Green Elf----Laiquendi by Ginger-J Green Elf----Laiquendi by Ginger-J
Green Elf----Laiquendi~~~~

In the legend ,Green Elf Laiquendi is the descendant of Teleri who is one of the three elf clans. Laiquendi Kingdom locates in a mystical forest surrounded by water and rich in water resource. This is a elf clan with a close relationship with water. So water covers a large area in the picture, and I’m very happy while drawing the strange water creatures. As a result of my happiness, some details of these little strange things are ignored as well.


Teleri is featured by elegant silver hair~~. I like drawing silver hair, but what I draw this time is a Green Elf with black curly hair which is known as the feature of Wisdom Elf. I prefer black to silver here, cause it passes a comfortable feeling of velure, which looks more staid and melancholy of oriental feature, instead of looking too coquettish.

PS, Wisdom Elf also seems to be called "The Thinker"? hha ~~


Thank u very much my dear friend Bryan who modeled for me. Only face part was drawn under the modeling. And the gesture totally comes out from my imagination, because I failed to make out the gesture myself since my legs can’t be that long….Just kidding~~~
Forgive me , It’s not my original idea to give him such a weird gesture, but I figure it’s better than just leaving him standing in the water. Nevertheless, that’s it. I’ll modify it later if necessary.


I've worked too much on the Laiquendi ‘s face. But it disappoints me a lot that it’s not that clear after zooming in. For instance, the strange water creatures are too small to be recognized. The same thing happens to the shining stuff hanging on the trees, and the texture on his wings. I won’t show all the details, but I’d like to upload another picture with details of some parts.

And thank all of u who give me a hand and support me all the time~~


Have fun guys~

Gorgeous work! I love the softness of the wings and the lighting. Is the bird a lilac breasted roller?

I don't think Tolkien's elves had wings. And the Laiquendi were not /quite/ that wild ;)

Nice job!

It's a good piece but I recall a VERY similar one by another artist... it was one of my favourite pieces on Epilogue, you were by chance inspired? you should mention/link their name...

I like your color, very nice shades of green. <3 His face is pretty and very serene. :love: Love the details in the wood and the cute bird. :heart:

However his left leg seems abit short and lil too big for his body. The perspective is abit off. Other than that, I love it. :love:
