iElf by katiedesousa iElf by katiedesousa
I wonder what she’s listening to? :)

This started as just a practice thing, exercise in anatomy, and i haven't touched painter in a while so i wanted to reacquaint myself with it. i like the creamy painty brushes i have in painter~ anyways, i couldn't really leave it alone and kept touching it up, i don't want to take it any further though, i like the brushstrokes and i don't really want to smooth them out.. this ended up being 50% in photoshop and 50% in painter. i'm happy with her legs... not so much her face though. oh well!

[EDIT]
Ok. I'm kind of disappointed that I actually have to write this in the description, if you don't like iPods please don't tell me, I really don't care. I'm a caring person too, say if you told me you hated Steve Jobs because he burned down your house or something, fine, I'd understand you hating apple products then. Hating a music player itself though? I really... don't even understand the point of that. I don't see how an iPod, being an inanimate object, could possibly do something do deserve someone's hate. Besides, I have an iPod and it's lovely.

She's gorgeous and I'm not usually over zealous for elven women but she's an exception. I like the wings floating around her too, nice added touch.

Omg I don't know why anyone would criticize any part of it. As if Her Legs Should be Smoother? like Wtf? Can't she just have her body like the way it is? Like if an Elf should be stereotypically Skinny? FU! Btw. Her Face iElf, she just got out of a party, or taking a break from a long day. She is the way she is.

I love it...she looks so sad. My only critique would be her left foot...it might technically be able to bend that way, but it doesn't fit with the serenity of the pose. Otherwise, beautiful, and a great concept.

looks great, but her shoulder looks off, considering her position it should be a little higher and her shoulders should be a little wider, her thighs look a little short too.

Nice painting skill though!
