Hello Guys, i'm actually participating in a 3D realtime character comp at Cg Chat. The brief was to create a sequel of a Final Fantasy I / IX character. I've choosen Adelbert Steiner from FFIX. Here is the resulting concept.

He is supposed to be 30 years olders than in FFIX, so a 60 years old dude reconverted in the pirat business.
Hope ya like it!! :)

VERY COOL!! I am so glad you chose a FF character that had some depth. He sure looks different...but not unbelievabily different. He looks like he has "lightened up" a bit since FF9. I think you did a very good job of pushing the characters tendancies. Great job! It was a good choice-keeping his thick outlined eyes.

Your drawing skills are very up to par and your design is interesting and full of character.

Very stylish character Fedron. Bravo,very beautiful creation. A little Sean Connery in him to me.:)

Great scroll designs,brilliant and cool hat. Armor design,fur lining on the top of the cape is very nice as well.Just all in all very nice work.:applause: :beer:

Wow lot of feed back!! Thanks guys!! :)

Virtuoso ---> Hehe yes about the sean connery feeling, i've taken some inspiration in him and of course the other old guy, Clint!!!

ansonkit ----> This is the best compliment ever, and maybe too much anson!!, tetsuya is really top of the top.

I'm posting a pic of the original steiner so you have a better idea from where i've started. And thanks again to everybody :)

Great work! :buttrock:
There is only one thing I don't like about the first one. He seems to be a bit flat over his knuckles.

the Final Fantasy is by far my favorite game, and that STEINER rocks! really gives the FF feeling, great render of the style!!!

huge compliments!

on the front page I was sure it was a stylish Ramirez from Higlander !!!!

U know Sean Connery

I love the design of the character, im really conceptualizing characters. One criticism that I think everyone can grow from is the dynamics of the character's pose. Just by putting his hand on his waist adds weight and makes him look more powerful.

Maybe you weren't going for that, but I think that could put you over the top for the competition.

I love the style!

As much as i hated the guy in the game, this is a really awesome concept.

:airguitar :buttrock:


04-24-2003, 12:59 PM
Just wonderful concept, I can only agree with what everyone else said !

And as a fan of the FF series, I must admit you did one heck of a good job ;)

Two thumbs up ! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

04-24-2003, 03:20 PM
Thanks everybody for all the comments :) !!!

Apt Pupil ----> Hey thanks mate :) I can't believe it they putted it in tha front page!!!
Aehbon ---> Thanks Aehbon :) As about the pose, it's right he is quite static but as he was made in a modeling intention i tryed to keep it the more frontal i could. This way i'll use the coloring as a base for the texturing too.
baby ----> Yes he is :) , allways loved Ramirez and Sean!!
ElKrullo ----> Sorry my english is not very good , what are the knuckles?
Gavin_G ---> To be honnest i hated him too :p but that 's why i choosed him, he really needed a hand ;) !!

The knuckles are what hold the fingers together. They are the bendible joints;)

04-24-2003, 06:03 PM
Doh!! Thanks Apt..:)

Very well done! Definetely feels like an FF character I love it! I am a fan of Square Soft *cough* Square Enix :) Their RPGs are supreme ;)
