FFCC Zack: IRASHAIMASE- by axl99 FFCC Zack: IRASHAIMASE- by axl99
First stage WIP - axl99.deviantart.com/art/GUESS…
Walkthrough - axl99.deviantart.com/art/IRASH…



This by far has got to be the most epic thing I've painted outside of massive dinosaur stampede orgies. I worked overnight finishing this up, running on two cans of coffee and the 3AM daze.

Thanks to all those of you I've harrassed for the past week for crits and suggestions, you know who you are.

This Zack at his most - ahh what's that darned term I learned recently, OH YES - GAR!

Me, I dig the older Zack in Crisis Core. Couldn't stand his younger self, so I was happy that he was all grown up near the end of the game. Unfortuantely he still wasn't manly enough for me so I just had to make him a lil more macho here.

[Though it took an iron will to keep myself from throwing in a makeshift lensflare on the Buster Sword, I had wayyyyy too much fun painting the exploding cloud XD]

Lol this made me laugh at first because of Zack's expression and the explosion and the soldiers flying everywhere.
Zack's all just "YEAH!!!!!!!" *MASSIVE EXPLOSION*
And then the soldiers are just all "Oh my gosh gahhhhhh!" haha sorry I'm spastic.
I love this! Lovely work!!!! More more more!
No I must look through your gallery :la: :la:

OMG! I seriously ROFL'd when this pic loaded. And that's a good thing too! This whole scene looks so incredibly fun! When you said exploding coud, I actually thought you meant cloud cloud XD Damn, I'm still laughing while writing this, especially at the flying infantrymen and Zack's priceless expression.

This peice is absolutely amazing XD

Oh and when you said you had "too much fun painting the exploding cloud" at first I squinted closer trying to find an exploding Cloud Strife. Wrong kind of cloud, my bad. :XD:

I like the colour scheme and how you used custom brushes to get in the textures using single strokes. :)

Woww, that's got to be the most kickass Zack ever. I haven't played Crisis Core (no PSP), but I always did think of him as more on the manly handsome side of the pretty boy spectrum. I love the colours and the pose! You're too talented.
