Here is my entry for the FF XIII Lightning returns contest
I gived her a more Sci-fi look 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
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 !
Anyway, I hope you like it ! About me
