[Reference sheet] Terre d'Ombre, the dark elf Picture

Ok, it is time that I introduce you one of my new Oc.

Nb: the reference sheet is done in a simple way, with flat colors, and just a little shadow. It's not a WIP, it is a voluntary choice (you will see quite detailed works of him in the future). That said, let's go!

* Weapons of choice:

* Historically:

The Dark Elves were a persecuted people and chased by the light elves (who thought that black elves were indignant to belong to the race of Elves). They lived hidden in dark places, sheltered from view; before living in their own world (Svartalfheim), far from all. Due to this story, Terre d'Ombre has retained a rancor against the light elves, although nowadays the two peoples live in peace, but they will never forget the wounds of the past.

* Trivia:

It is not known if Terre d'Ombre had any Wood Elves in his family, because he has some features that are unique to this breed, such as:
- He is very close to nature
- He can speak and understand animals (real and fantasy). He created a telepathic link between him and the animal, thanks to the magic of the Wood Elves.
- He can feel what feels vegetables, plants, soil, water, etc ... and know the state of nature (if it is polluted, if a tree is sick, etc ...) thanks to a magic touch. This power is double-edged, because as Terre d'Ombre feels what the nature has, he can suffer enormously, depending on the severity of the situation.

The race of dark elves is deemed aggressive and violent which is not really Terre d'Ombre's case, who acts rarely aggressively and never uses senseless violence (especially when it is not necessary!). For cons, the Dark Elves have a very strict code of honor, and Terre d'Ombre is rather proud of and it takes him to heart. He can not stand when it is violated.
