Final Fantasy 7: Aerith


This is the moment I feel is most important to Aerith because after death is when she really becomes a stronger character. If you've read the books Square Enix put out On the Way to a Smile, Aerith becomes a lot stronger after her death, Aerith isn't human so she doesn't die like others and be absorbed into the life stream, she walk amoung the dead like an Angel? idk. Despite all this I still like Tifa and Yuffie more as characters.
The other moment I thought was stong for her is when she helped her mother escape Hojo from Shinra.

Next; Sephiroth.

this is so beautiful its a masterpiece and belongs on display in an art gallery

Final Fantasy VII holds a special significance in my life as the pivotal point of my focus as an artist. The game inspired me to greater heights artistically and continues to be a reminder of the things I want to achieve. That being said, this moment in particular really speaks to me, as it was the first time any game had made me cry. So this amazing work brings me back to that younger me and stirs anew those feelings of sadness, inspiration, and the desire to create my own story that can also inspire and emotionally move others. Thank you!

Magnificent in vision and execution. Even the lotus reference is admirable - the perfect flower that blossoms through the hazy water from the very mundane mud. The expression of the sweetest surrender... this artwork will live on in my heart for a long time to come.
