Great news!

A few days ago, when I logged into my deviantart account, I was flooded with messages, all of them containing the same word: 'congratulations'. You must be wondering why. :)

Well, I found a photomanipulating contest called Kings & Queens Contest by The-Imaginarium. There were three categories, and the participants could choose from a list of kings and queens. When I was a child, I was obsessed with Egyptian culture and fortunately there's still something left of it. This is why I went for the Queen of Egypt. The theme got me inspired, and suddenly the picture of what I would create came to my mind. This is when the work began. :D

I looked at lots of references on Egyptian scenery, architecture, fashion, makeup, jewelry, etc. with the help of Google and my old books. I went through hundreds of stock photos, then I spent long hours and days photomanipulating. There were times when I got disappointed or desperate, but in the end, all that suffering paid off. I was quite satisfied with the result.

However, I did not think I would stand a chance. I know I may be too pessimistic, but all the entries were very amazing, creative and detailed. (I bet the judges had a hard time deciding). Please don't forget to check out all the other winners' and participants' works as well (just click on the link of the contest above). Anyway, I think it was great fun and experience, and I'm looking forward to the next one! :)

Last but not least, I want to say a huge 'thank you' to the creators of this contest, the judges, and all the amazing people offering the prizes - features, points, llamas, etc. You have no idea how happy, thankful and honored I feel. :heart: :heart: :heart:

PS. I've still got lots of messages to read and answer. I try to reply to everyone, but if I forget about anybody, please forgive me. It's not because I don't appreciate your comments and compliments.

Have a very nice weekend! :heart:
xoxo Kristy
