This is my second submission to the Artist Training Grounds’ week 14 theme: Pirates vs Ninja.
Well, other people have done FF6 for themes in the past and as a big fan of it (it’s my favourite FF and ranks among my top 5 favourites for RPGs in general), it was kind of shameful that I hadn’t at least done something for a crossover. Anyway, this theme presented an opportunity, so this is a 1 hour sketch where I ponified Shadow the ninja and FiM styled Interceptor (his dog for those who don’t know).
I never realized how much gold trimming and random flowing cloth thingies Shadow had until I took a good hard look at the Amano art for this crossover. I can’t believe he stayed hidden at all in the game. Anyway, I simplified it a lot to try to keep it in FiM style, so no crazy texturing. It was also kind of tough to get an intimidating expression on Interceptor’s face without making him look like an oddly shaped colt.
