FF - KH Leon by Cataclysm-X FF - KH Leon by Cataclysm-X
It's Leon, baby :D :XD:

I was looking at my poll, and saw the following results:
- 21% Final Fantasy
- 19% Something from Imagination
- 18% Kingdom Hearts

So what I did, was drawing a Final Fantasy character in the Kingdom Hearts style, drawn from imagination.
And what do you get?: This :D

And you know, I was trying to draw a serious portrait until it started to look like crap so I scribbled really hard, really bad, and surprisingly enough it began to look pretty neat!

I like the sketchyness in this drawing. :blowkiss:

Excellent pic. The "sketchyness" as you called it adds to the appeal of the image. I am a huge Final Fantasy fan (prefering 7-9 over the others due to mass playage of those 3 lol) and am blown away by this pic. The only problem I have is that you call him Leon. It is a bit of an irk of mine that I hate people calling characters by different names. It is Squall Leonhart. Anyway, sorry about the mini-rant. Lol. Great pic, am just in the middle of checking out your gallery and so far I am very impressed.

Oh god how do you do it?
It's almost agonizing to see how much detail you put into your art pieces. My hands are cramping just thinking about it.
I lurve his expression. I'm jealous that you can draw lips <- I have no skill, whatsoever in that particular area XD.

SwordDemon Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2008
Love the pose, like the origional art but with a twist, familiar but new. And I LOVE sketchy style XD

You do these all w/ pencil? Do you have a tut or something? I'd love to do something like this, but it seems like pencil would be too faded when it got scanned....

this is utterly amazing, such detail and shading that makes this image pop to life. Leon is one of my favorite characters.
angelwingedemon Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2008
Squall/Leon has always been one of my fav characters, but since he's not as popular as some of the other FF characters *cough*sephy/cloud*cough* it's hard to find good fanart of him...this is amazing though, well done!

aww thank you!

I agree, there's not much Squall fanart around here, and I really liked him in KH so I drew it that way :)

This is beautiful! (okay please dont laugh at me, because I know exactly how this is going to sound, >_< but this looks almost just like my boyfriend lol but there is a reason we call him Squall) But seriously this is one of the best pictures of Squall I have ever seen where it was ment to look realistic. :+fav:
Cataclysm-X Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2008  Professional Traditional Artist
LoL whoa I wish I could see your boyfriend :D Squall's a nice looking guy!!!

Thank you :)
HideTheDecay Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
Bleh. I prefer him so much more in Final Fantasy VIII. Fantastic drawing still. Oooh...I'd love you see you draw him as he looked in FF, haha. Seriously doubt that'll ever happen though. XD. But you've just gotta love that leather outfit...

I like the sketchyness
I've been meaning to do a Squall sometime...
He's my favourite main character from FF but I have a feeling that could change to Lightning/Storm from FFXIII XD
Emerald-Latias Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2007
Wow, it looks so detailed and life-like that you could swear that it's what Squall/Leon would look like if he were a real person. Awesome! I've definitely fav-ing this.
