Strife-FFVII- by nanami-yuki Strife-FFVII- by nanami-yuki
I don't have much time for DA lately~~School is killing me*_*!!!!

Anyway, this is a commission of Cloud. I rarely get commissions on copyrighted characters, so I enjoyed drawing this one(who doesn't like to draw Cloud!?). The instructions were very simple. He wanted Cloud in my style drawn in the pose on the official art.
here is the first step: [link] (the lineart)
the second step: [link] first layer of color)

Amazing. I know what I'm talking about when it comes to FF7 and I have to say this is on of the best portraits of Cloud I've seen in a long time.
You should be proud. Draw more

The Blood bothers me... Not the fact that it's blood, but that I can't decide whether it was requested with the blood to look as though Cloud had shielded himself from it or that he struck out at someone... I favor the first...

Me too,I can't imagine Cloud lashing out at someone...It's just not in his character.

Wow, this looks so much like the original thing, except a slightly modified pose, it's cool how you shortened the hair to make it more realistic, I don't really like the huge, incredibly pointy hair style. Incredible colouring - great use of lighter and darker colours to match lighting/shading, the blood effects on his Buster Sword look great too. Sorry if this sounds offensive, but in my opinion, his right eye (the eye to the left for us) looks as if its a little too far away from the other eye, or, thats what I believe anyhow (sorry). This is a very, very good piece, I'm not suprised it has so many views and favourites, on a final note - due to seeing Cloud Strife in his new costume in Advent Children (I can't wait for that movie), I don't really like the appearance of his old costume (no, I'm not saying "Omg u shouldn't of done that for this piece LOL" or anything, its just another silly opinion of mine, no offense), I just reckon the black 'biker' looking costume makes him look more.. dark, mysterious and intimidating.

Overall, -excellent- piece, great fanart - keep it up! :D
