Maybe I'll draw something someday, if I'm in the mood.

I love seeing the color variations! It's like sweets for the eyes!

I don't really have an elf self, so you wouldn't need to worry about including me. I just want to see something with everyone else. However it is done I think it would be lovely.

Thank you, jaRf.

Ohhh... Vaeri. I am blown away. I absolutely love your artworks! <3 The richness of the colors, the shading...they're masterpieces! <3 So glad you shared with us! Thank you!!!!

My elf self was called Fairyring but now her name is Prayer. She was renamed because of her loving prayers for the tribe.

Your colors for Prayer are just like I imagined. Thank you. It's beautiful.

@Evil Evie: I plan a group picture as our elf selves. Would it be okay for you if I would include you, looking like Venka?

If I had to choose an elf self I think it would look like an amalgamation of Cutter and Foxfur. I did some thinking last night and remembered an OC I created years ago that came about because of a recognition between those two. *laughs* I daydream up some interesting things.

Prayer I love the softness of your coloring, and the elegance of the characters. Very fitting for Elfquest characters. And the inking also looks good.

It is fun to see your take on it Vaeri! It looks great!

Mermaid sight...!

*Merbala caught in a wild hair moment*

She being a shapeshifter gives me much creative freedom. Fascinating character Embala/Merbala is. Wink

Prayer, I cannot (at all) draw but I'll tell you how I envision my elf-self ( since loooong ) :

Sort of a grown-up Sunstream, in a kind of futuristic space suit, seemingly simple yet evolved, subtle, sober, elegant. Main colours for it are jet black + light ( sapphire ) blue and deep blue + silver ; minor colours are amethyst, linings of clear gold, forest green + sand clear yellow ( his mingled origins, "from both forest and desert" ). He still has his very tanned skin, clear blue eyes, blond hair ( but in a slightly, more adapted and restrained haircut ).

( While browsing the myriad of sci-fi pictures I collected for years, I realize..



..it's very difficult finding the picture of a spacesuit not too heavy )


He wears a very special long saber ( straight back but doubly incurved edge, like the weapon named 'flissa' on our world ), made mainly of synthetic sapphire, a vibrating blade set to cut to the bone and through much, that he wields extremely precisely ( high and loooooong training ) in order to limit physical damages for the enemy to the exact required efficient minimum, a weapon also able to send micro darts (paralysing poison or explosive).


( What does a flissa look like? this )

I see him as educated ( intellectually and scientifically) in the extreme through manymanymany contacts with other sentient beings, all along the Palace's spatial explorations, wanting to UNDERSTAND all or most of those strange races that the Palace elves will meet or will have ( unfortunately ) to fight..



..or defend against.

Far ahead in the future.


I love sci-fi.


( one of the covers for the "Dune" cycle, by Frank Herbert )

Add a cape ( for chameleon effect ) for NOT displaying his appearance to anyone or robotic observation units ( he has come to value discretion, for special operations ).

He is STILL a dreamer..



..but now he dreams a better future for EVERYONE.

Far more a scientist than a fighter or extreme spy, even if he HAS to play those roles. Hence some specific data-stealing system integrated to his stuff and costume ( maybe some kind of hi-tech discrete bracelets ).

( I am TOTALLY unable to draw anything, but..



..I'm very fond of character-customization programs.
Here, a character I designed with such a system, for a futuristic role-playing game session. )

I feel you're an artist enough to explore that vision.
But if you don't feel like trying your hands on it, any other artist, here, may also try, why not...

My eyes will see any attempt with joy.

My eyes see with joy such a clear vision of an admirable, futuristic self elf. This descripton is truly fascinating. Thank you so much, PC! I will give it a try for sure and feel very honoured for this commission.

I have to thank you in advance for even trying, some day, dear Prayer!
A good visual ( and heartwarming ) complement would be a furry creature, an animal companion, maybe resembling a little those extremely beautiful animals called 'genets', on our world ( long tail, cat-like, very quick, dart-like head movements ), maybe just a little smaller ( an adult genet is roughly 1 meter long, head to tail).



Just know there also exist totally BLACK genets.

Cool...

Ain't this young genet..



..cute?

I studied these animals ( Genetta Genetta and other varieties ),
and they are lovable creatures,


ones that have for loooong FREELY chosen to CO-EXIST with us..
..and who proved to be the very BEST rodent-killing creatures we EVER lived with!

Their fur is coarser than cats' and they do smell of musk, yes..
..but they are VERY clean animals, and extremely agile predators, FAR more efficient than cats.

They may also prove to be..



..fierce guardians.

I didn't know genet existed. They are so cute and exotic. I could see having a character in a story have one as a pet.

Your elf self description is so detailed PC, I love it, it is so perfect for you.

Prayer, I forgot the most important detail and the only one set in stone, a fire burns in her eyes.

Thanks, but I must admit I didn't go far into details, though.

If Prayer is curious enough, she'll find muchmuchmuch more data about me simply by exploring this place for my past posts. Or by chatting with such good friends as Kin and Embala.

Only curiosity and imagination..



..define intelligence.


Well...
For Prayer's possible attention, I'll add something more personal.
My INTJ personality type and my all-too rational mind make me mentally resemble a lot to the infamous Sherlock..


..of the BBC One channel, and such traits do not allow me to believe in such things as "reincarnation" cycles...
Yet...

I once found this portrait..


..and I had ( and still have ) the strange feeling of looking into a mirror.

Yes: the human mind is a weird thing..

For instance, this self-protrait by Van Gogh, I have the odd feeling..



..it goes straight through my computer screen!

Am I crazy or just too much into aesthetic sense...?


Anyone's guess..



..I suppose.

Thank you so much for marvellous Merbala, Fairyring. I love you
I love to see your powerful take on Embala, Vaeri. Very Happy Thank you!
And thanks for sharing your vision about your self-elf, PC. Genets are adoroble.

Thank you Evil Evie. I hope Vaeri will like it as well...her self elf is such an inspirational beauty! I would like to learn more about her background. Right now coloring her with pastels.

Wow...
The "elf selves" collection promises to be a wonder!

As for the spirit of my elf self, it muchmuchmuch resembles this:



Joyful, mischievous, and brave.




Keep the good work coming, dear Prayer!

wow that is exquisite prayer!!! Vaeri looks absolutely gorgeous! <3 almost like something she'd wear in the palace sort of thing...! but oh so lovely. i WAS going to color Merbala, because mermaids are awesome and i love them...but now i gotta color my girl first. XD

ya know funny enough, Vaeri is not much like me! in terms of appearance, we're very different...but she embodies some things i love. gold eyes, she's a seamstress, and the color teal and transparent fabrics.

but if you're really curious...

Vaeri's Story:
 

and that's Vaeri's overall original story. as i said, some details i really wanna change like names and appearances, and some details i just never totally figured out...XD but my friend did design an elf self who is very much like me, in that she looks and acts a lot like me! she's a Gliding Dragonrider!!! i suppose i ought to ink and color her myself, she's been a sketch far too long...XD

Thank you. It was fun to play with the colors on her dress. Glad you like it as well Vaeri. If not, please tell me what I can improve, please. It's YOUR self elf after all. I wish to portray correctly.

Oh, I checked the web version, she looks normal sized on mobile version. I always use mobile version. Can you click on the picture and see the full drawing? Sorry for the oversize in web version and thank you for informing me, Embala. <3 It's not very eye-pleasing if she is "cut".

I absolutely love the story of Vaeri in the alternate EQ universe, Vaeri...! So sad with the lost Sunvillages but great friendship with the Gliders. I like how some things are familiar. All different characters make me curious about their names, how they look, etc..

When I read those stories I feel an urge to illustrate them. All the pictures in my head, the action, the romance, the colors. I wish I had endless time for drawing and art. I have respect for comic artists like elfmom. It's a very hard job, especially with deadlines...I loved how in "Hidden Years", (Little Patch for example) every panel seemed to be an artwork of its own. Sorry, my thoughts are wandering now...

Vaeri, the scetch of your other self elf 'Fairbreeze' is very gorgeous!

I am looking forward to your coloring of Vaeri. <3
