Cat's in the Cradle by CrimsonSun Cat's in the Cradle by CrimsonSun
My child arrived just the other day
He came to the world in the usual way
But there were planes to catch, and bills to pay
He learned to walk while I was away
And he was talkin' 'fore I knew it, and as he grew
He said,
I'm gonna be like you, dad
I'm gonna be like you

-Cat's in the Cradle, Harry Chapin

Colouring sucks. I hate colouring.

(And don't tell me this song has very little to do with Hojo and Seph - I know that already. ^^; )

i think Sephiroth may have attachment to him, he actually protected Hojo,  if he hated Hojo he wouldnt do it, and Hojo was proud of him, Sephiroth didnt have anyone else who would be close to him, everyone else was too out of the place for him with their constant joyfull ranting about family anddating

Hojo's a bastard >> I think he's the game's true villain and poor Sephi is a pawn.

I know the song, I think it's not so far from Seph/Hojo relation !
Really nice drawing !

No, no, I can see the connection. :) And I love the ever-so-slight lowered tilt of Sephiroth's face, as though we're just catching him as he rushes on out of the room.

Very nice work!

Little Seph~!!
Awgh!! This is so, so, so....ah!! I love little Seph! And that he has shadows from his hair because that's like...such an epic detail that is so sad when it's not there. And the angle is just so totally cool, and...

It's Hojo. Who is like...Hojo. Who apparently defies adjectives as well as the laws of nature!
But really, I just like this for so many reasons. :heart:

You're so win...

Hm, I still wonder how Sephiroth grew up. I am not one of Hojos fans, but he is one awesome character! Wonderful picture and colours... even you don't like it! =3

<3 It's adorable!

Your coloring isn't as bad as you say, I like it. It's really fun but this fanart and those lyrics really remind me of my fic in progress Alive-de Seven, except for the last line. It would rather be "I'm gonna kill you, dad" or something alike...
IlluminedCraft Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2009
I LOVE the way this turned out, hon. <3

And I think the song works in a twisted way... twisty, twisty. ;D
YamiMichelle Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2009
Uh...didn't Sephiroth hate Hojo? Why would he want to be like him?
CrimsonSun Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2009
*Points to author's note where it says I know this song has very little to do with these two ;)*
Rainichan Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2009
pfft. You know what I think about this, I'm sure. 8)

nice work
DeactivatimusPrime Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2009
I actually think this turned out very nice. :D And for some reason, I've heard this song used in conjunction with Hojo and Sephiroth before.
Admirer-w Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2009
Well, no one knows something about Hojos childhood, right? Maybe his dad was an work obsessed scientist too... ARGH, what am I doing here?! Defending Hojo?? I need more sleep... GO,SEPH!!
(Great picture, by the way!)

I actually love the coloring on this. I wish I could color like that.

Actually, this song has a HUGE lot to do with Hojo and Sephiroth and you win the Internet of all internets for putting it in here! You are amazing!!!! :heart:
