FF - be my Valentine by Cataclysm-X FF - be my Valentine by Cataclysm-X
'I let the one I loved,
the one I respected most,
face the worst.

Beautiful Lucrecia...'

(from FFVII - 1997)


I know lots of you saw this coming but...
this is my way of celebrating Valentine's Day, LOL.
I'm currently replaying FFVII again. So much luv. <3

Yay for my 5th drawing of Vincent, lol. No, I'm not addicted.

Vincent: '...freak' :paranoid:

Shut up x)

The bad thing -or things- is that I ran out of paper so I had to use something else. It was really hard to create something on this stuff.
Besides (and this is the worst):
I was experiencing an artblock for more than 2 weeks now. And I wanted to draw something so bad...

Then finally it happened: I got my muse back. Well...

Yesterday, LOL :ohnoes:

So I've been working my bum off to get this done!!!!

Right now I don't really care if there are mistakes in this picture. Especially since the fact I had to make up 50% of this drawing, the rest was taken from a reference image!


Stuff I used:
  • 4H, 2H, H, HB, B, 2B & 3B mechanical pencils

  • 5B & 6B regular pencils

  • reference picture + imagination

  • patience O_O

  • Time spent: Too much...

    Drawn in 1,5 days xD
    And the answer to your question is:
    yes, my hand fell off once I was done.

    Vincent Valentine is copyrighted to Square Enix... and secretly to me as well, but don't tell anyone <3


    You guys HAVE to watch this video if you want to hear Vincent (his real voice actor) singing the most hilarious song.

    At least I had to laugh out so incredibly loud :D

    Here it is ----> the best damn video you've ever seen

    oh vincent *sigh*
    `cataclysm-x, your sketches are not sketches - they are black and white photographs, with photoshop quality highlights and real life textures.
    I also use pencil, and somehow I feel measurably better for knowing that you can do this kind of thing with pencils. (i also feel slightly depressed, but it's a good kind of depressed, to be sure; i will try harder knowing something like this is achievable)
