Heartblade Vivi by jameson9101322 Heartblade Vivi by jameson9101322
93 Vivi - Final Fantasy IX

What is a Heartblade? [link]
Other Heartblades: [link]

To not love Vivi is to have no heart. He is the cutest goshdarn thing in the whole golly goshdarn world. He's an old soul with an innocent curiosity, a powerful magician with a humble disposition. He's possibly the reason FFIX was made. I love him.

His blade is mostly covered but that's alright, I wanted a more insecure posture. I had another draft of him holding it in the air like he was gonna ruin someone's day but I scrapped it because it didn't feel like Vivi. instead we have this pose which I think is much better. The comb of his key and the hat at the end of the keychain are supposed to reflect his Trance form. I'm not fully content with this choice but I couldn't think of anything better.

One of the best FF characters from the best FF game.
The Heartblade design is very good as well, rather simple and cute while still holding interest.

He is an awesome character, and I think you explained exactly why with "He's an old soul with an innocent curiosity". Very nice work. The pose captures insecurity and a mysterious sense of power at the same time...which is kindof amazing.

To be honest, Vivi was the main reason I liked FFIX so much.

I still remember how often my friends and I would fight over who got to be him in the game.

Awww it's cute!

Maybe incorporate a card somewhere? He chose a card as his prize for the tournament thing mid-game. I forget the name of the city where it was held. :P

That was Lindblum wasn't it? And I'd forgotten all about that! I thought of maybe making it a kupo nut because he was so pleased by the one he found there but it was such a minor part of the story I reconsidered

Yes, I think so.

Heck, you could also throw in a reference to Quina since Vivi and Quina got "married" in the dwarf city. ^^;

that was hilarious. I was already in love but the humor in that scene and how they solved that particular problem with both romance and comedy cemented 9 as my favorite Final Fantasy. I'll always remember the delight when Quina turned and said "I so happy"... lol...

I think Quina and Vivi were my favs.

A lot of people didn't like 9, but I did. It was the second FF game I actually BEAT (7 being the first).

The first one I beat by myself was X. I had to watch people finish the others becuase I kept getting stuck... and I never even actually played 9 for myself, I watched it on Youtube. I can only assume the people who didn't like it were poo pooing the art style after getting used to their tall FF8 bishounen... there is no other reason not to like it, it's my favorite one wiht XII as a close second (Balthier is awesome but the dungeons are so freakin long)

Oh, well you're fast approaching 100 and that's still pretty cool!
Given any thought to actually getting the whole thing written out? Or is that sort of out of the question given that it's an ever-expanding thing? XD

Either way they're still awesome. ^^
