Playing around with a color combination I don't usually use. There's really no point to this picture other than that I wanted to draw some elves. ^_^

The usual. Start to finish in photoshop. Used posemaniacs face ref for the guy's profile since he kept coming out too girly at first. He's still kinda girly, but not so much that I mind.

He's not girly! He's just angular, like I always imagine elves lol
I adore this. Gorgeous colors and I love the sense of, "this is war, it sucks, but at least I have you," going on. Am I the only one picking up on that?

I don't know... I see it more like "Love always goes hand in hand with war" , the dark colours are bringing more "dead-end" situation. Like they have no other choice but to fight this battle, their faces are sad and resigned. The scenery is truly beautiful though.

I like this. The "Girly guy" is fine. He's an elf. They both look like an attractive couple. And the war is illustrated well enough. gj

Love this picture! Reminds me of Isabella of Castile and Ferdinand of Aragon because of when they were on campaign and deeply in love with each other… absolutely beautiful piece!
RIP I'm sorry I never got a chance to view your work and tell you how excellent it was before...
