Final Fantasy VIII by Matelandia Final Fantasy VIII by Matelandia
Well, The Squall vs. Cloud is by far my most commented piece so far, unfortunally most of the coments aren't about the drawing but from Cloud's fans bitching about the inevitable end of the fight hahaha (Now, there's gonna be a hundred more coments).
Anyway, I'm just kidding of course, character preferences aside, I'm a huge fan of Final Fantasy VIII and always wanted to make a big piece with all the characters but never had the patience.. well, this one took a lot but there it is..

Hope you all like it..

All Photoshop, about two weeks on the breaks from work...

Here's the link for high res.

For the worlds in installments VII, VIII, or XV, how modern is too modern for a fantasy world?

Like, let's say you want to write a fantasy (or science-fantasy) novel, and you've considered using modern elements featured in VIII for a fantasy world. Usually when people write fantasy stories like this, it often takes place in a European land/world that either uses a mythic past or a steampunk setting, or if it's science-fantasy, it sometimes looks like a futuristic version of either Ancient Rome or Ancient Greece. So far, after looking up a number of worlds featured in fantasy novels, I haven't found any that uses modern world elements.

PS If I have to bring up a different example of a fantasy world with modern technology, there was a film adaptation of "Titus Andronicus" that came out back in 1999, where it takes place in Rome but takes place in a modern era, as if the Roman Empire was able to last that long.

I personally think that VIII is still the best classic FF game. Everyone says it's VII but the battles and epic travels. I dunno, I really like the part in disc 2 when you are gonna have Irving take out Edea. It gets really exciting. The worst part of all of these games and the KH series, is beating them. I always feel depressed that the story comes to an end D':

Anyway, nice job :D

8 was always my Fav...this looks friggin great...nice to see another artist that is pro-photoshop...its what I use for all my coloring and design needs as well...a lotta folks tell me to use adobe illustrator, but I don't think it can do as good a job or navigates as well as Adobe Photoshop.
