This image is a color CG I created from a lineart by Bluestraggler. While looking through her gallery at [link]
which contains some great anime lineart (hint, hint, go there!), I found her picture of Rufus and the Turks from Final Fantasy 7 and I decided I wanted to color it. I did this in a cell-shaded style, as I thought it worked better with the lineart than my usual smoother style; although I like the results overall, I do wish I was better with cell-shaded hair... But I'm happy with it anyway. I have to note that I did make some small changes to the lineart while coloring it; I made it darker, edited out one or two fold lines, and made Elena slightly curvier. Additionally, I changed the highlighted areas on Reno and Rude's shades a bit to make them fit in with my coloring scheme. I wanted Elena so that she looked very feminine and stood out in the picture, since the rest of the figures are all male-I hope that worked out alright.
