I was an artist on Elfquest for a few years...one of my favorites, along with Barry Blair's ElfLord!

The coloring is really nicely done. I like the fade of the mountains in the background. What medium was this done in?

It's digitally colored, but the line work is ink on art board.

You're really good at traditional media, looks almost real!! Love the pose of the elves, and the background is superb.<3

The colors are all digital. I'm playing around with some new coloring/painting styles now and hope to show them off soon.

Yes it is. My sketchbook is available for purchase now on the ElfSong website and the comic itself is heading to the printer in about 2 weeks. It will be available in May/June and will run 4 times a year. Check it out: [link]

Heh, like everyone else I saw the thumbnail and thought "hey, that looks like Elfquest". So it does! Very nicely done. The line art is incredibly detailed, and I think I could spend hours looking at all the details in there alone. My goodness, the trees even! Must have taken forever, but it's just perfect. The color just pops right out, the shadows cast from the trees... what a great looking picture.

I think one of the things that really makes it work is how the lineart fades away in the background. It doesn't overwhelm the picture while still being detailed and eye-catching across the whole thing.

If I saw this cover I'd definately spend some time looking at it.

Psst: use the "reply" button or the people you replied to won't see your reply. ;)

Glad you like it! Wait until you see the covers for the comic itself. It's a lot of fun to work on this new comic after having taken a break from it for a while.

Thanks again!

It should. I drew the comic for a while back in the 90s. :) The Pinis and Barry Blair were all big influences on my work. Check out the website at: [link]
