More elf girls, yay! This was another commission for the same client who commissioned the last two pieces (Farah and Mishalla). I love it when I get characters that are suuuuper fun to paint. It makes the work so enjoyable!

I really tried hard with the materials on this piece, trying to differentiate the soft cotton dress from the satin cloak and leather corset and leggings. I hope I succeeded.

I want to get some prints done of this, a limited edition of like 25 or something, I will update when I have them done! (My client was kind enough to be cool with me making prints of his character, yay!)

Wacom Cintiq and Photoshop CS3

EDIT: Fixed some errors that a few of you were kind enough to mention~

So I just realized that even if you click on the small version to show this at "full view" it still isn't FULL view! You have to click on DOWNLOAD to full view!? There are JPG ARTIFACTS ON THE SMALLER VERSIONS! How is that acceptable on a website that displays art? People have to jump through hoops just to view the artwork the way the artist intends... UGH! Come on DA... this really needs to be fixed. Please please listen. :(

so awesome
VeraPeneda Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Although I LOVE this work, I feel that her right leg (the one up) is a little too long...? Maybe it's just me... but it's what I immediatly saw...Or maybe it's because it seems it's a little appart from her body, I dunno. Maybe I'm wrong, but I thought I should say it...

Even so! I Love her outfit, face, hair and skin mostly! And I want some boots like those! :nod:
Aerona Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2010   Traditional Artist
I think my favorite part of this is her pants
ravercandy Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2010

You have to change the settings when you upload to show the larger image. Usually the default is 900x wide is full view. When you upload a deviation you need to change it to be something larger (i usually just check full-size)

I really like the details, must be painfull to draw. Good job!

wheni am not broke i need to ask you for a half elf girl to see what you can do with her :)
lovely indeed
Harmonic-Hunter Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2010  Student Digital Artist
I love the clothing details and the necklace! Everything looks so sleek and gorgeous.
Kakumei-Tifa Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2010
Her clothing is really beautiful!
FrictionX42 Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2010
Beautiful. I like how making the terrain around her just a touch out of focus helps to draw my eye to her. I can easily differentiate between the various types of fabric she is wearing. That's a very nice touch.
ThePrimith Featured By Owner May 31, 2010
How long does it take for you to do something like this?
TMJoy Featured By Owner May 30, 2010
One of my favorites so fra. Love the detail in the materials. And soooo want to wear that. Looks wicked! :D

RIght knee is abit to thick.
Makena Featured By Owner May 28, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Beautiful Art--Art like this DESERVES to be seen in full view. I agree completely. DA: You need to fix the viewing parameters. Not everyone has a luxury of always being able to DL something to see it properly. Give the artists some love!
Abbey-TerMeer Featured By Owner May 28, 2010
ho mai gohd
girl you really really really did a fantastic job on this. your details have gone up in the last few pictures, but this one really is a jaw dropper. from the lace in her muffler(?) to the wrinkles in her boots, to the peacock feather on her pants, the sparkles and lace around her skirt, the crosshatch in the corset... the pearls the curly hair the pendants and trincuts the ROCK. lol! BACKGROUNDS. not to mention the color choices are absolutely fantastic. EXTREMELY aethetic. very pleasing to look at. you're really improving... when i didn't think you could anymore cuz your already SO DAMN GOOD.

WickedPrince Featured By Owner May 28, 2010
She's very lovely. :)
w-a-v Featured By Owner May 28, 2010
Like her pose and colors! Beautiful painting!
CindysArt Featured By Owner May 28, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
Wow!! This is something special. Very beautiful done :clap:
Karrma Featured By Owner May 27, 2010  Student Filmographer
nice colors.Very good attention to details. The critique I have is that I think the leg may be too long. It just looks weird to me. The further leg look like it not meeting with the hip. The pose like a very uncomfortable. I tried get pose that way and it's very uncomfortable. All in all, it's visually stunning.
katiedesousa Featured By Owner May 28, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
I tried the pose and it was quite comfy, I think it requires a bit of flexibility, also it helps that women's center of gravity is lower, around the hips :) Thank you for the comment!
