But he is not an elf. because he also has a tail! ))) And his feet are pretty unique too, though you can see them on this pic. )) This is a different creature from my original graphic novel. you can follow the link in description to see what I am talking about. )))
I just called him an *elf* for lack of more suitable name... and elfs can have tails... tho Tolkien's elfs dont... and he looks most like them... other than the tail... and I havent been able to examine his feet... or he could be a troll... it all depends on the the source... he looks VERY interesting!
I will definately check out your original graphic novel... I have the link on my desk top... just need the time...
Oh no! I know that you didn't mean any disrespect! Don't worry! And I was not offended of course. My own parents believe that I am drowning an elf story. But I can ensure you he is not a troll either. He is totally hand made race.
I am pleased that you are interested. Hope you will like the story, though is has just been started as a comic. It's originally a published novel. Take your time and don't let the link get lost. ))
Id perfer this to be a girl as well. Its an interesting twist yano. (One of the Main reasons I clicked it...) I was like "A girl Fighting a dragon with her arms glowing and Ipod about to thwack her behind the head... HELL YEA! ID Pay to see that "
But its a guy... Still very impressive though. Girl or guy I couldn't pull off something like this yet.... (Still learning how to blend and change brushes in Photoshop) Much Props.
Ps. Sorry the Russians usually don't believe your talented. Ignorant people will always be there to hate I guess
Well, I can understand you. But as I'm a girl, I prefer to draw male characters. I think this is gender issues. As you may notice on DA, a lot of male artists love to draw girls, and female ones prefer to draw boys.
To my mind some of your characters appear rather androgyne, gender is sometimes difficult to decide and probably often irrelevant for the matter. The above for example - at first I thought it was a flat breasted sportive (trained biceps) young woman .. the soft features of youg people also are often misleading ..
Also gender in my opinion rather irrelevant here, since the particular kick and effect in this work is produced by a rather slim and slender figure in light clothing (may it be man or woman) is fighting a dragon and not a fully armed, heavily muscled warrior (which would follow the overstretched paths of historical pictures of heroic knights fighting dragons )
If you relate on customs of DA (men depicting women and vice versa) - this may be true statistically but I think that an artist like you will (hopefully) reach a level where he/she depicts the gender depending on the sujet and the desired effect of his work and not because of some customs of other pll. .. .
Best regards and my compliments to your crafty, technically very advanced and art!
