No.421's quickly thrown together Final Fantasy 9 FanPage...
There's not much to say other than... latest pics on top... stories and links at the bottom and... have fun. (sneaks away)
Final Fantasy © Square, all the pictures and stories here done by No.421 (McT)
playfire.gif/playfire.jpg - Uncolored/colored version of YET another 421 picture.. I know I should draw more Vivis and such, but I have a problem getting him right..! |><|
wingtrnc.gif - NEITHER does 421 have a trance-mode OR will ever have wings. This was just a ballpoint pen doodle caused by curiousity and too pretty to keep to myself.
tinymage.gif - Lots of random scribbles, but among them are those tiny Mages that I tested some basic shapes on.. I like the one on the upper right. |^^|
dagscrib.gif - 421 has a dagger, too. Also, for those who wondered how I start on drawing Black Mages - it's as random as that, starting with the circles for head and chest.
corin1.gif - This was the first picture I ever drew of my own Burmecian char.
morheads.gif - Ohh, found a couple more scribbles of Zidane, Dagger and Steiner heads I drew. (Er, and a What's-Her-Name head. And a random person with nice hair.)
megakuja.gif - TranceKuja! I had a computer-colored version, but it looked bad.
varchar2.gif - More Various Chars. A Vice, Nymph, Hopper, Grenade, Mu (shudders) and my best pic of Black Waltz 2 so far, whee!
varchar1.gif - Various Chars. The Fang is bleh, but Kuja and Black Waltz 1 came out nice on this one. |^^| And the little hopping Abomination is okay.
zidblank.jpg - Unfinished, but hey - Zidane and Blank arm-wrestling in a candle-lit room. I decided to color it on the computer juuust enough so that, with a bit of luck, you won't even notice it's unfinished. |^^|
profl421.jpg - One of my profile-pics for SPiN chat. Yah.
burmecin.jpg - Quite a while ago I made up my own Burmecian char, and finally I managed to draw a decent scribble. Stupidly, I forgot what I named her. Oh, and there's also a veryquicklydrawn 421 drawing stuff into the ground, like I do so often.
greenie.gif - Greenbeeni, the Black Mage who is green, beeny and belongs to Fork-O.
rain421.jpg - Started out as a very messy scribble, but I really like how it looks now. |^^| The architecture's pretty questionable, but 421 finally doesn't look so skinny anymore. 'm not skinny.
just421.gif - No.421 just standing around, staring.
coralmom.gif - Amarant's a mommy now! (And I should have just done that lizard-tattoo)
ragtimer.gif - Ragtimer is a really interesting creature. |^^|
grinmage.gif - A White Mage and two Black Mages like in some old official conceptional art... so strange and different, yet comfortingly familiar and fun-looking.
Moogles - Three random moogles: fuzzymog.gif, sleepmog.gif and, my favorite (heh), kuponut.gif.
Gilga - I can't help it but like the design of that guy with the many names. |^^| And while I was at it, I scanned all my main steps from a scribble to the coloring, so you can look at the Pencilsketch, Basic Ink, Finished Ink, Plain CG Color, Cell-style CG Color, Plain Marker Color and Marker and Pencil.
redmage.jpg - Another scribble of the not-so-random-anymore Red Mage gal.
lil421run.gif - Kitiara got the idea of a "baby $21" and.. I had to try and draw that. |^^| Um.. luv me? Help me? |^^|
lil421hide.jpg - Hiding from the evil Mu now...
staff421.jpg - Remember my staff, the Iifa Branch? The looks are changed a little, and it's 3D now. (hugs the beloved staff) (done in Cinema 4D)
idlemagic.jpg - Using Black Magic for idle play-about? Hey, why not..?
type-a.gif - Type A's are keen! This is probably No.44.. heh..
spin.gif - Is this even FF-related..? A possible scene on SPiNChat, Kitiara and Race belong to themselves, and Kitiara DOES call me $21, it's not a typo. |^^|
hunter.jpg - Type E. Well... at least it's not No.421 again, eh? |^^| (Drawn in Painter)
trance421.jpg - Traaance. Pretty. (wayquickcolored in PicPub) No.421 in Trance? No way.
421ref.jpg - My personal No.421 reference picture. Er, no, none of my clothing really is transparent, though it'd be cool.
chocwalk.swf - Look, a walking Chocobo! Flash-animated, so I hope you have the Flash-Plugin.. and it has a bit of sound.
blackwaltz1.gif - Last and technically least: Black Waltz No.1.
blackwaltz2.gif - "THIS is Firaga." No, wait.. it's just Black Waltz No.2...
carbuncle.gif - Carbuncle, the sugar-sweet Eidolon.
waltz3.gif - Just a teeny-tiny silhouette of Black Waltz No.3... but I like it..!
blackwaltz3.gif - KWAHAHAHAHA..?
ziddysit.gif - Scribble, Zidane, sitting, sticking out his tongue. I like his face here. |^^|
eikofeathers.gif - Sketches of Eiko, a Chocobo, feathers and.. er.. 2-D, from the Gorillaz.
garnetbodysketch.gif - A quick sketch that doesn't look SO much like Garnet, but I liked how smooth it looks.
diff421b.gif - Different style 421 *again*. Colored rather sloppily in PicPub.
diffr421.gif - Nono, I haven't changed my looks, I just tried a different style on 421. (colored in Painter)
amarant.gif - While Amarant isn't my fav char, he's quite fun to draw. So.. here's a scribble..! (I know, I scribble too much.)
viviyawn.gif - Stretching Vivi! I start to understand how to draw him..! Rejoice? Heh. (colored in Painter)
freyas.gif - Some of my various Freya-scribbles that I liked.
blank-n-mages.gif - Some scribbles of Black Mages (getting.. closer..!) and a Blank. Oh, and a random gal that came out nice.
fo421ru.jpg - A full pic of Fohlen, 421 and Ruben, as they appear in my story. Colored in PicPub.
421-scribs.gif - Quickscribs of 421 and... Fohlen's pants.
mageview.jpg - Something... different. Heh. Painter-doodle I used to test out some of the tools (Oil, Watercolor, Airbrush).
eviltwin.jpg - It's Thorn-ie and Zorn-ie, it is. As featured in the FF9 artbook. Waah, creeps! (colored in Painter'n'PicPub)
barrier.jpg - Hey, 421's actually angry (in case you couldn't tell) and casting a SPELL..! (colored in Painter and PicPub)
psykomog.jpg - I couldn't resist... Psycho Moogle (the green one) belongs to himself. |^^| Drawn in Painter.
more421s.jpg - More.. me's. I tried to get the colors and details a little more right. Colored in Painter.
chaokali.jpg - It's Maliris, and she's a-a-angry! Kali: Her german name. Drawn from memory.. colored in Painter. I like Painter.
iifabran.jpg - Oh, look! I got my very own magic staff, the Iifa Branch..! (points at the SPiNchat.com Zidane, who made it) |^^|
ff9tests.gif - More scribble-tries of Garnet and some of the others. Man, man, man, to get them right is HARD!
gimmecat.jpg - Gimme! Gimme! Gimme that diamond back!! (colored in Picture Publisher)
ole-tofu.jpg - Quina's running off with something. It's probably not edible, but that won't stop him/her. (colored in Painter)
zidiscrb.gif - Some scribble-tries of Zidane, Garnet and Blank. And I like the cat (patpats it).
mrbarril.gif - Ignaz Barril and No.421 (that's me).
vivilook.jpg - Vivi found a strange drawing on the ground... (colored in Painter)
wayvarious.gif - This is pretty random scribbles, but the Zidane in the middle - I still like that one. |^^|
chocride.jpg - Zidane riding a Chocobo (I really need to figure out how to draw his face right).
piniwig-run.jpg - Piniwig fleeing from Alexandria, together with the Burmecian boy who he was supposed to kill (quickly colored).
piniwig.gif - Piniwig was actually my first own Black Mage character. |^^|
freyrain.jpg - Endless Rain in Burmecia. A pic of Freya that I drew in Painter before I noticed she actually only has four fingers.
And now some stories, mainly forming around No.421 and other Black Mages.
Piniwig's story (Chapter 1) - A little more light-hearted than the story of No.421, I guess, as Piniwig doesn't think a lot.
Black Mage No.421 (Chapter 1) - My own little ongoing story.
Black Mage No.421 (Chapter 2) - Supposed To Go This Way
Disclaimer: I'm female. So why's No.421 a "he" in the story? Because I don't want to destroy that certain innocence of FF9 Black Mages. |- -|
The Last One of the Old Kind - Short, a bit sad, but this might be happening in Black Mage Village "Some time later"...
Birth of a Puppet (Chapter 1) - (nods) Another one of those looks into the mind of a newly-awakened Black Mage.
Oh, here's some FF7/8 pics (most of them are older and FULL of flaws, but maybe you'll still like them)...
