Lightning Returns: Pulsian Warder by courtneyuy Lightning Returns: Pulsian Warder by courtneyuy
My entry for the contest. My take on Lightning wearing Pulsian clothing though I tried to avoid drawing too much inspiration from already existing characters from Gran Pulse. I wanted her clothing to still reflect her personality, and I hope I succeeded even just a little? XD

The sword is called Viltgance. Enscribed in Pulsian script is "Despite the darkness, there is light."

I hope you like it! :D

She looks so awesome and adorably dangerous at the same time. I definitely think you caught her personality in this (it doesn't look out of place on her at all... that's hard to do with Lightning O.O ) And that sword is amazing. I feel like this version would fit well in FF12's world. I especially love the portrait you have in the center, it looks really nice and disney-ish

I'm not sure why, but the style you chose reminds me of Journey. Awesome job and good luck!

Thank you! And, yeah, I totally sifted through a bit of XII while I was sketching weapons and even the original Lightning sketch had very Rabanastran pants going on before I opted for leggings instead.

I've heard a lot about what other artists my work is reminiscent of, many of which are definitely inspirations of mine! - though unfortunately I have yet to play Journey. ): Last semester an instructor of mine said I had a very Bastion-esque thing going on. I'm also really into the game art for Valdis Story. Cute games are my weakness! XD

Yup, I totally see the Rabanastran in this. XD

I played a demo of Journey, but that was it, unfortunately. I listen to the game music now to fill the void :l I read about Valdis Story recently! I love the art direction of that game. And I totally get the "cute games are my weakness". There were two reasons why I purchased Drawn to Life. 1) It involved art, and I found that to be awesome. 2) The raposas are ridiculously cute! (I agree with your instructor... I see a little bit of that style in this)

Ivalice is such a beautiful setting and I hope they revive it again. The lore of that world is so complex and imaginative that it would be shame not to revisit it.

The Journey soundtrack is beautiful, and the ending song is fantastic! As for Valdis Story, I've yet to play, but I've heard great things about it. I've never owned a DS so I missed out on Drawn to Life and many other Nintendo titles. We're a Sony family, but oh how I miss Pokemon in my life! XD
