Lightning by friedChicken365 Lightning by friedChicken365
I just finished playing through Final Fantasy XIII and I think that it is quite possibly the most beautiful video game I have ever played. I thought I should give it proper tribute with my favorite character of the game, Lightning. I think I remember drawing Lightning before, but it's not that great anyway. You can see it here: [link]

I must say, it's about time Square Enix made the protagonist a female, since most of their protagonists act like girls anyway.

I also quite enjoyed the game itself. Yeah, I know the game has been getting a lot of negative reviews for its linearity and no towns and whatnot, but I don't care. Think what you will, but I liked it, and I'm no stranger to the Final Fantasy franchise.

All that nonsense aside, I recently came upon these fabulous new inventions called blending stumps. Why haven't I used them before? They're like magic!

Materials:
Bristol Recycled Drawing Paper 8.5 x 11 in
Pencils: Mechanical 0.7mm HB and 2B, Wooden 2H and 4B
Magic Rub Eraser
Blending Stumps
Reference

FINAL FANTASY WHAT WHAT :O

I LOVE how you captured every detail from the picture. At first glance I thought this was the actual image. You did such a wonderful job; I am amazed beyond words. Clap
