A different look, but impressive nonetheless!
^_^ I see a difference in the way this piece was created, when I look at your earlier work beside it.
I can't help but to ask, what did you use? :) It seems somehow different from "Yuri" and much of the other artwork I saw last time I checked NG.
I can't help for feel that somehow... the legs are just a tad smaller than I remember though...
but, then again, I haven't played FF- X recently, so I'm probably wrong xD
The shading is extraordinarily well done. Especially on the body and the wings.
The only oddity... is that the left wing connection (the blue wingtip-like part) appears... jagged?
0.0 I could be wrong, but, did you use more than one of the creative suite programs to produce this? It almost looks as if it were begun in illustrator, and brought to life using shading and other such tools of adobe photoshop CS3.
Now that I'm done being over-analytical, I'd like to say that this is an incredible piece, and that the effort shows. It's very clear that you spent a lot of time working the shading and the highlights to give the impression of a directional ambient light (which you did extraordinarily well I might add, as the hook protrusions on the chest are a testimant to this fact).
Extraordinary Artwork, Extraordinary rating. 10/10, 5/5.
Keep up the good work ^_^
