LIGHTNING by J-Estacado LIGHTNING by J-Estacado
It's VERY hard to submit something without probably being no satisfied with the eventual this will meet, after my last piece with Elektra, but HEH, I have to submit other pieces one day or another I guess :lol:

I Loved the "Barbie" side in the visual of the character; especially her hair color; I know it's not THAT pink with the "original" one, but I played with that !

My original model for the face & attitude was :iconnicotinedesire: all that remains is from myself :)
As usual when I use a photoreference, I generally just keep the face. And I don't really know why, but I thought her face would match a good Lightning.

It was supposed to be with me, in my portfolio for the last paris Manga convention,along with
and
but I hadn't the time to finish the pic, so...

ONE last note about the fact the 3 times I drew her was in sexy/sexual content : I didn't had a brainstorming about that; I mean I know that I tend to naturaly reapropriate a character in a total opposition from what he/she used to be; and as Lightning is a boring military one... you do the maths ;)

Oui :)
c'est pour ça que je fais réferance à barbie dans ma description, à cause du coté plus girly que je lui ait donné, en saturant un peu plus cetaines valeures, comme le rose justement; j'ai trouvé que ça donnait quelque chose d'assez chouette, sur les couleurs :)

Uhhh... I actually think "Barbie" was kinda exactlythe opposite of whatshe was about... hair colour notwithstanding.
