It was a formative experience.

Review




I did a million sketches of different compositions until I settled on this.  I usually prefer to do something figurative if I can, but the sword was the only thing that felt adequately... respectful... of the strange space that this game occupies in my life.

This is way fun. I will always love old-school game homage.

BUSTER SWORD! One of the few games I've ever played out in its entirety, I love FFVII to bits.

Aaron Ludwig said...

I love this game too. Could never figure the story out though.

love your lines!

one of my favorite things you've ever done. FF7 is a close second to secret of mana in my list of childhood inspirations.

I can't place why, but there's something about this piece that has a Mignola feel to it. The sword just feels so steeped in Mythological history.

I could never play FF unless I was completely free of obligations. And yeah, I know why you did those mignola leaves - I can read minds.

FF7 was never worth the praise it got, i felt. But i couldnt have thought of a classier way to pay tribute. Master-Sword style from SNES zelda.
