Contest description and guidelines:

Voodoo Lady Contest on Photoshopnation.com sponsored by Shannon Lea Egan, later described as “the sponsor”

The contest goal is to produce a tattoo design for the sponsor, the theme of the final image must adhere to the following guidelines:

  • It has to depict a female character, specifically a voodoo witch/lady with a Mexican “day of the dead” look to her, in detail, the mouth element of the day of the dead skull face paint must be included (the skull's teeth drawn on the lips and the extended lip line on the cheeks), other elements are optional (eye sockets, nose socket, floral decorations)
  • Other elements of the voodoo mythology can be included
  • Sugar skulls may be included
  • The style of the tattoo has to fall into the “New school” category
  • It has to include tentacles in the design, not necessarily coming out of the figure, it's your choice how to incorporate this element. It is an homage to Ween's The Mollusk album, and specifically the song “Mutilated Lips”. “Voodoo Lady” by Ween is also an inspiration.
  • There are no preferences of pose or composition, as long as it is flattering
  • The depicted lady should have a sexy/pretty look but with a dark undertone
  • Take the phrase "lady in the streets but a freak in the bed" as a reference when creating your art
  • Some nudity & horror is allowed, but be tasteful
  • Any art technique is allowed, but keep in mind that should have a more illustrative look, rather than a photographic look. The image should also not look like a cartoon.
  • Feel free to use your creativity and knowledge to create a stunning, unique image
  • Size of the tattoo in real life has to be between 6 and 9 inches wide/tall
  • Failing to follow these guidelines might result in your entry(s) being disqualified.
