After having the original version of this as my Featured Deviation for ages, the problems with it finally got to me badly enough I felt compelled to completely redraw it.

I fixed the anatomy.
I shaded it more precisely.
It was rendered at approximately 8"x10", which is easily four times the size of the original.
I also estimate I've got some 20+ hours of my life in this damn thing, and I am firmly reminded why I never work this big. Augh.

Anyhow, I'll be removing the old one eventually, so those of you that have the old one +fav'ed, be aware it's going to be vanishing.

For those that didn't see the old one, this is a hypothetical image of the Fayth-statue of Yuna's Final Aeon... Leviathan. Yes, it's Tidus, of course. Just a thought of what had happened if things had gone differently. Or rather... if things had gone exactly the same as before.

I have loved this work for a long time now.  The shading and detail are incredible and it's a favorite forever piece for me.

Say, if this scenario actually went through instead of the fight of Yunalesca... would Tidus be still be able to uphold his word about finding another way? That would mean Tidus would have to fight Sin... Without letting Yu Yevon get close to him. Either that, or destroy Yu Yevon before corruption could take place.

I recall seeing this from long ago. Glad to have  found the original artist!

ok, i can't really understand what the problem is, but i feel something really wrong about anatomy (you fixed it??)
torso and head look right, being the front part (isn't it?)

but from the elbows to the hands the arms looks like the whole body is seen from behind (especially the 'nude' arm, where i see the pointy part of the elbow). if he is twisting his arms, getting to show thepointy part of the elbow, the wrong part are the hands. use lil' reference.

i know i could be wrong, but i can't see how this could be. maybe tidus in this version (i'm not a big ff player) has twisted arms?? really don't know.

sorry if you feel offended.

You can twist your hands so that the back part is on the same side as the elbow. It's just a little uncomfortable.

There's nothing wrong with the anatomy. In FFX, the fayth statues (this picture) are supposed to be viewed from behind. So no, the front part of the torso isn't being seen here. It's from behind.

O.O wish I could sketch like this. Your attention to detail is amazing.

If this happened, I think the his Hymn of the Fayth would sound like this: [link] . it's like Yuna singing to her lost love.
