Faris (Sprite / Amano) - Final Fantasy V


This is my sprite interpretation of Faris from Final Fantasy V.
I thought "she's a pirate, a pirate captain, and should therefore be garbed up accordingly." I found some belly dancer hipscarves on eBay for a VERY small amount of cash (a few quid quite literally for some of them) and looked at them again and again. Coins. Pirate. Coins. Pirate. Ok, they'll look good. So, I tried to put everything together with 'the pirate in mind'.

Yeah, I looked her up and I've pretty much only seen us on the list. O_O' She needs more love. I hope my interpretation turns out alright.

DefineImagineMJ posted on 11 July, 2010 - 15:02
Yeah. It's currently just me and you, and Sasashie has the red version up too. That's it! Not good really. Hopefully when we get more versions done (and Sasashie too) people will be more interested in her!

^_^ Thanks. Ikkaku-Kun is now calling me "Jingley" because of the dancer scarves. I'm not going to escape from it now.

you look amazing!! :O great job

FuriePhoenix posted on 28 August, 2010 - 21:39
you look great as Faris! And purple really suits you hair wise!

DefineImagineMJ posted on 29 August, 2010 - 18:33
Thanks guys. It was a bit of a wing it in terms of the style I used, but I think it works. Yeah I guess purple does suit me, but I still prefer red. :-)

You make such a lovely Faris =] great work!

DefineImagineMJ posted on 14 September, 2010 - 16:01
Thank you Tif!

Lovely outfit, i think this character really suits you.

DefineImagineMJ posted on 5 November, 2010 - 23:09
I always pick the tough nut female characters. ;-) It's a part of who I am.

Irynmudda posted on 19 July, 2011 - 00:41
I love your Faris design! I can't believe I never noticed this :) I'm happy you have her purple hair, I'm not sure why, but I prefer the purple to the blonde :)

BabemRoze posted on 22 August, 2011 - 22:34
I LOVED your Faris :D It was so beautiful!

DefineImagineMJ posted on 31 August, 2011 - 15:23
Thanks. ^_^' I think I like my second version with the jacket-dress a little better, but both of them work I guess. Yeah, I see the purple hair as being more interesting too, although the blonde is the Amano design, and I intend to do those versions too.

My Interpretation

I have almost finished my interpretation of the sprite of Faris from Final Fantasy V. I added a little bit of an Amano effect I think, but as she's a pirate I decided to make the pieces I bought for her "pirate style". I will get a sword for her eventually, but right now I need to concentrate on the others. I'll add pictures of the sword when I get one.
