Hiding in plain Sight by NightysWolf Hiding in plain Sight by NightysWolf
I laugh with a twisted smile
Now that smile is the only one I can make.
The tears that dripped inside the mask
Have expanded the mask. And on top of that...
I wore another mask.



I can only imagine how Cloud must have felt back in Nibelheim. Just inches away and yet a whole universe standing between him and all he loved...

Cloud: FilorNotAlwaysMe/Sticklove/Bstylez
Nibelheim: TheFil
Tifa: Danniellahill/Nighthawk1984
Zack: Rexil
Helmet: renzo-senpai


Made in XNALara, render in Blender Cycles and edit in Photoshop!

Thank you - yeah, Cloud's story is definitely a tragic one - especially in Nibelheim! :cries:

Yes, but that's what makes his character even more appealing :heart:

In XNALara there is a option called "Backface Culling" and "Always force Culling". If you active those too, it might be possible that the error disappears. I can't tell you for sure since I manually corrected a bunch of those models after download with Blender.

it worked with one side of the shoulder pad but the left shoulder pad doesnt change :/

I was afraid of that. >_< Then the only chance is a manual correction in Blender where the doubles from the pads are removed and the normals have to be rearranged. Sadly a lot of Crisis Core-Models have that problem.

Trial and error - in my first 1 1/2 years with XNALara and Blender I was more than once tempted to smack the wall in frustration. :XD:

If nothing works I can try to fix the model for you. :) This is the one of MindForcet, right?

Aww... it always makes me sad when cloud hid from tifa in Nibemheim, he was so ashamed that he never made it to SOLDIER

Look at that!! Oh heck- I love, LOVE the pose you gave Tifa. As if she's all "is there someone?" while Zack talks to her. It's great, really! And Clouds face... he looks so pained - as if he wouldn't want to keep his identity a secret but feels as if he has no other choice right now.

And Zack... careless as always, doesn't really notice at that point.
I love it. You did a great job!! :eager:
