One of the things that make video games really great is that there is always someone who wants to express their love and passion for the game, or franchise, or even just the characters in the game, in some way that others will appreciate. One of the best, and most fun, things that happen through that passion is fan art. Artists of all styles and skill levels will pen their own versions of the character, recreate beautiful moments, or just do fun shots that’ll make them (and hopefully others) smile. For the fans of the Final Fantasy franchise, fan art is in abundance.
It’s not surprising of course, as the legendary RPG series has had numerous titles both main and spinoffs. With each title, setting, and set of characters, the desire to make new and exciting fan art grows, as does the desire to show it off to others. For example, take the feature image above of Noctis and Lunafreya from Final Fantasy XV, which was made by Sakimi Chan. This is a beautiful piece featuring the two fan-loved characters.
But also, the fun of fan art is taking characters you know and putting them in fun or unique settings. For example, how about taking the classic Final Fantasy VII team…and making them Pokemon Trainers?
Unique right? And that’s just the beginning of what fans have shown off from the franchise fans. Some fans have recreated classic Final Fantasy moments but have done it in different styles. Some actually took those moments and did them in classic Final Fantasy logo style to really tie it to the history of the series.
This is the true beauty of fan art, nothing is out of reach or range. Whether you just want to have fun, or make the characters you love, it’s your art, so draw what makes you happy…then show it off to others!
