UPDATE
Fixed some of the colors and shadows.

Resize killed the detail so have an up-close view XD:


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

OLLLLLLLLD Ex-Commission/Gift for *Sho-kun

OH MY GOSH THIS IS SO LATE PLEASE FORGIVE ME SHO-SAMA *crawls into a hole to die*

OMG Zack's sweater just about KILLED me. That's right.... it's HAND-TEXTURED - and those flowers... *shudders* NOT TO MENTION IT TOOK ME AGES TO FINISH.....
Whelp, gotta say though, as tough as it was - this one was really fun to paint. Zack and Aerith are two of my fave characters ever, and one of my fave OTPs too.

Done in Easy Paint Tool SAI.
Time: Roughly 120 hours.

Zack and Aerith/Aeris are Square-Enix.

Kupo,
as far as I'm concerned,I would consider you've accomplished a comparable decent jobs;

First of all, the colors you choose are quite vivid & active and have been arranged accurately and properly,which can be seen in the flower background and Zack & Aerith's apperance as all of them looks so lifelike and peaceful.

Secendly,the small parts are managed and drew in a rather careful and patient way; for instance, the texture of Zack's sweater and the lower part of Aerith's dress are showed and companioned with shadow in a considerable manner,which both show your capacity and patience.

Last but not least,it's really close to the story itself(23 wishes) and serves rather good;you show me an accompany of Aerith and Zack and draw them in a peaceful way with excellent skills, which heals my heart and makes me believe they're together forever...
What do you think?

Hello there! First I''d like to say that is a very beautiful piece. It makes me rather emotional considering that we are all familiar with Zack and Aerith's story and Zack's rather unfortunate fate. I'd have to say what captivated me the most was the details of this piece. I looked carefully and it seems you worked very hard filling out the tiniest of details such as the stitches on Zack's leather belt, the wooly texture of the turtleneck, their hair, Aerith's skirt and the thin lines on the blades of grass.

Your lighting and shading is what makes the piece come to life too, immediately you can get the feeling of the amount of glow around the characters with the way you did your lighting and shading. I just have to say I had a little difficulty spotting some of the feathers since they are white and some of them were placed against the white flowers and because they had a little glow, I had to squint to make them out. But I really think this is nothing to be concerned about. The focus of the piece are Zack and Aerith and not the feathers XD

You did a good job. Keep it up!

I don't even know where to start when commenting on your art. It's so luminescent and shiny and warm. Everything solid. So professional. Let me just bask in it.

Nice! You remade the scene in AC/C where Cloud found Tifa but then lied down beside her. Instead, you replaced them with Zack and Aerith, but I know that scene turned out to be good, unlike Cloud and Tifa's situation during AC/C.

Great job!
