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 :)
