Bloodbraid Elf by SteveArgyle Bloodbraid Elf by SteveArgyle
Here we have a lovely amazonian elf who's lost her way. Or perhaps found it.

For followers of Magic: the Gathering, this is a Naya vixen who found life in the barbaric wild of the jungle just a touch too safe and mundane. So she decided to venture to a place where you can become barbecue at any second, just because the land beneath you felt like burping.

I wanted to give her a sense of being an immersed immigrant. She's adopted much of the dress, customs, and ways of her new home, yet retains and incorporates her own history. Not entirely acculturated in this strange land.

For scheme, I thought it'd be fun to experiment with a mostly neutral subject on a highly saturated and active background. Kinda the opposite of what I usually do. It's amazing just how much color we perceive from context alone.

Art direction by Jeremy Jarvis.

This is one of my favorites of yours. Not entirely sure why, though it could be a passing resemblance to Yeva, who is one of my favorite planeswalkers. I guess I'm a sucker for white-blond hair and green eyes.
