Awesome job on this! Kefka is the Japanese counterpart to the Joker for me, and the way you've captured that composed, yet scheming, evil, and clearly insane expression is exactly how I imagined him to be.
Continuing discussion - Y'know, I just can't see him as the same guy as the Joker. They're both cool, but I dunno - the Joker seems more insane and goofy while Kefka, to me, seems more cruel and needlessly blood-thirsty. Between the two, I kinda prefer Kefka. I'm glad you find it an accurate portrayal regardless!
Sure! While I love both Joker and Kefka, I'm with you in saying that I prefer Kefka. I think one of my favorite lines he ever spoke (at least in the English version, I don't know if he said this in the Japanese version) was just before the final battle when he said something to the effect of "You all sound like something out of a self-help book!" For me, he's the best FF villain ever, and one of my favorite villains overall!
