Ok now this one is my favorite.. I loved Vanille's character as she narrates the story and she seems to grow... This captures Vanille's innocence while showing her growing maturity. Also shows her child-like features, and sparring no detail on the clothes. An amazing drawing and i'm looking forward for more from you! I have given you 5 on originality because it I haven't seen much Final Fantasy XIII fan art on here. 5 on Technique because well you have taken something fiction and made it life-like. 5 for vision because because I love her expression, it's just so Vanille. 5 for impact because I know I'm gonna be looking at this more then once!
I love your art sooo much and it inspires me to draw realistically, even though I'm not that great at it... But anyways! I've decided to dedicate my New Vanille picture to you because you're the reason i drew that picture! I'm happy your on deviantart, because without seeing your art, I wouldn't be able to attempt anything even remotely realistic! >w<
Here is my attempt at Vanille (The picture that is dedicated to you!) : [link]
åersonally, i think you should have drawn her happier. vanille was allways cheerfull, even if she werent happy (as far as i remember. a pretty long time since i played ff13) but FREAKING AMAZING DRAWING SKILLS!!!!
It's quite obvious you are right handed because the curves on the left side of her face are liken to hand strokes, where as on the right side of her face they are more angled especially the upper eye line and the outline of the face. It makes it a wee bit unsymmetrical, cause I mean its a tiny difference. Just making you aware of that, but you have probably noticed. The details are stunning and the eyes are very clean. Very beautiful work.
