tifa lockhart. by vmbui tifa lockhart. by vmbui
Second fanart piece ever, ever, ever. :) Here's one of my favourites.

This was something of a speedpaint several nights ago, in preparation for Manifest. I've been really sick & I was in a rush, so I couldn't spend much time on it. I was going to polish it up later on but I'm actually quite fond of the way it turned out -- loose and rough.

So I think I'll just leave it. :bucktooth:

Btw, she's wearing high waisted shorts with zips on both sides. Cos I've a fetish for designing outfits.

Check out my blog for an animation of my painting process. :) (And other sketches/stuff.)

______
Tools: Wacom Intuos2 Tablet, Paint Tool SAI & Adobe Photoshop CS3.
Texture: `cloaks
Character: Tifa Lockhart (& Final Fantasy VII) Square Enix

Now that's the Tifa I felt at certain points during the game, somewhat darker and grittier than people ever really make her in most fanart, and they draw her so skinny at times, Tifa should look tough. Considering everything Tifa's lost in her life and that she fights enemies with her fists and feet, this is pretty accurate to how I picture her. Yeah she's got the whole be strong and pretend everything is fine thing going on but Tifa's got a bit of darkness and pain in her too and I wish I saw more of that in art of her.

The best part of this fanart is composition, that's all a speedpaint needs. :)

Love the richness of the colours (especially the red in the gloves, boots and blood) and love the style, really adds a fluidity to her hair, and just a general energy to the piece. And her expression is priceless...
