Well I finally finished this after months of putting it aside. Here's my final piece in a series of the ladies from Final Fantasy X-2 wearing FF7-themed dress spheres.

Rikku is by far my favorite and so I took my time with her. I actually did a very clean lineart instead of just painting over a sketch like I normally do. I'm starting to see how much easier it is to color if I take the time to clean up the sketch. Anyway, Rikku is supposed to be wearing clothing similar to Cloud from AC... except without pants. I personally like the chocobo belt buckle ^_^

Done in OpenCanvas 3.

Final Fantasy X-2, Rikku Square-Enix
Original character design: Tetsuya Nomura
Artwork Minh Do

this is very good, rikku is by far one of my favorite final fantasy girls. also, i figured out the value of good line work from water color drawing fairly recently so dont feel bad

So. I'm too lazy to look through all the comments to see if I ever made one on this...xD Anyway, I favorited it years ago and I'm still lovin' it today. Great job, man. Rikku never really seemed to wear much anyway, though I wouldn't have argued with a skirt being put on her in the stead of pants. Not to say that anything about this is bad at all >>; same with the other two. Diggin' it. Diggin' them. Even though 10-2 was one of my least favorite, you make me want to hack it and put this in there xD make her do "Omnislash" xD

Awesome and sexy, a great piece... of art!
NaokoElric2250 Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
Of course, as she is a woman, their outfits must be impractical, insanely revealing, and full of fan-service. The same goes for Yuna and Paine.
Granted I quite like the idea of the dress spheres, and the weapons are great, and your artwork is skillful but it is disappointing that you made them all revealing like this.

Oh well, you are a man.

More japanese slut drawing.

Well... I like the art, but I think these outfits are way sluttier than anything Nomura would design...

I've noticed, you happen to create material very well! The shines on her skin are rather nice too.

Overall, the series is rather nice. Well done ^_^

We all love the chocobo belt buckle!
Mimi-Sardinia Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
I see what the muse is saying about her "girls" popping out (Lionhart_GF on Dear Mun is one of my collection of muses), but it's a great costume. I also like that Paine is Sephiroth and Yuna is Vincent. XD

WOW!! Nice... its strange to see these images because I did a long time ago a fic in which each of the girls were involved with the character of the cosplay ... GREAT!
Pinturo Featured By Owner May 22, 2010  Hobbyist Writer
Oh yeah! Go Rikku! I like how the sword is more of a variant of the Buster Sword rather than the actual Buster Sword itself. This would've been AWESOME to use! I could totally see moves like Braver, Cross Slash, and Blade Beam working in the game. Maybe even Omnislash. Which reminds me of the one major con of FFX-2: WHY'D THEY TAKE AWAY YOUR SPECIAL MOVES!? I mean, in VII, you get Limit Breaks, in VIII, you get Limit Breaks, in X, you get Overdrives, in get nothing.
Visored-rlley Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2010
Ur X-2 work is the best ^^
Timishucheese Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2010
i like the chocobo belt
umm-hi Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2010
I keep on thinking that Rikku should have one boot that goes higher than the other....because she's quirky like that. But the art is great the way it is! Rikku's my favorite in FF10/FF10-2 as well. :)
BonkuriKun Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2009
Paine and Yuna need to switch outfits....
NekoChanTheKitty Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
Wow...this is amazing! Rikku looks great! This kind of dressphere really suits her. I'll look at the other two pics too, but from what I see here, they all look fantastic! Any chance you could give me some tips on adding details like clothing or skin? Cuz you're really good at it, and I need all the help I can get.
SisterBelldandy Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist

amazing ^^
SamusX10 Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2009
awesome, I love it
BlossoMage Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2009  Student Digital Artist
Something about Rikku's revealing apparel reminds me of Nariko from Heavenly Sword. Seeing in woman dressed as such makes her appear strong in body and character. The fact that she wears no armor makes her appear confident in her own strength. Also, the thought of her flying and flipping through the air with her graceful sword dance makes me squeal with delight. VERY NICE WORK!
izakikoong Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2009  Student Digital Artist
ohhh.. rikku is very sexy.
linkmode Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2009

malmal93 Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2009
wow thats gorgeous! :love:
falconstrife86 Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2009
A V-Neck top (maybe reaching just below the breasts) and a mini skirt might have looked better, but in any case this is pretty awesome. A good choice for Rikku, I think. :)
DarkAmriel Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2008
I love Yuna in the back there with the gun. What I love is the suit. Reminds me of Vanessa from KoF lol
LordofTibera Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2008  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
So incredible...I was working on something similar to this for the FF8 ladies. I love the similar Cloudwear. It works so well with her.
Migelangelo Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2008  Student Traditional Artist

RivisIndigoEmporium Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2008  Professional General Artist
This is wonderful. As bubbly and as perky as Rikku always was in the game, this really does seem to suit her a great deal. The belt buckle is a REALLY nice works well with the whole outfit... :nod:
HollowHeroKatarz Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2008
OMG it awesome!
