Can't Stop Fallin' in Love
New Fan Art
Summoner and Leviathan, Final Fantasy Tactics
Comments: What can I say? I love to summon. Leviathan has
been one of my personal favorites, since FF7. Anyway, I tried to give this
drawing a good sense of motion, what with Leviathan's rolling curves and the
slanted edge of the dark water against the white of the paper. For all my
misgivings about not doing a detailed pencil sketch first, I think it turned

Momo, Breath of Fire 3
Comments: You know how you can camp in BofF III? I was thinking of what it would be like in camp and decided to do a picture of Momo with her hair down (she has to at some point, right?). I think this would be right before she goes to sleep. Hair loose, no glasses, I guess that's a nightie....... just don't ask why she's still wearing the hat (oh wait- it's Momo. She's absent minded. This works....). This was one of my first experiments in pen in a loooOOOooong time so it not exactly the way I wanted it to be, but.........

Auron, Final Fantasy 10
Comments: I tried hard to come close to the real one ^ ^i
hope you people like it;) wish me luck next time :)
Beatrix, Final Fantasy IX
Comments: She's one of those character that you know you
just HAVE to draw sometime ^_^ And yes, I know her sword looks a bit
different here... that's because I couldn't find any good reference pictures
of it. =P Drawn in plain 2B pencils, colored in Photoshop.

Cloud, Kingdom Hearts
Comments: KH Cloud is just too slick
Freya, Final Fantasy IX
Comments: Freija as a dancer. If any of you remember the old FF IX concept art from
way back when, then you remember Square originally planned to use the Job
system in the game. This picture was partially inspired by the idea of how
Freija might look in a dancer costume. I was inspired by some other fanart
that I've seen to work Freija's normal outfit into the design and wound up
with a modified version of the Cleyran maiden's dress. I really had no idea
what to do for a background, and didn't want to wind up adding one as an
afterthought, so I decided to try and make it look like something out of the
FF IX art book using the two other Freija pictures I'd done as uncoloured
sketches. Unfortunately I didn't have access to the .PSD of 'JUMP!', so I
quickly sketched up a rear costume view like one of the many in the actual
art book, that's just supposed to be the orange shirt and pants she wears
underneath her red coat.

Ghaleon, Dyne, Magic Emperor, Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete
Comments: I think this is my first fanart I've really ever done, and probably my fourth or so pic I've ever done on the computer. It's a picture of young Ghaleon, young Dyne, and the Magic Emperor. People who've played the game will understand the connection between the three. I drew it first with pencil, then scanned it in, and did all the rest in Photoshop. I've always been a fan of Dyne and Ghaleon, and I really wish more was given on their backstories. Oh well, maybe in Lunar 3? ^^;
Lucca, Chrono Trigger
Comments: For my fourth piece on Lucca, I decide to go with a variety to different angles to show in a more dynamic style. Hope you guys approve, and I hope you could let me know whether I'm improving on my penciling skills. Well, enjoy!
Katt, Ryu, and Rand, Breath of Fire II
Comments: I did this piece because I
decided that there wasn't enough Breath of Fire fanart
coming through these days, and with the GBA rerelease
of BOF2 I couldn't resist. I drew the picture in
pencil, then I scanned it and colored it in photoshop.
It took me a day or so to do. I liked how it turned
out with the exception of my boy Ryu in the
background. I think he could have turned out much
better. But all things considered I like it. If you
have a critique or any questions just drop me a line!

Comments: I love this game. I like drawing Squall, this is
just one of serries drawing for my dojinshi. I like put him in black. All
done in watercolour & Black ink.
