That's definitely Reno. Great background and pose! But why did you put on him nail enamel? XD It's the only thing that doesn't fit so much with his personality (imho), but he's cool anyway so it doesn't matter. ;)

I looove this! Only thing is, Reno didn't have long hair back in the day (I think...) :D (just incase you didn't know!) But I love the picture, I love the whole idea of Reno 'before Shinra'. I've been reading a fanfic based on that :) This picture helps the imagination haha

 I played a bit of Before Crisis so I know he didn't have long hair- but I don't think it made any sense that he could grow his hair sooooooo long in such a short period of time after BC :XD:

 So this is my vision.

I think your colouring is amazing! Teach me how you make it look like there is no lineart, :o

But anyway, I love how the scene looks! I can totally imagine Reno hanging around some random alley, smoking and drinking booze. Lovely! :heart:

I really like the idea and the execution. I know this is old(ish), but it's still great. :) It makes sense, is in character, and is all around well drawn. Good job. :) As always, his face, hair, and eyes stand out particularly. Anatomy is mostly perfect too. (you are very good at hands) great job. :)

Wow, I never really thought about what Reno did before shinra..... Sorta just took his past for granted. That's actually really interesting if you think about it! And your art is beautiful as usual. :heart:

Heh, your next Reno should have tattoos of Axel's chakrams. :p

I like this one a lot, though; I love AUs and other alternate sorts of things, so seeing Reno out of uniform is really cool. ^_^
