FF9 Steiner and Beatrix by Halpenske FF9 Steiner and Beatrix by Halpenske
I'm really into Final Fantasy 9 right now, and Steiner and Beatrix are my most favorite characters in this game:)

I used water soluble pencils for painting. Decided main colors, dissolve it with water, then added more pencil texture over it.

I drew this picture especially listening to cover songs of FF9 by Kate Covington (Katethegreat19 in YouTube):D

I do.I'm, actually, thinking of to paint her digitaly.
But I'm much more comfortable to paint traditionaly.
Maybe I paint in the two aways... Why not ? :D

I sometimes paint with digital tool, but I prefer using traditional way, too. But I know many people paint traditionally and then edit with paint software. I'm glad you like ff9 and going to paint Beatrix:)

Beatrix will be my second experience of painting digitaly. But I don't think that I'll ever try to sketch with a mouse O.0
I hope it come out as good as yours :D

Trigon: Did Arella told you what happen to your father?

Raven: She told me enough. She told me you kill him.

Trigon: No, I am your father.

Raven: NO!!!

Thank you:) I like Steiner/Beatrix a lot, too! I like this couple because Steiner is not a typical type of guy who usually makes love with beautiful girl. Steiner is one of my most favorite characters in FF9 as he shows his awkwardness but also his strong heart and strength especially in later part of the game. And he gets Beatrix who is also my favorite:D

this is beautiful. This is my favourite couple in IX as well and it's so great to see such great art of them. There's some wonderful detailing in there and I love how you've done it in a more realistic style than the game

:iconsuperw00tplz: I love this couple, mainly their awkwardness towards each other ^_^
Very Well Done btw, Steiner looks good without being too pretty (Cuz he's not a pretty boy, thats why Zidane's in the game ^_^) and Beatrix is Beautiful too

Thank you! I'm glad that many people put this picture to their favorite:) I thought Steiner/Beatrix is not popular, but looks like there are many people who like this couple!
I have many things that I want to paint, but definitely Steiner/Beatrix is one of themes I want to keep drawing/painting.

Thank you for your comment:) I saw your cosplay of Beatrix, and I really enjoyed it! You look like real General Beatrix..I liked all details you put on your costume.
When I draw/paint FF9 fanart, I always listen to Kate's song at least one time. Her songs are so beautiful, aren't they?
I enjoy drawing/painting Steiner and Beatrix. I want to submit more pictures of them in the future.

Ahh lovely! The coloring and texture are so rich...I loe your attention to detail in the armor and hair!

Also, Kate's brilliant. I found her through her cover of Rose of May earlier this year because she featured a picture from 2006 of an older version of my Beatrix costume in the video she made to accompany the song, and someone linked me to it. Instant love of her work <3

The scene that Steiner and Beatrix fight together to save Alexandria is one of the most favorite scenes in FF9! I like drawing both Steiner and Beatrix, but Steiner's armor and helmet are difficult parts for me.

I'm so happy knowing there are many people who love Steiner and Beatrix!!
Yoshitaka Amano's drawings/paintings for FF9 are amazing, and they are my most favorite pictures done by him for Final Fantasy series. Especially, Steiner drawn by him is so cool.

Steiner is a derp but he IS useful on the battlefield! And Beatrix of course is a legend. I love their little side-romance in the game!
