Cut-paper commission for :iconjsheaisaninja:!

I almost always enjoy the designs of Final Fantasy characters (even/especially when they are ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS), but I never before appreciated how...

...COMPLICATED...

THESE OUTFITS...

ARE....

:lies down to die, no one can help, Ashe why do you even need those things on your arms what purpose to they serve, corsets on your shins, cuffs but no pants??? whyyyyyy:

But! I am very proud to have completed a commission with the largest number of individual little pieces I've ever done. :D






[EDIT] Oh my gosh, thank you so much for the DD! :happybounce:

This. Is. Amazing. I'm in love with this piece. The skill you have with cut paper is incredible. The amount of emotion and movement you've captured is so stunning. FFXII fanart is less common than art from some of the other games, and yet the designs are quite beautiful (albeit complicated, as you pointed out). The little detail in Fran's lace-like (WHY?) armor is beautifully executed. Bravo!

I would appreciate it if you could give me some advice on my own work, even if it is pretty different.

Thank you very much for the kind comment! ^_^ I'm glad you like my portrayal of the (exceedingly complicated but exceptionally beautiful) character and costume designs. (It was a great moment when I figured out I could just use lace for Fran's armor, instead of cutting out all those... tiny... little... pieces....)

As for your work, I'm really impressed by all the different styles you've tried out! My favorite was "Gaia", where you combined several different materials for some wonderful effects (that inkwork looks so cool!), but I also really enjoyed your more minimalist pieces, like "Pervade" and your posters for Open Mike night. Advice-wise, I'd just say to keep working, keep trying different things, and keep looking into different combinations of materials you enjoy. :)

Thank you for the compliments; I'm very glad you enjoyed my work! :) I took a peek through your gallery. I like how vibrant and bold your color palettes are!

Lots of thanks for the peek! I thought I was doing too much Black and White so I decided to add some markers, which are bold. When I use colors, I try to be forward with the usage. There's nothing wrong with Black Grey and White. But just a splash of crimson or blue seems to make the piece pop just a bit more. I hope to graduate to more colors and shades within the following year.

I cannot believe this is made of paper! The detailing is absolutely phenomenal, Penelo's lace and the leg armor stuff on Fran and Ashe is ridiculously intricate! I am completely in awe of your patience!

And here i thought i was the only one who realized how annoyingle over detailed the character designs of final fantasy characters are.
From my twitter a few weeks ago:
"Okay, whoever the hell designed Lightnings outfit in ff13-2, **** YOU. It is IMPOSSIBLE to draw! Too many freaking details! TOO MANY!!"
