Beautiful Creatures Light or Dark-The Cataclyst by DarkMousysMinion Beautiful Creatures Light or Dark-The Cataclyst by DarkMousysMinion
A note to everyone: PLEASE FULLVIEW! Also, I hope you do not take offense to the nature of this piece. It's supposed to be symbolic.

"Macon grabbed Lena by both arms...'If you agree to this, you won’t feel remorse, because you won’t be yourself. The person you are now will be dead...you won’t  remember your feelings for Ethan. Within a few months, your heart will be so Dark, he won’t mean anything to you. The Claiming has an incredibly powerful effect on a Natural. You may even kill him by your own hand—you will be capable of that kind of evil.'"

I'm actually a loving fan of the Beautiful Creatures Series and have read the novels. Though I know the outcome in the original story (I'm not sure if the movie divurges or not), I tried my hand at depicting her as a cataclyst, should she turn dark on her claiming moon.

Originally I was going to submit a light version too but this style of painting takes a LONG TIME. Both entries would have had Ethan despite Lena being the main character depicted. I feel like her claiming has to involve Ethan.

Without Ethan, there is no Lena. Without Lena, there is no Ethan.

Thank you and I hope you like it.

AN UPDATE ON THE CONTEST: IT APPEARS I DID NOT MAKE IT TO THE SEMI-FINALS. KIND OF WISH I HAD CHOSEN A DIFFERENT SUBJECT BUT...OH WELL.

This picture; it makes me sad. I love it; the detail is perfect and the body shapes and everything, but...it makes me want to cry. I love Ethan/Lena and I love how the story ended but I do wish they had, like, an alternate ending or something. You know? I still am in love with the art, though.


Sixteen moons, sixteen years,
taste of blood, and mortal fears,
dark will awaken and light won't follow,
eyes will close and hearts become hollow

^^ I had to add that. ^.^

Freakin' awesome, it look like you combined Lena with Sarafine together as in she's possessing her or something. Again, freakin' awesome!!!
