I was looking through some REALLY old files again when I found this fella.
Cloud Strife from FFVII was my first try at coloured pencils 5 years (!!!) ago and was one of my very first submissions posted at deviantART...! I drew it as an x-mas present for my elder brother who introduced me to Final Fantasy VII in 1997. If it weren't for him, I wouldn't have drawn any of these Final Fantasy portraits which kind of became my trademark back in 2007.
It's still one of my favourite games and honestly; I prefer the good old designs over the new (Advent Children) ones, although their 3D renders are pretty epic too.
So I decided to fix the original scan and resubmit it. The original file which I posted 5 years ago, can be found here
Drawn from the original design by Tetsuya Nomura, obviously!
Fun times. I should finish my drawing of Zack AT LAST. DDDDD: *tssk tssk*
