Lightning Returns FFXIII- Charlotte Fox Suit by TaNyaKu Lightning Returns FFXIII- Charlotte Fox Suit by TaNyaKu
Here's my Entry
Wow, I'm glad i made it with 20hrs to spare too.I'm really happy with how it turn out it toke days to complete  but I think I really nailed i this piece. Although i feel  i don't quite portray Lightning's complex emotions, especially in her face. She usually has a soft, weary eyes, the kind that have seen too much pain and suffering .But in this portrait she seems stronger and more geared up... So i went with it... hope yo-all like it... luck 2 everyone!!

Thank you! <?xml:namespace prefix = da />:D (Big Grin) That is more of a compliment than I deserve.

I think you will make the transition into digital easily, but don't forget to keep up

you traditional skills! They will help you with your digital art. I look foward to your future work, digital and traditional!:happybounce: 

 As far as rivalry goesBonk , I would concider you a worthy opponent. You show a lot of potential! Don't give it up, no matter what!

We should work together sometime!Headbang! It'd be fun!

You seemed upset about your lack of color, but I think you definitely make up for that with your great details! I'm jealous of your metal work, that's a big weak point for me XD anyways great job on this, I'm glad you shared it with me :)

Thanks Bro, i'm glad you liked it... I actual came down to that conclusion after struggling to mimic her face onto my paper... i eventually gave up and just winged it... surprisingly no one seems to mind!!

Looks great man, incredible amount of detail. Good job!

Critique: her breasts feel way too high, unless those are actually her shoulders? If we were looking up at her the positioning would be okay. The face sort of thing on the emblem in the background is leaning on both sides, it feels more off than intentional.

Thanks for the comment!

Thank bro... i really see what mean here, i should work on my prospective more and for the shield i should work more Symmetrically (but oh, how i hate rulers and set-squares)...Also i should be less on the lady!! :perv:  
Thanks for the Critique, you're the first i ever got.... this really opens my eyes and gives me a better understanding of Art it-self!!
I thank you again!!

Here I flipped it for you, check it out.

Try to look at it not as a person against a background, but as a series of lines. This will help make any issues more clear. Best of luck man!

No problem, I'm sort of new to deviantart, and I come from a background of ALL CRITIQUES ALL THE TIME. So it just sort of happens lol.

I would stay away from rulers, instead, try turning your piece upside-down if you're working traditional, or flipping the canvas if you're working digitally. The new perspective will make mistakes very obvious.

Yeah i can see that... i usually place by the mirror but always forget where the mistakes are... but the up-side-down thing is really good!! thanks for the tip!!

I'm really digging this one. I love your sense of material especially using just a pencil for that metal sheen. Your pencil work on the details is awesome!

thanks i really work hard on this one.. I;m glad to see some Traditional Artist are still in the Game.... Digital is just taking over like wild fire ( why do suck so much at it):cheer up hug:.... 
My only regret is that it it came out so low-Res, man have to get Digital Art lessons at least something on pixels...

I can see why this took you days, the detail is stunning. I enjoyed reading the description too, I really like that you have drawn her to show strength as I think that through all she has been through it would definitely make her stronger and able to take on more. Needless to say the costume itself is awesome + kick ass too! There is so much in this to comment on! Can I ask if this is traditional or digital? Not that it matters of course I am just interested :) that background as well must have taken ages!

Thanks hey,i really appreciate your comment especially coming from a hardcore fan. I honestly enjoyed working on it although it did kill my wrist. Don't worry its Traditional with a touch of photshop... As you can see i cheated by drawing only one side of the background, then mirroring it on the other side... smart huh... " but don't tell no-bodie":paranoid:
