Final Fantasy 7: Tifa by ZAKUGA Final Fantasy 7: Tifa by ZAKUGA

I wanted to capture the moments that were meaningful the story. This is Tifa leaving behind a burning Nibelheim and her dead father to go fight Sephiroth, were our story of Final Fantasy 7 starts for many of the characters. But if you are a huge FF7 nerd like me you know that the story has been going a lot earlier than FF7 and Cloud appeared. 


I'm redrawing each FF7 character in a macabre renaissance style. I'm working on Aerith, Sephiroth and Yuffie now.

This is absolutely stunning! Favorite video character ever and you did her so much justice! Love the mix of her original game and Advent Children styles.

I love how strong you made Tifa look and the choice of outfit I feel are the best parts of both designs. ^.^

after playing crisis core I felt even more empathy for some of the characters and Tifa was definitely one of them. I love how you capture her determination in this drawing

Omg, Tifa in that way is so dark and beautiful! I really liked the way you painted and the environment (looks like a traditional painting for me ^^). Good job!

A great art style but the wrong outfit for the time. I'd say you definitely captured the mood, if not the literal moment.

She is in a mixer of all her outfits + my own themes. I know she was in a cowgirl suit when her dad died.

She looks like she had a taste of mako with the glowing eyes. I love the picture.

Interesting. A much darker Tifa depiction than I'm used to, but I definitely appreciate it!

You think Tifa was 'toned down' in the game and Advent Children? I always felt she should have been physically stronger than how she was depicted, especially in Advent Children.

FANTASTIC piece, I really dig the dark and detailed style you're using here!

But didn't Tifa get RESCUED from Nibelheim? I thought I remembered her passing out or something.

She got slashed by Sephiroth, fell down a small flight of stairs and KO'ed,  but it was not fatal(surprisingly!). Her martial arts sensei found her and rescued her.

This is true, but this happens after she finds Sephiroth and tries to kill him.
