Strategy by DrAssenov Strategy by DrAssenov
I really want to see the Red Dawn remake! It has Chris Hemsworth! What does this have to do with Red Dawn?! Well, I watched the original last night with Patrick Swayze, Charlie Sheen, and Jennifer Grey. There was a scene where the teen guerrillas were discussing tactics or something and there was a group of them huddled around a table.

I thought it would be neat to try to draw these guys doing the same! There's not enough art of them actually being soldiers as teenagers/young adults!

I wonder which infantryman took this photo?

p.s. I don't know what actual strategy they used in attacking Wutai, but I just went with it. Made up stuff. There's mountains, and then there's Wutai.

total: 4 hours = sketching on paper + coloring in photoshop

Here's another "photo:" [link]

:P Sephiroth strikes me as the type to use Bolt/Ice (don't ask me why). Genesis would use Fire, and Angeal would focus on using the Earth and Restore materias.

Division of labor! I like it. Why bog yourself down with all kinds of materia when you can delegate out the tasks?

Oh, I love them at any age! Lol, was gonna say 'at this age' & decided that would be totally erroneous.
So, I dig the coloring here, really highlights how you did the light outside vs. inside. As much as I like Sephiroth's & Genesis's stylish outfits, there's something to be said for the originals - after all, Angeal & Zack always looked plenty sexy. Speaking of Angeal, nice to see him here (Genesis too).
Wanted to comment on everyone's hands - they look properly sized. I go through tons of FFVII fan art, & it's amazing how Sephiroth will be sexy tall & Angeal sexy brute & they have little Cloud hands.
Last, oh my, there is not enough Sephiroth in a ponytail :iconloveloveplz: Just because SE never showed him with it up doesn't mean it never happened!
Playing through Crisis Core over the holiday, & just cannot get enough FFVII, natch. Look for my review that I should've written in 2007 in two weeks :iconlazycryplz:

I love it when they have big hands! They gotta do stuff with them! They can't fight with tiny girly hands! XD XD

Yes, ponytail. I will just have to keep on drawing him with one. It's... so fun... I will look out for your review!!!
