    Description

    The blinding process is performed by skilled surgeons wherein the eyes are removed and the orbits are hermetically sealed with a highly acidic resin from a local variety of carnivorous plant. In ancient times, the procedure was performed with a heated ceremonial blade in order to cauterise the wound - a very painful ordeal that remains a cultural stigma to this day, and is most commonly the basis for the stereotype that the Seren possess a "barbaric" culture.

    Naturally, females of her species do not possess very large ornamental horns - this trait is genetically reserved for males. However, because of her regal status, her own female horns have been sculpted to reflect her status as a ruler. The arch signifies stability, wisdom, and the cyclical nature of life on Seren. The sculpting is an uncomfortable, but non-painful process.

    Her gown is made from various plates of leathery, chitinous shells of the local mega-insects on her continent, as well as the plumes from the offspring of giant coastal sea-birds. The ordeal of collecting these feathers from the giant, almost man-sized chicks requires not only courage, but deftness and agility, as the most common roost for the giant birds is on sea stacks that rise nearly half a kilometre above the waves.
    ility, as the most common roost for the giant birds is on sea stacks that rise nearly half a kilometre above sea level.

    Seren CHOW

    My envisioned Seren Queen inhabits a world that highly values nature and beauty, it is the Queen's responsibility to interpret mother nature's voice and steer the people in the right direction, thereby "seeing the truth." However she is a tragic figure in that for her to gain this percieved power she must lose her physical eyes in order to gain her "true vision." This is my first CHOW entry and it was a lot of fun to do. Look forward to seeing other's interpretations.

    Time to post the finals... This has been a super useful round to me, thanks all! =D

    Description:
    The idea behind this is that she has been blinded by being forced to stare into the same sun that she is about to celebrate. The yellow in her dress represents the sunrays that will descend upon Seren in the summer, bringing warmth and joy to the planet. All her headdresses, in this case a form of turban, are overlaid with a netting of pearls to represent the ability to see so much more (represented by a hundred eyes) by being blinded. Her shoes have heels, but no soles in the area of the ball of her feet and her toes, so she can feel what the ground is like and with that, stay on the right path throughout the palace or pinpoint where she is. She walks around, trying to be regal but sometimes stumbling in the process.

    There are so many great drawings!

    It's so difficult to know when to stop but my back hurts and I'm done.

    I wanted to continue, but I give it ^ ^


    The Queen of the Orochi
    The Orochi spirit accompanies all the queens who rose to the throne for their entire lives.
    On the death of a queen, the Orochi watches over his body, until a young girl comes to you.
    The Orochi attack her and eats her eyes, making her the new queen, while the eyes of all are the queens of history to cover his body.

    • Follow the brief!

    Since we now have Illustration of the Week, we are going to be more strict regarding the rules of CHoW. As Rinibee wrote (see above) we now require a character sheet including the character design (without the illustrative stuff in it) and it means YOU NEED TO DO ONE IN ORDER TO GET INTO THE POLL. And i do not mean that you cant do an illustration of the character as well, but if you do you have to include the character sheet. I can not be any more strict about this but ill let this time be just a warning, next time i will disqualify any entries without the character sheet! This is a Character Of the Week after all, and its all about CHARACTER DESIGN and we aim to keep it just that. Read the rules, remember them and have fun! Over and out!

    Heh, So not done at all - and now I feel even more guilty/lazy for thinking that the WIPS would do instead of a proper character sheet.-
