Emelia Forestbraid by Kriddles Emelia Forestbraid by Kriddles

This is my first contest entry to Seventh Sanctum, and I do so love her. The contest was Cross-Genre Characters. Her name is Emelia Forestbraid, and she is a Magic(al) Botanist. I will be doing two coloured versions of her. One Digital, and the other in Prismacolor Colored Pencils (which my friend has demanded in the past for me to do).

Her story?

Emelia Bogurt was a typical geek who loved comic books (Batman was her favorite. She idolized Poison Ivy), adored boys, and usually had a man-eating plant in her room that had been cross-bred with Hyena, Cougar, or Killer Wasp DNA. Pimples usually accessorized her cheeks rather than blush and concealer. She was flat chested, with a surfboard figure. Her hair was nothing special to look at (It was usually tossed up in a ponytail) her eyes were muddy brown.

However, as she grew up, the pimples faded and her chest filled in. She actually grew a figure that made the boys think of sin. But alas her mind was not all there. Looking up to Poison Ivy, she lost her sanity. Plants where her life, no longer boys. She didn't care about them anymore.

She concocted a potion made from exotic plant residue, and transformed into Emelia Forestbraid. Her skin went from ivory to tan, and her eyes from muddy brown to a golden honey. Her brown hair,which was dead, breathed once again and bloodied into a crimson. Her thin lips became full and her body lean. Trees nestled in her hair and bent to her whim, while vines hugged her sweetly and became her best friend. Plants love her, and come swiftly at her beckoning call. She has become her idol, but better in her opinion. She is real while Poison Ivy is just fiction.

But there is a trick. She must drink the vials of plant residue... otherwise she becomes normal once again.

Magic Botanist

Description Generator:
This girl reminds you of a cautious chipmunk. She has large yellow eyes that are like two gold coins. Her silky, straight, crimson hair is worn in a style that reminds you of the petals of a flower. She is very tall and has a lean build. Her skin is deeply-tanned. She has high cheekbones and full lips. Her wardrobe is unusual.

Awesome job on this piece - it's got so much detail! Must really have taken some effort and time. Congrats on the honorable mention with this =3

Why thank you! =3

Effort yes. Time... not so much. I was just introduced to seventh sanctum at the beginning of October, so I only had a few weeks to finish the basic sketch. Hopefully I will get the colored version of this up soon (once work gives me a break). Perhaps you could look out for the final version of it. Oh... and I hope you don't mind, but I will be watching your dA. You have some amazing stuff in your gallery. :love:

Honestly, I can't wait to see if with some color, it's a really well done image. I'll definitely keep an eye out for it! =3
