As the theme of LR-FFXIII is time, I thought to portray something...well... time related
Here's my (probably) last contest entry. I honestly don't think I can do better than this piece in such a short time. It might not look like it, but this artwork required 5 different renders with 5 different 3D scenes, selected and merged in postwork. Total hours of work spent on this piece (scene setting+rendering+post editing): ~56 hours.
Lightning from the Final Fantasy XIII series, recreated in DAZ Studio with V4, rendered with Lux via Reality plugin. Postwork made with Photoshop and graphic tablet.
Almost everything in this scene, including the background, has been made in 3D within DAZ Studio.
Please bear in mind this character model has been morphed from scratch using DAZ Studio's V4 as base, I never use character models made/created by others, nor materials coming from other games, this is my own work.
Hope you like it, and good luck for me ^^ I really hope Mr. Tetsuya gets to see this...
I really wish I knew how to do 3d stuff like this. I just don't know where to learn at all lol.
I just ADORE this one!! it really is the best you´ve drawn! hope you win!!
Final Fantasy ain't known for its digital paintings.
CGI? You bet!
Top 50; U'll be in it!
I don't think so... but thanks
I don't think mine would squeeze through.
Don't talk like that! I just saw your pieces and I really like them! They kinda differ from all other entries, you got an unique style. I like it!
The time and attention to detail you put into this even down to the teeth on the gears is amazing! Really great!
pretty, beautiful, so innocent
Wonderful piece. Put together very well. The character is marvelous!
Thank you so much! Morphing her has been quite the hellish work ^^
Cool, I wanted to enter but didn't know if kit-bashing outfits to get a rough concept was allowed considering I didn't make the clothing. Nice work!
Thank you! You still have some time if you want to give a try
That is really amazing work considering it's a morph you made from scratch. It would take me 56 hours just to get a custom morph that I like for myself, let alone the posing and rendering.
Well it took me days of work to morph the character as well, but I already had it done when I started working on this, therefore the character morphing time isn't included. Can't really say how much it took me, but I worked on it couple of hours a day for more than a week.
I love the choices of outfits you use, especially on this one
But 56 hours? Wow! It's just so real and gorgeous, personally I actually find this one my favorite really and good luck in the contest too, I'm really hoping you win you deserve it after all that hard work here
Awe, you're such a kind person. Thank you so much for all the support you have given me
So much love for Lightning here. ^__^
56 hours? Sounds like you worked so hard in been 2 days! I love the scene where she sit in the thorn on the left side from the start. And clothes reminded me of angel that I've seen the poser or daz cover box or it could be for a warrior? Nice details you worked so hard on stuff with awesome effects. Excellent job! <3
I am really happy you like it dear thank you for your very kind feedback
Wow, this is amazing, it's actually look like a Final Fantasy XIII cinematic graphics! beautiful!
56 hours!!!. Dam lol. All your entries are good, pretty sure you'll get one.
