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 we had a double (http://home.eyesonff.com/content.php/3444-FanArt-Friday!-Final-Fantasy-Fan-Art-Showcase-of-the-Week-102-Part-One!) whammy (http://home.eyesonff.com/content.php/3445-FanArt-Friday!-Final-Fantasy-Fan-Art-Showcase-of-the-Week-102-Part-Two!) because there was just too much to let slip by, 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!

Zirekile Falls by Skence (http://skence.deviantart.com/)

Let's kick things off with a gorgeous masterpiece that really captures the essence of Final Fantasy Tactics. The shading and colours, the stance, the beautiful waterfall, even the bridge is done just right. Skence is offering brownie points to anyone who can recognise Delita's sword... can you!? If that's not enough, Skence has been generous to us lately - go check out this equally brilliant artwork of Eiko and her Moogles (http://skence.deviantart.com/art/Eiko-and-her-moogles-505431036)!

Barret Wallace - FF7 Brainstorm Challenge by freakyfir (http://freakyfir.deviantart.com)

Recently we've seen reimaginings of Cloud and Midgar, and this time the FFVII redesign treatment goes to Barret Wallace, and I love it! I get all kinds of ideas of what inspired Singapore artist freakyfir to come up with this one - for me, it has touches of Ghostbusters, Dragonball Z and even Team Fortress 2 for some reason which is weird because I've never even played that game... either way, this look is excellent and I applaud Muhammad for his efforts, I'd love to see more like this!

Sephiroth - Destroyer by Midorisa (http://midorisa.deviantart.com)

Midoris is no stranger to EoFF's Showcase of the Week - you may recognise the general style and shape of this excellent Sephiroth artwork. It was actually back in October when her Kuja piece rocked our world (http://home.eyesonff.com/content.php/3362-FanArt-Friday!-Final-Fantasy-Fan-Art-Showcase-of-the-Week-92). Clearly the fantastic Fin hasn't lost her touch! The crazed look in Sephiroth's eyes, Jenova by his side, and oh man that incredible detail. Not often we get ink pen works on the showcase, amazing!

Commission - Anthro Chocobo by FuriarossaAndMimma (http://furiarossaandmimma.deviantart.com)

And now for something completely different! I don't think I've ever seen anything quite like this before, but as a massive chocobo fan I couldn't help but share it - it's so well done! Everthing from beak to claw has been expertly imagined and put to digital image magic by Furiarossa to create an anthropomorphic chocobo! Or, as I call him, Chocoboman. Clearly this mild-mannered hero was innocently working in a mist lab one day when to his shock, a magical chocobo bit him and so Chocoboman was born. The future hero of FFXVI? Undoubtedly.

Final Fantasy XIV Fan art #4~ by AlNiCo-ism (http://alnico-ism.deviantart.com)

That leads us to the final artwork of this week's showcase, and it was very hard to pick as AlNiCo has been very hard at work. Just check out these other (http://alnico-ism.deviantart.com/art/Final-Fantasy-14-Fan-Art-505048132) awesome (http://alnico-ism.deviantart.com/art/FFXIV-Athania2-505424416?q=gallery%3AAlNiCo-ism%2F33996124&qo=3) images! (http://alnico-ism.deviantart.com/art/Final-Fantasy-14-Fan-Art-3-505612656?q=gallery%3AAlNiCo-ism%2F33996124&qo=2) The colouring on every image is breathtakingly beautiful. It's almost as if they were inspired by an incredible sunset. The style is just incredible. I bow to you, H, these are simply amazing, I'm running out of words!

Tifa Lockhart - Heroine of the Planet by CrystalMoonlight1 (http://crystalmoonlight1.deviantart.com) (cosplay) and Zack Wheat (photography)

This show isn't over yet, folks, it's time for Cosplay of the Week! This week we're getting a treat as the beautiful cosplay artist Crystal portrays my favourite character, Tifa Lockhart. It's a combination of Crystal's superb costume, piercing eyes and an expertly taken photo by her personal friend Zack (not Zack Fair, we're informed) that caught my attention this week. If you like this pic, there are more, so go check out her Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/crystaltifacosplay) for Rinoa, Garnet, Serah and even FFXV's Stella!

FanArt New Years Eve? You might need to revise that opening, BoB. ;) A lot of interesting artworks here, but the first two really grabbed me the most. Especially that re-imagined Barret! :D Great stuff overall.
