I'm updating this description, I drew this back when I really disliked the American comic book style ( other than Elfquest). I decided to do a makeover of the elf, you can see the before and after, and I was messing around coloring them. :) I'd had some help from a drawing book [of comic book characters would you know...] for the positions. This character represented me, he's very tempramental as you can see (I personally don't show anger so obviously, I go into sulk mode), I named him Tyger, not very unique I know. The other dude isn't meant to look like any certain superhero.
Scottish Joke: It was Jessie's wedding day and she looked radiant as she walked down the aisle. When she reached her husband to be, she noticed that he had his golf bag and clubs leaning against the wall. Surprised, Jessie asked 'What are your golf clubs doing here?' He looked into her eyes and said 'This isn't going to take all day is it?'

Like the pic. I never comment on things i don't like, so you know you have a fan if you see me. I do like Marvel comics, i admit, but i also like stuff like Jhonen Vasquez. And manga. You could try looking for X-1999 by CLAMP, a team of all female artists. They are wonderful illustrators, and even you might overcome your revulsion long enough to read.
And um, don't hit me for this, what's elfquest? (Sorry! But Northen Ireland has no redeeming features except the goths and Forbidden Planet) E-mail me with details of where I can get it, please. or with images from it.

18 Jenny M. Heidewald replies: "Jenny's Note: At this time this picture is a bit out of date with my views, I should probably update the description! I don't really have any revulsion against any comic book stuff anymore, I just make fun of them sometimes now, the "She is going to fall on her face being so top heavy!" comments. <2 I have read some of X-1999, and it drives me crazy because there is so much stuff going on in the pictures, all those feathers and stuff, it's almost like abstract art. Some of the other stuff they have done is really nice though (I have a friend who is a manga/anime fan, and is part of staff at Otakon in Baltimore, the biggest Anime convention in America). Elfquest is a graphic novel by Wendy and Richard Pini, and was influenced by manga/anime (I only realized this after I got into manga/anome). You can find them on the web by typing "Elfquest" into a search engine. Beautiful art, too bad they discontinued the full color books. There are tons of images all over, I have some fan art in my other gallery of two of the characters (took me forever to get out of drawing like Wendy!). Thank you, good luck and enjoy!"

LOL, I hadn't seen this one before. Maybe I'm getting blind (since there are comments on it made in 2002). Anyway, I really like it. The elf reminds me a lot of Elfquest (naturally) and the super hero... Well, he looks a lot like those cliché super heroes (the ones unnaturally muscled and invincible). I like the concept, and it's very well drawn (as usually!!).

1 Jenny M. Heidewald replies: "Jenny's Note:Hi Sofia! Did you see the front page of Elfwood?! I am one of the featured members of the day! AAAH!1 This picture has been in the Lothlorian Gallery until a few years ago when I tried to resize it and got told it was going to have to go into sci fi. So it's been over there for a year or so, and now it's back over here...<2 I am glad you like it, and Elfquest is right, made this during my height of Elfquest mainia. 2"

Eh, this is totally off topic(reason for putting it in a new post), but personally I favor comic books over anime. I love detail and realisum, I'm always trying to capture the moment. Nevermind that I fail horribly... Anyway, I have the mindset that anime cuts corners, how horrible of me. Just figured I had to root for the ole team, LOL. ^_^ But what about those funny little comics like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Garfeild? Haha, they don't usually kill off too many people. 1

And Spiderman... They kill off too many people there. 8 No one comes back from the dead... And too many people commit suicide >.< Anime doesn't have any depressed peoples quite like that, or bring them back over and over again, major plus! 14

Okay, I'm finshed. Please forgive me...x_x

2 Jenny M. Heidewald replies: "Jenny's Note: Anime/manga comes from a totally different culture, and once you get into the whys you realise that if you had to put out a comic book a week you'd go to a simpler form of drawing as well. When I first encountered the style I hated it because the noses were not real at all, and the eyes were so huge and a bunch of the girls have twig legs with huge breasts...Of course with American comic books they also have the huge breasts... <2 Garfield is among my favorite comics, along with 9 Chickweed Lane and Pibgorn, and Mutts, and Calvin and Hobbs...There are pros and cons to both styles, in the art and in the writing. I am sure that if you digged enough you would find depresed people in manga, they cover a huge band of different topics. 2"

Yep, its the slender waist, sway of the hips, full hair, lovely eyes and fine cheekbones that make the 'he' look like a 'she'. Placing him next to the sterotypical superhero man wasn't the best move either, since you get the muscle man that a lot of people see when they think 'man' and this more feminane version refitting his jaw. ^_^ I love it, the original beating the typical. Perfect! 1

7 Jenny M. Heidewald replies: "Jenny's Note:True, true, if I redid it I would make the elf a little less slender of the waist! But at least if you look closely you can tell he is a male rather than some pictures I have seen where it looks exactly like a woman and you only have the say so of the artist that it is a guy. <2 Thank you for all of your kind comments, I will reply to them all, if not tonight then another day. 2"

You're a great artist and I love the picture, but can you please make the differences between the sexes more obvious so people won't think it's another picture from "Girlpower Gallery"?

33 Jenny M. Heidewald replies: "Jenny's Note:*scratches head* Girlpower gallery? I guess I could get rid of his clothes, but then I'd have to color more skin, and I avoid coloring skin as much as possible. 12 I guess he'd count as a "bishi" nowdays , when I drew this I'd never even heard of that term."

the elf is rather obviously a guy..... dont know why people keep calling him a girl..... actually, he looks like a blond version of kurama from yuyu hakasho 1
elves beat superheros any day 1
