Dear artists,

It's time for another Brans Entertainment contest:
The challenge:

Create an artistic impression, painting, digital painting, drawing, whatever you wish; of Cygnisia the Swan-maiden, below you'll find a short story as reference as well as references to the Swan Maidens. I've also attached some of the previous contest winners to give you an impression of what kind of quality we're aiming for. There is no particular style required, feel free to use whatever you think is best and surprise us with you best effort.


------
short story:
------
Located just two days south-west of the small village Embrough. The lake springs forth from a underground spring, the water is clear and the surface is flat like a mirror. It is said that this lake is one of the few pieces of land that remained undamaged by the wildfires that destroyed many of the ancient forests.
Crystal is surrounded by dense natural forests that give way for some natural clearings near the lake. The clearings are sometimes used as resting place by forest creatures. The trees are very old, maybe even ancient. A certain air of serenity and magic hangs in the air as sprites and pixies use the edges of the lake the play their games.
Adventurers, scholars and sages have speculated that this lake is the home of a Swan-maiden flock led by the Cygnisia, a Swan-maiden who's beauty is only surpassed by her wisdom.

    Thanks all artists involved! Due to the quality and effort you've all put in I've decided to reward not one (1) but two (2) winners! The winners of this contest are CraigD amd almazsharipov.
    CraigD due his compelling way of telling a complete story in his artwork.
    almazsharipov for portraing Cygnisia in a tranquil, sof and gentle way.

    Close runners up were slashcl (great colors and style, you lost me with her face though), jebirvoki (very nice but a bit to sexy for my taste) and hoangtknt (great style and artwork).

    Obviously all other entries are appreciated as well and there are many positive things I could say about all of them but it would take me ages. For now.. congrats to the winners! And thanks for all your effort, you're truly talented people all.

    See you next time. And feel free to follow me on freelancer or on facebook to keep up to date on more contests and news!

    Hello M3mnon, pleased to meet you. I noticed Freelancer shrunk my painting so that you can't make out her face, even in full mode it's not actually the full size of the painting I uploaded. I'd like to ask if it did that for you, or if you're able to download the full size so you can see her face and details?

    If not I can crop it so that it can be seen clearly, thank you for your response,

    Trevor.

      Anthropolog, i felt the need to make the comment above at your remark: "...some other people will spend their time painting, when they could photo manipulate for you". But nevermind... All good!
