Rushin' for Beats and Kickin' Dolphins by Robaato Rushin' for Beats and Kickin' Dolphins by Robaato
Iím currently going through one of those high-strung and stressful periods. Right now we may have to move within a month, but we recently found out that we mayyy not have to, depending on our new income analysis with the landlord. We were allowed into a low-income housing-kinda deal 4 years ago, amidst layoffs and being poor. Since my wife got a new gig, she now makes too much (but since sheís in the city, her commute costs and such are equivalent to what she was working with before; which equals broke still, it just looks different on paper. Weaksauce.) So, yeah.

So weíre putting our heads together on what to do, itís just that weíve been doing that so much, weíre getting headaches.

Anyway, hereís a quickie Tifa I did earlier; my wife is interested in some of the early Final Fantasies (back when Square-Enix was Squaresoft, *OORAH!*) so Iím spending the weekends playiní them for her (she likes to watch/read along with me). She picked 7 first since sheís most familiar with the characters, but Iím going to take her through 6, 8, 9, and 10 as well (and hopefully 4, but weíll see how much she can tolerate that. She spazzes out on early 16-bit graphics. LOL). Did the first disc in a weekend, but missed out on a lot of normal play-through leveling up and stuff lol (didnít even hit Wutai). Itís been so long, I forgot how long Disc 1 actually was.

crappy situations are there to put you to the test, and if your relationship is as good as it sounds then I'm not worried about you man. I truly believe that love is the strongest force there is. No matter what life throws at you, as long as you two maintain what you have, nothing will break you.

Aww bless you. I hope your financial situation improves :( It's silly when, on paper, you "appear" to be better off when in actual fact your *just* breaking even |(I'm in the same sort of predicament, so I sympathise completely)

Your wife sounds lovely and I hope she enjoys the best of the FF series!

Tifa looks gorgeous! Your incredibly talented. :)

Awww, thanks. :3 It's good to hear from folks who are sharing somewhat of a similar issue, to remind us that we're not the only ones facing crap like this.

And thanks for the compliments! :heart:

Oh, man. That's gonna be a blast. VII, VIII, and IX are the best in my opinion. VII's been my favorite since the good ol' days.

Q^Q I hope you guys get out of these troubles :heart: It must be hard. Also, I JUST started replaying VII last night. No joke. Its been so looong. I think the last time I played it was when I was 8 or 9 years old. @_@;; I definitely forgot a lot.

Old school-sprites definitely ain't for everyone which is why a slight visual upgrade would be nice for the other classic Final Fantasy games, make it a bit more tolerable for people that get put off by the graphics of old but hell, I wouldn't know if Squeenix as it is would be able to handle something of that sort right, haha.

Fukken nice job man, love the way you rendered Tifa especially her face and expression. Now I've got the Cosmo Canyon theme playing in my head for some reason.
Hope it all turns out well for you and your lady, bro!

LOL I get asked all the time if my username came from Tifa's limit break. I just say yes since the real reason isn't as glamorous.

Don´t forget to get the limit break "Omnislash" in Battle Square in Gold Saucer by the end of the disc 2. I wouldn´t be able to win the game without this tip.

actually, her move is called "Dolphin Blow"

so I think a more adequate title would be "Rushin' for Beats and...


on second thought, nevermind... >__>

(love the pic, btw lol)
