The Lion's Heart by LionRedPepper The Lion's Heart by LionRedPepper
As a big FFVIII fan ( I know it's not everyone's cup of tea) coupled by my undieing love for lions I decided to illustrate one of my favourite moments in the game:

(SPOILERS) When Ultimeccia Summons Griever, the living GF in Squall's necklace(END SPOILERS)

Maybe I'm just reading too much into it, but I always looked at this moment as a stand-up between Squall and his inner fears/trauma/personal boogieman.

In short, this is a homage to my favorite leading character in any FF so far ^_^

Whoa, this is awesome!! :iconsobeautifulplz: Really, there ain't good enough words to describe this! :iconiloveitplz:

Maybe you're not reading too much into it. I think something of the sort too, only a little bit more sophisticated. Have you ever read theories about the plot? There's a Plot Analysis guide in gamefaqs that talks a bit about the relation between Squall and Griever-- and also many things about time travel that are totally mind numbing. You should read it sometime.

It's stunning, I absolutely love the coloring.

Hmm... I never thought that much about that fight, but there's definitely something in the way you see it.

Squall is one of my favourite characters of all time. And this captures the moment in the game great. Very much a "Wait... I have to fight that?" moment.
