+Happy New Year+ by turtletea21 +Happy New Year+ by turtletea21
It's the morning after New Year's Eve~ and Balthier and Fran are often times associated with bars and alcohol. But this is just my horrible excuse to draw fanart of them. I don't think Nono drinks, he probably has coffee or hot chocolate. Happy New Year / Hangover Day! :'D

My New Year's Resolution:
Draw whatever I want, whenever I want, regardless of "what a good artist should or shouldn't do".I hate drawing under the pressure of so many fellow artists' morals and ideals! D':

Beware, I'll probably bleed out a brain-load of fanart.

-------------------------
*Er, if you have no idea what Final Fantasy XII is, then this image might not make any sense to you. Haha

**Fixed something. OCD! Sorry for the inbox thing. xD

I like this! I would think Balthier would be the hungover one. :XD: I wish you would do one the other way around sometime. That would be funny as well. :+fav:

Indeed, she's the reserved and self-disciplined one, so I wouldn't think so. I, however, am very corrupted by Baltheir&Fran fanart/fanfictions. Lol, how horrible!

Thanks, I'm sure when FF characters aren't rescuing a city or a kidnapped person they're light-hearted. Oh snaps, I forgot that they didn't have white mage moogles (in tactics or in FFXII). I'm sure they could become white mages if they tried! o_x;;

I'm sure~ ;D I've only ever played tactics on GBA and DS (so that's what i base all my FF knowledge off of... XD) So I'm so confused, why do they have the other version of moogles? the one with the big red noses? XD

My favorite moogle job is the chocobo knight~ not so much for their abilities, but for the cute factor again~! XD

Course, I'm sure they can do other jobs~ look at Montblanc's brother (i forgot his name) He's a bard~ ;D

Haha I love making moogle fancharacters >w<

Moogles in the earlier games were chubbier had big red noses, but they make them different in every game. [link] .
Square Enix does that with so many things though, right? It's like their signatre. Cid, chocobos, summons (Ifrit and Shiva)...

I want that chocobo knight chocobo-hat! So cute. I would wear it in public. D':<

Final Fantasy Wiki. You could spend days on that site and not get tired. Doesn't beat actually playing the games, but Final Fantasy totally needs it's own encyclopedia. XD

Identity theft?

Twas hours of fun XDD <3

Silly Cid, one game he's a random disembodied voice, in another he's a father and your arch nemesis. @ D@

Of course, it's where FINALFANTASY NERDS UNITE. xD

Thankyou for the fav! I spent New Year's Eve on it, but I got sidetracked a lot, and ended up finishing it at noon-ish the next day. xD

Bahaha, this is adorable. It also reminded me of Balthier carrying Fran after the Bahamut crash. Somehow..in the snow. XD But Fran's feet...they're fun. /pets them/

turtletea21 Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2009
Oh yeah, I noticed this too after I drew it on paper~. I always felt that baltheir was the only one outfit that might be able to withstand the snow, and that Fran's outfit would be the least suitable. Plus she's lost her shoes! Somehow. :XD:

Fran getting piss drunk/hungover would be hilarious; Balthier would be in stitches from amusement. Though now I wish to see how Vaan was like new year's eve. XD

I always found it funny a lot of people often portray Fran as the one being the drunkest. Isn't she the reserved and self-disciplined one? Haha

Aww, very cute. Lovely work!

And good resolution there, a true artist only follows his/her own morals and ideals...or none at all...either way, an artist should be able to draw whatever the bloody hell s/he wants :thumbsup:
