Tifa Combine by iDNAR Tifa Combine by iDNAR
I thought that FF7:AC rendering of her didn't give the feel of the original design so I guess here's my version. I tried combining the original Tifa with AC version and adding some characteristics of Nomura's modern style(FF10+), and of course, inevitably, some of my style. I think I was moderately successful in this...sorta :/. Comments?

If you look carefully, you can see one of two failed attempts at it behind her that was erased. Usually i wouldn't redraw it on the same paper as the erased version is still visible and I can't help but follow its path again. Does anyone else get that when they try to improve a picture by drawing over an erased picture?

He did a good job on Eghrgiez or whatever. Kinda makes you wonder if he was even apart of the character concept art making for AC at all doesn't it?

Cloud, you're next. >: D

Tifa looks so cute here <3

Karakzhen Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2010
I think this turned out perfect! It kept the original style and also blended a bit of the AC into it as well. Very nice job!

Wow. I love this :) I love the hair and the eyes :)

I really like the softness of her expression in this. It stays true to her original character design from Nomura.

This is great work! I really like how you caught the likeness of Tifa in this one :) I think you are right about how they didn't really capture her in the AC movie. This one , I'd say is definately an improvement :painter:

Keep up the good work!
JinxKrylancelo Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2008
This is really good. I'm trying to draw people like this as well. You have any advice I could possibly use?

somberchild2009 Featured By Owner May 30, 2008
That IS Tifa, just as I would imagine her. I'm utterly speechless. I love the rough shading. Less is more. Absolutely gorgeous. :D

Wicked-Biotch Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2008
Beautiful sketch. As you can see, I think Tifa is pretty.
Cedarville Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2008
I like this way better than the AC version. Although she was beautiful in AC, if I had seen a picture of her before I knew it was *her*, I wouldn't have been able to tell. (Does that make sense?) Again, I love your version. This, to me, is dead on. Good job. :)

WHAT!? why did you put this in scraps!? its way too good for that! and by the way, she looks awsome!!
Zae369 Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2008
Awesome work! I agree. Though I do quite like the ac one, it looks too much like Rinoa's design and doesnt resemble the original one much. Kinda like Nomura changed his mind on what look he wanted Tifa to have.

I think tifa in AC dont have the original feel too~~
Faerlyte Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2007  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
You have captured her perfectly. I like your version better than AC's, though I liked that one too. Yours is definitely more true to her original design in the game.

Hey uh... you might want to check this out: [link];page=2&select_arrange=headnum&desc=asc&category=&sn=off&ss=on&sc=on&keyword=&sn1=&divpage=1

Did you give them permission to use your sketch? Just asking, because they already stole a couple of FFArt from my friend.
kyle1281989 Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2007
great cob on this, expecially the nonsmeared "for a change" shading
I-know-my-abc Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2007
God damn this a beautiful drawing. I think you captured Tifa PERFECTLY. I'm just in love with this right now. Her eyes say so much.

Mad props.
Yezen Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2007
This is very good. What kind of paper/pencil/pen was used here?
ReggieBlade Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2007
I love the way you shaded her and the way you drew her hair, but you made her look a bit too old, and Tifa has a face shape that is hard to capture actually, from my point of view. Draw it too sharp, she's going to look way to old, draw her too round, and it's just going to look stupid. You have to draw her to the most perfect degree. But all you have to do is to make the TINIEST adjustments to her face and it will be perfect. If you can do that then I'll REALLY bow down and worship you and even do a Sabath dance for you, but then nobody's perfect and already you're an excellent artist.
Jashby Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2007
LOVE the hair!
And all the shading is perfect.
Well done!!
raist86 Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2007
Wow. There's something about her that looks so . . . sincere. I like it.
Aoikage Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2007  Student
I don't usually like Tifa, but this picture is amazing, how much detail you done to the face and hair is amazing! I love it!

Still do not like Tifa xD
Stezy07 Featured By Owner May 27, 2007   Interface Designer
woh! I feel the same, they changed her design a little, anyhoo this is great, just how I would imagine her to be properly. Just hope if they make a FFVII remake for ps3 they make her design around this!

I agree that her FF7:AC rendering didn't really feel like the original Tifa.
I like your version better ;) Nice work!
