Sephiroth Fanart: Dawn by Zureul Sephiroth Fanart: Dawn by Zureul
A part of my AC package.

I preperation for this piece. I read through 200 pages of colour theory, watched 2 videos on colour picking, so I was trying to put all that knowledge and theory to the test with some AC fanarts.
Ahhh I had fun watching Advent children over and over and over and over to review the atmosphere for this piece.

I have been experimenting with using more textures in painting. Hardly alot of the texture are shown here....oh well I will work harder on the next one.


Started from zero to finish all in photoshop. 30 hours.
Extra critiques and enhancement by Spindash. Thx.


Next stop, Cloud~

I love so many things about this piece, I can't quite pinpoint what, exactly, it is that makes me so happy. You've captured everything beautifully.

You know, I just realized what was missing all the Sephiroth fanart.....THEY ALL FORGET THE EYESHADOW AND RIDICULOUS EYELASHES. I'm not even kidding.

There are a couple of things on Sephiroth's outfit you forgot to put on. Besides that it's a damn good pic.

Why are his eyes pink? Or is that just the tint the picture's supposed to have?

its green but the effect of the overall colour makes it look pink. I have had some die-hard sephiroth face chew my face out about this eye colour topic lol.

one of the best fan versions of sephiroth... usually people just mess him up. i guess its hard to draw him in all his coolness/glory. great job here.

how do you draw on the computer, i have tried and it seems almost impossable, i have no clue. all i have is Jasc Paint Shop Pro 9. All I know is how to alter other people images and use em for MSN pics and avatars and stuff. Wanna send me to a good painting prgram, or a program on how to use a painting program.
