Jizo are represented in several different countries and can mean a variety of things, but their primary common myth is that Jizo is a Buddhist monk who has attained enlightenment but has stayed behind to help those who are still in need of guidance to reach heaven. Jizo, in Japan specifically, are revered as guides for travelers and as protectors of children; especially children who have died before their parents. In general the Jizo are a benevolent symbol of aide and comfort.
Another commission from JAFAX.
This is the third human character I've been asked to make and I'm VERY happy with how he turned out. The girl who commissioned him was quite happy as well! I plan to take more human characters in the future and hopefully this one will show a vote of confidence that I can make cute humans as well. I actually HAVEN'T played FF7 but I was pleased with him as a whole, I think he looks a lot like the refs I found ^-^
