This is brilliant! I love their expressions as they watch Ultimecia resort to her final form. It's spectacular, and you captured the emotion perfectly. They're all within character at that moment.:thumbsup: Rinoa is in fear, Zell completely shocked, and Squall just ready to end it all right now. Amazing!:wow:

On a side note - I never realized Ultimecia's lower half was more like an upside woman until just recently. Creepy for sure...:iconshiverplz:


Final Fantasy VIII is my favorite installment, and I also always loved Ultimecia. You depict her very well here! She comes off as a truly frightening adversary, as one would expect she should.

Thanks dude ;) About Ultimecia I thought about a theory. And If Ultimecia isn't the "woman with white hair" that we know? I mean: In the last battle he says "I AM THE TRUE ULTIMECIA" while the human form is under that monster! When the True Ultimecia makes the magics, her absorbs the power from the under body! So I thought.... maybe "Ultimecia" is only an evil entity that has need a human body (the witches) for set off its power! Have more sense for me ;)

Hmm...you could be on to something. I really wish they had emphasized some things about Ultimecia a bit more in the game.

Shes a very tragic villain when you get down to it aye?

Everything she suffers in the future is her own fault exactly because she tries to avoid her destined death at the hands of Squall who is remembered in her time as the Legendary SeeD. By trying to avoided her own fate via time compression she ends up causing it in the first place.

I know! I love that about FFVIII -- it really does have a more deep and emotional background than people give it credit for. With the theme of the game being love/destiny, everything flows together so well, even regarding Ultimecia. She was doomed from the start and didn't realize it. It almost makes her inevitable downfall really sad.

All she wanted to do as avoid dying...and, ironically, she actually makes it so she does just that.

Indeed.

I like to imagine that Ultimecia hated herself on some level because all the persecution she likely suffered before becoming a tyrant was caused by her future self without her having a choice in the matter at the time etc.

If anything the real villain of VIII could be said to be fate itself

True. Which makes it even crueler since it seemed to be against Ultimecia, and with Squall and co.

Exactly, the because of the time loop caused by time compression things like Raine dying in childbirth and Laguna never been with his son Squall when he grew up happened etc. Fates screwed everyone.

Thank you so much! I love Ultimecia and I think she's very creepy! I mean, you must fight an ancient witch when the time collapse with a sound of bells and whispers, and you are alone in the dark space with an only light for see: The light who makes Ultimecia from face..... OMG it's too scariest O_O But I really love this creepy side of FF8 <3 I don't understand why there are not lot fan art of this form! It's fantastic! :(

I agree! It is a very creepy part of the game (I love it) and it's a shame there isn't more fan art of it. You did a good job of painting something that brings out those feelings. 

Oh and that tumblr post that I put up of it got a lot of attention. People really liked it! lunamanar.tumblr.com/post/1312… Thought you'd want to know. =)
