:iconmiss-oc-pageant: Round Four: Winter Wear

Her Majesty sets out on a little polar jaunt with a friendly bear, suitably garbed for snow and ice in a gown of, er... snow and ice.

Well, she seems comfortable enough, I guess that's what counts!

And she seems to have left another palace in her wake. (An ice palace, naturally!) She's positively littering palaces throughout this tournament.

Haha, now to try and finish the other entry at the extreeeme last minute, why do I always do this...

POLAR BEAR.  A noble steed.  I positively love your shading here; you have so much white on the image, but the ice and snow and the Queen's dress fringes all look different.

Thanks! :) Ha, yeah, all that white-on-white-on-white was excruciatingly tricky to deal with. But worth it in the end!

And of course everything is better with polar bears. =D

I can't handle your entries ever. They are too regal; too detailed; too incredible ;_;

Thanks! :hug: I hope they're regal enough to suit her majesty and her polar bears!

WHAT?! POLAR BEARS?! WE'RE GONNA FLY OVER POLAR BEARS?! AND SEE THEM AND LOOK AT THEM AND BE WITH THE POLAR BEARS?!

I'm sorry, I could not resist! :dummy: But yes, it's a brilliant entry and a polar bear makes it even better! :D And the background looks great by the way!

WE HAVE TO LOOK AT THE POLAR BEARS!! Well, really, when there are polar bears, nothing else matters... =D

And thanks! :) This pageant has given me some much-needed practice with backgrounds anyway, even if it has sort of ended with a whimper... (I wish they hadn't deleted the whole group. This is gonna make it harder to catch up on the entries I missed while I was busy.)

Yeah, same... :( I can understand deciding to bow out when everything gets too much but there are more mature ways to do it than deleting the whole group and pretending the whole thing never happened, especially since most contestants I've seen were incredibly polite and understanding about the whole thing.

Heh, you're not as late as me, I'm still finishing my last entry and it's too late to quit... :P I'm glad I got to tell that story but sometimes I wish the whole thing fell apart sooner because I was going to just give up on the comic and then they finally announced Round 4 and I thought "what the heck, I'll wrap it up".

Yeeeeaah, that could have been better handled. :( I'm especially bummed because I hadn't had time to catch up on everyone's entries yet, and now it's going to be extremely difficult to find them all again. (Plus it always feels like a slap in the face when all your work is suddenly erased like that. This is the second tournament I've been in where that's happened, though the first time it was an accident and they at least tried to put it all back.)

At least you can wrap it up in your own time now with no deadlines. I had a couple of extras and outtakes I was going to do as well, I suppose I'll just do them whenever now.

Thanks! =D Of course, she has the entire royal treasury at her disposal, that's always a plus for maintaining high style... ;)

She moved around WAY too many palaces... and mountains. And dragons. She isn't queen of the Randomain just for... well, title.

She won't let anyone forget who's queen, that's for sure! She'll leave a Royal Gift wherever she goes, like it or not! :XD:

Oh, that's just beautiful! Love your brushwork, as always, and the atmosphere of this entire thing is gorgeous!

Thanks! :) I've been having fun with this looser brushy coloring style... Even with the weird sudden ending I'm glad I did this tournament, it gave me an excuse to experiment.

Holy gracious, this is AMAZING! I absolutely love it, that pop of red on the reins and gloves is so smart. It really helps lead the eye. GODSPEED on your second one! YOU CAN DO IT! w00t!

Thanks. :) That bit of red was one of those fortunate last-minute decisions where I look at it and say "hmm, it needs something," and throw something in at random and it actually works... (Unlike the last-minute decisions that don't work, heh.)
