Seeing how my first "character" slot for the Ultimate fandom contest
was of a more "cartoony" styled game character, here I went the opposite end and tried someone which is a bit more realistic, plus I know that I have many Final Fantasy fans watching me, patiently waiting for another one, so here it is! and heres the details...
-Ultimate fandom contest 3: video games [link]
-Gaming franchise: Final Fantasy VII
-Environment or Character?: Character
-My Description: as follows...
As far as villians go, you gotta take your hat (or spikey blonde hair) off to Sephiroth. Probably one of the most popular "bad" characters of all time, due to the fact that he emits an unusual, yet successful vibe of both grace and destruction. He's not your generic, muscle-bound, half-witted enemy, but rather one that deceivingly looks more graceful with his slim-build, clean costume design and platinum hair that never ever seems to get tangled, or covered in dirt or blood no matter how feirce a battle gets
not to mention he tends to be more smarter too...why, in a more "realistic" situation, I don't think even Cloud's best efforts would have been enough to stop this formiddable foe
The purple theme was chosen since I think it best fits the concept of "dark magic" and looks great with the black, I don't recall Sephiroth using a shadow-ball, but hey, it looks cool here anyway
I was almost considering a green theme to fit "Mako energy" but eh...will save that for a later time.
Oh, and I'd better state that this was drawn with a mouse
! Yeah, it's the sucker way and explains why this took a week and a half to do while someone with a tablet could have done it in a day lol, I'm considering getting one though Sephiroths character design is owned by Square-Enix, this artwork was illustarted by me and is to not be used or displayed on other galleries or sites
