I can't draw men without a model, so I used a photograph as a model for that one. It's a young elf male. I think he came out cute, don't you think? I also did a color version (this one is just pencil), but I'm keeping the b&w one as well.

The face and upper body are completely flawless, but the hand holding the dagger kind of lets you down. But it's a fabbo work!!!-----(---@

the face...use a bit less shading on the lower lip. It usually catches more light.

Ooooooooooooooooh. What a cutie. (runs up, snatchs him and runs off. Laughing insanely, while he screams)

I think the hand is off. I think That if I ws you, I would say that she had her elbow to far out. Well any way, At least it is better than David Higgbees.

The picture is great, really 2 If i were to pick out a problem, i would say the eyes and thin waist make him look more femenine than masculine.... but the eyes are an amazing shape none the less.

:-) Hila Gerasy replies: "Thanks! I used a picture of Keano Reeves as a reference for that pic, so if you liked the eyes, you should thank him... in the original photo his waist look very thin because of the posture (you actually see the waist from the side and the chest turned toward us), but in any case, I see elves as delicate-looking creatures, and so they may seem to be a bit feminine."

I already comented on the color one, but i must add you should draw your female figures from photos also, it really helps.

I have to agree with you Ms. Gerasy, Elven forms are or at least should be a bit frailer than the average humans, and I think you did quite well, however seeing the B&W version has made me notice something, it's not that the waist is too thin but the leg ( our viewing would say the left, and his right) is a bit too skinny, give it a bit of meat and all's good. And as for the hand in the background, Perspective, it's a big word folks but she pulled it off quite nicely all considering.

Very cute face and upper body. There's nothing wrong with using photos as references! He looks very alert. 2
