Elf Archer Beauty Shot by mansarali Elf Archer Beauty Shot by mansarali
So here's my original elf archer character with a bit more time and thought. Wanted to put her in her environment. No reference apart from flicking through a few jungle images for color range. Can't remember how long it took as I did this over several days with most of the time just leaving the PC on and me being elsewhere, so doing a bit here and there

Original cell shaded concept: [link]

Yeah thanks for that, never heard of elves having super light weight and balance and off there is that thing called fantasy, as in anything is possible, you don't suppose you can actually shoot ten people in one action jump either but it doesn't stop anyone animating or drawing it or producing it in movies. Also elves can shoot pretty fast, so think of this as a 2/3 sec pose where shes bouncing around branch to branch, and if you must know I take criticsm very well but that one's pointless for the above reasons, :D

Hi there, I am making a card game and I really like your art style. Could I use some of your images for the cards?

The card game is my final year project for my University. The will be no financial gain from that on this stage.

Umm, you will have to give me a little more information and be specific as to which ones, also draw out a signed form stating that you I am the owner and copyright of each image (you need to list each image) and mention that you are ONLY getting a permission for license to use the each image. I will let you know from there which ones I can let you use and which you cant, thanks (oh yeah you will have to give credit linking me to either deviantart or my website, ta

The game I am making is a strategy/ card game hybrid.

I will send you a full list once I find the ones I would need.

If you give me an e-mail address I can show you exactly how the cards will look like.

And to clear this bit out the only alterations that will be done on your images (if you allow it) will be minor blending options such as putting a black/white gradient with multiply to darker the image and softly blend it with the rest of the card.

Naturally you will be creditted for your contribution.
