Warrior's Heart by KlaudNYNE Warrior's Heart by KlaudNYNE
My last min entry. OMG I'm so tired from this but this is a very good contest and my first. This pushed me to do my very best. I know I don't have a snowball's chance of winning top 3 what with all the amazing entries but just to get in the qualifying 50, I'll be happy with that. And the main reason for me entering was because TETSUYA NOMURA WILL BE JUDGING! :heart::heart::heart::heart::heart: Just to have him see my piece will be enough for me. I'm his number one fan XD 

As for my concept, I wanted to keep with FF13 base mythology. That being Norse. I wanted to make Light's outfit a fusion of the past and future. It looks a bit futuristic but has elements of medieval armor. Futuristic viking style. I haven't seen her in fur outfits so I'm hoping that will catch some eyes. And Vikings pray to their gods such as Odin, Thor, Tyr, etc. for protection so to help me with my concept I kind of made up a poem about her. 

Today I put on the power of heaven,
the light of the sun,
the splendor of the moon.

Today I wield the blaze of fire,
the fierceness of lightning,
the swiftness of the wind,
the depth of the sea.

Today I uphold the firmness of the earth,
and the hardness of rock.

One the Thirteenth hour,
I am the Savior of mankind.
I am Lightning.

Wish I could have put this poem on my entry but they say u can't have the name/word LIGHTNING in it >.<
And I wish could have finished her weapon. So much stuff I would love to add but time is of the essence. 

Used Photoshop and Illustrator for this.

I agree, there was so much I wanted to do but ran out of time to throw it all on. I would appreciate any critiques as this is my first piece on a Cintiq/Photoshop, my first deviantart posting,
and my first contest!

I wouldn't know where to begin XD I've never used a Cintiq, let alone saw one in person. 
I've been using my old Bamboo tablet all these years. I think I need an upgrade >.< but so expensive.

There's a lot of amazing ones, yes, but yours is great too!! So no need to fret :) At least you were able to enter, and with a cool design too~ I had actually tried entering as well but I couldn't even get past the sketch stage because the required dimensions of the banner was too hard for me to work with lol, I wasn't satisfied with any of my sketch ideas. So you're already doing better than I did xD

Thank u :hug: 
Oh u were going to enter too? I want to see your concept XD
I drew mine full on PS and I used Illustrator to put it together. Illustrator keeps the resolution from getting pixelated. I didn't start drawing on the required dimensions. There were no rules for that.

I actually didn't even finish or keep the sketch I made..^^; But that's a good method you used O: But tbh even if I were to try that method, I still couldn't think of anything decent for a banner since all my ideas would end up requiring a drawing space that's taller than it is wide, which didn't meet the requirements. It wouldn't have translated well to the banner format unfortunately ^^'''

The design looks awesome and fits lightning very well

The armour has a great amount of detail and the fur goes along with the armour greatly

Wish you the best of luck
