Knowing Lightning, I don't think a wound like that one she got would kill her.

I think this is how I picture my imaginary special operations forces she and Cloud Strife led (with the other members being the FFVII party, the FFXIII party, the FFXIII-2 duo, and Yeul) during one of their operations. More info of my forces with them as leaders here.

I picture this scenario when I see that art of yours:
During one operation, Lightning got shot by an enemy shooter which Noel took down.

Once Cloud got the report of Lightning got shot, he immediately rushes to her sickbay room. He pleads to her to never leave him and their group because they are both the "founding parents" of the group. He stood by her side until the time she got healed.

End of story...

Gorgeous:love: Hey, can u please explain to me how u made the blood, dust and all that? I really need help:please:
andersoncathy Featured By Owner May 2, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
Oh my, blood takes so much work.
Most of the time I use stock images. This user - :iconblood--stock: has a lot of good blood stocks. Basically just set it to multiply or overlay. Which ever one looks better in the image. Then I just touch it up with a small brush. A little bit of blending makes brushed blood more realistic. Just make sure you have various different colors in your blood to add to the realism (if that makes sense).
As for the dust, I just do that right in Photoshop. Go to filters > render > clouds. Then set to screen and just erase the parts you don't want.
Hope that helps! It's all about trial and error. :meow:
