Final Fantasy VIII - Zell Dincht by TulioMinaki Final Fantasy VIII - Zell Dincht by TulioMinaki
After a long time studying Zbrush, finally I made one more piece. One more Final Fantasy Fan Art for all the Fans of this serie (like me). Final Fantasy VIII Zell Dincht.

To be honest my favorite Final Fantasy is VII but VIII has a special meaning to me. It was my first Final Fantasy. Squall, Zell, Seifer and Edea were my favorites and considering that a lot of artists are always giving atention to the main characters of FF series like Cloud, Squall or Tidus, I decided to make Zell Dincht which is a character I really like. Well, I hope someday Square Enix consider to make a movie of Final Fantasy VIII like they did with VII. I would love to see all the characters and summons in astonishing CG.

Hope everyone likes it. Specially Final Fantasy Fans :D

Softwares used

Zbrush: Used Zbrush for almost everything in this art.
3D Max: Base mesh of the jacket
Photoshop: Composed the render passes acquired in Zbrush and used for some color corrections too.

Thanks for Watch.

This is amazing! I can't even tell if this is a real person or just CGI.

Oh my goodness, it looks absolutely amazing and realistic! :wow: I agree with you that they should make a movie out of Final Fantasy VIII - so we can see our favorite characters and the badass summoned GFs in splendid HD CG quality. x) Brilliant work!

Hey! Really cool and well created Zell! Goes right into my favourites.
By the way, Final Fantasy VIII was my first FF game back when i was kid, unluckily my CD back then had a damaged on it, I never finished it because of that. However, years later, I got a PS3 and when I sow that they were selling the old PS1 games I bought VIII and IX. Both of them have a special meaning to me.

This is a really great piece, I thought it was a cosplay at first. You've got some great talent there. :)

P.S. You made him look sexi xD

Oh my goodness.  Zell came to life!  Seriously though, this is actually incredible.
Naeles Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Totally awesome!!!! FFVIII is my favorite, too. Zell was a very dynamic character! He always made me laugh, and his design is very cool. You definately captured the best aspects of Zell's design with this picture:) I hope Square Enix will make an FFVIII movie, too! I would love to see that!
zezexfinalform Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2013

omg it looks awesome, have tried Zbrush but I'm really a beginner and I know it takes a lot of time to master it, so really, this kicks ass! I know what you mean, I would love if SE could make a movie of every successful game, even ff10 for that matter :) yuna would look like a goddess, my favorite character :) hope you create more masterpieces like this!
