Journey To Esthar by iamymai Journey To Esthar by iamymai
so i was busy replaying final fantasy viii a few months ago, and i was especially struck by the part where squall carries rinoa across the horizon bridge to esthar. i'm such a sap! :giggle:

this has been waiting for me to finish it for a couple of months at least. i had mostly finished the coloring job, but then i just left it. lost inspiration i guess. so yeah, the original sketch is the lineart, and the rest is a speedy paint job. especially the clouds. i just can't get myself to spend as much time as i should on clouds. :shrug:

reference used: official character art for costume details
squall, rinoa (c) squareenix

Very nice depiction of a great scene but Rinoa's hair wasn't that long :D.

You gotta behold the idea if his buddies didn't go with him, he would probably go to Esthar with Rin on his back ^^.

Its nice to know that you payed attention to the game in detail. I hate it when people play these games and dont remember anything about them. These games are meant to be taken in with every detail. ugh... frustraing. Like, when i talk to someone about it who says they've played im like, "do you remeber this part?" and they wont have a clue! its cool that you actually gave this part credit. I thought it was so sweet.

The jacket and pants look awesome! @_@ And I like his eyes; although I think there's something with the nose and mouth. However, good composition overall. Nice job! XD

Hmm, if that caught your eye can figure of at least another scene or two that will. :nod:

8 don't compare to the epic that is 6 but I've come to respect it.
