I think I’ve already established the fact that Tifa is my favorite Final Fantasy VII character. There’s nothing wrong with Aeris, and it was a bit of a surprise that she got killed in FFVII, but if you asked me to try to describe her, there’s only so much I could say about her. That’s how memorable she was.

Okay, okay. That’s a little harsh. It has been a while since I last played FFVII. Aeris does have a nice, demure, motherly quality about her. She wasn’t the strongest character (and by that I mean she didn’t serve that big of a purpose in the story), but it did strengthen the emotional content of the game.

Okay, I will shut up now. I know Aeris is loved by many. I’m sorry.

As for the drawing, I did not intend for the fan art to turn out as “dark” as it is. I probably shouldn’t have added as much shadowing on her face as I did. I was also trying to make her smile, but Aeris just wouldn’t smile for me. How very philosophical.

If you look close enough, she doesn’t look too contemplative or unhappy though. It’s just at first glance that it may appear that way. It’s deceptive.
