I think this is how far I'm able to go with this. D: T_T. I don't know. I easily loose patience over my artwork especially when it takes me a lot of time to finish it. I might pick this up again in the future, and finish the things that are done half-heartedly.
Anyhow Aerith really gives me inspiration so I draw her again. XD.
Some may see this like a Zerith fanart but this is very Clerith to me. =}
OH MY GOSH THIS IS SO LATE PLEASE FORGIVE ME SHO-SAMA *crawls into a hole to die*
OMG Zack's sweater just about KILLED me. That's right.... it's HAND-TEXTURED - and those flowers... *shudders* NOT TO MENTION IT TOOK ME AGES TO FINISH..... Whelp, gotta say though, as tough as it was - this one was really fun to paint. Zack and Aerith are two of my fave characters ever, and one of my fave OTPs too.
Done in Easy Paint Tool SAI. Time: Roughly 120 hours.
So I got to the part in FF7 again with date night at the gold saucer. Honestly, in my first two playthroughs, I got Tifa, and then did it again with Yuffie. But I never did the Aeris scene, so after all these years, I saw something new in the game. What Aeris said really broke my heart. She was thinking about Zack all along, and Cloud was just confused. She said that Cloud reminded her of him, even down to his mannerisms. The first concise hint that something is wrong with Cloud. Wah!
So yes, I started this up, trying mightily to avoid black and white, which you know I love, and stick with muted colors. Couldn't help the lightgasm though, that's just in my DNA. Also done without ref, trying to go off how I know them from FF7, because sadly I despise the FF7 eu, especially Advent Children. >_>
