This is a picture I made for Melus of her tragic black-blood elf, Azt. Kicked out of the Idoih Clan and disowned by his father the General for being so weak as to sometimes show mercy... Poor Azt.

I've wanted to draw this picture ever since Li told me to download Chop Suey with System of a Down. Not really my kind of music, but the lyrics fitted Azt very well. After several different takes I finally found a layout that seemed to work. Oh, and behold! It's not a portrait! Just... a faded portrait-ish kind of image in the background. ^^;;

Media used: Corel Photopaint 9, Wacom tablet. Computer painted from scratch. Character, names and story © Melus, image © me. Created in 2003.
You may not use this character/image for an avatar, nor display it anywhere in original or altered form.
