Watercolour and white gel pen. Like many people I grew up on RPGs like Final Fantasy. I haven't drawn/painted anything for a while so I thought this would be a great motivation! This design is inspired by cosmonauts and a lightning goddess concept. The weapon is lightning, of course, generated through the two bars she's holding, and currently (unintentional pun?) taking the form of a hammer/battleaxe type weapon.
It was hard coming up with a pose that would fit in the format required, be dynamic, and still show a significant portion of the design, but it was a great challenge! (It's kind of funny that the last big Final Fantasy/contest image I did years and years ago was also thunder and lightning themed ... )
Good luck to everyone who enters! ^^
I also have a silly gag entry! Here it is xDfav.me/d7729ya
