Shame   --Upgraded Quality-- by SierraMikainLatkje Shame   --Upgraded Quality-- by SierraMikainLatkje
EDIT--Got a new computer, so now I can export images of a much more decent size! Woo-hoo! I haven't re-exported my others yet, just this one (as a test) but I thought I'd go ahead and put the new version up. (I haven't bothered to change the text below, however...)

Someone else has probably already done this basic idea, so if I'm stepping on any toes, I apologize. I just thought of it last night, and felt like putting it together. (Ended up staying up until about 3 A.M. working on it, but...) Though, actually, in my original idea, Cloud was going to be standing and putting on his helmet, but I didn't have a helmet for him to put on, so...he's freaking out instead. :P

This is basically still a work in progress, for several reasons. I still don't know how to maneuver the camera quite where I'd like it to go--I'd have liked a better view of Cloud's face, for example--and story-wise it would have made more sense if Tifa was talking to Zack instead of Sephiroth--or at least the Crisis Core Sephiroth instead of the Dissidia Sephiroth--but these were the models I already had downloaded when I thought of this, so... Another way this is a WIP is in that I couldn't get MMD to export a decent image! In fact, half the time it was exporting an empty file. I have no idea what I'm doing wrong; I guess I need to spend several days scouring all the tutorials out there before I try anything else again...

Just one more comment: it's been a while since I played Crisis Core, and although I had basically remembered that they were still playing up Tifa's status as VII's sex bomb, I had forgotten just how badly they over-sexualized her here. While I was trying to get her facial expression right (not that you can see it very well) I really couldn't help but notice how huge they made a certain portion of her anatomy. It made me want to fly to Japan, find the person responsible and smack him around shouting "She's FIFTEEN for crying out loud, you sick pervert!" Seriously, it's actually really gross if you think about it. Although I guess Tifa having blossomed so spectacularly so early would certainly heighten Cloud's shame at his utter failure to make a hero of himself in the two years he's been gone...

Anyway, all that aside, the characters are all copyright SquareEnix, and were ripped from the games and rigged up for MMD. Nilad the Rogue did the Sephiroth model, and ~Heleannor did the Cloud and Tifa models. The background is an original by ~ShikaneNara called Abandoned Mansion, and I thought it looked similar enough to the Shinra Mansion in Nibelheim to use for this project...only then the only place I could find for Cloud to be hiding from Tifa prevented any view of the mansion. Maybe I should have put him on the other side of the wall, so Tifa was stopping him from getting back inside...dang. That would have worked a lot better. Well, if I ever figure out how to get a better output image, or fix up the camera angle, I guess I'll go ahead and make that change, too...

I can see her talking with him if Zack's not around. Seph may not be a sociable, talkative guy but he'll still talk with people. I can actually see this happen.
And, awww poor Cloud. :hug:
