completely reworked my concept of an elf princess. focused on trying to create some serious 'real' paint effects, using underpainting and glazing to create a subtle moonlit aura. learned a huge amount.

Fantastic! Such a painterly effect, I think that you have cracked it Jeff. She almost looks like an Egyptian queen untill we look closser at her. I am bookmarking your gallery, I really must return often!

The thing I love about your art is that although your elves have ethereal beauty, they still look real. She looks like an olderish woman instead of the stereotypical young woman, very regal but also very wise. There's just something about your art that stands out and makes it more believable and real. Amazing job on this and everything else!

:-) Jeff lee johnson replies: "Caitlin, I am very pleased with your comment. I think you have summed up in a nutshell what I am hoping to do. Thanks for mentioning it and glad you like the other stuff as well!"

Very, very beautiful. Sort of a wistful quality to it. I love the Egyptian flavor to it, too.
