FFXIII: Angelic Dream by lyzeravern FFXIII: Angelic Dream by lyzeravern
THE ARTWORK IS FINALLY DONE!!! CLICK [link] TO VIEW :D

[Edit] - Updated with the latest rendition of Lightning from the completed artwork.




Click [link] for WIP Part 1

It's been almost 2 months plus that I didn't submit the update of my artwork since [link]

Usually I would took about 1 month to complete one artwork but this one I must say it's exceptional different. The reason I still haven't complete it yet:

1. Lightning costume was soooooo complicated. It looked simple at first. But when you plan to go into a very deep detail like doing treads, textures, buttons, beltss etc... you will be going crazy for sure.

2. Her hair has been consumed most of my time. It's been too many times of redo until I got it right. Her face also has been reedit many time to reach my satisfaction level. For me, no matter what her face must be the attraction point of all =P

3. I never attend any art school or study through books on the law of lighting, shading, positioning etc (well... lazy). So I need to search lots and lots of reference including myself looking into mirror. (Yeah, that even difficult I don't have any real model to be my reference. Who would like to be a volunteer? LOL =P)

4. My busy work life and my procrastinate attitude... (erm, I don't think I need to elaborate this, right? :D)

5. Etc. (haha lazy to think already)

Okay, for now Lightning is about 70% complete and still need to do some touch-up on certain part. And also not to mention, the background! That part may take even some time to finish... so expect this artwork to be fully complete by next month?

Anyway, now I brought to you the next Dream ID - a sneak preview for my upcoming artwork (Oh yeah, the finish one will be in color version). Enjoy! :D

[Update - 22 August 209]

Update with the new look of Lightning from the finalized artwork.

Material Used:
Adobe Photoshop CS3
Wacom Graphire 4

Reference:
- Saaya Irie - Japanese Bikini Model (Yeah, the same model I did for Haruhi Suzumiya).
- Several screenshots and wallpapers released by Square Enix, game magazines etc

Character Design: Tetsuya Nomura SQUARE ENIX CO. LTD

Honestly, she looks a lot more like Serah than Lightning; which is, of course, conceivable considering they're sisters.
Still, great devID; I love seeing a sort of "Gruzified Grey-scale" effect in IDs, I find it quite appealing.

:iconlyzeravern:
lyzeravern Featured By Owner May 17, 2010
Hehe, perhaps this picture showed her soft side rather than her normal aggressive look, that is why she appear more like Serah? Yeah, this gray-scale effect was inspired from one of :dev artgerm: DeviantID and the effect is somehow much better looking than the normal black & white gray-scale. :D

It look really nice. But there is something wrong with her left shoulder, I think it need to be higherr.. But that how i feel from this pic, really need to see the full pic...

Keep up the good work!

lyzeravern Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2009
LOL, you know what? Actually I did have problem of cropping this picture from the full view since each time when I cropped, her posture will be seem affected.

By the way, the left is it her left or our left? I supposed you meant is the one putting down, with the arm band? I think you may be right, I would need to put her shoulder a little bit higher. Anyway thanks for pointing it out. :D

I refer to the right side of the image. The raised hand.
Reply
:iconlyzeravern:
lyzeravern Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2009
Oh, that part is correct... In fact, I draw her entire body first with the exact measurement with the real life model before I put in the "clothes". I think because of the inner sweater collar, that's why it looked as if the shoulder looks lower. :D

Also she Much more bustier too [thats a good thing] but i am happy Mr.Nomura didnt make her busty, there just too many Games these days where all the Ladies are really busty, plus since she is a female Cloud, a busty look just wouldn't look good on her, Still Your Art is Really Amazing, hope to see more.
Reply
:iconlyzeravern:
lyzeravern Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2009
I'm agree with you. Sometimes I don't see the relevance for the ladies to have big bust in game. However, for this case, I will make it exceptional! My aim for this artwork is to make her sexier than the game version. LOL :D
Reply
:iconnaughtyboy83:
NaughtyBoy83 Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2009
Yes I have to say she is sexier then the Game Version, also The Female Sephy [BlondeLady], she is quite the opposite of Lighting, And if you look carefully she does look alot like Sephy.

:iconlyzeravern:
lyzeravern Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2009
LOL, that's my intention to make her sexier than the game version. I heard about that blond lady and most people love to call her female Sephiroth. I think it would be great if her role also similar to Sephy :D

:iconnaughtyboy83:

Me too, i cant wait till she gets all evil, she will look really cool with that evil Sephy look.
