The Darkest Aeon by nachtwulf The Darkest Aeon by nachtwulf
And you thought Anima was spooky. What do you get when you cross Fatal Frame with FFX? You get... Yuurei.

Originally, this stemmed from one of my innumerable online RPGs, where Mafuyu (from Fatal Frame) ended up getting tangled with Seymour and his quest for power, and in the long run becoming the fayth of the aeon 'Yuurei'. Functionally, it behaved much like Doomtrain from FF8.

Colored hastily, but... it's 11:30pm, and I didn't feel like busting my butt on the colorjob.

Whoa. That's uber-awesome. It looks kinda like something out of Silent Hill. Very, very cool. ^_^

This is crazy good! All of the detail is spectacular! I sooo love the wings with each feather contoured like that!
Could you post that background thing seperatley? It is cool enough to be its own piece!
Great work!!
You have so many great ideas and I love how they are all Final Fantasy or Square related. Have you ever done anything from other Square games besides Kingdom Hearts? Like Chrono Trigger? Or maybe cool things from Illusions of Gaia?
You have too much talent!
Keep drawing!

Hmm, haven't played Fatal Frame yet, but I like the design of this. The detail of the wings are really eyecatching and the coloring seems quite fitting. Good job. :D

GoblinQueeen Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2004

Woah.. that's about all I can say, just, wow. If I had to pick something, I'd say that the wings are probably the best feature. The way they start of draconian, all fleshy and skeletal in appearance, then they run down to acctual features. The fingers are also amazing, the talent you have with hands is just stunning. What I wouldn't give to have nails like that, although I figure they'd probably get in the way when typing or drawing. It'd be wonderful reference though. heh.

If I had to point out anything, I'd say that just before his hips fade off, they seem to be just a little too curvy for the male anatomy, but maybe he's like that, because I haven't played Fatal Fame (I have played FFX though, not quite finished yet. =3). The choice of the orange as a colour is very good, but for some reason the emblem in the background seems too prominent, or maybe it's because the wings (or are they ears?) on the emblem come just underneath the original wings, but it seems to drain attention away from the main focus of the picture, which I'm assuming (I could be going down the completely wrong track here) is the Aeon itself.

Anywaaay, beautiful picture, really. The attention to detail is superb. I've been watching your art for some time, but I've never acctually commented on anything, so, this is the lucky number one. heh.

Ack! I want that Aeon! -slips over and smiles- Yoink! XD
kaihzu Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2004
I love it. The wings remind me of today's popular comic book coloring style. It'd be cool to get someone like you to design original races and creatures for a mush I'm working on now.. but, eh. I know you're busy with a billion other mush things.
TheRedMoon Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2004
Three words!

Kick ass!
lovefool Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2004
This is would be the kind of thing you'd see at a tattoo show on some toned bikers back. (sa'complement :3) I am oddly reminded of Parastie Eve for some reason. Perhaps it's the flame-like background. Anywho, you do fingers soooo gooot x3
