I have wanted to create an artwork to represent one of my favorite heroines, Hadassah, better known as Esther, the Jewish queen of Persia. Hadassah is Queen Esther's Hebrew name and means "myrtle tree." I painted the face and most of the dress of the model which is my most extensive painting ever done. I used the original stock image as a reference and tried to paint her as close to original as possible, with subtle changes such as eye color, mouth and nose shape/size. It is not perfect, especially the mouth, but as it is only my 3rd time using my tablet I am quite proud of the results. I could have just created a straight up photomanipulation but I am wanting to practice my painting so I painted most of her. dA Stock Credits <a h ref="http://adamselindesign.deviantart.com/art/Veiled-Stock-09-443027246">Veiled Stock 09</a> by <a href="http://lizzie-bitty.deviantart.com/">Lizzie-Bitty</a> <a href="http://adamselindesign.deviantart.com/art/Lavender-sunset-197243467">Lavender Sunrise</a> by <a href="http://cathleentarawhiti.deviantart.com/">CathleenTarawhiti</a> Bracelet is my own that I photographed for this.

After my first entry, the <a href="http://fav.me/d6f7pop">portrait repaint</a>, I began to see a striking resemblance to the actress <a href="http://images4.fanpop.com/image/photos/17500000/Melanie-Lynskey-melanie-lynskey-17509809-500-500.jpg">Melanie Lynskey</a> who has starred in Two and a Half Men, but most remembered to me from the miniseries based off of Stephen King's Rose Red. This resemblance gave me the idea to create my own "Rose Red" of sorts, but not a true fanart. This piece is inspired by Rose Red but is of my own imagination. To date, L'esprit de Rose Rouge Château, which basically translates to <em>The Spirit of Rose Red Manor</em>, is my largest piece and consists of exactly 90 Photoshop layers and adjustment layers. My next largest piece is <a href="http://fav.me/d3j0n07">A Maiko's Hope</a> at approximately 60 Photoshop layers and adjustment layers. The credit list is quite extensive, I apologize if I miss somebody. I will add any missing credits the moment I notice them. deviantART Stock Credits <a href="http://brin-kennedy-stock.deviantart.com/art/Portrait-Challenge-388224842">Model</a> <a href="http://fav.me/d1fzhrh">Spirit</a> <a href="http://fav.me/d2hligr">Hedge Maze</a> <a href="http://damselstock.deviantart.com/art/Beautiful-Angel-PNG-File-391654366">Stone Woman</a> & <a href="http://damselstock.deviantart.com/art/Stone-Urn-Variations-PNG-File-391757022">Stone Urn</a> <a href="http://fav.me/d3jai3a">Stormy Sky</a> <a href="http://fav.me/d6gf6nf">Tree (Left)</a> <a href="http://kuschelirmel-stock.deviantart.com/art/Tree-Silhouette-Brushes-183422539">Tree Silhouette Brush (Right)</a> <a href="http://fantasybackgroundsstore.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=21&products_id=544">Climbing Roses</a> & <a href="http://fantasybackgroundsstore.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=21&products_id=527">Rose Bushes</a> <a href="http://pixasso79-stock.deviantart.com/art/Rose-II-PNG-322529704">Single Rose (Ghost's Hand)</a> <a href="http://ybsilon-stock.deviantart.com/art/Exotic-Tendril-II-344760465">Ivy</a> <a href="http://kencho.deviantart.com/art/Bats-brushes-27854473">Bat Brushes</a> <a href="http://trisste-brushes.deviantart.com/art/EYELASHES-brushes-345661401">Eyelash Brushes</a> Fotolia Stock Credits <a href="http://us.fotolia.com/id/51652154">Kentwell Hall</a> by <a href="http://us.fotolia.com/p/202050287">Diana Mower</a> purchased from <a href="http://us.fotolia.com/p/202887612/partner/202887612">Fotolia</a> <a href="http://us.fotolia.com/id/22505397">Roses (Right Foreground)</a> by <a href="http://us.fotolia.com/p/200982272">Nito</a> purchased from <a href="http://us.fotolia.com/p/202887612/partner/202887612">Fotolia</a> The details were painted in Adobe Photoshop CS6 Extended. <b>OW Ref #62921</b> This work is Copyright Protected by <a href="https://myows.com/refer/2267/">MyOWs</a>.

He was the founder and Great Khan (emperor) of the Mongol Empire, which became the largest empire in history after his death in August 1227. Genghis Khan came to power by uniting many of the nomadic tribes of northeast Asia. After creating the Mongol Empire and being proclaimed "Genghis Khan," he started the Mongolian invasions that resulted in the conquest of most of Eurasia. By the end of his life, the Mongol Empire occupied a substantial portion of Central Asia and China. Genghis Khan was actually pretty tolerant of the various religions and was interested in learning philosophical and moral lessons from them. He often consulted Buddhist monks, Muslims, Christian missionaries, and even the Taoist monk Qiu Chuji to learn about their beliefs. He is definitely an interesting man who should be remembered for more than the massacre of civilian populations. deviantART Stock Credits <a href="http://fav.me/d57cfjh">Gengis Khan</a> <a href="http://fav.me/d4crrc0">Bird</a> <a href="http://fav.me/d39fm17">Sunset</a> <a href="http://fav.me/d1swcy9">Flock of Birds</a> Other stocks bought from Fotolia.

This is my first time entering one of Jessica's challenges as usually my schedule never affords me the time to participate. Anyway, as soon as I saw the challenge stock posted I decided to try something Doctor Who related, specifically with series 7's Clara Oswin Oswald, The Impossible Girl. It took me quite a while to get the faces of the snowmen looking right. I used a reference directly from the episode and painted it in from scratch in Photoshop. I am pretty proud of the way they came out. Look closely in the back... you will find Dr. Simeon/The Great Intelligence. I am dedicating this to Jessica as if not for her I would NOT be a Whovian! She got me interested in Doctor Who through a few comments a little over a year ago and suggested I start watching with the 9th Doctor and Rose. Now, a year and a Sonic Screwdriver, yes I own one and my nephew Seth owns a TARDIS lunch box, later I am a huge Whovian. <b>deviantART Stock Credits</b> <a href="http://faestock.deviantart.com/art/Victoriana-384620023">Clara Oswald</a> <a href="http://mjranum-stock.deviantart.com/art/Dark-Alleyways-343151080">The Great Intelligence</a> <a href="http://gothicbohemianstock.deviantart.com/art/Stock-Tardis-2-94458623">TARDIS</a> <a href="http://jssanda.deviantart.com/art/Pre-Cut-PNG-Snowman-340416921">Snowmen</a> <a href="http://elleth-stock.deviantart.com/art/Elleth-stock-564-189914655">Street</a> <a href="http://sun-stock.deviantart.com/art/Winter-Time-43614441">Lantern</a> <a href="http://burtn.deviantart.com/art/Field-Of-Snow-355057352">Snowy Tracks</a> <a href="http://athenastock.deviantart.com/art/AthenaStock-Snowy-Shrub-14399055">Snowy Shrub</a> <a href="http://rinataz.deviantart.com/art/Snow-Textures-192455570">Snowflake Textures</a> <b>OW Ref #62422</b> This work is Copyright Protected by <a href="https://myows.com/refer/2267/">MyOWs</a>.

She is associated with wild animals and woodland area, and with having the ability to talk to and control animals. Her Grecian equivalent is Artemis and her twin brother is Apollo. Diana was worshiped in ancient the Roman religion and is revered in Roman Neopaganism and Stregheria; also Dianic Wicca is named for her. Since Diana has a Grecian equivalent in Artemis, I chose to use Mount Olympus as the backdrop to tie Greece and Rome together.</h4> <b>deviantART Stock Credits</b> <a href="http://piratelotus-stock.deviantart.com/art/Diana-323710929">Diana</a> <a href="http://fav.me/d4dz5ym">Sunset</a> <a href="http://fav.me/dzmn3s">Bow & Arrow</a> <a href="http://fav.me/d5j1t9l">Exclusive Painted Hair Pack</a> <b>Brushes</b> <a href="http://fav.me/d1vojvc">Branch Brushes</a> <a href="http://esmeralda-stock.deviantart.com/art/Tree-Branches-Brushes-71503063">Tree Branch Brushes</a> <a href="http://fav.me/d33vi8h">Corners with Birds</a> <a href="http://fav.me/d4zbc7k">Birds of a Feather</a> <b>Renderosity Stock</b> <a href="http://www.renderosity.com/mod/freestuff/details.php?item_id=66809">Silver of the Past vol. 3</a> <b>Fotolia Stock</b> <a href="http://us.fotolia.com/id/30153032">Mount Olympus</a> <em>The rest (moon, starry night sky, and other details) painted by me with my mouse in Adobe Photoshop CS6! </em> This work is Copyright Protected by <a href="https://myows.com/refer/2267/">MyOWs</a>, OW Ref #60932. <h3><small>Copyright ©2013 <a href="http://adamselindesign.deviantart.com/">Casey L.

I have always been fascinated by and loved early 20th century circus and carnival sideshow/freak shows and have been wanting to create my own interpretations of what some of the exhibits might have been like. Here we have a beautiful, buxom bearded lady. This is just one of a new series of artworks I would like to make. I will say that painting facial hair on someone who normally shouldn't have any did prove a challenge, especially to do with a mouse! I began working on my contest entry the very day Ida posted the contest info as I immediately thought about creating a bearded lady and knew exactly which stock photo of hers I wanted to use. However, I have been having nothing but trouble coming up with a background I liked. I created probably 5 different backgrounds and something just didn't feel right to me. Finally, on the last day of the contest things came together for me to where I am satisfied. This is my first time entering a contest here on deviantART! <b>deviantART Stock Credits</b> <a href="http://fav.me/d4av870">La Chambre Exclusives</a> <a href="http://fav.me/d23fyuh">Feather Brushes Set 2</a> <a href="http://us.fotolia.com/id/572251">Curtains</a> <em>Sunburst created by me in Photoshop CS6.
