Just gorgeous! I really this more flowery interpretation of the Balambian environment. By the way, is this supposed to be near the Fire Cavern (due to the rocks) or is it the path to Balamb?

Hey thanks for the encouraging comments! It's been such a long time I can't remember what I intended for this to be, but now that you mentioned it, a lookout from Fire Cavern seems very appropriate. Sorry for the late reply, I disappeared for a while. XD

No problem, as long as you reply eventually. :P

Besides, it's not like the only person who disappears for long stretches of time. Hell, I've technically had my account for over a decade but I've only been regularly posting stuff since last October pretty much.

This is stunning! You did an exceptional job on the colors, and I love how Balamb Garden is rainbow-colored in the sunlight.:wow: I could look at this for hours. Soooooooo good!:iconsparkleeyesplz:

Really awesome... I've been wondering why the world map BGM is called Blue Field while the field is not blue... And I like all these beautiful blue flowers in your artwork~~

I wonder the same thing. Regardless, the song Blue Field remains my most loved world map theme. It feels so very different from all the other FF's.

I don't think I've ever seen a fanart of Balamb Garden and this one is pretty much perfect. I love the colors!

Got one of my computers up and running... almost decently. (gags as it crawls along like the snail it is... then pats it mercifully, recalling that she did indeed buy this antiquity back in '02)

BTW, have you heard the full orchestral version of 'Blue Fields'? Hoooooooly smokes is it beautiful!

Hey, have you note ~helenovision your submissions for the Art Jam? I have yet to see them in her Art Jam collection folder. By the way, in case you weren't informed, the deadline has been pushed back to the end of this month. :nod:

Yes I have. In fact, as I was working on this, my playlist consisted of three songs, each a version of Blue Fields. Just now I added the whole FF8 OST to that list, then after 10 minutes of listening I went "DAMNIT I CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE!!! I GOTTA INSTALL FFVIII NOW!!!" D:

Yep. Notice the deadline was pushed. She was waiting for me to finish the entire set before adding them in the collection. :)

Where are the monsters? :noes: the random battles? :noes:

Well... It's a good thing they are not here. Blue fields is a calming melody, and your scenery is just the same :) good job.

They never show themselves on the field anyway. They're just hiding, waiting to pound on you. D:

Yes I like that song very much. Not only it's good, I think it's the most fitting song for a world map theme. It has this... far away, endless feel to it. I never feel tired of running from place to place in FFVIII partly because of the song. XD
