Atlantis Lights by FrostAlexis Atlantis Lights by FrostAlexis
Edit: Oh my, first place??????? Wow, a big thank you to the people who donated prize and points for this contest, and Wesley-Souza for hosting. It was EPIC! Also a huge shout out to my amazing coaches (and totally amazing artists) Mr-Ripley and JoeDiamondD (Sorry coach Joe, I misread the rules and I didn't know we were a team. :( I super regret not having the chance to learn from you, and I sincerely hope there will be another time in the future. Your art just blows my mind!)
And last but not least, thank you Pendragon-Arts for encouraging me just when I was ready to quit on this artwork. I might not have finished if not for you! Thank you and BIG HUGS!!!

Bullet; Blue This is my entry for wesley-souza.deviantart.com/jo… held by :iconthe-imaginarium:
Bullet; Orange My coach was :iconmr-ripley: (so cooooooll

Bullet; Blue So, my concept is that this is the ruins of Atlantis, and on really dark nights the mermaids use jellyfish to light their lamps via a strange and wonderful magic. Just wonderful...
Mr. Ripley advised that I use contrast colors for the lights, and make the mermaid more the center of attention in the artwork. He also suggested more buildings in the bg and more jellyfish and to create a more open scene of it. And he showed me excellent examples of how to do it and what he meant. Any mistakes I made in this artwork do not reflect upon his coachman ship. It's not his fault I'm a bad student, lol


Bullet; Orange Whew! Well, that's finally done. I know I haven't posted in over a month, but that's how long this took me. Ugh, still not exactly the way I wanted it, but I'm still pleased with the way it turned out. It's such a big project, I wish I had a whole year to spend working on it. There's so much I want to show with this concept. Maybe I'll even remake it again sometime... :la:
Seriously, the document had so many layers that my photoshop was performing like a snail. I couldn't have continued if I wanted to, XD




Bullet; Blue Thank you so much :iconmr-ripley: for helping me in this contest with your tips and suggestions. And thank you for seeing the potential in my original work. I would never have thought of remaking it by myself. I'm sorry we didn't have more time to work together, but it was super awesome learning what I did. And I had a ton of fun. THANK YOU!!! :huggle:

Bullet; Orange Original version is here: sta.sh/01r9rsiqop16 it was one of my first deviations, made in June 2015 on an ipad, lol 
I had deleted it from DA because I was so embarrassed, :blush: Don't look, it's so horrible!!!!!! lol

Atlantis Lights by FrostAlexis is a creative scene with magical, vibrant colors and light, which is why many deviants wanted to see this piece featured. ( Suggested by Black-B-o-x and Featured by ErikShoemaker )
:icondrury-lane:
Well Miss FrostAlexis, I wanted you to be my very first Critique.

First- I would just like to say how much I LOVE this piece! The jellyfish lights are an especially creative touch and the contrast against the blue background is very pleasing.

I love the air bubbles floating up and the decayed buildings in the back that reveal a place most beautiful, but sadly, almost completely forgotten.
I also love how beautifully you painted the lights in this picture, the glow coming off them looks very realistic to me and I love that you used complementary colors.

You give the mermaid life and humanity by her tireless work on a place that almost all has given up on or forgotten. It's almost as if she hopes to see the place bustling with life once again. Her care and concern really shines through this picture.

This is why, to me at least you were a huge success! You gave an fictional character life, motive, and feelings. This is not something that's easy to do but a great artist makes it look simple and you did just that!

I'm seriously impressed and proud of you!
