Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved. - Helen Keller

Elf (Updated)



This is a new picture I drew today. I don't think I'm finished with it yet, I believe I will eventually add colour.



Here she is coloured, though I still have a lot of work to do. I'm still not quite satisfied with the outcome. The hair has MUCH left to be desired (I suck at colouring hair) as well as the ear and neck. I'm fairly happy with the face...for now. Most of this was done in Photo Shop.

She is a Dark Elf and her name is Aliandrias and she is still considered a mere elfling at the age of 130, her powers still developing.

I am still forming a story in my mind for her. If anyone has any story Ideas for her, please feel free to share! :)

The way that you handled the delicate portions...the nose, jawline, hairline. Really beautiful. Add color or don't, I think it's very good.

Soooo scanner jealous! Nootch.

You've really brought her eyes out with the shadowing. It's a darker look, less innocent, less naive. I like it. She maintains her facial placidity, but has some depth.

Story ideas...story ideas...hmm...I'll get back to you on that one, but you're such a great writer, you don't need my input.

Peace. Grin.
