What to draw:
Fantasy: Possess thunderbird physiology. Age: 33 yrs oldHair 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. Likes: 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 Dislikes: Fresh cut flowers, chauvinists, corrupt government officials/ people of power and corrupt people in general. Bio: 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:
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. Love interest: Auberon (not my character, used with permission) If you choose to draw them together, it should show them as if first meeting and falling in love. Nothing sexual.
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.
A little Bio so you know a bit more about the character:Hair Color: SilverEye Color: Silver
Likes: Being the centre of attention, being surrounded by beautiful people, good food, good drink and strangely enough also plant life Friends: Leaf (Belongs to )If you choose to draw them together it should show them having a good time. Drinking wine and being cluelessly sexy. OR Leaf taking care of/making up some healing potion for Sera after a vigilante trow down.
Dislikes: Being Ignored or turned down
Short Biography: King of the Unseelie Court in the land of Faerie, he is selfish, manipulative and beautiful. He does things that 'amuse' him, however, what amuses him could be to care for and build up some poor lost soul, or it could be to make someone dance to death for his amusement. He's neither entirely good nor entirely bad. As a young prince his father and the Seelie Queene arranged a match for him with the newborn princess to take effect when she was old enough. He was so unhappy with this thought that he kidnapped the child and cast it into the human world.

Leaf is fairly energetic and clumsy at times. She is always out to help people and from her naively kind demeanor, does not make much money giving away her services for free. She has been known to go off into public rants when bullying occurs in town. She has a lot of knowledge of land and nature, but not much else. She comes from a clan of Deer that made a pact with a Regions Dragon (A Dragon bound to protect a specific land” and was given Demi god life. Although not particularly any more powerful than another species, they were given longevity for life and an ability to harness Dragon form for a short time with their amulets intact. Leaf set out on her own and became a potion maker after much trial and error and a few books she found in various towns. She is known now for having very unusual potions that can do more than healing. She has a small vineyard to help pay for some of her expenses, however she ends up drinking a lot of her stock! Enemies: Casper Macedon If you choose to draw them together it should be a fight. Real name: (Titular) Aslan Maahas Fantasy: WerelionAge: unknownEye color: GrayHair color: black Short bio: Casper was born to be King of his Pride who are protectors of all that is pure and good. Every King is evaluated by The Fates when to ensure that there is no evil rooted deep in their heart. There was unfaithfulness with the guardians among the pride and dark magic was used to trow off The Fates judgments which revealed a very dark future that sealed his fate in death. His parents knew in their heart that it was a terrible mistake and secretly sent him away an orphan in hopes that with time they could reveal traitors among the group and get him back. Casper was found and raised by the Russian mob for 7 years. The Bratva was quick to realize Caspers special talents, as a young cub his abilities were strong and impulsive, never meaning to be 'evil', simply a child out to play and no one correcting his bad actions. By the time his parents found him, it was too late to allow him to come back to the pride. Even though his faults were not intentionly his own it now truely showed a dark spot in his heart. His parents revealed themselves to him through a vision and told him that his purpose in life was to be good, to seek the light. It became a recurring dream, but it wasn't until years later that he decided to stand for the better, hiding his true strength from and fighting against the Bratva. Although he did break free from the brotherhood he did not stay on his path for good, never truly cutting ties with the Bratva. He set up his own band of criminals with a concise and eventually build his own empire. He gets contracted for different types of work always trying to be a good guy about it....Casper is actually in love with Sera. Sera has feelings for him as well but can not forgive him for being responsible for her mother's death. They dated prior to her knowledge of his involvement. Love/hate relationship dramas. 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. 1. Concept. 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? 2. Effort. 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? 3. Skill. 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?
