The Legolas costume was requested, for this piece. I know I probably won't get much, if any C&C feedback for this, due to lack of interest, so I'll just say I think her arm is a little too thin and long. This piece is also lacking in style. Oh well. I'll keep trying.

The muscles on her left leg look wrong, almost like they are folding onto themselves or something....maybe you meant them to look like they are covered with cloth?. Besides that, I think its a really great sketch. I like the face and pose you put her in.
:beer:

Thanks, wildsheepchase. Yeah, what you're seeing up in the leg is supposed to be folds in the cloth. I should've probably made the folds a little smaller, in that area, as it's too roomy up there, but too tight around the knees. the fact that you thought they were muscles is indication to me that I made yet another mistake on this drawing. I made more than a few mistakes, with this one. Thanks for the feedback, I appreciate it. :)

Thanks, Hellwolve. I can't do anything else to the drawing, itself, because I've already sent it off to the person I drew it for... but I did scan it at a high resolution, and I'm thinkin' about painting it in Painter. I'll correct as many mistakes that I made, as I can when I do that.

Sounds like an plan to me. And while I am at it, here are some sugestions and critiques:

-If you're planning on making her a real thief, add an hood.

-Her left foot seems to be in ankward possition.

-The same for her left wrist.

-I don't know how long her bow and quiver are, but IMHO, they are too short. I think there should be piece visible at the other side of her back.

Okay, that was it, except for a comment on my comments; I'm no expert ;)

Maybe do the old flip horizontaly trick, and catch some of the issues. She has a great expression, you can see she is a take no *@#$ kinda elf. Truthfully though, if you are so upset with how she came out, you may want to take a few cracks at a fresh work with the pencil.

hellwolve: as far as adding a hood, that probably won't happen. I drew this specific to a description that someone gave me of their D&D elf character.. that, plus I'm too lazy to add a hood. :p I agree on the foot and hand, though... I think the hand on the left (her right) needs to be a bit smaller, too. Those I can fix. The bow and quiver may be something I'll mess with. I considered the possibility of having the other end extend out on the other side, but then I also considered the possibility that they could be pointing back in space.... if that makes sense. I used reference photos of legolas wearing his bow and this was the case. Thanks for the suggestions.

Snowfly: Thanks, I will! :bounce:

dtrimble: I did that and it did help me catch a few mistakes that weren't readily apparent. I'm not as upset with the sketch as I probably let on, although I do need to get alot better with my drawing. I'm nowhere near the level I'd like to be. Just need to keep practicing. I probably won't draw this character again, unless the girl I drew it for wants me to draw her another one... and she was pretty happy with this one, when I showed it to her, yesterday. ;) Thanks.

You're welcome.

I'm already happy my comments are being took serious ;)
