Clawed Elf Night by socar Clawed Elf Night by socar
It is not my usual subject matter--but it was fun to deviate from the norm a little for this commission of a role-playing game character called Khissa.

Absolutely stunning. The colour scheme is great and heightens the atmosphere of the image. I like the way you've handled the texture, as it looks realistic, but in a romanticized way (similar to Elisabeth Librun's old paintings). Fantastic background, too. Very well done. :)

I can sense her anxiety. She seems uncomfortable as she waits for the future, maybe life, or spring.

There is a little contest going on in the Poetry forum [link] where we were supposed to use a piece of graphic art as inspiration...and I chose this piece. Hope you don't mind, but just wanted to let you know. It is such a beautiful piece, Thanks. :-) (Smile)

Here's the outgrowth in case you were wondering.

Is it so empty
to look into the fleshless days and wonder
if twilight could seal open skin?
Where have those instances gone
that drew beauty from my veins
and made me draw you close
as winter draws the autumn -- into itself.
Have you gone?
...to search out eternity,
and allow me to stand in the decay of your scent
;lost in the horizon - fragile - and failing
stringing days together like so many blooms
watching them wrinkle, wither, and wane.

MY Gawd. I've never seen anything like this before, and it's Sooo beautiful.

I love autumn colors, but that's not the reason why it's a favorite. The face and the surroundings are so very well detailed. It's enchanting.

If you make prints, I know you get a lot of suggestions, but this is one of them I would buy.

Jawdrop Beautiful job!! I could never do something like this in a million years... =D (Big Grin) The character is so pretty and so is the setting... of course.. There is another person here named Enayla... her stuff reminds me of yours.. although it's different. I don't know how you can do this well... it's amazing!! Keep it up... =) (Smile)

You have amazing skill! This character seems to have a beauty about her.. the background sets a great mood. The detail in the clothing reminds me of some of the old masters of painting. Beautiful work! :) (Smile)

Damn.. where to start.. First of all, the background is what really catches my eye.. Maybe it's because I completely suck at creating backgrounds ;-) (Wink) Yeah so I'm jealous.. =D (Big Grin)

Anywho.. I like how the background is so complementary to the character without overpowering the piece.. Khissa, is still very much the focal point, but yet the surroundings add so much more to the feel..

Artwork like this is what makes me happy to be a part of this community.. You're truely one of the best around and as long as you keep submitting pieces for us to look upon, then I shall always be here to comment on them.. ;-) (Wink)

I can see why this made the top faves. The earth tones are positively exquisite! The way you faded the light behind the figure really makes her stand out against the pale forestry. I think it is the curves in the bottom of the drapery of her cloak that catch my eye the most. I don't see why this is being compared to Linda's stuff. I mean sure..similar subject (fantasy) but your style is a bit more abstract than Linda's. Also, you use more earth tones..well..from the few pics of yours that I have seen. Your stuff is more 'natural' looking overall.
