Bunny and Clyde by AshleyCope Bunny and Clyde by AshleyCope
Balthier and Fran. There's a story to this, but I'm sure it's only amusing to me. Anyway, there's not nearly enough Final Fantasy XII fanart in the world :(

A beautiful piece! The lighting, composition, and mood are all very much on point. I love the story conveyed in just one image! Well done!

I love this.  The way you captured the light source(s) so subtly bringing out just enough of the character's features so you know who they are and what they are doing.  Balthier, topless, is pretty hot too, not gonna lie XD.  I love that reflection in his glasses.  Such a nice touch.  Overall, you brought a lot of soft colors and expressions into a simple yet powerful piece that really depicts what these characters may be like in their down time.

Had to loop back around and leave a comment (likely again) to et you know that even in 2015, this image is still my favorite impression of these two.

I'm likely wrong, but I get the feeling that she's telling him that it's unwise to collect evidence of one's notoriety, and and that there's a better photo on page 6. This scene so perfectly encapsulates them - dressed in nothing but loot.
the little details! the belts, the suggestive assortment on the night table, just perfect.
So old, so great. 
I'd love to see an update of this if you're ever bereft of inspiration.

The detail is quite lovely in this. Very nice job and you're right about there not being enough fanart on FFXII. We need more like this!

Yep, because keeping knotted pieces on a table would be filthy 9_9;

Which leads me to think about those pearls in that cup. Expensive taste in drinks or "alternative use"?

Which leads me to Fran and Balthier's eyes here. Fran's eyeing that monster of a jewel around Balthier's neck and clearly plotting... Balthier looks at her face and is clearly worried ;D

You just made my night. Maybe even my whole YEAR with this! Absolutely awe-inspiring. I found myself staring at it for so long. I almost even missed the condom on the table. You sneaky beast. ;) I love the acutely accurate depictions of what I believe the characters would do in their spare time. I cannot say I love this enough!

Okay, if this was any more incredible, I WOULD DIE. I just love how they're covered in fancy loot, yet there's still something missing. Something you can see in Fran's eyes. In fact, I must say that this is my favorite depiction of Fran. I will now proceed to throw my money at the screen and hope you take it.
