This was done for a contest about scenes from rpg's.
This scene happens in FF VI if you let Cid die. Celes, being completely alone, tries to commit suicide falling from a cliff.
She survives and tries to find the other main characters after she finds Locke's bandana (that's what the bird holds here). I love Celes! : D

Amazingly realistic work.

ThomasJH (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 5/18/2011 12:49

stunning piece of pixel art

epoxy (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/25/2011 02:21

Ooh! Beautiful illustration! I like her hair, clothes, and posture - it looks like she just got up, is disappointed that she's still alive, and hasn't seen the bird yet. I also like the omission of her big white cape which, in the game, made Celes look too majestic at this, her lowest point.

SatTheArtist (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/24/2011 17:52

This has been one of my favorite pixels for a long time. It's just so amazing.

KalasMannen (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/3/2011 13:36

I really like how the sky was done in this one. 

EdJr (Level 9 Nidan) @ 8/14/2010 07:26

Beautiful, beautiful!

The clouds look like they're solid >.< 

Zahakiel (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 5/20/2010 22:45

RPG_Boy (Level 5 Captain) @ 5/6/2010 18:18

I am still in love with her :(

ATM (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/20/2009 01:46

I was much impressed by this smooth sand. Umm..,it's so cool!

RA/pdx (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/19/2009 03:31

 I like it - even the sky looks a bit unfinished for me...

Torrent (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/7/2009 19:50

Man, I remember this moment from the game. It makes me nostalgic. Very nice picture. Looking at it I can even remember the sound of the surf on the beach.

abdelhc (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/20/2009 12:23


CommanderD97 (Level 1 Intern) @ 5/2/2009 09:09

Cool, nice work. Is that an eye on her belt?

Conzeit (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/23/2009 22:59

yep, that's what I was trying to get to...until you zoom in the bird with the bandana could perfectly be just some blue rock.

Namre (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 1/10/2009 01:35
Hi, good job!

I have a question, isn't the girl a little far from the bandana? I mean, if I first saw the bandana, I would first try to look at and inspect it more to make sure that it is indeed Locke's before looking away thinking? Well, just an observation ^_^ (I haven't played the game so I don't know how the scene played out. So please forgive me.)

Still, I love how you made the whole thing!

happip (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 11/24/2008 11:19
she isn't looking at the bandana, she's just thinking about her stuff until she realises the bird is there.
I didn't want to make things so blatantly obvious xD  I think it's fine like that, I focused more on the character itself rather than the bandana, 'cause it's the only moment of the game where it's only about her.

Conzeit (Level 1 Rookie) @ 11/23/2008 10:19
um, if the bandana is such a big thing...put some more emphasis on the bird, make him contrast the bg...but more than anything make the bandana contrast with everything...I didnt even know the girl was supposed to be looking at something

TheFox (Level 1 Seaman) @ 11/20/2008 21:40
Very nice job on the background :D

YungYankee (Level 1 Gangster) @ 11/10/2007 19:52
I love the background

MrMister (Level 1 Depressed) @ 10/3/2007 01:54

DJD (Level 4 Button Man) @ 9/30/2007 20:42
Always loved this piece, but just now realized that the composition would fit fairly well into the story of Theseus and Ariadne. <3

HoofFoot (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 6/24/2007 06:21
Awww. So pretty and sweet.

crusader333 (Level 3 Stalker) @ 6/15/2007 06:31

jedzed (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 2/24/2007 06:06

Marina (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 2/24/2007 04:00
Me encantó happs... :D  ojalá mucha gente no se hubiese pasado de perezosa para poder haber llevado a cabo ese mini-concurso -__-

vanSchmidt (Level 1 Intern) @ 12/23/2006 05:04
2 words..   Beuti-Full

JerryPie (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 11/22/2006 21:14

This is amazing, and I feel like a tool even offering a crit at all.. but ill try to be a sfriendly as possible. (because I couldnt have done anything this nice myself)

I just noticed her back foot seems kind of strange...almost like its going parallel with the bottom boarder of hte image..maybe if you tilted it back toward the north east of the picture just a tad, and scooted it in a little so it wasnt so close to the water line, I think it would be alot nicer...it would also make the background seem more vast...since her foot wont go as far back into the background...

insane work though man..5/5

verfum (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 8/25/2006 16:32

I realy like this - fav'd. I couldn't crit ever

Juank_corp (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 7/17/2006 15:24

great work as always man!!.... i reallylike your work!!

Lawrence (Level 10 Operative) @ 7/12/2006 06:07
Ah, the lens flare from the sun is a very cool touch, I have trouble implementing those. It goes without saying that this piece is technically amazing. But I also really like the overall atmosphere; that sun above those clouds provide a really warm, evocative, strong atmosphere which fits the subject of the scene really well.

BlackFang (Level 6 Hitman) @ 7/9/2006 22:28

perfect piece! just think that the shun should me more shiny (and reflects more on the water)

5/5 +fav anyway
