Oriental Fury Lightning by FionaCanajART Oriental Fury Lightning by FionaCanajART
For Lighning returns contest!
Haha  it's so much fun to see  how artist are trying to make lighning fit in the picture x)
*So I recently figured out that there is a top 50 that Nomura will be looking at not to all the works!lol It's sad since I joined this contest for him*
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I have always been fascinated from the beauty of Japanese culture!And as FF is one of the most famous Japanese game brands making a "empress-geisha"-outfit for Lightning seems legit right?^^; I remember when I played FFXII for the first time and since then I  wanted to see her in a long-light-sexe(lol) outfit ,as she's really pretty and gorgeous and AHSKFJ QuQ....So all in all, this contest was a nice chance for me to show you guys my own idea of outfit I would play with in FF!
=======================================================
Anyway drew it in anime style (so I don't expect much since anime/manga in contests are always ignored),the outfit like I wrote is a crossover of empress gow and geisha kimono.All the designs(BG,outfit,patterns,flowers,etc)are all hand drawn and made by me.I thought an elegant weapon like a samurai sword would be super cool to use in the game so here it is.As for the hairstyle,well you know how crazy I can be with oriental-designs but this time I didn't wanted to change her hair!I mean changing Lightnings hair is just like changing Lara Croft's hair they wouldn't be the same lol
The small version of her is just to show you the full body outfit(the pose looked cool it self so I didn't add a seat or something like it)
Tried my best on this one,It really was fun drawing her,hope you like it 
And good luck to all the other contestants Hug

Wow, the outfit... pretty eye-catching...  Yes, we can say the eyes are quite attracted to the detail on the legs, right... :D (What? I can't hide that lol)

But still, all these details, and these colors... probably the result of a lot of work.

Oh wow, I love the Japanese style theme to the drawing, especially the clothes and the overall design :D Lightning looks very beautiful and so feminine too, and yes I do agree with the samurai sword suiting her. All the best of luck in the contest! :D

*bows to the mother of the details* goddamit this is so beautiful adn detailed and i just *heavy breathing* 
i've been staring at it for couple of minutes and wondering how. Did you draw it with pencils first or how?? Do you own a tablet?

:iconfionacanajart:
FionaCanajART Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Lol wow thanks so much no one ever called me like that excited 
 I have a tablet since it takes to much time to make it with pencils first and then go on it with digital brushed, I draw it directly with my tabled normally I do lots of doodles that help me out while drawing and the composition so it's almost the same thing ^_^
Thanks for commenting cupcake :heart:

I love this one. The design flows beautifully with the brightness and the contrast of the colors into one direction and not all over the place. you did a really good job with keeping the eye focused on going one direction which.  This is definitely a different look/ a new approach for Lightning in the new up coming FFXIII.  I really love it.  I wish you the best of luck. I hope that you do make it up into the top 3.

Thanks so much for the kind words I hope the design is not to "much" for the FFXIII tho x) I just wanted to do something totally different from the armors and FF inspired outfits I saw around so I really hope master Nomura likes it ^_^ Thanks again sweetheart :heart:

I don't think that your design is too much for FFIII at all. I'm sure that Nomura will like it.

And you are welcome!!:hug:2 rvmp 

btw, thank you for the watch, Fiona.:tithug:

This just looks too cluttered, I think it's beautiful nonetheless, but you need to keep a balance between flat, unpatterned and patterned surfaces, this is too much pattern and I think this will be the problem with this piece in the competition, the overall presentation of this piece doesn't have clear focus points.

Thx I thought of that before,
I thought on adding a layer of color and blend it so It would fade a bit the details and focus the attention on the character but they looked so pretteh It was hard to destroy them lol,maybe I'll try and edit that later once the contest is over,thx btw :heart:
