FFXIII :: Paradigm ... Shift? by x-Uruwashiki-Hito FFXIII :: Paradigm ... Shift? by x-Uruwashiki-Hito
EDIT:WOW ain't hindsight 20/20.
Hope doesn't look any older lololololsob.

Hnnnngh older Hope. /wipes drool.

I'm studying. See? Look at all the work I've gotten done.

. . .
Psshaw. It's just my Animation exam tomorrow. All you have to know is how to make a thaumatrope and who Walt Disney was. Let's be real here.

So I doodled this last night, and my good pen is currently missing in action. I tried to clean up the pencil a bit more with both an eraser and the computer, but well, if you've seen my sketchbook, this is actually rather clean in comparison. OTL

On to what you'll actually maybe care about:

I'm in the middle of a fanfiction of mine; an AU where Hope is twenty-one and Lightning is fourteen. I kept staring at the empty document that is the 8th chapter and thought of this. (Really, I just wanted to try a pseudo-compromising position.) If you want to read it, it's called 'Those Emotions Could Not Become Lies' on (I'm KeyLimeChibi on there.) I can link it to those who're too lazy to find it. /~*shameless advertising*~

I admit, I'm totally guilty of 'borrowing' Lightning's Dissidia Duodecim outfit. (Just turned the pants into shorts a-hurr hurr.) I dunno 'bout you guys, but I kind of thought it looked like something Lightning would wear way back when she was young and foolish and some delinquent teenager. (AKA a past that never happened.) Not to say that she doesn't look cool in it, but I think it'd suit a younger/less mature Lightning.

(And what's this, an older Hope without his trademark ascot?!)

Anyways, enjoy~
(If HopuRai in its regular form makes Lightning a puma. . . does that mean I've made Hope a lolicon?
Yeah okay I'm good with that. )

Photoshop CS5 (Still no tablet sob.)
2H/mechanical pencil
A twelve pack. (Of doughnuts, silly.)

Awesome! First time I saw this I thought they were playing "Hot Spot" -that game where you're on a mat and you gotta cover all the colourful circles with your hands, feet, etc. Guess the name is appropriate for the game. XD

actually, that's Aya Brea's 3rd Birthday outfit. I really only point this out because you need a code to get it and you get the code from the 3rd Birthday (which looks pretty cool), but yeah it's a bonus for buying the game. Just so you aren't disappointed when you don't automatically have it.

Ahh really? Thanks for the info!

Sucks that you have to buy it though, but oh well xD

Yeah, that does bite, but I'm only 89% certain. After all, the game has yet to come out in the States. My sources just said that it was part of the promotional stuff with the 3rd Birthday.
