Lightning in Fairy Tail by empire539
Lightning in Fairy Tail
With LightningStrike83's arrival in Earth Land, Fairy Tail decides to celebrate. Erza finally gets to have a perfect picnic on this peaceful day. Well, almost peaceful.

Trivia time!

1. I tried to get most people's favorite foods in somehow, if that information was known. However, Happy won't be happy if he's looking in the wrong place! Where should he be looking?

2. Who's the guy next to Mavis? (Easy one for manga readers)

3. Guess where Wendy's outfit is from!


A/N: WHEW, FINALLY DONE. This is probably by far the most complex and detailed piece I've ever done for a contest. I usually stick to maybe one or two characters at most, but this one has quite a few more. The poses were super difficult to draw, so it was a nice little test to try and apply what I'd been practicing. But omg, don't even get me started on hands and feet (or their proportions/perspective). And I don't think I'll be drawing grass anytime soon.

I ended up mixing styles again (orz), when I was shading clothes I was like lalala ihavenoideawatimdoing. Gotta work on proportions too when it's from a weird angle. But anyway, this was a really fun thing to work on, and I enjoyed it.

Tools: Paint Tool SAI, Photoshop, tablet
Time: WAY TOO LONG... I seriously need to get faster... According to my logbook, total time spent on this entry was 80 hours, 34 minutes across 20 days, including conceptual planning time. Yikes! Now if only I could spend that much time studying...

Critiques are welcome!
Lightning Strikes on a Dark Knight by empire539
Lightning Strikes on a Dark Knight
DC and Marvel comics don't exist on Earth Land, so LightningStrike83 decides to show Lucy what her world is missing by taking the streets by storm as the Dark Knight! Lucy joins in on the fun as Catwoman, putting her own spin on the costume.

Entry for the Bonus category to LightningStrike83's LIGHTNING IN FAIRY TAIL LAND CONTEST!!!
Results are here (this got first place in the Bonus category!)

Lightning as Batman
Lucy Heartfilia (Fairy Tail) as Catwoman

A/N: I originally wanted to draw something more complex, but with the contest deadline approaching (and the fact that I have a midterm tomorrow but haven't started studying for it at all), I had to go for something simpler. I'm glad it turned out okay though, since it was basically my first time ever drawing chibis and they didn't end up looking like horribly mutated dwarves (at least, I hope...).

I also had an idea of doing a Green Arrow/Black Canary thing, but I couldn't get the poses right >_<

Also, sorry to Lightning for not making his Batman more visually distinctive. There's only so much you can do while wearing a Batmask, amirite?

Tools: PaintTool SAI, tablet
Time: 11 hours, 34 min / 4 days
