FF VII: Before Christmas

(Sigh - the fact that this is just a modification of copyrighted work means it can't be a 'deviation' proper. But I poured my soul into it, man!)

This is my christmassy modification to that beautifully executed 'Final Fantasy VII: Before Crisis' image that's all over the place. It was meant to be a simple "add hats, change background" thing for my version of a christmas e-card, but I got a bit carried away.

Full list of changes:
-Changed outfits to more christmassy colours
-Put Sephiroth in a Santa outfit
-Added santa hats
-Changed background, added snow in bg and fg
-Changed batons into candy sticks
-Changed pistols into waterpistols! (kind of)
-Changed rifley weapons into presents
-Added mistletoe to Seph's big sword to make it more friendly looking
-Added modified version of the Advent Children logo (since the lettering 'Before Christmas' fit that a lot better than the actual 'Before Crisis' logo)

All characters and FF type malarkey are totally the property of Square Enix, and all that.

:rofl: I saw Seph and I immediately busted out laughing! :lmao: GREAT JOB!!

I wonder what Tseng's saying? "Yes. Mm-hmm. I have to go, we need to give orphans presents. ...Yes, I'll be home for christmas snuggles, Rufus. I love you, too." perhaps? XDD

It's great to see this coming back into season and people enjoying it!

Anyone can snag this as a wallpaper, you don't need to ask. The hats did present an interesting challenge that I hadn't anticipated when I first had the idea. I toyed with the idea that they would flatten their hair a bit before donning the hats, but that just felt wrong. Just look at those spikes! The hats didn't stand a chance.
hahaha whoa!
this is pretty freaking sweet, i love it!
you certainly did pour your heart and soul into it. cuz it shows ^_^
nice work. early merry christmas to ya.

Thats fantastic. I especially like Sephiroth with the father-christmas outfit- although I'm not sure I'd want him coming down my chimney!!!
