Nice interpretation of a bunch of pixels. I though Rude was black? Should be cool when itís done.
Gigandas (edited Feb 20, 2006)
No interpretation, using a reference from the upcoming movie.
davincipoppalag (Jul 18, 2005)
I know this is gonna have like zillions more details.. I love watchin you work Giggy!
woah_pockster (Jul 18, 2005)

<3 Rude. Boo for no Tseng :(
Gigandas (Jul 19, 2005)
lol sorry, if I had a pic of him I'd draw him too, but I don't. I'm planning to draw Cloud and Reno in the future though, so if you like either of them, they should be out here as well.
Kloxboy (Jul 19, 2005)
Looks pretty good so far.
Nice profile, he has the face for it.
He looks like someone who doesn't mess around.
taori (Jul 19, 2005)
awesome. rude is the man. sweet job on the whole ff --> realism thing. me gusta.
emmamommalag (Jul 19, 2005)
Dang! You are amazing, Gig.
fleeting_memory (Jul 19, 2005)
amazing. But of course its amazing. I have no idea who this is and I'm amazed. I think I'm going to give up drawing for a while lol
Gigandas (Jul 19, 2005)
Pshhh, I told you 'that's' why you gotta play the game first before you see the movie lol.

play it? are we talking about the movie I think we are? *looks dazed* my brain isnt working right. You do ears well
Gigandas (Jul 20, 2005)
Yeah, the "AC" in the title stands for FF7:AC, the movie. So I was just saying you should play the game first, so you know who the characters are :).
Gollywoggers (Jul 20, 2005)
Wow; this looks real. What does FF7:AC stand for?
Gigandas (edited Jul 20, 2005)
Final Fantasy 7: Advent Children

The pic is great so far I cant wait to see it finished. good job!
Cordelia_Pink (Jul 22, 2005)
Cool!! wow, you're so awesome at these, Gigandas! I will bow down to you once this is finished. hehe
Gigandas (Jul 22, 2005)
Thanks guys, but I'm hoping myself that in the end, I'll nail all the gradation in his skin tones too lol. I still have yet to learn how Aubrey does that so well, but I'm not giving up till I master it myself :). And you guys really should check out the trailer if you already haven't. Too cool to pass up :P...
davincipoppalag (Jul 22, 2005)
Aubrey is amazing , isn't she Giggy? She said she focuses in on minute areas and works them one at a time.. for hours..I don't know how she does it. But the two of you amaze me with your realism..
Ian (Jul 22, 2005)
WOAH! nice one! I always thought rude was a bit of a ponce though... ¬_¬

cant wait for the movie! thanks for the link!
silver_maiden (Jul 24, 2005)
nice Sepht 14 or 15
cannot wait
xiau (edited Aug 1, 2005)
Wow! It looks so realistic!

Plus it looks just like him XD
Gigandas (Aug 5, 2005)
Actually silver_maiden, I think last time I checked it'll be released on the 13th on DVD :). On the trailer it says it'll be a simultaneous release, so Japan will release theirs on the 14th since they're like a half a day ahead of us. I'm just letting you know so you can get a copy before they sell out ;).
oikitsumaru (Aug 5, 2005)
XD I already reserved my copy. But made the mistake of reserving it in Tokyo, while I was there, and not thinking about the fact I won't be there to pick it up. =_= there goes my 1000 yen. (eh, whats 10 bucks right? I got a cool little flyer though, with my reservation and 10% off anything in the store... ah, I love Japan)

Anyways. I can't wait till it comes out. I even went out and bought FF7 (it was only 12 bucks at best buy!) and started playing it again. YESH the graphics is so painful... but fun nonetheless.

XD This is so incredible. I don't know how you can work the Shi-painter so. >__< maybe it just hates me. I find it ironic all these people thought he looks white. He really doesn't. Not in your picture or in the trailers. By the way, how DID you become so talented? By the way, LOVE the shades.
Heartsdomain (Aug 6, 2005)
wow i love the things you do man your so good
Namori (Aug 9, 2005)
All your drawings should be sold for at least $'s THAT GOOD!!! O_o!!!
laurael (Aug 13, 2005)
What could I say that hasn't already been said? Looking damn good so far. This is going to be so killer when finished. Kisses your skills...ahuh.
LasRever (Aug 18, 2005)
This is amazing! I always thought Rude was such an overlooked character. FF7 was always my favorite of all the Final Fanasies. I heard they were making a video game featuring Vincent, mabey they already did, it was a while ago. Well anyways, wonderful job I really can't wait to see it finished!
DeadlyBlondeArcher (Aug 24, 2005)
I am only commenting on this piece of crap because you never get any comments and I feel sorry for you. HAH does that need a jk after it? I think not. As young as you are if you keep this up.... well.... maybe someday you'll come slumming and say hi to us after you're an independently wealthy famous artist. :)

You're still the king of realism Niel..Damn..
featherstone (Oct 2, 2005)
time to finish this :)
kristine (Oct 2, 2005)
this looks just like him!
Namori (Oct 4, 2005)
MUAHAHA! I saw FFVII Advent Children today! And Rude doesn't look black in the movie...he looks more like a bald Japanese guy with cool glasses and mustache. :D
nehra (Oct 5, 2005)
0......0 ....holy sh- *slaps hand over mouth lethargically*
Menyway (Oct 6, 2005)
O___O Holy crap that is awesome.. you make bald men seam hot (j/k)!! ^_~ Great job Gig.. Can't wait till it is finished!!!
Gigandas (Oct 6, 2005)
lol, thanks guys, but I have yet to make this actually impressing :P. But for those of you who haven't yet, need to check out this do I (I heard it was KICKASS from just about everyone who's seen it)
fleeting_memory (Oct 21, 2005)
FIIIIIIIIIIINISH this. Gah. You're been working on schoolwork again haven't you?!? What did I tell you about that? Well actually I dont think I ever told you anything about that-meh. You should still finish this.
Gigandas (Oct 23, 2005)
Actually, you're right, I have been busy with schoolwork :P (not to mention I have more to come, ughhh...)
And you still need to bring AC over cause I wanna see it....! Don't let me die here waiting to see it's awesomeness, hehe...

DeadlyBlondeArcher (edited Mar 22, 2006)
Why, this looks so real I do believe I might faint. *fans self* I don't know how you do it, but I'm sure glad you do and I get to see it.

I wanted to add that one of the things that fascinates me so about this is that it has such strong atmosphere, it looks like very early morning and that it would be cool and humid... I can feel that just by looking at this.
davincipoppalag (Mar 22, 2006)
You are the most meticulous person I know , Niel....well you and Aubrey. Which explains why the two of you do this kind of thing better than anyone.
fleeting_memory (edited Mar 22, 2006)
my God you finally finished him haha-congrats he looks awesome-and if I had to bet money I bet his moustache bothers you ;) hehe just messin with you. Good to see you back in the swing.

edit: where are those extra sunglasses? :)
DeadlyBlondeArcher (Mar 22, 2006)
He's in the swing? Let's push him out! Girls should get to swing! Go to the monkey bars!!!!
davincipoppalag (Mar 22, 2006)
You're too young to be hanging around in bars fulla monkeys...
Lenwe (Mar 22, 2006)

Opium (Mar 23, 2006)
I thought this was done! Dang...that's so awesome!
Gigandas (Mar 23, 2006)
FM-The mustache does kinda bother me, but that's how it is in the screen cap and I thought making it look naturalistic would kinda ruin the 'Rude' face, so I chose to keep it that way. I think his suit kinda bothers me a bit which I might go back and touch up some more, though.

Thanks everyone :).
DoOp (edited Mar 24, 2006)
d-man is you! :D rude is the best ever, he pwns all!! wahhaa :D great great great etc job on this! @_@ if i drew like you, my hands would be godly :)
Gigandas (Mar 23, 2006)
