I just got an idea for this fanart a couple days ago and decided to put it down where everyone else can see it. It's pretty much the first time I drew from my head and I'm happy with the results. It's not exactly like I imagined, but I think I got it as close as I can at this point. I used Photoshop and a tablet on everything and it took me about a few hours+ to complete. Ok well, here she is. My favorite character from FFIX, Freya Crescent.

Ayla 2004-12-18 15:54:08 thanks yusuke. yeah i was thining about including the eye myself. i thought it would be ok if i left it out 'cause her hair is far enough over to cover it.. but ill try it and see. thanks for the good critiques. =)
TheDarkHell 2004-12-18 23:46:55 nice i still can see its not a super solid line art but i know (because i still suck at it) how hard it is to draw whit a tablet well keep them comming ^^
Ayla 2004-12-19 02:09:43 thanks you too. ^^ and darkhell: its actually cause i was too lazy and just felt like leaving the sketchy lines. =)
Deetris 2004-12-19 20:22:14 the scetchy lines look good is this done by mouse, or do you have one of those drawing tablets?
AIKUZA 2004-12-19 20:50:47 Hey that's really cool Ayla ;). It's actually my first fanart I've ever seen of Freya :P. Didn't expect it to look like this. It's done really well. I have a FFXI poster hanging in my room. And she looks really like it. Just some things are different. Like her nose and headshape. Than again, she is a difficult character to draw. For crits; maybe some more shading and highlights. And some raindrops on her clothing. ^^
Ayla 2004-12-20 00:05:47 deetris: pen tablet. i suck bootay with the mouse ^^ aikuza: thanks aikuz! ^^ the head was the stuff i was having the most trouble with. anyways thanks for the critiques. =)
AIKUZA 2004-12-20 00:48:39 I think the best way to draw Freya is to begin with her hat. And after that, add her face and ears. What I meant about her face is, that it's skinnier in shape. And her eyes are seen a bit. ( I really didn't knew that either^^:: it's the fact that I'm looking at the original art of it on my wall right now ^^;;;;;;). but you did this by head, like you told me so, so I'll forgive that ;). Just find it bad that Freya's background part in FFXI was a bit short. And oooooOOoo I hated that midisong in her birthvillage!!! >:D
Ayla 2004-12-20 02:53:33 lol thanks again aikuz. from what i did play of FFIX (and it was more than three fourths of it..) she did have a very small role.. ?.?;; which sucks. i liked her at the end of disc 1 in buremicia and fighting beatrix thats when i grew to love her. then id freak out whenever she would show up and id kick ass with her. ^.~ and i totally agree with you.. the midi song... very repetative... very annoying.. ^^;;
Deetris 2004-12-20 10:25:19 I want one to! Good God I know what to ask for chrstmas all of a sudden ^^. I just foregot that I wanted one for so long! :P thanx!
Ayla 2004-12-20 11:33:34 hope you get one deetris. ^^

Should be a topic 'Doom' xD Anyway random brainfarts. Again. around 5 hours, photoshop cs. Not too happy with it. Lacks composition, depth and well, stuff. What I do like is the fire-spewing rock over there ^^

The mysterious Count is a cross between The Count Dracula and The Count of Monte Cristo. Both characters were shrouded in mystery & fueled by vengeance.

This started off as a quick, easy draw but it was a challenge to render in ink! I had to start over thrice until I finally got the face right!
