Lethean by SoraNamae Lethean by SoraNamae
One of the random portraits I did earlier this month...
Wanted to do something cute and dark at the same time, a pretty rare combo

I guess she is some combo of dark elf + fairy or something, not even sure

This went through a lot of different versions, but when I arrived at this one I knew I would keep it
Because of that, there isnt really any special meaning to it, its up to your interpretation

She could be a sluagh--they're a race of Scottish faerie similar to the different Irish sidhe races, sometimes described as the spirits of the dead who turned into faeries or as mischievous faeries who would only come out between sundown and sunrise and play dirty tricks on unsuspecting humans unlucky enough to be out after dark (think "things that go bump in the night"). Those huge, pale eyes of hers, reflecting light like a cat's, would unnerve any mortal that saw them, and I can easily imagine her peeking into bedroom windows looking for handsome men (or lovely women, or even both, depending on her mood) to lure away to Elfhame to be her lovers for a while, before she got tired of them and brought them back to the mortal world again. Or maybe she's a night faerie who fell in love with someone, but knows that the one she loves is not for her, which is why she looks slightly wistful...

Sure, but I doubt it will look good shrunk to 50x50

If someone asks you about it, just point them in my direction :P

Just... sublime. The pretty Dark-Elvin based character carries both a bold yet gentle air about her implied personality, best reflected in her jewel-like gorgeous eyes, and overall flowingly soft design (Although her chained muffler suggests a backstory of sinister nature). Her stare is very simple yet deeply communicative, suggestive of various subtle emotions all within a tranquil feel. It really is spellbinding. Also your trademark tonework & atmospheric secondary lighting as in its best in「Stay?」[link] is at its full again, with chiaroscuro contrasts deep yet gently soft and really adding wholesome light glazes which seem to gradate & ride harmonically with her healthy physique, especially with those smooth yet firm defined arms. Also such lighting helps create a sense of soul emitting from within the character, direct exposure lighting would have never worked here. Lastly the gentle, speck glows around her add a sweet touch. :star::heart::star: This IS special in being able to express in many levels visually. One of your best efforts in digital painting, with wholesomeness & emotion blended together well. Simply Stellar job!
