Random elf: "I want some gloves..."
Me: "You can't have gloves, the only skin in the picture would be your face and I can't have that."
Random elf: "Can't I hug my cloak around myself instead of letting it flutter around like that?"
Me: "No you can't. Stop whining."
Random elf: "I'm cold...."
Me: "Pull yourself together, only another hour or so!"
Hey, maybe that's why he's looking so moody. XD Poor elf.
I was just reading a tutorial I stumbled upon, and as soon as I saw the sketch there, I immediately had this picture in mind... So yeah, you can say the pose is shamelessly ripped from that tutorial. ^^'[link]
That's exactly the thing that suggested that maybe I should use references more often...
EDIT: I've tweaked the background a bit. The shadows are a bit more interesting now and (hopefully) suit the elf better.If you are interested in prints, please purchase them at my Society6 account! [link]
If you are interested in an artwork that is not available as print, you need only request it. Thank you!
