The Red Queen by Libellula The Red Queen by Libellula
"The Great Queen from above... she is the queen tyrannic... This is the time of worshipping her figure before she extracts from the kidneys its vigour."
Dark Moor - Phantom Queen

EDIT: Well, finally I had time to improve this image. I repainted some parts, worked a lot with lightning and color, I think looks much better than the original. It´s something I´m gonna make for every single paint of mine here.

Closeups here: [link]

Painted in Photoshop CS5, the original size is huge xD. References of the model for those who asked: It´s me, I´m the one portrayed there. Not as a matter of ego, just contest requirements :giggle:

Portraying The Red Queen with this soft feel is a bit of trickery -- that such a vile, mercurial, tyrannical figure could be imagined so beautifully somehow makes it even more sinister. I like the chosen card. And the expression. Good one.

Now here is a picture in your gallery deserving of a DD. Had you not already received one, I would have recommended this one in a hearbeat! Beautifully done, not simply for the quality of the image, but for the emotion on her face: very haughty indeed :D Lovely work!

Thank you very much! :hug: If this is a DD one day, omg, I´d feel totally egocentric because I used myself as a model (contest requirements xD), but yes, this was much more complicated to paint than the other which was a simple practice. And still, I have to add and improve lots of things in this one, lightning and color, but I have no time right now. Hope soon ^^

Thank you so much for your advice!! And specially with this image! I really want to repaint a lot of parts and fix the light, but the date of the contest didn´t allow me to polish it the way I wanted. But now that it doesn´t matter, I will definitely follow your advice ^^. Thanks again!! :hug:

beautiful work...I know why they didn't choose certain artist designs...Disney company has a very specific family oriented format....the darkness of this was probably too hardcore for their tastes...so many artists got played in this contest...wow

Yes, I think you´re right, judges wanted something closer to Disney´s image. And think that I´m planning to paint heads there in a near future o_O. Haha, anyway, thanks a lot for your words sweetie, I truly appreciate them ^^
