Diamond Dust by SoraNamae Diamond Dust by SoraNamae
So Ive been putting commissions aside for a bit to practice stuff lately, and I decided to do some fan arts of characters that I had wanted to draw for a long time...
As FF fans might be able to tell, this is shiva from FF X... What I did was to actually take a screenshot of her while I was playing, and then going from there

I tried to keep her "feel" as close as possible to the original, though I changed the outfit a bit, I wanted her to look more like an ice princess or something, with lots of white
Overall, the end result didnt turn out as good as I hoped, its still missing something though I cant figure out what exactly, but I spent too much time on it so I just had to move on

You can expect to see more FF characters coming up, and if you know my tastes you can probably guess which one is coming next :P

After reading what/how you felt 'bout this piece, I just wanna' start off by sayin' itz beautiful. I don't think itz necessarily 'missing  something', but if itz at all possible to improve on this wonderful Art, I'd only humbly submit a thought or two (nothin' drastic or image breakin'). *ehem* here goes ::: slight contrast shading on some of the trappings - like the Belly-Ring, as well as her (hair) locks Rings - and when I look at the awesome depth (off-skin slide allure), you created on her hips, with those sexy strands ... maybe a little of that (while also better defining), (the area) between her Forearm and Breast. Also, between the Collar Bone to the Sleeve, as well as the the bottom of Sleeve to Skin of Arm. Again, this is absolutely beautiful, and I know you're probably done, but I couldn't ignore your comment (lol). I am by no means an expert and I apologize if this comes off "snooty" - was certainly not my intention - I have the utmost respect for your Art and Efforts - ty for your Time, Patience, and Understanding.

Truly fantastic, I've always been a huge fan of Shiva and I have to say FFX's version of Shiva is my personal favorite. This is beautiful, I have fallen so in love with your art and art style <3

For the longest time FFVIII shiva was my favorite, and she still has my favorite summon animation, its just beautiful... but I guess as I grew older, I started to like FFX shiva more due to her mature look (the FFVIII one looks quite younger, almost like a teenager)

Funny how your tastes change :P

Nice depiction. It was a good game. The first part of the actual attack is blowing air with her frosty lip, lol.

FFX Shiva was my favorite version of her representation. You did a wonderful job in maintaining her tones and body language. Q-Q The new pieces of clothing actually fit well with her, in more than one sense. From an aesthetic view point it brings a nice contrast to her title as Ice Queen, seeing what appears to be a revealing but intricate dress, gentle in appearance but complex in the way it encircles her arms and body. The way it looks almost makes you think it's all that was left from the moment she was human.

It's also accurate to her habit of wearing only enough clothing to retain her modesty as seen throughout the games. xD

Elegant. Well done. For obvious reasons I've always been partial to the Shiva summon/eidolon in various FF games.
