Rinoa by drcloud Rinoa by drcloud
A few years ago, when we were slightly less well acquainted but probably on better terms, the good lady Hirabeth asked me to draw Rinoa from FF8. I seem to remember that this happened during the christmas break, and I remember drawing a LOT of bad Rinoa pics (most of them being ludicrously busty, although I think that was encouraged at the time?) over the course of those couple of weeks.

Fast-forward to present day, and I still can't seem to get her quite right. Aside from the fact it might not be a great likeness, I kinda like this picture, and I'm not quite sure why...

Beautiful! You definitely captured Rinoa's trademark smile, and I like the sole usage of blue for coloring/shading. Well done!

I don't know why do you like? it's a fantastic piece! she is gorgeous! About three years ago I find and favorite it. No happy enough, I make a manipulation with this draw to be the header on my dead blog.
I would love to show you, if you like it.

Nicely done. I see what you mean about the likeness, but there is something there that has captured her..it might be the eyes? Meh, either way it's great :D

Aww, that's so lovely ^^
I have likedher since, when I saw her. We had the game, when I was somekind of 5-6
years old. And then I started to pair Squall and Rinoa all ready ID
But about this pic: It marvelous. I love that how you are shading this picure with blue
and used only blue colour with coloring.
I like that pose, too. You're so good with human anatomy :)
I'll gonna :+favlove: this.

Whoa that's amazing. One thing: Her nose, I think, is a little of on the angle it's been drawn at. Apart from that though this is stunning. Outstanding work. <3 Favved.

I'm much more of rinoa fan than a tifa fan after looking at this pic. That's saying a lot. I always really dug the designs in ff8, hers will stick with me for a long time. Your art is a really good homage to that wonderful moment when any of us were acquainted with Squall's Girl. Excellent

I love the eyes in this one, you should take a wack at Beatrix from FF IX. Another badass female character that Enix seems to pump out like test bunnies lol.

I'm like lightyears late, but this awesome piece deserves praise nevermind how late.

I think what makes it so impressive are the eyes and your original perspective. If I ever wanted to learn how to sketch and finish properly, this would be the excellence I strive for.
