'..They were a branch off from the High Elves, a newborn race so pure and beautiful, so young, that non could ever fathom one such could ever exist, nor could they ever appreciate this gift bestowed upon the ignorant eyes of man. They would never understand.'

Yep! I'm still doing that 'Dragon's Blood' thingie I have in the Wyvern's Library, after picking out error after error in the first few chapters(urgh, I stink). I did this on line paper again(NOOOOOOO! <( ) during my Chinese, Physics and English classes(yay! teachers were to busy to come for classes) when I finally strayed from the subject at hand i.e. revision :P Blah, I regret it now... maybe.

UPDATE! The lines have been removed!!! yeah! Thank you soooooooooo much Y! *gives 'er her whole-life's supply of candy, hankies and teddies* whee!

It's wonderful! Makes me think truly of an elf. Or a forest spirit, such as a dryad. Very nice, Athy! =)

She's so beautiful! I love her hair, so whispy and soft looking! And her eyes seem to stare right at you! This is so gorgeous! Even the fourwinged bird is beautiful! I love the light shading you did on her also... So beautiful, so very very beautiful! *dazed by such remarkable talent* and don't worry 'bout those darn lines! ^_~

I think the anime-type style is fitting for a faerie type thing, because, after all, that is what a sidhe is, eh? ^_^

A sidhe is a faerie or a faerie woman right? Ugh! Gaelic and Celtic language is not my strong suit. Anyways I love her eyes, they're like....so cool! Can you stop by sometime and gimme some input on my faeries?

Itīs awesome! I have made a few drawings myself (nothing that can even begin to compete with anything iīve seen here though...) and i have had quite a lot of drawings ruined by those stupid lines as well... Well anyway i guess thatīs the price to pay for playing a big artist in the midle of a singing lesson (yes really, some of my best drawings where made without a table). Note: Kinda long isnīt it?

Omigod...... :19oh's and ah's for awhile:: 'Tis purdiful....I love her eyes.....and the bird! :14oints to the bird:: I notice the things that nobody's supposed to notice. Hehe! ::bounces off to the rest of the gallery::

You've got a nice bit of motion in the picture with the hair mimicking the curve of the branch and the bird mimicking the twig. I would recommend doing a bit of research into blades though (Or maybe just cruise the net until you find something you like and draw off that), as the blade she's holding doesn't look like it cold be effectively used at all. The shape of the blades clashes with the way it would be weighted.

This is probably my favourite from your gallery. She looks very sidhe, like I've always imagined them. Wild. Her eyes are beautiful, I relaly like your shading.

As much as I hate to admit it - school time seems to provoke 100% interest in art for me. Well, which would anybody prefer: art or *insert hated subject here*?!

Anyway, I love this - it's a great doodle, and it would make a great watercolour or pencil 12 *hint hint*
