Elves and Such

On January 8, 2018, I had absolutely no idea whatsoever what to draw.

So, I started sketching the outline of a human face in my sketchbook.

Slowly but surely, it morphed into a kind of ethereal being, adorned with delicate jewelry and simple makeup. This was the finished product.

I decided that she was some sort of elf. Overtime, she began to capture my imagination, and became obsessed with sketching these beautiful elves.

My second elf. I really enjoyed working with her hairstyle and circlet.

This might be my favorite out of all of them. I especially enjoyed the thorn-like piercings at the top of the ear and the feather woven in her hair. I imagined that it might be from some sort of hawk or falcon.

This one sorta looks like she has KISS makeup. Oops. 🤘😜

She’s also the only one of the elves who has…

…drumroll, please…

…eyebrows.

I don’t know why, they’re kind of prettier without them. With this particular one, I felt that it kind of fit, but otherwise, I nixed them out of the other drawings.

I really enjoyed this one’s expression-curious and a little pensive at the same time. I also used the same technique for the curly hair as I did when I drew Annie Clark and Dustin Henderson.

My final elf, so far. I thought of giving her more of a flower crown, but I decided that the whole concept was rather overused. The little blossoms and petals in her hair and the twin roses on either side seemed better, anyways.

 

Have a favorite? Feel free to comment! I hope you enjoyed my elves!
