Christmas Elf



Here's my mythological creature. I was trying to think of ideas for a Christmas card, but ended up just doing some little elf doodles instead. I think I may do another one before this topic is over.

Nothing super fancy or experimental. I just scanned in the sketch and then cleaned it up in photoshop. I mostly used the default soft round brushes, and that blendy finger thing. Oh! And I put some subtle textures over the top when I was finished.

Critique away!

Mythical and Seasonal to boot! I have no crits really, great little piece.
Love that elvish flair in the hair!

She has such a great expression. Very cute. The fur turned out nicely too.

Maryn, love your work like always...and she does have a cute look. Actually...I've seen the expression before. Reminds me of your Nancy Drew smirk. I don't know if smirk is the word. It's that "I think there's something going on here and I think I know what it is" smile.
