Monster High - Ebony Smith by E-raserhead Monster High - Ebony Smith by E-raserhead
Made with deviantART muro

--

Name: Ebony Smith
Parent: The Blacksmith
Age: 17
Killer Style: I make my own style! I forge it out of steel, iron, metal scraps, anything I can find, and I always look downright awesome!
Freaky Flaw: Although I'm a skilled blacksmith, I'm not much good at anything else, especially working with fabric. So if you're looking for something lightweight or flowy.... you've got the wrong girl.
Favourite Colour: Steel grey
Favourite Food: Char-grilled vegetables!
Biggest Pet Peeve: Anything that's weak and girly... I'm much too tough for things like that.
Favourite Activity: Smithing! I could do it all day long.
Pet: I saw all the other girls had pets but I couldn't afford one... so I decided to forge something of my own! She's a beautiful little roach I made from scrap metal I found around the junkyard. Her name is Rusty!
Favourite School Subject: Metalwork, of course!
Least Favourite School Subject: Home Ick... especially sewing... as I said, fabrics are not my forte.

So this is my second submission for the contest. I had a lot of fun with it! I know it's not the best, but I'm just starting out with digital art and I gave it my all! Plus as we all know well, DAmuro is not the best to work with... especially when you're using a mouse! My hand hurts so much now, haha!

Thanks to everyone who encouraged me to make another entry, by the way. In fact, I think I'm going to start working on one more since this was so much fun :)

Important: Since there have been several discrepancies regarding whether or not this design should be allowed in the competition because she's not really based on a monster, and since I can't figure out how to edit the description (it won't let me resubmit into the contest section) I'll post her back story here.

Ebony Smith is the daughter of the blacksmith. Her father forged her out of scrap metal and endowed his abilities upon her. Her mother painted her to make her appear beautiful. She's not just a redhead, her hair is actually flaming! She is far from human.

I hope this clears things up for anyone who is doubtful.

I think you would have less headache and trouble, if you instead called her an automaton or copper-bot or something. This way people can clearly see she is mechanical and not made of flesh.

When you say she is the daughter of the Blacksmith, people just automatically think that she is his human daughter... you could also call her the "Creation" of the blacksmith.

Just a suggestion to ease the headache.

Yer the chances were odd! But I'm so happy for you! I think you deserved being in the semi finals! Your monster is so detailed and well executed! Good luck in the final 3! I'll be cheering on literally! I've never been so involved with a contest before ~lol xD Good luck once again

Awww thank you so much you're too kind! I've never been so involved either, but I felt like this one had more of a community aspect because it's Australian based and it didn't really require ridiculous amounts of talent to enter like the other contests since it involved using a base and stuff :)

Hahaha, it's quite amazing. :3 especially since you said you weren't used to Muro! I really hope you win. x3 If not for your awesome skill, then for the steampunkish awesomeness! Kids would possibly be falling in love with steampunk~! @w@ (you have no idea how hard it is to explain steampunk to other adults let alone children... or to show them,since I had usually confused them too much to listen to me let alone look at some of the artwork or fashion lol)
