FFVII-Invisible by arvalis FFVII-Invisible by arvalis
I havent finished a picture of Tifa since 05, search my scraps to find it. Anyways, i wanted to show a weaker, more tender side of Tifa. Getting passed over for some chick in a stupid pink dress has gotta hurt right? I took away the ribbon, add more of an element of loneliness to the piece. I hope you guys dig it, i had fun with this one.

Not only being passed over for some chick in a stupid pink dress, but passed over for a DEAD chick in a stupid pink dress.

Ah Tifa, I will love you forever. Do you think she will stumble over her shoe laces?

I like how you fused the AC and Game versions. Kudos!
chrislea Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2011
I like your portrayal of Tifa. Everyone gets so caught up in the scene of Aerith praying, they forget that it was Tifa who had the gentler personality of the two.

Very nice, I have always loved how you painted. =)

You did a really good job in catching the hurt that Tifa was going through--Cloud is cool, but he focuses a lot of what he feels.

Until now Tifa still remains my favourite FF girl, for many reasons. The in-depth of her character's one of them, and you portrayed it nicely.

Wow, great! I love your art!! Will you draw Aeris also?? I like her sooo much @__@
Metatio Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2010

No love for Tifa. She need to drop that emo Cloud. xD
ChibiJenova Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2009
Very nice! Awwwwww, Tifa looks so lonely.
SassyLilPanda Featured By Owner May 16, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Nice work with Tifa. ^^ You should draw Aerith.
midgarelite Featured By Owner May 5, 2009  Student Filmographer
I have to say that these are all really, good nice job.
NaughtyBoy83 Featured By Owner May 3, 2009
Lovely work, i do like her but Aeris more, So which one do you like better?
ThexInsanexPyro Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2009
I love how Tifa looks so alone and distant, there's so much detail.

Really nice work!
DarkMage83 Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2009
Awesome work! :)

Very detailed.

The sentiment gets transmitted easily.

Great coloring.

The only thing that could hurt worse than getting passed up by a stupid girl in a pink dress is...getting passed up by a DEAD girl in a stupid pink dress lol.
But in all seriousness, you wanted to show a tender side to Tifa? You completely achieved that goal! :clap: :clap: :clap:
Xiao-Fury Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
HA! QFT (Quoted for truth)
EmberFalcon Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2009
exactly :nod:

Thanks so much, i really liked the wy this one turned out =D
yuesbee Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2009
i'm a huge fan of your work. i'm loving this piece. How do you do your shadows and highlights? they always look awesome
arvalis Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2009
What do you mean, i kinda just paint in my shadows and hilights until they look right to me ;p
MakoServitor Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Wow. Just wow. That is fantastic; the pose, the expression, everything. And may I say, THANK YOU for doing a serious piece with Tifa as a strong female character instead of the cheap whore look a lot of artists give her. Great job.
Erix19 Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2009  Hobbyist Writer
The best part about Tifa was the fact she and Aerith didn't fight over Cloud. They were very good friends. I like them both about equal. I live tough girls like Tifa and very sweet, gentle girls like Aerith. They are the best examples of how girls should be in my opinion.
OspreySoul Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2009  Student Digital Artist
Wow. Nice job on this. You did a great job bringing out the loneliness in her expression, with a little bit of aggression, too. You also did awesome work on the overall anatomy. The rest of her is balanced enough so her chest doesn't look abnormal (like I've seen in other pictures). The shading and the colors are beautifully blended and very natural, along with the ribbons and folds.
Hopefully, Cloud isn't dumb enough to forget Tifa even after he picked thing.

Cool, I like the whole presentation of the picture.

This is quite possibly the lovliest Tifa I've ever laid my eyes on!! >_<
Awesome awesome awesome work :dance:
AkaiSoul Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2009
One of the best portrayings of Tifa I've ever seen =D

Man, her is skin is just awesome. Especially in the legs, you did a really incredible job.

Love the feeling of this pic.
Mad-Maxx Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2009
nice she looks a little cold and lonely
Night-mist Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
=/ she rly looks so sad D:!! poor tifa! D< *kick cloud where hurts* D: cloud is an emo!!!! aerith sucks ¬w¬
BlazingGanondorf Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2009  Student Digital Artist
Amazing work. You can feel the loneliness coming off her.
WarriorOfPurgatory Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2009
I like how you changed it back to her original hairstyle. I prefer kickass females like Tifa anyways.
Cloud, Tifa and the kids got to be a 'family' in the end so there's nothing to be sad about methinks. :)
