I honestly am astounded and amazed by the sheer amount of GREAT AMAZING ENTRIES! My artwork doesn't ever stand a chance against all this beautiful artworks! I also tried but in no way does it ever comes up par with all these entries! Here is my entry and I promise you the next artworks after this will me a million times better! I just want to show off my artwork and how it compares to hundred of other great entries! I want to feature it as well because it may not be part of the top 50. or top 100. top 200 or top 500 I am happy with the time I spent designing and creating her. I like Lightning she's totally badass although I haven't played the game yet because I dont have a console so I just watch scenes from youtube xD Anyway Ahh I'm ranting Lets continue on to the features!
Kimono Lightning Customization Banner by moonlight-fox

In the beginning I was thinking of featuring my very own top 50 but after looking at my collection and being heartbroken and getting my mind blown because off all the awesome and I can't choose, I decided to feature majority of my collection! I only removed a few because of slight misformatting caused by them not using the prescribed size of the image. Anyway I am proud to showcase my top 154 amongst the thousands that submitted! I am proud to say I looked at all the entries from the beginning until the deadline! Thumbnails are in no particular order (Just the order on when I placed them on my collection so the thumbs that came first are most likely the people who submitted their entry early on)

My message to everyone featured here! you may or may not make it to the top 50 and the finals but consider yourselves a winner! I think all your entry are majestic! I know everyone put a lot of effort into their work and it clearly stood out! I hope Tetsuya Nomura notices your skills! I guess if he could do a sketch for 154 of you he probably would! Thank you for listening to my ramblings! Onwards! Check out the great Lightning Returns Banner Customization Artworks!

Thank You for the featureLove

I agree that there was so much good art work entered that while it was inspiring and fantastic to see, it was a little saddening to compare my own art work to them and thinking I got no change. None the less I had fun and I'm I'm happy I made something, now I also feel encouraged and honored that some one took the time to notice my work, your fantastic and I wish all the best of lock to everyone that entered and hope encouragement and support  to all to develop their skills and make more art w00t!

The amount of comment and feedback I got in this journal is already a reward for me in itself! Its really a great pleasure to showcase the artwork I enjoyed and in return also be thanked by the artists. I think that is a great honor!

I'm really hoping there would be more Square Enix related contest :3

Thank you for creating an artwork I can thoroughly enjoy! :D
and also thank you for the kinds words!
By now I already know I am not "technically" or "conceptually" a good artist. I really just draw for fun and amusement and hobby. I want to improve and become great someday but I still have a long way to go! I need to practice and study more! and I would like to believe that although I'm a late bloomer when it comes to art I'll get to my goal someday!

Thank you and no problem!

I was honestly really discouraged when I saw the thousands of great entries with amazing drawings and fantastic ideas but i went for it anyways and it feels so good that someone took the time to post it on their blog when i thought it wouldn't get noticed at all. So thank you^^
I wish you and everyone luck and hope everyone had fun doing this!! I love Lightning's character and I would totally do this again if there was another chance XD
