Contest entry - Etro by eikomakimachi Contest entry - Etro by eikomakimachi
My first idea for this contest was an outfit based on Etro, one of the goddesses from Final Fantasy XIII mythology. I did this black dress with feathers based on one official artwork of a mural showing Etro spilling her blood, which was used to create humans in Fabula Nova Crystallis' mythology, hence the feather getting a red tint at the end. It also seems to be common to relate Etro to wings or feathers so I gave Lightning a new gunblade designed after this concept.

Etro is also the Goddess of Death, so I wanted to add a bit of black and white to it, two colors usually associated to death by many cultures.

I also wanted to make some reference to Lightning's original design for the first Final Fantasy XIII game and her current main outfit for Lightning Returns, hence her coat.

Ficou ÓTIMA. Realmente isso é o que se espera de uma pessoa que realmente gosta de FF: fazer um design que se encaixa na série!
Estou na torcida! :D

Obrigada! Eu realmente tentei me manter ao máximo dentro do conceito do jogo e dos designs do Nomura (afinal todos sabem que a tendência é eu sair desenhando tudo igual ao Tactics e ao FFXIV XD)

One other great thing about this contest is that it's drawing so many good artists out of the woodwork.  So much talent.
