Contest -- Lightning Returns by LalaLiliLalaLii Contest -- Lightning Returns by LalaLiliLalaLii
I don't even know if I stand a chance against tons of awesome artists out there in this contest, but...for once, I just wanted to try joining an official dA contest, because I never did before. Some of the entries I saw so far were breathtaking, but then again, dA will pick 50 (instead of 3) entries that are deemed the best. I don't think I'm being pessimistic if I say that it's not likely for me to win the grand prize. But would it be too much to wish that I'd be included in the 50 selected entries?

Those prizes look awesome too...ah dammit...if only my skill is better than it is now.

Anyway...

Lightning (c) Tetsuya Nomura, FF VII
Final Fantasy (c) Square Enix

Haha yeah, I took a look at few entries and I was like 'nope, no hope for me' XD but yeah, just like you, I've never taken part of any official contests before so it was fun to finally do that! I almost chickened out but as the deadline drew closer I suddenly found the resolve to do it haha~ I didn't really do it in hope to win, just to be part of the community I guess~

Yes...well, I did try to put as much effort as I can into this, making this my best work so far. But I still am not sure if I stand a chance against the others. Anyway, thanks a lot for your compliment. The hardest part was indeed drawing (and coloring) the sword, so, yeah, glad to know someone appreciate it!
