This is the completed version of the 'female elf' pic. I'm planning on doing a computer colored version sometime (hopefully). I'm satisfied with this one, but I'm not sure if I'm really happy with it. I really like the foreground and the border, but I'm not so sure about the background. How amazing, I actually did a full background that wasn't cheap, but unfortunatley I wish I would have done a lot better with it. The grass in the back and middle of the background looks decent, but I don't like the closest section as much. I really liked the hair before, but now the sheen on it just looks far too strong for the lighting, but I didn't want to fix it for fear of messing it up. This picture really helped me get more used to using colored pencils and trying to create different textures, appearances, and colors.Maybe I should have stuck with my original idea of making her look a little bit more bloody, but oh well, this is okay enough. She looks like she needs some story as an explaination for the scene.Pencil sketch, micron pen inking, and polychromos colored pencils
