Emperor Gestahl and General Leo by ObstinateMelon Emperor Gestahl and General Leo by ObstinateMelon
Aww shite, I'm missing my 1 million page views. I kind of want to finish the FF6 stuff before I draw anything for that.

But anyway, Merry Crustmas! On to the secondary characters, starting with the least secondary of them all. Dr. Gero and Android 16. Or whatever they're called.

Same! Did you know that there is a mod for the SNES version that exchanges Shadow with Leo when Leo was supposed to die?

Yes I have, it was extremely well written and thought out. So happy to find someone else who has played it outside of my twin brother.

Yeah i love how the mod author did not just shoehorn Leo in. I loved that he was put into the story at a point where it would make the most sense!

Leo looks like he's about to cut someone in two with that massive sword, probably Kefka. I love your Gestahl, and it's a great detail that he's showing off that floating magicite. Will you draw Maduin and Madeline in your style, pretty pleaaaase? They're Terra's parents, they're very important :nod:

Do you know that Leo is black on concept art? ^__^
That makes him first black character in FF ^__^

Aw dangit, Leo's still fugs.

Why is Gestahl so short?

ObstinateMelon Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2015
Fugs?!

Because Gestahl is a weird old walrus man. Or the better question is why is Leo so tall. Setzer was the tallest character I drew and Leo's much taller than that (I mean, not canonically, just saying it's the way I drew it).

Yeah, fugs. I know that, in his Amano art and his menu portrait, he ain't exactly a bishounen, but since you're making pictures based on the sprites rather than any of the artwork, you could have taken some liberties. I really want to see a picture of General Leo where he looks more like the "valiant and honorable man on the wrong side of the conflict" that he is, rather than some common thug with nice clothes.

:laughing: Wat. It is based off his sprite. I didn't draw a black man with yellow lips. He has a mohawk and no eyebrows, a number of Japanese characters look like that. In fact the joke about him looking like a DBZ character; wasn't Android 16 very noble and gentle and exactly what you just said??

I don't recall anyone's sprites having eyebrows though. Or remotely detailed faces at all, for that matter.

Amarant coral wasn't count but he uses a Afro hair and he looks badass :).

Okay, I take back what I said about Strago.  Leo is the post apocalyptic wasteland raider here.  For being the strongest and noblest warrior without magic in the Empire, he sure got treated like a bitch by everyone around him.  Even despite his Shock skill.  *Fwink! KABOOM!*  How do you even do that without magic?!

And Emperor Gestahl?  Second greatest manipulative A-Hole in the game, and got an even more pathetic death than Leo.  As a result, his legacy is that he had chocobo feed named after him.  "Gestahl Brand Greens!  You'll feel like you can conquer the world!"

lol haha I do see the resemblance to Dr. Gero and the Android xD. Oh man seeing Gestahl's face again reminds me of when Kefka moved those statues to shoot the lightning bolts "RUN RUN... OR YOU'LL BE WELL DONE!"...  can't help but kinda laugh at that part.

Is that magicite that Gestahl is holding. And I just now noticed that the background is the default menu screen.

General Leo Shock Da Boom.

I'm not the only one who thought Gestahl's mugshot always looked really weird, right? And that Leo's hair looked really weird on his sprite and mugshot? They look good here, but still..

I kept thinking Gestahl had bunny ears or something. And Leo just reminded me of a cockerel.

Plus he has amazing yellow lips, which I would totally draw if I were doing Amano stuff.

The only thing I don't like is how anorexic he looks. Which is weird because Amano knows how to draw him like a beefy toad: vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/f…
