Nothing green can stay. by Laura-Mellark Nothing green can stay. by Laura-Mellark
OH MY GOD GUYS I FINISHED IT.

I have put an insane amount of effort into this piece, and no matter if it wins or not, I am incredibly proud of the results.

So, let me give a little explanation:
-the necklace from the books is in her left hand, and due to the fact that it embodies everything Lena is, I gave it a light aura.
-the swirls are pieces of shadow
-this is the mausoleum where Ethan is...oh, wait, spoilers for those who haven't read the books. NEVERMIND! those who have read will know what I mean.
-Lena's converse are still on her feet. She's just not Lena without them in my mind.

I absolutely fell in love with her claiming dress in the trailer, so I had to draw her in it. It's not exactly like it, but I did it from memory, so that's that!

Good luck to all the other contestants! Some of the pieces I've seen are absolutely gorgeous!

I love the rendering and detail you put into this! :love: Your effort truly shows, from the soft, silky shading to the folds of the dress. The whole picture has an eerie, nostalgic quality as well, perhaps from the monochrome palette. :P I think the shadows and hair turned out nicely as well, and the expression on her face is full of arrogance and malice, yet also playful and sardonic. Great work! :clap:
