7/30- I apologize for my delay on announcing the end of the contest. It turned out to be a busy week for me and am now playing catchup with emails and social messages.
The following are the three entries I received and well my winners! Yay!
In first we have this lovely piece
which I feel best reflects Seraphinas personality, style and not just that but the detail of this piece is astounding. I was blown away by all the attention to the design on the dress and leggings. It happens to be Seras favorite outift and I feel it was interpreted to purfection. I love the textures of the background and the shadow is pretty wonderful. All around I feel it was beautifully executed. Thank you
In second we have this cool piece
which I adore. I think the outfit that was created for Sera is amazing. It's totally something she could wear and I feel the way this outfit was planned out is genius. I especially love the top part of the leotard with the clever addition of the thunderbird. I mean, LOVE it! Very cool!
for being so darn incredible!
Lastly, but definitely not least we have
with a grand depiction of Sera in a super hero outing. I love the colors that were used here, they are the colors I envisioned for Seras outfit. I also like the neat display of the cape that reflects the idea of wings. I love that time was taken to place her in a lovely night scene.

YOUR CHOICE OF CHARACTERS*
What to draw:
Name: Seraphina Queen
Fantasy: Possess thunderbird physiology.
Age: 33 yrs old
Hair color: Plum (light purpleishpink) with streaks of blonde. Blonde when in Thunderbird mode.
Eye color: blue or half blue and pink when in thunderbird mode.
Skin color: light tan.
Birds of all kinds. Flowers, rainy days, fine art and reading.
She loves to drink wine but you'll never find her overly intoxicated. She has an affinity for martial arts
Fresh cut flowers, chauvinists, corrupt government officials/ people of power and corrupt people in general.
Seraphina comes from a family of crime fighters. She never really wanted to follow the family career transitions but then her mother who was one of the cities best prosecuting attorneys was murdered during a high end trial and her father lost his job as Captain after loosing himself in booze. It was then that she decided to apply to the academy and try to find justice for not only for her mother but for the people. She excelled through all training given her family background and schooling, but was always over looked. Superiors felt she was too young, pretty and really not suited to be able to handle real police work. She was given a desk job which she put up with in hopes that her value in the force would stop being over looked because of her pretty face. After a year of papers and chauvinistic pigs she lost the hope that shed ever be able to bring criminals to justice. Just as she was handing in her resignation she got a lead to a secretive case being handled on a federal level. She thought it could be her chance to show she is worth more than a secretary but what she found changed her life completely....
Sera thinks of herself as a fairly pleasant person who is kinda laid back and likes most people. However generally is viewed as a vain and condescending temptress out to destroy relationships. She never means to make anyone uncomfortable, just happens to find the wrong men to engage in flirtatious chatter with. She has never really had a deep relationship even though she is popular among the men, they tend not to trust her in the end. This has made her a little bitter through out the years and often wanders away from family and friends spending her time traveling the world studying different cultures, training in different
forms on combat and sometimes secretly seeks justice for locals who can not trust officials to do the right thing.
Still with me? Here are is more info for art ideas and characters you can draw with Sera - Sera MUST be in the artwork:
Super Hero ideas:
Costume: I have no references of this as she has not been drawn out as such. I imagine she should have a leotard something like Black canary, but be it two colors, kinda like Wonderwoman. but have like a tunderbird like image like the phonix on the top. haha. I know all these super heros combined. I would totally be ok with any ideas you would like to create for her. Keep in mind she has Thunderbird Physiology
She could have some red wings, though she does not always have her wings out. She could wear a mask or headdress of some sort. I'm open to costume design ideas.
She often works with Oliver Queen (NO Relation) AKA The Green Arrow.
Drawing her with any characters from the show 'Arrow' would be absolutely OK! I LOVE IT.
Drawing her with any DC superheros or supervillans would really be cool but the focus should be Sera! I'm just tossing ideas out for inspiration.
Here are more characters you can draw her with. I would love if you could at least ck out the links.
You can draw Seraphina however you would like alone or with the characters posted. Head shot, bust shot or full scene, so long as there is no nudity however sexy is totally fine (swimsuit shot or lingerie) but keep it PG 13.
The art will be judged based on a few points listed below. 1 &2 are far more important than 3.
. Is the concept creative and original? Have the characters been depicted being in character or are they out of character? Which things has the artist added to make the entry interesting?
. Is the work of quality? Regardless of skill, is there visibly a lot of effort put into the entry? Is it rough or are there details painted? Is it a sketch or is it a fully colored entry with a background? Was it rushed or was it carefully made?
. How well were shadow and lighting used? How's the anatomy? What is the skill level used in the entry? How's the perspective, the scenery, the technical details?
You made it to the end!
I appreciate you taking the time to read, share and enter the contest.
As always, Thank you so much for your incredible support. Much appreciated. <3
