bottom half, face, hair, and wings hint to femaleness, but authors description depicts otherwise. interesting concept! the green caught my attention initially, and I was impressed by the detail and color shading, and props for it not being a digital print!

Chronamut responds:

When you see the rest of the body it will hint at maleness again, as there are exposed abs and tummy hair and whatnot. With elven you have a lot of play with androgyny and thus don't have to fill the "masculine" role. A being that looks both male and female usually hints at both masculine and female energies within their being - a more complete being.

The green I used 5 different colours for - black, dark blue, blue green, green, and pale green, as well as some purple and gold.. I find it gives it much dimension.

And thank you for not downrating this based on thinking it should look more masculine.. this world is very male energy oriented so things like fine features and long hair seem to be wasted on it - when ironically if you went back around 400 years the reverse was true in nobility. On can say this picture contains "noble features" - delicate, high cheekbones, long hair, etc.

This piece has taken a long time to do.. the precision is probably about 1/10s of a millimeter..

also there is a lot of detail on detail on detail.. like the wings you can still see behind the hair where they connect to the back and the hair weaves in and out of the crown and behind his body and through his outfit.. it's been a very frustrating piece to work on but I feel it's my best work yet - the face was particularly challenging - my goal was to have sort of a final fantasy cg grade look - a combination of anime and realism.

Good, the only problem is it looks like a girl-man.


Chronamut responds:

it's elven.. it's supposed to be androgynous.

You and I have differences on what constitutes an elf, and I will fight you to the death over them.


Chronamut responds:

yes but we both have our merits in our opinions and both our opinions can be valid hehehe

thanks for the review!
