Most of my elves are 5 or 6 years old but since I started thinking about their story again, I have a couple of new characters ;P Lady Anatanya is a councilwoman, 2nd in line to become Queen of Esterahad should anything happen to the current one. HMMM let's think about that one for a while. >_> hahaha. I really love her outfit, went for a puritanical look.

I should hope the classical painting inspiration is apparent here. I try for it fairly often but it's kinda tricky to capture that feeling digitally (and with er, different subject matter) I think... what made the difference here to me, is that I painted over a blurry photo of a sketch and it had a lot of grainy texture that still shows a bit. Btw it's opencanvas. As usual, hehehe.

Again I meant to upload this months ago but I'm a flake. SORRY @_@

The colors of her outfit please my eyes :aww:
Dark tones with parts of light-purple and gold :drool: Awesome!
She looks like a mild, well-mannered woman (hard to find one nowadays ;)), fitting the role of a councilwoman/queen-to-be.
Such a pretty woman :giggle: I have to fav her :+favlove:

I enjoy the thick lines and lovely features, also the pattern on her shirt-corset-thing is lovely.

Oh WOW. Her makeup is REALLY cool.
Also I totally got your feel of the traditional painting look, I first noticed it with her forehead.
You're awesome at drawing fingers properly. They look good and not all messed up like how I draw them. XD
Her outfit rules!
Your characters are luff.

Hahaha her makeup is actually kinda conservative. Anatanya's meant to be pretty mousy... by elf standards anyway.
My fingers are ok... much easier to make them look good with gloves on. I'm not usually happy with them especially when I see really awesome ones somtimes... fingers are HARD to make sexy.

Her big shiny forehead is my favorite part XD
