Magical Girl Rinoa

Time to give her a new design as she has a very special meaning to me! Here is Magical Girl Rinoa Heartilly from Final Fantasy 8 <3

I would like to get back to what I said about abusive parents a while ago - the emotionally abusive part. There are those who urge you to take the profession that they want for you or live the life they wanted to have. Often they even use you as a means of money making for them. If you refuse they drop you off as fast as a hot potato of course in a very offensive way. (Perhaps you can relate). To me it's not my understanding of love at all, but a way to follow their own egoistical path at all cost. 
I don't think that they are aware that it hurts the soul of a child more than you can imagine. And even as adults we desperately seek to cure these wounds, but for many it becomes a never ending circle.
You need to remember one thing though: The pictures they put into your head are not your's but their's - it's your life and no one else can live it for you! So always follow your own voice and don't let them put you down!

What a Beautiful Picture :).


Suits Rinoa Perfectly Well.


If they do a sequel to Final Fantasy VIII in the future, then maybe it will go along these lines, although it is along shot, but we can all hope for the better and think positive :D.

Extraordinary work !
It's complicated to grow up children...
energy, love...
very exhausting.
Removing false values put in them by television, the consuming society...
Showing them art... nature...
Guiding them but not forcing them...

It demands an every moment attention... not easy.

Aww, this is so cuteeee!! I love Rinoa, FF8 such a great game! :love:

I perfectly understand what you say about abusive parents and emotional damage. I do not have abusive parents but a lot of relative of mine, and also friends have always attacked me with very rude words, and words always leave something inside you that is very difficult to drop out. Hopefully we can snap out of it.

Yes, I hope so, too - and thank you so much! <3

I need to keep remembering that in my head if I don't wanna let those negative things get into me. :nod:

What a lovely drawing of Rinoa :lol:! Even though I don't see Final Fantasy VIII very much, I really love her. Especially her relationship with Squall :squee: :love:!!! Nice job with the design you did on Rinoa's outfit. Different from her original look, but so cute, and I love it~! :D :heart: :aww:
