For those of you whom keep up to date with my postings, you'll know that drawing humans is a rarity for me. Even more rare is fanart.

But this piece.. It had to be drawn. No two ways about it.

I recently invested the money in buying a (used) copy of Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII. I'm way behind the powercurve, I know. sue me. However, whent he game was first released, I wasn't too convinced it was worth my investment. After hearing some completely wild accolades about the game, I had to get it.

And so I've spent the last few weeks pouring religiously over my PSP in the desperate attempt to unlock the mysteries behind the mysterious black haired hero.

Makou.. Pretty much to Final Fantasy 7 what Eco is to the world of Jak and Daxter.. I'd have to say that if Sake were to ever be used in a FF7 RP, she'd likely be infused with Makou. Why? Because I enjoy having freaks for characters. Cliche or not, stuff it.

This image came about after browsing DA for other Zack/Cloud fanart, and it stuck with me, taunting me. infact, this image was so wanting to be drawn, it distracted me completely from daily life.

here it is.

A SOLDIER's most prominant feature is the eerie glow of the Makou infused eyes, far more vibrant and brilliant than a normal persons eyes.

Perhaps the only complaint my family had was that cloud's hair wasn't yellow enough. Oh well :D I had fun with my black paint and colored pencils. nuff said.

Hope yall enjoy fanarts. :D

I. Love. this. Picture. you can expect more ff7 fanart in the coming weeks. I am quite literally OBSESSED right now. my love of the game has found new fuel for the fire and I'm hungry for more. I especially love the brotherly relationship Square shows Cloud and Zack having. I want to build on that more. great characters :D

I might have said something here earlier, but I came back again to look, and I've finely seen the full version. It's epic! I myself have finished the FF7 Crisis core game (Four times twice on hard). Trust me, once you learn how the different materia can be chained together in rapid fire succesion. It's fun to chain Quake, jump and your favorite elemental blade. Even twister could be thrown in (I've death twister)

I cant say i'm that advanced :x Icant' beat the game once on hard. the final boss keeps handing me my ass on a silver platter D:<!

The best skill chain for him. Is this set. Firaga, Thundaga blade, Curaga,
Blizaga,
Deathtwister
Save your mana for the whole fight focus one using death twister and nothing else until his sword hits the ground. Than let loose with Thundaga blade. Firaga and the others well be purely for when you need to take out single other enemies. Rinse lather and repeat.

I've beaten the game before
but that was with raw power. I also managed to skip half the final dungeon. am likely going to go back and fight those
Skyfangs-aprentice's avatar
I did it at lvl 45 on hard and 60 on easy. I got quite good at dodging. The easiest part was actualy Genisis. Sephi was relativly easy for me. I did skip a good chunk of the last dungeon to.
