This is my entry for Two themes contest: [link] I chose The Other Side of the Queen, category Advanced.
What I am trying to show trough this piece is not a warrior, violent, dark or evil queen that we see a lot at DA (I think that is some kind of cliche). My concept is that the queen is a weak and delicate woman. Along history, she had the duty to appear strong, determined and partner of the king. When in fact, this kind of women have been trading currency between the kingdoms,and they function was to ensure a male heir to the throne. The queens lived trapped in forced marriages, often without love. They could not decide on many aspects of their lives, and lived surrounded by all sorts of luxurious things, thanks to a people who suffered, sweated and bled for their nation. That is why piece depicts a queen in a cold landscape, almost hostile, and sad. I didn´t want to forget the luxuries of her life, and the sacrifice of her people, so I added the bleeding crown on the top of her head.
