Barret by FabianMonk Barret by FabianMonk
It's been a long while since I submitted anything here, but now I've got something I can show again! This is a collaboration I did with Jon Sommariva aka Red J, of Barret from Final Fantasy 7 (in case you're not familiar with the character then shame on you). Had some fun on this one and it's been a while since I busted out Painter again. Jon posted slightly brightened up version of this picture here!

Pencils: Jon "Red J" Sommariva!
Colors: Me (Monk)

Software: Painter IX.

Barret is an underrated character, nice to see a drawing based on his original model! I don't like his advent children version.

Barret was always in my party, along with Tifa and of course Cloud. Kickass drawing.

one of the many great and underated characters of final fantasy 7.(why don't they give this guy his own special spin-off?)

Woah! Shweetness from the Joe MAD style to the bent dog tags and shine over the tat, oh and everything in between!

Wonder what Barret would do about global warming!?

Now HERE is a guy you just don't see too much fan-art of. Major love for the trembling fist of inner rage. (^_^) Quite the stunning piece, too. Very moody with the dim lighting. I'd dare say this is quite possibly the best Barrett fan-art I've ever seen.

There's something in this one that has a familiar ring to it.... It really reminds me of Metal Slug in the way of the color scheme w/ Red's face, marvelous man!

A really great colouring job. I don't know the reference, and don't care, because the piece stands up amazingly well by itself. I like the fact that you've kept the tones down to a minimum - a lot of game homages seem to be too glaringly loud and bright. This has a nice grungy element to it but is still beautifully executed. Kudos to the pencils man too.

Haha, nice to see some FF fanart that doesn't include pale and anorexic people, for once. The lines are so distorted, it almost looks like a charicarure, but his badass still shines through. Excellent, gritty colours too.

You forgot the extremely masculine fishnet shirt!!! :giggle: Don't see a lot of Barret fan art, and hardly anything of this caliber; the dark, grungy feeling seems to fit right into the slums of Midgar. Excellent work!

I think he only had that fishnet shirt in the Advent Children movie, not the game...
I'm not sure though.

Yeah, I don't think the rendering would have been high res enough to catch it in the game even if he was wearing it...
