Cloud Strife:1st Class Soldier by Negshin Cloud Strife:1st Class Soldier by Negshin
Sorry for re-uploading this but I really couldn't let it be in that horrible unfinished state... especially with this crazy amount of faves o___O

Thank you all very much :glomp:

But yeah, here's Cloud again, re-touched with all the initial plans I had for it but didn't have the time to do. I hope the composition makes more sense now.
I'm deactivating the critic option, not because I didn't find it useful [which of course I did otherwise you wouldn't have had me finishing this so thank you everyone :heart:], I just really don't have any more time to spend on it even if I did know the errors ^^;

Many thanks to everyone for visiting ^^

P.S. Oh and just because so many people have commented on the title, I think I should explain my choice a little bit. Due to the design I had come up with, it mostly refers to the bit at end of Crisis Core where Cloud jumps on the train and calls himself a 'Soldier: First Class' ^^

Ok, this is going to be my first critique, I'm curious how it works :lol:

You'll always be my art god, Nusha-bby, no matter what you draw it always looks awesome :heart: I wish I could use colors like you do!
I love the way you do hair and highlights... Oh the softness of the background, so pretty~
Also - the fact that your pieces have lineart and still are dimentional is amazing! What's the secret behind that, I will never know :ohnoes:

Okay, I just set up my shrine for you but where is the critique?! XD
Isn't there something wrong with the leg or... perspective? I think his thigh should be longer in comparison to the shin (?) I hope that's howyoucallit, excuse my English
That'd be it, as for critique X'D *lame*

What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR

I'm not too good with critique and I hope you don't take anything I say the wrong way
truth be told I just wanted to test the "add a critique" thingy XD since I rarely find it (actually first time I find it on another artist's deviation xD)
Anyway , the first thing that popped into my eyes was the leg, maybe it's because of the very dark shading or dunno maybe it's the perspective you were aiming for , but the leg looks way too long. I'm assuming it's the left leg if it's not then some things would make sense but then others wouldn't. like if it was the right leg then the height and position would somewhat make more sense but then the part that connects to the rest of the body (sorry I'm not too good with words) would be too sudden. Sorry if I don't make any sense xD.
Besides that I love it. I love the background , it looks fine as it is although if you had time to add more detail it'd look even more awesome , I really love the clouds from behind Cloud and love how you highlighted his hair <3 Great effect really like the hair and the metal plate thingy on his shoulder and the sword looks good tho' yea a bit more sparkle would make it even better I agree ^_^ oh and I like the color composition too <3
