Final Fantasy HD - Fighter by TheGrandHero Final Fantasy HD - Fighter by TheGrandHero
Did this as a little test to see if old-style 8-bit graphics could be recreated in high resolution by maintaining sharp outlines and sticking to a small palette of bold colors. And low and behold, it actually worked.

That right hand (his right) is a little wonky, but that's the way it is in the original sprite. You'll notice they began doing the hands a little differently in Final Fantasy II and III, so apparently even Square picked up on this way back when.

This originated as a concept for how I might do the art in a game I'd like to make; recapturing that old-style charm, but in a new-fangled higher resolution. Not sure if I'll end up doing that, though; I hate when things are old-school just for the sake of being old school. Also, if I did it this way, I'm afraid if I did a sequel or something in a different style everybody would get upset since they were just playing it for the graphics. XD

Done completely in Adobe Illustrator; exported by way of Photoshop.
