Secret Wintertime by Firnheledien Secret Wintertime by Firnheledien
Tada! The finishing lock to the whole FF8 love series! I had to do this one because the poster would look weird if only the winter panel didn't have a kiss X3

Blah blah pencil blue colour pencil and PSP7

Squall looks kind of aloof (as he should, I suppose.)

Here's the thing about the expression, and why I find it to be so well done: Rinoa's totally into it, just like in the story, but Squall is kinda' looking past her, as if there's something on his mind (always thinking to himself, isn't he?) His eyes look past her, almost like he's fighting all those demons that he deals with through most of the game. The eyes and the body represents that dichotomy that is Squall: although he is holding her, he seems to be brooding about his feelings and his philosophy.

The picture looks like she is going to drag him into the kiss, which, really, couldn't be more true to the story of the game. It really was her that opened him up to things that he'd formerly closed himself off to, and I think this picture is a perfect representation of the major themes of Rinoa and Squall's tale.

On somewhat of a related note, I was always a bit annoyed about how the only time they kiss (one would suppose) is at the very end of the final CG video, and the camera zooms out while it happens!! Seriously; comon'! If I'm gonna' pour sixty hours of my life into this thing, I wanna' see the goods! Bah!

Anyway, you have accomplished more than Squaresoft as far as that detail goes. For that, you get a :clap:
Firnheledien Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2007
Haha... thank you very much! It is a pleasure to get such a detailed comment! Haven't gotten one like this in a long time!

Well, I knew Squall was brooding and all but here I guess is after they get together at the end of the game, when he is less angsty than he was. So maybe he's just thinking about protecting her some more 8D
