Aeternitas by sHoNi89 Aeternitas by sHoNi89
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.

Final Fantasy ain't known for its digital paintings.

CGI? You bet!

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!

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.

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
