A recreation of Marle or Princess Nadia from the game Chrono Trigger. I have seen many images of the first character design of her by Akira Toriyama, the artist responsible for Chrono Trigger character designs and Dragon Ball Z. His second rehash of the Trigger characters for later game ports looked more simpler and less effort placed on it. Searching for either of these images turned up unsatisfactory in terms of quality and size. I took the one I liked the most and recreated it. Although, not completely matching the original design, it wouldn't of mattered anyway since some details were not present in the crap quality images I managed to find of it.

I don't think he did the drawings for the PSX/DS version. I'd guess it was the studio responsible for the animated cutscenes.

Normally these types of fanarts are boring, but you've thrown so much of your own style and work into it that it really does look better than the original! My hat's off to you for that.

The anime scenes weren't that appealing to me anyways. I like this picture, and it's better than whoever did the original, but that isn't saying much.
