Elven Subrace Cartoon- final by Mistresselysia Elven Subrace Cartoon- final by Mistresselysia
Or '4 Different Flavours of Elf'

At sodding last!

If anyone hears me twitter on about painting feathers again, you have full permission to chop my hands off. Never. Ever. Again. Demon and dragon wings are a doddle compared to feathered wings...

So, it's only taken me, what? over a month to finish this (!). Kind of did an hour here and there - couldn't say how long in actual hours, but to sum up hubby's reaction to me painting it today... 'Are you STILL on that one?'. Yep, it's taken a looong time to finish. Started off as a crappy lineart - halfway through painting decided to ditch the lineart and paint free hand.

From L - R = a drow, a Fey'ri (elven tiefling), an aquatic elf and an Avariel.

I'm off to bed now. Need sleep.... *yawns widely*

Elven subrace types coutesy of D&D (WotC)
Artwork by me :aww:

Please full view. Please... :pray: All detail lost in tiny view!

The aquatic elf and the Avariel don't look right. Avariels usually have marble white skin, maybe with a tint of blue or silver. Love the Fey'ri, an awesome race, even if they are a race of inbreeds.

I like this picture! Nice to make a combination with these four types of elves, even though I'm not familiar with the Fey'ri and the Avariel.
The only problem I see is that the drow and the aquatic elf is standing on the Fey'ris feet. =p

DUDE there are winged elves in D&D now? Man I've been out of the loop. That's really awesome! For some reason, the tiefling elf reminded me of a Soul Reaver/Legacy of Kain type design...me like:D

Yup yup! Good old Avariel... although they aren't really a player race, more an NPC race, like Drow (although that's never stopped people!). Aerie from Baldurs Gate 2 is an avariel who's had her wings cut off. (he hee... as for the tielfing elf - yeah, he was hugely inspired by LoK. I was playing Blood Omen at the time... gawds, I love Kain!! It was kind of inevitable... :innocent: )

Wow, good job on the Avariel's wings. Is that the name for the so called "avian" elves? I've heard about those in the actual mythologies involving elves. Also some crazy guy that's into that sort of thing said that supposedly I am one... wierd... Would be cool though.

It's a very nice pic. Too bad it's so big, I can't get an overview... I don't like that you have to scroll when looking at a nice drawing as this.

:worship::worship::worship: This is most definitly one of your best pieces yet. There's just sooooo much to love about it. It might have taken a while but sometimes you need those long breaks to recover or else you'll burn out on the pic before it's done (especially with one of this size and with this much content). It all just looks totally and completely awesome and I can honestly say that the hair on each and every one of these characters makes me totally jealous. I soooo wish I could draw/paint hair so well! Oh and don't even get me started on the wrinkles on the clothing. You just really outdid yourself with this one. :+fav:

*stares blankly at screen for a few moments* The full view is just......-wow-. The skin on the Drow *whistles* (alright maybe I'm biased but *shrugs*) and those feathers are breathtaking! I'd say the time spent was well worth it.

Lawks, that looks like it took a while to do! I love the expression on the Fey'ri....and his pecs. :9 And the Drow's chest. (But poor abused Fey'ri feet!)
And dear god the feather wings on the Avariel - er, wow. O_o Groovy work, you win a coffee I think.

The only thing that bugs me is the fact that the Drow and the aquatic elf are standing on the fey-ri's feet.. looks a bit weird to me.

I know! When I inked it, I didn't realise it. Then when I came to colouring it... ARRGHH! They were supposed to be standing a little way in front of him, but I buggered up... ah well - at least they have feet this time! :aww:

Thanks! :hug:
