I didn't have much time to work on this as my first entry piece, so I used a slightly different coloring style. I also decided to concentrate on composition instead. This one was created entirely Photoshop. I am soooo tired... someone give me a cookie.
This is the cover of an early Valentine's gift for my dear We met online and became friends. A few months later we met for the first time at A-kon. He went as Inuyasha, and I was Kagome. Ever since we've only gotten closer and closer. We've never missed that con, either. We've been the same characters each time (on at least one day). So...yeah.
This isn't really fanart...lol, they're not as pretty as usual, you see? It's Jude and I in costume, lol.
The inside of the card shall remain secret, cuz it's full of private sentemental stuff that I'm not even going to let Jude read until Valentine's day.
It takes one memory, One tiny piece of hope, One single act of love, To cut through the darkness.
This is a paper-cut piece. I used an exact-o blade and just... got into in. I was really excited to play with the negative and positive space as a second layer to the concept of the contest. I know this was sent in close to the deadline! But, I'm really glad I tried anyway. <3
I wish I had more time to work on this. Of course I have to find out about the contest 3 days before the deadline.
I wanted to paint a picture of Barnabas as a vampire (those fingers!) in the present day but trying to evoke a feeling of a traditional portrait. From the trailer it seemed like he was not afraid to let the family know that he was a vampire and I tried to keep some of that feeling in, like he was proud of who he was.
Might update this if I have time tomorrow before the deadline.
Imagination gives you wings, knowledge - air to soar through.
I think everyone agrees that knowledgeable person who lacks inspiration may find it very hard to succeed, and imagination alone without experience and knowledge leads to empty hopes and wasted time.
Let imagination and knowledge both always be with you and let you achieve your dreams!

[ANOTHER DAY IN IMAGINATION ISLAND] AWMAIGAWHGD I CAN FINALLY SLEEP!!!!!
Anyway this piece punched me in the face, threw me into a fiery santa chimney and repeatedly forced me to commit extended-rope bungee jumping off a rocky shore... that I seriously need background practice @_@ I am sorry past self for being lazy! Then again I have colors to practice and 3D effects to worry... OTL *SIIIIIIIIIIIGH*
So to cover up my skill level I made sure it had the air and atmosphere it had over there. The character pose was heavily inspired by *humon's experience in her journal. No matter what differences, we should all at least be able to greet each other without discrimination! Years back, the person I was dating at that time was awed by me saying hello to a stranger that walked by and commented "she's not even that cute!" Dude, am I secretly an alien from outer space without me knowing because I didn't know that there was such rule stating you can only greet someone who you're attracted to! I was just trying to be polite! Besides greeting someone is just manners in society; not a sign of potential flirting. Why am I randing on a contest entry?! This world is filled with mysteries...
