A panda is trying to make a collage for the Plans Gone Wrong Contest, only it's hard when you don't have any fingers. And glue sticks everywhere. This is, indeed, a sad panda.

The panda is only using the stock images from the assets pack provided for the contest.

I'm telling you this: if you ever worried for your shadow left behind around the corner, you should better be afraid for the shadow of the shadow, it makes walls alive and pathetic wispers hounting cats and dogs and rats you never dream enough about....good call, coffee break....

My entry for LR: Final Fantasy XIII contest- representing my own customization of Claire Farron known as Lightning, as a... creature tamer! I can see this totally in the game as Ranger, where her "weapon" becomes unleashing her tamed monsters! I'd have sooo much of fun collecting fantastic critters from that game and using them in battles. Wouldn't you? These monsters are ape-like creatures existing from the LR: FF XIII game. 

Lightning's outfit I've based on modern fashion mixing with fantasy, by adding blaze, wild personality into it.

That tribal design on background is on the back of Lightning's jacket. 


The reason why I've joined on that contest is because of Tetsuya Nomura- an artist where I hold a special place in my heart. His art has *greatly* influenced me when I was a child and somewhat introduced me into creature and fantasy art. I've discovered his old artworks of FF human designs and creatures before I started my journey through exploring other artist's works and even Internet. I was 10 years old. Mostly, thanks to Nomura I've learned taking my first steps with creating creatures in traditional media- which today, is my successful passion. I was thrilled to hear that contest is probably the only chance to get original artwork directly from him which is my dream. More likely I will not win... but at least I've tried my best :)

Also this piece is a little tribute to him- both with human design and creature art. Thank you! :aww:


Aww, my back pain :shakefist:

Weep, weep, O Walsingham!
Whose days are nights;
Blessings turn'd to blasphemies
Holy deeds to despites.
Sin is where Our Lady sat;
Heaven is turned to Hell!
Satan sits where Our Lord did sway;
Walsingham! O farewell!


(This is a 16th century poem I found in Carolly Erickson's biography "Bloody Mary". Walsingham is an English pilgrimage site that was destroyed during the Reformation. The poem reflects the feelings of the Catholic people of that time, and perhaps also what Mary thought.)

Miladies and gentlemen, I present you "Bloody Mary"! :D My 7th portrait in my series of Tudor Queens.

Born in 1516 as daughter of King Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon, Mary Tudor was raised to become Queen of England, just in case. Henry's male heirs indeed were short-lived, and his son Edward, after having ruled as Protestant king, died aged fifteen in 1553. Now it was Mary's turn and she became Queen the same year, at the age of 37. She was a devout Catholic and believed it was her mission to restore England to Catholicism. Which of course was pretty much impossible - one can't stop history once it has started. Until her death in 1558, about 280 Protestant "heretics" were condemned to death. (Source: Wikipedia)

There are several portraits of Mary dating from her time, of which the best known probably are these:
[link] - painted by Master John in 1544
[link] - painted by Antonio Moro in 1555
As you can see I chose to paint her wearing the dress from the earlier painting when she wasn't Queen yet, simply because I like it more :lol:
I'm still wondering about her eyebrows or lack thereof. Was there a fashion of plucking them out, or did Mary have some nutritional deficiency?

Like some symbolism with that painting? :) Here goes: The statuette of the Virgin Mary in the background is her name patron, obviously, and the blood red color of the tapestry also was a conscious choice.

Check out the tutorial I wrote for this image:


"She comes from the same gene pool as the Red Queen. She really likes the dark side, but she's so scared of going too far into it that she's made everything appear very light and happy." --Anne Hathaway

I painted myself as the White Queen, based on Hathaway's intriguing commentary and a favorite photo of myself. The title is a double entendre. It refers to the warped perspective used in the painting itself, and the perspective that a person sees and is seen through.

I was going to scrap this painting because it was truly dreadful in the beginning stages. I couldn't get the composition or colors to work out properly, but I persevered. Now it's become my favorite and best painting to date. I'll post the steps of the painting in a little bit.

Critique welcome, but I won't be able to make corrections since this is a contest entry.

Time: 23+ hours
Tools:
- 100% digitally painted in Photoshop CS3
