Lulu FFX by lithriel Lulu FFX by lithriel
My husband commenting while I was working on the jewelery: "Hey, her necklace isn't connected"
Me being smart: "Maybe it's magic..."
My husband: "You mean like how she uses magic to keep her dress on?"


This is my tribute to Lulu from FFX, one of my favorite characters from that game. She does look like she's always about to fall out of her dress, especially when she bends over after every battle. O_o

Lulu is such an intense character when you look at her, and I'm grateful that you captured that, especially with her eyes. 

I do agree, it is absolute bogus she can keep that dress on anytime a day... It's a mix between a push-up dress and something so loosely fitted she ought to drop it... 

I know it is a while ago you posted this piece, but I do have one suggestion. The drawing looks great, but my eye caught something which really bothers me. The entire thing is so neatly detailed and seems to have been drawn thoroughly. Then, all the way out to the right by her dress, it's as if the details kind of... die. I miss the dress hugging her shoulder being smoothed like it has been on the left side. That's all, though xD The rest is gorgeous to say the least.

This is soo beautiful

This would have to be the most realistic portrait of Lulu I have ever seen.
Simply astounding beyond words..
.. it would be nice if she looked a little more happy or just simply less mean.. but regardless this is still in a class all by itself!

BTW I did commission an artwork over a month ago starring Lulu.
It also features Yuna and some sensual bondage.
If you would care to have a look:

Though it is alright if you would rather not.. but I hope you enjoy :)

You MUST tell me how you managed to draw her so damn perfectly, which tools did you use?? especially her skin.. I'm really bad at it!
lithriel Featured By Owner May 21, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Sorry I am just getting back to you. I used the hard round brush and soft round brush set to pressure sensitivity with a tablet in photoshop. Paint like you would in real life building up the color.

There is no secret brush or tool when it comes to painting anything- whether skin or what have you. It's more about knowing about how light reacts to the surface you are painting. Realism comes with many hours of drawing from life with traditional medium and in my case an art degree on top of that. Reference helps in most cases especially if you are a beginner. In this case I did use a loose ref which helped me as a starting point to know where the light source is but it is unrecognizable from the source. Hope that helps!
LostOddity Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2012
Wow, this is just exquisite, she looks real! I love the textures/colours/etc. Definitely one for the favourites.

Definitley one of my favorite FF characters.

I still have beef with Wakka >__<.

Excellent EXCELLENT picture!!
Fenriswoelfin Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I should grab out my old PlayStation2 to see her again. Love LuLu for looking like a real hot black witch. Thanks for remember me. This Picture is so damn amazing! Great Work!
ShiningPirate Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Right? I always wondered why they let her bend over xD Like she is a total slut :C
Lulu was my favorite character with fighting, until I discovered how strong yuna and tidus were xD
And then I neglected her ;_; Oh well, union knight is way too hard to get anyway :dummy:(I CANT DODGE THAT MUCH LIGHTNING :C)

ANYWAY, nice art :3
lithriel Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
I was jittery for hours after dodging the lightning... Seriously, I was so stressed. Wakka's was the one I never bothered getting. Blitzball was zero fun for me.
ShiningPirate Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Blitzball sucks xD I never win, and Wakka is my weakest char anyway.
I think I only have yuna's celestial at full power xD Maybe Tidus his weapon too.. I can't remember. I guess I'm too lazy :>

Really cool, I really like this one, seeing there's so much pretty crappy Lulu art circling around on DA. I reckon she's a great character, and deserve more than that : (
But this one's amazing~ Instant fav.

Speaking of Lulu and falling out, I actually colored a Lulu-fanart a friend made not long ago. If you're a Lulu fan, you might like it :)
