FINAL FANTASY XIV [ 19 / ∞ ]
“ Upon capture by a wicked Hingan onmyoji, the nine-tailed fox spirit slumbering deep within the young maiden Mikuzume awakens. Now, the only way to stop the legendary Tamamo Gozen is with an excessive display of force. ”
“When you’re dealing with the fantastical, it’s always a big challenge to try and make these things look real, so you’ve got to try and echo reality as much as possible and lean into that so that there is enough familiarity there that the audience sort of buy it a little bit more easily. […] The attention to detail is just so much fun to go back and look at. Bringing these characters to life, almost as much work goes into it as a hero character. It’s beautiful stuff.” — Christopher Townsend, visual effects supervisor on SHANG-CHI AND THE LEGEND OF THE TEN RINGS (2021) dir. by Destin Daniel Cretton
It was a three way tie for characters! So for the next three weeks I’ll be drawing those three in the winning “Villain” theme!
First up is…
Raf! Or “Harbinger” as we already know he actually has a villain persona!
Next week we’ll see someone else as a villain, perhaps they’ll actually be a villain like Raf, or perhaps it’ll be more alternate universe style… who knows!
Sometimes I wonder what it would be like if you had stayed. What art we would have on the walls - yours and mine overlapping, photos of each other blurry and laughing. How many plants we would have let overcrowd our floor, how many poems i’d read to make you sleepy, how many breakfasts we would spend saying “after this we go right back to bed.” We were always trying to make the other person laugh but I picture more often just how you’d look in my kitchen, stirring a coffee and humming tunelessly. Maybe we would spend every Friday dancing. Maybe you’d have taught me embroidery or how to sing and I’d have shown you waltzing. Maybe we would have a dog or a cat or an engagement ring. Maybe we would have a secret stash of your favorite candy. Maybe you would have loved my mom and maybe she would have said you were good for me.
Maybe. Maybe. Maybe.
🖤🥀 thinking of bellas powers!
so bellona can’t see other spirits when she’s in her corporeal, “non ghost” form. but as a ghost she can see and interact with other spirits. it’s like another way that she can extract info about people that the powerful want to get rid of is by her talking to their loved ones. along with that, she can attach herself the way ghosts can and read their thoughts through their feelings. not like MIND reading per say, but she can tell a lot about her target through what their feeling when she’s there. and then there’s the dream aspect to her abilities. It’s one way she can see into their pasts is through dreams AND she can manipulate them by giving them nightmares. people can get awfully desperate and prone to make mistakes/ show themselves when they’re being plagued with nightmares or feelings of negativity.
BUT AT THE SAME TIME the more she uses said apparition form the more she loses control of herself in the world of the living so to speak! it got to a point in her time working for fisk that she started to look rather… ghostly. VERY almost transparent because she was using them so much. foggy and karen both thought it was a trick of the light but… was bella transparent?
