at the very least, a concept sketch done by the end of this week if you would like an idea of where i'm heading with the design, but i want to know before hand if i'm heading in the right direction, or if this is not along the lines that you were thinking... ^_^

Well I ain't no artist so let me just pitch my idea here:

[i]Gladiator Dress Sphere[/i]: I envision a fairly scantily clad Gullwings member, probably with some variation on a Gladiators armour, wielding a Gladius and Shield; which may bear a design relevent to the characters, Gullwings or even yourself.

And with reference to the Bondage gear one, would the weapon there be some kind of whip? =P
