FF13: In Requiem by cartoongirl7 FF13: In Requiem by cartoongirl7
Materials: Copic and Steadtler pigment liners, Copic Sketch markers, white acrylic ink.
Time: 22 hours.

PRINT WILL BE AVAILABLE AT ANIME EXPO '09.

From the moment I saw the Final Fantasy XIII trailers over a year ago, I've been counting down to its US release...which definitely won't be any time soon OTL;; Not to mention I don't have a console to play it on. Even with the price drop, PS3's are still too expensive. But if there is a will, there is a way! *sells liver*

For those who haven't seen the trailers, you've got to watch it (for the hot girl, hot guy, big swords, and the massive amount of of hack and slash): [link] and [link]

I'm a big Square junkie so I've been itching to draw Lightning (girl) and Noctis (guy) for awhile, but just never got around to it. I figured that since I've never really drawn swords, I'd give it a whirl here... /headdesk.

Leave it to SE to design the most ungodly complicated weapon designs ever. There are about 3-4 picture references total on their swords since the game hasn't been released yet, so it was hell trying to figure out the orientation of all the teensy mechanical parts orz;;

Other than that, the cracks on the wall were reaaaally fun to do. And no that's not a giant gaping black hole in the wall; it's his cape.

As always your drawing/painting skills leaves me speechless. I think that everytime you show us a new artwork, you don't only prove us that you are talented, but also has improved yourself!

The characters pose are awesome, and I like that Lighting is on the front of Noctis because it can show that women can protect herselves or even can protect men too ^^-, her expresion is strong and femenine. The ribbon on her sword also helps a lot :)

As for Noctis, what can I say, those red eyes caugh my eye ;P, you painted them so strong that they are like the spotlight on his face ^^. His well detailed sword show us how many dedication you put into this artwork -Belive me, you REALLY have patience dear! ;P- Awesomeness is all I can say! :D

Please keep the good work and don't loose this talent ^^

As always your technique is beautiful. The colors are very smooth with no notice able streaks (I think there are some in the background?). I love that you places all the intense colors on the right side, with the placement of the girl, and everything else is on the gray side. The only problem with that is that at first the man sort of fades into the background. At first glance my attention was solely on the girl.

The detail on the weapons is exquisite, You paid so much attention it's beautiful. The transparency in the ribbon on the girls blade is wonderful. Just enough to give the hint of opacity, but still substantial.

This style reminds of the art from the Tales series, not quite sure why lol. Excellent work though, and I'm impressed its entirely non-digital (I think Noctis' shirt kind of give that way XD).

I LOVE the black comic marker.
It's absolutely wonderful cause unlike other black markers, you can't see the marker lines in the pic if you do it right;
so it look pitch black and perfect, *sigh* it's wonderful (#^^#)
