Ok. We're outta here. by ronin-ai Ok. We're outta here. by ronin-ai
Squall's famously low tolerance for social gatherings is on full display as he decides to end their wedding reception early. Don't think Rinoa's about to complain though...

despite a high level of frustration with Rinoa's facial features (I like staring at GUYS more...) I think it SORTA looks like her.. a little?

anyway, the usual stuff: pencils and paper. acid free of course, and THIS time, I allowed enough border to trim so I could scan with a LITTLE less anxiety. I also used paint to erase some smudges (and discovered that I really, REALLY hate my mouse!).

By the way, the story that inspired this drawing is "On Angel's Wings" [link]

I absolutely liked this one!! The smothered shading effect on her dress is beautiful! Brings her some angelical stuff and also contrasts with Squall's uniform, i think its a nice reminder of their opposite personalities... hehehe

Thanks, this turned out far better than I'd thought it would. the pose was a really difficult one to get right.

Love this.  I actually wanted to do this in my wedding party, like in "On Angel Wings"

(It would be cool if GFs appeared too, but oh wel XD)

this is a nice picture. Rinoa and Squall is such a sweet couple. i read every single of your Final Fantasy 8 fanfics and they are really good in fact i had few of your fanfics favorited. the fics i favorited are "On Angel Wings", "Mission Zero", "Red Skies", "Moonbeams and Dragon Wings", and "What Happens in Esthar" in which i'm currently waiting patiently for an update from you along with "Bells of Freedom" and "Queen of Ice and Fire". also i have you as one of my favorite authors to show how much i love your fanfics. back onto this drawing i can totally imagine Squall carrying Rinoa like that after the wedding scene during ch 15 of "On Angel Wings"

How cool! Thank you, I really appreciate that. That was a fun scene to write, honestly. of course, the entire fic was alot of fun for the most part. I've got a couple of chapters pending, one each for queen and bells. so, be patient and more stuff will come.

You know, you really do draw men well, or one man… technically I guess. :)
In all three of your pictures, that has been the main common denominator was how you excelled at the male form. I’m not saying anything against females, not in the least; I just notice how naturally you take to men. (…well THAT was an open ended comment, again spoken with mucho love.) I know this one doesn’t have the muscle tones like the last, because he’s wearing clothes this time. (had to say that *snicker*I know he was wearing some last picture, but….)

The shading on the belt is amazing, along with the legs; again there is something about the way you shade is amazing. I also like Rinoa, the lace/eyelet lining the hem of the dress, carried over to her sleeves. I also love her hair up; I think there should be far more pictures with her hair off her face, I think with her facial structure (and allowing for age/maturity) I think it would be quite becoming of her to have an up-do. I’m gathering those are small roses/flowers lining her bun, but love the simplicity in her look; it exudes an air of elegance. With him wearing his dress uniform, I’m glad you went that way.

Guess that’s it, again I like the small things (glad this comment wasn’t on the shower picture *cough*) his belt, the boots, the hair piece – it’s those details and the beautiful shading that make the piece as a whole.

Thank you again. I’ll move on to fanfiction later today, I’ll leave you feedback on the two stories I’m behind there, but just wanted to say thank you again. Thank you for helping with the DeviantArt aspect. It was simply too much for one person to handle it all and you did an awesome job. I’ll say it again, please think about doing a community here; we’ve got a great core group going and I’d love to have a place where I could trust that maybe I could get my work in… that is if I get a tad better. I was thinking of doing a Chocobo/Mog community. Yes, don’t ask. Lucky would be the star of his own com, and we could work together on getting people/affiliates and such.

You’ve been amazing help. I’m looking forward to our future – from writing our first AUs to finishing up open stories. I remember reading your works 12 years ago on a random blog. It’s hard to believe we’d be friends – and darn it, I still want to head to Arizona. We are so doing coffee in person. :hooray::coffeecup: :coffeemachine: :coffeecup: :cowboy:

You bet. and Del Taco, don't forget.

Thanks for your comments. and yeah..i guess you can tell i kinda like men, right?

I'm considering doing "pin up" type shots of all the ff8 guys (including Nida). dunno when i'll get to it though. Maybe when i find some reference photos that i like..

I would be all in favor of pin-of shots of the men of FFVIII. Or really, a full calendar. I would totally buy one of those

Got one in progress for Squall, based on "what happens in Esthar.." and when that's done, I'll probably do Irvine next. Kinda interested in doing...er...DRAWING.. a sexy cowboy. After that I don't know... Zell? Nida? I guess I'll have to include Seifer too (He'll feel left out otherwise..).

Haha definitely to Seifer! And Laguna! (Just... Don't tell Squall...)

I should probably stop before I start breaking out the $1 bills...

This is fantastic. I like the changes you made, subtle but improves this piece so much. Her eyes especially.
I also love the detail on Squall's trousers, the way it's tucked into the boots. Yep, I notice the weirdest things. Love the dress too! Great work.

Love the expressions on both of their faces and the detail of the shading. And it does look like Rinoa :)

Nice job!
