I think I’ve already established the fact that Tifa is my favorite Final Fantasy VII character. There’s nothing wrong with Aeris, and it was a bit of a surprise that she got killed in FFVII, but if you asked me to try to describe her, there’s only so much I could say about her. That’s how memorable she was.
Okay, okay. That’s a little harsh. It has been a while since I last played FFVII. Aeris does have a nice, demure, motherly quality about her. She wasn’t the strongest character (and by that I mean she didn’t serve that big of a purpose in the story), but it did strengthen the emotional content of the game.
Okay, I will shut up now. I know Aeris is loved by many. I’m sorry.
As for the drawing, I did not intend for the fan art to turn out as “dark” as it is. I probably shouldn’t have added as much shadowing on her face as I did. I was also trying to make her smile, but Aeris just wouldn’t smile for me. How very philosophical.
