Okay, talk about lesser known characters! Wow, this is such a cool choice! Just look at them! Were they ever depicted in color at all? Anyway, love the coloring. And, ahem, yes, can't stop looking at a certain Bowie-esque crotch area here. Very nice shading on that.... not that I am complaining!
This is so vibrant and shiny! Truly weightless and other-wordly!

"Bowie-esque"... :D Well put, Treefox!

Ouch.  Makes me want to recolor this thing.  I didn't realize the contrast was so stark, but I thought (and maybe it's true for the original) that it was in line with the highlights in the rest of his weird leotard, or whatever it is he's wearing.  Ouch.

No, as far as I know, no one knows what their coloration is, so I asked Maggie if I could just come up with something.  This is what hit me.  Still sorry the reds, oranges, and yellows didn't come through as well as the original, but I tried.  I thought "sky" for Annahvi and "earth" (sort of an earth goddess) for M'Ren.  And if Annahvi has that perceived a well wrapped package, maybe that's why M'ren is considered a "lifebearer."

Aww, please don't feel bad, Amberfox! I enjoy this so much! We can use a little sexy once in a while.
And I love the colors you gave them, so fitting! Very well chosen indeed.

Amberfox, this is my favorite coloring of yours! It is so vibrant. You might think that the contrast is too stark but I love it. I think it works so well. I also just dig that you included the troll. I loved him, even in the few glimpses of him he made an impression. I loved how he and Annahvi were antagonistic towards each other while M'ren got along with the troll. I wish we got to know more about him.

Goshhh this is fabulous! I love that you chose these characters, they only had a few pages of "screentime" but they really piqued my interest, so I'm delighted to see art of them. I never noticed how wild their outfits are though, getting into those must be a challenge! You always do such wonderful things with hair as well, and the ribbons on their clothes, you really manage to use them to elevate the piece. And I like the colouring, it has a very soft quality to it!

Annahvi always makes me think what is he going to do if he needs to...eliminate...very quickly.  Getting out of that thing can't possibly be any easier than putting it on.  As for M'Ren, I'm not sure if she's a floor gymnast late for her ribbon dance or a badly wrapped UPS package.

But thank you all for your comments.  I'm glad you like it.

The background looks fantastic! You captured the colors of the Palast so well. It makes the two elves even more prominent. Interesting poses, too.

First I thought the red haired one was enchained or tied up. That is a clothing to wear best in the palace. Like the deep colors in front of the shimmering palace walls. The fabric looks so soft. But the Troll makes it for me. He/she is gorgeous! Love the cheeky smile.

One would wonder if this one is already FinalQuest timeline, with the troll in the background (and the fancy costumes)? One might also wonder if they fly-dance, maybe the palace enables them to. An interesting idea dynamically and colourful put into reality. And that's a lot of long nice hair. :) I also like that fairly triple contrast, the blue-violet vs. the bright orange-red and vs. green. Her hair also looks like a big comfy chair where she rests in.

I must've missed a story somewhere, because I have no idea who these are.
But I love the feeling in the picture, and that long, flowy hair; like you managed to find just those characters that match your style so extremely well! ;D
