Sephiroth, Glance by BahamutDeusModus Sephiroth, Glance by BahamutDeusModus
Program: Sketchbook Express

It's finished! :dummy: I... I... I like how it turned out, actually... :giggle:
I finally got myself in gear and decided I should finish this picture of him before moving on to something else, so here he is. I feel like it's not perfect, but it's hard for me to draw him out perfectly. I suppose. Next time, maybe?

Edit: Here's a more recent colored drawing of Sephiroth that I've finished: ...Beaten Into My Head by BahamutDeusModus

Aww, thank you very much! :love: :huggle:
I've done a lot more black and white pictures that colored ones; I've only started doing colored ones in the last couple years, so I have a lot more to learn about them.

Oh dear oh dear...my computer is sticky...with blood from my nosebleed. I'm going to take a few moments and look at him in all his smirking glory (in a totally non-creepy way).
You captured his personality very well. His smirk is a bit mocking, but in more of a kind good way :D (Big Grin). It's like he is enjoying the fact that he knows something no one else does, and is acting like he won't tell anyone.
I like the way you drew his hair. You didn't draw every single strand of it, and it holds together and has a sort of cohesiveness. Sometimes I think that Sephiroth's hair is as much of a character as he is...I wind up being very jealous of people who can properly draw his hair like you did, because I've tried to draw his hair several times and kind of got frustrated. Maybe it's the Shinra shampoo?
On the evidence that his bangs seem a bit shorter to me, am I right that this is the Sephy from Crises Core?

*hands you a hanky* Sorry about the nosebleed. :XD:
Wow, thank you so much for the wonderful words! :blush: :huggle: I love how you described his smirk, and yes, this is Sephi from Crisis Core. =) I've had people relate this picture to him being in his 'evil aftermath' time, though I was hoping to show him smirking in his good, slightly arrogant way as he does in CC. So, I'm glad you could see some of that!
And his bangs oftentimes can be troublesome for me to draw, too; they're so unrealistic, but a part of Sephiroth, as you say. :D And I think that unrealism is definitely a cause from the shampoo. What do they put in that stuff?

Heheheh thanks for the hanky *wipes blood off* It's not you who should be saying sorry, it should be Sephiroth.Love 
I like the Sephy from Crises Core better. Especially in that one beautiful cut scene where he fights Angeal and Genesis and basically beats them both at the same time...while smirking:D (Big Grin) ...I love the way he moves gracefully and keeps his aura of calmness the entire time.
I don't know about that shinra shampoo stuff. You remember those monster things who's "mako levels were exponentially higher" that Sephiroth found in the reactor just before Genesis came flying in to tell Sephy he was a monster? Maybe the shampoo was infused with mako and it made Sephy's hair mutate and naturally just have that hairstyle. Or maybe the shampoo was an experiment that Hojo wanted to try out, and has Jenova cells in it. Heh! Maybe Sephy uses it on his wing too?

Oh, same here, I absolutely loved that fight between Genesis and Angeal (not to mention, it's all CG...!)  Sephiroth can be so cocky it makes me grin. I always think of how fun it would be to banter with him... and talk to him.... and, other stuff :rofl:
And he's definitely a graceful fighter. I think there's a point where he has his eyes closed as he dodges one of their swords. :XD:

:D I love your theory about the shampoo! Maybe it is really powerful stuff. If that's the case, not many people probably use it. Hmm, Jenova cells.... yeah, I don't think I'd want to use it after all. :stare: Just sliiiightly creepy...

Sorry I haven't replied in a while. I was busy plowing snowdrifts of homework out of my room.
That scene is my absolute favorite!
I think I have watched it so many times that all the lines were, well, beat into my head! And their is Sephy and his sexiness almost beating Genesis (who somehow manages to smile even though Sephy has the upper hand). Talking to Sephy, (and especially the other stuff) would be fun...heh heh heh! ;) (Wink) 
Sephy is the only one we here about who is using the shampoo, so maybe he is the only one using it. The reason he has so many fangirls is probably because his hair smells so good. Bliss

No problem! Ugh, snowdrifts of homework? :faint:
Oh, I've watched that scene so many times I'm surprised the game hasn't been frozen on it by now. :giggle: My only wish is that the scene was longer and on a bigger screen! :XD: And the part where Genesis starts taking it too far and catching Sephiroth off-guard, which makes Sephiroth start kind of going out of control as well. Though Angeal manages to snap Sephiroth out of it (love that part).
Specially made shampoo for Sephiroth? :XD: Well, I wouldn't doubt it... either that or it's an expensive shampoo that only a few Shinra employees are able to buy and use. Yeah, his hair is supposed to smell super-good... makes me wish I could smell it.... :drool:

*faint*  Yeh, here I was going about my business, checking out piccys of my favorite hunk and what do I come upon?  THIS ONE!  *swat*  Geez. I'd managed to tear myself away only to return and drool and faint again.  You should be ashamed.  Really!  :rofl:  I'm writing a fan fic of him currently and this pic...well...let's just say it fits VERY nicely.  *evil smirk*  Gawd I LOVE DIS MAN!  :huggle:  (love you too for sharing your talent!)  Now, if I can manage to stay away for another 4 months I'll be good!  (not-gonna-happen)  :D

Yer most welcome!  :D  Oh, that pic has been in my mind for a while now.  I'm impressed by it (along with the model...ahem).  As for the fan fic...well, the one I'm doing atm which has our beloved Sephy as the main character is not finished (nor likely to be put up on dA because it is AU and the other main character is an OC).  However, it's got quite a few chapters now.  :p  I do have one up which has him in it though.  Angel of Darkness.  If you'd like to take a look, go for it. I like the way it's moving along but some might not. *shrug*

And please tell me, what does AU mean? Oh, I'll certainly have to take a look at the story you have on DA now! :la: As soon as I can... life can be so busy. :D

AU = Alternate Universe

Ah another writer of de Sephy, eh? *evil smirk*  GREAT!  :p  yeh, I'm rather doubtful I'll put this story on dA since it involves an OC and people can be so horrible to OC's. *sigh* anyway, I did make a video tho and included that picture.  In case you're interested, let me know and I'll send you a link to the address (on YouTube).  :hug:

Aha, Alternate Universe! I got it, thanks :XD:

Well, I cannot help but write about Sephi :giggle: Oh, I suppose you're right, some people don't like OC's in already-completed stories. As for me, it just depends. I think if someone puts in an OC so cleverly and they fit into the story, then it's a success. However, I find it hard to read fanfics with OC's that completely disrupt the storyline of the original. Hmm, I guess it's because if I loved the original story, and someone's going to put another character in it, I'd rather them make the story what it was and perhaps even better, than alter in completely (and the characters within the story). When I write a fanfic, I try to make any OC's fit in flawlessly. Of course... it won't always work. :giggle: Oh, a video... with my picture? :? If you did, may I ask that you link something back to my original picture so people know the artist? I would like to take a look at the video, as long as my internet lets me. :aww:

:iconarchonproject:
archonproject Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I'm not sure how successful I have been with slipping my OC "seamlessly" into the story but then again it wasn't my concentration to stick strictly to the original story.  That is, my idea went more along the lines of 'what-would-happen-if' rather than what actually happened, which is why its considered AU.  ;)

As for the video, well of COURSE I credited you!!  I credit all people's work I use in videos or any other creative/artistic ideas I put up for public viewing anywhere.  It's only fair after all.  YOU did the work so you should take the credit.  The video I did, I merely used the picture in the video but you were credited, along with quite a few others from dA.  ;)  Cloud x Sephiorth - Somebody To Die For Let me know what you think of it, eh?

Well, in the case of AU, I suppose you really can't stick to the original story :giggle: But the thing I like to see the most is that the original characters in the story are the same, as in they have the same personalities and whatnot. =) Aw, thank you! :love: I thought I'd might as well ask, since I'm wanting to get my name out there somehow. And I was able to see some of the video (I found my picture :XD:), but not all of it because of my stupid internet browser... -_- I need to update it badly. But I must say, Cloud and Sephi sure are a popular yaoi couple, aren't they? :D

What's funny is the first time I saw him and anything to do with FFVII was when I watched Advent Children after it first came out. :D

Yeh, I have to agree. CC showed him at his best. AC just made me want to smack him...but he wasn't himself (which is probably why I didn't like him in AC as much).
I have the director's cut of AC on my computer. It's a pathetic admission I know, but I watch it just so I can hear "that voice" sometimes. *wistful sigh* Wow...can we say -fangirl-? /facepalm

I both want to smack him in AC and then I just feel really, really sad. I can't hardly watch the movie without getting those feelings... -_- Since just before AC he gives away all his memories from before the Nibelheim Incident, he's truly not who he was in CC and he doesn't even remember. He needs someone there for him in CC.
:D Ehehe, I watched AC tens of times just to see some of his moments. Because I can't help myself... and I do the same with CC, rewatch the scene where him and Angeal and Genesis are in the training room. I kept the save just before that scene so I could watch it whenever... (which I do)

Yeh, I agree on the sadness thing. Didn't until I understood the whole story. When I first saw AC I had no idea any of the backstory or anything. Now however I know it all and yeh, definitely makes me want to do some mangling/smacking of evil ShinRa and Hojo and how they manipulated people and...yeh. I'll stfu about that before I go into a rant. *ahem*
Ohyeh...I've got CC and DoC and AC all on video, (all cut scenes from the games bound together to make movies) and watch em on a 'regular' basis. Just love the whole thing. *wistful sigh* Too bad SE isn't going to do more movies about FFVII. I mean really...it would be so great, so epic and sooooo many fans out there waiting in hopes. *tsks* Damn. Alas, we'll all have to just make do with fan fic and daydreams. :P

:iconbahamutdeusmodus:
BahamutDeusModus Featured By Owner May 7, 2013  Professional General Artist
Same here; AC was the first thing I saw that was a part of FFVII's world so I didn't understand much of it.
Oh yes, I could give Hojo a punch or two.... actually, I don't even want to go near the guy, so instead, I'll just push him off the Sister Ray with a large pole.
Oh, I see. That'd be a little fun to just watch all the cutscenes, but I do enjoy the games. I just wish there was so much more in CC... I wasn't nearly satisfied with that game, though I do love it. I think SE should do a movie sequel of DoC, perhaps, and then do another game detailing all of Sephiroth, mostly his past (he'd be your main character). But of course, the latter is more of a personal wish of mine, so I doubt it'd be made into a game. I can still dream about it and hope, I suppose! :la:
Ah, I write my own fanfic... but I still want more games in that world! They should just get on the ball and remake VII already.

I know it may sound strange, but I prefer pictures of him like this. Yes, the sexy pics are nice every now and then but...they're also not him, not really.

Within this work, I feel like I'm looking at him. I can see the cold arrogance, the simple knowing the world is his. His anatomy is spot on and doesn't seem too out of proportion. I can tell the time was invested carefully and definitely well worth it. This is how the Devil of Wutai should look.:)

Thank you very much for such a nice comment! :love: It did take me a while to get this picture right (or close enough), but whenever it's Sephiroth, that's to be expected of me. :D Actually, this picture of him is drawn before the Nibelheim Incident, so technically he doesn't know about Jenova and isn't trying to take over the world yet :giggle: However, he still likes to smirk at his best friends. Because he's so arrogant... (I love that part of him regardless... :XD:)
