First and foremost, I'm not pleased with this. It's not done by a long shot...I was planning on having all of Thursday and Friday to mess with it, but I was wiped out with the flu. Blech.

There's too much gamma in her skin, still...Too much specular on the clothes...the cloak is crunchy because I didn't allow it enough time to settle after I decreased the size of the polygons. That wouldn't so much matter in the finished version, because it calls for the cloak to be over-painted with feathers.

Sin is Pride, and this is an unfinished rendition of the Princess Magnificent With Lips of Coral and Robes of Black Feathers. Once she was a great hero, a Solar Exalt, but after she was murdered, she became a ghost who could not let go of the power she'd once had. She made a deal with a Primordial she'd once helped to slay and in return received untold power in her ghostly existence. Then, a millennia or so later, she revealed herself to Creation and was defeated. For the sin of her pride, for revealing the existence of the Deathlords to the lands of the living before it was time, she was to be devoured by her Neverborn master. Instead, she was given in servitude to another Deathlord, The First and Forsaken Lion, whom she hates with an unending passion. Prideful still, she disobeys him at every turn.

She is described in canon as wearing a robe of black feathers and a heron mask. The clothing under her cloak is green, and she never touches the ground when she walks.

There we go, I've finished the model, I was slightly disappointed by the fact the bandages on his arm came out rather dull but I am generally happy with his skin and face.

Click on the small images to get a better view, I really need to learn how to take pictures with a camera for my hobby. Also I may need to consider getting a white light, my current lamp gives off yellow light so some colors may have come out funny.

I am the Emperor's divine retribution. I am the shield that shall protect his flock, though I am but a single man I know that should I fall two more shall take my place. So long as my faith stands, I shall endure. So long as my will remains unbroken I shall smite our darkest foe. And as one, we are the hammer that our undying lord shall wield to shatter their skies.

With steel, fire or fist they shall fall before me. For I am the Emperor's wrath!

Whelp, I failed to make anything for the contest.
I should be able to make something for the next one though,
since I've got medication for my back pain now.
As for theme suggestion...

Judging is done and the results are in. They're on the first page in the original post for maximum tension :P. I have to say, it feels good to have ended the first CY in, what, two years?

The theme suggestions for the next round are:

Yin & Yang
Reflections
Wildlife
Plant things
Background/environment
Surrealism

Poll should be up shortly *hint hint, nudge nudge*. Contest starts again on monday!

Oh, and yes...I thought I posted this already, but I see that I didn't:
Congratulations to everyone who entered. Even if you weren't chosen as a winner, you did a fabulous thing by pushing yourself to be better and offering your work up to be judged, which can be a scary thing to do. You all deserve applause.

Glad to be of service. See it as a reward for making an good entry, because I won't be able to do a 'honorable mention' for everyone if we get much more entries (which I hope we do!).

Aye thanks heaps for the feedback bro. And I agree there would be some limitations for my choice but who knows what kind of rabbit I'll be able to pull out of my hat.
