Where his white face make up and why isn't his hair a brighter blonde and why doesn't he have his signature hair curl

This picture is based on his out-of-battle sprite, which has none of those things.

I think he got some sand into his shoes, because he looks mad! xD

I always thought that he had long hair, instead of that thing on his shoulders xD

Sprite!Kefka! I'm trying to find words to explain how amazing this is, because you rarely see a well-detailed Kefka based accurately on his sprite, and this one is just perfect. I love all the details on his clothes, particularly the boots! And that single feather popping out of his ear. I hope you don't mind if I start using this artwork as reference for Kefka, because I can go blind before I can decipher his sprite clothes, I think you're the first who rendered such an accurate portrait of sprite Kefka. Love the expression too, he looks about to throw a tantrum :D

I think this is the very first fanart of sprite Kefka ever made. You should feel proud at this accomplishment!

ObstinateMelon Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2015
This is surprising. People do it for Locke, Terra, Celes, Sabin, and to an extent try with Edgar (Not many people seem like they can figure out how to draw him), but the other characters seem forgotten about or are never attempted out of Amano style. I'm proud in retrospect!

I hate to say it, because the Amano art for him as a fightable enemy made the largest impression on me, but this is definitely Kefka.  I even did a side by side comparison of blown up Kefka sprite sheets and this is the Kefka who haunted me with his laughter.  ALL the art of Kefka has gone the white faced FF-Joker route with the big painted smile, so it indoctrinated my childhood memories.  But now I remember.  The clown that was too close to normal to be frightening, that when he lost it, became an entity that made me shudder.  Who's actions, and giant mouthed laughter caused me to regard him as the most deadly of enemies I have known as he plays off his genocidal tendencies as mere foppish pranks.

Melon, you have awakened my memories and cleansed the taint from them.  Thank you.

But just FYI, when you do FF 6.0, and now you will have not choice (The power of Christ compels you!!), when Kefka appears in combat he'll need to have his wacky white faced look, though.

Well, I mean, what else are you gonna do for a hobby after you finish The Sevening?  Something that DOESN'T involve being a slave to thousands of faceless fans on the internet?

I gotta wonder if clown-face (Now a racial slur like black-face!) was the thing they were going for in the empire with their magic soldiers. That "No.24" boss you fight in the Magitek Research Facility has a completely white face on-sprite and in battle. It's certainly not on any of their, uh, female soldiers, so maybe it's something that was just forgotten about during the design of the game. Or Gestahl has really weird preferences for male soldiers... :worry: Of course Leo doesn't get it since he doesn't use magic.

Kefka's war paint, lol. How Braveheart of him. And if I ever did an FF4 comic Golbez would suddenly be 12 feet tall in battle. These things are to be expected!

I haven't been a slave in quite a long while, now that you mention it. Not that I ever was. I think when I get back into it I just need to blind myself to everything and go for it. Influence from your fans can kind of destroy you depending on what the influence is. I think I said before with Squarenix games and why people think they're so shitty these days is because they meet a lot of the demands (depending on the era); too many random battles, too many predetermined battles, too open-ended, too linear, too many characters, too few characters (lol FF13). It's like what those Star Wars prequel reviews on Youtube say, when you try to satisfy everyone you get this really bland diluted shit nobody cares about.

Face needs to be a bit paler. He is a psycho clown, after all. I guess it is based off the sprite though, so whatever!

ALL HAIL THE BEST FF VILLIAN THOUGH. I mean, you can say what you like about Sephiroth, but it boils down to this: Sephiroth/JENOVA's plan failed, Kefka's succeeded and he stayed on top for a year afterwards.

I'm not sure if Kefka really had a plan. He just wanted to see the world burn (no other-clown-references intended), but he certainly DID something instead of wait in hibernation for lots of years.

I always preferred his sprite to his crazy jester appearance, personally.

I think he looks more like a typical court jester as a sprite, where as he looks like a straight up clown in his other appearances, but I understand what you're saying.

For being the one that actually succeeded in conquering the world and obtaining godlike powers.  Say what you will about Kefka (and all of it's true), but when he sets himself an arbitrary goal of mass murder and attainment of unlimited power, he follows through with it.

:iconobstinatemelon:

Oh right, that.

But do you know who also succeeded?! Caius! Caius. ...Anyone? ...Caius?
