Lena, Embracing Shadow - Beautiful Creatures by connvince Lena, Embracing Shadow - Beautiful Creatures by connvince
I loved the idea of this contest and needed a fun project to take my mind off of work projects. I've also been terrible about updating my DA content, so it's about time!

It's a little risque, but hey, she's gone dark caster here! What good's the dark side if you can't wear less clothing? :-) I can alter if needed.

Hope you enjoy!

Awesome! It's kind of Tim Burton-esque :)

Thanks so much! And it's more a portrait of her as a character abstracted from the story. I liked how the trailer showed the dark magic seeping out, so I ran with that. The darkness runs through her entirety, from her head to her feet, but she also has control over it; with one hand she brings it out and with the other she holds it at bay. That's what I was going for at least. :-)

I think its out of place for an established professional to enter this contest. i don't want to be mean or rude but I don't think its fair and wanted to let you know.

No offense taken. To be fair, I've had no training, I'm brand new to the art world, and I'm desperate for any chance to get my work out. The money would go a long way to keeping my three little girls fed. (All of this ignores how awesome the basis for the contest is!) However, I do see your point, and thanks for letting me know! I hope you have an entry and best of luck to you.

I don't think it's out of place or rude for you to enter this contest, professional or otherwise.
Being a professional doesn't make one an expert at all arts, or in the type of art a given contest demands and doesn't even mean one is established and doesn't need exposure, as you pointed out.
Frankly, I've been underwhelmed by the entries thus far. I hope you win in your category and I'm glad I'm submitting to the other category. ;)
