I’ve always been a huge fan of the Black Mage in final fantasy. For this I wanted to make my own concept of one, but not anything too extravagant, just more based on the older style from Final Fantasy Tactics. The idea is making the Black Mage look little more like a excentric scientist.
I originally sketched this a year ago in MyPaint which you can see in the image below.
You’ll also find a gif showing a layer breakdown of the image as well.
