Rydia's Defeat

A late happy new year! As some of you might know, my favorite ryona character by far is Rydia from Final Fantasy IV:

I've drawn some ryona pics of her over the years:

My "ultimate" ryona project would be to draw Rydia being defeated by every monster in the game. However, there are around 200 enemies in FF4, so it's a near impossible undertaking. Some other ideas:

- Draw some as uncolored sketches only
- Ask for help
- Use a 3D model (even though I have no skills in that area)
- Use fiction (writing) for some enemies instead

Just want to leave this here and see if anyone has more ideas? It'd be great if we put something together as a community, but I get this is quite a niche character, and people have gifts in different fields. If anyone has spectacular modelling skills, I'd be open to a potential art trade, that sort of thing.

Also, if anyone wants to see more of Rydia in trouble, let me know. Maybe I'll open up another thread and gradually post my portfolio there.

Thanks!

Speaking of your portfolio, I remember you used to have a Pixiv. Didn't recall from name, but from art style. Whatever happened to that? Did it get taken down?

I had to tear myself away because it was a spiral of a time sink (which is why I'm experimenting with 3D since it's quicker). Also, I started getting ton of pushy private requests (with graphic detail), or asking constantly when the next piece is coming up. I enjoyed the back and forth, but that almost makes it worse, since I'd spend even more time, leaving little left for anything else. My interest completely plummeted after a while.

Oh wow, I remember you! Never contacted you, but I stumbled on your Pixiv awhile back. FF4 was the first RPG I really got into as a little kid, and while Rydia fanart is a little hard to find online, she has long been my favorite Final Fantasy character. So imagine my surprise to find a gallery, not only filled to the brim with Rydia fanart, but Rydia ryona art too! (plus, I enjoy seeing "game mechanics" in ryona art, like lifebars and HP counters, which I know you include sometimes)

I'd be happy to see your portfolio posted here (gimme an excuse to come back more than once every three months, lol). And as for what you should do? Personally, I like your drawing ideas. Maybe you could combine the B&W sketch and Ask for Help options? Post some black and white sketches, and encourage your fans to fill in the colors? And maybe make a checklist of monsters who have and have not been drawn yet, so if any other artist is motivated to draw one, they can see what still needs to be done.

Thanks! Well now that I've started playing with 3D, I'm thinking that'd be the better way to go. Might be disappointing to some because I get 2D has its charm, but realistically it's the only feasible way to complete a project like that in 1 lifetime.

A thread with your old pics would be a great thing though, that stuff deserves to still be online.

I also see you're doing some PoV work.. which I simply adore. Hopefully you do some F/F pics in that style :D

Thanks :D. If I ever create 3D versions of some of my characters and have new accounts, I might upload old images into a single batch early on.

Well with the PoV stuff I figured I'd go male since I assume most members of the ryona community are male. I'll take your suggestion on board though. Hope you can participate in some of the other roleplay-ish threads!

Rydia is confident she is in control in her fight against these mobs. What she doesn't know, however, is that a Mini Satana is also in the fray. The monster uses scan to pinpoint the location of her anus, then goes straight for a critical attack. Rydia, with her back turned, looks like she's about to suffer a direct hit.

Commentary: Instead of going for the super smooth shading style (like in anime), I wanted to put imperfections on her skin for realism. Tiny moles, pimples and other lumps across both butt cheeks. I felt like trying it after seeing some of those giga heroine videos, where the camera often zooms right up to the heroines' butts.

Let me know if you want to see more! Comments welcome of course.

Rydia is back in battle / peril again! Here is a scene of one of her debut battles after her vigorous training in Feymarch. Here in Lodestone Cavern, anyone who wears metallic gear will become paralyzed. Because of this, Rydia has no choice but to enter the dungeon in her default, next to defenseless gear. Still, after her aforementioned training, she was more than confident she could conquer this dungeon solo.

That was, until she met Ogre, one of the more powerful foes in the dungeon. After being knocked to the floor, an Ogre now has a foot pressed firmly on top of Rydia's stomach. The summoner shrieks in agony as the Ogre begins to apply pressure. With her HP rapidly dropping, will this be the place where Rydia tastes her first embarrassing defeat?

Many months later, Rydia and her friends are much further in their journeys to defeat the villainous Golbez. Rydia now has much more powerful gear, not to mention a lot of experience. Her high HP shows she has developed a much higher pain tolerance.

Unfortunately, this all means nothing as she enters the Babil Tower and faces Mad Ogre, the most powerful ogre in Rydia's world. Boasting an attack power that almost doubles that of a traditional Ogre, Rydia once again finds herself in peril. Before dying, the Ogres have informed these Mad Ogres of the summoner's weakpoint, her belly. As the Mad Ogre crushes Rydia's stomach with all his might, the summoner's screams can be heard even from the bottom floor of the Babil Tower.

The Ogre gave Rydia the first taste of defeat, and now, the Mad Ogre may open the door for her into the after life...

Her agonized face is great. The scenario of a heroine having to abandon her equipment/weapons due to certain reasons and that making her weak enough to be defeated by a supposedly lesser foe sounds good too.

Thanks! When I play these games, I'm always thinking of how to turn these story scenarios into sexy ryona situations, haha.
