Daily Drawing 2016-12-1 - Wildling Elf Woman by RoninDude Daily Drawing 2016-12-1 - Wildling Elf Woman by RoninDude
Another bit of practice to help me break away from doing the same facial and body structures. This character is much thinner than my usual females, and has a different shape to her face. 

I imagine Lin and Ellie are different races of elves than this character, being as they are a bit shorter, and not as thin. I like the idea that this character belongs to a race of wildling elves, living in nomadic tent villages in the wilderness. perhaps they aren't very fond of traditional civilization, but are known to trade, from time to time. Where Lin and Ellie might not be as in tune with their natural elven abilities, these elves cultivate such attunement with nature, above all else. I suppose you could say these are your traditional, nature loving, stuck-up hippy elves. ;P

Just some random brainstorming while I draw! Doing these sorts of exercises help me to come up with new ideas for the fantasy world I am slowly building.

Dude! That is a well-cool design. I love the variation of loose, tight, revealing, concealing, embroidered, paneled. And then all that business on her head enforces her as a unique character among her culture. Speaking of which - nice lore. 'u'

Thanks a bunch! Sometimes I like to get lost in the details.... Though I am sure many artists can say that. :)

With characters like these, I don't generally come up with backstory, so I suppose we could just leave it as a mystery, for now. I just drew her as practice for trying different face and body types. :)
I am glad you like her!

Battleborn is an online first-person shooter video game developed by Gearbox Software. It's kinda like Overwatch but different.

I love how long and lanky she is, though i have to say, there's way too much going on with her face. I think the subject isn't well balanced out, since the piece is focused on her figure first, and her face second. I kind of wish you made her clothes look as cool as her tribal makeup does, because that green outfit is kinda bland

Yea man,   a slight style change?  A little more edgy a little less ...cartoonish,  but every bit as good as we have come to expect!

I dunno if it's a style change, but more an expansion of face and body types. That's what I am going for, at least! I seem to have a standard "heroine" face and body type that I use for every female character. that's what I am trying to break. Just working on growing as an artist! :)

Wow, she looks surly! Did someone cut her tree down?

She may have her reasons, though... what with those scars across her face, including over her eye, which even seems damaged... still, I have objections about "hippie elf". More like "fundie elf".

She is very slim. I bet even Sassy Elf outweighs her. Must be very agile. Now, if she is an archer, just like Ellie... then she needs a very light bow. Or do some push-ups :B . Unless she's the magic-using type.

Her face is good, but methinks it could be more angular to better suit her personality. Then again, she is better that way...

Please keep rocking, man.

I didn't want to go too angular with her face. 
And "fundie"? Had to google that one. XD

So, I guess that Snow Elf from last year is a 3rd race? Love the self-assured almost haughty "my tree is better than you" expression here. Wonder how the discussions at the Elf convention would go...
