Hi there,

I am from Germany (sorry in advance for misspellings and poor grammar) and started dedvouring EQ comics 12 years ago. At this time, I was 17 and tried to find my muse. I did not draw much before, althrough my art teacher was pleased with all the stuff I created during lessons. EQ inspired me and helped me to advance my skills (if there had been any before). I loved creating new characters, draw characters of others and also wrote some stories. You see, I found my muse.

But during my time at university (I have a grade in biology) all got lost. I had not had time for drawing, nor was I interested in EQ anymore. Too many other things waited to be discovered. It seemed the time of my childish elf mania was over. Sometimes I regretted losing the ability to be creative. This moments of regret accumulated during the last 2 years.

But unfortunately without practicing I do not know how to draw anymore; I do not like the results. I have become afraid of pencil and paper but on the other hand I know that not trying would be a waste. I am missing the creative times and I am afraid of becoming a person that will always ask herself what could have been.

That`s why I am here. I want to renew my interest in EQ and above all start drawing again after 5 years without even holding a pen. At the moment you only find a folder with old stuff in my gallery ... but I hope there will be a folder with new stuff soon.
I am curious if I will hold on. Let`s keep fingers crossed.  ;)

Great to be here. I need a lot of inspiration!
Saree

... oh, and sorry for not making it short.  ;)

Totally forgot to introduce me here xD

I'm Deathwing, but mainly known in teh web as "Yako". I'm 23 years old and from germany.
I've been active in the old elfquestfanart site, and now I am here :D

I discovered Elfquest at the age of 11, in our public library - and Elfquest has been the cause of my drawing addiction starting at that age ;) it also led me to the world of Role playing games and all in all only to good things.

My main hobbys are drawing and Roleplaying games. Somehow, I didnt manage to draw much fanart for elfquest, because i focused almost immediately on my own characters.
But I still hope you like my works in the gallery :D

I was so happy my friend Sharon helped me find this site. I have really been enjoying looking at other people's work since I got here. I never posted to this thread before, but I want to let you know I appreciate this site. I have been a fan since the mid 80s and I even ran a Holt prior to the one I run now. It is a beautiful thing when EQ fans come together. I hope everyone else is enjoying this place as much as I am. I was hoping to see more people I recognized, I don't know where so many of them are anymore and that is a shame. However since everyone here uses an alias I don't know who anyone is save Amberfox. So if you know me hit me up. My name is Robin McCulley. I miss some of my old friends in the fandom, but have lost track of so many of them over the years. I LOVE EQ.

Huh, we have a introduction thread. Didn't know that! I'm Startear. I kinda use many different names online, like Kanzee, Dj Immoral Hands, Shuna (which I got before I learned that there is a Elfquest character with the same name), Ofelas... you get my drift. 

I discovered ElfQuest when I was fourteen, when Egmont decided to reprint the Original Quest, Siege of Blue Mountain, Kings of the Broken Wheel and Wolfrider here in Norway.

Mainly see myself as an writer and dollmaker, but been writerblocked, so I've been doing art and fanart. Mainly dork around with different styles and mediums. I often need to word myself around things, with this being my second language, so if I'm not clear, tell me, then I'll try to explain myself better.

Hi Hi Everybody!

I'm Gina Schroeder-Simpson. I've been in the fandom since about 96, when I joined the New (old!) EQ fan club and started to join some of the offline holts that were around back then. Since then I've been in and out of it, but I can't ever leave Elfquest for long. I've been part of most of the holts that are still around at one point or another. (coughs)

Anyhow. I just wanted to say hello! And Hi to people I have seen around the interwebs before I finally made it here!

I hope you will enjoy this place. Please feel free to share your art and opinions here!

Hello there!

I'm Kyna, current player of Starskimmer over at Rivertwine Holt. I'm primarily an artist, and was encourage to post some of my work here, so here I am. I live in San Diego, CA, but spent a few years in Germany and much of my early childhood in Costa Rica. I'm also fast approaching my 30th year of existence.

Fun fact: I've never attempted to draw a canon Elfquest character before. Isn't that weird? Something I intend to fix, at some point.

Ayoooooooooooooah and Welcome Starskimmer!

Great to see your art posted here and I hope to see plenty more. As for drawing cannon characters, in all the years I've been involved in EQ, I never drew one myself. It wasn't until I was invited to participate in the calendar (2012 and 2013, I think) that I gave it a go. Yikes! Much harder than it seems! But don't worry about it; we at this site love original art and enjoy personal styles and interpretation.

;D Hi ya'll!  I'm a bit late to the party, but introducing myself anyways!  I'm Robin Sturgeon Abess, aka Lightheart and I was first introduced to the glory that is EQ waaaaay back in the day, around 1982ish.  I met a really cute guy at a ComiCon in Dallas, TX {in the days before they were such HUGE affairs and so expensive} named Rebel Burkhalter and he and his friends introduced me to Cutter, Skywise, Leetah and all the gang!  Sadly, Richard and Wendy were at that con, but I didn't go meet them or get an autograph, as I didn't know how awesome this was then.  I joined the fan club in 1983 and stayed a member til it seemed to disappear.  Had two of the fan made magazines from the club, both of which are were lost to various circumstances {as were all my original books - le sigh}, but I have bought all the books again in graphic novel form and found one of the fanzines online, which I now own again.  I wrote a couple of poems and submitted them, but don't know if they ever got put in to one of the collections or not.  Anyway, I'm 52, have a 13 year old son, and am a huge Geek/Nerd, board and RP gamer {I DM for a group of 8, not including me, all female, ranging in age from mid-late 20s up to my age}, Dr. Who maniac, ML for NaNoWriMo for the Hampton Roads VA part of the country, reader, writer, and lover of all things nature!  That about sums me up...

Hello, not sure i 'm posting the right place, still kinda new here. I've noticed that my art submitions. are REALLY huge when zoomed in... are there any way of getting them downsized,   I can't seem to find anywhere where I can choose the size of them, or is it something that you have to do before submitting? I've noticed that other peoples art in this page seems to have a more decent size

Hello Bittersilk, if you want to give your picture a maximum size, you'll have to do that in en editing program before you upload the picture, or scan at a smaller size. It doesn't happen automatically. However, people can already view your picture properly so long as they don't click to fullview. But I see you've managed to change the size already, at least; I don't see anything wrong with it. :)

Yes, the first click gives me a roughly screen high image, the second one goes to full resolution. No harm done. :)

If you want to resize a picture there are some possibilities. It depends on your operating system and with that the possible programs. Though something like GIMP runs nearly everywhere. Or, for analog pictures the first part is the scanner or the camera, though I suggest not to take too low resolutions. You can always downsize images - but upsize only to a certain extent.
Make sure first to crop the image, then you can "render it down" proportionally. I could give you instructions for a few programs how to do so.
