Aeris of FF7 reborn in the lifestream
I was going to name this pic "Reborn" but "Return to Innocence" sound better. It's a name of a song from Enigma

One could say I was somewhat inspired by this song. The lyrics sort of go with the theme of the Lifestream along with Aeris's personality.

In case you haven't played FF7 before, the lifestream is like the soul or blood of the earth or however you want to call it and after a human or any living thing dies, they return to the flow of lifestream.


Anyway, i'm not too pleased with that I did with the lifestream here. Guess I could have added more highlights to it. Quite a simple picture over all. -_-

Hope you guys like it better than me lol

Return to Innocence~By Enigma

Thats not the beginning of the end
Thats the return to yourself
The return to innocence.
Love - devotion
Feeling - emotion
Love - devotion
Feeling - emotion
Dont be afraid to be weak
Dont be too proud to be strong
Just look into your heart my friend
That will be the return to yourself
The return to innocence
If you want, then start to laugh
If you must, then start to cry
Be yourself dont hide
Just believe in destiny
Dont care what people say
Just follow your own way
Dont give up and use the chance
To return to innocence
Thats not the beginning of the end
Thats the return to yourself
The return to innocence
Dont care what people say
Follow just your own way
Follow just your own way
Dont give up, dont give up
To return, to return to innocence.
If you want then laugh
If you must then cry
Be yourself dont hide
Just believe in destiny

Hi.  Would it be alright if I featured this piece of art in a video about Aeris set to a cover of her theme that I composed?  I would link to you and credit you in the annotations/description.  Would that be alright?

Aerith is really one of my favourite character of all the FF. Maybe my favourite female !
I love her, and your picture is beautiful....

Loove :heart:

Nice lifestream art, nice Aeris pose. This is a proper digitalized approach as her posture and its congruence with the background(lifestream) is very abstract...Thus a very Cetra/Ancient ambience!

I'm sure you've had enough comments XDD but I love the art, it's beautifully drawn and being that you listened to Enigma while drawing it makes me love it all the more. ~
