Elf Queen Lines by Gweyeni Elf Queen Lines by Gweyeni
I really like coloring other people's line work, so I thought I'd try my hand at creating my own. The original was drawn in graphite on an 11x14 sketch pad. The scans kept smudging, though, so I took it into Photoshop and relined with the pen tool. WOW did I learn a lot about the pen tool doing this!

The necklace was referenced from [this] one on IllusionJewels.com. If I'd thought about it, I probably could have put some matching bodice jewelry on her ... but I really don't want to play with it anymore right now.

If you would like to color her, click download for a larger version (it should print out as an 8x10). No need to ask permission before doing so. :)


_______
Rules (as short and simple as possible, I hope):

You MAY color & post your colored version here on DA, in your personal websites, or in your other galleries so long as my signature and web address remain on the image. Linking back to the original in your description is appreciated.

Absolutley NO PROFIT of any kind is to be made off this image (altered or not) at any time.

Do not remove my signature or web address. Do not claim the lines as your own. Do not redistribute or post "as is."

You don't have to note me when you upload a colored version, but if you leave a comment here we can all come see what you've done. :D

looks awsome the sausem like all your work... just one detail: The line on the left side curving from her eye to your chin is a bit to thick perhaps compared to the lines the lips are made of... but that just catched my eye hehe

Gweyeni Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2007  Professional Artisan Crafter
Yes... I can see it now that you pointed it out. :blushes: That's one of the first parts I did. I started with a 20px brush, but apparently it kept shrinking from there as I started on the details and forgot to go back up. I wanted to have a lot of line variation, but sort of fell in a 10px rut. :hmm: Something to keep in mind for the next go-around.

Thanks for pointing it out, though! Now that I see it, I hope I won't oopsie like that on the next one. :hug:
