SOLDIER by Ahvia SOLDIER by Ahvia
OMFG. I AM ON THE BIGGEST FF7 KICK EVER RIGHT NOW : O!! It's exciting for me this time around, because the last time I was on a huge FF7 kick I was 12 and drew crappy 12 year old fanart (no offense to any 12 year olds out there.) =o=

But anyway, yeah, I replayed the game after watching the long trailer they released for Advent Children, and now I'm obsessed with crappyblueSOLDIERCloud. Hopefully I got him outta my system with this pic, and can go back to working on pics involving Seph, my long-time favorite ever. >O< Things that bother me about this pic is that the helmet looks too small, even though it isn't (trust me, I flipped and dragged it over his head...it fits) and I don't think Cloud's coloring meshes all that well with his Midgar-inspired background. Ohhhh well, that's nothing new for my pics. 9_9 See, I like to point out my mistakes before anyone else can. :D

as a side note (I ramble here because I don't think too many people actually read pic descriptions), does anyone even REMEMBER Cloud from *FFVII*? I mean, we all loved him in Kingdom Hearts, CoM, Ehrgiez (ok no one loves that game) and will love him in Advent Children, but I was amazed at how much of the original game I'd forgotten. I urge you all to replay before FF7:AC comes out! (I heard it was gonna be like, May.)

Cute lil soldier Cloud. He looks so ukeish!

I really need to play FFVII. Like bad. But I was like, 6 when it came out and obsessed with Pokemon and drawing crappy Pokemon fanart and not playing Playstation. And then my friends got me obsessed with Final Fantasy, and then I watched Advent Children and didn't get it at all and fangirled Cloud anyway and then my friend started playing FFVII and then I watched Last Order and all the Crisis Core trailers and Advent Children again and read wikipedia and listened to her rant about playing the game and I'm still fangirling Cloud and have been for like a year and I want to cosplay him in his uniform deal from Crisis Core.
And I really need to play FFVII.
Like bad. But I don't know where to find it.
Because it's been 10 years, lawls.
And you reminded me of that.
Congratulations.

I loved when they dressed up as SOLDIERs. It was a fun part in the game.

Well, I love this picture! :D

I've beaten that game so many times and it never gets old. And you'd be amazed at how much you forget between replays. It's been awhile now, and I wanna replay it again, to keep the story fresh in my memory.

I love this artwork, and your right you always forget, about the Cloud before Avalanche. :+fav:

Looks great -- I love the folds of his outfit. And I love the materia in his gun -- what a great idea! And I did read your comments. ;) Actually, I've played through FF7 a couple times and the only thing that's bothered me about other games with Cloud is that they've changed his character a lot. He was a little, ah, dorky in FF7. I mean, he says things like "Let's mosey." They made him too cool in AC! :XD:

Thanks for all your comments! : D
Yeah, some people were mentioning that Cloud was a lot different in AC, but I'm never sure how much of his dorky dialogue was just thrown into the translation of that game or what. :'C And he seemed to change a lot, personality-wise, after Aerith died, so I always assumed that he was angsty and cool because of his -tragic past- (pretend i said that in a gothy voice) But yeah, I agree that it would have been nice if he were a little bit dopey in his other incarnations.

I love this so much. FFVII was the first RPG I ever played and it is Cloud and Sephiroth's fault for getting me into boy love.

wow this is byuuutiful! i love the background and the clothes and especially cloud's cute expression! and of course i've played ffvii (and am replaying it for the 8th time... this time in japanese! w00t...) ... and i too did lots of crappy 12 year old art (not like my art is much better now) back when it was my fave game of all time... wait, it still is. ^^
and i liked ehrgiez too especially seph's voice (shinichiro miki!!! :D)

FYI, Cloud was never in "SOLDIER" he was just a grunt, a generic soldier. Zack was, and when Cloud's head got funked up he emulated a lot of his lifelong dreams by fusing his own memories with Zacks, which he knew from stories Zack had told him. Anyhoo, freaking AWESOME pic! God bless, keep it up!

H'WALRIGHT. rofl you're doing better than i was, at once a year. since I haven't played it since it came out, it's like a whole new game (hence my blabbiness :D) i was really obsessed with it and played it a lot after I beat it (gold chocobo, KotR, all that fun stuff...never beat the Weapons, though!) but after a while I forgot a good chunk of the plot and just knew that something was crashing into the planet and I was supposed to punt Sephi in the face ;.; ...which I did several times a week.

I ADORE FF7 Cloud the most ^^
Along with his cute confuddled mind.
The cutest profile of him has gotta be the profile of Soldier!Cloud in his flashback with Sephiroth when they went to Nibleheim >.<
I like the background alot :D
And it's interesting to see Cloud in SOLDIER uniform XD
Have never seen anyone drawn him like this before

And, rofl, I went through a lot trying to find reference for the SOLDIER uniform that wasn't the normal little polygonal ones. There's no official art of it anywhere. ;_;

Haha, I liked Ehrgiez too, but only to laugh at making the FF7 characters do silly things (Sephiroth and Turk Vincent taking face-dives into the sand on the beach mini-game = hours of fun) if not for those characters I don't think too many people would buy that game :x

That's true... I really had so much fun with that beach thingie :rofl: My bro always took Tifa and I always took Seph (ofcourse)... well, when we played it for the first time we both jumped too soon. You are staring at eachother... damn we both did had the flag. Then all of the sudden my bro started to crawl toward the flag... Huh? :O.o: was that an option too??? But you are right... I guess not many people bought the game...
