    A Wild Last-Minute Entry Appears!

    I've been working on this one here and there for a few months now, and it just so happens that it fits the theme of this contest perfectly!

    "To most people, she simply appears as a beautiful young businesswoman. But things are not what they appear to be....for beneath her false, 'human' beauty lies her true, inhuman form: that of a hideous old witch. She uses her 'human' beauty to attract the attention of unsuspecting young men, imprisoning them in her mansion's wine cellar when they least expect it. For it is the blood of her weakened victims that has maintained her false beauty throughout the years....and the time has come for her 'beauty' to be restored once more...."

    Title: Beauty IS Only Skin-Deep...
    Programs Used: DAZ Studio 4, Postwork in Photoshop
