Confrontation - Caius, Noel, and Serah by andersoncathy Confrontation - Caius, Noel, and Serah by andersoncathy
Oh, yes this took me ages to do. :faint: Not literally, but it took me hours. Rendering, alone, took me almost a whole day to do. Then, I had to touch up mistakes and errors in the models (except Caius, he was nearly perfect :lmao:) and added in each individual light part since I'm not capable of enabling them in Blender.. yet. :giggle:

Speaking of Blender maps, this is my first render with bump/normal maps enabled! :dance:

Absolutely loving Blender and I am so pleased with how this photo turned out.. and I even strayed away from Lightning. :woohoo:

Their poses are my favorite.. :meow:

Anyways, this inspiration came from Caius' theme from FFXIII-2. You all should check it out here: [link] (YouTube)

I hope you enjoy this, let me know what you think! :happybounce:

Description: Serah's down and Noel barely breathing, the last thing both the time travelling warriors were expecting was the presence of an infamous foe - Caius Ballad.

:bulletpurple: Serah by Rexil.
:bulletpurple: Noel & Caius by o0Crofty0o.
:bulletpurple: The Void Beyond by takebon999.
:bulletpurple: Poses by me.
:bulletpurple: Sky/background by faestock (heavily modified). - [link]
:bulletpurple: All other effects are done and edited by me.

Suggestions? Please leave a comment below, check out my other creations, add me to your deviant watch, and don't forget to :+fav:!

This photo was made with XNA Lara, Blender 2.6 and Photoshop CS6.

I just had a thought. Would it seem fitting if Caius had with him a Shadow Lugia?
