Rosemary- UPDATED by JesseJentzen Rosemary- UPDATED by JesseJentzen
"Bent like the branches of a tree
broken like the pieces of my heart
cracked like the seventeenth moon
shattered like the glass in the window
the day we met" -

one of my favorite quotes from the series- ^_^ I own all the books and you could say Im a little obsessed.. :P :)

as a side note I try to learn something new with every piece I do and this one I wanted try out fire- it was a pain staking process but worth it :P

Spent way to long on this piece and idk if I could ever put it down- i had the same problem with the books

anyways I put alot of symbolism and elements from the entire series throughout the piece and I provided brief (non book spoiling) 

I hope you enjoy my piece inspired by the books :)

Yeah I'm not the one to have vivid pictures going through my head when reading a book. Have you ever heard of The Son of Neptune? I heard that one was a good book, told by my bookworm cousin.

This piece is stunning and the only thing that caught my eye as a disqualifying component is her right hand.
It looks bent at an angle that I can't figure out. I wish you could change that and re submit it, as you would be going
to California. Your color choices are simply amazing.

I really hope the judges didn't disqualify me based on a misunderstood proportion, because if so, I don't know how half the finalists weren't held to that same standard. :) Im glad you like it tho :)

You could easily sell prints of this artwork. I think the hand was just distracting from the
angle not proportion. Try doing the pose in front of a mirror with your own hand, maybe it was a lighting
issue, but it seemed like the thumb was on the wrong side or something.
Even with the right hand distraction, your art should have been in the semi finals.
Incredible colors and her eyes showed the feeling of heartache, many others didn't show a lot of feeling.

Thank you :) <3 and I think it was a lighting issue, cuz I used my own hand as a reference for this piece, but it is something I will definitely fix when the contest is over :P and thank you for your comments/thoughts they really do make my day when someone takes time on their comments <3 I guess all I can do is hope the judges make a switch out and I can land in the semis :P

This might be the most beautiful painting I've ever seen. The colors are gorgeous, you're extremely talented. Lena looks amazing; I love the dress and the flowers in her hair. The background and bird are stunning. This is simply breathtaking. :)

Ya idk i figured since the authors posted it on their blogs and facebook pages and stuff I would at least make semi finals, but I guess the authors don't pick the 25 semi finalists :/
