Oh wow, I did not know anyone else had tried this. I like how yours came out. And I see your design is a little more detailed than mine. I was essentially making a larger version of a rupee when I made my original. Overall probably the same method of creation, clear resin, small ball, and just the right application of dye.
I love FFVI and would love to try making something else from it. But there really are very few iconic items from that game. Given the graphic style Square used at the time.
I made an original in the crystal shape out of fimo. After baking it I then added mold silicone mold maker around it which made a perfect crystal shaped mold. Then it's just filling the silicone mold with clear slightly green resin and drop a red marble in when I finish.
kick ass!!!! wish i could get sumthing like thoughs to collect. i'm trying to get all the game baist gems and crystals to ad as a display when i'm able to find cool stuff like this and more. keep up the awsome work!! peace..v,^_^
In some of the original Yoshitaka Amano concept art, characters typically have lots of little pieces of jewelry. You could try looking at that for some FFVI inspiration. Maybe you could come up with your own idea of what gil looks like too?
I do think you would be fantastic at making materia and various other FF icons, weapons, etc. You could give swords like Masamune, Excalibur, Ragnarok, etc a shot as they typically show up in all FF games, including VI. I know I am very tempted to grab my wallet and ask "How much for one of these?" lol
well, as game baist gems go. ff, sonic, zelda and i ges crash bandicoot. i think theres a lot more games with gems in them. but this is just a bit of info i ges... well, keep it up and i'll be waiting for more of your kickin work. peace..v,^_^
Do I remember FF6? Boy, do I! One of my all time favorite games! Terra is one of my top ten favorite gaming characters.
But that's not really how I imagined Magicite looked like when I played the game... I always thought they were rounded around the edges, more like and egg... or maybe a stretched pokemon ball. Don't know how they made them look in the newer CG game though... I'm an old school gamer.
Still, those look pretty awesome regardless. Congrats!
Wow ! real Magicite ! how can i make some for myself ?it would be useful in my Terra cosplay project .
i really like FF6. it's one of the best final fantasy episodes ever ! I still have a bit a difficult to understant what's everyone finds legendary in FF7. Sure the 7th was great i had great time playing it thanks the playstation network ! But i didn't feel like it's the greatest ever (and Kefka is much WAY psycho and evil than Sephiroth)
It does look like soap material. Something I'd definitely use. FUN! I love the Magicite shards, better than materia as well. Who can forget FF6? My fave game. These are COOL! How did you make it? Whats the tinted clear material, some kind of clay or plastic?
