    contestant [pok3ydot]----2nd place winner



    username: pok3ydot
    artwork name: mazu



    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mazu_(goddess) legend says she wore a red robe to guide sailors and fishermen back to land. a red robe is too red for me so i drew a red ribbon? originally nothing was colored except for the red ribbon but my brother said it looked strange if that is the only thing colored so i went for all color


    truthfully, i wanted it in black and white because i am not too familiar with photoshop. i only know a few things like painting, smudging, and spray painting. it was such a pain to color it i was happy with how the water turned out! (it actually looks like water). i'm proud of myself...even though it's not the best coloring (it is still kind of blurry) but hey, this is my photoshopping at the fullest extent so. nothing i can do about it. her dress and hair are floating as the water is floating and ah... i am semi-satisfied with the results. well, that is all. enjoy.


    for this theme, i found an old doodle from middle school and redrew it. (see attached images below)

    How pretty~ I really like the way you colored it. I know it's digital, but sort of resembles colored pencils.

    It looks really nice
    Love her clothes and hair--they are both very well done.

    My only critique is that her hand looks a bit contorted to me, and also she is not utilizing her opposable thumb You can see all five of her fingers in her grip, which just seems a little unnatural for handling a staff to me.

    Other than that, it's truly beautiful~ Love the coloring job you did!

    It looks fine now that her thumb is behind the staff
