...because it's Mintywolf's birthday!

and then I did another thing, because the first thing was coming out awful!

And on the second thing, I used onionskinning and still screwed up an arm, but at least this is kinda sorta what was in my head!


Lulu + Yuna: Sin's Return
by ~auronlu on deviantART

I really REALLY really wish I hadn't lost my art skills. I have an image in my head, but it won't come out. And arthritis means I can't do much at a time, which is one reason I got out of the habit. BUT I WANT TO DRAW THIS THING DAMMIT.

(I was initially trying to draw Yuna arriving in Besaid, getting her first glimpse of goth girl standing aloof from everyone else and watching her.)

i keep looking up twelve year old and seven year old girls on image search, trying to find art references, and being paranoid that someone's going to think I'm an awful person. :(

They're 13 and 8 in the picture above. Poor Yuna; it must've upset her more than anyone else in Spira when Sin came back.

I appreciate the thing you made! Especially since I know that doing art is difficult for you.

And yes that would be hard on poor Yuna. Even at that age she'd know that it meant that the reprieve bought by her father's life was coming to an end, that his Calm didn't last, and Spira would revert to just the way it was before he died. Except that he wouldn't be there. :(

The scene you were originally going to draw actually sounds very similar to how I had planned for them to meet in Guardian - after arriving in Besaid, Yuna sees Lulu sitting by herself looking gloomy (and decides, for some reason, to approach her). But then my timeline got blendered.

Hahaha I am also sometimes afraid that Big Brother or whoever is tracking my google image search and it makes me afraid to look for refs without seeming like a huge creeper. I really should use them more often. I just looked up height and weight tables for children and tried to work from that. But I have a bad sense of proportion and I'm pretty sure that I've been giving Yuna the actual dimensions of a four-year-old this whole time.

Anyway thank you! :) *hugs*

I don't think anyone is going to think you are an awful person for looking for pictures of children. I can think of lots of perfectly innocent reasons why someone would need one (mostly having to do with art or advertising).

Conversely, I get a perverse pleasure out of searching for horrible things while on my University's internet. I figure if I ever have to justify it, I just say it's for work. It always is, anyway.

Last time it occurred to me, I was looking for images of bondage in advertising. Some pretty awful things came up!

Very nice - I love it a lot. Compared to what -I- can do art-wise, it's fantastic!
