Sayonara means good-bye in english. Personal painting, original resolution 2220 x 993 pix (most of details probably lost here).

but what if its not taken from FF7??? people there are many different types of swords in the world. and if you were as picky as i am you would notice that the sword from a glance looks like cloud's sword but it lacks some parts.

Leonid, this is a very beautiful picture.

Sayonara means good bye in Japanese, not English. ;D

Jachra, I think he meant Sayonara means good-bye, and that good-bye is the English. Not the Sayonara 12

Anyway, the detail in this is amazing, even though we here get to see only a glimpse of it, and the background is truly outstanding. I myself have never been able to paint well.
The colours for the background add a very airy atmosphere also 2

Eli, while it may not be exactly the same, when there is a sword that is very rectangular with two holes and the weird handle and the same basics, it can be assumed that even if the artist didn't copy it perfectly from FF7, it is obviously taken from there... swords like that don't just pop up all over the place, they're pretty distinct...
and saying its the same sword doesn't mean its a crappy pic, stop generalising.

That really reminds me of that scene in FF7 Advent Children were Cloud is looking at Edge and Zack's sword is in the ground...he does look kind of short, but it is still an amazing picture.

The thumbnail did slightly remind me of something I once saw, I think from FFVII...
The snowy background is very open and... cold-looking... but the tunic waist is positioned just so that it almost makes him seem a little short. If you stretched this picture upward, though.. (but that's only how I draw)...
Anyway, I like the title. And the sword.

I have no idea what FF7 is but I love your painting. The colour work is brilliant, especially the orange blue combination there. *goes off to look at the rest of the gallery*

Oh come now...So the sword designs are strikingly similar.... It doesn't mean that sword is particularly from FF7.

Anyways though.Very nice picture besides.

Looks like a photo almost.... dang

Why FF7? Every final fantasy sword from all 13 games looks like this, and I contend that this painting uses the style quite well, whether it is intentionally or not.
