Meliadoul vs Hashmalum by zeratanus Meliadoul vs Hashmalum by zeratanus
I can only imagine how Meliadoul would feel in this battle in FFT. I can't be sure, its been so long, but I'm fairly sure there's no conversation between them at the end of the game, which makes me sad.


Edit: I've actually read that there is a discussion between her and her father near the end of the game, before he transforms. Can anyone confirm this? Don't know when I'll get around to checking it out myself...

It could also be exclusive for the PSP version, though the site didnt specify that it was, and did specify for another bit of info right after...





---SPOILERS FOR FINAL FANTASY TACTICS ---
To put it shortly, Hashmalum is the Lucavi of the Leo stone that took over the body of her father and later murdered her brother all in a bid to revive the Bloody Angel, Altima.
---/SPOILERS FOR FINAL FANTASY TACTICS ---



as a side note, Meliadoul has the Save the Queen sword in Tactics, but the weapons in that game dont exactly have detail, so I copied the Final Fantasy 9 design :P

Final Fantasy Tactics fanarts.
Meliadoul and Hashmalum belong to Square
I deny the existence of Squinex or their bastardization of this classic

That sword looks like it will break very easily.

Wow, I actually have absolutely zero recollection of that entire battle. I'm kind of shocked at myself :laughing:.

Excellent work in this piece, zeratanus, especially the framing and perspective. Meliadoul was one of my favorite characters to use in Tactics, as well.

Thanks :D I've been toying with redrawing this piece lately, but I do still like it (Which is always nice, I think, to look back on older stuff and not just seeing it as junk :laughing:)

Ah Meliadoul~ Even in my gallery, Agrias gets all the love :no:

You're right. I didn't even think of that. I mean when I was fighting Adramellech it was pretty easy to think how upset Ramza must be. I mean, he loved his brothers and in ways they both betrayed him. I mean Zalbaag redeemed himself but still.

Game definitely could of done with a fair bit more dialog, especially in those kinds of events. But then, I suppose in the original version it was pretty badly translated anyway so it might of just come off as annoying drama... (Not that I like the new translation, but whatever =P)

Haha, I like the new translation. In places. I think it overdid it a bit. But somehow that's part of the charm. It makes it feel more like history.

I think the game had a fucktonne of dialogue. :lmao: I know what you mean though. Boss-dialogue is usually Ramza-centric. And they can't say they didn't write anything in case Meliadoul died because there are two events with Agrias after she can die, one at the gallows (if she's in your party) and another at Zeltennia.

Then again, what would she have said. 'Father, what have you become?' or 'Meliadoul, be you well?' 'I will be fine once I have slain this creature that wears my Father's skin.' or whatever.

Maybe Meliadoul's gone quiet with shock? :O

Who knows...? :( I really wish they did have SOMETHING between her and her former father.

Great picture! :wow: The dynamic pose is awesome, with her flowing robes and all that. Also love her determined/aggressive expression. :fight:

I always brought her along once I finally got her. Her break sword techniques are insanely strong. Dycedarc was helpless in a matter of seconds. :D

I love Final Fantasy Tactics and Meliadoul was always the coolest character in my opinion, well at least in appearance XD This is really awesome, I think it's time for a new desktop background!

With this battle they missed alot of oppertunity for plot and character development. I mean, her father is taken over by Lucavi. Her brother killed. And right before her the very creature responsable stands on a bid to revive an ancient evil.

Which in turn brings me to say, this is a great work. It's good to see someone look into that whole thing. I mean, shes not the most recgonized of the FFT characters, and probally not the most used. But the potential stands out here in your work. Which is good to see.

Thank you :)

and yes, I agree Square REALLY missed the mark with these two especially. It never sat well with me that as soon as someone was a permanent member of your team they were null for all the rest of the story (sans Mustadio). That they didnt (to my knowledge) even include something in The Lion War is just sad and lazy :\. but then I hate that whole shakespear infested rerelease anyway xD

Very very very good work. FFT is by far the better of the FF series.

Btw you think you could do up a picture of Altima? I've looked on the rest of DA, and no one on here seems to be able to make a good picture of her.

late reply I know D:. But now with DA's upgrades going through messages ISNT a total pain. woopie.

anywho, I have doodled Altima before, though nothing more than a head. She's definitely a possibility whenever Tactics pops up in my sketches again :)

Meliadoul is probably my favorite character of the game. The new PSP port is pretty good at handling the translation and new content. Still a huge fan and I believe Tactics is the best FF game of the entire series.

Anyway! To the artwork. Love the pose and the style you drew her in. Insta-fave!

This is quite beautiful. Meliadoul (perhaps more than Agrias) is very under utilized, story-wise, within the game. (It's too bad. They set up all of these complex relationships but by the end of the game they're all forgotten due to a game mechanic.)

This picture looks like it could have been drawn by Don Bluth. My father said that Hashmalum looks like he could have been in "Rock and Rule".
