[Daily Doodle] FF Tactics - White Mage Cid Orlandeau

@[livejournal.com profile] ff_press: [FF Tactics] [personal profile] justira: Cid Orlandeau White Mage (+ Bonus Cid Devout/Seer) (G)

Daily Doodle: You know what, I'll just make a new tag for this series/theme.

So Cid is the badassest party member in Tactics (he and Agrias should make out a lot I'm just sayin'). I was originally going to do him as a black mage, which is what I'd been babbling about all week. But you know what? You know what job class everyone thinks is pretty drab, boring, weak, and passive?

White mages.

And you know what a rather uncomfortable correlation is? They're all women.

So here we go. Cid as a white mage. (Note to self: Do some lady kicking ass white mage style soon.) I do think the white mage designs are as a whole not very exciting. So uh. I kind of. Went a little afield here. I always thought the male White Mage's robe was pretty damn boring compared to the female's fun poncho. Also, one of my favourite designs from the entirety of FFIII is Luneth's White Mage. Those don't... really mesh all that well with Cid's outfit, but you know what? I don't care. I had fun.

In fact, I had enough fun for two doodles again. Further notes under the cuts.

Time: ~45mins - 1hr

I decided to reverse the usual red/white pattern of a white mage, because Cid's cloak is already kind of a rusty red and I thought it would make the outfit feel more "him" without losing the white mage feel. Also: if he hits you with the goddamn healing rod you had BETTER be fucking better.

... and then.... I couldn't resist. Because the natural evolution of the white mage class? Is the Devout or Seer, and Cid already had the hood... >.>

Time: 2-3 mins

Go ahead and be the first to make fun of his kitty ears.
