The Promised Land by lillilotus The Promised Land by lillilotus
"See? Everything's....ok"

Ah Aeris~ I may never have played a Final Fantasy game, but you are a wonderful character~ ^.^ I have, however, watched Aeris' death scene, and I....*might*....have cried a little....but because of that, I feel like water is really closely linked with Aeris; the water is basically her grave, she heals the geostigma with rain, and at MCM, myself and Aeris I were saying to Nikku (cosplaying as Cloud) 'Why did you let us die, Cloud?! It wasn't Sephiroth that killed us; you dumped us in a pond and we drowned! How could you do that, Cloud~?!' (he'd whacked me with the buster sword, and we made a joke that it was him who killed Aeris instead of Sephiroth :XD: )

I've wanted to try watery effects for a while now, and I had a particular FFVII picture in my mind.....which I then changed slightly to create this. I have to say, in the least vain way possible, I'm really happy with this! The water effect is pretty good for my standards, the gradient gives it depth, drawing the hair was tons of fun, and the face; OMG the face! It has shading on it; and tasteful make-up; and it looks realistic instead of crappy like 90% of the other attempts! :'D Her eyes are quite pretty too~ They look like Materia~ I'm generally happy with the whole thing! :heart:

Fun Fact; this was going to have Tifa in it, who would've been floating in the opposite direction, but I think it's more meant to be for Aeris' - especially with her body being ceremoniously dumped there by Cloud *glares* >_>

Hi I just wanted to let you know that this blog, ff7-hell.tumblr.com/, has reposted your fanart and was bashing it. The blog is really terrible and negative so I tried to get it deleted but tumblr support said that they need to hear from the artist themselves. So if you have a tumblr please report this blog to get it shut down.

Hi! Thank you for bringing this to my attention; as awful a thing this is, it's appreciated that you took the time to say something to me. Unfortunately I don't have a Tumblr account - but my 2 sisters and friends who brag about how 'brilliant' the site is sure do! I'll be sure to let them know incase they can do something. Out of curiosity, there isn't a way to report things without being a member, is there? Thanks again

I think you should be able to. I think you just have to look up tumblr's report email and send in the link to your email and the link to the post on the blog. You have to state that you're the original artist and that you want your art taken down since it was reposted without permission.
