Hi watchers :D
I'm back with a "little" break (2 days) in a big project commission. I made the lineart for this pretty wood elf about two months ago ; I asked an artist I admire if he wanted to make this one a collab and work on the color, but he never answered so i decided to give her some colors myself =P

So here is a clever elf playing chess with the wise old tree. This came directly from the deepest corners of my brain, don't ask me why ^^

Hope you like :D

She is NOT Poison Ivy... I do like Batman but come on people, a red-haired girl dressed with nature is NOT necessarily Ivy. Thank you.
I'm seriously angry against you è_é

As usual, this artwork is mine and may not be used or modified without permission, thank you =)

J'aime beaucoup la gestion des couleurs et des textures.

Le jeu des ombres et des lumières est également sympa, mais on aurait pu imaginer les contours un peu plus sombres, afin d'encourager l'oeil à se concentrer sur la partie d'échec ou sur la nymphe.

Concernant la technique de dessin, j'émettrai une légère critique concernant l'épaule droite du personnage, qui me semble un peu désaxée, trop en arrière, alors que son bras part vers l'avant (pour déplacer un pion). Ses seins sont également un peu trop haut, ils devraient être un chouïa plus bas :)

En tout cas, très sympa d'aspect général, continue comme ça ! ^^
