My entry for :iconnexttopmonster:!

Being a fan of America's Next Top Model (shut up, it's a good show) Naturally I had to get in this! referenced from an actual contestent. a pose that says "fierce!" that speaks Karen

The object of the contest is to improve artistically and try things outside your comfort zone. so Aside from shading this I also went with colored line art! I don't know if it fits my style, but it's fun to do new things none the less!

I know this is a lot of Black for Karen to wear, but the prompts for entering was Black outfit with star accent, SO I hope I did it justice!

Here's my entry! wish me luck! I'm going to need it. the competition is outrageous!


:bulletblack: Name: Karen Phemus

:bulletblack: What type of personality do you have?: I am a strong, confident ghoul, I never take no for an answer and I know how to get what I want! You just have to want it bad enough. Sometimes I'm not taken very seriously because of the way I dress but Scene fashion is all the rage, people just get nervous around perfection I guess. Some may write me off as a little...cold and calculating, a word that rhymes with "Witch" has been thrown around. But I don't think a ghoul should be punished for doing what she wants.

:bulletblack: Why do you want to be The Next Top Monster?: I want to be the next top monster because I feel like little ghouls aren't standing up for themselves! I feel like there is no shame in being who you want to be. You're fate is in your claws you just need to reach out- and take it!

:bulletblack: Would you like to participate in the "Comeback Call" should another ghoul drops out? It will grant you a second chance in the event someone drops out in the future.: Not like I would ever need a second chance. But I supposed stranger things have happened. and in the unlikely event that I do require a come back I am more than happy to make myself available.

Oh wow! Karen looks so beautiful here! I love her posing and all of the sparkles! I have been staring at this for a while trying to come up with a proper compliment, but this is the best I could come up with! ^^;

But I really love this. Good luck in the contest. I think you have a huge chance at winning! :w00t:

While black really isn't Karen's color I'll admit, she definitely rocks it! And as always, she looks gorgeous with pink animal print, can't ever go wrong there <3 I really love the pose and attitude in the picture, it's so Karen it hurts! (in a good way.)

Ghoulfriend your pose has so much attitude and your outfit has so much energy! I love love love the way you are making such wonderful eye contact here and the lighting really shows off the glitter and stars on your outfit. Also you actually made leopard print work with you really well in this, normally I would shudder at the thought of leopard print but you made it look amazing.

Your eye is simply stunning here! I love how you seem to be gazing at me through this photo of yours. The pose here is brilliant with what is going on with your facial expression.

The way you’ve found the light is amazing here, ghoul! It really does wonders especially with the outfit you are wearing. It’s so dazzling!

I love whoever designed your outfit! Did you put this together by yourself? If yes I think I might have to get you to design my next panel outfit.

Everything... from head to toe is stunning. You rocked this one. :heart:

I can’t tell you how incredibly stunning you are here! Your outfit has me completely shell-shocked. There is SO much going on here...

The color combination in relation with the lighting is positively mind-numbing. You are truly one of those ghouls who knows how to step into the light and make the whole shoot work for you.

The attitude that you’re showing off through your body and the look in your eye? This.. is fierce. And I love it. Oh! And let’s not mention the fact that you’re doing nothing but showing off this dazzling outfit? Oh my ghoul.. This pose is entirely too great.

I love this photo. Well done here!

Great pose! You picked it very well, it fits Karen perfectly! As much as I find her to be a .... witch too (haha) I think she has a good chance at winning!

But I'm worried that would inflate her ego even more! How will Ripper suffer a Top Monster Karen? Haha

Great work! I love her outfit :D

I love everything about this Candy. The colored lineart, the adorable suspenders and the sheer overskirt. Not to mention the sparkles. I love me some glitter @v@

I actually really like the colored lineart here, then again I'm a fan of using that method myself. XD It makes your art more soft somehow and it all smoothly kinda flows together.

It's almost jarring to see Karen in so few colors, but she still looks fantastic and the outfit is still very much her. I love that you even put stars in her eyes, it's a cute little detail.
