Locke Cole by Zomburai Locke Cole by Zomburai
The finished version!

Doing fanart for FFVI is tougher than one might think. Yoshitaka Amano's gorgeous character designs run on pure, clean-burning impressionism and surrealism, the actual game sprites are lacking in a great amount of detail, and the two frequently disagree with each other. Locke, for example, is decked out in black pants, jacket, and bandana with white accents, while the in-game sprite has a blue headband and blue vest with beige accents.

I decided to go with a dark blue to split the difference between the two, and I truly love the contrast of high-saturation reds and blues, so I added red as a main accent color.

This was a pretty fun exercise! I'll probably be doing more of these.

Man, I'm with you there. It's amazing how much of FFVI still holds up, and how much it could be improved with an HD remake. (FFVII, by contrast, would really just look shinier, I think.)
