Hope, youre like this picture too

Let's count what I like about this.
4. and especially the intricate umm.. shirt/blouse she has on.

I like the painterly feel to this also. Great job! :applause:

yep looks pretty good to me, i think her head is a bit too small for her hair and body though.

one great thing about elves, theyre always hot, if I was an elf I'd let myself go for a few years, not like it matters I would be immortal!

her backgroundleg is kind of hazy, as if it where far away.
but still, frontpage
very nice

Amazing drawing !
Could you please explain the steps and tools you used to create this picture (was it first a sketch with pencil ? etc.)


07 July 2004, 02:35 AM
Really great! I just love the contrast between sharp\hi-def and "blurred" areas.(not quite the right word, but hopefully you know what I mean)

GPX, you asked me about steps... well, i place two
i always begin to draw at once in computer, without pen and scans....
..and i dont like photoshop effects.. i use only painter7, round camelhair and digital airbrush more often :)

really good work !!!":thumbsup:

Nice colors, love the texture....keep um coming

07 July 2004, 02:24 AM
Beautiful!! :)


07 July 2004, 02:38 AM
She's lovely. I know what you mean about not liking to scan drawings in. I have a super, crappy scanner, and it allways ends up more work than it's worth. Cleaning things up, and getting the balance right, takes as long as just drawing.

07 July 2004, 01:50 PM
Great job!!:thumbsup:


07 July 2004, 01:37 AM
It's a great and fantastic illustration overall, and I love the loose, low texture look to it. There may be just a slight lack of contrast and shadows to it, though (would make it look more punchy/exciting).

But if you've achieved the look you were aiming for, than by all means ignore that criticism.

07 July 2004, 01:16 PM
Nice :)
Grats u for the front page plug :)

in your sofa
07 July 2004, 01:59 PM
just B E A utiful!!!

Way to go!!:)

07 July 2004, 02:26 PM
Its beutifull... well done lil girl

07 July 2004, 03:15 PM
I think it's a lovelly work, but IMHO her right leg is too soft and with much less detail than her left leg, specially when you keep the extra detail in her quilver.
Apart of that, love the concept.

07 July 2004, 03:18 PM
keep up the good work:thumbsup:

07 July 2004, 03:41 PM
thjis shiny cute elf is really well done!

07 July 2004, 03:56 PM

Super picture ... great !!

Retouch the right leg and it will be perfect :thumbsup:

The skirt and the head (including the hair) are my favourite elements

Great job again ... congratulations

07 July 2004, 12:07 AM
Good work :thumbsup:

07 July 2004, 12:57 AM
This is really great work. Envisions the enchantment of encountering an elf in it's element.

Awesome job with the translucent glow under the hair.

Just would like to see a tad more of the built off the shoulder distributed in the background right behind her or in her hair. It's just a little to alone

07 July 2004, 07:07 AM
NICE ! Love it !

07 July 2004, 08:31 AM
stunning. I love the mood, very neat background, and the clothes of the girl are very cool as well.

07 July 2004, 01:01 PM
Sorry, the picture is not working for me :( Maybe because I am running mozilla firefox.

Could someone please post a link to the image?

works fine with me, also firefox. Btw, the browser being the reason for not showing up of images is very rare...

07 July 2004, 03:14 PM
Picture is not working for me either. I think goldenbumblebee has reached his transfer limit wherever he is hosting the image. Can anyone host a mirror? There have been so many awesome comments I am dying to see the rest of this image!!

07 July 2004, 03:34 PM
works fine with me, also firefox. Btw, the browser being the reason for not showing up of images is very rare...Cool, it is showing now. Have you noticed that firefox displays nothing when an image cannot be downloaded. As opposed to IE which shows a red x?

07 July 2004, 07:18 PM
That's simply fantastic! I like it very much! :applause:

Mabye her right leg is bleached a bit to much... but the detail on her is amazing. Great!

:bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

07 July 2004, 11:00 PM
wow sexy :P

07 July 2004, 01:46 AM
awesome, i like the hair the most man....

07 July 2004, 04:26 AM
awsome stuff... :thumbsup:

07 July 2004, 06:30 AM
I like this piece, but your Vampiress seems much more detailed then this image for some reason; but I do like the colors and the character. The background seems a little rushed and underdeveloped to me though, but the character's costume is beautiful and very detailed. Lovely and first rate!!

07 July 2004, 01:55 PM
I'm glad to see the use of lead in lines (intentional or unintentional). The pull of them would be stronger with a darker/defined foreground - but as said earlier if a light airy feel is what you were after then don't change it. Besides that little nit-pick there - I think it's fantastic! Wow!


07 July 2004, 02:10 PM
Very beautiful elf.
Very good work.

07 July 2004, 03:20 PM
Wow! I always browse the forums, but never post, and this piece makes me want to applaud finally. Great work. The character, mood, and atmosphere reminds me of my work.... when I actually had time to do personal stuff that is. ;)


07 July 2004, 08:37 PM
I love it :)

The character design is Fantastic :):thumbsup:

07 July 2004, 07:10 AM

07 July 2004, 12:29 PM
I'm not seeing anything.....did you exceed your bandwidth?

07 July 2004, 01:17 PM

07 July 2004, 01:33 PM
nevermind....seems to be back up.

07 July 2004, 09:46 PM
very nice, has that fairytale feeling IMO...

07 July 2004, 05:52 PM
i can't see anything :banghead:
