FF6 - Born this Way by KatimusPrime FF6 - Born this Way by KatimusPrime
I was riding high off of seeing the video for Lady Gaga's Born this Way and ended up drawing Esper Terra kind of in a Lady Gaga-ish version of Terra's regular costume? With more curves. ^^

I've always loved Terra simply for the fact that she's this quiet, subdued girl with ridiculous powers that only wants normal things. I guess you could say the same for Aeris, but I dunno, Terra's transformation and dealing with it and the world touched me more. I was also 12 or 13 when I first played FF6, so it was a more formative experience for me. ^^

So, yeah, picture of someone trying to accept herself inspired by a song about accepting yourself?

This is also an experiment in channel tomfoolery in Photoshop. I drew this in blue pen. :D

XD I guess I don't spend a lot of time around Aerises. She got the Moe stamp on her head before I decided I didn't like her and didn't want too much to do with her. ^^

YAY!! :D

Wah! Tragic! D8 XD

I admit, she often gets interpreted/played that way and they really gave her that kind of treatment in AC, but if you just look at the original character: she spent her formative years as a lab subject, the rest of her time in the slums, she scams people with flower prices, dresses boys in drag and runs from Turks. I always saw her as street smart, morally relative in a hippie way, shrewd enough to hide behind her ~*~pretty and innocent~*~ exterior when need be, and subtly hilarious. Of course, I mean, that's with a side of princess (bet if Cloud let her, she'd spend all the gil from monsters on dresses and lingerie), but I could imagine she's capable of kicking more ass than she appears to be.

Then again, she was my first FFVII RP character (I first picked her up because I used to dress like her--you know, the ultra feminine dresses with.... Boots. 8|). XD;;; You should ask Drak about mine--she's played against her numerous times. And knows what mischief she can wreck. :>

Hrm. I never thought to see it that way. XD I think it was because I chose Tifa/Cloud when I took a side in the Cloud ship-war. (I'm always closing my mind when it comes to ships, but that's mostly due to the fact that if too much is entertaining to me, it's hard to do what I need to get done because I'm distracted. D: ) Anyway, we all dote on our faves. XD I think there's only one character I ever RP'd as that I never truly connected with. XD Playing someone always changes your view of them.
