Spirit Lightning by CatCouch Spirit Lightning by CatCouch

So, for my second entry I decided to do an illustration. Here Lightning can capture and control spirits. She stores them in a lantern and then uses them to power her sword. Little known fact: spirits are excellent for bludgeoning things!

My first entry: Pisces Lightning: Final Fantasy by CatCouch

Lightning Square Enix

oooo this is awesome! Such an interesting angle. I like skinny canvas choices like these. It would make a killer banner : )

That is though perspective to work with. I think the composition could use some work, and also the perspective on the legs.

Any suggestions for the composition? The contest required the rather odd dimensions I used (2000x550) but since it's over I can rework it however I want.

Quite honestly, I have no idea LOL. It's the sides that are bothering me. I know her foot seems out of proportion. I don't know if that affects my view of the composition. But I give you props for taking on such a hard challenge. You did very well!

The sides?

With the foot, do you think it's the size, angle, both?

Thanks for the feedback!

unusual perspective you picked here. I think it works great with a panoramic pict like this :>

Thank you! The perspective was rather different from what I've done before but it was pretty fun to try out.

This is a nice view. It's too bad I can't see any further up, if you know what I mean. Horny!

ooh, I didn't even realize that was what I was doing. I've been wanting to try my hand at fish-eye, birds-eye et cetera for a while, but that stuff is hard so I never get around to it. I need to try it intentionally! Thanks~

That is one crazy point of view. good work overall.
I think the design could of been brought out even more though.

Yeah, the sword ended up covering her chest, I thought about making in translucent so I could detail out some of her clothes and arm but it just didn't work. Oh well, at least I have a design entry too so I gave it a shot from both design and illustration.

Thanks! The perspective was fairly hard, I need to practice these things more, but the aspect ratio made for a rather easy paint I was a able to do fairly quick.

Foreshortening and the like is pretty hellish and I'm honestly not sure how this piece even came out acceptable. It's a pleasant surprise, I'll have to try it more often!
