Elf disturbed on her way to the bath. Not my most original motive ever, so take it for what it is … I was just wondering at the typical portrayal of elves as creatures of divine grace, good spirit, youth and beauty. I’d expect that at length immortality might wear anybody out, hence her features, by way of reaction to that image. Can’t you see her thinking, ‘what are YOU looking at! What’d you expect!? Now, get out of here!’

Lol a most nonstandard elf. You're right; after a while you'd think immortality would get on your nerves, and her look is priceless. =) Great job! *first comment dance*

:-) Helle Jorgensen replies: "Thanks! I'm glad if I did manage to acomplish an 'unstandard' depiction of an elf. I think I should work to go beyond elven and human motives though. It's just that they are comparatively easier for me to draw, since I've practised drawing people a lot. Elfs, then, are largely a matter of 'add pointy ears and proceed as usual'. But I was quite happy with her look myself (let's not mention the background, shall we?)"

Agreed! Even long lives have it's limits... Though I would never imagine anyone wanting to peek at an 'extremely' old elf's bathroom. 2

:-) Helle Jorgensen replies: "Who'd want to peek ..? I never thought that far. Well, perhaps another old elf? He he ..."

Wow, she really looks annoyed! Interesting take on immortality...

:-) Helle Jorgensen replies: "Thanks! I notice that you have a priestess of immortality in your own gallery, so perhaps we're equally intrigued by the idea of it. Contemplating the case, I'm sure that I'd rather remain mortal, but perhaps most persons would find that preference a bit odd, if given the choice. My stance probably shines through in my drawing, ahem ... Anyhow, I had fun doing her facial expression."

Ooops!! Sorry for disturbing you..! Real good job on her expression..!

:-) Helle Jorgensen replies: "Now that's the proper attitude towards a grumpy old lady! She forgives you for intruding ... Thanks for the compliment!"

Great positioning of the body..And i have to say...this just made me laugh! Great job.

ha ha, great expression, i love the jerky lines and rough shading, it makes the pic so much more meaningful!

:-) Helle Jorgensen replies: "Yeah, this one was mainly an excuse to draw a sour face. Realistically, you can’t expect elves to look elegant at all times, can you? Thanks for the compliment!"
