Eight of Swords by DippyWerewolf Eight of Swords by DippyWerewolf
This is a giftart illustration I drew for :iconauronlu:'s excellent Final Fantasy X fan novel Love Her and Despair. If you haven't read it, you should! I came upon it by accident while doing background work for Guardian (I think I was looking for a map of Spira? And stumbled upon the title page on lj) and was pulled in after just a few sentences.

The writing is very beautiful and the imagery is frequently quite arresting. On more than one occasion I really wanted to stop reading and grab my sketchbook but this chapter was finally what did it. I love love love tarot imagery and the Eight of Swords is visually one of my very favorites. So with that combined with the black, white, and red colorscheme and just the emotional impact of this scene I had to stop reading and freak out for a few seconds.

(Of course if you haven't read the story you're probably like what the hell Christine right now but I mainly put it here so I could have a place to show the author.)

*faints* OH MY GOODNESS THANK YOU!!!!

I wanted to draw it, and tried to draw it, but I just couldn't -- I was so disappointed.

But you've done it! And it looks fantastic. Thank you so much!
