lunatic pandora by beandog lunatic pandora by beandog
full view is only a click away.

i already went nuts on the tavern typing about this crizapp but i'll drop some thoughts on it.

Basically, ffviii should have it's own movie, not vii. Loved vii, but their story died immediately after the game. viii has a continuation point which i believe is often overlooked. That being that gf's cause memory loss. grand right? well what if that's phase one? what if they take over the host and control them!? now we got a movie going here! seed goes ballistic, lunatic pandora is resummoned, sorceress revivals, time compression, COMPLETE PANDEMONIUM. not some bogus BOGUS disease that suddenly gets cured when cloud defeats sephiroth (who also manages to appear randomly) I dunno, poor script writing. With my viii movie pitch we have a REAL dilemma. Can squall and the others snap out of it? The towns are locked out from time compression. People have no where to run. Alliances of the free people are created, but not before monsters start raining on the earth from the moon. Oh man, i get worked up when talking about this so i'll just shut it.

I got carried away with this. It was for a contest. we'll see if they take it. It doesn't quite pertain to the boundaries. With finals and junk, not sure i'll get another, safer, crack at the contest. WHATEV! hehe.

gah!

h and f pencils. characters to square enix. That's supposed to be ifrit. I drew him a bit crunk last night and finished him this morning... he doesn't look like the game version at all, BUT IT'S MY OWN VERSION, mother crimper. So like it or shut it up.

j/c, drop down a crit if anything is buggin you.

I aaaaaalways said FFVIII deserves a movie, no story compares to it, and so much to expand on

Wow. That's a Squall batshit-ified.

I think I'll just edge away slowly along the wall and hope he doesn't see me.

You've made me feel very, very regretful about Advent Children, and that is an achievement. Parasitic GF has to be one of the most brilliant sequel ideas there ever were. This could result in so much breath-taking havoc it could keep people glued to their seats for the full duration of an uncut Lord of the Rings movie.

Also, a superb sketch. Not sure if it's more that or the idea itself, but I find I could easily study the detail for minutes. :)

That's some sick work man. An excellent interpretation of the characters.

I agree wholeheartedly that VIII should get more love and I would especially enjoy getting a movie. Though what I would like to see in a movie differs quite a bit. I'm a huge Laguna fan. My ideal would be a revelation of how he ousted Adel and became the President of Esthar.

VIII definitely has my favorite characters from any Final Fantasy. I just never liked the story all that much. *Shrug.*

Anyway, great work!

dude, ffvii so OWNS ffviii. ffviii's characters are the most 2d, stereotypical anime/manga characters ever. also, the gameplay kinda sucked; squall was in level 99 when all other characters were in 41...and the towns were locked. wtf?? i could not win. i just gave up on it.

okay, having gotten that out of the way, i love this drawing. your ifrit owns, and i love squall's expression. it would have been nice if you gave rinoa an expression too...but she was pretty dumb in the game anyway. (i could not resist typing that.) also, it's good to see pencil drawings! :D

what an entertaining comment! i like your gutsy response. It's good to stand up for your fav of the series. Everyone's got their own opinion for sure.

I actually believe ffviii's characters had more dimensions than ffvii. For example, while cloud was a sweet ex-soldier with mako poisoning and a faltering memory, that's hard to relate to. playable for sure and entertaining, but hard to relate to. Which is why i guess i think squall is a more dynamic lead character. He has real life problems that alot of people share, especially when forced into an unwanted leadership position. his inner dialog allowed his character to expand in ways no other ff game has to offer.

And as for anime characters, a talking cat/lion creature and a stuffed robotic animal is a bit saturated in the anime nonsense. I also thought ffviii was much harder than vii. Some people don't like that and i certainly can understand. I personally liked how you could miss stuff and not go back and get it.

Anyways, it's all good in the hood. Your comments and opinions are greatly appreciated.

First of all, sincerely fantastic art. I hardly ever see someone with such skill at pencils - people these days, with their tablets and 'undo' buttons make me sick.

Secondly, I'm resisting a very strong urge to debate you plot. Sufficed to say, yea, GFs; that's where the future of the story lies. And I really don't have anything else to say to it.

agreed. it was simply matter of fact in the game. Thanks for the comments. I based ifrit off the standard ffviii official game art version, though it looks nothing like.

I like VII better than VIII, but it's MY SECOND FAV and it was my first fav before I played VII!! Damn I love this game so much! THEY SHOULD TOTALLY MAKE IT A MOVIE!!! I've been saying it for awhile and I'm glad other people got the same idea!!!

That's an interesting script idea!! :giggle: It's a scary possibility too, with Squall and Griever and Rinoa and you know, how some people interpret Rinoa becoming Ultimecia and Squall becoming Griever as her knight because of that foreshadowing about even if the world turned against her, him being her knight....it's so sad DAMN I LOVE THAT STORY. :cries: FFVIII is teh pwn. :love:

interesting idea in your description.. i am a fan of 7, 8, 10, 10-2 and 12.. [have yet to finish 9] and i dunno.. i can see what you mean about it being left wide open for a movie, and you're right. each final fantasy game has that opening, i suppose.. and i absolutely love this picture, its really creative and well thought out. good work.

but i have to say that i loved ff7's ending and the movie was brilliant.. ^^; sowwy.. lol

but yeah definately an interesting idea you have there. :thumbsup:

oh i know what you mean [and i wasnt offended, dont worry] and it does get alot of love, hence why most of my ff fan art is ff8 or ff10 stuff... and the fact that i really cant get into the swing of drawing spikey hair lately.. or ever. lol

but yeah i would have to say ff8 is probably at the top of my list of the favourites on the final fantasy series.. but the story of ff7 makes me get teary every damn time lol.. its hard to compare when its like that..

but yeah dont feel bad, i wasnt havin a go ;) just showing my point of view. its all good.
keep up the awesome work. :thumbsup:
