Finally finished! Boy I can't wait till this movie comes out and hopefully when it does people will have way better referances to work from! ....sheesh working from blury images is maddening!! XP Any way here is the referance pic I used. Since I'm not very good at exact copying I modified it a bit, I thought Cloud's face looked a little scrunched in the screen shot. Hope you don't mind Gigandas! Any ways...Enjoy! :D pic reference

This is taking a good shape so far. I like the smoke. I cant wait to see the finished one!
Gigandas (Feb 19, 2004)'s the main focus of the picture, Cloud XD(obviously not the clouds in the bg, but the character's name being Cloud).And in this position, it looks like he'll have his wolf thingy on his left shoulder^^.Very nice so far XD.
Yeah, I know what you mean about the CG stuff your working off of.It's hard^^;.I drew Cloud from FF7 AC where he's in his fighting stance and there's a zoom up on his head.

I can tell already this is going to be great. Your stuff is always so clear and fresh looking. Can't wait to see it finished.

I looked at your reference pic, and yours is much better. I wish I could do things this well in that amount of time, takes me 10 times longer and isn't a tenth as good!
marcello (Feb 19, 2004)
meh, for some reason his whole right-half bugs me. It seems like a bit of body is missing, and that arm isn't quite part of the person... fatten either that or he's REALLY skinny yet with a large arm.
your picture does look nicer than the reference, the reference seems to say "haha I am such an asshole"
method3 (Feb 19, 2004)
ROFL, Marcello's comments crack me up every freakn time. I have to agree, he seems a bit skinny, or are you just really into bisho characters? No fault there I guess... tons of FF games are all about the pretty boys...
Alinnia (Feb 19, 2004)
His arm must be cold >o.o<
dixielandcutie (Feb 19, 2004)
wow, the texture of the whole thing is so awesome. nice work as usual
Gigandas (Feb 19, 2004)
Actually, Cloud looks better in the images I've seen around the internet with websites on FF7 AC.In fact, I haven't seen this picture anywhere on any of the sites I've been to.His face seems a bit distorted in the reference, so I'm glad EverDream added her great skill into making it look a LOT better^^.The wolf head on his shoulder guard there is awesome XD.I love that little thing^^.And looking at the reference and its blurriness, you must've completely remodeled him here><.Awesome job.....just.....awesome^^.
DeadlyBlondeArcher (Feb 19, 2004)
You're gonna get a slap on the wrist for that kind of thing, evil cloud. Hey, I watched the animation on this and it was hypnotizing! Watching you do the background was almost like watching crystals form in fast motion. These applets must do a whole lot of things I have no clue about.
davincipoppalag (Feb 19, 2004)
incredible...the clouds in the bg.and the whole picture in general..this is a good one
Look (Feb 20, 2004)
I'm speechless! love the coloring! beautiful!
YukiEiriSan (Feb 20, 2004)
Oh... My god... *SOB* It's so beautiful... First Vincent, now Cloud!.... Can You do Sephiroth?
marcello (Feb 20, 2004)
she already did.
The_Chosen (Feb 20, 2004)
verry nice as alwase u realy do stunning work
Edward (Feb 21, 2004)
wow that is so kewl looks so totaly awsome and soft...way to go!
RabidMalikFanGirl (Feb 22, 2004)
AIE!!!! *glomps* This is awesome... You are one of my absolute favorites on 2draw ^^
But... Shouldn't he be a bit more... buff??? :) It's so soft looking.
Enishi (Feb 23, 2004)
-chants Sephiroth Sephiroth Sephiroth- you definately need Sephiroth in there, but great job on Cloud!
marcello (Feb 23, 2004)
she already did sephiroth, are you blind?
EverDream (Feb 23, 2004)
I think what YukiEiriSan and Enishi mean is a picture of Sephiroth done in this style other than the quick version I'd done earlier........if I'm wrong go ahead and smack me....erm...(not really but tell me...heh) :)

Jack_Fox (edited Sep 17, 2004)
SICK! This is awesome! Cloud is the best character evar! BTW, not to brag or anything but every time I see the advent children pics of cloud I see me...I look a lot like 'im...Peace, Jack
Urei-sama (Sep 17, 2004)
i know! i JUST saw a clip for the movie. it 'is' going to be a movie right? because im hearing rumors that they're revising the first game. the clips look amazing and you captured his whole "ooOoOooo"ing aura brilliantly XD
sephiroth54321 (Sep 30, 2004)
looks better than the real thing! ^^ awesome picture dawg
EverDream (Oct 2, 2004)
News going around is that not only is AC going to be a movie but they're making a sequal to the game as well. ;)
Cianteed (Oct 13, 2004)
Looks like my hair...
Gigandas (edited Oct 13, 2004)
Wait, they're really making a sequel game too???When did they announce that?Cause all I heard was that the prequel game was coming out on DoCoMo cell phones and the sequel being the movie.If you know a link to a site that mentions that, can you give it to me.....please :)???

-Oh wait, I just checked out and it's called FFVII Dirge of Cerberus.I wonder when they popped that announcement cause I completely missed it^^;;;.It does say you will be playing as Vincent though.Should be awesome.....can't wait :)....
A3 (Oct 14, 2004)
