SOLDIER 1st Class cuff by taeliac SOLDIER 1st Class cuff by taeliac
Well, I made this a few weeks ago (has it really been that long?! Where is time going without me??) on a weekend whim.

The design is traced off of the character art of Sephiroth from the original FFVII, because the Advent Children belt thinger is kinda dumb looking to me. I like the original better.

I know it's different than Cloud's, but that's because Cloud's looked too weird and curvy, I liked the simplicity of Sephiroth's better.

(you can see Sephiroth's here and Cloud's here for comparison's sake)

Traced the design in Illustrator, tweaked with it to make it more size-friendly, printed it out and transferred it to the leather, and pounded away!

The staining isn't the best on this piece, I think I did something weird with it, but I still love the effect of worn leather coloring. The silver bits are liquid acrylics in many, many coats, and everything was sealed off, holes punched in it, and lacing added.

I wear this more than I should. I feel like a nerd every time I do, but I really love it!

I may take commissions on these, or try to have a few done for conventions I'm vending at - we'll see! Assuming that anyone would be interested in buying them, that is...

:giggle: I know what you mean - that's happened to just about every game I get a chance to start... now that I think of it, I did the same thing with FFX :faint: I should probably finish that game sometime soon... >_>
