Here finally my submission finished:
In general this kind of illustration take me around 2 weeks, but this time for the short deadline I had to make it quickly and only in 4 days, so the result isn't perfect at 100% . Unluckily I suffer of a strong nervous breakdown and in this time with the big amount of work it's are going worse, so I can't push myself a lot and I tried to make the best in my limits.
Here some notes about this pic:
The pic here is 600X800, anyway, Oda if you need of it bigger or the PSD file, plz let me know that.
She is without a name, anyway I thought to call her Persephone(she was the wife of Hades the God of the Greek Underworld), since she is the Niff Kafra. Call her Hel as the Niff Norse Goddess was a bit common and in Niff there is already Hel NPC(Sign Quest), so even if Persephone was a name from Greek Mythology as then Thanatos I think that could be fine for her.
About she style, she is a spectral version of Defolty(Pavienne), so I took inspiration from her. Anyway I made some modifications like the gloves, that are without fingers, and some other little particular(Make-up and little bats), then I broke the bottom of her dresses. In the color part I will modify also the color of her hair and eyes.
About the other girl, she is the summon of Rez, if this card give the possibility to use that skill, was fine use the summon in it.
Surely you will note that the summon is a bit bigger than the kafra, well when you use rez also in game the summon is a bit bigger than the players.
About Lude, my husband said that the Kafra was a bit too Scary(I worked for years as novelist and illustrator for horror story so some time I'm influenced by that style when I make pics)so to make the pic more relaxed and cute, I put that little ghost.
Well now that finally the card is finished, I will be able to sleep this night...cos my look is becoming as that of the Niff Kafra.
P.S. This pic is also from my husband Kiehl, he helped me with his support and giving me advice about the realization of this illustration.
Since the contest has been extended, I made this quick pic of Roxie Card.
I know that it isn't as the author thought the card( with the little zombie), and maybe it contain a lot of blood...but I love splatter scenes, so if I have to think to Roxie that fight against a zombie, this is my idea.
Having so much blood, as I said in the other thread, I could make a SD Roxie Face on the zombie's neck, with the sentence "Censure".
Anyway being busy I could make until now just this not good picture, honestly I'm not satisfied on it, cos it isn't really accurate and I didn't have time also to make the SD Roxie Face, so ODA, if the pic is too much splatter, plz tell me, and tomorrow I will try to find a bit of time to make the censored version.
About my sign, I preferred put it inside the pic and not in a side cos if you will use this image, it could be cut, has happened in many cards. Maybe the angel kitty isn't in tone with the subject, but that is my logo.^^;;; Sorry.
As last thing, I would like to apologize to the card author if I ruined his Roxie image so cute with the little zombie, in this warrior Roxie that seem to came out from an anime like High School of the Dead.^^;;;
