CONTEST !!  Theme : KING OF SUMMER


Hello Everyone!

I'm happy to open my Art Contest !

                                            :sun:THEME AND INSPIRATION:sun:

The main theme is... KING OF SUMMER, the fairy king of a magical land called Arcadia.

The King of Summer is a quite young boy with flamingo feathers among his blonde hair.
He emodies the spirit of Summer, so he has a funny smile, a bright laughter and a velvet jacket.

Last summer he had kidnapped a sweet lillte girl, called AnnaGiulia, and entertained her telling her a lot of
fairytales, meeting the peolple of his Court, the Court of Summer... satyrs, fairies, misterious noble lords and ladies.

The Court of Summer usually takes great masquerades and parties where gracious ladies dance with courteus lords
while the music is filling the air all around.

In the main story about the King of Summer, there also are some subthmese as: masquerade, the love between Spring and Autumn, two beautiful faeries that steal long hair
from a handsome young man, an ogre that enslaves kidnapped humans and force them to drag a heavy chariot, the fight between the Summer and Winter  and so on...

Hi, really interesting contest you have here!!! :D
I just finished reading all the details and I already have a couple of ideas that I'd like to try...
Just one question, though: the summer king has blonde hair but what about his eyes? I'm not a big fan of the blonde hair-blue eye cliche but I feel that I need to ask you, just in case!!! ;p

Wonderful! :D
I'm happy that you're interested in my contest.
Well, the King of Summer has green eyes, even thogh they can change with the weather.
So you can personalize his eyes as much as you want. :)

Lots of love!

How old is AnnaGiulia? Approximately that is.. I think this contest is very cute by the way, will give it a try :)
irinama's avatar
irinamaHobbyist Digital Artist
AnnaGiulia is about 15 years old.
She has black hair and dark eyes and a funny smile. :)

These are my general indications, you can personalize obviously the character.

Lots of love!
