FFVI - Not Your Slave by 47ness FFVI - Not Your Slave by 47ness
O hai, so I finished a new print for :iconanimeexpo: :dummy:
Original starting sketch: TerraTritoch wippy by 47ness

So I had a headcanon that when the esper Tritoch (Valigarmanda in the original) reacts to Terra at the beginning of the game it actually appears to her in astral projection form and for a brief moment she awakens to her true badass self. <3

And yeah that's her incinerating her own slave crown. Because she should have. :XD:

wow, amazing! Terra and Tritoch! Fantastic fanart!
Btw, I have a tumblr dedicated to FFVI: finalfantasyvi.tumblr.com. If you agree, I would like to post your fanart there, with all credits and links to your page here. Would you be okay with that? If not, I fully understand too :)

Thank you!
And I'd be honored...!

If it makes it easier, here's my original tumblr post of the piece:

Always glad to find other VI fans. :)

I'm so glad you're ok with that. Thank you for your reply :-) 

Yes, I would usually reblog, to keep the source (I don't repost ever!), but I would like to do something a little bit different, if you agree. 
When there is a scene from the game that is being portrayed (or very close to a scene), I use to put it with the fanart. People tend to love it when I do. 
And I believe your fanart would be great with this screenshot I took from the game:

Is wonderful see that her beauty is nicely complemented by the nultitude of details, as her clothes pattern colors or the sword... the light effects are great, and the dragon is fascinating, including with this hemlet, reminds me the helmets used by the Roman empire soldiers ;)

47ness Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2014
Yeah, it's a classical fantasy look (though I mostly wanted to pay homage to one of my earliest favorite games) ^^

It's a strange design all right! The dragon itself is more like a winged serpent in the style of Quetzalcoatl (something that comes back in Final Fantasy VIII), so I wonder if that's what the helmet was also taking its cues from.

Badass indeed!

This is such a neat pic, I love the strong lighting and how it frames Terra so well. The clean colors work so well with the strength of the underlying sketch.

Glad you noticed; one of my best anatomy teachers Nathan Fowkes is big on the idea of "light narrative" where you accentuate the lit areas to create the ideal flow across the canvas. I'm trying my best to follow his example.

I suddenly have this image in my head of either Kefka or Emperor Gestahl on their knees (Gestahl more so than Kefka) at Terra's mercy.

Brilliant technique + Concept + Presentation and the burning slave crown really goes with the title.

Hah! It'd be an interesting reversal, considering how Gestahl first met her.

Thanks ~ it's just one of those interpretations of events I'd like to think happened.

Ooh I like this headcanon of inner Terra setting outer Terra free -- it'd be awesome to see a moment like this depicted in the game. This piece is gorgeous! Love the warm metals, and the fabric and materials look so rich and silky. Beauuuutiful *__*

Yeah I noticed there was a resurgence of VI fanart in recent years and one of the most popular subject matters was Terra piloting her magitek armor and looking badass. Now, I <3 me some steampunk fantasy mech suits, but it always feels like they're missing the fact that she was deprived of agency and wasn't really being badass at all. ^^;

And much like how Vargas' back-story begged to be explored I always felt like there was more to Tritoch than what we got (esp. considering its central role during the opening all the way to the 1/3 mark of the game.) We can only imagine huh??

Hehe, of course! Terra and all of FFVI offers fun opportunities to go wild with the design. :D I have some reeeeally old art of the game from when I first started drawing; nothing worth posting here since I was a little kid.

I think you should take another shot at it sometime. :)

Awww yeaa looks like she's finally taken matters to her own *burning* hands >:3
dang great work on those details! The patterns on her slick red suit, the shininess of her hair, and the scales of the creature or waaay cool *__* the bits of her burnt slave crown floating around are a nice touch.

I have no idea what this is but it looks pretty epic :D
Nice work the the crown burning/breaking - my eyes went on a little adventure looking at that


one thing though, she looks slightly bored, is that part of the character? or is she thinking about something like past memories to do with that crown and they aren't nice memories

47ness Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2014
Thanks! :D It's Final Fantasy 6. An oldie from 1994, but still one of my favs.
I spend a good chunk of time on the crown, so glad you like~!

Yes, it's part of Terra's character. The first few minutes of the game establish she was turned into a magic-wielding killer against her will and reawakens as an amnesiac. You pretty much called it.
