The return of Lightning: Steampunk Style by SamuelDesigns The return of Lightning: Steampunk Style by SamuelDesigns

I can't believe it. I was a little bit skeptical about participating in this contest, knowing is a well known game. And after I found out it was an international competition, even less I felt like participating. But I have to say I'm pretty happy with my job. :la:

 Now unto the details of the work. This work was for Deviantart competition and here I give you my Lightning.   At first I did a sketch of a woman in that position, and like always I had no idea for the costume. So I used one of my original characters, "Zephenia" to use her outfit. The idea was completely hand drawn, and later colored in Photoshop Elements. The worse part I have to say it was the sand monster. I only saw a few pictures online of it, and I almost had to imagine the hole back of the monster since I could only find front ones.

LightningYayz for Kalvanas The steampunk idea came from the colors scheme. At first I divide sections of my designs with random colors and later work on them piece by piece. But the colors looks so good I just had to leave them like that. The collar part I think I like it a ton because it looks like she is a flowering blooming. The only part I didn't draw was the landscape which I used a photostock so tiny I had to basically do the rest of it like the sky and the infinitive look, also the gears on the sword. The lightning sword was a collaboration idea of my brother and I, and it can become one or separate to created electricity between them for a more powerful impact. The marks on her face is like a make up or a tattoo that some people use to go to battle. It seems pretty appropriate, and I wanted to push the boundaries of the competition, because I noticed not many wanted to mess up with her face. 

Chocobo Knight It took me around  4 days and between 15 to 20 hours. I end up dizzy many times trying to finish it on time but I'm happy with the results.  

PLEASE GIVE ME FEEDBACK. WISH ME LUCK!:larryla:
