Pause from the Hunt by Zephyri Pause from the Hunt by Zephyri
This piece started as a bit of painterly sketching on a lunchtime, and morphed over a few months into this. Gotta thank the great *ChrisOatley for the advice he gave me at one of the Oatley Academy Live Sessions - it brought the piece out of okayness into something much more polished and considered! I've always loved the idea of a race of more feral elves who hunt in steamy swamps and jungles, and throwing in a beastly companion just adds to the appeal for me. Imagine Avatar but where the native species hunted with bare hands and tearing teeth and didn't mind if they went the rest of the day in dried blood.

All photoshop. No ref initially but was using loads by the end for everything, and couldn't tell you how long I spent on it. Lots of hours!

Edit: uploaded one to see if the darkness was any better.
