I am a HUGE sucker for Fran and Balthier. Don't ask why. Ohoho. Drew this while chatting with my sister, it's quite simple, no?
Lots of inaccuracies... I didn't have great reference, but it's the thought that counts: How friggin SEXY they are!

ohohoho.

Lol, i love them so much too, and this picture is such a great portrayal of them. Haven't beaten it yet either (stuck on that darn White Mousse hunt!) But you are right, they are incredibly sexy. Though the more i play the more i like Basch, lol.

I swear, only she could get away with wearing claws AND heels on the same footwear ;) They really are sexy though; I remember in the beginning when she starts freaking out from the mist and Balthier says something like "I always knew Fran didn't like to be tied up" in his sultry voice lol

Good lord, is Fran and Balthier one of the most sexiest couples in FF... like... EVER?! It's their outfits, I swear... I dig a man that can sport sandals, too... mmm...
And there are so many great scenes with them, too... especially the one after you've defeated Cid in the Ridorana Cataract dungeon... [I also have yet to beat the game, so I await any other amazing cutscenes woooooo~] Huurnnnngh! XD

I dig it. Fran and Balthier were probably the few characters in the game I didn't mind.

I'm all about her large mane... ohohohoho. I think I make her look more, feral sometimes. Which she should be. Too many draw her just "pretty", heh.
Sannkkyou~

Their poses look so relaxed. Balthier especially looks content enough to slip off into dreamland.

Fran's hair is FUN, I love all the shapes.

Every time I see Balthier now, I think about how much he kicks ass in the PSP ver. of FFT. It's so awesome! I love this picture! For some reason, it feels kind of retro to me... maybe it's the colors..?
