Assignments 3, 4, and 5 for Inspiration

Whoops! Looks like I've gotten a bit behind in updating my poor gallery. Let's play catch up, shall weh?

BTDubs, you may notice the wonderful largeness of the photos on here now, I expanded the entire blog! You can still click the images for a yet bigger size, though.

Here's my entry for Inspiration: Assignment 3. We were given a song to draw inspiration from for this one (Which is posted directly below). While most people got a peaceful, happy vibe from the song, the violins and bells in the background made me think of sadness and rain. Speaking of rain, this photo was the very first time I've ever edited rain into a photo. I tried to get a lot of detail going with it by adding splashes on the flat surfaces, and ripples in the water of the fountain. I'm SO so proud to say that this photo landed me first place, tied with ChicagoStorm's entry!

Here's my entry for Assignment 4. I can't find the photo it was inspired by, but it was a lone zebra standing right in the middle of a big herd of water buffalo. All I took away from it was the concept of standing out in a crowd, with a unique twist. I went for realism here with the hair drawing, mostly because the photo itself is a realistic sort of situation. I received first place for the second time in a row!

And finally my most recent entry for Assignment 5. Our inspiration this time was a beautiful CGI short film entitled Descendants (posted below). In the film, a beautiful white flower longs to be eaten by a deer-like creature because she wants to do more than just stay in the same place her whole life. In my photo, I switched out the flower for a beautiful forest nymph, and the deer creature for a stunning adventurer. He's so hot to me in this picture, yumyumyum! Haha. I unbelievably landed myself first place for the third time in a row!

Assignment 2 For Inspiration

Here's my entry for Inspiration's second assignment! This round we had to base our entry off of a video titled Sebastian's Voodoo (which I've posted below). There's an evil voodoo man in it stabbing these poor little defenseless dolls with needles, and that's who I modeled Lotus after. She's seen here, in the middle of the dense jungle, at her secluded little hut. We're no longer allowed to explain our photos to the judges, but it seems like they all got a fairly solid idea of what I was going for here. I actually landed myself third place for this, tied with Miss ChicagoStorm. I'm quite proud!

Here's a before and after shot to show the work I did on Lotus, taking her from a woman standing almost knee high in a river wearing a bikini to a tribal voodoo goddess. I made all accessories you see her from scratch, and I have to say, it was a really fun and rewarding experience, and I learned a lot for future edits.

Assignment 1 For Inspiration

I'm absolutely ecstatic about Evie's new competition, Inspiration. The whole basis behind it is so open and gives competitors very little boundaries when creating their entries. Above is mine for the first round, inspired by this photo:

I love how it turned out. It landed me second place by one point, right behind RD! I'm already pumped for the upcoming assignment, and have some ideas floating around in my head.

Assignment 3 For TOXIC Cycle 2

This was a completely non-editing round. Yikes. I've never done a picture before where I didn't edit at least something, so this was very unnerving for me. We had to depict our model at her worst on the runway. The story behind this is that Lotus was supposed to be in a techno/rave fashion show, but ended up going onto the wrong runway and crashing a gothic themed show.

Unfortunately, TOXIC Cycle 2 has been cancelled due to Jake's lack of time, which is completely acceptable. I had a blast while it lasted, though!

Assignment 2 For TOXIC Cycle 2

Woo! Pirates of the Caribbean FTW. For the "pick a celeb" round, I chose Keira Knightley and went TA TOWN with the POTC theme. You guys may recall in the movie when Jack and Will are in a rowboat on their way to rescue Elizabeth, and there's a bunch of treasure everywhere, including underwater. That's where I got the inspiration for this picture.

Assignment 1 For TOXIC Cycle 2

Oh my, it's been forever since I've posted on this blog! *Dusts off*

Anyways, here's my entry for assignment 1 of TOXIC, Cycle 2 with my newest model, Lotus Darkwind! It feels SO good to be back on the modeling competition scene, especially in as popular of a competition as the second cycle of TOXIC! I ended up getting second for this, right behind the incredibly talented PistolKitten. Here's the story behind this picture:

While most medieval alchemists focus on the purification of mind, body, and soul, Lotus concocts potions to hurt people...and tests them on herself. O.O
