I will accept the last of the submissions now, and will start working on picking out the winners :)

:bulletwhite::bulletred::bulletblack:The Queens Of Darkness:bulletwhite::bulletred::bulletblack:


:bulletwhite: White :bulletwhite:


Delicate yet deadly, simple yet sophisticated, she is the master of trickery and deception. Far from being just a pretty face, the white queen is known for her intelligence and her love of illusions, be careful or you may just find yourself in a very unfortunate situation. She is always paying careful attention to everything around her, very little happens in her kingdom without her finding out about it. You may be thinking "how is it that no one has stood up to her?" and to that there is only one answer, how many white queens can you stand up too?

:bulletred: Red :bulletred:


Graceful, beautiful and completely insane, her love for machines and her complete disregard for human life helped the red queen build her empire from the steel of the earth. She spends most of her time tinkering in her workshop, or in her library eating (much to the annoyance of her butler Mr. Carrotsworth) Please note that Mr. Carrotsworht's real name is Edward and that carrotsworth is a nickname given to him by his insane employer...
A word of advice, unless you know how to disassemble giant constructs.. avoid annoying her.


:bulletblack: Black :bulletblack:


Black is what you would call the adventurous type, she enjoys swimming, hiking, summoning demons from the netherworld to torment mortals (which is odd because she is a mortal herself) and creating unique potions and poisons which she subsequently use on aforementioned demons when she gets bored.
Though small in stature the black queen is a force to be reckoned with, with her sizzling potions and her unusual army (you don't see many demonic 12 year olds riding giant mushrooms every day) she has managed to conquer an entire continent, her scars are proof of her adventurous life.


The Contest + Rules
Hi there guys The-Average-Alex here.
So finally after a long time here is the Queen of Darkness contest which you voted for.

So, for this contest we want you to create a queen of darkness,more specifically one of the queens that i have described. White, red and black each have unique personalities and quirks and what we want you guys to do is capture this in your artwork!
You are able to create artwork for as many queens as you like, and there is no limit to how many submissions you can submit. however only 1 of you submission will be chosen as a winner.

Special rules
Each queen has a SECOND colour which must be displayed somewhere in the artwork.

Artwork for the White queen must have the colour red in it


Artwork for the Red Queen must have the colour black in it


Artwork for the Black queen must have the colour white in it



So for example if i chose to create a picture of the White Queen the colour WHITE would definitely have to play a big part in the picture, i would also need to make sure that the colour RED is used somewhere in
the artwork, for example on her ring, or i could have blood somewhere in the picture, like on the floor or dripping from the walls.
Hopefully that makes these special rules a little easier to understand.

Here are some examples of what i mean
False Bliss by AF-studios aftermath by AF-studios steampunk lady by AF-studios

Hello! I want to join this contest, but in your F.A.Q. you say "You can submit One deviation every month" so what happens if I want to submit more than one entry this month? Thanks in advance,

You are creating a character based off my descriptions. You can interpret them any way you want but there needs to be some sort of connection.

A digital art contest with a web/UI design category! Neat. I realised recently that human-computer interaction is what I want to do more and this contest sounds like a great place to start having fun with designs:)

A little question (or three) to clarify some things:
UI design could be for some program the queen might use, right? An organiser for summonings, poison recipe book, a little app to show the state of her latest project? How will this section be judged?

The interpretation of the subject matter is completely up to you.
what you just suggested as an example is 100% awesome.

And when it comes to judging it stays the same across all categories.
I look for originality, how well the subject matter was interpreted, good technique, basic design elements and principles, relevancy to subject matter. just the standard stuff.
