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.
