Cause you can be the world's greatest hero, and still be afraid of spiders.
I have not drawn these two in agggesssss. A quick coloured sketch of my number one OTP. I posted this on my tumblr last night, i made some edits and stuff so this one looks a bit "better" than the ones the guys at tumblr reblogged. For those who are curious, my tumblr is here: lapoin.tumblr.com/
This scene was inspired by something that happened IRL when one of my guy friends freaked out when he saw a spider. Man what a wuss lol
I see you're definitely trying something new with the overall shading, the body proportions, eyes, and the overall look for Aeris and Cloud. It kinda reminds me of some colouring styles I've seen in the past-- but I can't quite put my finger on it. The hair and their faces are nicely detailed and it really shows how they're feeling. (Well, mostly Aeris-- because it's easy to figure out what she's thinking from her eyes. lol) and Cloud's hair looks like a mix of his original FF7 hair and his Advent Children hairstyle, while adding your own into it. It doesn't look like it was quick sketch at all, either. o:
For some reason, I like how you added the colour of their eyes to their eyelashes. To me, it gives me the impression that everything around them is nice and vibrant and their eyes give off a kind of glow that's hard to miss. And you really like drawing Kh2 Aeris it seems. xD
My main problems with it are how Aeris' spaghetti straps and shoulders are positioned, and the top of the outfit, and possibly the hands. The straps look like it's around a very small, dainty neck. (or I think it gives the illusion of it being so.) The top of the outfit looks like she would be positioned further to the right. Because from the look of her left shoulder that Cloud is on-- her position from neck to the top is straight, but the collarbones looks like it's being pointed to her left. Her neck should be drawn to at least where her collarbones should be from him supporting his weight of his head and shoulders onto her. Due to the way of her right hand is positioned-- it would look like she's trying to support Cloud's arm, but in a way that would also hurt herself. (As in, because of her shoulders and body, her right arm that is supporting Cloud's arm would have her elbow further to her back while trying to twist her hand to help him. It would kinda be an awkward position for her arm.) Her left hand is fine.
Sorry if you don't want a critique aaaaa ;n; I'm just kinda used to doing that. xD
Yeah i decided to study some basic anatomy lol Not sure about colouring styles though since there is only a handful of colouring styles you can do. And thank you i didnt spend quite some time on this sketch so im glad you think it doesnt look like one :>
And yeah, i like Aerith's outfit from KH2 the best, thats why i draw it often.
Im not really sure about the straps thing that your talking about. But Clouds right hand is positioned over her right shoulder, and that is not Aerith's left hand but Clouds left hand. Shes also not supporting his hand, she's gently putting her fingers over his arm so yeah you are right, her elbows are further back. It doesnt actually hurt, i tried it myself lol
Haha, that's good. :> you seem to be catching on pretty fast. Yeah that's true. xD About the colouring styles-- when I looked at Cloud's hair, it kinda reminded me of the PS3 Atelier games and how the artist shaded the characters hair. No problem :>
I can see why, KH2 Aeris is really pretty. I wish I could draw Aeris in more than one outfit, but I just stick with the original one.
I might have to do a red-line so I could see something about the straps, but it's probably just me though. 6_6;;
Ah, thank you for the correction. :> Yeah, I had to do the arm pose again and it doesn't hurt. I think I might have done it more awkwardly than it was intended lol.
I'm not 100% sure what Atelier is either, but all I know is that it's a JRPG and the art is great. So yeah, it's a good thing. xD
And I also love how they added so much detail to her model. The way they did her curls are really pretty. It looks like they really put a lot of love onto her model. And I liked how they made her look more realistic looking, while still looking cartoony compared to the KH1 Aeris. As for Tifa, I wish they would've used her original or amano outfit. The model looked really oddlooking to me--maybe it was her arms or lack of gloves?
Dissidia dress? You mean the Amano outfit? That outfit looked really nice and suits Aeris very well. I'm glad they showed Cloud and Tifa's Amano outfits too. :> But I'm surprised that Tifa shows a lot of back in her Amano outfit. Sucks that Aeris isn't playable but only an assist character. But luckily someone is making a mod of Aeris being playable with a unique moveset if they haven't finished it already.
