Litchee the dark elf by Deevad Litchee the dark elf by Deevad
I made several studies on this artwork :

- playing around to come back to life my old OC named "Litchee" ( main character from one of my first comic project , as a teenager )
- testing a new way to conceive my shading ; from the light bouncing off the orange tissue background environment
- creasing the blacks values on the picture and keep a high-contrast
- studying also this grayish skin mid tone I wanted to get for my vision of the dark elf ( drows )

I kept 'unfinished' parts because I'm not really satisfied with the result, and prefer to move-on to another study for now.
software : Krita on Linux Mint KDE

Although you're not completely satisfied, and it's been left unfininshed, it makes me happy to see you working on an OOC from your teenage years. I hold some hope for myself in seeing this happen (revisiting characters I invented as a kid) as I make more effort at regular practice now. It's hard for so long to have so many ideas and none of the skills to do the imagination justice.

Younger you would love this piece, I'm sure. I wish you could send it back in time, but since you can't what a great glimpse into the future you are giving young artists who see this evidence they can work at getting their skills closer to their tastes, one day!

I really like the look of Krita, but have to stay with Gimp cause of the known pressure sensitivity issue with some tablets. Great art, as always!

no problem. On krita.org you can see under the 'community' button a link to the IRC chat.
You can ask question on it 24/24 , 7/7  :)  answers falls usually in the hour , when someone around got time to catch it.

I really like this one, deevad! The orange hue in combination with the b&w works very well. Interesting touch to give her cold-bluish eyes and lips, I would not have thought of making that particular contrast to the background. Whereas you say some parts are unfinished, I think the rougher parts help bring forth her face, so in this case it was a good choice.

I don't particularly read this as a drow though, to be honest - that is, I don't read her skin tone to actually be like this, but rather I read it as being normal-hued skin being desaturated for graphical effect. That's of course not to say that your vision of a drow would be the same as mine or TSR's. ;)

Finally I got to hand it to you - your elf-girls are generally pretty but I must say this particular gal is quite exquisitely so. Great work, faved!
