Woodlore, Woodland Elf

Greetings

This is a drawing I made  for another woodland elf character.


Here's how he came out photoshopped at the first attempt:


I then decided to have another go and make a similar use of layers to the work I had done to the picture of Raven.

The second version looks like this:

Without his jerkin, he looks like this:




As with the image of Raven, I will, at some point,add the remaining more risque versions of this image to the Garden of Dubious Delights pages of my website.

Until next time

Raven, Woodland Elf

Greetings

I have been doing some more experimentation with Photoshop.

Here is a drawing I made of my hero, Raven, eating dreamberries:



Now here is how he came out in photoshop.



I have been playing about with layers, so here he is without his jerkin and sword:


I have created other variations of this image , but they are more appropriate to appear on the Garden of Dubious Delights pages of my website.

I will add them to the Elves page at some point...

Until next time

Small Game Hunter 14

 Greetings

Here is the last one of my new sprites.

This is a Buff Gladiator ( Thispritses Iyamsparticus ) collected in Rome in 1851


I have just been to the Re-enactor's market ( Known as TORM). We usually go, but, after over twenty five years of re-enactment, there is usually quite little on my list.

This time, however, I had quite a substantial list. 

Teddy and I are involved with a costume set for the 2019 World Science Fiction Convention that will be held in Dublin and we need two different thicknesses of leather( in matching brown) for his costume and a set of  black seventeenth century boot butterflies and some long black feathers to go in a hat for mine.

I also wanted some black leather for remaking a large belt pouch and ready-cut half-inch strapping for armour repairs, as well as some sharp glover leather needles and a new hole-punch.

Then I needed to get some more mead for the cellar, an interesting bottle of alcohol as a present for my brother, a new medieval straw hat, an axe handle, some more herbal toothpaste from the Roving Apothecary and two metal banner-holders.

I have never before been so successful in getting stuff from the market. 

The toothpaste had been discontinued ( Bah!) and we couldn't find an axe handle, but we found everything else and ,in addition I bought an interesting Marmalade Whiskey Liqueur ( that just had my name on it !) , found some good black linen to line the doublet of my costume with , got some good linen thread for leatherworking and found a nice small set of bellows to replace the cheap ones I've been using for years.

I also got enough leather strapping to last through several years of broken armour straps and bought a solar topi that is need for another member of the costume set.

Until next time

Woodland Elf

Greetings

Here is another character I created for my Elfsex comic.

He has yet to appear, but I find it's always useful to have characters waiting in the wings...

This is Tailchaser:
