I'm hoping there's enough here for you guys to figure it out - if not I'd be more than happy to divulge the symbolism. Any takers?

actually nexus I don't get it, I'll admit. I can't even tell what "sign" that's supposed to be. Maybe it's because I essentially ignore astrology. I'd welcome an explanation.

It was supposed to represent Virgo;
1) The M with the loopy around part is the astrological symbol for Virgo.
2) The zodiac wheel is engraved into the stone and she is lying on the Virgo triangle.
3) I couldn't find any stock of a woman who looked innocent, so I chose to make her a non-virgin anymore - hence the quote about why she was judged. Not being "the virgin" anymore and all.

It turned out a little more sinister than I was going for, but... Photoshop always gets its way :twisted:

Honestly I think these are some of the better entries we've had in a competition. If we can get a few more, we might succeed in catching all the zodiac signs!

23:59 on Thurs 8th your time is the last minute in which you can submit an entry here at Ozzu. So, you've still got some time left Evenhost.

I already know who I'm voting for, and it isn't me. I knew it the moment I saw it and it hasn't changed since. I love all these entries. Very imaginative and quality work all.

Thought it was neat to see what other people did with pretty much the same contest ;)
