It's FanArt Friday! Welcome to another edition of Final Fantasy Fan Art Showcase of the Week, where we show the best of the best from DeviantArt! Last week's artwork (http://home.eyesonff.com/content.php/3383-FanArt-Friday!-Final-Fantasy-Fan-Art-Showcase-of-the-Week-96) had some incredible quality on display, and this week we'll see a new set of artists get a chance to show off their skills. But you're not here for the text... let's get on with the art!

What better way to kick off this week's FanArt Friday than with an epic Final Fantasy VII image? Especially with my fave character, Tifa, in the starring role. If you aren't aware, I'm actually in the midst of posting Final Fantasy VII: Moments at EoFF - it's a project where the entire story of Final Fantasy VII is told in the form of 200 pieces of art by over 100 artists. I'm just kicking myself that I didn't spot JohnnySegura3rd earlier, or I'd definitely have invited him to take part! Still, hopefully this is a bit of compensation - the headline art piece in this week's showcase!

I love Final Fantasy V, and I make no secret of it. As far as I'm concerned, it's the most underrated game in the Final Fantasy series! Glad to see a few artists are still giving it some love, and this piece is created through a rather rare style for the weekly Showcase. I couldn't help but book a spot for this beautifully displayed and carefully crafted image. Great work, clest!

Do you play Final Fantasy XIV? If so, you might want to check out Kimmymanga's artwork - she does commissions and as you can see by this quite incredible piece, she does them amazingly. That has to be one of the more awesome character commission pictures I have seen in the history of Eorzea. I wonder if I could get her to do one of Mimidoa... probably my fave NPC in FFXIV!

If topless Basch didn't do it for you a few weeks ago, and Setzer doesn't do it for you now... I'm just going to assume you don't appreciate handsome men. Gabriela has masterfully captured the player in this digital piece. She actually created this artwork for a Brazilian Final Fantasy group (https://www.facebook.com/ffcollabbr?fref=photo), which, after a quick sneak through their photos, has some epic creations that are well worth checking out!

Man, I am envrying these two right now. It's 1:25am and I'm only around halfway through posting these 213 works of art, and these guys are already chillin' out, maxin', relaxin' all cool. I imagine that's what I'll be like at around 5am. I better not look at this art too long, it's making me so relaxed, it just has that really beautiful, warm feel to it. Nice work, Leahtaur!

It's our first ever genderbending Cosplay of the Week! This beautiful Costa Rica resident was actually up against some very, very tough competition for Cosplay of the Week - possibly one of the best weeks we've ever had in terms of quantity of quality - but the "audience test" I put the art through put MolecularAgatha first and

You know, I'm not 100% sure, but I think so... xD I just said Lala because of the gigantic weapon size compared to the character. xD When artistic licence comes in, it's hard to judge for sure between Lala and Hyur!

Yeah I think the legs are little too long for a Lala, personally!

I think my favourite is the pixel art.

The pixel art and the cosplay are extremely well done

12-07-2014, 08:39 AM
Yeah, I love that Krile.

The Setzer is certainly well done, but it I just keep seeing young Geoffrey Rush, and the hair is more gray than white. /nitpick

I agree with the others about the pixel art. There's not enough Krile love out there, so it's nice to see her get such a nice piece of artwork.

12-10-2014, 01:16 AM
Wow. Setzer. I want to draw like that.

12-10-2014, 01:35 AM
That pixel art is go great! So rare to see pixel art these days.

Tifa looks like she's going to mess some trout up.
