So yeah, had to make something ridiculous! Have been doing too much "serious" paintings. And this contest just felt right to go nuts on So here's my crab snail, with his DA jester hat and wacom pen! He crawls around, leaving nothing but destruction and agony in his path!!
[ANOTHER DAY IN IMAGINATION ISLAND] AWMAIGAWHGD I CAN FINALLY SLEEP!!!!!
Anyway this piece punched me in the face, threw me into a fiery santa chimney and repeatedly forced me to commit extended-rope bungee jumping off a rocky shore... that I seriously need background practice @_@ I am sorry past self for being lazy! Then again I have colors to practice and 3D effects to worry... OTL *SIIIIIIIIIIIGH*
So to cover up my skill level I made sure it had the air and atmosphere it had over there. The character pose was heavily inspired by *humon's experience in her journal. No matter what differences, we should all at least be able to greet each other without discrimination! Years back, the person I was dating at that time was awed by me saying hello to a stranger that walked by and commented "she's not even that cute!" Dude, am I secretly an alien from outer space without me knowing because I didn't know that there was such rule stating you can only greet someone who you're attracted to! I was just trying to be polite! Besides greeting someone is just manners in society; not a sign of potential flirting. Why am I randing on a contest entry?! This world is filled with mysteries...
Well this is my attempt to enter a contest (of course something Lightning related)...tried to think of something unique and not something people will over use. Then I thought of Odin and wanted to do his armor but I remember him being a chocobo in Lightning Returns so thus the Chocobo Knight was born (least in my head). Took about 3-4 days sketching out what I wanted and at first a knight be like full of metal plates but I decided for more mobility so a leather combination mixed in. Also since this is a customization contest I decided to throw in that you can change colors on this (i'm a black n white or black n red) examples on the bottom. Though I thought black and having gold running down it to make it look like lightning...*shurgs*
The main thing I wanted to show is the chocobo icon like everywhere. The helmet and shoulder guard is both a chocobo head while I made the feet like feet 8D and what better way to have a cape of feathers...its just fluffy. I didn't want to stray too far from the original FFXIII because I liked that outfit but yeah helmet is optional
EDIT i made the blossoms a bit darker because i thought they were too light.XD ///EDIT when i saw the news about this i went "OMG!!! I NEED TO GET THAT GAME!!!!!"XD i don't think i'll win because there are probably many great entries, but i'm taking a chance. this is Ammy and Issun from the game Okami.<333 i just love this game so much and now they came out with a Wii version!!! well~wish me luck~<333
So yeah, I decided to participate in this contest: [link]
Let's hope I get somewhere with this . Only heard of the contest 2 days ago, so I had to hurry to catch the deadline D:. But I played the game and it's friggin' awesome, so I had lots of fun drawing, at least ^^.
