Caught by surprise by delira Caught by surprise by delira
This piece is for “The Secret Lives of Elves” contest from ~elves club

The Character surprised is a young wizard.
The contest theme inspired me and it felt good to draw up an elf.
Hope you like it and thanks for looking.

Very nice! My only critique is that something needs to be done about her open mouth. The colour inside needs to be darkened, and maybe slightly reddened? Just 'cause at first glance it doesn't look like her mouth is open. But yeah, otherwise gorgeous! Love her eyes and the matching glowy feather pen.

I didn't wanted to exaggerate her features too much, in my opinion elves have quite calm faces :)

True, that's true. Though you could have shaded her mouth a bit darker because now it doesn't look like a hole in the face.

I love the details on this, and the smoothness of it. I wish I could achieve the smoothness in my own artwork. Ah well, I'll keep practicing.
