Urgh, these dimensions... lol.
Well, I'm just glad I managed to get 'something' submitted I guess. Tetsuya Nomura was the one that got me into drawing anime some years ago, so wouldn't have forgiven myself if I had missed this chance. Doubtful I'd win, but at least I can find happiness in knowing he will probably see my work (something I never would have imagined happen in my lifetime). I'd kill people for a signed drawing from him though... sob.
Anyways, good luck everyone. No doubt there will be some very deserving winners (many of the entries so far have been crazy good).
I'll probably edit in a link here later that will direct to the source artwork which had been cropped to fit the 2000/550px format. It didn't cut out that much, mind you, but in terms of composition, the extra bit definitely makes it looks better imo.
And yes, I went a bit crazy with the belts and buckles. I found it very appropriate.
Is there a full body of this art piece?
it s very different than the others! *-*
I like this. She reminds me of Sion from Xenosaga
Love how Lightning looks here, you really nicely expressed here Nomura, while adding something new from yourself.
Out of the hundred I viewed, this is in my top five. I love the attitude you expressed through her pose and expression. The outfit is really badass as well.
Looks saucy Very well done!
clean and stylish. Always wanted to move in that direction of arts
Love the style! Hope you are one of the winners. Good luck!
really cool art man.
your description...our feels are the same T^T
But hey! Who knows? Maybe he'll see your entry! (it's not hard to miss it's so pretty~)
Your style's really great and I love what you came up with. Like seriously. That sword tho.
The gangsta look suits her wonderfully1 Awesome job man
It came out amazing! The format is kinda neat, like a nice banner.
Preferably, I would've had more time to flesh out a proper character sheet. Not big on anime banners, as they're done to hell nowadays. But thanks
Amazing as always. I think the belts and buckles along with that chain are the best part.
Good luck in the contest .
I know right? The dimensions kinda killed mine. (I didn't read the rules properly lol)
Glad you could improvise and produce something awesome like this, great job and good luck.
I flat out ignored the formatting and just made what I thought should fit snuggly in 2000x550. It so did not. lolllll
But yea, best of luck to you
*O* she looks pretty damn good! Very clean lines and colors!!
This looks absolutely fantastic. I wish I could do weapons this well. (Sorry, I'm blade-driven. Well done on the whole piece though)
