final fantasy iv is clear! here’s a shot of my party right before the final boss, since the new game+ file immediately starts with cecil back at level 10.
I somehow managed to get the rainbow pudding drop in the tower of zot, so I was a big wimp and finished the namingway questline to get the safe travel augment before I went into the last dungeon.
I don’t want to get too spoilery, but I thought iv was a nice combination of ii (characters [kain <—> leon in particular], rotating party members) and iii (crystals, mysterious final boss). I felt the cecil/rosa/kain & all iterations thereof very strongly…
cecil’s development and the focus on forgiveness/redemption was really refreshing - instead of the more jrpg-typical “young man seeks answers to questions and learns about the world” it was cecil, a seasoned soldier, re-experiencing the world and trying to become worthy of forgiveness.
I’m going to commit to finishing radiant historia before moving on to ff v, but I would also really like the play the after years at some point.
Ookay. easily 5 hours later and here she is! I wanted to try my hand at what another artist did with the other splash pages, and Venus is my bae, so I started with her. This was actually really fun to draw! I think Mako is next. :)
