Well, it's not the first time I drew them as grown-ups. Colouring them's a bitch, though.

I've been pretty quiet here, but I just wanted assure the calendar team that yes, I will have two entries ready before the deadline. I'm working on the colours now.

I considered doing more, but other stuff got in the way... One entry is plenty anyway and working together with a colorist (Mirr) was fun!

Heya! I've been an ElfQuest fan for a long, long time and I also was a member of the old EQfanart... and EQfanart2... I've dropped out of the EQ fandom for a year or two (never completely stopped drawing though - even last year had an EQ drawing or two) and I draw... lots. I'm also editor-in-chief of Windshaper's Holt (an offline Holt) and involved as an artist in several other Holts.

Oooh, nice coloring! The eyes are especially pretty! I'd make the body a bit broader though... the shoulders too. Right now it looks as if the body is about as broad as the head. Oh, and something I always recommend is to get a book or something about anatomy - especially one that has pictures of the skeleton - bones and such. It's really helpful to understand where the joints are - shoulders, for instance, are round, not straight and squarish... darn, I wish I had a scanner here, so I could whip up a quick sketch to show what I mean... but I hope it was helpful for you all the same...

Guides & Guidelines / Re: Gallery Rules

I don't mind, if I'm asked permission beforehand. My objection against tracing and copying is that it doesn't produce anything new, but this would be different with referencing. Well, I suppose it would matter how much of the original picture is incorporated in the new one. If somebody had trouble drawing legs and used a certain pose in a picture of mine to help with that, okay. But copying a pose in its entirety and just adding different hair and clothes and such... I'd think that a bit much. 

Also, I wouldn't mind if someone saw one of my pencil pictures and contacted me and said, "hey, that's a nice picture - can I use it to practise my inking skills?" I would consider that "enhancing", not "copying" or "tracing" the art. Although sometimes the line between inking and tracing is pretty thin (insert "Chasing Amy" joke here) - I suppose intention is very important here. Either way it would no more than polite to contact the artist and get permission. It's the right thing to do.

Is there a rule about people tracing other people's art to ask the original artist permission first before posting? Personally, I would be very annoyed to find someone traced one of my pictures and posted it on the internet without notifying me in any way whether I'm credited or not. But then I don't take very  well to tracing, period. I can understand it when you do it to try and improve your own art - but putting it in a gallery as work of your own (whether crediting the original artist or not) is a bit beyond me. For that matter, I always prefer to see original work over any traced piece, no matter how beautiful.

They are all wonderful! Will you do a computer paint tutorial someday? Pretty pretty please with a dreamberry on top?

Wow, this brings me back... I wonder if more people from the old days will return as well?

I used to work with Painter Classic... but I need my sister's cd to install it on my new computer and I'm not sure it still works... the cd got damaged a long time ago (my sister isn't very careful with her belongings) and last time, I could only install the German version. I also got Corel Draw and I'm learning to use that now... and I want a tablet!

What I'd like to know is: is it allowed for an artist to team up with a colorist? Or other team-ups - artists and inkers, for instance.
