Sephiroth Cosplay by Ellifayne Sephiroth Cosplay by Ellifayne
Ah, so. I happened to stumble across what I honestly believe is the world’s best cosplayer and my first thought (well… after “duh…” and wiping the drool from my keyboard) was “I must draw him!” And so I did. I worked all night on this piece. But, alas, I haven’t the artistic skill to have done this gorgeous man justice.

It breaks my heart, but I might have to scrap this one…

---
Sketched and finished in Photoshop with a reference photo from a Japanese cosplay site. And, if friggin Mozilla could properly display Japanese characters, I would have a better idea of who to credit. So if anyone knows who this guy is, please let me know so I can give him props for his incredible cosplay… and maybe let him know I’m single. ;p

Sephiroth is copyright Squaresoft/Square-Enix.

EDIT: There is now a link to this cosplayer (who is, in fact, a woman), thanks to ~shuichishindou2084. I maintain that she is the sexiest Sephiroth cosplay I have ever seen. Girl or boy, hon, you are one gorgeous villian.

... and I'm still single. ;P

OOH! That's it! Thank you so much! I'd found that picture and fell in love. I HAD to paint her.

And I firmly stand by the fact that she's one damn sexy Sephiroth.

Wow, I wish I would have noticed this earlier. ^.^ I know this cosplayer. It's Puu Onee-chan, at least that's what she's called. I had a link to a site of hers, but it's moved and I don't know to where


Here's the reference piccy you spoke of. ^.^ At least a bigger one, I hope.


It is indeed a girl and you may be able to find her by looking up her or her sister, Scrawny Squall (aka Chrissie-chan) on google. ^.^

I really like the coloring in this and the way you've done the light. I mean the hair is fricken awsome. The only odd thing is the nose looks kind of fuzzed into the face--but that might just be the style you chose. At any rate, this work is much coolness!

Thank you so much. ^_^ I always stress out about colors, too. My usual method is to slap color on the palette and smudge it around until it looks decent. Itís not very professional, but it works for now. Iím still streamlining and adapting my style, which has proven a bit frustrating at times. But fun.

Anyway: :hug: to you!

Any chance of a link to the guy cosplaying sephy? I'd like to see that. :)

Sweet pic though, even if you don't think you did him justice. ;P

I would love to provide a link, however according to my browser the link and page title is: ?????????

I was going through pictures so quickly (I'm cosplaying soon and I was looking for costumes), and I was so stunned when I saw this guy that it didn't even occur to me to bookmark the page. >.< I'll go on a mad hunt for it, though. I'm sure it's still in my history somewhere.

Thanks! I had a lot of fun with the hair... I thought it would be a little too much, but it's Sephie so I guess it's ok. ^_^ (The guy in the picture had white wig with a lot of hair too!)

:giggle: Sephiroth is a sexy bunch of polygons either way. Plus, I guess I sorta lean toward girly-looking men anyway. ^^;

Thank you for the comment! :hug:
