Hey loves! XD This is nothing much. I wanted to practice poses a little and I modeled this after a very clear reference that I'll try to remember to link up here tomorrow. I have a list to post by now, sorry about that! XD
It was a bodybuilder pic of a thick, hulky guy but you know, I love my Seph lean and lithe and all.
The background is just to complete the pic really, including my weird Shinra tower (side view. XD) I did that today at work as a last minute decision.
At first, it was meant to be as if someone was ordering Sephy to stand at attention for them, be physically at their disposal. You can see how Seph feels about that, the darkness rolling in behind him symbolizing his mood. Then that idea about how he might start to feel about his world and the tower being a part of that darkness struck and so I decided to make that weird barren waste outside of Midgar look a little more promising in contrast, like 'this way to your freedom' perhaps.
I hope the tension in the muscles comes through a little. The bodybuilder guy was shiny, perhaps oiled up, but considering Seph is standing outside in the wind, I thought that might be a little weird. XD
I guess the practice here for me was:
-the strong pose
-hair in motion
-Seph's face practice as it's really a gamble over whether it comes out right or not. I think I get super-weird about him because i do like him so much but I get weird about all my faves that way. Seph's just the most obvious. XDedit: Here are my reference pics for this:
- Someone posted a really great pic of the Shinra Tower here. (Don't know if it's gameplay or personally modeled but it's awesome and it helped me a lot as most of the pics I could see are at night. In this one, I could really see the shapes. <3)
Anyways, hope you likie! XD
