Why is she holding snakes? According to this, Rikku has a fear of snakes. I figured I'd put a spin on that and do something weird along the lines of Samus taking a baby metroid out for a walk. So here, she's gotten over her fear of snakes and is playing around with them!
This was really fun to work on, and I'm glad to have been a part of the art project.
