Finally one more FFVIII fan art! This time I chose Edea Kramer, one of my favorites villains. I'm very proud of this piece too because after a long training in hard surfaces I was able to do everything in Zbrush, including her helmet. Render was done with photoshop passes!
This is outstanding, incredible! I'm immediately drawn to details of the feathers of the dress Edea wears here, it's such an eye catching piece (and also what makes the black dress stand out so much on it's own). The feathers here feel alive and have such a dark airy movement; it's just perfect. The next eye catching piece would be the headpiece/helmet she wears which has a beautiful gloss and shine. It adds to her persona and really gives her that powerful enigmatic. The translucent cape also is amazing and mind blowing, but what brings all this together is her face really. Edea's facial expression, the small smile and somewhat empty power hungry gaze brings all the other eye-catching details together to form a complete piece. She really looks elegant, she looks mysterious and to a proper extent insane which in my perspective captures her character in this form. Very nicely done and outstanding work!
Wow, this is beautiful! I love her face and her helmet, the detail and realism is amazing! I particularly like the shine on the horns, the vein detail on the side of her face, and the fine features of her face. I never did play through this game (it was a borrowed copy) but when I was playing it, I did enjoy it. This is a wonderful fan art piece of her.
