The GA-HQ Final Fantasy Art Tribute - Those Who Fight Further

Zell Dincht the Martial Artist from Final Fantasy VIII

Zell Dincht

Zell Dincht is one of the first three playable characters in Final Fantasy VIII and more or less a friend of Squall, he is very different from the serious main protagonist of the game and shows often his temperament..sometimes with bad results for him ūüôā

He is the first FFVIII Protagonist chosen for our Final Fantasy: Those Who Fight Further Art Tribute!

Zell Dincht FF Art Tribute 1

Why did you choose Zell Dincht?
Zell Dincht has always been one of my favorite characters from the final fantasy series, and he needs more artworks dedicated to him.

What do you like about him and about FFVIII?
Zell has a radiating personality and the energy he puts off is very captivation to me. His overall design is simple but still allows him to leave an impact. Plus, he loves hot dogs….hehehehe…
Final Fantasy VIII’s graphics and effects for the GFs and for the magic/healing attacks were awesome!

What tools did you use for the artwork?
Adobe Photoshop.

Please describe your take on him.
Zell is one of those characters that almost always are driven to give it their all, to push further and go beyond their current physical limits. So for my piece, Zell’s a little skratched up and tired, but still manages to find the strength to continue fighting while still looking cool.

Is there something else you want to tell the visitors of the Final Fantasy Art Tribute on Game Art HQ?

I hope that they enjoy everyone’s contributions to this amazing tribute.¬†

Zell Dincht FF Art Tribute 2

Why did you choose Zell Dincht?

I thought he would be a fun to draw.

What do you like about him and about FFVIII?

Zell’s personality is electric and full of passion. It is so addictive that you can’t help but smile ,or be all “heck yeah!” when drawing or playing him in FF8. FF8 is a great game anyway. It is intense and draws you in with the gameplay, monsters, and some of the graphics. Though the triple triad game in it can be a bit frustrating; its a good bonus too.

What tools did you use for the artwork?

Well at first, Zell was suppose to be done digitally. I change my mind last minute though figuring it would be a good challenge to draw him traditional and it might fit him better. At least that’s what I thought at the time. The tools used: a pencil, ink bottle, dip pens, card stock, regular color pencils, and a few references for zell’s clothes. Got to get them babies right. Nahahahahaha! XD

Please describe your take on him

Zell is almost always full of passion and does need to think abit more before he acts…but he tries to be there when he’s needed most. I wanted to capture his passion and unleash it in a blaze on the field…lol’

Zell Dincht FF Art Tribute

Why did you choose Zell Dincht?

I choose Zell because let’s face it: he’s a badass motherf@cker. You may think he’s goofy or funny at first, but those jokes are backed by a great deal of power. Hell, the guy can crack the earth with one punch.

What do you like about him and about FFVIII?

Zell is a pretty good character. Sometimes he can be a comic relief, and sometimes the player can identify with him because he’s a small town boy after all. While the story might not be the best, FFVIII had great characters like that.

What tools did you use for the artwork?

I drew with my good old pencils, and then colored with photoshop.

Please describe your take on him

I wanted to give him a determined look, something that tells “I’m about to kick some sorceress ass”
