I was serious when I started that thread before, the Sephiroth trace was simply because I didn't have any ACTUAL art laying around and I, honestly, just wanted a picture up there to start. It was spoilerized because it was not a serious entry. Sorry if I didn't make that clear and you guys thought I was trying to pawn it off as my own art. That was my bad.
But I'm really interested in seeing some character art! When I get my scanner back up and running I'll post one of my own.
