first of all, A confession.  I printed the Raine/Laguna card. how could I not? Look how cute that is! So I have two different aces of cups.  I regret nothing. It came down to which I liked better and no matter how I tried I couldn’t choose.  The Zell/library girl one was an attempt to get Zell in somewhere else, but I had to HEAVILY edit that pic to get it to fit on the card, and I wasn’t happy with that.  Plus I had two other perfectly adorable versions.

yeah, I printed this one too.  I can’t choose between Rinoa x Squall and Laguna x Raine, I just can’t do it.

This was an alternate version I made just to make sure I had a choice depending on which characters I felt needed more representation.  No dramatic debates here.

the suit of Cups for my Final Fantasy Tarot deck.

I had a LOT of trouble with this suit for some reason, even though it’s my favorite suit and my favorite Final Fantasy.  I don’t know what the deal was, I just couldn’t make anything fit.  I fought with it a long time.  Nearly rearranged which Final Fantasy went with which suit several times because of this. The only one that was easy was the ten, because that artwork of Selphie and Irvin in wedding clothes is probably my all time favorite FFVIII artwork , even though they’re not my favorite couple in the game.  But I got it in the end.  However, I also had a really hard time sourcing some of this art, so I’m missing quite a few.  Please let me know if you know where they came from.

Maybe I will redo this one day and make a proper background and color it nicely and clean up the sketch. Hmmmm we’ll see!


And just like that Squall has a tiny family(and a uniform!)
