Lena's Tempest by wylielise Lena's Tempest by wylielise
A tempest of bright magic, stirred up by the wings of a hundred birds.
More art: www.wyliebeckert.com

UPDATE: Thrilled to announce that this piece took first place in the Beautiful Creatures contest! The authors of Beautiful Creatures even took the time to pass along a few words on the piece:

"We each chose this piece for the Grand Prize without even discussing it; We found it to be true to the Lena of our novels as well as the film. We noted the charm necklace, the Chucks, the 'Caster breeze' in the dynamic, curling hair, and the 'naturalist' element with the doves. Well done!"

Many thanks to Ms. Garcia & Ms. Stohl - I thought long and hard about how to portray the character, and it was awesome to hear that my illustration matched their own vision for Lena!

To all those who have asked about the medium: It's pencil and white charcoal on tinted charcoal paper, scanned & colored in Photoshop. You can see a progress pic of the pencil art over at my sketchblog, link below:

I'm so glad you won. This piece speaks on so many levels. Maybe even more that the literature. Beautiful work, and fan for life! <3
