Elves stumbled upon orcs? I would think the opposite way might be possible or else these elves are from the not so bright clan that i forgot about... Haha nvm what i just said its a good pic Sky van Niekerk

Great job, especially on realism and detail. The two in the background look kind of "posed" though, kinda thrown in as an afterthought. Sky van Niekerk

If I may suggest, your composition could use some more work: the size and placing of the figures. Also, I think the closest tree could use some more roots, and the distant pines are too regular and alike. Randomize them a bit and treat the forest as mass, rather than just individual trees. Just my thoughts. I love the action, please drop by my gallery sometime. Sky van Niekerk
replies: "Thanks for your comment! About the compositions of the caracters... It was my intention to ehm overreact?(don't know if this is the right word for it) the sizes. The elf who got shot is supposed to be the eyecatcher. That is why he is very out of proportion. The tree advise is wonderfull! thanks! I already used it in one of my sketches and it really works! thanks! I definately will stop by your gallery! would you keep in touch with mine? please share your comments with me because I can learn from them!"

Good action scene and a nice amount of detail - just from a perspective angle though the elf bent over in agony looks a little too big for the part of the picture he's in - but the pose and shading are great Sky van Niekerk
replies: "The perspective is done on purpose...just to express his pain or something...thanks for your comment!"

Now wait a minute this is a very good picture but every orc ive ran across defenitly is alot bigger then a elf and alot more buliker and uglier but I do have to admit you got the elves down very well even though I find it hard to belive a bunch of elves would be clumsy enough to have orcs surpise them but hey they might have been havin a bad day like i said its very good work Sky van Niekerk
replies: "orcs are smaller sometimes than the elves, like in LOTR. those Uruks were bigger but those where not orcs. and well, this group of elves...eh... maybe they had a little bit too much of a party going on the other night that influenced their sharpness "

orcs are much bigger and bulkier than elves...its those goblins that are smaller. Urukai are simply more fit and appear muscular than orcs. Sky van Niekerk
replies: "oh well... lets call them the bad thingies against elvelike thingies^^"
