Finally, finally finished this! I really wanted this to be one of my actual completed drawings so basically I did it in two sessions. I'm really happy with the result. I'm a huge Final Fantasy fan and I think FFVIII was the best in the series closely followed by FFX. Rinoa is definitely one of my most favorite characters and I really wanted to draw her. I used a reference of Camilla Belle since I've seen a lot of people comment on how they kind of look alike. I saw it, too and I decided she would be the best reference for Rinoa.
Hope you like it! I would love any comments.
Done in Photoshop CS4 on a Macbook Pro with a Wacom Bamboo tablet.

Thank you so much, I'm really glad you think it's accurate. I'm always worried when working with such characters. I've tried doing such portraits before but they never seem to actually look like them. Thank you for your lovely comment. You have a wonderful gallery.
