This was done to the them of 'vacation' and had to include Final Fantasy VII's Sephiroth. The obvious thought was to put Sephiroth on a beach in Speedos. So naturally that's exactly what I didn't do.


There is logic to this picture. Sephiroth is very pale so would probably avoid the sunbaking. He's a loner and I think his idea of a nice holiday is to be away from other people. So birdwatching is perfect. Every family holiday I've been on I've been draged birdwatching so I know it involves a lot of standing still quietly waiting for the little bastards to emerge from thickets. I've grown to like it much better than the beach. The Chocobos Sephiroth has found are loosely based on scrubfowl- a type of megapode.


Done entirely with ballpoint pen. It took a stupidly long time to finish.

Shelz, you are miraculous. How could this be done with a ballpoint pen??? The birch trees, the woodland paths and the rocks and vegetation let alone the birds and the man. Worth the time it took, but far from stupidly.

:-) Shelz Keast replies: "It used the pen pretty much the same as a pencil. However you need just the right pen, not all biros have the right ink flow and can produce a thin enough line."
