Kuja FFIX by ra-sha Kuja FFIX by ra-sha
I had planed to do a serious FF9 fanart for a while now, but did not start on it until 3 days ago when the idea for this picture hit me out of the blue.

Unfortunately I don't have much patience and did not finnish it.

I had fun drawing Kuja (looks too girly, even for him, I know) but the background was pure torture.
Everything was fine until I started drawing Iifas tree, soon afterwards I felt like crying... it just didn't work, so after about 4 hours of trying to draw this tree and spending another 5 or 6 hours on the rest of the background, I finally gave up and admitted defeat.

I think I'll finnish it sometime though...I've put too much work into it to leave it like this, but for now I need a break ^^

FF9 in cd2 is Kuja vs Brane and Bahamut in Iifa tree. Kuja have the battle win. I am so happy!

I love it ~

And the Iifa Tree has a tendency to send people into fits of rage and frustration, so don't feel bad! :D

Its a nice piece, so what if Kuja looks a little girly, does it matter. I thought he was supposed to be like that anyway. Background is great and the hair is good. How do you manage to do hair like that. I try but it never goes right. All in all a good picture :)

I really love it. Somehow he seems as if he wanted to tell us "come with me, I'll show you a better world". I love his hair. Good job!

Oh, wow that's so beautiful. You did an amazing job on the Iifa tree, but I know how you feel that thing is so evil to draw! >.< Of course I could put a liiiittle more time and effort into it, but still XD

Kuja is just a wicked character. He looked far too gentle, even in the game. o.o

Wonderful portrayal of him here though. ^^
