Vivi Ornitier - FFIX Sculpt by TheLandoBros Vivi Ornitier - FFIX Sculpt by TheLandoBros
Yup, this is our latest Sculpt, Vivi Ornitier from the amazing game Final Fantasy IX (such a classic fairy tale.. gotta love it). Been wanting to sculpt this guy for quite some time for two reasons:
1. He's awesome, and looks cool and funny to sculpt.
2. Got this friend of mine who really loves this character.

So, when said friend's birthday approached, this was our chance!

Sculpted in super sculpey and painted with acrylics, he's about 30 cm tall and 15 cm broad, and looks pretty black magic. Wish I could sculpt the rest of the IX cast.. who knows, I just might!

Really struggles with this one, was done 10 minutes before I had to leave for my friends secret birthday party, quite stressful but hey, it all worked out in the end :)

Hope y'all like it~

* Said friend was pretty pleased with his birthday present ;D
**I really wish they'd do FFIX-2 instead of all the crappy sequeals Square keeps pressing out.- I mean, Crisis Core, 3rd Birthjday, X-2....c'moooon, IX was nice!
***Photo was taken with a crappy iPhone-camera.. sorry for that :/

This is phenomenal and deserves more favs. Amazing work. I don't know if I'd take an FF9 sequel with the way Squeenix is writing games these days... I'd sure as hell take a remake or at least an HD remastering.

Thanks! Glad you like it, been thinking of making more characters from this game.. but it takes so much time to do one... but eventually I might get to it : D THen I'd probably sculpt Beatrix : D

Yeah.. a HD_remake would be cool indeed *__*

I don't doubt it. They look hard to do too, as if it isn't hard enough to do a 2D picture... Beatrix would be grand though. Ever considered mini figures to sell???:D

Yeah, been thinking about it.. problem is these usually take quite some time, about 50-100 hours all in all, from nothing to finished.. and thus the price would have to be kind of high for me to be able to sit with it that amount of time... ad since people don't tend to realise that, usually I can't sell any of these since it would be to expensive even id I'd take a really bad hourly pay.

So I mostly just do these for free.. for birthdays and such : )

Sorry man, but I'm to damn busy :P Working 8 tp 5 everyday in the Video Game Industry, and then I get home and work even more, and then, sometimes, I sculpt stuff for me or for others and the list is long. So sorry, I can't xD
I reccomend you to try Sculpey yourself though, it's actually kinda easy! :D

Vivi is by far the cutest FF character in all of the FF games, and you did an amazing job representing him in 3D. When I look at his hat, it's like seeing something out of a picture book. He looks lovely with the base. But I kinda wished you drilled a hole in the foot and pegged him up that way though instead. It looks kinda painful right now... But even so, your friend is really lucky.

Thansk~Haha, yeah, unfortunately, there was a steel wire skelton in the way in the foot ;_; So I had to dril it in the middle.. but, next time I'll think ahead before I sculpt xD

Vilket akrylfärg-märke använder ni? Jag tänkte börja använda akrylfärger men behöver tips! Jag använder citadelfärger just nu men det blir lite konstigt.

Faktum är att jag kör mycket med Warhammer-färger, tycker de blandas riktigt bra. Men jag kör en del med "vanliga" Daler Rowney-tuber som man kan köpa i vanliga konstaffärer :) Märket "graduate", och märket "system 3" men aölla daler-rowney är la typ samma egentligen. Det goa med dem är att de är vattenlösliga och nice, så man kan mixa och washa lätt för goare övergångar! 30-nånting spänn per tub, köper några primecolors,. sen blandar jag resten själv : ]

Fan va nice! Tack för tipsen. Jag ska köpa in mer sculpey lera snart, kanske beställer akryl färger med. Citadelfärger är bra på vanliga små/halvstora figurer men jag ägnar mig mest åt stora ansikten och de färgerna har en tendens att göra så det ser "påmålat" ut när man gör större projekt

IX would be able to have an epic sequel... it was my first FF, and stands as my favourite x3

Make KUJA~! *cough* sorry, serious Kuja obsession...

Anyway yes! Epic job on Vivi!

TheLandoBros Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
A sequel would indeed be awesome :)
I'm sorry to say it but I probably won't ever sculpt Kuja xD
Not a fan of his I gotta admit :P
Might, as said, do some other character from IX sometime :)

IX's good enough to have a sequel :)
Ah. That's understandable then :P I guess the only way you'd sculpt him is if you were being paid?

Maybe then, but actually, I dunno if I could pull him off, not that good (yet) at sculpting faces, anime faces and such are pretty tricky :)
My comfort zone definitly is in the opposite direction, like Vivi, here, small, and baggy all over xD
Just like fantasy dwarves, my Nr. 1 Comfort Zone xD

Ah I see. That makes sense.
Even so, your sculpting here is impeccable on Vivi :heart:
It's nice to see custom sculpts of characters from IX. It was so under-loved.

A lovely sculpture, and just as you would expect Vivi to look! I'd definitely buy this! (If it was for sale and if I could afford it...)

This one is sadly not for sale, I've given it away as a gift xD
And, as said previously, it would not come cheap :( Too many working hours put into it!

But thanks a lot! Glad you liked it! :D

Thanks, glad you like him :P
The standard answer for that I'm afraid is: He took about a weeks hard time, without alot of sleep, so I would want alot of money to do another one xD
Seriously though, it's a shame but I put soo much time into these that they'de have to be kinda expensive if I would do comissions....

Also FFIX-2 is a brilliant idea, as Vivi and Eiko were only young the story could use them again as playable characters without any problems.

to be honest I think after FFIX it has all gone downhill, sorry if I upset anyone out there who disagrees but for me the golden era was FFII/IV, FFV, FFIII/VI and then a blip before FFIX. (verdict is still out of FFVIII as I have yet to play it)

Really? Well, I haven't got time to make on atm, but if you're serious I guess we could talkt about it, a word of warning though, this one took it's sweet time, and the materials are far from cheap, so it would be kinda expensive really....:(
It's not my choice, so to speak, it's something I gotta say when considering the time it took, how much materials I put into it (wires, foil, clay, 2nd clay, spray, paints, base etc)
But yeah, if you're seriously intrested we might be able talk about it!

Great sculpt, but how they've avoided a lawsuit with the Masters of the Universe people is anyone's guess. This guy looks exactly like a recoloured Orko except for the fact his cloak is shorter showing his legs.
