FF9- Alone by Saimain FF9- Alone by Saimain
Poor Zidane and Kuja... I wasn't going to color this sketch, but I was in the mood to try more colored pencils, so... :)

Last in the sequence of 4 pics based on the ending of Final Fantasy IX. The other three are here:

Zidane must have felt like the loneliest person in the world here :( Your work with colored pencils is incredible, though. :clap:

AWWWWwwww. I think I just got spoiled. :tears: does Kuja die and if so...what happens? Someone tell me cause I can tell you now, I won't be playing FFIX for like YEARS.
Saimain Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2010  Professional General Artist
The game never really says whether or not Kuja actually died...the ending leaves it up to speculation.

It was a strange feeling... losing someone who had inflicted so much pain upon everyone... and yet being able to understand him, knowing that you might have been in his shoes, too...

I couldn't let him die thinking that he was alone.

I just couldn't.

This is absolutely stunning. I love your colored pencil work on this. :3

Poor Kuja.

Very, very nice! I love the topic of this scene, so sad because I realy like Kuja.
The linework and the coloration are gorgeous.
You're very good with colored pencils.

naruxhina16 Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2009
Does Kuja actually die? :(

and why does Zidane disappear for so long after leaving Garnet and the others the rescue him?

Good picture by the way, you should draw more coloured pictures :)
TyrantZodiarche Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2009
You captured the moment perfectly. Love it, well done!
Nights-Song Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2009
This inspires me so much to get better at using colored pencils! Many people just color with computers, but I love that you colored this with pencils. very impressive!!!
sigara-son-kun Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2009  Student Traditional Artist
i like this version even better than the CGed one. the characters look even better and the softness of the colored pencil gives it a very different feel. i liked in the other picture the interaction between the two characters and i like that in this picture as well, even though zidane is pulling himself away he is still thinking about kuja and moving very slowly and forcing himself to leave and kuja still looks very calm and serene in the sunlight....sry love this game far too much and i really like thi s pic lol the detailing is very impressive
akemi-Luo Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2008
I loved how sad the ending to this game was, I'm glad you made it even sadder, somehow! You are good at using pencils ^___^
InnocentFreespirit Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
Really nice coloring job. The thing i like most about this picture is that there are no faces. Even though i love both characters, the fact that their faces are hidden shows a strong emotion.
xChancex Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2008  Hobbyist Writer
So depressing. D: But the picture is also beautiful. ^_^ I haven't played very much of FFIX but the ending seems so sad.
Imperfect-Chaos Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2008
I love how Kuja is painted as a "hero" of the story in the end. XD
