This is my entry for the "Beautiful Creatures" contest. I've not had time to participate in a DA competition for a good long while, so I enjoyed sneaking this piece into my schedule. Thanks to a monstrous three-day headache, the painting isn't quite what I envisioned, but I don't want to run out of time to submit it.
Since Lena has spent her life wondering what she will become--a light or dark caster--I wondered if perhaps, after so long and so many worries, the actual answer might matter less than finally
having one. There are times and situations when even a negative outcome can be welcomed by virtue of the conclusion and the closure it offers. In this case, though the light and the stars signal which side has claimed her, Lena's expression is ultimately one of relief, of knowing at last... of release.
