Butterfly of Ill-Omen
by *leyna55 on deviantART

It's a character study. It doesn't go "WOO BOOBIES." It's still idealized, but it's not anime-idealized, and for some reason her face looks more like a real person to me.

(Also an interesting contrast with the well-known Lulu-and-butterflies portrait by Japanese artist "HN" who gave me permiss for this userpic!)

That's a gorgeous picture. I love it when artists use a realistic style and don't just fall back on an anime-like one. I get bored when fanart looks the same as art from a manga, for example. Definitely one of the best FFX portraits I've seen.

I think 'WOO BOOBIES' sums up most of male fandom in general, LOL.

So I've heard. :)

Boobies are all well and good, but they flop.

And they really hurt when you catch a nipple in a bowstring.

Woo shoulders!

And yay, Jungian synchronicity.
