-- FF Tribute -- Amarant Coral by sarrus -- FF Tribute -- Amarant Coral by sarrus
My entry for the current Final Fantasy tribute "Those who fight further" by :icongame-art-hq:

Amarant Coral from Final Fantasy IX, a character I took a while to warm to but is now one of my favourites, especially useful for the Oeilvert part of the game.
I tried loads of new techniques with this one and I'm pretty pleased with it, as usual I wasn't sure what to do for the background but it worked out.

Done in Photoshop CS6 in about 5 hours.

Pretty awesome piece. I don't know much about this guy but I can't imagine he gets the loves he deserves.

Thank you. There's a big fan following of him and Freya paired together. Other than that not a massively popular character... I think.

How can you not like IX?! Each to their own and all that, you should give it another chance :)

I actually played it again recently (before you uploaded this) and while I can see the merit, I just didn't have fun while playing it, but I do see why people like it. 1-8 with the exception of 4 were my favroites with 6,7, and 8 being my top 3. 10 is only kind of good because I like Auron and Jecht, 11-14 were all bad games. But hey, theat's just my opinion. Great artwork nevertheless.

Fair enough. I do have to admit 11 and 14 were garbage, 13 and 13-2 only barely got interesting apart from a few characters.
This is making me want to play through IX again though...

Snow was the only interesting character in 13. Lightning is a female cloud with less badass and less backstory. Vanille and Hope I don't even have to say anything, they "speak" for themselves, if you know what i'm getting at. i don't even remember the other characters. there was a black guy with a chocobo in his hair or something. 13 is pretty much an awful, watered down 7, with less gameplay, less story, and dumb characters.

That's one way of looking at it. Fang was a favourite of mine, Lightning and Hope really did my head in.
I just hope the next in the series will be decent.

the way i see it, the best way to go is the spin off. so far my current favorites has been thearythm, the dissidia games, and the 7 spinoffs (mostly Dirge of Cerberus and Crisis Core) and you can NEVER go wrong with the Tactics games :)

Also, is Fang from 13-2? because i didn't play that one, i didn't like 13 so i thought "what's the point?"

anyway, the big thing I'M personally hoping for is that Square doesn't fuck up Versus 13. Considering we've waited so fucking long, and it's what keeping KH3 from happening :/

Fang's from XIII.
That versus XIII will end up like duke nukem forever :D.
And we all know KH3 is a myth, that series has become so drowned in spin offs, but if it does happen they'll try and put avengers and star wars characters in it...

Indeed, I couldn't wait to start this one.
It's going to be a fantastic tribute, I'm glad my entry will be able to stand up with some of the insanely talented artists involved.
