Just Because

Working on a new picture with no reason, I mean if no one wants my art I may as well paint whatever I want! Not sure of the title or anything else on this but it has an elf fighting a winged/feathered serpent. The serpent may end up being translucent, not 100% sure yet, also still unsure of whether the snake coil around the waste will be there or behind the body. Any thoughts, ideas are welcome. This is about 19 x 15 on Canson board.


  1. This is beautiful! I am looking forward to seeing the detail on the serpent's coils. I don't think it should be translucent. The drawing here is excellent and I love the white highlights. However when it comes to the elf's face and eyes, it looks like he is not looking at the serpent and actually not fighting it at all. I don't get a feeling of threat or menace. Maybe he is just playing with it! (So to speak.)

  2. Thanks. Yes, I will most likely have to redo the eyes... as for if he is fighting the serpent, I am thinking he may be summoning the serpent.

  3. Wow, this is gorgeous! Agree with Pyracantha about the eyes, but I'd rather see the painting as a summoning rather than a fighting. It looks so sensuous.
