SIL NUEDA (Wood Elf)

This here, is the depiction of a male Wood Elf for a dungeons & dragons world, where they are known as Sil Nueda. And, to quote:

"The Wood Elves, as other non-elven races came to call them, are the fair folk of the forests, referring to themselves as Sil Nueda (translates to Night's Children in Asil, the elven tongue). They have a very long life span, closing in to seven centuries, and are known for their traditions, honor, striking beauty, and legendary patience. That is, until someone depletes it."

For this piece, I wanted to let my love for Justin Sweet and fantasy Warhammer book art get in the way and influence me as much as possible, combined with my own track of style. Darker mood, soft and earthly color palette, and a controlled mess of brush strokes produced this result.
