What can I say? Being a fan of Final Fantasy I couldn't just not check this deviation the moment it appeared on my deviantWATCH. And, needless to say, I really thought this was a photography before fullviewing it! I applaud the artist for having so much patience and passion while executing this marvelous work, both as a fellow artist, but also as a Final Fantasy fan.
The way this was all done with pencil makes such impact that, even though I cannot give more points for originality, since this is based on a promotional pic from the original movie and not an original composition, it would be unfair to say it doesn't have it's own spark of glory, this picture is very, very impressive on its own. The lights and shadows were also so well executed that it makes us believe both Sephiroth and Cloud are very much alive and moving like in the movie.
