This was supposed to be a series of pretty boy characters with a mirror or frame decor in the background, this time though I painted a pretty scenic backdrop(I don't do landscapes often) inside the frame and two NZ native bird species atop the frame(the smaller being the Fantail and the other being one of NZ parrots(A Kaka)) handpainted in photoshop with my mouse.. the parrot alone took me all morn at close quarters(my eyes, the feathers, ohhhh), but the result turned out very well I thought! Now if I could get better results with the human form... *bangs head on wall* I used a model but he still looks a little awkward! -_-

Cool eyes cool hair cool pose cool body, but are you sure it's a man? Well, i guess elves do look kinda feminine! Those birds are really cute, and i can understand why they took you so long to colour. Oh yeh, just noticed, the mountains in the background are cool!

Personally, I think you need to work on the fingers a bit. They have too big of joints. That's just my opinion though, so maybe I'm wrong. i love the birds, and the background.

I thinks he looks a little like a female.

The dude needs some clothes, but otherwise it's an awesome picture. I love the hair and the eyes and I agree with everyone else that he's sexy. Hey, is he Legolas by any chance?

I don't really like it...he looks a bit like he is expecting you to come and kiss him.

I think he should stand and face the viewer!

Your "Fern Elf" is beautiful. I hope all of the young Elves look as good as he does. Seen your other work and they are equally as good.
