Trying out some new styles, and I found I quite like this semi-realistic stuff. This does not mean I am converting entirely, as I find it interesting to draw in not just one style depending on the effect one is going for. But I digress...
Elven characters are quite, what's the word, ethereal? Traditional mythological woodland folk are represented as graceful and beautiful (swishy-swishy sparkle-sparkle).

This elven creature was probably the result of some sort of concoction of Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones (which I watched the first episode of the other night, as Boromir's actor plays a rather large role (he is old, but still cool)). Perchance there is a dash of Eragon in him as well.
