Inspired by Terry Brooks' Shannara series :) For those who haven't read the books: Elfstones are a very potent magic that can only be used by those with elven blood (elves or part-elves). These are the blue Eflstones: three stones combined to symbolise the user's mind, body and spirit, they can be used to seek things out or as a weapon (or defense) against other magics. Obviously, the wielding of such power causes a range of side effects and most of the characters in the series that use the elfstones find themselves overwhelmed by the magic. Bless ;P I don't know which character this is... you can choose, hehe. :) PS + Wacom For all you picky people out there: - He hasn't got clothes on because I'm not very good at drawing them ^^; - I know the elfstones shouldn't be glowing unless he's using them but if I didn't draw the glow, there'd be nothing to see ;P - don't ask about light sources...i dunno, I just did whatever. - I know his body proportions are slightly off. Whatever ;P

Nice work. Gives even more magic to the books. I love the soft tones, they make it look very much like a fantasy piece.

Good Lord, Fae. You're getting better so fast it's scary. This is beautiful - a digital Maxfield Parrish. The soft focus of this image really supports your premise and the soft colors and stylized methods really create a mood and tell a story.
