Smile by Ciuva Smile by Ciuva
Not so obvious why this is fantasy, but she is an elf. Was from the beginning.

Originally a wallpaper for my computer, starting out just as a doodle, but as usual I'm never satisfied with the wallpaper. So it's not anymore. The original was less blue, more green, but I think this version looks good too (involuntary colour change, so to speak). She was supposed to be a bit sadder-looking, sort of with a sad smile, but somewhere along the road it didn't turn out that way. Not that I'm not satisfied with it, it still has some of that mood I was aiming for. The anatomy of the face is different on purpose, I'm still trying to figure out in which ways elves look different than humans, except the ears and eyes.

So, continuing on my quest for finishing all my unfinished pictures... =P

Ah, I love the greens that you put in her skin...that matches the background very nicely. The composition is awesome and I like the wave action on the hair.

Thank you :) I tried to experiment a little with shading in this one, to bring the background and foreground closer together, so I'm glad it looks good.
