Julesta! by artmunnn Julesta! by artmunnn
I'M SWEATING BLOOD RIGHT NOW (will write a nice description after i get this in the entry list T_T)

*edit
Julesta belongs to Voleno (=0= )7
*breathes deeply* Okay, wow, this contest was a challenge! I really really hope it shows the effort T__T (Voleno, THANK YOU for hosting this contest *says hi to Voleno sitting in a fake theater*) because I really wanted to show that I was taking this contest seriously even if I entered so late. I sat and was like okay. you entered, so now you must think of a special way to portrait the character and get the best quality because you don't want to look like you're just reaching for the ankles of this.

I chose Julesta thinking I wanted to work with water (never had drawn water like this full color >->) and I loved that she was blue =3= aand also, I always stay with safe poses=H=. so, a challenge
One of my worries was the 'sexy' thing voleno mentioned in the character's journal. I chose this pose and the last thing I'd want was for people to think I was trying to appeal just by a sexy fact. I mean you can see some thigh and the chest is there but her design is not a flat chest girl nor a DDcup so let's hope I got a nice decent size.

The outfit. Julesta seemed to me like a kind of knight-but-wild girl, because the jewel details made her fancy but the rest of her clothing is more amazonic-like, bare foot and  all. So I decided to bring out some more of that knight side without losing the other details completely. Gave her an ice pin and choker, pulled up the clothing over her dress, and because those already made her a bit formal I didn't include the transparent fabric on her leg,seeing her legs and then the bare feet, you know there's some wildness in her.

I loved the armor piece in the 3d model and tried to recreate it like side plates ..that was the idea at least ;n;

The description said she uses water and ice and I felt that turning her sword into and ice blade would show more clearly that she controls the ice as well as the water( YEAH I KNOW ICE IS WATER =X=). The daggers are supposed to be out of ice too--

oh, the look she's giving on the concept art is kinda badass so I tried to imitate that too x)

And overall it's been a WHILE since I've done something like this illustration. It actually took me out of my art block because I never get stuff like this done in so little time. It's.. it's like a new record! (that's why I'm writing this bible, sorry) again, thank you for this contest!

TL;DR  I found this contest, and didn't sleep because of it and I finished something this year, FINALLY *auto back pat* ;-;9

Ooo, this is so beautiful, honestly. I really love the dynamic pose, and your coloring technique is really something that's so nice! Some of the shapes, for example, the crystal daggers, are quite simple, but it fits in with the overall piece and your style really well. :D  It really makes it stand out and yeah, the colors you chose for them are very, very eye-catching. 

Overall, very lovely work, you're doing great, I can't wait to see more, and I voted for you in the popular vote!~

Thanks again for entering the VolenoContest! I'm currently responding to each entry, so forgive me if the analysis is a bit shallow on this first go around. 

I love your interpretation of her outfit! While the changes are subtle, the definitely serve to help this one stand out in a unique way. You definitely put a lot of thought into it, especially for having less time overall than some others. The overall quality of the work is definitely excellent, as well. :3

If you'd be interested in hearing a more detailed opinion of the piece, just let me know and we can talk about it at length. So again, you have my gratitude for participating and I hope to see you in future contests as well!

Also, in case you haven't read yet, (and I know I've put it just about everywhere by now...) there will be a "popular vote" prize of $50 awarded to one more entry through a series of polls. Everyone is entered automatically, but if you'd rather yours wasn't, let me know and I can take it out of the running. Thank you!
