The Execution of All Things by AshleyCope The Execution of All Things by AshleyCope
Another Omniart picture. You had to choose an art style and then execute fanart in it. Art Nouveau was one of the choices so I went with that in order to do a dark, brooding, rather masculine piece that has nothing in common with Art Nouveau but weird hair, flowers, and a prancing androgyne.

Sigh. I won't be surprised if I don't advance. I did try though.

So Vincent. Torn between designs from the upcoming Dirge of Cerberus, and Classic Vincent. Ended up half and half, using his swanky new thigh holster, claw, and new gun, but opting for interpretations of his old limit breaks and not that skirt-wearing Griever reject "Galian Beast" from the new game. There's stupid symbolism here in everything from the relative positions of things to Chaos' skulls to where Vin's looking, but explaining it all would ruin the puzzle, hmm? The title's from a Rilo Kiley song. It is mostly self-deprecating. Do you know why?

I may post detail shots later. I kind of like how Galian Beast's shaggy muppet head came out but he's so dark the detail's lost all shrunk up. And Chaos looks chocolate-coated. I bet he's nougat in the middle since nougat is of the devil.

Years and years ago when I worked at a print shop I had some 11x17 prints of this made and I sold them. I wish I had some left for you!

I could see if I get a print for myself, if you would be willing to sell me the high-res image :D
I would love to have a large silk poster of it in my art room...

Omg, Agreed. I feel like it was just a half-assed piece of work made just to get more money. There were a very few things about the game that I liked, but even those were butchered by either the writers or the gameplay. Rosso the Crimson for example. She had immense potential for character development, but they totally overlooked it. What fags....

Surely you enjoyed looking at Vincent's bum for hours.

but yeah, it was a pretty terrible game

Man, I could still, years later, rant in affronted rage for hours over how that game destroyed my love for FFVII, and how I'd like nothing more than to find its creators and beat them across the face with a sackful of rotten squirrels. DoC wounded my very soul. I have never recovered D:

AshleyCope Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Haha, yeah. Crisis Core was a bit more tolerable but aside from the nostalgia and more enjoyable gameplay it was still not all that great. None of the post-FFVII media is really worth the discs it's printed on, alas.

Original game, all the way. I am crazy obsessed with it, but I never get to talk to anyone who's played the whole compilation. XD So forgive me dredging up bad memories.

Oh hey I just remembered you're the artist of the comic I just started reading. Your avatar is too distracting. I'm the person who just tweeted at you to tell you you're a cool guy, or whatever nonsense I said.

It's weird to see someone so young obsessed with the original FFVII. It's pretty dated these days. That's cool though.

Wonderful work.
I really like the style and symbolism is in my opinion awesome. Pus, you combined it with all those impressive details.
I mean, just... damn.

I could start writing interpretations and stuff, but... oh, well. Itīs up to everyone what to think I guess.
(Not to mention I woud probably totally overthink everything.)

Aside from me nearly drooling all over my keyboard (nah, just kidding XD) I donīt think I could write anything that wasnīt already written before.
Guess I love the dark aura...

I'm not hte OP, but here's some advice to help you figure it out:

Having a computer/photoshop/OC/any kind of digital art thing won't help you become a better artist. What helps you draw better is practice.

Scanning things in a photoshopping them is how a lot of people do it. Others draw directly on a tablet and work on that in an art program.

If what you're looking for is photoshop(/OC/gimp/tegaki/etc) lessons, however, just search around on DA under "tutorials". It'll give you ideas, and what you do then is experiment a whole lot and practice a whole lot more until you finally like your style.
