Knight of the Red Rose by dagga19 Knight of the Red Rose by dagga19
Well, since a lot of people suggested me to enter the Lightning Returns contest, I couldn't refuse^^ (especially when it come to one of my favourite characters ever!)

So here is the outfit I created for my beautiful Lightning^^ I hope you will like it^^ I kept some of her original outfits features^^ But there is one big issue: the dimensions required are very very small, so I had to reduce the size of my drawing, and it kinda ruins the quality -_-
You can see the real size version here:
nsa31.casimages.com/img/2014/0…

I hope you can tell that it's a shield next to the sword :p
Among the submissions, only 50 entries will be selected and sent to Nomura-san; I really hope I'll be one of them, it would be such an honor ;)

EDIT: I have added a zoomed-in version so that you can see properly Lightning's face ;)

EDIT2: Unfortunately, it seems like among the submissions, not a single traditional work made it to the semi-finals -_- Guess it's hard to compete with digital art....

Je trouve ces vêtements superbes! J'aime beaucoup ce style! Pour moi (et c'est totalement positif) c'est un mélange entre du Sakura (card captor) et du Kingdom Hearts! <3 Bonne chance!!!
Et ces couleurs sont un trèèèèès bon choix pour moi... du rouge et du doré, c'est le "must"! ^^ J'aime aussi beaucoup ses bottes et ses gants...C'est du plus bel effet. :love:

Merciii, ah toi aussi tu as pensé à Card Captor? quand j'ai fini le dessin, j'ai moi aussi trouvé que ça avait des airs de CC, et pourtant je ne m'en suis pas du tout inspirée^^ ravie que les couleurs te plaisent, j'ai repris les couleurs qui allaient le mieux à Light par rapport à sa tenue de FF13 et de LR^^

Oui, j'ai pensé dès que j'ai vu en petit en fait... Mais j'ai aussi pensé au dessin de Lightning en Lady Oscar... ^^'" Ca fait penser aussi, hein, je profite pour commenter ici car j'ai du le zapper.. :s Et je trouve que comme tu dis vu que les roses et Lightnin ca va avec alors ca doit très bien aller pour Lady Oscar aussi! Donc JOLIE IDEE!!!
Le rouge et le doré sont mes couleurs préférées... alors ça me touche encore plus! ;]

Well, Mademoiselle Dagga19, let me tell you that before reading the description I thought this was a fanart of one of the outfits Lightning wears during the game. It really looks Final Fantasy-like and whats more it looks like something Lightning would wear;). The sword is really cool.
OMG!!! I read about the contest and now I'm nervous. I totally understand how you feel, knowing that there is a chance that Nomura-sensei will take a look at one of your drawings >w< I'd give anything to win that contest but I suppose since we're talking about FF here there will be LOOOooootS!!! of people submitting their entries *sniff*. I want to give it a try anyway, that is, if I manage to draw something decent between what's left of today and tomorrow.
Sorry Dagga, excuse me for getting carried away with my excitementX )
Anyway, I wish you the best of luck. We all know you're a great fan of the series and all your drawings are made with great love.
Nobody can deny it'll be a hard battle but Hope is the last thing to lose, right Lighting?:)
P.S: is it me or you made her extra busty on purpose?

dagga19 Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2014
Whoa, I'm really honored that you actually thought it was a real outfit!!:happybounce: :happybounce: Yes, there are indeed lots and lots of great contributions, that's almost depressing lol! But I prefer it this way, it show how popular Lightning is!

Thank you so mh for your kind encouragements! And you're absolutely right, we can't lose Hope :)

Ow, for the bust, I didn't do it on purpose, it was the first time I had to draw an full body on a 21x29,7cm sheet, so I had some difficulties evaluating the size of some parts like the bust :p

Also, I agree with JointOperation and love how Ashe like this outfit is. She's one of my favorite FF heroines, so kudos:) It's like Ashe has passed the torch to her successor here or something. LOL.

Can I ask you what the proportions for this are supposed to be? I'm kind of confused, since I'm not used to judging by pixels. LOL. Anyway, any help of yours on that front would be greatly appreciated:)

 

Anyway, even though I'm planning on entering this, I really hope you win, dagga. You're truly talented, and your design for her here is just lovely:D It's very Lightning-esque. And since I know how much you love the series and Lightning, I know how much thought you must have put into this. Your hard work truly shows:)

 

Wishing you the best. And thanks a bunch for everything!

Thank you so much Shanna! Oh, actually, I don't know what is the size in cm, but when you click on your image, the pixels size is written. It has to be approximately 2000 x 550 pixels (and that's awful for a traditionnal pic, cause you can't chose the size as you would in a digital one -_- ). Mine is approximately 1300 x 600.

I really appreciate your encouragements, yes, I love Lightning so much, so it was very nice to draw this!!

C'est vraiment une belle tenue en effet. Il a des chances de gagner. Mais je compte pas me laisser faire, j'y travaille à fond sur la tenue :p.
Au niveau du dos il y a un détail technique qui n'est pas correcte mais le principale c'est la tenue.

Good work my friend!

This entry looks like something that Lightning would actually wear. While still being kind of revealing, it's well-designed to be in tune with Lightning's personality. And well, it has zippers, so Nomura-san would love this concept in an instant he saw it. ;P Also, I must say that the sword looks quite interesting with this broken line. And the flower accents are nice; better than in the Midnight Mauve garb where there are these two flowers on the lower half of the dress and looks just plainly weird.

I really hope that this will make into the game.

Ow,thank you SO MUCH! Your comment really made me happy, because you have guessed all my intentions in this drawing. I wanted to create something that would be in tune with Lightning's personnality, and at the same time, look beautiful on her!

And bravo for understanding why I put zippers on her outfits ;) I don't know if you've noticed it, but the sword and the symbol on her shield are shaped like the pendant she wears in FF13^^

I personnally love the flowers on Crescent Moon too (Midnight Mauve), but I'm really glad that you prefer the way I have put them here^^

Thanks again for your comment! :)
