Mage Elf - completed 12-21-03 by Skyejcb Mage Elf - completed 12-21-03 by Skyejcb
The Mage Elf...complete with Mage Elf habitat.

Someone suggested that she looks as though she has a story behind her - history, if you will. Would anyone like to volunteer to write either poetry or prose to support this character?

I must say I LOVE your style. :) You have a way with color that's eye-catching, yet it 's not overpowering to the character. Wonderful expression - she has such a look of determination. The background is absolutely perfect.

:-) Thanks! She is a rather determined little thing, isn't she?

Simply great! And the background adds a lot too. And the *red* hair? ... a good choice ;) :laughing:

I actually *did* have red in mind for her hair before our conversation yesterday. ;-)

You do the lovelest coloring! The shading and tone of her arms is fantastic! The colors you chose go well with her kick-butt personalitly, and I still love the way you drew her face, so cute, but with attiude! :) The staff is awesome, and the little twist and curve in the wood at the bottom is very clever.

Mmmm.... such a pretty picture! The background is awesome, it frames and supports the character, but doesn't take away from her. Kudos!

And Merry Chirstmas! ^_^ :xmas:

Thanks! I notice I've been improving in the color department since I joined DA. It's so very helpful to be influenced by your peers! I had reservations about making her dark-skinned because I've never experimented with those tones, but I think she turned out with a lovely mocha flavor. I could just eat her up! ;-) (if she didn't kick my ass first!)

The background was taken from a vacation snap I took in the Pacific Northwest last year. I did a fair bit of editing on it to make it suit her character. Now if I could just come up with a name for her....

Ah, and a festive Yule celebration to you as well. Have a lovely solstice! :holly:
