I drew this yesterday for the WiB challenge. Once again, this was drawn with pencil and paper with a few alterations after scanning it to the computer. It took approximately 9 hours to draw and about four additional hours adjusting some of the colors and details on the computer.

As for the picture itself, I just wanted to try something new. I decided to do a family picture this time. I'm not very good at it but I like drawing kids, so I gave it a shot. I think I drew him a little to small but I didn't notice until after I already started coloring. Hopefully it isn't to noticeable. As for his name, he doesn't really have one. I like the idea of Storm, but you can call him whatever you want.

There are close to 100 submissions, so I wanted to make at least one more picture for it. This one actually took quite a few hours to draw. I couldn't seem to get the lines and detail right and I kept redoing everything. I'm not completely happy with it, but I think it's good enough. It's better than my last picture, at least.

I hope everyone likes it and I wish everyone else good luck with completeing their submissions.

I love this, but I think what I love the most is kind of an echo of what Twin-Lance said, and that is Squall's expression--the way he is so completely focused on Rinoa, and how peaceful he looks.

How do you possibly do things this quickly??? :shocked:

Okay, after my shock that anyone can do things in one day, truly amazes me but, putting that aside, thank you so much. I love it! The whole family concept is do cute (although, I know, Squall anywhere in the vicinity of the word cute is a bad idea.)

I adore how they look happy; it’s more a feeling of content? I think that better describes it. Basically they’re back where the both belong (or technically all three) they’re home. (okay, I’d say four because I don’t to leave out poor Angelo, she was greatly ignored during this challenge. She demands dog treats in compensation.) Sorry, I wish I wouldn't get so sidetracked. :ashamed:

Honestly, I love this piece, the baby, Squall, Rinoa – they all fit together as a family here perfectly. Excellent job… not only on this piece, but for all three of your submissions. You did an amazing job (and again, one day. HOW????) thank you so much for the support. I’m so glad the community came together – it truly was something that we won’t forget. ;)

I wish I could draw Angelo better, otherwise I would've included her somewhere. I think I can draw them so quickly because, before I stopped drawing for awhile, I drew something almost everyday. A lot of them being of FF8's main cast. Especially during the holidays, where I always draw the FF8 characters in the current holiday's scheme. I drew them so much that I can have the lines done in a few hours. Colors are the hard part, taking longer than anything else. I'm glad you like my pictures, as well as everyone else. Thankyou.

Simply beautiful family portrait. I think the baby should have been a bit bigger, though, but that's just me. So happy to see them happy, anyway. ^^

Yes, the baby is definitely to small. I didn't notice until it was to late though. I was wondering if someone would notice it or not.

Now this is the kind of facial expression Squall should always have when Rinoa is near. This is so sweet.
