Darwela, Queen of Elves by crayonmaniac Darwela, Queen of Elves by crayonmaniac
Of my big challenge for my two elfes , the girl Darwela is already painted, I promised you all progress reports, so here she is

I have based the gown, drawn from scratch from a costume catalogue dress but deviated enormously from it to fit her pose.
Lots of copy paste in the peals and the center cloth of her dress. The folds of the sleeves were hard to paint for me but I learned a lot.

I have to thank my dear friends :icontwobadgirlz: for the girl's name, his name is still not found.

I want to dedicate this little preview to my friend Darrin :iconpara451911: who gives me so much support all the time and who was the first to suggest he wanted to see this girl to her feet down, at first I thought he was crazy to ask this, but finally I am just as crazy to paint it and omg did I enjoy myself, thanks sweetie

The final painting, with him and her and background will be dedicated to all my fine friends who responded to the "madness" journal. Next week I tackle my elf lord, that will not be so easy

...this is gorgous work...:iconwowplz::clap::love:!the face is perfect,the expression wonderful,soft and tender,I like the little frecles arround her nose,the hair ,the fine detailed work on all her jewels,the key...the texture of her dress,the belt ,the lace decoration,everything is perfect here,makes me dreaming!:iconiamimmortalbeloved:
The only thing I would have to say,eventually,is about her breast.For sure,she is having big breasts(full -bosomed is the right word?:iconthinkingplz:,and certainly the dream of many men:giggle:but,they are seeming a bit too" round "to me,they way ,maybe,they are "compressed"like they did in the "old times"lol,but to my opinion,would need a bot more shadowing ,especially in the middle of the 2 breasts touching each other,as well as at the 2 extremities on each side near the arms...just a tiny little bit more shadowing!:iconbouqetplz:
Other than that,as I mentioned: perfect!:clap:

finally i have decided to accent the breast in the brocade part anyway, thanks it looks better,
yes she has huge boobs (i don't lol) but i had to repaint her from the portrait who had an ample bossom too, so i was obliged to follow the initial outline, well next time I think i am going to paint smaller breasts lol

...I have nothing agianst her generous breasts(I don't have,myself,neither:giggle:,I only suggested the shadowing differently,which wouldn't take anything away from the volume;)..but,YOU are the artist here,it's YOUR creation,I understand perfectly!:iconblowkiss:

thank you, flori, i appreciate it immensely and though i changed my elf lord entire lol I am not going to tamper with her breasts anymore, the rigid brocade of the center piece of her dress is not moulding her body too much
i would like you always to tell me these things, if I can change them i will, with the male face you were so right,he looks so much better now, darwela i am not going to touch now, i will see what it gives with the entire picture done
but really I thank you, critique for me is a sign of friendship, i do not understand why some people cannot take it, we artists we are so with our noses up our work that some things escape us, that is why i rely on DA and my special friends to get better
getting better is my ambition flo, so thanks hon
