Lode Runner Lightning by Gevurah-Studios Lode Runner Lightning by Gevurah-Studios
Hi all!,

This is a very very late entry into the Lightning Returns art competition, but I just couldn't resist the urge to design something really unique for her!.

I have been a fan of the Final Fantasy series of games since I can remember first picking up a controller and I am stoked to be able to take part in this competition. I have gone in a little bit of a different direction with this design and chosen to base Lightnings armour and Weapon off a enemy in the game called the Lodestar Behemoth. The Lodestar Behemoth represents to me the difference between true nature and manufactured nature. This reflects on the fact that Lightning herself is almost a manufactured soldier with her training and mindset.

The Lode Runner Garb, is composed of armour elements of the Lodestar Behemoth, including sensory tendrils and lightweight protective equipment. 

Here is the basic sketch of the costume that we designed for the Lode Runner outfit, we tried incorporating as many aspects of the Lodestar as possible while keeping the raw agility of Lightning : gevurah-studios.deviantart.com…

Good luck to everyone who has participated in this competition, there have been some brilliant ideas with even more beautiful artwork, I cannot wait to see the winners :)

Warm Regards,
Asher

This is a really good piece! The posture keeps the sense of movement alive, and the outfit also suits this. The light spots gives the piece a surreal look, although I'm not sure whether it's good to do that with a cold/grey background
There are some things I think is off though. The face seems really smoothed out, particularly the nose, and the left eye (viewer's perspective) seems off somehow.. :blankpat: Also, the back seems unnaturally straight. I don't know if this is a particular style of FF but it seems weird.
Other than that, everything's perfect! The wind and dirt especially incorporates and emphasises the sense of speed.
(I've only played FF1, don't hate me.)
What do you think?

Wow! Very nice 3D representation! It almost looks like a screenshot taken from a video game; there is a very good graphism. Also like the way you represented the lights around; adds some more intensity to the picture.

I admit I do have an interest in the FF games series even though I've only played FF XIII (that was pretty good). So I am familiar with Lightening! I've seen the trailer to Lightening Returns and it looks amazing :) I really love this picture of Lightening - she really looks sleek and very seductive. You done well with details and colouring, especially with her outfit. I wish you the best of luck in the contest! :D

I just can't find anything wrong here .____. this is just too perfect, you're already a pro
i'd prefer more "vivid" and "detailed" background than "blurred' one, perhaps. but that's only my preference

I like this one :)

Since you want some "critique", here is some: :P
- She's looking kinda casual while falling or in the middle of some "action" going on
- On her right hand: wouldn't the top of her index finger appear below he middle finger?
- She's looking quite a bit younger, might be intentional or an effect from drawing in the style you did

Good luck!

I tried to keep her calm and collected looking in the middle of a fight to try and portray her level of mental training :). Thanks for your critique!
