Eyes on Me

 "Eyes on Me"
(Final Fantasy VIII / Original)

The key illustration for the invitations to our wedding. It was difficult capturing just the right emotion for us, but in the end, I believe turned out almost exactly as planned. I was aiming toward a more watercolor-look with the colors... While I think it could have been better, I don't feel it was a failed attempt. And, yes, my fiance and I are getting married dressed as Rinoa and Squall, respectively, as it's our favorite love story from our favorite Final Fantasy game.

(Original character for commission)

There's not a lot I can say about the character, himself, since this is an OC by the client (and what little I know, I'm bound to an NDA).
Like with Peer-to-Peer, this was another very experimental commission, where I tried my hand at weather effects. While painstaking in it's execution, the result is actually quite satisfying, and making sure everything was "flowing" in the same direction challenged me quite a bit.
