CLOUD STRIFE. Made by head, so some things arent correct :P. I think the art is very stiff, so i wanted to give it more life by adding Lifestream and background. It's been a while again, since im very busy with school, work and my training. I had sketched this cloud with ballpoint almost 2 months ago. And I worked on it a few times in a week. Im tired of it, cause it's getting bored to do so. So, I'm working on something else now. SO here is the upload. Hope you'll enjoy, altough the quality isnt as strong as the higher resolution. Omnislash

AIKUZA 2005-11-29 04:35:52 To be honest, im still not satisfied with it, but I gave up editing it more, so crits&comments are welcome, so maybe you can convince of something :3
gothqueen 2005-11-29 08:16:38 I think it's really good. You chose the right colors and the effect worked out very well. The anatomy is good as wel
Kheine 2005-11-29 09:06:16 The effects really rocks pops! Its was long time since you posted some awesome dude! Really neat shit! And i kinda think i know how ya are feeling. I also drawed some pic that been shitting my desk for some months and dont want to color them cuz its boring...

Zeph 2005-11-29 12:32:46 By far the coolest thing is that green swirl. How did you do that? You're right, Cloud does look stiff, but very nice expression on the face
Kaizu 2005-11-29 14:07:09 AIKUZAAAAAH nice lightning effects buddy, i agree with zephio on the epression, he looks like hes thinking: "oh yea.. i know im good.. but you can tell me again if you want to" ok im wandering off. The design itsself is a bit stiff yea but doesnt really matter on this pic. And the arms look like theyre really 'attached' to his body, like a doll. good job anyways.. DRAW MORE, TRAIN LESS !
AIKUZA 2005-11-30 15:21:30 Thanks dudes! Im glad you agree on the stiff pose. But like you said Kaizu, for this pic, is really doesnt matter that mush, altough im not quite of a frontal character drawer, cause its very dull to do so. But Cloud always looked cool, so he can have it I guess. Im glad you likes the effects, they werent that difficult ones you know some tricks. They're drawn with a a brushtool and birghtened in layers. And for some swirl effects I used the smudge tool to give a nice swirl to the Lifestream. I cant train less Kaizu, training is what keeps me going dude ;)

Trunks fanart. I made this a while ago. I had just watched the episode of the Cell saga, when Trunks realises he can't beat Cell by just raising his power, because he also has to increase his speed. This is the moment Trunks realises that.

Inspired by one of my favorite illustrators, Harry Clarke - I filled the entire space with detail... The Enchantress is known to be the ultimate femme fatale, considered to be dangerously seductive as she is irresistable & skilled in magic.
