VIVIsteemCreated with Sketch.

in drawing •  11 days ago

Vivi is a black mage from Final Fantasy IX, and he’s the youngest character in the game. In the beginning of the game, he’s doubting himself a lot especially about his self-worth, as he’s introverted and clumsy and afraid to use his abilities. I think a lot of people can relate pretty well with these feelings, and that’s probably why he’s a very popular character in Final Fantasy games series.

Thank you <3 <3 <3.

I dare to say that this one is the most colorful one from you that I've seen so far :) I think that most of us can relate with his feelings. But I guess that when you're longer in the game he changes his attitude as you said 'at the beginning of the game'. I'm very similar (although I don't look as cute as he does :D ), when I meet someone for the first time it is difficult for me to be myself. When I get to know them, there is nothing to stop me from annoying them with my life stories, lol :D

Thank you for sharing! This one is a lot of fun :)

Have a great week!

·

Hehehe, yeah as you said, his journey is pretty relatable to a lot of us. I think few people are gifted with the social abilities that we need to have to be proper humans. Most of us take a long time to level up our socialisation and empathy skill, maybe even now XD.
                               
He's only 6 months old in age, because he's not human. I bet you're cute as a button when you're 6 months old :).

Thank you c-squared.

You’ve drawn him very well, Scrawly! The colors and the details look like they belong on the cover art or such for the game itself. Nice work! :)

And I hope you feel better soon.

Thank you artzone :).

I played this game so long ago, and now I am so glad to see this cute character again, it brought me back many years ago, in the merry and carefree years of my life. Vivi is a very cool character, I remember about Tantalus gang, poor Vivi was looking for the answer to the question - who is he !? and how was he born !?

Oh, how it was a long time in my life. Excellent drawing, a wonderful choice of character, Mysterious baby magician turned out very cool in your drawing. <3

·

Are you saying you're no longer merry and carefree? No wonder you called yourself sadheaven. Though with your ability of making music, I don't think you should ever feel sad. Well sometimes is okay I guess, but it shouldn't be often XD.
                             
And thank you for such a lovely comment <3.

Over time, my fun fades away, I am too sentimental, and I take a lot of things very close to my heart. I became sad because the world has changed, before, everyone was kinder, everyone lived together. And now many have become angry and are looking for profit for themselves, war is going on everywhere, every day hundreds of people die, someone loses loved ones, someone stays on the street after losing their homes. It makes me sad, I absorb this negative like a sponge and try to process it into a positive and pour it out, to make the world better and kinder. <3

·

I feel you. But as much sad things are happening right now, and had happened always over the course of history, there's also good stories. Stories that none ever talk about. Mainstream media and social networks are a cluster of negativity and fear mostly. Echo chambers of despair. Not in ts entirety, but in great proportion. But think that for every sad story, out there there's at least one that is filled with compassion, reason and joy. Sadly most of the world is driven by god money, but there is always people who see through the illusion of money, economic, social and political systems, which are not inherently bad, but had turned out poisoned as the greedy ignorant humans that stir them. So cheer up and shine! We're not alone. Hugs!

Ooohh!!! If you can absorb all the bad stuff and turn them into something positive, that is awesome indeed!
                         
But take care of yourself too, someone who can do this negative reversal should be maintained to be healthy always :D.

I learned to fight it when I'm sad I write sad music, when I have fun I write good music, when I'm angry, I write hard music. Hehe :D

That looks like quite a magical wand emanating all those violet flames. Having a wand like that would not just raise the self-esteem of someone who doubts their unique abilities but let them see why they needed to have all those doubts in the first place. And once the doubts turn into fairy floss, the wielder of the wand will have the ability to help others see more of their total creative self.

Hope you can borrow that magic wand @scrawly ~ And command the violet flames to ward off that summer cold too. Be well soon.

·

I think you have guessed his character progression pretty well with that summary, Ally. It is quite amazing that you can do that.
                             
And thank you, I hope the magic wand works and dispels my cold ^_^.

I love that little wizard char from FF hehe

·

Hahaha I understand. He's one charming little fella :).
                             
Thank you!

i thought ff9 was under rated. Up there with ff7 IMO

·

It's actually the highest rated FF XD.
                           
FF7 is defo awesome though :).

·
·

lol didn't know that. must have been my circle of friends then, when the game came out. they didn't dig it as much as I did.

Oh yes! The Black Mage! He is definitely iconic from the Final Fantasy series and one can really see why easily.... From the first time I saw Vivi and how his shyness is palpable due to him always hiding his face, I was like, yes, this me.

Like you say, most of us would probably be able to relate to being introverted, clumsy, and a little afraid to use our abilities in fear that we might ruin things. That personality screams self-doubt so vividly and it is through Vivi's journeys that we find a lot of our own selves translated in the games :)

I think you coloured him very well, scrawls ! The style is very reminiscent of game illustrations with simple primary colours but buoyant tonality. Love the subtle lighting effect on the magic rays, in particular <3 And the faint glows of his eyes is nicely done, too :D

I really like your Final Fantasy piccars XD They are making me feel like going back to play the games again :D :D :D

And I hope you will defeat your cold soon, too ! HP/MP RECHARGED!!!

plays ff7 battle victory theme song for you

·

Wow, you noticed the glowing eyes. Super eyes you've got, spider! XD
                               
And yeah, that part of his personality is so relatable to a lot of gamers. Maybe because gamers tend to be escapists of the harsh real world hehehe XD.          
                               
Thank you, I'm always happy to know that you like my arts. I know that you have said it a lot, but as an artist, we never can get enough compliments lol.

This is beautiful. Thought the head was part of the background, but seems they are different colours. Nice work.

That is very attentive of you. I am honoured that you pay such attention to details to my art, thank you fredkese :).

I love that little guy! He's so adorable! :-)
Is he a playable character in FF IX? Now I'm even more curious...

·

He's definitely playable. I feel that you should buy the game because it's cheap, isn't it? I think you might like him, he's quite popular :).

·
·

Yes, I am thinking about that.

I'm starting to recognize these characters lately as my kids plays a lot of anime styled computer combat games.

·

You should join them, pirate lady :D.
                           
These games are fun ^_^!!!

A classic!

·

Thank you :D.

I love Final Fantasy also Vivi... Lovely picture!!!

·

Whohoo, another FF fan :D.
                           
Thank you Joe.

Very cool little character and great rendering, I haven't played a lot of FF but it's an incredible game no less.

·

It is a great game series. I like that they keep changing the gameplay... keep everything fresh! But also it makes them take forever to make a new one >_>.
                           
Thanks Jeremy :).

Hope Vivi will help you defeat the flu ! 😉

I think he's helping, I'm feeling better. At least I can sleep without interruption now ^_^.
