An illustration of the May Queen with her consort the Green Man and their fiery spring procession for Beltane.

Beautiful work - I love the lighting on the bottom half (particularly on the horned figure) and the detailing on the headdress is exquisite.
Reminds me of the Beltane rites in Mists of Avalon; raw, untamed and wild.
I'm sort of amazed by this. The way you've balanced so many elements and colors, and that level of detail, is really impressive. And none of it takes away from the May Queen's face--she looks absolutely regal. Good luck in the competition!
Thank you! I had an overall initial idea that really focused very much on the face and played with it until it worked. It was time constrained though, so I may develop it a bit more and perhaps even do a companion piece
