FFVIII: Rinoa x Squall by koloromuj FFVIII: Rinoa x Squall by koloromuj
So i sketched this in 2008 and painted in 2009 for Anime North, LOL it took ages and cos it's characters i love love so i try to make it as clean as possible ~ and thats also why i didnt wanna paint it for so long :P

well it's the angelic Rinoa flying to Squall as he reaches out his hand for her. i still think Rinoa is the prettiest char in FF series!

Oh and to add, these guys are the reason i wanted to work in Game/Animation industry or else i probably woulda ended up doing fashion design~

You've been featured on my page =D (Big Grin) If that's not okay, just let me know and I will remove it!

Absolutely amazing. The colors are so vibrant, and love both versions. The one aspect that stands out the most to me, is Squall's expression. The way he's looking back at her, I'm simply drawn to it. Honestly, there is a concern/love that you've managed to incorporate into the piece.

Stunning...just stunning. :love:

I LOVE this picture. It has got to be my favorite picture of Rinoa and Squall, fan art or otherwise... It is so so beautiful. I had randomly found it on a site (I don't remember what) like two years ago and had it as my phone background. Seriously... so beautiful!!!!

this picture is so pretty. Rinoa is so lucky to be with Squall who is such a hottie. still they are my all time favorite pairing of the Final Fantasy series Selphie and Irvine comes in close second and Cloud and Tifa in third.

Junction Magic = 255
Junction Speed = 120
Offensive Magic at her disposal = Meteor only
Limit Break = Angel Wings
Result = Total Carnage!

Much more reliable than Renzokuken somewhat, cause she does it automatically.

I love it. Squall looks more like Squall than the Dissidia illustration makes him look :) Your long hard work made result ^^ They should hire you to make a new illustration of Squall! :D

I can't believe you don't have any comments for this!! This is absolutely beautiful, not just with the designs and the bright colors, but you are spot-on with your character designs. I swear you could be a manga artist or something.

I just love the idea of Rinoa with wings hovering over Squall, like she's his angelic savior. Squall reaching out his hand to her is just him reassuring himself that she's always there, that she'll always be by his side. Also, love the feathers falling from the sky.

I really hope you do more with these two. I'm usually on the lookout for more art of the couple, as they're my favorite from the series. I just had to tell you how much I adored this.

This picture is amazing! I love it so much! It perfectly represents Squall and Rinoa's relationship and it captures the emotion of it so well. Keep up the good work!
the-sweet Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2011
Beautiful. At first I thought Rinoa was between time-space, because her arm looked only partway out of the sky, but I see that's just how she's holding herself up. Somehow the small and fluffy wings suit the cute expression on her face more than a huge angelic pair would.

And Squall's face...hehe, I don't know what it is, but he looks kind of flabbergasted! It's a fun expression on his always-so-serious face.

I remember watching my sister play this game, I read the lines (when they talked) of Sephie, Zell and Lugana hahah that was fine being them this is a great picture of them
