This is steampunk vision of a wood elf. Dead and defiled forests, polluted sacred glades, and a vow to revenge for this.

Novels of James Fenimore Cooper - The Last of the Mohicans and other of the series ispired me too while i created this mini. In fact, the girl armed with axe cus of that). And because tree killers must be finished with the very same weapon they use for their cruel deeds too. Costume of the elf shows she already half-belong to new human civilization, although she deny this.

Hi Nakatan and welcome to Astro.

Why not drop over to the Introduction Forum and introduce yourself so we get to meet you properly? (http://www.astronomican.com/forumdisplay.php?35-Introduce-Yourself)

I hope this is the beginnings of a long stay at Astro and not just a plug for Cool Minis...

Not a bad job on the woodelf, some of the freehand patterns are really nice.

The painting is rather good, but I think the pose on the woodelf lets it down a little. I don't play fantasy so maybe my perception of the fluff is a little too tolkienish, but I have a hard time imagining elves throwing up their weapons in anger. I would expect her to appear much more subdued, sort of disappointed, in her positioning and appearance. Good job all the same though.

I saw your thread on Dakka Dakka the other day about Alien Contact, great work that if you take it in for what it is rather than what is going on. As others have said, that it leads to so much controversy and discussion really shows that it is good art.

Welcome to the forums.
