Updated version of 'The Gift' also in this gallery. Decided to try a new style with line drawing and computer coloring. All 'effects' were done using layers and transparency only filter used was blur on background shadow and light rings. The Story: The elf entered the catacomb, pleased with himself for solving the riddle at the tomb door. Suddenly the torches lit and he heard a soft voice whisper 'Well Done, Child. Come claim your reward' As he moved the slab of the coffin, a wisp of smoke poured out taking the form of a human female, 'You have proved yourself worthy'. She raised the sword from her decaying form and offered it to him hilt first,'Use it wisely, and it will serve you well!'
