I drew Sephi this time last year, but I wasn't happy with how it turned out. Felt like I've improved since so lets try again - playing with emphasis on line work which I tried out on the "King of Hearts" Vega first. Since Sephi's palette is pretty monochromatic, I was using the line work and integrating it with shading to create more of a dramatic contrast between light and dark.
Hope I've done him justice this time... and please don't quiz me on FF trivia - I still haven't played those games, and I'm very very sorry if I drawn anything inaccurately ^^"
*Minor updates: highlights added to the right hand, and colour adjustment to the sword blade to make them stand out a bit more.
