Egged On by AshleyCope Egged On by AshleyCope
I did most of this silly thing ages ago (you may remember it from screenshots) and then put it away for a long time because of its gross stupidity. Now it's back! And finished! And still really stupid!

When I think of FFXII I think of running around enormous and incredibly detailed fields bathed in beautiful light, and slaughtering things. Somehow I think that Balthier wouldn't realistically stay interested in this for long.

Egged On by =ShardGlass. From the suggester: "Aside from being impossibly and beautifully detailed, the one thing that strikes me as different about this is that it isn't a pose - it's not the gorgeous game girl modelling her costume while the hero looks morosely on. This is an image of action where everything about it is alive and catching your attention." ( Suggested by Audley and Featured by aunjuli )

Hey look....this is the only Final fantasy I've played xD

I like the look that they're shooting each other. They've collectively agreed "Fuck you Vaan!" Nothing says true love like working together to screw a jackass out of your hard earned loot.

cannorachan Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2011  Student Filmographer
That is exactly how I think of Final Fantasy XII too! xD And also why I love it ;u; I've always loved games with a beautiful landscape and cool monsters.
You did an incredibly good job at drawing this! It really does the characters justice. Especially Vaan xD

Raphaella Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2010
Whoa, incredible work. Amazing coloring and the sense of action is brilliant.
nekokyuuketsuki Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2010
Yeeeaaahhh, now that I think of it... Other than his dad, doesn't Balthier have pretty much nothing to do with the storyline?
AshleyCope Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
Whatchu say? Balthier's the leading man. If Balthier and Fran hadn't rescued Vaan he probably would have died when the palace was attacked. Even if he was only arrested he never would have escaped the prison without their help and would have been murdered by that gang of Seeq. Without Balthier, the party wouldn't have had the knowledge to infiltrate Archadia and the labs, either. Balthier and Fran enable a lot that happens actually, both with their fighting prowess and with the Strahl. It's Balthier's curiosity, shame, and emergent sense of responsibility actually, that partly drives the party on.

So I'd say Balthier is a much more important character than either Vaan or Penelo. You could lose those two and make it work, but you couldn't lose Balthier.
nekokyuuketsuki Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2010
Well, I meant personal interest-wise. I know he had a lot to do with the technical stuff.
But I suppose he had SOME sympathy for Vaan or something.

Lol, I wasn't bashing or anything. Balthier and Fran are my favorites XD
Vaan's only prowess is being the main character. Penelo had that thing going with Larsa, but not much else. So yeah, I see what you mean with those two.
AshleyCope Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
Sorry, man, I'm defensive ;)
nekokyuuketsuki Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2010
lol, s'okay.
