Anyway, I've been itching to draw some FF lately and this gave the perfect excuse so lyk Y not.
Also an original sketch from TESTUYA NEMURA HOW COULD I NOT? coughs
At first I was planning on designing some armor. But after seeing some of the other entries i realized that there'll probably be a gajillion armor customizations, so I tried going for something a bit more relaxed/modern instead, while still keeping the Final Fantasy feel to the design. Also tried not to overdo it on the detail to try and keep the design 'Fanart-friendly', yet still make it look pretty/far from plain ^u^
win or lose tho it was fun. Wish me luck! c:
Thanks to everyone who joined me on my livestream of this!
Now if you'd excuse me i gots other arts to work on o)-<
This is my first entry for dA's Insidious 2 contest.
The Theme: I created this image based on my everyday activity- drawing- but this time something has gone horribly wrong. I've turned my back for one moment, and something sinister is coming for me. Haha. I guess my creations are sick of all the bright colors
The back half is painted traditionally and the front half is painted in photoshop. I used all my own stock and reasources. I haven't done anything more than simple edits on photoshop in over a year. I know I need more practice It was so frustrating trying to achieve the look that I was actually going for....and this is miles away from what I'd actually like this picture to look like. I may try and refine this and make a better version if I have time. Otherwise, I'm happy enough with it for now.
This is based on my old concentration from AP art. Specifically this piece: [link] I actually like the older piece better (because I know I don't excel at photoshop right now) but I wanted to try something new and go for a different effect.
Known as Gem-chan (Zemu-chan in romaji) at her school, taken from "G" initial. Her name against her appearance. Everyone called her Gem, because of her pureness and princess alike. No one knows that she's prentended as normal player when the "reaper game" begins. At first, she's should be player's friend, and later show her form as "the reaper" when it's turns. Her ranks as reaper is high, with her speed and flee. In fact, she doesn't know that she did it wrong, because she enjoys to play as "reaper".
Old Version: [link] This was one of the first piece I submitted to dA back in 2009. It was my best piece at the time and I still think it's a pretty good one. I was almost afraid I wouldn't show any improvement but I at last I did and I'm proud of it.
My submission for Lightning Return contest. Kinda last minutes but it was fun. i was watching my friend played the game and from the opening fmv i heard that they were speaking about Lightning as a soul collector role. So it might be interesting if i combined both Valkyrie and Mecha concepts all together for this outfit.
