Embracing the Light by Ai-Don Embracing the Light by Ai-Don
My entry for DA's Beautiful Creatures Light or Dark Contest. I have not read any of the books so I relied on the the pictures and art style of the film to create my composition. I made her becoming a light caster to contrast with her dress that she is wearing in the poster and I used colors to create the warmth of light and the impression of sunrise in the background.

Done in markers, fine tipped pens, glitter gel pens, a white gel pen, and colored pencils.

Thank you so much, especially hearing that from a talented artist like yourself. This was for a contest on DA for the movie "Beautiful Creatures," I worked hard on this piece to try to make it far, but I was bummed that I did not even make the top 25.

Don't feel too bad, I didn't make it in their smoking contest with my Second hand smoke piece after so many people said it would make it to the top 40. It was a major bummer at the time too.
I think it has a lot to do with who's choosing the pieces, what they want, and I'm pretty sure there are some other things behind the scenes like who's the 'artist pet' so to speak. Not to mention, I've never had any luck with Moonbeam who's over a lot of that stuff, daily deviations, etc.
Regardless of all that, I love your piece! Very beautiful and inspirational! You could write a story off this work!
