Violet Grimoire by Pechan Violet Grimoire by Pechan
My entry for the FF13 contest held on DA!

Was hard trying to make an armor for Lightning, all the ideas I had already seemed to be used up. So I tried to go for a more 'cloth' kind of garb, and went into a magical looking one instead of physical. I went for a book as a shield, and a large black rose 'pen' as the melee weapon. Making a horizontal composition that would look pleasing to the eye while showing my whole concept was tricky too. 

Honestly there are so many incredible entries I can only hope that my entry makes the final cut, so that even if I don't win it would still be viewed by Tetsuya Nomura. So for like a second he would know that I exist as an artist, hahaha!! That thought really motivated me to participate and finish. =D

Hope everyone likes!

Such a fantastic design~ I love the composition in this!

Would you mind if I ever turned this into a cosplay in the future? I love all the wonderful details in this, but it does not looks cluttered at all.

This design style reminds me of the Dark Magician from Yu-Gi-Oh! :D

Magnificent! And it actually looks way truer to Lightning than most contest entries I have seen pop up on DA lately!
The design of the dress is absolutely stunning, blending well together the fine design you would expect of such a dress with those details that remind us that Lightning is supposed to be a total badass! (those zippers <3, the chained grimoire!)
The design of the rod is pretty cool too~

Aw, thank you so much! Truth be told I went through a couple designs before settling on this one. My previous ones felt too FFX-2 like those Black Mage dress spheres, so this was definitely a fun challenge to try to create something uniquely fitting to Lightning. =)

A challenge and a success, I would argue!
