This is a character I currently play in my D&D group, a redhead kender named Rian Nettlebranch. Now a confession: The face, outlines of the head and shoulders and upper arms aren't my creation - I took them from 'The Art of Pocahontas' (they belong to Pocahontas's friend, Nakoma, drawn by Tony DeRosa), because it has such a cute 'kenderish' look. The rest, including the pointed ear and the necessary topknot, is all mine, and I think it came out pretty good. It's one of my favorites.

This one has a nice style (yes, you should color her). One tip: pay some attention to the way her hands attatch to her arms. I find this one of the hardest parts in figure drawing. Look at your own hands, or use a simple trick by adding wrist armour. For some reason it often works quite well.

Now, I'm not one to follow the crowd, but she needs color. She has the classic "Who, me?" kender expression, very nice. I've let my friend be a kender in my campaign. He says he can roleplay one perfectly... and I know (by personal experience) he can.A really good pic.

You can definitely see her personality in this picture! I too would love to see her coloured.

Very, very nice. The expression on her face, the eye for detail and the great style of straight lines makes this picture stand out.

I adore Kenders, and they're certainly in a class by themselves. ^_^ This one has such an expression of joy, and I'm sure that something rather dubious has taken/is about to take place. A wonderfully drawn character, Hila. I can't help but love her.

Very nice indeed. I would like to see this coloured, but it looks good this way, too. I don“t know this character, but I like the style.

Try putting her is a scene or a back ground, that would add to her i think, this is one of my favorites, its amazing how a native american figure (disney style) can be turned kender like by adding a couple of things, perhaps their is a kender lurking in all of us.

And only now did I read the description >.< *hits head*

Holy crap! That reminds me so much of Pocohantas's best friend from the Disney movie... It took me two hours to figure out that it was her that your drawing reminded me of. Heh. Really nice!
