I know, it's been ages that I ever since submitted a full completed artwork. Argh, life nowadays is getting busy... mainly because my age is already catching up and I cannot just spend most of my time on computer doing artwork. (Yeah, to be frank, my social life isn't really that good... so I really need to explore more
Anyway, BEHOLD, Garnet Til Alexandros XVII cosplayed by ~SasuSaku-4ever
Yeah, I did make a promise before that I will draw her cosplaying FF characters but these days I was too busy and occupied until I don't have time to spend on those. First, I promised to draw her in Tifa outfit... it doesn't work too well until I saw this stunning Garnet cosplay of her! If you are interested to look at her original photo and make compare, here you go: [link]
In fact, you should look the rest of her Garnet cosplay and also other of her gorgeous cosplays.
And yes, for those who thinks that her Garnet cosplay somewhat incomplete... well, she did requested me to draw her crown which I think I should... but laziness once again plagued my mental, I decided to scrap the idea and just leave it as is (*runs*)
BUT, despite the laziness intact, I still draw this cosplay in meticulous ways... Zoom closer, and I actually puts in skin texture as well as well-refined hair. The hair was my latest method towards realism (though it's not entirely) but at least it does look like one from far look. Yeah, need more improvements..
So... that's about it. I hope you guys like it. I know the quality may be not as good as previous, but I really lack of time (daytime job, nighttime social). I just hope when things start to stable down or I get some time... I can start drawing the full-fledge artwork with some epic sauce in it
