1 (who?)
I work at an art center that runs a summer art camp for children. On my first day, one of the teachers I was pretty familiar with happened to have the official art book to Final Fantasy IX brought over for the kids to look at as a reference for cartoon making.

I was practically geeking over it. (LOL XD) I could not put it down and was all like "How come you never told me you HAD this!?" to the teacher. It's been a week now and I memorized it page to page. 'Nuff to say, I wanted one as well. So while I'm searching for the internet to buy one, I memorized and sort of copied the style to FFIX on scrap for practice.

I did this for two reasons.
1: I loved the style, which in my opinion made 9 unique in its own right to the franchise, and wanted to implement a similar cartooning style to my original work in the future. (in case if already don't know, I'm talking about work on this account --> :icondevantthedeviant:)
2: I can try this kind of approach to the comic. Let's see if this pleases you folks. ;)

The comic will be returning to the shading style with a LITTLE coloring here and there until I can get some other volunteer artist to participate in this comic. I only have one artist who's style I've seen in FF9 sequential art and some others maybe presenting soon. But I have to say guys, after reading that book, my art has looked interestingly better with FF9 original art style.

And by the way, they are NOT CHIBIS! I look at them as cartooningly short. :D
