Where I Belong- WiB Challenge by Ragnawing Where I Belong- WiB Challenge by Ragnawing
I'm submitting this for the Where I Belong Challenge.

Technically I drew it about three years ago. But when I heard about the challenge, I went back and fixed it up a bit. The changes aren't really all that noticable, aside from the added background and a few minor added details.

I had originally drawn it with pencils, colored pencils and paper. When we got a scanner, I had put it on the computer and fixed the coloring and added in some small fixes. Much like what I did for the challenge. Also, I can't use shading at all, so there is none. Hopefully it doesn't ruin the picture.

Final Fantasy 8 helped make me the person I am today. It also gave me a love of trains, which I didn't have before. It's because of FF8 that I learned to appreciate all that I'm lucky enough to have, while I have it. FF8 means a lot to me and it has since the first time I even heard about it. I'm glad to know that there are people out there who feel the same way that I do about it.

I hope everyone enjoys my submission, and good luck to everyone else.

I think I commented on the first version you ever posted of this, but just to say it again--this is so pretty! Myself and some of the friends I cosplay with did a Renaissance-inspired group from VIII, so I just love seeing Squall in a cape. I also really, really love Rinoa's dress here--I would love to cosplay that sometime!

Aww, so cute. :3

Now I imagine Squall and Rinoa having their "second dance" in the middle of an open meadow. x3

So, so beautiful. Sigh! A very romantic scene!

Truly beautiful. Love the use of colours and I think the night sky is just perfect with the scene. Well done. :)

Beautiful outfits, and I like how the background makes the link between the flower-field where Rinoa finds Squall and the starlit sky of their first encounter.

FF VIII bring back many fond memories :aww:

Wow, this is really good! I like their outfits. On a less superficial aspect, I like the expressions on both of their faces, I can definitely feel the love. :)

Thank you, I'm glad that you like it. The challenge was the perfect excuse that I needed in order to finish it.

Love it! Great job. I love the cape aspect - with both of Squall and Rinoa having something flowing in the night; it brings a sense of balance to the piece. And love that you added the 'wings' bringing one of the FFVIII logos into along with one of ours. It's great!
