Final Fantasy VIII v1

Type: Fanlisting #96
Theme: Lion Heart
Featuring: Squall Leonhart (Final Fantasy VIII)
Online: June 30, 2014 ~ present

Final Fantasy VIII was my first Final Fantasy game and will always have an extra special place in my heart ♥ I discovered this game by chance thanks to all the beautiful artwork of Squall & Rinoa floating around online, and I had to find out more about their story XD The stunning full motion videos in the game were ahead of its time and the beautiful love story helped make this one of my favorite games from my childhood ♥

Version 1 features the reluctant hero of the game, Squall Leonhart, with his trusty gunblade emblazoned with the Griever ♥ He is a man of few words so I wanted a cool and mysterious theme for the design ☆

The original design was a little more colorful, with splashes of blue/green. I made a minor update to the design in 2017 to focus on yellow/orange to match the gunblade.
