view models

I was playing around with Noesis to view/export models from Final Fantasy XII when I noticed some of the models look rather goofy in their T-pose. Namely the ones with some kind of held accessory.

For instance, here’s what this Nu Mou looks with its animation data:

And here’s what it looks like in its default pose:


Gonna need a trip to the ER for that one

I kind of hate 3D fighters from an artistic point of view, the models look weird in order to read properly during gameplay. The backgrounds often don’t mesh with the character art style. Kinda creepy sometimes…

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.
