Hope Estheim by Zolaida Hope Estheim by Zolaida
A commission for the awesome :iconceodore: He made me choose between three Final Fantasy characters to draw, hardest decision ever D:
So, I drew Hope Estheim from FFXIII and XIII-2! He wanted an older Hope then in XIII, but a different outfit then in XIII-2.

Update: A cosplayer actually cosplayed this outfit, see here! fav.me/d6yll88 :D

My tumblr: zolaida.tumblr.com/

SAI and cs5, used some textures from cgtextures.com (for the clouds)

est une image très créative, j'aime vraiment estheim, a une très réaliste, mais je lui ferais son visage un peu plus masculin, a une touche magique et féminine!

Would it be to much to ask if I could use this work in some icons? Of course I would give you full credit for the artwork (link back to this page, etc.).

Not to say, of course, that I don't respect you as an artist when I ask for a request. I don't mean to insult you when I ask or anything, and if I ever did I apologize. I highly respect you work, I think it is lovely, and I can appreciate the time and talent it takes. One day I would love to commission one from you, but poor college student is poor so that might be a ways off, haha.

However, if you had done the request, I would have be honored, and I know the difference and it wasn't me trying to be flippant, I promise.

I just thought I should add this cause I realize my last reply might have been a bit insulting with "never hurts to ask" part. Anyways, thought I should add this and keep up the good work, like I said. Hopefully you keep drawing in the commissions because you deserve them. <3

I see, I understand your reasons better now. I'm happy you think of it this way because, people who aren't very familiar with art think the artist can easily make a picture and therefor they can get "free art" to the subject of their liking. They don't really think it through. Of course, there are a lot of people taking request, so I don't blame you for asking! I'm actually a poor college student myself haha and right now I only get money from commissions. I really appreciate that you explained it a bit further, it's nice to know you understand my reasons and respect them :) Thank you so much and I hope someone else might take your request!

Will do!

Also, if you have the time, I could totally use some pics of Hope blushing and looking angry ~ You totally don't have to, but I really do like your work and I am sure they would come out awesome, even sketches!

And thank you for letting me use your work, I appreciate it!

I'm sorry, I never take requests, I have very little free time and I want that to draw my own ideas. If you want something from me you'll have to commission me like Ceodore has.

You're welcome :)

Gorgeous! I love his outfit. It uses some of the best parts of his old outfit.. minus that ugly shawl thing. ._.
You drew his face so soft and mature. ♥ I admire how much time you put into all the little details. The glowing of the crystal... giving off a faint glow to Hope's face. I love it. ♥
The only thing that bugs me is that one section of light grass right behind Hope. I feel like there should be some more dark grass in front of it. As it is right now, the brush patterns are fairly obvious, and makes that section look incomplete.

Beautiful work, though. Seriously. :)
