This is a hasty pen drawing that I decided to color 'cause why not? The subject is an elf character I came up with...oh...something like 15 years ago. I don't remember her name. I was just thinking about her in connection with something else (*coughIsnitWeyrdcough*) and thought she was overdue for a reboot of sorts.

I tried sketching her out and liked how it came out, considering it was just pen on index card, no pencil or anything. And then felt like coloring it.

I HATE ARMOR. There are not words for how much I hate drawing (and coloring) armor. But I did deliberately use cool colors throughout. She's not supposed to be warm and welcoming. She's a warrior, and her job is to kill you if you become an enemy. I DID remember her having lavendar hair in her original incarnation, so, lavendar hair it is.

Ignore the green blob where her legs should be.

Pen on Index Card, colored in OpenCanvas, smeared a bit in Photoshop; probably 5 minutes tops to draw, and like 2 hours of coloring and messing with it. xD Priorities = straight

Yeah she might be my 2nd character if I ever get enough CP/monies for such a creature. We'll see. If nothing else, I may re-create a backstory for her just to do so.

Alternatively, I could make her a man to help contribute to MANSPLOSION! of 2nd characters. But have decided nuffin' yet.

eh, it's an elf. It could be a man already and you just don't know it yet. Those aren't boobs. Those are flowing fabric poofs.

Thank you. As usual, once I posted her, I noticed about a billion things wrong with her. But, eh. Quickie ink sketch.

But yes, her hair is nice. The blood of one's enemies keeps it silky soft.
