Well, this is my design for the Lightning Returns: FF XIII Contest.
This is inspired part by Lumina and part by my passion: the kimono.
Since the main theme in this new game is the time, I thought it was a good idea to add the clockwise in Lumina's style, and create a red & black kimono with some belts (very Lightning's style) and golden adds. And of course a pair of swords in japanese style. She's deadly with any kind of weapon!
This is something that Lightning could wear in the game.
As a fan of Square Enix and Lightning, I must say I was totally excited with this contest. But I didn't know if I'd have enough time, due the university assignments.
But since I love Final Fantasy and I saw awesome entries, I finally decided to give a try.
But whatever the result be, it has been really funny and Lightning is a wonderful model
I always wanted to know if here was a place somewhere else on this universe compared to earth. I guess I never thought it could be a moon . I present you the alpha centauri solar system. Hidden from human eyes this system is amazingly beautiful. Like a treasure waiting to be found it will wait untill someone discovers all among them.
This entry is created for the contest: Beyond Frontiers, Unknown Moons
Well, this totally didn't just take forever. I'm happy with the end results but I still feel slightly unsatisfied about the even distribution of space in this picture. Hopefully it's visually interesting enough with all the details.
This is a garb based off of the Angel of Valhalla questline in the game. I didn't design a weapon this time because I thought it would make the overall image too busy. It's not like we were given a lot of space. I would have liked to, though. Wish me luck!
All of the armor carry chocobo inspiration:
The neckguard is shaped like the harness plate on chocobo beaks.
Next to that, the scarf brooch is a two-faced illusion. When viewed with one mindset, it looks like a chocobo at full-frontal view. With another mindset, it looks like a chocobo at 1/4 view. Her pauldron (shoulder armor) is meant o look like a chocobo head, using a blue-green gem for the eye. There are two layers. Both of these items are designed to convey two-part chocobo motions. One is switching from looking forward to looking to the side in alertness of new sensory information. The other symbolizes bobbing of the head.
Her shield is decorated with feather and wing motifs. An artificial tassel hangs, imitating the tassle feathers on either sides of a chocobo's head. Just above that on the outermost layer of the shield is an oval-like linchpin cover. That's an interpretation of what is known as a Gysal Seed, a seed that grows Gysal Greens, an item choobos eat in the game.
Both sleeves are tougher on the outside and flexible on the inside. This is for chocobo riding, particularly when you go through woods and branches try to scratch your clothes. This will help the sleeves keep longer.
The plates down her right side are based off of chocobo beaks and decorated with feather patterns.
Her inner dress as well as her leggings bear silver feather and wing patterns.
The left leg's shin brace is a chocobo head above a set of flapping wings.
I usually just think this to myself, but sometimes I think it might be fair to just warn people.

The font is an edited version of "Annie use your Telescope" from Google's free fonts.
EDIT: Yay semifinals! I'm very happy to be in consideration, even though everyone else's entry makes mine look WAAAY too simple, haha. Being a semifinalist also means I can't reprint this design on my own (due to the rules about rights), but if this doesn't win, I suppose I can make up a new design and reword the quote so people can still buy a version. :3
I just had to enter the last Anthro Challenge for this year and I figured I'd draw my girls. New Year's is always spent best with people you love, and the Guepardina sisters have plenty of love to go around. Having them take a selfie during a fireworks show is a bit ironic, as in real life, all four cats are skittish around fireworks. But it's anthro, so we're fudging things.
I was originally going to do a phone selfie, but morteraphan has been posting these really cool polaroid style pictures, and I just wanted to do a polaroid. Because this is art. And polaroids are awesome.
Here's my entry for Anthro Challenge #126 "Year's End Customs!"
The holiday season is always full of fun traditions and things to do, but I think one of my favorites is spending time with my family as we go downtown to watch a holiday-themed parade-type performance that takes place on the street, which is closed for the duration of the event (only about an hour). Although watching the performance is fun, standing on the bridge and peering down to the road, watching people, waiting for it to start, and just spending time with my family (something I don't get to do often enough anymore) is probably the best part!
