OBVIOUSLY, not the most skilled person in the world [I'm seventeen. :T] but eh, it was good practice, and perhaps this time I have a fair chance at a contest. I decided not to Use the templates from the asset pack, as this seems to be what most people have done. I thought this contest was open to concept, and as I have never read the books, I created a random design from within my brain. it's taken me a total of 15 hours to complete, mainly because it was very experimental [my coloring SUCKS] and I put very very careful work into it. I took ONE BREAK doing this. ONE. ugh. It turned out alright I suppose, I hope it's at least semi-finalist worthy. Enjoy Lena. Light version.
The dress is supposed to be white really, so I used cream to shade as apposed to my usual blue because I wanted it to look brighter, happier. when it comes to coloring, I understand the power and enforcement of darks, but I wanted this to be light, however it might be a bit too faint.. :T not sure. Her one arm is a bit stressed for the sake of the exaggerated pose. I didn't paint her feet because rather than a full dynamic person, I wanted her to fade into the light she has become. The dress not being "complete" for lack of a better word is because I had "POSTER" stuck in my head all day, I kept in mind this could be a poster, dvd cover, book illustration, banner, or something [even if my style is really different]. Just pointing out the things I kept in mind while painting this. Those vapors of magic were just for effect, I can remove them.
Everyone has a dark side, but that doesn't mean that dark isn't overcome, Lena. c:
