Here is my depiction of Lena as LIGHT, dutifully protecting the innocent from the darkness that seeks to assail it.
I wanted to illustrate her stubbornness to save a little winged fawn, and in the description it said she was an unnusually powerful Caster, so I also wanted to portray her ferocity even in the face of danger.
Around her neck she wears her pendant of keepsakes, and at her belt she has her book of poetry, something she had been writing in just moments before, inspired by the little deer she had come across, when the horrible goons emerged from the darkness.
I enormously enjoyed drawing this one, right from when I scribbled that leaping pose and the reaching hand to adding the last colors onto the little deer.
A great challenge to a fun contest.
