Night (reworked) by rillani Night (reworked) by rillani
So, here's what I submitted to the Society of Illustrators student scholarship contest. I didn't get in. Oh well! There's still next year! :)

Here you can see the ones that did win: [link] . The vast majority are very deserving, so I'm not too sad.

This picture is a reworked version of [link] .

What do you call the animal she is riding?  I really like its design even though the antlers (or horns not sure) seem different in each picture.  I think my favorite design so far for the antlers are the semi-lyre shaped ones with small branches seen in the backgroundless picture.  Are they antlers or horns?  I think it would be cooler if they are horns.

I really like the design on her shoes.  They look like the wooden Japanese shoes with the front and rear platforms.  I always thought those were an interesting design.

Hi CheeseburgerTom!  Sorry I hadn't seen your comments earlier, I've been neglecting deviantart.

The animal is a heathstepper.  The word is from an old english kenning, hæūstapa.  I chose it because it refers to both wolves and stags.  The species can change the shape of their horn/antlers at will.

You're right about her shoes!  They're based on geta, the japanese shoe.

It seems like the art they were looking for, based on what was accepted was all very graphic, modern poster art. I hardly saw any painty illustrations. So that's a factor to consider too, I wouldn't feel bad about it, it just seems to me like they were looking for very specifically styled illustrations.

Anyway, I like how monochromatic this is, with just the subtle hints of colour. It feels like they're fleeing from something very dangerous.

Yep. I probably would have had a better chance with Spectrum, if only I had remembered the deadline. :shrug:
