Where Is My Mind by RadiusZero
Where Is My Mind
Title is based on the Pixies' song . :meow: Woo, really happy I completed one more piece before my convention next week. Of course, it had to be another FF7 piece; this time of Cloud Strife. Freddy intensifies  It's becoming almost a tradition that any time I paint Sephiroth I gotta follow it up with Cloud. :giggle: Sorry, but I just love these two so much! I'm still excited by the remake news and hope that I see FF7 fans at the convention. So far, I've intentionally avoided any websites/forums/videos discussing remake updates and details, LOL. I really want to play the remake with a blank state, without any expectations. While there were issues I found with the Compilation that I hope the game addresses, I'm just gonna walk into this remake completely blind.

With regards to this pic, I decided to paint something quick and relatively painless. It's a spiritual peace. You all are free to guess which of Cloud's deceased loved ones is coming to him right now. Perhaps Aerith? Zack? Cloud's mother? Or maybe it's the innocent boy who lost everything during the Nibelheim fire? You decide. Sad dummy

So, it was like close to 5 in the morning when I submitted my Safer Sephiroth by RadiusZero piece. I immediately went to bed. I come back and see that over 250+ people faved him while I was asleep for a few hours. :faint: Holy crap! I only expected like 30 faves, especially when it was close to 5 in the mornin' LOL. Holy crapola, Batman! The Sephiroth-force is strong. :omg: It's been such a long time since any of my pieces received that amount of love on upload day. It's a special feeling when you create a piece you nerd all over and others dig it as well. Thank you guys! From the bottom of my heart, guys, thank you! AND LONG LIVE SEPHIROTH. :evillaugh:

I'll be attending San Japan in San Antonio at the end of this month, by the way. Expect 20x30 metallic posters of this bad boy there. :meow: 
Safer Sephiroth by RadiusZero
Safer Sephiroth
Heh, I'm probably among the hundreds of artists who spontaneously shifted gears when news of FF7's remake came to light and did FF7 fan art instead of other important art. Sorry, but I couldn't help myself! I am a dummy! Even when I promised myself to do another original art piece, I abruptly changed the program and did fan art instead. For shame. But really, I had no choice! Oh Noes! The fan nerd in me couldn't resist a legitimate excuse for more FF7 love. :happybounce: And I doubt many FF7 gamers were able to sleep at all that day. Rather, they likely spent the rest of the day watching Youtube reaction videos and the trailer itself for the umpteenth time like I did. Psychotic I can't wait to see the Honey Bee Inn mini-game! I'M GONNA MAKE CLOUD PURTY!!! :eager: by darkmoon3636 

Anyway, I decided to do Sephiroth in tribute to the FF7 remake news. :flirty: Specifically, the Safer Sephiroth version. I kinda liked the idea of creating something so beautiful yet, a bit morbid. This Boss version kinda suited my taste for dark sensual topics. I obviously altered Safer Sephiroth's design, mostly because a bad-ass hottie like Sephiroth shouldn't be sporting a puffy cloud for a crotch. Nope. No siree. Disbelief I also gave the man back his bangs. Because he's Sephiroth. And Sephiroth's bangs should automatically come with the whole package dammit. :shifty: Funny thing about this boss, by the way. When I first played Sephiroth's final form in FF7, I was like, 'Hell yea! This must be the super easy version of Sephiroth since he's SAFER Sephiroth.' :slow: Of course, I soon discovered fighting a boss whose Limit Break alone could destroy an entire galaxy hardly made him 'safe'. Hahahahaha. No.   

All righty, time to shut up. I spent a lot of time on this painting but feel extremely happy about it. I've had a terrible art slump this year and have slowly crawled toward making new stuff. I'm happy I got my groove back, at least long enough to complete this piece.

On a random very nerdy note, seeing this version of Sephiroth makes me want to ship him with Eve from Parasite Eve. Jackdirt I normally ship Sephiroth with Cloud but Eve is definitely a runner-up. :D

PEACOCK by RadiusZero
PEACOCK
Some stuff comes to me in the most unexpected ways (in a Cracker Barrel restaurant of all places :D ). The reason behind it slowly unveiled itself during the process of this. I'd gotten an emotion from it. As I investigated it further I was surprised by what I found.

Younger, I used to think all artists had to come up with a theme/concept prior to working on the piece. But I realized that artists can be explorers too. We can go with our gut instinct, paint the piece, and slowly unravel the meaning of it as we continue to explore that artwork. I won't write what I found here. Rather, I'll let you the viewers come up with your own interpretations. :)

Mameha by RadiusZero
Mameha
(UPDATED: I decided to tweaks the colors. I like the colorful look better :) )

Oi, I haven't done art in a whole year. O_O Been writing a lot this year but I really need to kick the art muse into gear. So I started out with an original character I created for one of those fanfic stories. :meow:

Her name is Mameha. No one messes with Mameha. Everyone is afraid of the stone-cold, elegant swordsman who rarely speaks and has a knack at splitting anything that walks or crawls in half. Even with only one eye left, she's every bit of a killing machine people fear. When Mameha does speak, she has nothing but scornful, humiliating words to say. Not a nice woman. :P However, she is one day assigned as mentor for a very special boy. Mameha being Mameha, puts the child through hell. :tears: She is indifferent to his sufferings and constantly challenges him both mentally and physically. Life in the boy's shoes ain't easy. Several times he attempts to run-away. It only worsens his punishments. Still, at the core of Mameha's harsh teachings/rulings are the acts of a motherly figure who wants the boy to endure and thrive. Knowing that the boy dreams of becoming a powerful swordsman like her and wants to fly, Mameha is determined to set him on that path. Even if it costs the female warrior her own life.

I kinda liked the name 'Mameha' a lot, especially when it sounds like 'mama'.

No worries! I've been all over the place and have been slow with replies. But I always check my messages, whether for both my art or art page. :)
