Final Fantasy IX – Quina

in ntopaz •  20 days ago

This is Quina Quen, my favourite character from Final Fantasy 9. They are from a race named Qu, known for their permanently sticking out long tongue and voracious habit of eating anything. The Qu is apparently genderless, though I used to think Quina was a girl due to their name and how they dress, and also because I only watched my friend playing the game, except when the game has a mini game of catching and eating all the frogs. I played that bit and managed to catch all of them, which gave Quina’s weapon, I can’t remember if it was a fork, a spoon, or a knife, but it was a great weapon.

Quina translates as “eat!” in Japanese xD.

They’re such a fun personality, so I was also having fun when I drew this picture. I was practising a more dynamic pose and an unusual angle with this one.

There are other playable characters in the game but I don’t know them and their designs don’t really tickle my brain, so I’m not going to draw them. I might draw chibi Zidane later :D.

Well done! In the past I used to play to Final Fantasy X, great time ^_^

Thank you.

AAAH I love this character so much! When I was playing the game, every time I could use her, I would because she is so much fun ! I found it super adorable that her weapons are giant fork and spoon and that she was always hungry and wanted to eat everything ever XD I was like YES! Finally someone who actually eats what they kill ! XD HAHAHAHAH~

She was great and very fun <3 And I think your drawing really captured her! The perspective and pose are wonderful ! Quina looks like she's jumping with great eagerness to a delicious nom!!!!

Beautiful foreshortening also and the detailing and inking are very lovely <3 I love that you included a frog XD That's her favourite noms :D :D :D

Wonderful piece, @scrawly ! Your FF9 piccars have been such a delight to follow * ___ *

·

Ahhh, so I'm not the only one who thought that Quina is a girl :D!
                           
I included the frog as a last thing, I think the picture wasn't complete without it xD.

Hehehe yes I remember you only played FF10-12. It must be intense playing FF11, that's the mmo one, isn't it. Why you stopped playing FF, ryo-san? ^^
                           
Thank you :).

In the past I was able to enjoy the game, but now I am almost keen on other things so I almost quit the game…😅
Have you been playing the recent Final Fantasy series?

This stuff costs only $5 for the PS 3. I was farther away from buying it.

Buy it only if you have time to play ;).

Ah, the FF development having fun as always; crazy some of the characters (well to a western audience until they read up on their own myths). Anyways, let's quina (eat) and stop fooling around! I mean I like how yah attempted this drawing, very fun yet looking professional. Also, it is an unusual angle, they're trying to kill yah hon. Regardless, good attention to detail, from the kitchenware, to the clothing (and undergarment) and to even the personality of eating. Looks like they will totally screw me over by consuming me, why else to be called that! But nie, good drawing and ready to see all the other FFIX characters; as always.

This character has an ability to eat monsters, truly an embodiment of their name. I find it hilarious when I saw them eating the enemies, and sometimes learning the skill of the consumed ones kekeke.
                           
Thank you.

Kak! They might as well be called Kirby-spawns!

Loving the (like you put it) unusual angle. It looks very sweet and gentle character, lovely fanart.

·

They are indeed a sweet character, even when the main hero confessed that he picked them last, they responded positively by saying leftovers are still yummy.
                           
Thanks Lady Idra ^_^.

I remember this character. Hard not to forget. Her design and humor in the story along with what she could do in battle really has something fun to it. Great job on bringing up nostalgia :D

·

Yes, she's a really fun character! I'm glad that you like her too, I found out that she's one of the most unpopular characters of FF :(.
                           
Thanks adamada.

I always love to see your step by steps @scrawly. Something magical in how new shapes and objects, patterns and tones appear from no-where.

I didn't know Quina Quen before, but pleased to find out all about her now. Probably not a new thought, but have you ever thought of designing a colouring book? ♥︎♥︎⚖️♥︎♥︎

·

No, I've never thought about making a book. I'm not a professional artist so commercialising my art doesn't come naturally to my brain. I think the pressure and limitation that I have to do to make an art venture profitable make it difficult for me to draw, which is why I very rarely take on commission job as well.
                           
Come to think of it, I'm not sure what kind of art project has a good chance of making money? Not many, I believe, that's why most artists stick with Patreon.

I hadn't either @scrawly until I was told that I was going to produce not just one, but THREE books.

Which may or may not happen, but it sure shifted my idea of what a 'book' has to be. A book doesn't have to be commercial or profitable. Although ~ It would be a 'nice' bonus. There are different ways to self-publish where you don't have to outlay anything ~ Except your time.

And a book can be filled with your favourite drawings and paintings. Doesn't have to have a storyline. Doesn't have to have any text either ~ Unless you want to give titles and captions. Leunig comes to mind.

And think of the joy a whole lot of kids ~ And adults would get from colouring in characters like Quina Quen.

Think you're right about not many art projects actually making money. So it's great that Patreon is a way for artists to be supported. People like Amanda Palmer have shown that artists don't have to be shy about asking to be 'rewarded' for all they give ~ In many cases freely. If you haven't seen Amanda's TED talk already: The art of asking

Not wanting to push you into producing a colouring book. We all have to go with what is true for us. Just putting the idea out there, as I feel it could work. ♥︎♥︎⚖️♥︎♥︎

Don't worry Ally, I can tell people off when they start pressuring me into doing something I don't want. However it's not the case at all with your suggestion <3.
