Agrias shortly after the final battle, because I dont think you could go through the Dead City, fight multiple Zodiacs, and escape an exploding airship unscathed
Agrias is love.
Just something I drew and thought I'd CG (Rofflewut!? Zera fully CGing a picture?!?).
Time - ~5-6 hours? i donno
Agrias belongs to Squaresoft (I deny the existence of SquareEnix)
2012 Edit Redrew this! NEW PIECE! CLICK!
I love this. Most people depict Agrias so soft and elegant in most pics I've seen. This is definitely refreshing. The best part is the clear stab through the chest. Implying her revival. I imagine the was thrusted by the...the...giant rape lions? Forgot the name, but their insta kill ability is quite a number. Good shit man.
It's sad that they never showed what happened to Cid, Mel, or Agrias after that final battle except for Ramza running off into the sunset with Alma... such a cliffhanger!
Enough of my ramblings, I love this picture and it's fierceness! xD
But still, you put sqaureEnix in perspective to other companies and it's amazing! there isn't much that can go up against a game from sqaureEnix.
And while I'm not a fan of the series, Kingdom Hearts seems to be falling apart too. The trailer I saw for the 3rd game... does EVERYONE have a keyblade now? I played the first game and the keyblade was some kind of godly mystical item but now everyone and their mother has one. It's like their version of DBZ's Super Saijin - Starts out as the coolest thing in the world but by the end of the series EVERYONE can do it AND its basically worthless.
And then of course they filled Tactics with Shakespearean dialect which is just overly painful and ruins any authenticity to the characters which before seemed more real than any other FF's even with their minor engrish (bar quest dialog aside ).
I'm not saying they're the worst thing in the world. But they sure as hell are nowhere near the level they should be, as both companies were amazing before the merger (except FFX, but thats a rant for another day ).
I agree with you in the fact that FF 12 was a game that could be allot better, I mean, the main character didn't even have a reason to go with the rest of the party. he really was just fascinated with being in the air. but it wasn't all lame. the leveling up system was only slightly similar to FFX, but it was other wise, original. The fighting style was something iv'e never seen in another game before. but the main point of an rpg is the story, so ya, it was pretty lame.
As for kingdom hearts, we already knew that there were allot of different Keyblades, the trailer just told us how many. the thing that makes a difference is that only people with strong hearts and desires are the ones who can use keyblades. And the way they took disney character and Final Fantasy characters in threw them in one game was a long shot for them, put they pulled it off well. One of the reason's I like kingdom hearts is for the story. you CANNOT say that kingdom hearts has a lame story. the writer, Tetsuya Nomura, is amazing.
Another reason I love the SqaureEnix company is the cinematic quality of their games. I mean, they made a movie with that same style! And it was Awesome! Well, there was a point in Advent Children where I was so disappointed that I slapped my head, but that was from Japanese to American culture transfer.
As for kingdom hearts - The first game was decent. I will admit I enjoyed (most of) it. But it was squaresoft's game, not Enix and by most accounts KH2 didnt do too much story or gameplay wise that KH1 didnt do besides add a bunch of yaoi bate . But I cant really argue this - I never played 2 or chain of memories, so if you disagree I don't have anything but the word of others to argue with, and that's not enough for me
As for the movie: Advent Children was awesome, indeed. But it doesnt make up for that bullshit that was Spirits Within. I was a just a kid and one day away from moving to another state when I went to see it with my best friend. "Wow," I think, "FINAL FANTASY MOOOOVIIIEEE!!"... but... guh... no... total bull...
But I actually did have a doodle of another FFT related pic (this time Ramza and the final Zodiac) but it'd need to be redrawn first :B
