"Light"

"Claim or be Claimed
Shed blood, Shed tear
Moon or Sun - destroy, revere"

Humans have great capacity for love and destruction - we choose our own path. Will we sit idly by and life set its course for us or will we actively pursue what we feel is right and true? Everyone follows their inner guiding light; I believe that Lena does the same, regardless of how she is claimed.

I really enjoyed working on this piece and felt it was a great opportunity to explore mood and portraiture.

Programs used:
Photoshop CS5
Wacom Intous 3

Assets that I used are available for download from the contest entry page:

This is the lower-resolution version of what I painted, the original is 5500x3000

Beautiful work! Fine and clean, well composed and a solid color scheme. +Points for doing an original piece. I'm still in the learning-curve of my Intuous 3. Seeing stuff like this, really gets me excited to keep practicing. Thank you, and good luck in the contest.

That's very kind of you to say, I really appreciate your feedback. At its original resolution, it's not so clean - you can really see the brush marks and jagged selections. The Intous3 is a wonderful tool though, you're going to love it! Keep it up and you'll keep improving!

I think that it was a good idea to make her light. also most of the rest of them look like they had just been put through a filter on photoshop.

Thanks, I'm glad you like it! I tried to keep the color scheme of the background consistent with Lena's new look.

Awww, thanks a bunch! Also, your username is fantastic - it fits your avatar well. That owl always creeped me out when I was a kid, though..
