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.
Hope everyone likes!
