hi everyone,.. it's been long time no draw for me. :) this image is just about as complete as i'll probably take it.

I am aware that the pose is bland, and it can use a background, but this drawing was really for me to get back into drawing and to test out a new brush in painter 8. i'd like to hear any feedback or comments, but i'm most interested in hearing feedback about the rendering.

drawn and colored in painter 8 with the trusty graphire. :)

thanks for looking.

very nice, though i think it might look just a bit better with darker cloth, more drab green... and sort of a confetti paper background

Very cute elf :D
very nice work
her lips and nose are very nice :D
there is only one thing the line downward starting under her breast in the middle of her body s doesn't exist when looking on a real female body.

I really (really really) like the style you gave to her face!! Very personnal style! I also like the way you've painted her hair!! :thumbsup:

it's beautiful! especially the face, i like it a lot! :thumbsup:
but personally i found the lower body looks a little bit weird. maybe it's bc of the legs. the upper body is perfect!
lookin forward to see the finished piece

btw, i am also from vancouver!

The style of the elf is rare, looking at the the ears. I like her clothing, it looks very original.

Wonderful image! I like the way you painted the hair and the dress.

I hate elves and all their cliched fantasy brethren, but this is a really nice pic. Nice face, and eyes.
you should post this in the hosted 2d gallery - i only found this image by mistake!

Wow, this is what artwork is about. I used to be into the whole fantast thing, but moved on to the futuristic stuff after getting into Sci-Fi.

The artwork really does show the shy side that elves are portrayed to have. The picture is great and all, but i think with a coloured foresty background, the pic would shine. Unless, of course, ur intention is to promote the presence of the elf in the pic.
