I feel like you and I are alike in a few regards in terms of character art. For some characters like Tifa and Lara Croft, which choose to "overboob" them, not due to any self-indulgent perversion, but because we feel like it's part of the design's job of making them appear like they're strong characters. But, maybe that's just me and you have your own version.
Well said. While she's not my favorite Final Fantasy Heroine, there is no denying her appeal. I find myself looking for fanart of her more frequently than any other video game character (my favs included).
