I went back to the new one and tried to add in the things people said they liked about the old one like the lighter lines and colors. I also added some more detail to the city! Thanks for your feedback everyone!
I like the new one because I think the anatomy is more refined and it reflects my style more. The old one was more 'womanly' but the new one is more girly and I kind of think of Usagi as being pretty girly. I also like the way the new look reflects the stylization I'm using now. I altered the design of her dress a little to fit a closer image of Serenity's actual dress. I also took advantage of more resources on the new one which I think really improves the setting.
These are the photos I took in Lucca sometime ago with Operation one! I was so nervous .^. This was my third time shooting in a studio... Oh! By the way,the yellow lights were recreated in the studio...they're not special effects! We used a special machine which produced a soft,colorful smoke... *w*
This costume took me a lot of time to complete because I was lazy *sigh

Here is my entry for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII customization. I have always loved Final Fantasy ever since I was young. I still remember FF back in the old RPG days, so when I saw there was a contest for Final Fantasy, I jumped on the wagon!
This design was inspired by phoenix with the image of Lightning and Final Fantasy in mind.
