This here is my entry for FFXIII.net Forum's Monthly Art Contest. Their theme this month is unannounced FF summons for FFXIII. You can either draw already existing summons or create your own as I did.
Here, I used the mythological creature Qilin/Kirin. Since this isn't Fanart, I've placed the submission under Fantasy, durf.
Open Canvas for the sketch and painting. About a good 3 hours I'd say. Photoshop for colour adjustments and final touchups.
My main reason for choosing the Qilin? Monster Hunter, fuck yeah. The Kirin in that game is awesome ;-;
Initial sketch can be seen here: [link]
