NIMA - Volume 1! 🍃

I can’t believe its finally here!! Nima is my original character whose story and world I’ve been developing for the past 4 years. Ever since I was a little kid, all I’ve wanted to do was to create worlds, characters and stories and I cannot wait to show you Nima’s journey and the adventure she embarks in.

Thank you so much much for the warm support, I truly appreciate it! 

There are a lot of games that stick you with a male viewpoint character as the nominal protagonist even though the story is really about a woman, but Final Fantasy X stands out to me as the only one where the fandom has just collectively decided to address that by talking about the game as though the woman in question is the player character. If you were to casually follow contemporary discussion of the game, you’d never in a million years guess that Yuna isn’t the player character - we’re all just “we recognise that the game thinks Tidus is the protagonist, but given that he’s a stupid-ass protagonist, we’ve elected to ignore him”.

Linkin Park’s; One More Light, was the heaviest inspiration for this painting. 

Hence all the stars and glitter and such, I wanted to render Prompto again for some time now, it’s been a while since I’ve done so properly so here’s something I did with Clip Studio Pro and PS! I’ve finally got the knack for painting on there now, and picking out a color palette for this was he hardest three hours of my life! The combinations were endless, but I settled on something!
