Character of the Week #321
Mary Worth - Bloody Mary
Deadline - Sunday, March 24 10PM GMT
She was a beautiful woman with a kind heart. Always helping others and admired by everyone from afar. One day she had a horrible accident, which disfigured her face. She was told to never look into a mirror, for they thought she would succumb to insanity. One night, she could no longer fight the curiosity and went into the bathroom to look. As she looked at herself in the mirror, the horrifying reflection made her break down in tears. Her sadness and anger was so great that she walked into the mirror, like a portal, to find the beautiful reflection she once had. It is said that if you call for her three times into a mirror, she will appear and attack you, to ensure that no one will ever come seeking to see her.
This week, design Mary Worth, and since next Sunday is St. Patrick's day, a requirement is to include the color GREEN into your design.
- Must be female.
- Must be Human.
- No Nudes.
- Can be any time period.
- Disfiguration is not limited to the face, but must be part of the design.
- GREEN Must be part of your color palette!
- Finals must be posted in the finals thread before the deadline
- Final post must include the CHoW number and the artists username at the bottom of the image
- At least 3/4 of the character must be visible
- Sketches or rushed artwork will not be accepted into the poll
- At least two wips posted with your final in the finals thread
- Background is optional
- Have fun!
Additional Notice: A couple things I want to bring up..
- No photograph paint overs...ever... never ever ever never...for ChoW. Must be 100% original work.
- FOLLOW the brief. I think you all have been here long enough for me to truly enforce this. Last topic with the centaur, a majority of people did NOT include the tribe markings on both the axe and armor. From now on, if there is anything missing from your final submission, be it the title, your name, 2 WIPS, ChoW # or a missing requirement, it will not be in the poll. So PLEASE make sure you check and DOUBLE check before submitting.
Thanks guys, and good luck this week!

Great topic, some really strong ideas and a good mix of genres - Zombi like your graphic styling and Niam your Preraphaelite style is interesting to as is Deds lighting . Looking forward to seeing then final pieces Good luck all
Pastasauce thanks for the feed back – ive played with the foreshortening but have added a slight blur to suggest movement instead of any major changes.
Does the image qualify for the ¾ rule or will I need to extend it ?
Really enjoyed it this week.
Great entries everyone!
Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will.
In a bad mood? Take it out on my sketchbook! All constructive critique welcome!

Thanks Havok for a sweet challenge and allowing us two whole weeks to do it!
Also huge thanks to Something_Abysmal, z0mbi, lilybet and Ninsta this week for helping me so much with anatomy, composition and colour.
Mary Worth final. Looking forward to next challenge!
Here's my version of Bloody Mary. I went for the moment of transition.
On this new server I've been having a nightmare of a time trying to upload images. Here's hoping this uploads.
I wanted to show the seduction of the beauty contrasted with the horror of reality
The most beautiful thing we can experience is the
mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all
science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who
can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe,
is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.
here's my entry !
Closed! Good job guys. I will get the next topic up in a bit.
*EDIT* RE-opened for another hour. Didn't know time in GMT stays the same, where mine doesn't...

Nope....>.< Deadline is always at 10PM GMT at the earliest. I let it go a few minutes past just in case.
Really awesome final though, Homerid.
hmm....Does GMT not have the daylights savings? Interesting..... You are correct. I have always just counted 5 hours ahead of my time to be 10PM. shit... I cant edit the poll either. I supposed I can open a new poll.
Just read that GMT does NOT change, it is an absolute time. That's what I get for assuming! OK, So I will allow entries until 10:15PM for real this time!!!
Ok, they are fudging with the forum again so it's running super slow. Going to Officially close this up now. I will put a new thread up for voting. thanks guys!
