Nelf

nelf I don't know if it's done or not, but I know I'm tired of looking at it.

Don't get me wrong, I think I did a pretty good job, I just let it drag on too long. I was making the sketch for this drawing a month ago, and have been working on it fairly steadily since then. It works much better for my brain if I work on something intensively for a week or two, let it sit for a week, and then do finishing touches after I've gotten it off of my active working rotation for a little while.

To translate for you people who don't play World of Warcraft (and seriously, what's wrong with you people?) this is a Night Elf Druid. Which is kind of like saying someone's an intellectual who also likes to read. It's not directly analogous, but it's such a stereotype that it's beyond stereotypical territory and into expected land. Night Elves are not to be confused with Blood elves, hence the common abbreviations 'nelf' and 'belf'.

So while I directly stole WoW clothing designs, quite a bit of it I made up.  I enjoy drawing clothing in the WoW vein, and I think I match the genre pretty well.  Can you tell what stuff I came up with, and what the WoW designers did? (WoW people, lets give the other kids a chance to answer, okay?)  The skirt, belt, and staff are mine, and the corset bit is what one might call 'inspired by' a WoW design. The background is basically a slightly modified screenshot, but I only got to that part after I wanted the whole stinky thing to go away, so don't judge me.

I kind of like the staff. It's all pumpkin-y.
