Elf Concept - Take 2 by Sycra Elf Concept - Take 2 by Sycra
After my last commission, I figured I'd try my hand at redrawing this image from 2008.  You can see a process video of how this image was made here.

i saw you did something interesting with the drawing in your video, painting it in grey scale then adding color to it later. i thought it looked awesome, would you mind doing a "how to" video on that sort of coloring process, or maybe just the different coloring processes you like and how to do them? i'm rather new to art still, and i'm kind of stuck in this mindset of pens and lines, so i really want to understand the mindset of digital painting more, to make proper realistic drawings.

I think it's gradient map (adds different colors to different shades of grey). He later used overlay/color dodge near the end to finish things up.

Fantastic forms and colors! I especially like the forms of her hair and the complementary colors!

By the way, how did you made the word "this" into a link in your description? Do I need core membership?

I like the drawing, but i love the color and the jewelry! but i feel like it would have been better design if the necklace was tight like a coker. because of the silver ring thing on it she look like a slave or somthing but it's to loose and becomes more of a jewelry? Maybe that's just me?

maybe its just me but the left arm looks kinda weird but other than that it looks really good

She has no bicep definition. When the arm is in that position the muscle bulges because its compressed, but he drew it relaxed.

Now that i look at it it's quite unnerving in a way (o_O')

Ah nevermind me I see it now.

Yeah there should be a somewhat more defined biceps.

The original is more Orcish than Elven. Tremendous improvement in 9 years. Great job, Sycra!
