My entry for the contest! I wanted to try and design an outfit/look that incorporated some visual kei ish elements while still keeping some of the elements of her outfits from the games. I also used her crystarium as inspiration for the overall colours. I'm really excited because this is my first time entering a contest like this, and while I've seen some really amazing entries already which have reminded me of how much of a novice I still am at digital art as well composition and design, I've had a lot of fun and learned some valuable things. (Mostly lessons in perseverance... like save often... and check which layer you're on...)
I have another idea for an armor concept, so we'll see if I can by some miracle pull that off by the deadline.
