Elf Queen of the forest by crayonmaniac Elf Queen of the forest by crayonmaniac
Artistic decision, not laziness, I made a portrait!

I had this opportunity today to be able to paint undisturbed so I finished her.

She is dedicated to my dearest Ellen :iconvaledhelven:

Tattoo by the brushes of Obsidian Dawn

thank you all for the favs, I love you all so much for it, the crayon CM

I like the immaculate pure skin of your lady. The float arm is martial, but the arm lifts itself also seductively and opens the view to the high breasts. The harmony of crown and ear decoration is perfect. And I love completely particularly the ornamentation Tattoo on that poor. You have a very beautiful brown green color mixture selected for your work.

Wow, you do like elves, too, huh? And I just about laughed myself silly when I saw your dedication to another artist here who stole my username - hahaha! Just kidding, but still quite a coincidence (long story). Anyway, great painting :)

Wow! This is amazing! Did you have any reference pics?
Ah...I'm OK at traditional art but I envy those who are great digital artists that can draw people...*sobs* I wanna be able to draw people!

thanks for the beautiful words of praise.
I used catrinel menghia as reference pic but lost the likeness has I cannot do likenesses.
But if you google her, you will fall rapidly on the pic that inspired this piece of work.
As for envying digital painters, well, it is a question of hard hard work, stubborness and obversation how the great ones do it! I intend one day to post my beginnings to people a good laugh, should you come upon these works, you would fall of your chair laughing but getting courage too that it is possible to grow in this, the only thing needed is time, time, time, the power of observation and the will to improve!

A WIP would be really good causei have no idea how you get the skin to blend properly - but I can't do that with pencil either!
I don't think it matters if it doesn't look like the person you're drawing unless...it's meant to look like the person you're drawing - it still looks so real as a person unlike anything I do - argh! My work is so flat!

thanks for the nice words, for the moment I only learn to paint so I never got a request or never received a commission!
When people in real life ask me sometimes for a portrait of them I can honnestly tell them that I am not good at likenesses?
