FF Dissidia: Sephiroth by Risachantag FF Dissidia: Sephiroth by Risachantag
So... I might have said something about not doing any more of these. But, well, four seems a rather small number for a set, so I've decided to draw two others who are among my favorite FF Dissidia characters. (you'll have to wait and see who the other is).

Others in this set:
Cloud Strife
Squall Leonhart
Zidane Tribal

Time: 7 hours
Tools: Photoshop CS3 & Wacom Graphire tablet

It's funny you put this piece up recently. It's because I have been listening to different versions of 'One Winged Angel' for the past week now. And indeed I can be put in mind of the song. For one thing; the sun behind Sephiroth. It indeed reminds me of his super destructive summon attack: Super Nova. Those who have survived it and its status effects live on to fight Sephiroth and dare to tell the tale.
The posing is nice, his feet are elevated enough to make it look like he's being lifted off the ground. I think his cloak is billowing too much though to the point where it's spread out a bit too far making it almost look like a dress.
My biggest criticism: his smile. Sephiroth just doesn't seem that menacing here with his smile. I think his brow needs to be furowed more to give him that evil feel. Sure he still looks ominous, but just a minor adjustment to his face can really spell out his menace. His smile just makes him look a little too calm here. A few more billowed out strands of hair would help too.
But overall I really dig this piece. I still think it does Sephiroth justice as one of the most memorable villains..if not Final Fantasy history.
What do you think?

The drawing is a wonderful burst of color with the fire and fits perfectly with Sepheroth's persona. I love the added wing, it's well done and as far as I know, it's very original. The physical appearance is wonderful with the exception of his neck which appears to be a bit too thick. I love the fact that there is a sun behind him also. The only thing that seems wrong about his character or more or less his persona is that he is smiling. From what I've heard Sepheroth never smiles. I've heard he is a very solemn character, that's pretty much it ^^ Over all it's an awesome picture and you did a wonderful job on it.

I just love this pic of Sephiroth he is the best villian ever, not to mention the sexiest, the fire in the backround makes the pic all the more evil looking :)

I agree with the topmost critique; when Sephiroth smiles, you run for cover.
