"War leave it's trail/in Moonlight so pale/in Shadows it flows/in rivers, in rivers
I put on my mask/an go where they ask/the blood an my hands won't wash away, wash away/
So I might once again see the Roses of May" ~ LAyrics by Katethegreat19

I love this painting :D You made all the emotions of the chorus of katethegreats "Rose of May" Song in it (Waaaah, bad englisch x.x)

A more vulnerable/emotional interpretation of Beatrix than the usual. It's quite lovely, particularly that one full eye.

I didn´t played ff 9 but the first time i saw a picci of beatrix i liked her!
And i hate dagger...-.-
don´t ask me why.
Charexl-chan Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2008
Who doesn't dislike Dagger for one reason or another. I've played the game and I can't stand her.

Beautifully done!
kurru-mitsumi Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2008  Student Digital Artist
the patch on herb eye is mettle but ive never seen the other disine you speak of
it is under appriciated
fsuharja Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2008
this is beautiful!

me and my cousins love Beatrix very much.
(for FF9 we will and still love Beatrix)

i couldn't agree more, many people said ff9 is bad/etc. it is NOT! it's just a bounceback, to memory the fantasy from ff1-8! somewhat, it's unfair for a 'bounceback' to be inappreciated, just because it is 'remake'. TT_TT
btw the storyline sometimes make me cry.

thx for the Beatrix. ^___^
kisabolipz Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2008
one of my fave characters!!
Sir-Pumpkinhead Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
Beautiful pic, Sir! :D The splatter tech you use is simply wonderful and gives it an ethereal feel ^-^

I'm a FF9 fan myself and I have to agree with you, it's a very underrated game :( but well, there are some of us that enjoyed it quite much ;) especially the music and the overall looks and designs for it :nod: It does seem like it was the last FF to have a really fantasy-dreamy environment; the recent ones (although I haven't played them I sense and see this via pics and comments from friends that do play them) tend to have the medieval kind of mythos and feel, rather than being magical by themselves, like this one... Oops! :o sorry for the rant, just want to add that you have an awesome gallery too and that your work is wonderful ^_^ See ya! :wave:
SensualMadness Featured By Owner May 30, 2008
God, I love this! There are always too little Beatrix-fanart (in other words, you saved my day). Your watercoloring style is beautiful, I like the lightness of the colors especially. Mine turn out always too dark and scary o__o
ch0co-pudding Featured By Owner May 18, 2008  Professional General Artist
ZOMG ff9 fanart!!! :heart: ahhh ff9 was so the best ff (according to me lol)
Revenant-Wings Featured By Owner May 18, 2008
it was a great game :D
ch0co-pudding Featured By Owner May 18, 2008  Professional General Artist
was amazzzing!! lol i totally love kuja, he was the best XD
Stacie-Yuriko Featured By Owner May 11, 2008
Awesome work.
One of my favorite games. :heart:
RenKram013 Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2008  Professional General Artist
Wow. I really really love Beatrix too. Too bad she's only playable for a short period of time. I hope she's one of the main characters. Still, even though she was kinda like the anti-hero, I loved her since she was introduced in the game.^^
Revenant-Wings Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2008
yeah i know what u mean.
even in ff9 when she is an enemy in the beginning i still thought she was the best. and when Alexandria is attacked her and Steiner fight side by side is my second favourite bit of the game :D

tnx for the comment and fave man!
RenKram013 Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2008  Professional General Artist
Now that you say that, I missed FF9 so baaad! Lol
And if I remember correctly, she wields the infamous Save the Queen sword.

You're welcome!:D

*jawdrop* omfg. awesome.
Vincent-the-Fifth Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2008
I've always liked Beatrix, she fought with the utmost valor and honor...the perfect warrior to fight for what she believed in.
Revenant-Wings Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2008
yeah. i love how at the start u are against her even tho u know she is decent but just on the other side and then she joins Steiner in Alexandria and fights aside u.
Vincent-the-Fifth Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2008
I had such a difficult time fighting her though since she was such a skilled warrior and then when she joins the party for a bit I didn't want to let her go because she was so powerful
