Dream Into Nightmare by nachtwulf Dream Into Nightmare by nachtwulf
At long last, the wretched thing is /done/. And I'm actually happy with it (although how long that lasts is still up in the air...)

I'm not entirely sure what crack I was smoking when I decided to fill the bottom of the frame with /fire/, but... anyway. To see the progress of the piece, check the Scraps gallery.

For those that haven't read previous comments, I play Tidus on an online RPG. (Yes, this is Tidus, not Shuyin. I promise.) Due to circumstances on said game, Tidus has fallen under the Sorceress Edea's (FF8) sway, and in all likelihood, is to become her new Knight. She's a terrible, terrible influence.... one wonders if Yuna will be able to pull him back from the brink. (If we ever get someone to /play/ Yuna, anyway...)

It looks like he's having a Sephiroth moment....

Gorgeous! Amazing drawing of Tidus, very detailed on the clothing and his sword hilt. And the flame effect is just astonishing! Looks so real....and that RPG you mentioned sounds interesting too.

I don't care what possessed to put that fire there, but the end result is awesome. The lighting is especially well-done, I think. I wish I was as proficient a CGer...but no such luck. xD Great work!

OMG...the shading on this is magnificent! I only WISH I had that kind of talent! Especially the way you have the light from the fire on him....this is just gorgeous. Definitely going in my faves. ^_^

while staring at it, i could feel the blazing fire dancing in front of me and reflects the sign when I was born ---Aries sign.

Huh, well, nice job again from one of the good artist in DA! :clap:

Creepy. o.o *pokes Tidus* Where's this? And where's Auron to smack the sucker around a bit!? ^_~

On FFmux. And we don't /have/ an Auron. Or a Yuna either. Anyway, even Auron would be hard pressed to back Tidus down at this point, especially alone. He might not hit as hard as some people, but he can sure make up for it in volume, and then some. The old Auron quit (or was fired, I don't remember) and wasn't all that great anyway.

Hm, FFMux. So tempted to grab Auron and knock Tidus around. ^_~ Ahem. Then again, I should probably actually spend time on BlackGate before I go grabbing more characters just to beat you up, huh? XD *quietly hides her FFXI obsession*

How did you do the fire? O.o I've been trying to do fire for almost a year now, and I still havent gotten any where near that! The only fire I came up with is the one on my devart page... mine's not particularly fire-like ;p more like a background thing...

awww, poor Tidus is suffering from Seifer-Syndrom, it seems. I like the lighting, and the fact that he looks uber-creepy.

Tidus pulling a Seifer... I LOVE IT!

And even Tidus is too cool to be portraying the 1 dimensional block of wood that was Sepheroth.
