This is a kender (it could be an elf, if you prefer), which is a much-loved subject for me. I drew it after a photographed model, and I think it's pretty good. The technique for the shadings of the gem I took from David Palladini's style in illustrating Stephan King's 'The Eyes of the Dragon'. It's a 'must' book for fantasy lovers, and if you're not the reading type, just leaf through it to see Palladini's B&W illustrations.

Hi Hila! I really like this one. The expression on the face is just great. The neck may be a bit too long, depending on what you were going after...never can tell with fantasy races though. I like to draw my elves and such slightly out of proportion. Hope to see more soon.

I love Kender! She seems to have the right expression, terribly innocent looking, but there is something there that shows her true nauture; you turn your back, you will have definatly lost something!

Hey, wait !!! She's wearing my necklace !..What?? No, I didn't wanted to throw it away !...Soo...you think it fell from my pockets, uh ?

I think it looks more like an elf, way too elegant to be a common thief.First of all, thanks for saying she's elegant (Took me quite by surprise...). And now, a useful tip: never, EVER, call a kender "thief". It's what would be referred to in action-films-cliches as "BIG mistake"...; )

*grins* yes, there are several fates that can await you if you call a Kender a 'thief'. You will either get babbled over, knocked down or go home naked.

This is great. I like it, simple lines that make the picture really nice.

Very simple and well done, it is good that you draw from real models or from pictures. It helps. I dont know too much about the kender, apart for theor healthy atraction to thing that for some reason are other people's, this is another one i think you should try to paint. Very nice.
