In a digital age where we are constantly bombarded with images online all the time, this is the kind of piece that makes it impossible for the viewer to scroll past. The setting is perfect for the character and even those who do not know Vega will be able to tell from this that he is an extremely dangerous warrior of the night. The pose is perfect for Vega; dignified, powerful, and beautiful.
The sheer details in his anatomy, muscle definition, clothing and accessories, etc are fantastic. The red moon as the backdrop which highlights his beautiful form is the perfect touch. The blood-red moon is also another homage to his character; in spite of his gorgeous and effortless appearance, he is a very violent, very ruthless fighter. Capcom would be proud of you for how Vega has been depicted in your illustration.
I'd like to formerly apoligize, as I found this image on google images, and thought it was absolutely amazing, so I did a stencil of it on my page, but didn't give you the original credit for it. I'm not one for stealing artwork, so I just wanted to let you know personally that if you happen to stumble upon it, it wasn't my intention to steal it.
Like I said, this is amazingly well done, and is actually my favorite Vega picture of all time, other than his Alpha 3 concept x3
Haha there is just something about Vega that is so sexy even if his personality is a turn off. xD Haha but seriously, he looks great in your style. I love the angle you did him in. So intense! And the coloring... Awesomely detailed. But I think I may be guilty at staring at his butt too much... Sorry! But anyway, this really looks great! Nice job.
