VANILLE from FINAL FANTASY XIII
I’ve never understood the hate Final Fantasy XIII gets. To me, it’s maybe my favourite Final Fantasy game as I put in well over 100 hours. Vanille was without doubt my favourite character in FFXIII, just cos of the way she’s always skipping around everywhere without a care in the world lol This drawing took me 3 days to finish, the hair and necklaces turned out to be a bit of a challenge, but I’m pretty happy with how she turned out!
My goal is to draw all of the Final Fantasy XIII, XIII-2 and Lightning Returns female characters. So far, I’ve managed this one of Vanille, and her partner in crime Fang :) I will also redraw Vanille, seeing as she’s my favourite, I want to create a drawing of her with darker tones.

“I’m a massive daydreamer. I’m constantly lost within my own fantasies and my own thoughts personally, and I think maybe that is sort of represented in what we do for a living, the fact that we make believe everything and we escape into these other characters for a living.” – Emily Browning
