Sephiroth - Mako Glare by Cataclysm-X Sephiroth - Mako Glare by Cataclysm-X
I'm SO having a love/hate affair with this drawing!!!

Sephiroth from the game Crisis Core. In the beginning I really liked to draw this picture, but in the end I felt like pulling my hair out of my head.

'But... why!!', you say?

Because the paper kept tearing apart when I
1) wanted to blend the pencillines and;
2) wanted to erase just a few lines.
In real life this so looks like crap, lol.
Hurray for Photoshop's magic tricks' box! :3


Sephiroth: '...........'


Made this for my dear dA friend *Jumei as an arttrade. She made me a wonderful Vincent Valentine which I'll treasure forever!!!!!!!
Be sure to check her awesome gallery too. I'm sure you'll :heart: it.


Sephiroth: '...........'


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

  • 6B regular pencil

  • ref from FF:CC

  • the worst quality A5 paper like... I don't know...EVER?!?

  • Time spent: approx... 9 hours


    Sephiroth: '......I'm too sexy for my-' :sing:

    Don't you dare to sing that song!!!!!!!

    Sephiroth: '...sorry...'


    Work in progress can be found here:
    WIP 1
    WIP 2


    ...and dA... I'll kill you if you move this to my scraps, like you did to some of my other artworks... :salute:


    Okay, time to do something really interesting for some of my dear dA friends... :D

    I'm wondering if i'm the only one who got caught in his eyes and hypnotized by them until someone had to shake me back to sense.

    Well.. as i can read your feelings about this drawing... You had the same problems with drawing Sephiroth than I have right now -.-. Drawing him makes depressive. Good to know that amazing artists like you have problems with drawing... But at least, your drawing looks fantastic :P
    How did you go over in drawing his skin?

    I love his expression. Cat, you are just too good. You make me feel like my drawings are even more mediocre than I already know they are.

    I love the lights and shadows in it, you once again showed so much detail. *bows down to you*

    As soon as I'm done browsing through your gallery, I am SO watching you. :)
