I haven't been able to draw anything seriously these months because of academic reasons, ARGH! So my mood took a high when I was able to just sit down for a good day and draw. PS 7.0 (NO CS STILL!!!)

[EDIT]: A few people have mentioned this, so I'm going to mention it formally. :P My main muse for this was that one absolutely perfect shot of AC Cloud (on his motorcycle perhaps?) in the AC trailer. I was reluctant to say it before because I secretly wanted someone to comment, "Hey that looks somewhat like Gaara (Naruto)". *bangs head* But I'm terrible close to just drawing a flatout Gaara fanart.

wow, everything is so beautiful *u//_//u*amazing!
Lilliath Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2008
soooooooow beautiful :heart:
It could really be Gaara... but when I first saw the pic I thought about a vampire-character (because the skin looks just *flawless* :heart: ) from a novel, called "twilight" which I'm currently reading... and loving ^^

The perspective of this pic is interesting and colours + shading looks beautiful.
The overall colours look beautiful together. :heart:
This. Is absolutely wicked awesome. In all my weirdness, I say: I really like her lips ... that prolly stems form the fact that I can't draw lips. *favorites*

so beautiful, so mysterious! i love this so much. there is so much drama in her expression; the tension, the attention.... what the heck is goin on there? the more i stare at her the more i want to know and yet. nothing happens!
acousticaltrance Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2007
Amazing job! I adore the tattoos. That'd be kinda fun to cosplay or something...

Anywho, I read the artist's comment about how Cloud's shot in the AC trailer inspired you. I love that shot... Um, but that's not the point! *is trying to focus* It kinda has the calming feel of the picture, but he reminds me more of how I pictured the shade Durza from Eragon (if you've read it O.o) to look.

Right, so, I stop mumbling now! (Awesome pic! *faves*)

I love the eyes. To me, they seem curious, yet as if they expected whatever it is that they are looking at. Nicely done!!

A few mentioned before....HOT eyes. I love the perspective chosen.
SailorQuatre Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2006
Oh, I like. *nodnods* When I saw the thumbnail in your gallery I thought it looked a might Gaara-ish. Seeing it full viewed, it reminds me of a D&D druid. ^^; I love the background. It reminds me of the woods in AC, all glowy and white. *_*
FawkesFeather Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2006
wow. I love this picture. just...WOW. *goggles* I saw it (only just now) and thought "hmm, Gaara? nah...but it's pretty anyways!" and after reading your edit, I will say, whoops. *sheepish giggle* I love the angle and the markings and the look on his face and HIS FACE (in general...because Gaara is awesome and you've drawn him so nicely) and the light...and...and... *brain overloads with too many words* @.@
before I keel over, I'm going to stop commenting. but I love it. seriously. Gaara is one of my favorite characters and to find one that looks so FREAKING awesome...this made my night. =D
suzumetori Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2006   General Artist
hauntingly beautiful. Wow. Okay, wow. I love everything about this picture - the angle, the shadows, the design of the markings on the face.... incredible (it doesn't hurt that gaara and final fantasy rock my world - the hint of both in this picture makes this just that much more cool. Which, considering how cool this is, is like... beyond cool. I need a new word for this type of picture that means uber-awesome.)

Wow, wow, wow. This is going in my favorites, and is going to be my background now for a while.... **attaches self to image and never lets go** ^^;;

ooohhhh... and a friend of mine has CS... and also has 1 gig of ram... and it runs slow still... bad program... hee hee
FlolovesGIR Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2005
HHHaaaaa... i was thinking... wow that does look super similar to that Cloud scene from Advent Children... i was thinking before even reading your description... but hey, your's works good too! yeaaaahhhhh
Kendra-Paige Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2005   Photographer
Yeah, I was about to say it looked incredibly like AC Cloud, before I read the description.

It's strange how just a pose can still make it look like someone, even if it really doesn't.
Tcsei Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2005
Lol, believe it or not, a thought about Gaara did pop into my head when I saw this pic. Having known about your (scary-good) talent at drawing Naruto/anime characters from your gallery, it made me pause when i saw this pic. Very good, yes, but also vaguely reminiscent of another red-haired Naruto character for which you seem to have a bit of a fancy.

You know what, I think it's that people probably did associate this pic w/Gaara, but dismissed it as a fleeting thought because it's not as straightforwardly obvious as some of your other real-life pieces.

Good job anyway though.
moespinel Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2005  Hobbyist General Artist
ahahaha.... I did think of Gaara when I first saw this, It's because of his eyes. It's perfect!
