Wildling - The Guardian by JenZee Wildling - The Guardian by JenZee

//Edit: Changed the water :) Hopefully it's better!

Finally got around to finishing it :). It's probably a good thing that I took so long to pick this piece back up again, as I had a fresh mind to doodle with! Thank you all for being patient and taking the time to look!

A wildling I suppose, but not as in Wildling from George R R Martin >_> (obviously). But yes.... For those of you who asked (on the WIP) whether or not I would give him pupils (to which I replied "NO"), I lied >_>. I changed my mind^^. Ermmmm, water was fun, but I kind of wish I had done "still" water... Oh well. This piece is comprised of many of the things which I wanted to challenge myself with...

1. Feet
2. Water
3. ENTIRE BODY IN PIECE~!!! I recently realized I barely ever do this. The Itachi piece was also me starting this "entire body" trend ^^.
4. Backgrounds. Backgrounds backgrounds backgrounds backgrounds. If you have any tips I would LOVE to hear them T_T. I suck ;_;. This is one of my most complete backgrounds ever to date X_X.

Must improve! Must improve! Must improve!!! T_T
Anyway, elf d00de ;) Thanks again :O!!! Comments/crits/etc are all appreciated.

Here are detail shots of the face and body:

No idea what Earthdawn is LOL!
I've just noticed, that it's "Wildling", not "Windling".
Note: Earthdawn is an heroic fantasy pen and paper RPG. Windlings are small, winged, elf/faerie-like creatures.

I love the natural look of this and the colour scheme is so soft it looks really beautiful.
