I was looking for photos of Tifa Lockhart from Final Fantasy VII, when I came across this girl Liz Katz. She’s cosplayed as Tifa before, and honestly, I think she looked perfect!! Soon as I saw this photo though, I knew I would be drawing her! It was really hard, mainly cos her face was very light and so I found it hard to pick out the details, especially as I was also experimenting with different bristol board paper around the time of this drawing, and this one was off white. I really like how she turned out tho, and I added Liz Katz to my Inspirational Models not soon after doing this drawing :)

Are you in touch with all of your darkest fantasies?
Have you created a life for yourself where you can experience them?
I have. I am fucking crazy.
But I am free.” – Lana Del Rey
