Etro's Guardian - Lightning by andersoncathy Etro's Guardian - Lightning by andersoncathy
Thank you, all, for the :+fav:s, comments, downloads, and views! Means a lot. :la:

Here's that "big project" I was talking about. Lightning on Etro's Throne! :D

This inspiration came from the SPOILER end of FFXIII-2 where Lightning is sitting on Etro's Throne crystallized ([link]) SPOILER OVER

I really like how this one turned out, and it took days to complete.

I don't know how I feel about the feathers yet, but they can easily be removed if I grow to hate them or of course you guys don't like them. Let me know what you think!

Update: 7-30-2012
I did take the feathers out, I didn't like them much either. xD


Thank you for the feedback! Enjoy. :happybounce:

I never liked Lightning's armor in FF XIII-2. Despite being heavily contrasting, it didn't appeal to me at all. She seems like the last person to ever wear such flamboyant outfit with feathers (that won't protect her crotch at all), just to be "eye candy".

It took me awhile to like her FFXIII-2 outfit. I think her FFXIII outfit is her best one, but I liked how the armor made her look like a goddess.
I will be honest, I would've loved to run around the FFXIII world as Lightning in this outfit (never got the chance to though since you didn't get to play as her in FFXIII-2)... :giggle:

I just cried when I saw the ending. Once I watched the Requeum of the Goddess on Youtube I my heart broke haha. I hope if theres a third, I can play as Lightning again, and here her story. This is pretty epic tho!

Aweee, I know they were intense endings.
And they better make one! They're great games and I'd love to play as Lightning again too.
But thank you! :tighthug:

To me all that DLC was epic and it broke my heart, but also gave hope; so we'll more of Light's awesomeness in a near future.
This is great too!

I can't wait 'till FFXIII-3. I heard Square Enix is going to release something on it this September. :D

(Hopefully we'll get to play as Light more in the 3rd one).

But thank you! :huggle:
