The Cullens by Melanie Carter  
Title:The Cullens
Media : Painting
Artists: Melanie Carter
Character(s):Jasper, Alice, Emmett, Rosalie and Edward
Rating: K
Summary: An iconic image of the Cullen children with a twist.
Artists Notes:I love this section of the film, and I think this still captures all of them perfectly. Every expression is different and each one shows a character. I wanted to create this piece in a non-naturalistic way because of what it means to me. Twilight to me is one of the most complex books I've ever read in as far as the journey it takes you on as a reader. There's nothing simple about it- you read it at your own risk, as you might agree with me. So why should it always be shown in a way familiar to us? It's fantasy, it's otherworldly- it's magic. I chose the colour green from SM's own description of Forks and the tint from the film. (Clearer version when you click on the image)

I love how Jasper/Alice and Rosalie/Emmetts body language show their closeness. I really like the expression on Rosalie and Alice's face. The colour scheme is oddly fitting and its a beautiful piece. Thanks for sharing.

oddly fitting = in a good way. It's different to how it's normally shown, but it fits well and I like that you based in on the description of Forks.

I also agree regarding the complexity of the journey Twilight and the subsequent books take people one ;)

Wonderful used of colors. I adore the look on Emmerrs, Often we see him goofing around and barely serious, this one he looks thoughful. The little shy smile on Edward, BEAUTIFUL.

I like th shodow on Rosalie's leg under the table. So well detailed. Would love to see more of your work.

I like the colors - the windows and the floor. I like especially Rosalie and Edward. Love Edward's boots.

What a great use of colors and shadows. The floor is nicely done. I'm in love with Rosalie's face. Great work.
