Final Fantasy Summons by xericho Final Fantasy Summons by xericho
If given the chance to design the summons of the next Final Fantasy game, this is what I came up with. if this gets more than 10,000 views like my Urban Justice piece, I'll do another one with the other summons :D

before reading on, please check out my video project!

Phoenix - I watched Batman Beyond as a kid and was inspired by how Blight was drawn, the over all concept of flames covering a skeleton came from that one. very happy with the colors a I use for this one.


Ramuh - I love Matthew McConaughey, my Ramuh is based on him from the Reign of Fire movie, I just wanted to deviate from the usual old man wizard stereotype hence giving him an ubermensch look. I have no idea why I did not give him legs though, I just think it looks cool.


Leviathan - more or less stuck to the original. Made him a little more fish-like by giving him various traits from the moray eel, blue whale and swordfish.

Odin - Had so much fun with this one. very much Todd McFarlane's Spawn inspired. I know he's suppose to be a Norse God, but gave him a trait Greek God usually have; less clothing. I seriously wanted him not to have a crotch guard but decided otherwise.

Bahamut - just stuck to the formula of a classic western dragon. why fix something that's not broken. basically just an amalgam of all the bahamuts in the Final Fantasy series.

Siren - Did't really want to include her here but there was only 1 female in this piece, Shiva, so I decided to put another female in. basically a more adult version of the one in FF VIII.

Ifrit - for those who know me, Akira Toriyama has always been a big inspiration in my art. hence Ifrit is a little Goku-ish in this one. I went with a more humanoid one but had Beast from Disney's Beauty and Beast in mind while I did this too.

Alexander - Did not really do so much details on him, just a more or less generic robot design of mine.

Shiva - If it is any indication, I love Marvel comics, more or less I'm trying to emulate art from their artists. Shiva is more or less inspired by Iceman of the X-Men with the whole body made of ice look. I would have done a more detailed Shiva but I don't think it would have fit in the whole piece.
