lightning | dogchain by Jakuu lightning | dogchain by Jakuu
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.

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.

Your style's really great and I love what you came up with. Like seriously. That sword tho.

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 :)

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. :happybounce:

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 :)

Your designs aren't bad man.
Considering you intend to make them into actual models, it's far more complicated than the stuff I manage.
