I'm developing a game and have some concerns about the originality of the artwork that a collaborator has shown me. A friend of mine tells me that this sprite looks familiar to him but he can't quite place it.

enter image description here

Is this a (possibly recolored or otherwise modified) sprite from an existing game?

Update: It is stolen art. The original has been found here thanks to Martin Sojka.

That's pretty obviously Lightning, from Final Fantasy 13. They've made a sprite version, so not completely the same, but not at all original.

For comparison:

A google search for "final fantasy lightning sprite" has revealed that the art is indeed stolen. Thank you for the fast response. – evenex_code Feb 6 '14 at 23:12
@evenex_code: You should probably link to the original instead. – Martin Sojka Feb 6 '14 at 23:29
