Black Gate - Flux Tidus by nachtwulf Black Gate - Flux Tidus by nachtwulf
The Flux has rolled through the Shadowlands again, bringing all sorts of weirdness in its wake! Up to and including turning poor Tidus into a fu-lion. (This isn't all /that/ surprising, actually, since Tidus @ Black Gate is spiritually tied to one to keep him from fading away.)

Anyway, he's cute and fuzzy. I made his front paws way too big, but when I got done, I decided I liked them that way, so I didn't change them. Makes him look more puppylike.

Hey, he could fit into Pridelands in that look. :D Love the stripes and the necklace. :D *gives Tidus a hug*

It's a great look for him.

That expression on his face is great, totally personable and friendly, the sideways look gives him a somewhat secretive aspect as well. Grr. I want an animal like this!

This is a great view on something old! The tiger look is done very well.
I can actuall see this sort of as Tidus, except for maybe the smile that seems 'too' goofy, it is great.
The tatooing is good and the colors are spot on.
Great work.

I like how you put the [oh crap. I think I've been away from FFX too long....]......ah. His team symbol thingy >.<; on his rear leg. [apparently, no one noticed that, or commented on it. o.O]

It's a very nice piece, all together. ^_^

He does look adorable. Kinda brings a new meaning for Beauty and the Beast. Just hope Yuna doesn't start singing some dumb song or something.

PS-BTW, what happened to all the chicks. I know FF isn't all that great at making their females. (INMHO, 90% of them, especally if they're heroes, are either ice queens, goody-goody bimbos, or childish twerps with the mentality of someone half their age.)

That's awesome... makes me think of what Red XIII would have been like had he had a true compatriot in FFX (I don't think Kimari counts).

"*Kitty*!" </Boo>

Mentioned it to you already, but I really love the design. From the Abes 'symbol' on his rump, to the oversized paws, it all looks great, Nachi! :D

But the question is, when he talks does he stick an "r" at the beginning of each word like Scooby Doo?

Thats kinda creepy, Or just coincidence, Or maybe I just need sleep.
I named Tidus "Flux" on my 2nd Run on FFX...

Anyway, Funzo

Hrm.. maybe I should rejoin blackgate sometime.. It'd give me the chance to explore some ideas.. c_c

Anyways, I love the shading in this, its subtle, but it still looks 3d. I really like how you made his marking resemble the Abe's insignia, its a nice touch.

And wouldn't he be more kittylike? ..since he's a tiger? :P

He's floofy and stripey! YAY!!!!
saesama Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2004
Wow. That's a great concept, and it fit's Tidus well. The markings are awesome, and the paws do make him look like a big puppy.

I wanna rub his belly.
