Anima of Hell

"Anima of Hell"
(Original Character)

Part two of the intended cover illustration for an artbook I never completed.
This one didn't turn out quite as well as its counterpart picture, but am still fond of some of the effects. Once again, though, the edging was still a mistake, but even more-so with this piece, since the black shows up a lot more of the paler colors. Oh well. If I ever redo these, I'll be sure to add a bit of a bleed.

Anima of Heaven

"Anima of Heaven"
(Original Character)

Part one of an intended cover illustration for an artbook I was going to compile, however got scrapped when I was no longer able to do the rest of the illustrations for it due to my computer crapping out. :P
I still really like how this piece turned out, though, in retrospect, I shouldn't have done the "painted edging", since -when cropped- cuts too far in on the face, in particular...

Seventh Heaven

"Seventh Heaven"
(Tifa Lockhart from Final Fantasy VII Advent Children)

While it's rare for me to do a picture like this for sheer sexuality, I feel this one achieved it with some fine class. I did the final layout to look similar to the promo images for FFVIIAC. While not perfect, I still think it's got a nice fun look to it, which is quite contrasting to Tifa's character and role in the movie...

The Demon of Elru

"The Demon of Elru"
(Id and Weltall-Id from Xenogears)

The second one I did in the same style as Awakening. This one's aesthetics pleased me much more, with the back-lit Weltall-Id making a much more intimidating appearance than the Weltall's almost thoughtful look on the previous picture. Id, on the other hand, I did not pull off as well as I had hoped, in retrospect. And, once again, both suffer from lack of understanding their designs. Something that I can easily rectify with the Xenogears Perfect Works in my hands...

(Fei Fong Wong, Weltall, and Id from Xenogears)

When I finally came around to doing Xenogears fan art, I had apparently had the concept in mind to do them in the style of Shukoh Murase's works for New Mobile Report Gundam Wing. Not a bad, thing, though,as the composition really compliment's the game's feel. I just wished I had better references when I did this, as aside from Fei, nothing else is quite right about this. I was extremely pleased with the shading I did on the Weltall, however, even if the colors aren't right...
