Free Style Art Contest! Win 400 points

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 4, 2013, 4:02 AM
Dead Line: {extended} February 12th
Hey boys and girls and everything in between! How have you been? I've been quite well myself :iconsebastianplz:
CONCEPT ART (since it won in my poll) Draw what the following phrase makes you imagine.


I am a sin; cold, hot, cast away, and embraced. I am bright against your eyes, dark against your mouth, steaming against your soul.


Yes, just came up with that on the spot… There's plenty to work with in there. I can think of a thousand ways to draw from that ^_^ So I'm sure you guys will too. This is open to any interpretation or style, so go crazy! I obviously am a little more into anime, but don't let that stop you! You can go light or dark in this btw.

RULES
1. No bases!! Please, even if you feel you stink at anatomy, try to do it on your own.
2. Nothing against DA rules, so no porn or hentai, though I'm totally okay with a lil sexual tension or pervertedness lol.
3. The art has to be made FOR this contest. Submitted after the start of it.
4. Watch me… This way you'll be notified of any changes that I make to this journal. You can un-watch me when it ends if that pleases you.

JUDGING
1.) Effort: 5/5
2.) Goes with the theme: 5/5
3.) Creativity: 10/10
Obviously, this is a concept art contest and so I'm leaving a large margin for many different styles and interpretations. Creativity will play the largest role, so please keep that in mind ^_^

His dark blue eyes so dark that only the faintest hint of blue showed through them from time to time when the light hit them. They were deep eyes, revealing the weight of time and depth of his soul in the way that the ocean does at the beach. Only a tempting hint of what really lay beyond and beneath... His long black hair fell in gentle waves about his face, falling about his shoulders gently looking far softer than it surely had a right to be. His skin looking paler for that deep onyx hair. There was something almost delicate about how he was built, but powerful as well. Only she could really look at him and think of words like delicate.
They'd sat like this for hours her waiting for him to find the words to explain. For so long there had been an understanding between them. Her knowing without words of the dark past that lay behind him like a weight. What she knew of it enough for her to realize tha

Firstly, can I enter more than one piece, and second, did you get the link/message which I put up about the first?

Hey, I wrote a little something for your contest. [link] It's an OC of mine having a long overdue confession. It may not be perfect for your prose, but was inspired by it. Certainly he wouldn't have confessed without the prodding. Having said that, it can not help but be dark, and isn't as romantic as your concept suggested. I hope that is okay since it's suppose to be inspiration! Also, I hope it's okay that it's something I wrote rather than a drawing. Goodness knows I'm better at writing than drawing!
