Elven Prince by nachtwulf Elven Prince by nachtwulf
Just to prove that I too can do mindlessly complex pen-and-ink stuff if I put my mind to it.

This has nothing to do with anything, really... I just...got bored and had a pen and here it is.
(Original size, 2.5"x3")

I like art nouveau.

Well,

For one thing, I'll say it definitely looks complex and my mind is now wandering in the void as I try sort out each different pattern. Moving on before I give myself a brain aneurysm with that. I like the intricate detail you put into the design. Some of the peices resemble sclay hide or some manner of jewelry/armor tailored to do so, while others you can tell are more similar to cloth or silk. I think my favorite part is the headdress and how the hair is put up, so that it resembles the crest of a bird. Not sure if that was the intent but I like it.

Well, congratulations on a fine piece and "hello" from a newbie to the community!

Okay this is sort of creepy. I had a dream the other night with a man that looked like him in it. On another note I love the detailing and simplicity of it at the same time of its complexity.

UNBELIEVABLE. I am obsessed with feathers, so this really caught my eye. I love the detail. This seems very elven--rooted in natural and organic images, like leaves and feathers, with an otherworldly quality. You should be very proud of this picture.

I know that this isn't like one of your normal art, but I think its really very well done. It reminds me of an Indonesian Paper cutting or something exotic. The details are exquisite.
