Espoir by Otaku-J Espoir by Otaku-J
Here is my entry for the FF XIII Lightning returns contest :D
I gived her a more Sci-fi look :giggle:

About the equipement

The sword is in fact some kind of a ball placed into an arm bracelet..When she touches the heart symbol, the hilt comes out the ball.
Then with some hand pressure on the hilt, a thunderbolt appears from that ball and becomes a lightning sword.

The shield creates some energy when she holds it (always with hand pressure).

The neon color changes every 10-15 sec to each rainbow colors : red / orange / yellow / green / blue / indigo / violet
(And because I'm not good at all for explanations, I'll stop here xD)

About the outfit

The design is inspired by Mantas.
This was supposed to be one of my OC's outfit from my manga project ;p
But I never used it... The deadline being pretty short, I decided to use it and adapt it to Lightning. Now lighting is the light herself ! :slow:
Anyway, I hope you like it ! :la:

About me

I was dreaming of this kind of contest since so many years that I still have troubles to realize that it's for real now ! :excited:
I was like :omg: when I saw this contest and especially prices : An original sketch from Tetsuya Nomura (my idol ) :faint: :heart:

Thank you so much Deviantart to give me such a great opportunity ! :la: Banana Dance

le charadesign est cool mais ça fait très bizarre de voir Lightning porter ça, c'est très futuriste (en même temps je trouve les costumes de base très étranges donc je ne suis pas très objective en fait XD)

bonne chance pour le concours! :)

Hahaha c'est clair ! :iconxd1plz::iconlefthumbsupplz:

Mais bon vu la deadline super courte, j'avais pas le temps d'en créer un tout nouveaux du coup j'ai utilisé un concept de perso de mon "projet manga" et je l'ai adapté à Lightning ! :giggle:
Et puis le jeu étant lui même très futuriste, j'me suis dis que ça restait dans le contexte :p
(En même temps j'ai fait que le XIII, pitète qu'après c'est parti en couille lol :slow:)

Merci ! :D
Les résultats son censés tombés aujourd’hui mais y'a toujours rien :O
Limite je m'en fous de pas gagner (surtout vu le niveau des autres participants) mais j'aimerai bien être dans le top 50 et avoir été vue par Nomura :excited:
(Ça serait un de mes pitis rêves de réalisé :blush: revamp )

Forrgive me i can not see any relations between the art's content and the tittle, "L'espoir"

The anwer is simple :D

"Espoir" (french word) means "hope" (in english)
It was forbidden to use Lightning or FF13 into the tittle so I have used the feeling I had when creating this artwork :

Hope ;p
