Hi everyone! (:
I was recently inspired to draw Tifa Lockhart, one of my favorite Final Fantasy characters, after reading an article about her. The article stated that she was not originally part of the FF7 lineup but was decided to be created as a result of another character's death (don't want to spoil anything for those who haven't played so I won't say the character's name!).
Thinking that Tifa's main purpose in the game was to replace a previous character really struck me, thus I decided to paint her as my next fan art.
This digital painting took FOREVER, about 2 days.
I think I had around 150 layers by the time of completion?
Made in CS5.
