So how do you like your Faris?

Artwork design or in-game design?
>>
>>2889879
In-game. I've never actually liked the vast majority of official artwork for Final Fantasy.
>>
>>2889901
I prefer artwork because blond hair makes more sense with her story.
>>
>>2889879
Since I see her sprite in game, then her in game one. It's really jarring in most remakes to see her Amano portrait. Same goes with FF6 as well. I wish there was a hack to remove them.

I like both. The purple hair looks cool, and I love every piece of art Amano has made for FF.

Yes, even the one you're thinking about.

Probably the people that look like cabbage

Namely Kefka, Rydia, and Edge

In game by far

Amano's FFV designed looked all kinds of wrong.
>>
>>2889879
I don't think there's an Amano version of any character I prefer to their in-game look.
>>
>>2890129

Pick one. I adore the dude's art.
>>
>>2889901
Same here. Yoshitaka Amano is a talentless hack.

Isn't there a patch that removes FF6 portraits? I think i've seen one in the utilities section at the romhacking website.
>>
>>2889879

I never played this but obviously the blonde one is better. She looks interesting, whereas the other is Anime Nobody #9383784.

Old Final Fantasy games really did a terrible job at keeping this stuff consistent though. It's bizarre that anybody would work so hard as to produce a big game like that, only to mess up such a basic, obvious thing as making the characters look like themselves. Just, like, have the sprite guy look at the Amano images once. Or write down a few basic points for Amano to match his stuff up to. "She is blonde, oh great portrait master Amano-sama." There crisis averted. Is it really that hard. :(
>>
>>2890924

Id rather one for 5. At least in six they KIND of look like the sprites.

I don't know what the fuck is going on in 5 though. Color me crazy but I don't think Butz is the type who wears fancy silks and make up and Faris is quite clearly not blond

Every character drawn by Amano has the same androgynous face.
>>
>>2891240
And Faris is an androgynous pirate.
>>
>>2891093
>I never played this but obviously the blonde one is better. She looks interesting, whereas the other is Anime Nobody #9383784.
>implying the bonde one also doesn't look like an Anime Nobody, just in a variation of the Tatsunoko style
>>
My first exposure to FFV was the GBA version with those terrible portraits, so I didn't doubt for a second Faris was a girl.

But I replayed a bit of the PS1 version today, and I can see how without portraits, how Faris could be perceived to be a man. Infact, I like that much better than her being a obvious female.
>>
>>2889879
Where's the right one from? I'd actually replace all the portaits in game in that style if someone made one for each character.

Amano outfit with purple hair
>>
>>2889879
The only Final Fantasy game where Amano's designs look better than the in-game designs are for FFVI. Amano in V is literally the most out of place.

In-game, but I've always liked Amano more for his monster designs than his human characters anyways.
>>
>>2889879
The in game design looks pretty good. Artwork design just makes her look like Cecil with a ponytail, and that' weird.
>>
>>2891093
That's your opinion, imo the purple haired girls looks VASTLY better and more interesting and I wouldn't be surprised if you were all alone in your ridiculous opinion. Don't do shitposting, is that really hard.

If you never played it you can kindly shut up because that blond mess is supposed to represent THIS

Amano is a very talented artists, that's not really up for debate but he was a horrible choice for this game because not only do the characters not even look close to what the game sprites do it's just, well five is a silly game and there's just no humor or anything to his designs. He works better on the more serious titles
>>
>>2894016
How do we call Amano the terrible designer? Weren't the sprites made after his art? If so, you should be shitting on the spriting team for not matching what he drew.
>>
>>2894024

You can't always put what he draws into the game though.

Look at how over designed his shit is. He knows what systems he's designing for and Square had to have told him what they wanted before. Im not really sure what the order for these things is but I doubt the sprites where pulled out of someone's ass design wise.

No matter how you shake it he's the one not playing with the rest of the team.

and like I said there's also the issue of tone, and setting which he does not mesh with at all.
>>
Amano draws sort of cool landscapes and creatures and shit, but his character designs all look like weird transvestites covered in nondescript ribbons and baubles
>>

isn't that all anime in general?

No.

there's a mode for the IOS port on steam that takes the portraits out and another that lets you turn pngs into the files to make new ones

just an FYI

But that still doesn't change the fact that it's a mobile port and the touch interface remains. I was almost tempted to play VI modded so the shitty filter is off till I remembered that.
>>
I hate how Bartz is a fuccboi with an equally gay voice in Dissidia because of Amano. It does not fit him at all.
>>
>>2889879
Artwork, there she at least sort of looks like a girl pretending to be a dude

I like artwork Lenna more too, fight me
>>
>>2889879

In-game looks really weird considering she was able to pass off being a male pretty much all her life, which the artwork conveys easier.

Amano's artwork is always amazing

>tfw we will never get a modern FF-game where everything looks Amano like the movie Angel's egg
>>
>>2895227

I've sometimes thought Amano's artwork was more amazing than the Final Fantasy game it ended up in.
>>
>>2895234
Same goes for Nobuo's music. I wish they had worked on something else together once, because they are honestly great not only as vidya art/music, but art/music in general.
>>
>>2889879
Blonde one looks like a ships captain. The pink hair one doesn't look like anything.
>>
I love Amano's art and I love Angel's Egg but it really doesn't work for portraits
>>
>>2895208
Right??
Fuggin'....stupid.

>>
>>2895234
But without Final Fantasy, Amano would just be another run-of-the-mill artist.
>>
>>2900827
Well he was already relatively well known as he had his own manga.
