FFIV: This Really Happens

   0
*spoilers for Final Fantasy IV*

This is a comic dramatization of a real conversation in Final Fantasy IV: No names have been changed, because no one is innocent (especially not Kain).



It wasn't like I was surprised when Rosa did the whole "Don't feel bad Kain, we know you were possessed by evil!" thing after Kain rejoins the party, but the fact that Kain outright admits that his desire to kidnap Rosa was unrelated to his possession just floored me. I like to imagine Rosa and Cecil both getting identical "WTF?" expressions on their faces and backing away slowly, an unspoken refrain of "let's all NEVER mention this again" hanging palpably in the air. Talk about your awkward party dynamics.

I guess that's why Kain spends 99% of the battles off-screen-- he just can't look them in the eye.

The above little comic strip was a test of my ability to create clean lineart in Illustrator; I kind of failed, but I learned how to do it better for next time, so overall it was a good exercise. I was going to color it, but mistakes at the lineart stage made that very difficult to do properly, so I decided to just post it for you guys and do a better job next time. The FFIV cast has cool costumes and I'd like to do them better justice than the kind of over-simplified versions here.

I think I like doing these "within the game" sorts of comics-- what do you think?

Links to all things Me:

My Personal Blog
Because I occasionally think about things other than games (I know-- for shame!)
Currently doing a 20-year history of Nine Inch Nails, because apparently I don't have enough projects that are HUGE TIME-SUCKING MONSTERS. Anyway, I try to keep anything that's videogames-related on Gaming Goddess, but there's a little bit of inevitable crossover.

My graphic novel, Sterling
There is some videogame-related stuff in Sterling, particularly Final Fantasy, but that's not really the focus. Meant for adults, so don't say I didn't warn you:).

My Twitter I'm very conscious of twitter-spamming, so I try to tweet only when I update one of my blogs or comics. Some people can get away with constantly tweeting charming little witticisms and it's neat, but I think if you have any interest in my twitter at all, it should be useful, never a nuisance.

About the name Gaming Goddess: No, I do not have delusions of grandeur! At least, not about games!
The origin of GG is this: My boyfriend's Mom is REALLY good at Space Invaders and games like that, leading me to dub her the "8-bit Goddess". We decided that 8-bit Goddess would be a really good name for the gaming blog that I wanted to start, except it would be false advertising since I personally suck at 8-bit games. So I changed it to the more general Gaming Goddess-- so I'm good at some type of games, I just don't have to specify which ones:).

Of course, if my boyfriend's awesome mom wants to start a blog, she can be the 8-bit Goddess, and I will bow to her in humble submission.

I have decided to change this section to only what is in my consoles AT THE MOMENT as opposed to every game I'm technically in the middle of. Accuracy FTW.

PS2: Odin Sphere
PSOne: Azure Dreams, Parasite Eve, Tomb Raider

Latest Fan Art:

Yeah, something new! Rydia's cool, people complain about the graphics in the new DS version of FFIV but I love the way the characters look...well, except for Rosa. The girl could use pants.

About Me:
I'm a starving artist/freelance writer/comic book artist/insert other vocation that makes very little money. If you're on Destructoid, chances are I am older than you. That kind of pisses me off.

Anyway, I'm working on some projects that I think might be of interest to some Dtoid readers, but I think I'll keep most of that stuff in my profile section, so the Cblogs won't be taken up with self-promotional posts from me. I'll add the info to my profile when I start my new comic and things like that.
