Copic Commission for Copic.com/Brazil :iconcopicbrasil:

I think I've spent almost 80% of my energy today just for finished painting the background *spirited away*. Anyway, this is the commission I've done for Copic.com/Brazil (for Brazilians, here is the website [link] ).

...btw, just noticed later that his sword is a little bit short T___T" uuuhhhhhhh, I'm really sorry for all Cloud's fans OTL....

Here is the interview page that I've got with them


Enjoy guys!! >:- ) !!!

You drew this with copics?! o.o!!!
It's beautiful....I painted Sephiroth once on a huge sheet of cardboard, cut him out, and made him stand outside on the ground...right now he's standing in front of my window, silhouetted in the morning light...kinda creepy if you walk in one morning and just see that >w<
His sword's not as long as it should be because I ran out of cardboard, but I think he turned out okay! ^w^
